Gold and Silver Are Pure Perfection for African Skin
Gold and Silver Are Pure Perfection for African Skin
Metallic took over runways last year. The trend has since filtered down into mainstream makeup, and nobody is prepared to let go of their shimmer addiction. Naturally, these shades have found their way onto the rich tones of African skin. The contrast between dark skin and illuminating silver or gold is glamourous and eye- catching. Here are the best products to pull off this insanely on point look. 

Eyeliner: Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner in Glamrock

This eyeliner is like a bolt of lightning on your face. The striking silver delivers an HD-intense shine with a rockstar edge. Its gel formula dries quickly and evenly, and grips its glitter finish to your eyelids. You can use it alone, or with other cosmetics to build multiple fierce looks.  

Lip gloss: NYX Professional Makeup Cosmic Metals Lip Cream in Celestial

Imagine liquid gold dripping from your lips. Well, it’s possible with this space-dust-inspired shimmery lip cream. This gloss is a multidimensional whirlwind of bronzy-golden colours that project off your face when applied solo. And for those Nubian Queens out there, see how fabulously it pairs with a flute of bubbly in your hand.    

Highlighter: Maybelline Facestudio Master Strobing Liquid Illuminating highlighter in Deep Gold

One of the most popular highlighters out there, it’s an instant face brightener with light-reflecting micro pearls. You’ll just be amazed at how it seems to absorb and reflect the light around you for a 24-karat glow. Apply it to your cheekbones, forehead, the bridge of your nose and your chin. 

Eyeshadow: L’Oréal Infallible Paints Metallics Eyeshadow in Aluminum Foil

A metallic, silvery, smooth-as-paint eyeshadow with the reflective powers of polished aluminium. If you’re scared of too much shine, apply it only to the outer corners of your eyes, tear ducts or under your brow bones. For the rest who want to outshine a disco ball, smear it over your entire lid and live loudly. 

Feel free to mix and wear these metallic marvels together or separately. Just makes sure you flaunt these colours proudly like they’re silver and gold jewelry to accessorise your best feature: your beautiful skin colour
