I’ve been holding back on you. I had some craziness at work about 2 weeks ago, followed very quickly by the holiday, which means I have all sorts of stuff sitting around my house, that I’ve been loving and enjoying, and haven’t gushed about on my blog yet!
Aren’t these shadows gorgeous? They make me want to go all RZ and use words like “amazeballs” and “bananas”. (Does she use those words anymore? I stopped watching her show ages ago…)
Anyways, this week for Makeup Wars we are featuring our favorite metallics for the holiday season, and the metallics seem to be an even bigger trend than usual this year! Instead of the typical gold and silver, there are so many variations with bronze, copper and platinum thrown into the mix. The metallics seem more wearable than ever!
These 2 shadows are from Laura Mercier’s Art Deco Muse collection for the holidays. I have some other pieces from the collection that I need to share as well, but I’m particularly in love with these 2 shadows and had to feature them here!
The shadows pictured here are Gilded Platinum (left) and Gilded Moonlight. Also available are Gilded Rosegold, and Gilded Bronze.
Somehow these are glitzy without being glittery and overbearing. I’ve been reaching for them almost daily! I’ve been using Gilded Platinum under my lower lash line, on the inner 1/3 or so and the tear duct area as a little highlight. It catches the light and has a good amount of shimmer but doesn’t scream “DISCO!”, which I love. Gilded Moonlight has been so pretty when combined with neutral shades to add a little depth. Sometime, if we ever see a little sun again around here, I’ll share pics with everyone.
In the meantime, put these on your Christmas list!
