Silverlight

Alright, I may have found a silver shadow that doesn't turn ashy gray on me!!

Silver Fog by MAC is a loose shadow that is borderline shimmer...ALMOST glitterly. But the high pigments allow the color to sit well and not turn into this gross mosh of a gray.
This look is accomplished by concentrating the silver in the center of your eyes - I know it's natural to want to put it in the inner corners, but for a brighter-eyed look that isn't so in-yo-face, this can work. I also applied it on the lower inner corners of my eyes, how weird would it look if I applied it in the center as well?

whoa, pictures of just my eyes are weirding me out! it's like i'm looking into your soul. YOUR SOUL IS MINE.

Surround the silver with a dark brown or black and lightly blend. Make sure not to over-blend!

For a quick and dirty way to get your stupid grown-out bangs out of your face, literally twist your bangs back, gathering more hair as your descend down. Pull back in a messy bun for the "I know my hair sucks today but really, who are you to judge me?" look.


this pictures makes me look like i have a protruding vain in my head. haha.

Making dinner tonight for a friend of mine & me...stay tuned for recipes & food porn!

  10. This look is awesome. Good blending too. A tip is to use a small brush that's more on the dense side and use really short strokes to blend. Glad this worked out!
