Heavy Metal

 In this months edition of VOGUE, we see the new trend of, what they call, 'Heavy Metal' eyes- metallic, bold eyes showing up in all the SS12 shows. 
MAC, although part of last years collection, created a Wonderwoman collection of cosmetics, and they have some fantastic metallics in their eyeshadow palettes (one of which I got for Christmas, and LOVE it!)

 Here are some of the photos, featured in VOGUE...


Linda Cantello created an underwater-inspired beauty look at Giorgio Armani 


The festival-inspired beauty look Charlotte Tilbury for MAC created for the DSquared2 show 



At Gucci, the panda-like ringed eyes were created by Pat McGrath



Peter Philips created for the Fendi show




Francelle Daly for NARS kept make-up simple at 3.1 Phillip Lim




Georgina Graham for MAC created pink glittery eyes at Ashish, using Vaseline to keep the look in place. 



Mink-brown smoky eyes were finished with a glossy sheen at Lanvin, where Pat McGrath headed up the beauty team.



James Kaliardos for NARS complemented the Van Gogh-inspired clothing at Rodarte with this style 



Lisa Butler for MAC created smudged smoky eyes at Emilio Pucci



Hannah Murray for MAC created this look at the Just Cavalli show


 This trend can work well for both the seemingly opposing trends for this SS12 of grunge and pastels. On the highstreet, Topshop has many pieces in for both these trends, alongside River Island, New Look and H&M. Darker shades and tones smudged with thick black liner in a winner for any grunge wannabe, whereas lighter shades, perhaps teamed with gold liner, makes for a delicate pastel spring look. 

 Keep an eye out on those make-up counters, where I bet Barry M and MAC will be loving on these styles!
