Intense Metallic Eyes Will Be The Biggest Fall Makeup Trend

If you’re wondering how to update your makeup this autumn, the trend of smokey metallic eyes just might be right up your alley. This rising beauty trend made a splash on the Fall 2017 runways, and is set to illuminate eyes everywhere in the season ahead. As a change from the usual smokey eye look, the intense metal eye features shades of copper, gold and bronze. On the runways, various iterations of this metallic eye trend all made a grand entrance.

Alberta Ferretti

For a striking look, try drawing your beauty cues from the Alberta Ferretti runway. Enhance your eyelids with smudged dark grey eyeshadow, combined with gold eyeshadow at the inner corners of your eyes. Meanwhile, a pop of bright red eyeshadow brightens up the eye look and can add a fiery, passionate effect.

Brandon Maxwell

The rich metallic hues at Brandon Maxwell certainly usher charm and warmth into fall makeup trends. We are loving this beauty look, which features shades of dark gold and charcoal eyeshadow, all blended into a soft smokey eye. For a finishing touch, contoured cheekbones and a neutral or nude lip colour help to seal the deal.


For an intense, brooding eye makeup look, turn to the beauty statement on display at Balmain. Try outlining your lower eyelids with shimmering dark shadow, and then enhancing your upper eyelids with dark coppery shadow and swirls of dark grey or black. Meanwhile, smooth skin and bold brows further enhance your makeup look.
