It’s time to break out those untouched metallic shades often found in your eyeshadow palettes. In this new normal of constant mask-wearing, chic and dramatic eyes are all the rave — with celebrities like Megan Thee Stallion, Bella Hadid, and Dua Lipa showing off their best metallic looks in their recent Instagram posts.

This dynamic look — that’s a dark touch of something in between iridescent and full-on glittery — will make your eyes pop in the classiest way possible. Perfect to pair with a bold lip, volumised lashes, and a nifty black eyeliner for a more defined look. 





If you’re up for the glamour of it all, here are four products that can help you achieve the perfect metallic eye.

Tom Ford Beauty’s Eye Color Quad Palette

Tom Ford’s most recent ‘The Eyes of Tom Ford’ collection features this limited edition palette in two sets of shades —  Metallic Denim and Rose Prisme. Each palette consists of four complementary shimmery shades to achieve different looks. If you’re looking to replicate Megan Thee Stallion’s smokey eye makeup as seen above, the Eye Color Quad in Metallic Denim is the palette for you. 

The collection will be available at all Tom Ford counters from 1 August and online at Sephora from 5 August onwards.

Dior Makeup’s 5 Couleurs Couture Birds of a Feather Palette

Not into the smokey grey look? Try a palette with warmer shades to give you a little hint of shimmer instead. Dior Makeup’s 5 Couleurs Couture Birds of a Feather palette in the shade of Early Bird contains five autumn-inspired shades: platinum pink, cinnamon, deep purple-brown, coppery red, and platinum grey for all-rounded chicness. Pair this look with a nude lip and you’re good to go!

This collection will be available at all Dior Beauty boutiques and counters from 1 August.

NARS’ Climax Eyeshadow Palette

If you’re looking for a good balance of matte and shimmery shades to recreate your metallic look, this eyeshadow palette from NARS’ Climax Collection is most ideal. It comes in nine different shades that work interchangeably with each other to create an intense or flirty look depending on your mood.

This collection is currently available at NARS.

Charlotte Tilbury’s Eyes To Mesmerise

As its name suggests, Charlotte Tilbury’s award-winning smooth and lasting formulation will give you eyes to mesmerise. Achieve that romantic, dreamy look you’ve always wanted with Pillow Talk — Tilbury’s dusky pink shade that’s something straight out of a fluffy Disney Princess movie. 

The collection is available online at Sephora and at Sephora ION, Ngee Ann City, Westgate, Marina Bay Sands, VivoCity, Tampines, and Plaza Singapura.
