Make Up Trends Spring/Summer 2011 – Metal and Glitter

Our look at the key spring/summer make up trends continues…

 The 70s is back with a bang this season; the hair, the hats and of course the make up! Cue glam rock and heavy metal.

When Giles went glittertastic  during London fashion week back in September, showcasing serious seventies decadence , I must admit, I wasn’t sure it would catch on….

But the look doesn’t have to be quite so bold. Why not try smudging some glitter along the lower lash line for a hint of glam rock or in the eyes inner corners to make them “ping”.

Barry M’s Dazzle Dusts are one of my faves, and a snip at £4.59. These luscious shades can be applied bright and bold or shimmering and subtle, with over 60 original colours to choose from everyone can find a favourite pot or two or three…

Prada showed off something a little more wearable, but again, adapt the look to suit you. Silver is a super colour. It suits most eye colours and complexions, bu if you don’t feel comfortable taking a bold shadow up to the brow line, simply dust some silver along the lids for an instant update.

Add some(not too) heavy metal with Bobbi Brown’s award winning Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Graphite Shimmer Ink to give your make up a simple but effective hint of metal.

Whether you go for all out glam rock or a hint of sparkle, make sure you’ve got some glitter in your make up bag this season and release your inner disco diva.
