Winter Metallics 101

HerCanberra Team

Think ‘future’ and you think sleek, shiny metals. 

We show you how to incorporate one of the hottest trends for AW17 into your wardrobe and makeup.

Metallics are everywhere this season, and it’s never been easier to incorporate a bit of sparkle or shimmer into your wardrobe. Stylist Hayley O’Neill advises introducing the trend to an outfit through a key piece—a sequinned top or metallic boots—and pairing it with staples you already own. It’ll reinvent your ‘go to’ pieces whilst elevating your entire look.

Silver Ankle Boots $119 from Zara at Canberra Centre.

Don’t be afraid of metallics or feel you need to reserve them for night time—a sequinned pencil skirt teamed with a feminine knit is the perfect daytime combo. For night, go full metal with a sequinned dress or dip your toe in the metallic pond with a sculptural clutch.

BEAUTY

IT’S ALL ABOUT THAT BASE

Use a liquid illuminiser as your primer to give your skin that sun-kissed glow. Makeup artist Jacqui Scott used Benefit sunbeam ($45.00) from Myer, Canberra Centre on Alana.

Make your cheekbones light and
lifted by applying a powder highlight after your foundation—Jacqui loves theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer ($29.95) from David Jones at Canberra Centre. This versatile product can also be used on the Cupid’s bow to make your lips appear fuller, or as an eyeshadow.

DAYTIME SHIMMER

A fun and flirty version of a classic black winged liner, this metallic olive is perfect for a day-into-night time look. Jacqui used the NYX Glam Liner Aqua Luxe Collection in Glam Golden ($9.95) from Priceline. Custom Unicorn Hair Extensions ($75+) from Pony and Pins add a playful touch.

Emma wears londunn + missguided pink hammered satin duster jacket, model’s own. Custom Unicorn Hair Extensions made to order from Pony and Pins.

HEAVY METAL

When the sun goes down, metallics really shine. Add some glitter to your smoky eye with a liquid eye shadow— Jacqui used Stila’s Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow in Rose Gold Retro ($35.00) from Mecca Cosmetica at Canberra Centre.

To really up the glam factor, add metallic pop to your pout—a light- reflective touch will also make your lips look fuller. Alana wears Hourglass Extreme Sheen Gloss in Siren ($40.00) from Mecca Cosmetica at Canberra Centre.
