The Belk Beauty Event has arrived! With the changing of the seasons, comes lots of new makeup trends. From matte lips, to metallic eyes, there’s something for everyone to love!
The fall trend I’m most into, is Metallic. It’s been seen across the runways of the most prestigious fashion designers, so naturally I’m all about it! Whether it’s luminous lips, or icy eyes, this trend definitely has my heart skipping a beat.
B.E. ON POINT WITH BELK
Thanks to the Belk Beauty Event, I was able to B.E. my most metallic self! 😉 With brands like Urban Decay, MAC, and NYX, there are a ton of options to choose from. But, don’t let the word metallic throw you off. These products are very versatile, and create looks that glimmer and glow.
FALL TREND: METALLIC
To achieve an all over glow, I purchased MAC Strobe Cream in Peachlite. This peachy pink face base creates a luminous complexion, and is designed for use with or without foundation. The effect is subtle, but beautiful!
For the eyes, I went with a metallic base from NYX. The Lid Lingerie cream shadow in Rose Pearl is so creamy and easy to blend, and is fully opaque in just one swipe! To make the NYX base pop, I picked up a MAC Dazzleshadow in Slow/Fast/Slow. This stunning shimmery shade is great for creating a shimmery lid, without the look chunky glitter.
To really make my eyes shimmer, I grabbed an Urban Decay Liquid Moondust shadow in Chem Trail. This stunning metallic gold is perfect for brightening the inner corner!
Since metallic is the trend, I went with a matching Frost lipstick from MAC in the shade Gel. This frosty nude wears beautifully on it’s own, but looks even better with a MAC Dazzleglass in Sugarrimmed!
First, I primed my face with MAC Strobe Cream (mentioned above), then I reached for Lancome Teint Idole stick foundation. I concealed my under eyes with the Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer in Light, and set it all with MAC Mineralized Skin Finish Natural.
The eyes are the star of the show! First, I applied the NYX Lid Lingerie all over the lids, then I topped it with the MAC Dazzleshadow. To darken my crease, I used the Urban Decay Naked Heat palette, mixing Scorched and Ember. Next, I applied a black liquid liner, then applied a pair of false lashes from MAC in the style Don’t Shame Me. The final touch, was applying the Urban Decay Liquid Moondust shadow in my inner corners. It’s so sparkly and metallic!
The lips are just as metallic, but still very wearable. After applying MAC Gel lipstick, I topped it with MAC Dazzleglass lipgloss in Sugarrimmed. The final result is frosty, shimmery, and runaway ready!
The final touch was to bronze up my cheeks. For that, I used the Bobbi Brown bronzer in Medium 2. For a little more glow, I then applied a Bobbi Brown highlighter in Pink. It’s super wearable, so I used it all over, on my cheekbones, bridge of my nose, and my cupids bow!
OTHER PRODUCTS USED:
