It’s never a better time to bring out the metallic makeup than during the holidays.  This week’s Makeup Wars Challenge is our favorite holiday metallic makeup.  Read on for more…

For eyeshadow, the Laura Mercier Mini Baked Eye Trio in “Smoky Metallics” gives you a beautiful holiday eye look. It’s versatile, too, as you can use the shadows wet or dry. The eye shadow is nicely pigmented; it is a metallic, so there is some falloff as you load the brush, but I really like this one.  And you can’t beat the price…$25


There are plenty of  fabulous holiday metallics nail options. I’ve been wearing the Ciate Sequin Manicure in Super Duper on my ring finger combined with a manicure using L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Nail “The Bigger The Better” from the Holiday Diamonds Collection.

The Ciate Super Duper Manicure is a combination of black, silver holographic and gold sequins. It’s easy to apply and actually quite durable. I think it’s a fabulous accent and it definitely is a must-have for the holidays. The L’Oreal Paris shade, The Bigger The Better is a sophisticated black base with silver glitter. It’s gorgeous! I have an upcoming review of the L’Oreal Paris Limited-Edition Diamonds Collection, so stay tuned for that.

And while I don’t own this one (yet), I had to include Dior ‘Grand Bal’ Golden Tattoos as a favorite metallic, because I love the look! The limited-edition Golden Tattoos will gild skin with 24-karat gold micro particles. There are seven exclusive designs in the set: two wrist chains, a Dior Dollisimio charm, a pearl drop charm with the Christian Dior logo, three rings and a Line A interlaced bangles. The seven designs can be worn alone or mixed and matched to create different effects. Delicate and beautiful, leave it to Dior to be a real conversation-starter!
