Amp Up Your Beauty Routine With These Metallic Goods
Metals have always been a standard in design and home decor, but metal-influenced beauty? Yep, the skincare and makeup industry is heavy into metals now, with each material having a special beneficial bonus. From gold and rose gold to silver and platinum, we found our favorite items, paired with our favorite home decor accessories.
Keep the gold theme for your hair with Sea Salt Shimmer Spray by Captain Blankenship ($16), which earns a gold star for adding texture and a subtle shimmer (from natural gold mica)—plus, it’s entirely organic. Atlantic Sea Salt adds texture, while aloe vera and sea kelp nourish and moisturize.
Or keep gold literally at the tips of your fingers, with Deborah Lippmann Gold Digger ($50) nail polish with 24-karat gold leaf flecks. Green tea extract and biotin add an additional much needed boost to strengthen nails, too.
Take the gold theme nearly literally with a bar of gold by Charlotte Tilbury ($44). The best-selling highlighter gives the ultimate glowing-from-within look.
Or see what all the buzz is about with FARSÁLI’s Rose Gold Elixir ($35), which is a multi-purpose daily oil made of 24-karat gold and rosehip seed oil (Sephora can barely keep it in stock). The gold flecks absorb quickly into skin for a radiant finish, and it can be used a) to hydrate skin daily, b) on lips before applying lipstick for moisturized and plump lips, and c) mixed with foundation for a glowing, moisturized finish.
And Sachajuan Silver Shampoo ($31) is perfect for hair that desires less brassy tones. The violet pigmented shampoo also hydrates and preserves moisture, shine, and strength.
The show-stopping Hubbardton Forge Airis Pendant in Platinum ($690) is a must for any minimalist design fan. Match your new favorite pendant with DHC Platinum Silver Nanocolloid Set ($69) that features a toner, essence, and moisturizer with nano-sized platinum and silver. It’s a master at hydrating and brightening, while reducing the look of pores and fine lines.
