How to Do Metallic Eyes

How to Do Metallic Eyes

It’s a trend embraced by pop stars and CEOs alike, but for the uninitiated, a metallic eye can seem dramatic or complicated. The good news is, with Making Waves Liquid Metallic Eye Shadow, the look can be subtle or strong, depending on your personal preference. What’s more, getting a metallic eye is super easy.

Here are three ways to try the trend:

  1. Soft Metal

We call Making Waves “shimmer water” because of its liquid consistency and super-spreadable formula. It might look bold in the tube, but it’s buildable color, and one layer of Making Waves is actually sparkly but sheer, giving your lids a soft blanket of glimmer. Gently spread it from the middle of your lid outwards, keep your lids closed for three seconds to let it dry, and you’ll get a subtle shimmer that lasts all day. (Or night. We don’t judge.)

  1. Lined Metal

What’s fun about Making Waves is you can use it as a shadow or to define your lash line. Take the applicator and drag it across the tube opening to remove excess drops, then gently trace your upper lash line from the inner to the outer corner. You can even extend the “wing” for a soft metallic cat-eye. Or go for a runway effect by using Making Waves on your lower lash line instead, which also helps bring out your eye color’s natural undertones

  1. Heavy Metal

A bold metallic eye may look like lots of work, but we’ve made it super easy. Just like with the Soft Metal Eye, gently spread your wand from the middle of your lid outwards and give it a few seconds to try. Repeat that step with another layer, and another, and soon you’ll see your lid transformed into a supernatural arc of metallic magic. Line your lower lashes for an even more defined effect, then add mascara to both top and bottom lashes and prepare to be recruited by mermaids worldwide.
