Metallic makeup is back! The 80s trend for icing-sugar-like metallics cheeks, lips and eyes is here again and we love it. This is one trend we are very on board with and it can be achieved easily at home. From sugary sweet highlighters to juicy metallic lips, these are our favourites.

RMS Beauty Living Luminizer Highlighter

This beautiful highlight balm from RMS is not only a best-seller but it brings a gorgeous dewy glow to the complexion and is suitable for all skin types.

benefit High Brow Pencil Highlighter Glow

We couldn't possibly neglect our brows! The Benefit High Brow Glow is a wonderful multi-tasker; you can use it to highlight the brow bone and to neaten the eyebrow, messy brows be gone!

Stila Magnificant Metal Eyeliners

An expected way to incorporate an iced element into your makeup is with an eyeliner and they don't get much more stunning than Stila's Magnificent Metal offerings.

Stila Magnificent Metals Lip Gloss

We just love metallic iced lips and these Magnificent Metal Glosses from Stila add such a lovely radiance and an extra dimension to the lips.

Estée Lauder Pure Color Instant Intense Eye Shadow Trio 2g in Smoked Chrome

Probably the easiest way to add a bit of shimmer to your day is through your eyeshadow. This highly-pigmented trio from Estee Lauder perfectly brightens the eye area making us look more awake.

Ciaté London Confetti Paint Pot

Feel like going full on iced glam (who doesn't)? Why not try a glitter nail polish? We love this silver and holographic offering from Ciate London!

Lipstick Queen Lipstick - Ice Queen

If you want to go all out ice then you can't get much more perfect than Lipstick Queen's 'Ice Queen'. It glides on the lips leaving a stunning frosted silver hue and it can be worn alone or to over the top of your favourite lipstick.

Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator

This beautiful baked highlighter is one of the prettiest we've seen, with its shimmering swirls. It can be used for a gorgeous strobe effect and we have fallen in love with the 'Charming Pink' shade, which looks like metallic candy floss!
