Metallic Fantastic: How To Rock Metallic Makeup For The Summer

More fun than matte, but more grown-up than glitter, metallic makeup in jewel tones, bronze, and platinum are absolute beauty must-haves! Plus, with summer fast approaching, we're out to play up on the lights! 


Check out our top picks for achieving this megawatt look!


The secret to luminous model skin: A dusting of soft silver highlighter on the high points of cheeks. Roll a fluffy powder brush over Guerlain Météorites Powder For the Face—they give off a white light that masks imperfections—for a subtle youth-enhancing lift. 



Sleek Makeup Solstice Highlighting Palette instantly enhances the complexion with a radiant glow, the highly pigmented metallic finishes create a gorgeous luminous sheen on the skin.


Frosty lips are back in action. This creamy, gold-flecked formula of M.A.C Metallic Lipstick in Devotional will give you major ‘90s nostalgia. 



Line your eyes with Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes in Silver. It’s highly pigmented, and its formula glides on easily and doesn’t run or fade even under the most extreme conditions.

Inspired by the world’s most glamorous city skylines, Mary Kay Eye Palette in City Sophisticate includes four complementary shades that mix perfectly for endless eye-catching looks.
