Written by Joanne Cleary

Whilst our European counterparts are preparing for a season lazing on the Amalfi, seeking Chinotto and strolling the avenue Montaigne, in the southern hemisphere we must remain content with watching the Spring trends trickle through to our shores. Nevertheless, all that glitters is not only gold, but all shades of sumptuous metallics which are perfect for lifting an Australian winter complexion.

The look is ethereal, decadent eyes, shimmering complexions. Whilst the molten revolution has been here before recently (think Charlotte Tilbury at Nicole Farhi, Spring 2011 collection) the look is more glam space beauty than bronzed muse. Chanel pioneered, under Peter Phillips' ever amazing guidance, sending fresh faced models down the catwalk with shimmering eyes in the sharpest of silver and just a hint of smoke.

For the braver, Prada showcased ethereal beauty with a thirties twist, matching Cuban brights with space age eyes. Not feeling spacey? Tone the metallic down to a highlight for a hint of light. Just don't confuse the metallic eye trend with Gareth Pugh's actual metallic eyes... For there you may just reach space status.
