Use metallics to modernise natural makeup regime

Use metallics to modernise natural makeup regime
Metallics are a great way of updating the smoky eye and women should look to Charlize Theron for inspiration when recreating this trend with natural makeup.

There have been various tips for modernising the smoky eye recently, with Hilary Mantel writing in the Guardian that navys and purples are good colours to use for a sultry look.

Grazia magazine said the combination of bronze eye and nude lip that Ms Theron opted for at the American Cinemathique Annual Gala is one that ladies can easily adopt.

First of all they need to make sure their face is well prepped to ensure it is free of shine so that the glossy eye will really pop. They may want to use natural skin care products for this.

'Keep the rest of your make up low key – you don't want to look over-stated,' the magazine advised.

Women should be careful to pick the right shade of natural makeup for the eyes as it must complement the skin tone, according to Grazia.

The magazine recommended gold and bronze shades for warm complexions and gun-metals and slates for cool skin tones.
