How to Wear Metal Eyeshadow Four Ways

Metal colored eyeshadows can give your everyday makeup look a boost. These pretty shades of bronze, cooper or gold are very universal and go with nearly every color. Here are four versions that are so different.

Nude: Paired with a nude lip is great for the barely there look. To get this look I used MAC Subculture lip liner with MAC Myth lipstick and MAC Prism blush.

Classic: Another great daytime look and also a great bridal makeup look. Here I used MAC Dervish liner with MAC Chic lipstick and ELF Muted Mauve blush.

Pop: A pop of color brightens your day and can be used in all kinds of eye catching colors such as fuchsia or orange. I used for this look MAC Cherry lip liner and MAC Impassioned lipstick with MAC Dollymix blush.

Vamp: a metal eyeshadow looks amazing with a dark lip. Try using anything from a dark blood red or a dark eggplant. I used MAC Vino lip liner and Mary Kay lipstick in Confidence with MAC Ablaze blush.

For all of the looks I used Urban Decay Smog eyeshadow from the Naked 1 Pallette. So you can see one color can be used in many different ways. Try using lots of varieties and you will be in love with this new version of neutral makeup!
