Recently, clumpy lashes, negative space liner, and graphic cat eyes have been popping up on everything from red carpets to runways, and now, the beauty world is introducing a new trend to the mix: metallic shadows and glittery lids. The trend was spotted on the Fall/Winter 2016 runways, although celebrities first embraced the statement look at the futuristic 2016 Manus x Machina themed Met Gala.
For Fall 2016, the trend will come in many unique forms, from glittery, sequin lids to subtle metallic liner meticulously placed on the inner corners of the eyes for a look that brings us back to the '90s. Because we know that adopting bold runway looks isn't always easy when it comes to rocking it in real, everyday life, Get The Look is here to help you familiarize yourself with the trend and show you how to wear it in your day-to-day life.
SEQUINS AND METALLIC SHADOWS: MUST-HAVES FOR FALL 2016/17
Although we spotted this look on the Fall 2016/17 runways, stars like Suki Waterhouse and L'Oreal muse Irina Shayk have already adopted the look for red carpet and social events, proving its timeless versatility. This fall/winter, glitter will come in the form of smoky eyes that cover your entire eyelid, or sit alone just above the lid for a more unique take on the trend. If you really want to make a statement, you can even try covering your brows with glitter – a look we've spotted on celebrities like Lily Aldridge, who sported golden glitter brows to the 2016 Met Gala.
For a more everyday appropriate look, place a small dash of glitter on the inner or outer corners of your eyelid, then fill in the rest of your lids when it comes time to hit the town by night.
As for the rest of your makeup, opt for a natural, dewy complexion that will glow next to your already glowing lids, and tone the look down during the day. Use a liquid foundation or BB cream that will provide full, lightweight coverage and give you a healthy glow, then enhance the projecting parts of your face with L'Oreal's Infallible Contour Palette. Highlight your cheekbones, chin, forehead and bridge of nose for a look that will glow in the sunlight. Finally, apply a thin coat of mascara to outline the eyes, enhancing your glitter accents.
Metallic shadows have already began making their way onto red carpets and runways, but this Fall 2016, the look will be an absolute beauty must-have. Iridescent, metallic shadows are great for enhancing the eyes for a sophisticated, futuristic look that's perfect for a night out. For a more subtle look, sweep a coat of metallic shadow underneath your lower lash line and in the corners of your eyes for an instantly brighter look.
Keep things simple on the rest of your face by leaving your lashes bare, letting the metallic shadow steal the show. Create a contrast on your complexion by opting for a matte finish foundation (powder formulas are best for achieving this look), and a bold lip – think red or plum – for the perfect statement look!
