Sexy star Megan Fox rocks the metallic trend at the This Is 40 film premiere in Los Angeles


Power pigments have given make-up artists the tools to create really dramatic effects. So take a gilt trip this spring with a glossy shimmer of gold, silver or copper over the eyes.

It’s already left the catwalk, with actress Megan Fox wearing the look on the red carpet for the premiere of This Is 40 in Los Angeles.

Trick of the trade from L’Oréal make-up artist Val Garland:

If you’re using metallics on the eyes, line lashes with a black kohl pencil and apply one sweep of mascara to frame the eyes and make sure your complexion doesn’t look too washed out.’
