Metallics are sticking around for the long haul. Not only are we seeing them again for Spring 2007 in clothes, bags and shoes, they were also translated as a sparkly staple in makeup. Get geared up for Spring with my other Spring Peeks.
Check out these metallic eyeliner eyes from the Chanel Spring 2007 show. This runway look is a bit extreme, but here are some product, and application recommendations so you can create your own (toned down) metallic eyeliner look at home. Are you a glitter girl?

To see my eyeliner picks for this look and learn how to do it yourself,
Jemma Kidd Glitter Liner, $24, is a clear sparkling eyeliner gel that can be worn alone or over other makeup. It is available in three colors: diamond crush, quartz crush and topaz crush.
NARS Glitter Pencil $24, was inspired by New York's infamous 1970s disco era and as we all know, history repeats itself! These eyeliner crayons have chunks of glitter in them and can be worn on your eyes, cheeks, lips, and body. They are available in eight gorgeous colors.
- Apply a metallic shadow to the rims of your eyes.
- Next, draw a thin line on your bottom lashes being extra careful that no glitter gets on the inside of your eye. If you are using a liquid liner, let dry for 30 seconds.
- Thicken the line on your upper lashes and extend the liner about 2mm from the outer corners of your eyes.
- Lastly, line the inner rims of your eyes with white or silver eyeliner (sans sparkles) and dab some shimmery light metallic shadow on the corner of your eyes in a V shape where your upper and lower lashes meet.
