Metallic Accents

Metallics are a trend still going hard at the moment, from shoes to skirts, everyone is doing it!  And I for one do not own enough metallic items.  I find such bold trends are a little difficult to parade around Qatar, and that got me thinking... how could we incorporate more metallics a little more subtlety?

Well it turns out, incorporating metallics into your daily life if pretty god damn easy at the moment, as metallic makeup is EVERYWHERE this autumn; in the high street stores, designers runways, magazines, Instagram.... you name it!
To create this look on your eyes is easy, think glitter/shimmer and pow you have the look. 
I came across this little gem online at M.A.C from the Rocky Horror Picture Show collection, which is unfortunately sold out, but hey I'm sure it will be in Qatar soon!
Bobbi Brown also have a great selection of shadows and creams.
Chanel's Illusion D'Ombre have a selection of metallic eye shadow shades. Below are a few from their range.
A must-try hue this A/W is electric blue, it was seen on the runway by Anna Sui, Kenzo & Dior.  Try M.A.C's Electric Eel for QR95.
Also check out drug store brands such as Maybeline, Rimmel and Bourjois.
Ok... so its not like we haven't seen metallic eyes done before, in fact most of us can have a good ol' rummage though our makeup boxes and drag out some old eye shadow pallets that we haven't used since the 90's.  But here is a new one to me.  My friend Tenneka brought the idea to my attention in her whatsapp pic, could it be...? Metallic lipstick?...
With a little research I realised; this is trend that I want in on! My faves are from NYX Cosmetics which are really reasonably priced at QR22 and Lime Crime. which are a little more expensive at QR65....What do you think? Would you rock this trend?

Unicorn Lipstick: Lime Crime

Remember, when attempting this look, avoid using metallics all over, opt for lips or eyes or your face could end up resembling the inside of a box of Quality Streets.
Much love,

  1. Really like the lipsticks, not sure I could pull off some of the brighter colours though. I would definitely try out the purpley ones though!
