Shine Bright with Metallic Makeup

Metallic makeup adds a spectacular touch for editorial beauty, fantasy, sci-fi, or other character looks, not to mention Halloween. Here are some of our best-sellers for bringing on the gleam, sheen, and everything in between.


Mehron Metallic Powder has been in the kits of professional makeup artists for decades (and available at Alcone Company since the ’80s !). It comes in several colors that add realistic metal tones to any makeup creation when used dry or with Mehron Mixing Liquid. An excellent choice for Aliens, Robots, and Tin Man-inspired looks.

Kryolan Aquacolor Metallic makeup is a great choice for children as well as adults because it’s water-activated (and also easily removed with soap and water). For best results, work a small amount of water into the cake until you achieve a creamy texture that delivers statue-worthy looks with the swipe of a brush.
