A huge trend in eye makeup this season is metallic shades. The look can be worn subtly during the daytime, or done in a more dramatic fashion for evening soirees. Regardless of the occasion, the luminous look is sure to flatter your features and attract attention.
The Early Show on CBS recently ran a segment highlighting the trend, and experts offered viewers a few tips to perfecting the look.
Celebrity makeup artist Mally Roncal advised ladies to use metallic shades as an eyeliner during the day, and applying the product all over their lids to achieve a more glam effect for nighttime.
Roncal also suggested that women use an eyeshadow base to prevent the color from running.
Of course, after applying metallic powders to your lids, it's important to remember that your eyelashes are worthy of attention, too.
Use an acrylic-based tubing mascara that won't smear or clump during application, or fade as the day (or night) wears on.
The unique product forms a seal around lashes that is water-resistant, and will come off when you're ready for it to - with soap and water and gentle pressure.
