Gold, bronze, silver, and jewel tones are glittering on lids, lips, nails, and cheeks this fall. We’re adoring the shimmering spectrum this new trend offers.

Pair the metallic hues with neutral tones, highlighting one facial facet at a time to really make them shine.

Go bold and cover your entire lid, or experiment with a subtle shine and a little bit of eyeliner. Enhance the look with cat eyes.

Smooth on lipstick, lip gloss, or lip stain with reflective qualities. For a DIY approach, combine base pigments with Vaseline and apply with a lip brush or Q-tip.

Incorporate metallic shades to dress up just the nail tips, coat the entire nail, or decorate your talons with art.

    I love all of these looks. But I must say that I did not think those bold metallic colors would be so gorgeous on such a dark complexion, like mine. Thanks to you, I’m going to try some of these looks. They are so stunningly beautiful!!!
