M∙A∙C Cosmetics’ Senior Artist Shows Us How to Wear Metallic Makeup For Spring

Makeup has the knack for enhancing our personas. Adding a swipe of red lipstick for a romantic date night or shading in your eyebrows before a client can have the same results as donning a superhero costume—it gives us that boost of confidence, that dose of adrenaline that makes us feel like we can accomplish anything. Of course there are the accouterments that are meant for concealment, the appliques that hide unsightly blemishes and large pores. But when it comes to having fun with the world of beauty, nothing beats channeling your inner glamazon.

Though we all have our own beauty routine, it never hurts to try something new. Since we have been riding the embellishment train for quite some time—from the glitzy fashions to the sparkling accessories—it only makes sense to try the trend on our faces. The metallic eyes and lips seen on the runways of Desigual, Holly Fulton and Donna Karan have inspired us to go that extra mile with our regimen. That said, it is always best to tread with caution, which is why we asked M∙A∙C Cosmetics’ senior artist (and super chic mom), Caitlin Callahan, to fill us in on a few tricks of the trade.
