Take a cue from nature: As the leaves start to change color, so should your makeup palette. Metal hues, like gold, silver and bronze, are popping up everywhere, including shimmery, metallic nail polishes, and even a few metallic makeup offerings! Read on for a few tips and tricks form you favorite blogging beauty buff on how to be a heavy metal superstar!
First off, who doesn’t love a fresh mani? Um, that’s right, EVERYONE loves a fun new nail color! This season, mirror finishes and metallics are popping up everywhere, and we’ve got the buzz on how to make your nails stand out. This spring, nail polish giant Essie has put out a new line called Mirror Metallics. Five all new shades in a metallic finish that are sure to make waves. No Place Like Chrome is a bold silver shade, Good as Gold is, well, metallic gold, Blue Rhapsody is a shiny, dusty blue shade, Nothing Else Metals, is a very nice lavendar metallic color, and the big daddy color, Penny Talk, is a gorgeous copper metal that will compliment any beauty’s skin tone. Essie polishes are always on trend, and new collections can be available only for a limited time, so hurry down to your local Planet Beauty store to snatch up your own– before they’re gone for good!
Also making headlines with a few new metallic nail colors is the always on trend Deborah Lippman, with her mirrored chrome colors. With names like “Sugar Daddy” (an antique looking champagne pink) “Swagga Like Us” (oxidized copper teal) and “Private Dancer” (gilded ultra violet). Simply paint on two coats, and follow up with a top coat like “Umbrella” which waterproofs your mani, or “Addicted to Speed” if you can’t seem to give your restless hands enough time to dry in a normal amount of time!
If you want to make a metal statement with your makeup, look no farther than the amazing Smashbox Cosmetics! Metallic eyes are taken to the next level with Limitless 15 hour wear cream eye shadows in 12 super creamy, long lasting, on trend metallic colors. Developed in Smashbox studios to take long wearing color to the next level! These super luxe, super saturated shadows glide on and stay put, even through the longest photo shoots. This blogger has a few of the colors, and LOVES “Stone,” a deep olive grey, and “Fern,” a deep forest green. Perfect for combining and layering together to create depth, these shadows won’t crease, and can be applied with either a brush of your choosing, or easily with your fingers! Make sure to start with a good primer– this blogger (as we know) LOVES and swears by Too Faced’s Shadow Insurance, which creates a barrier between your eye shadow and your eyelid, creating a perfect canvas for smooth, crease free, vibrant shadow creations all day and night!
