pretty metals

I saw *this* look from Blix and I really liked it and still had to do my own make-up. So I figured I’d do something like it, I especially liked the light silvery/champagne colour in her eyelids but I didn’t think I own anything like it so I used a silver and golden eyeshadow instead.
As usual when I take inspiration from someone, the look turned out quite different but I still like it. 🙂

I also used brown on the waterline this time instead of black which gives the look a little softer touch. I think the silver and gold combined gives such a pretty colour and this look is not difficult but it does draw instant attention to your eyes.

I combined it with the red lipstick from Catrice Revoltaire. I love these lipsticks because they’re matte and they stay on the lips way better than normal creamy lipsticks.

To me this is a pretty wearable every day look because the lips make it really bold but if you wear just a simple lipbalm with this or a more toned down lipstick it doesn’t look as much “in your face” as it does right now.

Tell me, what do you think of this look?

  1. Love this with the red lips!

    • Thanks, I’ve been very into red lips lately. Too bad I still haven’t found the perfect lipstick that stays where it should be and doesn’t dry out my lips. Because of that I don’t wear it a whole lot, at least not as much as I’d like.

  2. great look. the red lips goes well with this look too.

  3. Very nice! Bloody Red is also a very nice colour! I hope that I’ll get to the Revoltaire collection as soon as it hits shop. I don’t really like hunting collections down but I will if I have to:p

  4. This is such a pretty look! And I think the lips really added some extra to it! Awesome!

  5. Pretty again!
    Like the lippie too!

  6. So pretty!

  7. As always: beautiful!
