BEAUTY BAR: Metallic!

Amongst the many trends of the summer, I love spotting the beauty trend of wearing metallic-colored make-up. I have been seeing so many Fashionistas rock this trend this summer and I have noticed the trend spreading on Fashionistas on social media. This summer there have been a multiple of cosmetics brands to release metallic-colored lipsticks and lip glosses. As a lover of glitter and make-up I definitely have a love for these metallic lipsticks and own some myself!

I find the best way to wear a metallic lip color is on a natural, glowing look. You use it dress up a natural look and simple go-to-class outfit or even while out doing summer activities. A metallic sheen on the lips can brighten up a look without the disco or over-the-top glitter look. Especially when you pair a metallic lip with a nice bronzer or highlighter on the cheeks.

I was glad to catch this Fashionista on her way to a summer course wearing a metallic lip color called Zebra from the ColourPop Ultra Metallic Line. It went well with her natural make-up look and laid back headed-to-class outfit. It gave her a pop without having to wear too much make-up on these scorching hot summer days.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR?: To create a similar look a light BB Cream would be great to use in place of foundation if you are going to be out in the heat and walking to class. Also, a nice bronzer and highlight to add some color and natural glow to the face and cheeks would look great with the metallic lip. My favorite bronzer and highlighters are in the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Palette and Glow Kit. Then add the star of the show! ColourPop has some great metallic shades on their Ultra Metallic Lip Line and they are inexpensive and of great quality. I also love the NYX Cosmetics Cosmic Metals Lip creams; they are just as great!
