Beauty Spring Peek: Metallic Eyeliner

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? Be sure to check out my past story on glam glitter makeup.


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.

The way she's wearing it in the pic is a bit too extreme for me but I'd like to play around with some of the glitter stuff. Don't know where I'd wear it though. I work at a somewhat conservative women's clothing store and am an old married lady so I don't go out clubbing anymore. ***sigh***

I got a bronze eyeliner last year and I wear it on the upper lid -- not in the lower lid -- it looks funky there. IMHO. It is a change from the usual black.... Rudeness is the weak man's imitation of strenght

I like it a lot...I get bored with the same old drab eyeliner.

I'd be interested in trying a subtle version of this look, but I wear contacts. How easily does the glitter dislodge from the lid and move into the eye, if at all?

My take is that anyone over the age of eighteen should not be wearing glitter in any form.

If I may be the voice of dissent, but I LOVE the model's eye-liner makeup. Plus, if you check out this month's Seventeen magazine (Feb. '07) there is a softer version of it which I would rather try.

I have the Nars pencil in two colors, and I'm not crazy about it... the glitter pieces aren't even and the whole tip will break off if you don't press correctly. I know I talk about them all the time, but Tony&Tina made the best eyeliner glitter pencils in the world. Nothing compares.

Those eyes look hot, and I can see myself wearing a slightly toned down version for evening. **“In my mind, I’ve always been an A-list Hollywood superstar. Y’all just didn’t know yet.” -Will Smith **
