“Metals—gold, silver—in makeup and fashion. I think it’s fun and flashy, which, why not? When pictures are taken, the flash makes it look like liquid. For metal finishes in makeup, it’s all about the eyes; I like Pat McGrath Labs products.”

“Jewel tones crossed with metal finishes—like with actress Diane Kruger, I created a shimmery electric-blue eye to complement her purple sequin dress for the Golden Globes. Stick to blues, purples and deep greens; they work well with almost any skin tone or hair color.”
