It’s no secret that metallic eyeshadow is a major eyeshadow trend this year. And while it’s totally up for interpretation 一 you can sport the shimmering trend many different ways 一 you might be questioning where to start since it seems so general. So if you’re looking for some inspiration or guidance on how to create a gorgeous metallic eyeshadow look, keep reading. Ahead, we’re sharing three takes on how to try out this beauty trend. And don’t be fooled, despite the light-catching statement they make on the eyes, they’re relatively easy to create.
1. A Simple Wash Of Color
Perhaps the easiest way to create a beautiful metallic eyeshadow look is by packing a single wash of metallic color onto your lids. Here’s how to get the look:
Step 1. First, prime your eyelids with an eyeshadow primer or concealer and blend it out with your fingertips or a flat eyeshadow brush.
Step 3. Finally, top off the look with your favorite mascara.
Editor’s tip: Remember that while metallic shades are typically thought of as bronze, silver and gold, “metallic” in makeup really just means lustrous. So, feel free to get creative and experiment with all kinds of fun, shimmering colors.
2. As Part Of A Smokey Eye
Adding a pop of metallic shimmer to the center of your eyelids as the focal point of a smokey eye is a perfect way to get in on the trend. Here’s how to get the look:
Step 1. Start by creating your smokey eye as usual. To make it metallic, you can replace your base shade with a shimmering option, or you can apply a metallic shadow, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24H Eyeshadow, on the center of the lids right before applying eyeliner. Adding metallic shine just to the center of the eyelids with your fingers adds just the right amount of dimension to the look.
Step 2. Define your upper lash line by creating winged eyeliner with a pigmented eyeliner pencil, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof, Up to 24HR Pencil Eyeliner, or a liquid eyeliner, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible The Super Slim Liquid Eyeliner.
Step 3. Top off your look with a volumizing mascara that will complement the boldness of your smokey eye. The L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Washable Mascara is perfect for this type of makeup because it creates really defined, thick lashes that don’t feel weighed down.
