BEAUTY TREND: METALLIC PARTY MAKEUP

By Eleanor Dunne, 7 November 2018

Party season is the perfect time to play with maximalist makeup, even if you normally go for a more natural vibe. And what better trend to try than a dancefloor-ready metallic look? To get you up to speed, here’s our guide to getting your shine on this season.

Start with a great primer, which will ensure your makeup stays on for ages  you'll be grateful once you hit that dancefloor. Next, reach for the foundation. We're loving MAC's Studio Fix at the moment for two reasons: you can layer it up to create the look you want, and it's available on ASOS in 53 shades. That means it’s super-easy to find your perfect match. Top tip: start from the centre of your face and blend outwards for an even finish.

Next comes the fun part: the eyes. Blend a dark silver or gold shadow on your eyelid with a brush up to the crease. Then, apply a lighter metallic shade on the inner corner to dial it up another notch. Want some HD definition? Add a liquid liner to the top and bottom. Then, if you want to get a high-gloss finish, go for a translucent eye gloss like this great non-sticky formula from ASOS DESIGN. And the glow doesn't have to stop at the eyes: a metallic blush and some highlighter on the cheeks and brow bones just earned this look a gold star.
