Over the summer, I got a makeover/makeup lesson with the fabulous Diana Changanaqui of Bobbi Brown Cosmetics. She talked to me about some of the top beauty trends for fall: metallics, nude lips with sheer color, smoky eyes and chrome–even on lips!
Chrome for eyes, I get. Diana used Bobbi Brown’s Metallic Long-Wear Cream Shadow in Chrome Patina on my eyelids and it looked stunning. Thankfully, she skipped the silver lips and went with a more natural pink. But over Halloween, I was a silver superhero one night so I figured what better time to try the trend.
A publicist sent me Rimmel’s Stir It Up cream shadow in No Way!, which I spread over my lids for the perfect superhero sparkle. I then put on clear gloss and pat loose chrome eyeshadow on my lips. I looked in the mirror and death stared back (Keep reading to see what I mean).
But that’s the beauty of trying makeup trends. If you hate them all you need is a wet wash cloth. I wiped the chrome off my lips, applied chrome to my nails (which guys hated by the way) and went off to my party.
Chrome eyes? Love.
Chrome lips? My scared face in this pic says it all.
