Heavy Metal for the Holidays

This holiday season, add a little something special to your look with a little bit of metal. Metallic cosmetics provide a bit of glitz and sparkle especially appropriate for the holidays. The gentle shimmer will enhance your skin tone with richness and radiance. Some products to try:

For the eyes:
  • Stilla All Over Shimmer Eyes, $14. Available in flattering colors like gold, pink petal, and champagne, these ultra-light eye shadows promise to "put the sparkle back into your eyes."
  • MAC Cosmetics Holiday Pick 4: Warm Eye, $39. This duo of eye pigments provide "the perfect balance of shimmer, shine and rich color." You get both Chocolate Brown, a shimmering chocolate copper bronze and Melon, a soft bright golden peach. Yum.
  • Urban Decay's Liquid Eyeliner, $14. Grab your pick of such colors as Chains, Smog or Soot for a big dose of dazzle.
For the lips:
For the nails:
  • OPI's Holiday 2006 Nail Lacquers , $7.50. In such pretty colors like the coppery Music Hall Curtain Call and the shimmery I Get a Kick Out of Gold, these nail colors will make the holiday festivities all the more beautiful.
  • Essie Winter 06 Nail Polish, $7.00. Not to be outdone, Essie's Wild Thing and Monkey Business will add an exotic and shimmering final touch to your holiday look.
