Metallic eye make-up is a huge beauty trend this season, from cranberry metallics to super glittery lids. Illamasqua have recently launched their new winter collection, Once. It is inspired by the colours, textures and beauty that we are left with once summer has faded away bringing us into Autumn, leaving you to think about the passing of time. The all new Vintage Metallix eye shadow pots have a cream or gel like texture to give eyes an intense shimmer with a hint of metallic.
I love the packaging for a start and to be honest when I first open the pot I wasn’t too sure but once I felt the creamy texture and swatched it I could instantly see a gorgeous autumnal shimmer! It is also a great base for other shadows, because of the creamy texture it holds other shadows in place. This is very easy to blend and so easy to use, so here is a really easy look to recreate inspired by catwalk looks and a subtle hint of vamp ♥
