Not sure you want to try something so daring? Here are three tips for pulling off the look flawlessly.

  1. Even though the fashion models may wear the heavy metal colors from lash-line to eyebrow, it might be a bit much for your day to day wear. Try placing the bling just on the eyelid and gently blending it out.
  2. Give the eyes a intense look by using the metallic shade as a liner under the eyes only. While using a darker shade on the lids. It's a fun looks for a night on the town.
  3. Ease into precious metal colors by using just a smidgen of a lighter metallic color on the inner corner of the eyes. A tried-and-true method to make your eyes more dazzling in any light. If you are feeling brave, fade out with a darker metallic color.
