Gold is here to shine in your winter nights. As we all know, L’Óreal, if not other things, takes the fashion industry and the trends it embraces very seriously. With all the metallic fever, it was almost mandatory that they launched a special edition make-up line to go with this luxurious obsession. And the result was baptized very accurately precisely this way.

40. Rouge Gold: A purer red, warmer toned, similar to Ruby Gold but even more classic. This one suits better paler complexions but can also be used to add special effects to any look! For example, you can combine the two shades of red to achieve a beautiful ombré lip featuring pure gold.

46. Beige Gold: Another nude shade to wear when you don’t want your lips to be directly on the spot but still you want to feel and look divine. This one looks slightly warmer and is more noticeable, so try wearing it alone to lets its simplicity conquer the flashes of the cameras!

44. Rose Gold: For rosy girls, if you can’t live without your pink lips, this is the one you are looking for! The pink shade is not too bright and its neutral color fits all complexions and skin tones. A look to go; don’t forget how unavoidable rose gold has been in the past seasons for fashion, jewelry, accessories and even hair! So don’t leave your lips unattended and if you want to try this line, start for this shade. Definitely a must!
One awesome characteristic of all shades is that the color is buildable. Apply just one layer for a subtle effect and build to the infinity for bold rocker lips!

A tip on how to wear them? Try pairing them either with a metallic look or with colors like black, white, or matte versions of the shade, just as we stated in our Metallic Obsession post! Regarding the rest of your make-up, try keeping it simple in the variety of colors if they are bright. Nudes, smokeys or polished eyeliners are what suit this lipsticks the best, but if you are daring enough, pop some color in!

A personal trick? Don’t use them just in your lips, they add awesome effects to your look as blush, highlighter, and my favorite, cream eyeshadow! Specially the Pure Gold one can do wonders if applied as a base for your eye look, or wear it alone well blended outwards for a runway appearance!

I’ll leave you some inspiration of the kind of looks you can achieve with these products, create your own version, reinvent your make-up and be the star of the holidays!

Metallic Obsession: Last Trend

Today I bring you other post about this autumn’s fashion trends: metallic.

metals

While I was writing The Glitter Mania post I was already aware of the new metallic boom in fashion industry, but today as I wondered through the mall I realized that this trend is shooting for the stars and actually reaching them! The outer space feel is now so in right now that it is actually hard to enter a store and not find few of these amazing pieces. Jackets were already mentioned in the last post, but this fever goes far beyond: pants, blouses, dresses, skirts, coats and accessories are just a few to mention.

This season is all about shining and sparkling!

What is so great about this trend? The glamorous vibe.

All precious metal mean the same, luxury, richness, deep colors, textures and effects. Jewelry in the form of clothing. You can find a great variety of hues for this trend but the king and queen are silver and gold, while rose gold and gunmetal are a definite second place. You can find these colors in almost infinite finishes, as we said before, from sparkly, to glittery, frosted, foiled, gems, worn out or rusty.

How to wear this trend?

Fashion is always as you want it, but if you want some ideas, there are two options that seem to be the more spotted in runways and street fashion: either a total look, everything with the same fabric or finish, or a combination of one piece of clothing in a high impact metallic effect and softer matte colors close to the metallic shade selected. For example, if you are willing to rock a silver skirt, try different hues of grey for your top and shoes, or combine a golden blouse with rosy nude tones. The key to create the perfect look is to always let the metals shine, so pick simple textures and subtly saturated colors to achieve the most elegant first impression!

All in all, this trend is a must try for all fashionistas out there, specially the ones in need to feel like a diva.

And now if you want to achieve this look in a more casual way, check out these gorgeous pieces that I picked from Zara‘s editorial, which not in vane, is called Bling Bling. Now you know how serious fashion is about this trend!
