Beauty trends come and go. Some of them are so good that they come back again and again. One of them is metallic make-up, which is seeing a revival and has been rebranded as #chromecore.
Many people are scared to try this trend because they don’t know how to wear it. There are a lot of ways to do so, from having a subtle shimmer to bright, bold looks and everything in between. The easiest way to embrace it is to concentrate your products on your eyes or your nails.
On your eyes
Most of us want our make-up to emphasise and draw attention to our eyes. They are the windows to the soul, after all! Metallic shades can be bold, such as bright colours, or subtle, like nude, Champagne and bronze shades that give your skin a soft shimmer. Whatever your mood or aesthetic, there’s a metallic eye product to level-up your look.
If you want to wear the #chromecore trend in a standout way, create graphic shapes or lines with a metallic liquid eyeliner. Alternatively, invest in eyeshadow that has a shiny finish and a buildable formula so you can control the intensity of your look.

On your nails
Probably the easiest way to wear the #chromecore trend is on your nails. Because when it comes to manicures, no colour, finish, tip, shape or bedazzling is off-limits and we can get away with being more daring! It’s also easy because there are a lot of metallic nail lacquers available in plenty of different shades.
Whether you give yourself DIY manis or you are a regular at your salon, you can experiment with different ways to wear metallic nails. You can rock a full set, do one or two accent nails or even go for shiny French tips for a more subtle take. Whatever you choose, they are sure to stand out (for all the *right* reasons!).
