Look I Love: Metallic Makeup

At Christian Dior’s 2013 Haute Couture Show, the models were literally sparkling. Pat McGrath wasn’t stingy with the iridescent powder, and created shimmering gilded lips in colors that complemented each model’s specific skin tone. In addition, a thin strip of shimmer was drawn across the top lashlines, and dabbed at the inner corners of the eye.  The look was paired with bare skin and slicked-back hair.

I’m dying to try this look!  Although I subscribe to the same makeup routine every day, this shimmery alternative is so tempting for summertime.  To incorporate this trend into my usual day-to-day, I’ll add a little glitz to my signature black eyeshadow and try out a metallic-tinged nude gloss for my lips!

What do you think of these foiled lips? Would you ever try them for a night out?
