Spring is right around the corner, and you’ll soon be able to put the cold weather behind you. Spring sunshine energizes and gives the motivation to reach new goals you’ve set and to try new things.
Things like the inspirational makeup trends from the 2019 spring runways!
This spring look, Gunmetal, is inspired by the gunmetal eyeshadow trend seen backstage at Nicole Miller.

This look is super easy and fast to recreate! The gunmetal smoky eye trend is edgy, bold, yet simple and soft. All you need is a dark gray or silver eyeshadow to add drama to your lids.
Keep the rest of your makeup simple to keep the focus on your eyes.
To stay true to trend, the trick is to make it look like you’re not wearing any other makeup. I love to contour though, so yeah… 🤷♂️
I chose a nude lipstick and feathered my Dip Brow with light, hair-like strokes throughout my brows to darken them, but make them appear as close to natural as possible without adding length.
I swept a light-colored highlighter to add shimmer without overpowering because no look is ever complete without a little glow-up!
