Summer Trends: Metallic Shades


Hi guys! A few weeks ago I did a post on the Graphic Eye which was a summer trend that I was fascinated by on the Trending at Sephora page online. I talked a bit about the trend and showed you my take on it. Today, I’m going to be talking about Metallic Shades with is another summer trend that Sephora is reporting on.

The Metallic Shades trend is all about adding dimension to the eyes with rich, metallic shades. As soon as I saw the Lorac Pro Eye Shadow Palette 2, I knew these shades were meant for this trend. The bottom row of the palette is all shimmery shades that appear to be on the metallic side when swatched or applied. So, with that said, I’ve done two metallic shades looks using this palette.

Look #1: Purple Chrome

Transition: Nectar
Crease: Plum
Lid: Chrome
Under eye: Chrome and Silver

Look #2: Silver & Smoky

Transition: Nectar
Crease: Charcoal
Lid: Silver
Outer-V: Charcoal and Black
Under eye: Charcoal and Silver

In keeping with the metallic theme, for both looks I used the Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in Trance. For the first look I paired it with the Essence Lip Pencil in the shade In the Nude. For the second look I wore it on it’s own. The second look was what I was wearing on my face for my One Year Blogiversary post photo.

I’m really enjoying this mini series, I’m hoping to get at least one more in this summer before we switch gears to fall trends. What’s your favourite summer trend? Let me know in the comments below and maybe it will be featured in my next Summer Trends post!
