Putting a new twist on the metallic makeup trend, Make Up For Ever presents a collection of warm, molten metals

If you've stayed away from metallics because you find them too bold and difficult to wear, we have good news. Make Up For Ever has made it its mission to make metallics wearable even for the everywoman. Says Dany Sanz, the brand's founder, "Extreme makeup finishes, such as metallic and ultra-shine are essential to makeup artists. They allow you to experiment and play, to bring even more light, and ultimately provide a luminous, extravagant, result on stage." Even if you're not going on stage, you still want to take centrestage come Christmas when it comes to parties. 
Make Up For Ever

The brand has seven makeup sets on offer that let you play with different metallic finishes. Start small with the Lustrous Faves — a molten lip gloss with a pink-metal finish, and an ivory eye powder (above) that gives a natural radiance to the eyes. These will take you beyond the holiday season, and might even become your staples in the new year. Another must-have is the Lustrous Blush Palette, which has 12 artist face colours: four blushers, four sculpting powders and four highlighters. It's quite a collection, so if you fancy yourself an amateur makeup artist, it's perfect for experimenting with colour.

From $44-$248. At Make Up For Ever counters from 9 November
