golden rules:  rock the metallic trend
Glisten this season under the influence of copper, silver and gold.  This trend is great for the extra wow factor at night. Dot on a little silver shimmer on the center of your eyelid or swipe gold, bronze or copper across your entire eyelid from the lash line to the crease. When playing with this look keep the rest of the face natural and minimal so you don't overpower your look.

Rule No. 1: Choose an eye shadow without large glitter particles. Finely milled pigments that produce a sheen, rather than a sparkle, are where itís at. Try Intensif-Eye in Wish which contains luxe shades of metallic gold and silver.

Rule No. 2: Donít pile it on. Only apply just enough color or the excess will travel as the evening progresses. Apply sparingly with a Squirrel Large Fluff Brush.

Rule No. 3: Play with textures. From sheer to opaque, experiment with different intensities of copper, silver and gold.  For more dramatic color, try foiling-  mix color with Liquif-Eye.  This also transforms ordinary eye shadow into liquid eyeliner that won't smudge, smear or disappear! Holds its own when you swim, splash, or even shed a few tears.

Rule No. 4: Donít restrict yourself to just one shade. Metallic eye shadows are versatile and compliment every skin tone.

Rule No. 5: Pick any formula Ė cream or powder Ė of eye shadow you like best. Neither should crease if you use pressed powder on your eyelid first.
