7 M’sian MUAs Show You How To Wear Metallic Makeup

No time to shun yourself from sparkling, girl — because the latest beauty trend that you can pull off in 2019 is metallic makeup.

That’s right, other than nude and coral, 2019 is the year of the metallic and foils. YASS, this is the time that we all have (by we, I mean our editor) been waiting for!

ICYMI, foil lip became such a huge hit at Jeremy Scott’s New York fashion show last year that everyone is starting to swap glittery sparkles to mirror-shine finishes.

While most of us might be too timid to try out this look, there are tons of ways for you to wear metallic shades and that includes subtle, sort of nude look too. But if you’re feeling playful, don’t be afraid to be adventurous because metallic colours are so much more than just silver, gold and bronze. Here are 7 stunning ways for you to embrace the year of metallic — shown by these super talented MUAs from Malaysia!

Talented makeup artist, Razzi Musa, who has done beauty looks for Kiran Jassal and Elaine Daly to name a few, demonstrated a gorgeous way to wear metallic as eyeliner if you’re not keen on going too bold. Just line the metallic colour on top of vibrant coloured eyeliner to highlight your cat-eye. Classic, but with twist!

2. Bold Creases 

Show off your cheeky side with this absolutely gorgeous, vibrant blue metallic look. Famous Malaysian MUA, Ahma Dani, who has worked with Vivy Yusof, Misha Omar and Dayang Nurfaizah, is totally giving us major inspiration with this look. Apply the shade to your crease then outline them with a black eyeliner, or simply use colourful ones like yellow or even purple!

3. One Colour Shadow 

Late for work or perhaps you’re still learning how to apply the three layer eyeshadow? Metallic colours are great to use as a single eyeshadow colour because it can really pop on its own. Checkout MUA Syed Dewa’s look with the yellow-gold shade on local celebrity, Neelofa.

4. Natural Bronze 

A shade that compliments most skin tones, this bronzy, brown colour is wearable for any occasions — even for a trip to the mall with your girlfriends. We’re so loving this makeup done by local MUA Erin Leolawho’s no stranger to the makeup industry.

5. Nude Metallic Lips

Okay, honestly this really caught our attention, just look at those flawless lips. We’re so stunned at how MUA Fazz Ariffin made the lips nude yet dewy with light, pink metallic shade. Gorgeous!

6. Matching Eyes & Lips 

Uh, who says you can’t wear both metallic shades on your eyes and lips? Local MUA Syed Faizal Syed Noh is proving us wrong! He pairs a bold, smoky metallic eye look with bright metallic purple and we dare say, this is a look for a fun night out with the girls. YASSS.

7. Metallic Snogged Lips 

Let celebrity MUA Sheng Saw teach you how to be sexy with metallic snogged lips! Though we wouldn’t suggest you to actually wear the look out, this will totally give your S.O the ‘hots’ for the night. Besides, you can probably try this out for a photoshoot.
