In the Spotlight: Winter Metals

In the Spotlight: Winter Metals

If you’re you’re making the most of the final Cyber Monday sales, then let us help you decide what to go for. We’re putting the spotlight on the best beauty trends and routines for the coming months and sharing the perfect products you can buy on offer today.

With metallic eyeshadow being one of the biggest trends of the season, we’re sharing the best combinations for every look.

Silver Siren

Silver eyeshadow looks incredible, especially against blue eyes. It is one of those looks that can be either incredibly classic (think Grace Kelly and her understated makeup) or modern and minimal.

Our favourite way to wear it is with a silver take on a classic smoky eye. The Bourjois Quad in Bleu Issant is perfect- take the pale silver over the lid, apply the metallic teal to the crease with your perfectly coordinated silver Real Techniques Bold Metals Cut Crease brush, add a touch of the darker blue along the lash line and then highlight the inner eyeand brow bone with the pure silver.

Skip the eyeliner and just use false lashes like these ones from Eylure to give you a fluttering metallic look worthy of any silver screen siren. With all of these on 3 for 2 mix and match this Cyber Monday, why not treat yourself?

Copper Queen

Rose golds and coppers are the hottest shades around at the moment; they are everywhere from homewear to makeup. With their pretty, warm tones, they are an easy way to elevate your everyday eye makeup and add a touch of metal.

For the ultimate copper eye, the shades in Illamasquas’s Vanitas Palette are perfect. With a special offer on this limited edition palette today, there is no better moment to invest.

If you prefer a more travel-friendly palette, then these ones from Maybelline and Bourjois are a perfect alternative; the rich, warm and shimmering coppers are subtle and pretty. Just finish it all off with a touch of highlight with something like the Lord & Berry Luminizer Highlighter & Concealer Stick for the ideal everyday metallic eye.

Golden Girl

Take a little inspiration from the high drama of the 70s and try out a bold gold eye this season. It is the best way to make a statement and pairs oh so well with a classic red lip.

We love covering the lid in a rich bold glitter shadow, like the one in the Bourjois Faux Noirs Quad. If you prefer a more subtle look, then a pale gold like the Bourjois Little Round Pot in Ingenude gives just a touch of light to the eyes.

If you prefer rock and roll, then look no further than the Magnificent Metals Black Gold eyeliner from Stila. A winged eyeliner with this will have everyone falling at your feet.

Make Up Specialist

Major fan of scented candles, Make Up brushes and Highlighter. I’m always on the hunt for those Holy Grail products and my dressing table is covered in more beauty products than I like to admit. As an adopted Northerner originally from Brighton, I spend most my days wondering what all this rain is about. My hair isn’t grateful for the move. Currently loving: NIOD Photography Fluid
