BEAUTY TREND: METALLIC MAKEUP

The latest beauty trend? Heavy metal! Not the rock and roll kind, rather bold metallic makeup in shades of silver, gold, bronze and even pops of bright colors for the most daring. Major makeup artists like Peter Philips for Chanel and Pat McGrath for Versace are embracing this trend on the runway as well as Hollywood’s hottest stars on the red carpet. Whether you choose a subtle shine or all out glitz, metallics pop on every skin tone!

Here are some of our favorite metallic products:

The holidays are arguably the best time of year. Everyone is bundled up in chunky sweaters, Christmas lights go up and a general sense of cheer lingers in the air. Either that or because of all of the fabulous holiday beauty collections we look forward to all year! Here we have rounded up a few that really caught our attention. Pick YOUR favorite to give (or get)!

Yes you read correctly, $48! Shaped like a jewelry box with two pull-out trays, this palette is filled to the brim with 16 eyeshadows, 3 blushes and 3 full size lip glosses. The shadows range in color and come in matte, frost, shimmer and metallic finishes. You simply can’t beat this bargain.

This beautiful palette features 8 shadows and “Ballet Sparkle”, a sheer shimmer for both eyes and cheeks to take you from day to night.


This year MAC released a grand total of seven holiday collections making it very difficult to choose our fav! However, we couldn’t resist the adorable, miniature hatbox packaging of the MAC Guilty Passions Gift Sets for Holiday 2012.
