Fashion Week trend to try: metallic eyeshadow looks we love!

When it comes to scouting out the latest trends, there's no better place to look than on the runways of Fashion Week! Following some stunning displays in both New York and London, the stylish event hit Italy's fashion capital, Milan, with force, upping the style stakes and providing plenty of beauty inspiration!

Love at first sight

While the old Fashion Week beauty standbys - tousled waves, minimalist makeup, and graphic cat eyes - were all there, there was one fresh trend we couldn't help but notice: metallic eyeshadow appeared on runway after runway... and we simply couldn't get enough!

While your first metallic eyeshadow was probably more like a chalky powder with large chunks of glitter mixed in, today's shimmery shadows are much more refined and comfortable to wear, with a buildable sheen that can be as "subtle" or "statement" as you wish!

We love this trend because it's bold enough to be a look on its own, yet it doesn't overpower the face. And best of all, shimmer attracts light to the eye area, so you can fake yourself awake in - literally - the blink of an eye!

Runway inspiration

Alberta Ferretti

Soft champagne shadow brightens the inner corners, lids, and lower lashlines, while a rosy bronze shade is blended at the outer corners and straight up to the brow bones for added drama. For more information on this luminous, frosted beauty look, follow our step by step tutorial.

Giorgio Armani

A soft shimmery lilac is applied to the lids and lower lash lines, before the top lashes are loaded up with several coats of black mascara for doll-like results! Teamed with soft pink blush and sheer lip balm, this look is sweet and feminine.


If earthy tones are more your speed, consider completing your next "nude" makeup look with a soft terracotta smoky eye. This soft, shimmery shadow frames the eyes to put your pretty peepers on full display!

Les Copains

There's no way to boost a bronzed complexion quite like a wash of sheer gold shadow on the eyelids. You might even consider ditching the eyeshadow in favor of a golden liquid illuminator for a truly natural-looking finish! Want to get the look? Right this way...


For the bold among you, consider this edgy and modern silver look! You'll want to apply your shadow wet, to give the pigment more color intensity and staying power. Just follow the contour of the brow bones, then clean up the lines with a Q-tip dipped in micellar water.

So, did any of these fabulous looks catch your eye?
