Find your best light this fall with metallics, which appeared on the runways in every possible incarnation.
CHEEK TO CHEEK
Illuminate your natural complexion with a gorgeous sweep of velvety shimmer on the cheek. Achieve a subtle luminosity with a highlighting powder or, for a contouring effect, glide a light stick along your cheek bones. Intensify your look with a product such as Hourglass’ Ambient Metallic Strobe Lighting Palette, which has pearl particles that give skin a healthy, reflective glow.
An easy way to tap into this season’s most luxe beauty trend is to swap matte for metallic lips. Opt for a touch of sparkle with a high-shine lip gloss or go full-on drama with Christian Louboutin’s Loubilaque Lip Lacquer in Rouge Louboutin Metalissime. Can’t decide? Mix it up with Dior’s Rouge Dior Double Rouge lipstick, which has a matte exterior and a metallic heart.
Whatever shade of eye shadow you go for this fall, make sure it’s metallic. The fall runways were awash with glistening hues of gold, copper and silver dabbed along the lower lashline and painted across lids with wild abandon. For night, step it up with sultry, smoky pigments accented with Guerlain Gold Light Topcoat on you lashes.
HARD AS NAILS
From solid colors to intricate nail art that looks like you’ve dipped your fingers in molten metal, metallic lacquers are having a moment this season. Whatever your preference for your fall manicure refresh, you can’t go wrong with a gilded polish such as YSL’s La Laque Couture in Gold Fire for a touch of decadence.
