Silver Sky: Silver & Blue eye makeup inspiration

Hi guys,

When it comes to silver eye shadows, I usually use them as highlighters but today, I wanted to do more with my silver eye shadows, so you can imagine how pleased I was when I got the inspiration for this look.

Silver is a tricky colour – it can be tacky, it can be cheap and it can be messy if done wrong. since it is one of such colours that reflect against light, it can come a bit too strong. But for this look, I wanted the silver eye makeup to be soft, fresh and youthful as well.

For this makeup, I used the following tools:

17 Photo flawless primer

Mary Kay concealer

Maybelline dream matte foundation

Flori Roberts pressed powder

Zaron blush

Mary Kay Cream and sugar lip gloss

To get this look, you must go easy on the silver eye shadow. I applied the silver eye shadow on the lower eye lid just once. I chose a lightly shimmer sky blue eye shadow which I applied on the crease and a little above the crease to help define my eyes. This shade of blue brought out the softness in the silver and to achieve the fresh, youthful look, I applied a little silver shadow on the inner corner of the eye, while I softly lined my lower eye lid with the blue shadow. Because I wanted to keep this look simple and fresh, I only thinly applied my Maybelline Eye Drama gel eye liner on my eye lids.

Because simple was what I was going for, I did not use my contour kit this time around but applied my Zaron blush in likewise manner as I would my contour kit. I simply sink in my cheeks and apply blush along my cheek bones. The Mary Kay Cream and Sugar lip gloss was a perfect choice to finish off my look.

I found an even perfect shadow shade that is a mix of silver and blue in my eye shadow palette to use as highlighter for my brow bone.

This look is youthful, clean and fresh. I enjoyed wearing this makeup today.
