Four Ways To Ace The Autumn Metallic Trend | Autumn Edit

As I briefly mentioned in my Autumn Edit, metallic eyes are back this Autumn. Luckily there are a number of ways to work this trend. I'm here with five great products to help you work the trend. I have everything from soft metallic hues, to strong glitter pigments. 

Nude Eyeshadow Palettes
There are plenty of eyeshadow palettes on the market which offer metallic and bronze hues. Lets face it, if you're a beauty fan, you probably already have one in your collection, which is great as you can work the trend without spending a penny. One of my favourites is the Stila Countless Colour Pigment palette, but I also love my Bobbi Brown palettes, as they often have brown and copper shades. If you want to purchase something new, Maxfactor have just released the Smokey Eye Drama Kits, which look perfect!

Loose Eyeshadows From The High Street 
One of the great ways to work this trend is using loose eyeshadows. They tend to come in a ton of metallic shades and you can really build them up to give you strong pigmentation. The best bit is that there a ton of loose eyeshadows on the high street, which makes it a great budget option to try the trend. Pictured above is Models Own Espresso, which is a stunning chocolate brown shade with gold glitter, although it seems to be discontinued! Another great option is the Barry M Dazzle Dust, which comes in loads of colours! 

Metallic Cream Eyeshadows
One of my favourite products at the moment is the Bourjois Color Edition Eyeshadow in the shade Or Desir. It's a stunning bronze colour which fits the metallic trend so perfectly. The shade is so pigmented and it's really easy to apply and wear. If you're looking for something more glittery you could try the Maybelline Color Tattoo eyeshadows, they have metallic shades in almost every hue, including a stunning blue. 

Eyeshadow Pigments 
If you want to go all out on this trend, pigments are the way to go! In the picture above I've included the Illamasqua Pigment in Furore, which will be on my dressing table from now until Christmas. The pigmentation is stunning, it really is something special. It gives you a metallic finish and it literally lasts all day! Another great brand for pigments is MAC - they have well over 50 shades and one pot could last you a lifetime! 

Have you experimented yet with this trend yet? I'd love to know if you have any tips!
