How to Wear Metallic Eye Shadow

Bookmark and Share Posted on 05/14/2012

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.

Peter Thomas Roth Un-wrinkle Turbo: Video Demonstrates Tangible Results » -

Shop the full Peter Thomas Roth skincare range here!

Dozens of commercials and ads feature so-called miracle creams that claim to instantly make users look years younger. However, without any proof or scientific studies to backup the claims, you might as well just slather a lovely-smelling lotion on your face.

Peter Thomas Roth, on the other hand, offers proven results, as demonstrated in a recent video highlighting the results of a consumer study on Peter Thomas Roth Un-Wrinkle Turbo cream.

Peter Thomas Roth Un-Wrinkle Turbo uses a blend of 18 different peptides and neuropeptides known to have anti-aging properties. The cream targets:

  • The “11” lines between the eyebrows.
  • Forehead wrinkles.
  • Nose “scrunch” creases.
  • “Parentheses” at the corners of your mouth.
  • Pout lines.
  • Marionette lines.

 

«Philip B Oud Royal Forever Shampoo In The Zoe Report! -

The Zoe Report gave a hail to the hair this morning in their newsletter, giving big props to Philip B's new OUD Royal Forever Shine Shampoo & Conditioner! This just landed on our shelves and we too are amazed at at the transformative properties in this fabulous duo. If you're after the 'glossy-glossy' like Fergie says, these products will produce a shinier, silkier and more bouncy head of hair. The conditioner is full of nourishing ingredients (but also remains free of sulfates and sodium chloride), and also includes the first thing of it's kind, time-released botanical hydrators! They also made mention of Philip B's Lavender Hair & Body Shampoo that protects and preserves hair color as well as giving a much needed deep cleanse.
