Get Metallic Eyes

metallic eyes

Become a Hollywood glamazon by adding some shimmer to your eyes. And this means¬† MORE than just some shimmery white eyeshadow highlighting your browbone . That’s amateur hour. What I’m talking about is something with WOW effect.

I know that with holiday parties coming just around the corner you’ll want to do something different with your eyes. Rather than labor in front of the mirror for hours and come up with nothing different – or having tried to go SO different that it looks so bad you have to wash your face and start over – I’ve come with some tips to get metallic eyes.

Just do a swipe of a liquid eyeliner on your top lids for some pizzaz. Or use new Mascaras from Cover Girl that have the slightest hint of metallic in them to make your eyes POP. Want more drama? Try doing your entire top lid in gold shadow! A cheaper brand that has HIGH pigment in their eye products is the L’Oreal HIP line. I’ve used many of their products and I really like them. Whether you’re using metallic eyeshadow, metallic eyeliner or metallic eye makeup of any kind…you’re going to look stunning.

She’s Smart Answers: Ah, a common question that’s not always easy to figure out! Let’s tackle it. It’s great to actually get some wear out of your LBD (little black dress) since too often we disregard them and they stay hanging in our closet. We rationalize that we’ll wear them all the time, so we accumulate many black dresses (I admittedly have).

Wanted Frills Flat - Round-toe ballet flat

Okay, so ruffles are a major trend for Fall 09. I hadn’t realized it extended even to shoes, but apparently it does.¬† If I’ve learned anything from my sister, it’s that a serious shoe habit is hard to kick.
