Wet-Look Lids? Yes, Really

We've already mastered wet-look hair. So, naturally, the next logical step in our quest to channel Beyoncé at the Grammys (no, we'll never be over it) is to conquer that slick, metallic makeup that stopped us in our tracks.
Unfortunately, unlike Queen B, we don't have a glam squad at our beck and call. But, lucky for us, we do have one seriously talented makeup artist who's willing to break down our favorite beauty looks step by step: James Vincent. With the help of a few choice products, he gave Shawna, our director of business intelligence, wet-look eyeshadow like we'd never seen before. Peep her metallic makeover, above.
Embryolisse Dark Spot Serum, $75, available at Embryolisse; NARS Eye Paint in Ubangi, $25, available at Nordstrom; Ardency Inn Modster Long Play Lip Vinyl in Dubstep Remix, $23, available at Sephora; Lucas' Papaw Ointment, $12, available at Net-A-Porter; Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray, $14, available at Sephora.
