How to Wear Metallic Eye Shadow

The Subtle Way to Wear Metallic Eye Shadow

Last night, Rihanna was crowned queen (yes, royalty!) of the West Hollywood Halloween Carnaval, and she sported semiprecious eye shadow for the auspicious occasion. Take a cue from the pop star for a Fall metallic makeup look that's dazzling, not disastrous. To start, apply a deep matte shadow in chocolate tones on the outer half of the lid. Then sweep a bronze or gold-flecked shade from the inner corners to the center of the lid. Try BareMinerals Ready 2.0 Palette in Epiphany ($20), which has both colors in one. Finally, use a larger brush to blend the two colors together. To complement this high-shine eye look, pick a subtle peach blush. But you can add drama with a matte bold lipstick like Rihanna's signature cherry red. Now if only keeping up with the star's constant hair changes was as easy as re-creating her makeup look.
