Beauty Boy: Trend spotlight: Metallic


Adding a metallic finish to your makeup can instantly transform your overall look.

Joshua R. Waller | Interrobang | Lifestyles | January 23rd, 2017

With 2016 being filled with everything matte, from foundations to eye shadows to the huge craze of matte liquid lipsticks, 2017 is starting off with a 360-degree flip in trend. Spotted on many runway shows, promoted largely by makeup artist superstar Pat McGrath and starting to fill the cosmetic market, metallic makeup is making a comeback in a huge way.

First spotted on the runways (Louis Vuitton and Anthony Vaccarello), metallic makeup stepped into the spotlight in the most peculiar way. It wasn't on the eyes nor was it on the lips; it was first seen on model's ears and earlobes. While it sounds entirely odd, it looked quite beautiful on stage and has now transitioned down to everyday wear.

One of the most beautiful products to hit the market is Stila's Glitterrati lip top coats. This ultra light, water-based formula glides overtop of your favourite matte lipsticks and transforms it into an incredibly sparkly and metallic finish. The greatest part is that it is smooth enough that you don't feel the texture of glitter on your lips. As of now this product comes in two shades, Transcend, a soft pink and Ignite, a rich berry.

If you are a fan of the classic metallic pigments that have an irresistible shine, you must check out Pat McGrath's Metalmorphosis collection. The stunning products come in classic gold, silver, bronze and copper colours that compliment every skin tone. One swipe of these products and you will truly fall in love. The amount of pigment in these products makes it look like you are putting liquid gold on your eyes.

Another must-have metallic lip product is the new Jeffree Star metallic velour liquid lip formula. Like his matte liquid lipsticks, the new launches are extremely pigmented but this time they have a metallic sheen finish. No Tea, No Shade is a stunning colour that mixes the right amount of purple and brown and is perfect for dayto- night wear. These lip products are also completely vegan and cruelty-free.

With this trend just starting to emerge, try out some of these gorgeous products and see how adding a little bit of metallic makeup can completely transform your look. Whether it is your lips, eyes or even highlights on your complexion, trying out these metallic beauties is a must for 2017.
