A shimmery metallic frock is a winter wardrobe staple - simply add a pair of black tights and black pumps (or booties) and you're ready to rock! Read on for three beauty looks to match this hot trend.
With the following beauty recommendations, you can take it as far as you want! Choose one look for a touch of beauty inspiration, add a second if you want to step up your game, or try all three together to complete the entire look - it's all up to you!
#1 - Rocker Eyes
Metallic textures add a touch of edginess to a typically feminine dress, give your peepers a similar sexy edginess with black-rimmed rocker eyes. This look is made easy with a black gel liner, such as Glamorous Minerals Gel Eyeliner. The formula stays put all day (and all night!) and even comes with a clever built-in brush for intense precision. Simply glide the gel liner across your entire upper lid and use whatever is left on your brush to line the lower waterline - instant rock chick!
#2 - Illuminated Cheeks
Whilst you want to avoid using too many shimmery products on your face (your metallic frock has enough of it!) - an illuminator is an exception. Add a touch of sheen to your cheeks for a healthy glow, and to balance out the dark eye makeup. We are loving MeMeMe's Beat the Blues Illuminator in 'Sunbeam', an iridescent gold liquid illuminator. The liquid formula allows for easy blending - just swipe it across the top of the cheeks and blend with fingers. If you want a more all-over glow, apply to the brow bone, the bridge of the nose, the cupid's bow and chin.
#3 - Dark Sparkly Nails
The 'less shimmer' rule should be scrapped with it comes to your nails - don't be afraid to sparkle up your nails to rival your metallic dress! Try a dark, moody shimmer nail polish to match the rocker chick feel, we recommend Mode's Glitter Enamel in 'Gothic Crown'. The black based polish is loaded with silver glitter, providing high gloss shimmer in a chip-resistant formula. Not to mention that at only $2.45, it definitely won't break the bank (shhh...keep it your little beauty secret!)
