The Golden Rules

The golden rules
How to rock the metallic trend

Evening glisten under the influence of copper, silver and gold eyeshadows.

Rule No. 1: Choose an eyeshadow without large glitter particles. Finely milled pigments that produce a sheen, rather than a sparkle, are where it’s at.

Rule No. 2: Don’t pile it on. Only apply just enough colour or the excess will travel as the evening progresses.

Rule No. 3: Play with textures. From sheer to opaque, experiment with different intensities of copper, silver and gold.

Rule No. 4: Don’t restrict yourself to just one shade. Metallic eyeshadows are versatile and compliment every skin tone.

Rule No. 5: Pick any formula – cream or powder – of eyeshadow you like best. Neither should crease if you use pressed powder on your eyelid first.
