It’s prom season, and the girls are going gaga over metallic eye shadow. But you don’t need to be a teenager or use prom as an excuse in order to experiment with the latest gilded eye makeup. The trick to wearing metallic eye shadow is apply it so it looks beautiful and sexy, not clownish and over the top.
Tips for using metallic eye shadow include:
Carefully match shades. If you’re not sure how to mix and match the latest shimmering colors, cheat with Jemma Kidd makeup. The Jemma Kidd Makeup School cosmetics line includes I-ris Enhancers that provide a trio of perfectly matching metallic colors for your blue, green or brown eyes.
Wear primer. Keep the glimmer in place by using an eye shadow primer over your eyelids as a base. If you don’t have a primer, a cream shadow will do the trick. Let the base dry before applying your metallic eye shadow.
Build up the intensity. Metallic makeup is loud; layer the eye shadow a bit at a time until you get the look you desire. Keep in mind that the slightest hint of shimmer can be enough to give you a dramatic look.
Use common sense. Remember: If the style of metallic makeup you’re attempting looks silly on someone else, it will also look silly on you.
Keep it simple. Keep the attention on your eyes by toning down the makeup on the rest of your face. Limit the amount of blush you use, and keep your lip color natural.
Since wearing metallic eye shadow can be tricky, it’s best to experiment with it well before your big night.
