Metallic Holiday Makeup To Get You Shining

Metallic makeup has revved it's shine-infused engine into a fever pitch this year, making full metal a full-force trend. Blame it on the spring runways, where models at Prada sported creamy silver eyeshadow from lid to brow, Rodarte went the gilded routed with gold lips and lashes, and designers like Thakoon and Vera Wang added a subtle metal-flecked glow to cheeks. Now pair spring's luster with holiday makeup collections packed with mixed metals and we've got an updated spin on the metallic theme. So if you're ready to get lit over the holidays—by gold, silver, and bronze makeup, of course—then trade up your everyday products for something with a reflective kick.
