What goes hand in hand with sunsets, a hot date or a night out with the girls during the spring and summer months is sultry metallic eye makeup – an absolute must for every woman.
As the heat index rises I urge you to stop holding so tightly to your inner sex kitten, and release it by wearing makeup that highlights the best of you – sun-kissed skin, glossy lips and shimmering eyelids. Meow.
With a focus on eyes, here are a few metallic sultry eye makeup product picks that will help you release your inner sex kitten:
Accentuate your eyes with a shimmery Mehron Precious Gem Powder in Topaz ($9.95, mehron.com) – a loose powder that when applied dry can be used for highlighting the inner corners of your eyes and across your eyelids for a golden shimmer. For more color, lightly dip eyeshadow brush into water and then into eyeshadow and apply. I suggest you prep your eyes with Lorac Behind the Scene Eye Primer for maximum staying power. Gem powders can be applied from head to toe.
But if you’re not comfortable working with loose powders, Hard Candy Cosmetics makes a vibrant glitter eyeshadow – Eye Def Metallic Eyeshadow ($6, walmart.com) that is easily applied to the lid with a spongey applicator, lasts the entire day and comes in seven colors.
And lastly, from Laura Geller Cosmetics is Laura Geller Eye Elements Baked Eyeshadow & Highlighter Quad, Sahara Skies which includes a peachy gold highlighter and three amazing eyeshadows you can create magic with: sparkling sea green, bronze and golden.
