Shine this Fall in Metallics

Metallic makeup is one of the best trends this fall, whether on the eyes, lips or nails.  The new Ellis Faas line of metallics, Lights, is liquid but it dries upon application, making for a light texture that goes on ultra smooth.

Kevyn Aucoin also has a line I love, The Molten Metallic — these are soft and multi-dimensional with the most intense pigments for a voluminous metallic reflection. 


Pro Tips

Don’t use a eye lid primer. I like to use Ellis Faas concealer to lighten the lid and smooth out skin.

Make a choice: either eyes or lips.

Wear metallics alone for a dramatic effect or over lipstick.

Nails can go with it all!
