A Metallic Eye That Won't Make You Look Like A Robot

Metallic eyes are popping up everywhere, and while we're loving the look, it can be hard to translate into something that's wearable for every day. Our editorial assistant Vanessa is dying to try it out, but didn't know where to start. So, we called in makeup educator James Vincent to show her exactly how to wear a gorgeous metallic eye.
Rather than go for the linear or the smoky looks we've seen ad nauseam, James combined warm and cool metallic tones for an unstructured look that's soft and totally daytime appropriate — we're obsessed with it. Check out the video and let us know what you think.
