Metallic Smokey Eye Makeup How To

In partnership with Priceline's Festival of Beauty, we're taking the hottest runway trends and translating them, real-girl style! Smoke Show is the eye look of the new season, as seen at Alice McCall's fashion week show. Now it's time to get the look.

It's a truth universally acknowledged that smokey eyes sex up any look and it's one beauty trend that looks absolutely great on everyone. This season the traditional smokey eye has been given a hard metal edge with burnished bronzes and golds. The key to a great smokey eye makeup is making it look bold, but blended, so you get that sultry finish on point. "This look is gorgeous on all skin tones," explains Priceline Pharmacy's makeup director Rae Morris. "My tip would be: if your skin is lighter go for light-golds and rosy-based golds, and as skin gets darker go for bronze-based golds." 

A metallic finish shimmers and adds a gorgeous glow, especially in Summer sun. Read on to see the metallic smokey eye essentials you'll need and to watch our real girl Carina show you how easy our step-by-step really is.
