Silver Linings

24 comments

Am I a gold or silver kind of girl? Silver, one hundred percent, but when it comes to incorporating it into my makeup routine I am always at a loss. I am a gold/bronze/anything neutral kind of girl in that perspective, but I feel like I'm missing out on so many looks when I exclude my silver-toned products from the exclusivity of my makeup bag.

Smokey eyes are something I could write a personal history on. Back when I first started going on nights out I would rely solely on two staple shadows, a silver and a matte black, for my eye looks. Now I steer clear from them and focus on deep browns. I can't believe I have gotten less bold with practice! This Maybelline palette my sister gifted me is full of stunning, pigmented shades packed full of sparkle and perfect for a night out - yet I haven't touched it for more than a swatch every now and then because I'm scared. I feel ridiculous even typing that sentence out.

There is something to chic about the idea of silver eyeliner to me and a myriad of different ways to incorporate it into my routine instantly spring into my head. Once again, I haven't been so daring! One way I am dying to try is to accent a classic cat eye with a small edging of silver - I cannot think of anything so stunning. Another is to line my bottom lash line to add a subtle pop. These are "baby steps" and things I should definitely force myself to try the next time I'm going out.

Most of my issue is the fact that when an opportunity to wear these colours arises I am in such a rush I don't have time to experiment, in case I have to start over, I just want a go-to look that I know suits me and I can complete in a flash.

Is there a colour you adore but are terrified to work with? A product, even? I need to know I'm not the only one scared of makeup.

  1. I usually go for a bit of silver glitter along the top of a black cat eye for a simple party look! That palette looks so pretty!

  2. I've also find that over time, I became less daring with my makeup..which is unfortunate! Smokey eyes are so classic, I should wear them more often! Thanks for the great products recommendations!

  6. It's so strange too, when I knew nothing about blending I was happy to slap on super dark colours!

  13. I think it might be because it's a neutral tone, but even then, it's still as eye catching as silver!
