FOTD: Warm & wearable silver
Posted by LifeOfBun
Even though silver is a pretty mainstream and accepted color, I feel a lot of people (like me) don’t like to grab for it as much.
And the reason why I think, is that it’s not that easy to pull off..
I tried the fully fledged silver smokey eye a couple of times, and I occasionally do wear it even, but it doesn’t flatter my yellow complexion one bit.
Looks so harsh on me!
What I personally like to do to make it flattering to the face:
- Surround the silver with a warm shade like brown, bronze, burgundy, things like that.
- Warm blusher helps a ton too! Instead of pinks.
- Warm lippie, or if you really want pink maybe go for a coral.
- White silver flatters a million times more than grey silver!
I wore simple make up today, using only two shades: a light silver, and a very warm chocolate brown.
Even though there’s not much to it, I wanted to share an example of how I like to make silvers wearable. :)
Much better right!
Matte bone shade on the browbone, Wet n Wild’s Brulee.
Light silver shadow on my lids (not cruelty free, had it for ages).
Very warm bronze from the Metal Mania palette around my lid, on the outer corner, and lower lashline:
Smudged a dark brown eyepencil along my top lashline as well, Catrice’s 070 I Wood If I Could, and then applied Physician’s Formula Organic mascara.
Catrice Infinite Matte foundation in 010 Light Beige
DA concealer pen
2B concealer stick
A very deep coral red blusher.
I used Peachykeen by MAC but that’s not cruelty free, a good dupe would be the bronzing block in shade 3 by Accessorize.
Essence Compact Power in 02 Adorable on my cheekbones
DA Lip Paint in shade 008, a warm coral
Do you feel the same way about silver being awkward?
