This is how you wear hot metal eyes
Now is the perfect time to test drive new trends and give your make-up bag a shake-up.
Set your sights on the party eye trend where more is more. Eyeshadows are worn multi-tonally. Long, fluttery lashes remain in high demand. And well-groomed, but not over-plucked, brows are essential. While a single, matte shadow can appear flat, second and even third shade applications can add a new dimension to your look.
Metallics are everywhere this season, and our lids should be no exception. Select a metallic shadow one or two shades darker than your base shadow, applied sparingly along the upper lash line. This will create an ombre effect. Keep reading for how to get the look…

A full-bodied purple-red shade adds a sophisticated feel to your look. Right now we’re loving Napoleon Perdis Colour Disc in All That Shiraz.
2 L A Y E R O N T O P
Try a daring grape shade with a frosty finish to accentuate those eyes, such as the Napoleon Perdis Colour Disc in High-Voltage Violet.
3 A D D S O M E S H A P E
A strong set of brows will help to shape your face. Don’t forget to fill well and brush into place. To get the look try Pixi Natural Brow Duo in Soft Black.
4 B A T T E R U P
Nothing makes your eyes pop quite like a set of false eyelashes. For the false-lash novice, strip lashes are easier to manage than individuals. To finish off your look try Shu Uemura Lashes in Soft Cross, $25.
