How to rock metallics.

Metallics are all the rage right now so you gotta try them out! First of all you need to know what will work for you and we are going to start with the eyes!

Blue eyes – Work silver/monochrome shadow with lashings of black mascara!

Green eyes – Make your eyes beautiful with gold tones on your lids and sparkly mascara!

Brown eyes – Use metallic affect colours such as shimmery greens or midnight blues to make your eyes pop!


If you prefer a bold lip then try these tips!

Fair skin – If you want to stand out try a sparkling red hue or if you prefer a less bold choice then try a golden hue with a glitter dusting.

Medium skin – Try copper tones with just a hint of sparkle round the cupid’s bow.

Dark skin – Shimmering dark plums or bold gold colours will suit you down to the ground.


To make your skin metallic cool then follow these steps:

1) Use a illuminating primer to bring out a beautiful glow. Lumi magique primer from L’Oreal is £9.99 from Boots:

2) Add a sheer dusting of glitter to the temples and brush in a gentle diagonal downwards motion – any glitter eyeshadow will do. Try 2true Eyeshadow Dazzlers only £1.99 from Superdrug:

3) Highlight your face on the tip of your nose, under the brow bones and just above the cheekbones. Collection 2000 Illuminating Touch Concealer is a steal at £4.99 in Boots:


FINALLY, I have to mention Barry M’s Magnetic Nail Polish which gives a beautiful effect to your nails! At £4.99 – you must try it!
