Metallics, holographic skin and dark shades make up this retro-inspired beauty editorial
It all starts with beautiful, radiant skin that has an almost unearthly glow. Instead of going overboard with garish shimmer and chunky glitter, go for soft and subtle such as BECCA Shimmer Skin Perfector in Moonstone.
A deep dark lip adds noir-like drama to any look. For an added retro touch, stick to a matte finish. Try MAYBELLINE Superstay Matte Ink in Escapist, a vampy plum shade.
Holographic skin may not the be easiest thing to wear, but for the brave, it’s look that will leave everyone talking. KAT VON D BEAUTY Alchemist Holographic Palette offers four prismatic shades.
Nothing says danger more than talon-like nails in a blood-red color such as CHANEL Le Vernis in Rouge Noir.
Update the classic brown eye shadow by skipping the eye liner and mascara. Instead, slick on a cream product, brush up your brows and call it a day.
Combine old school hairstyles (finger waves anyone?) with metallic makeup and you’ve got a cool new look.
VEIL OF LIGHT
For a perfected base, apply thin layers of natural-finish foundation and concealer, adding as you need it. It may take longer but the result is worth it. Try ESTÉE LAUDER Double Wear Custom Coverage Correcting Duo.
For body-baring outfits, skip the body foundation and opt instead for illuminating body sprays or—better yet—shimmering body oil.
Silver is a staple color in futuristic makeup. If your style tends to be more Emma Frost than Judy Jetson, go for subtle touches and choose products that melt on the skin.
