It's official: metallics are always a good idea. 

Last night (November 30), Rihanna stepped out for the annual Footwear News Achievement Awards, where her highly coveted FENTY x Puma Creeper was honored as "Shoe of the Year."

As expected, the fashion icon didn't disappoint in her all black everything Juicy Couture and Vetements ensemble, but make no mistake; her makeup was equally badass.

Under her Securite cap (from Vetements' Spring 2017 collection), the "Needed Me" singer worked it in a subtle, but glitzy metallic eyeshadow.

If the latest product releases are any indication, this iridescent shade is definitely a go-to trend for holiday. And of course, it isn't reserved for red carpets and A-listers.

No matter your budget, there's a trifecta of options that make going full on prasmatic a realistic makeup goal. 

Unless you live under a rock, Pat McGrath's latest release, the Metalmorphosis Kit, has made an appearance on your Instagram feed. The glittery pigments have been worn by everyone, including Naomi Campbell, making it a must-have holiday gift.

If you're able to snag the silver metallic finish ($60, sephora.com), use your fingers or a brush to swipe across the lid and pair with the kit's dual-ended liner. You can also spotlight the corners of your eyes or cupid's bow for a more work-friendly result. 

For those who want RiRi's silver shadow on a budget, RMS Beauty's Twilight Madness delivers the same light reflecting glow for half the price and effort ($20, dermstore.com). Although it is a powder-based formula, the pale smoke shade is buildable and can be applied with a wet brush for a creamier finish. 

And if you need to stay in single digit territory, your holiday makeup look definitely needs the Catrice Cosmetics Liquid Metal Eyeshadow in "Look Me In The Ice" ($5, ulta.com). Try mixing and matching this with a complimentary color to replicate Rihanna's pink and silver lids. 

Slaying in silver just got easier.
