Metallic Palette for the Face: Going for Gold!

Whether you’re the bride, birthday girl or having a date night for your anniversary, metallics are flattering on everyone. A little goes a long way when you’re using products with sheen so be sure to not overdo it.

For the night out | If you’re using a strong smoky eye, pair it with a soft shimmer lip gloss. Top your daytime nails with jeweled nail polish or just dip the tips.

The daytime glow | An all over face gel like MAC’s Mineralize Gel will be all the sheen you need with a cream blush and some mascara.

Pretty bridal details | Use a soft gold powder to highlight the inner corners of your eyes. The camera will pick up on the subtle use of metal. Or, carefully use a bronze eyeliner in the inner parts of your eye for a warm undertone to your overall look.
