Metallic Beauty Trend for Fall - Shine On!

Fall runways were lit up with metallic fabrics, embellishments, and accessories.  Shimmering lamé, shiny silks and satins, leathers, jewelry, studs, and rhinestones were a common theme.  You might think the late seventies and early eighties were back with a vengeance.  Disco-era glamour is having a moment, especially for evening, and can be incorporated into your wardrobe and beauty looks for 2017 without harkening back to Studio 54. Think of adding a bit of shimmering depth to your make-up for a fall update that plays with shading to create just the right intensity and glimmer. 

Golden Eye:  Keep the blending to a minimum and create a well-defined eye shadow shape in a brassy gold shadow.  Highlight the brow bones and temples to draw the light to your eyes.  Use a liquid eye liner and create full black lashes for eye drama.  Choose a rich red satin-finish lip color and a rosy peach blush. 

Purple Rain:  Use deep metallic plum tones blended together along the crease of the eyelid and highlight the inner corner of the eyes with a bright silver shadow and finish with heavy black lashes.  Use a rose-pink lip color with a satin finish and a plum-toned blush.

Eye of the Tiger:  Choose metallic browns and greys to create a swooped cat eye shape, using a highlighter on the brow bone up to the eyebrow.  Outline the entire eye in liquid liner and use a metallic gold shadow on the inner corners of the eyes to create a cat-eye-like effect. Wear a metallic bronze lip color and a warm berry blush. 

Bronze Goddess:  For a more ethereal metallic eye, choose a lighter golden shade and blend it all over the lid up to the brow bone.  Skip the eyeliner and use a mascara that separates and defines rather than volumizes the lashes.  Choose a deep berry metallic finish lip color, and a peach-copper blush.

Power Pout: The Dramatic Berry Lip

For some of us a natural lip, even in the summer, is just not an option.  I love the eye-catching drama of a deep berry lip that, depending on my outfit, can be the height of workplace pull-together sophistication, or night out drama.  There is a cinematic quality to a strong lip color that is striking and powerful while at the same time extremely feminine.  A dark burgundy lip emits strength and is a no-holds-barred expression of feminine power. 

This year’s take on this beauty classic means a matte complexion highlighted along the brow bones, temples, down the nose and on the chin, along with full eyebrows, brushed and filled in.  Skip the eyeliner and have a light touch on the mascara so your eyes don’t even try to compete with your lips.  Let your eyebrows be the counterpoint to balance the look.

Shrinking violets take note: a power pout like this can give a woman a jolt of moxie so don’t be afraid to go bold. You might just find your alter ego.
