Metallic and Pearl beauty finishes


Cast a glow with metallics and pearl finishes

Unless you’re Katy Perry, full-on glitter is rather severe for daytime wear. So, for those of us who don’t want to give up a little sparkle in our summertime makeup, we suggest a pearlized or subtle metallic formula. Pearl finishes reflect light to give the face a flattering glow, while we love the foil finish of that latest versions of metallic nails (bonus that it’s easier to remove, unlike glitter which can get everywhere).
