Make-up Artist Louise Dartford shows us how to crash the Christmas party in the best natural metallic make-up…..
GOLD: Gold is great for all skin tones, use it on the eyes to brighten and on the skin to highlight and add luminosity. Try RMS Beauty’s Solar Cream Eye Shadow for a warm golden shimmer or ILIA Beauty Sway Illuminate & Bronze Multi-Stick for more of a brazen bronze.
- HOW TO USE: Use fingers to apply to the eyelid (less is more), take it up onto the brow bone then follow down in a C shape along the cheekbones. Apply to the inner corners of the eyes to brighten further – this is great for tired eyes. TOP TIP: Add a touch to your Cupid’s bow and lower lip to make lips appear fuller.
SILVER: Use silver to create a dramatic eye for the party season. Try Inika Mineral Eye Shadow in Gunmetal - apply dry for a sparkle, or wet for a shimmery sheen.
- HOW TO USE: With a brush ‘press’ it all over the lid for a soft smokey eye. Studio 78 Paris Loose Powder Eyeshadow in Forest Run is perfect to add shimmer to any eye. Work it with a black eye pencil for a smouldering look. Smudge the pencil into the lashes all around the eye and then apply your chosen silver over the top.
