Trend To Try: Metal Kiss

THE Right swimwear can make a huge difference with how confident you feel on the beach or at the poolside. So too can make-up. We’re not suggesting that you hit the waves with a full face complete with high coverage foundation, faux eyelashes and a smoky eye, but this season’s make-up trends are best worn out in the sun, rocking your newest bikini. We dare you to keep foundation to a minimal and embrace metal lips.

MATTE. Glossy. Those finishes are so last year. Take your summer lip game to the year 3018 with an iridescent and metallic shimmer. If you’re not sure that this trend will stand the test of time and don’t want to invest in a lippie specifically for this, turn to your eyeshadow palette. Apply your fave nude lipstick and layer a metallic eyeshadow shade on top. Voila! Instantly trending lips. What goes great with a heavy metal lip? An all-over rose gold base – a healthy, lit-from-within glow is always on trend.

I am Beauty Editor at People Magazine and a make-up artist. I have worked with many celebrities, including, Phumeza Mdaba, Boity, Zuraida Jardine and Rolene Strauss. I always knew I would work in magazines, as I grew up in publishing (my parents are publishers). When I’m not writing beauty or following my passion for make-up, I can be found reading and spending time with family and friends. I am also a tea-lover
