Silver-Grey look

Friday 22 October 2010

This look was inspired by the chick in the Roll Deep video for "Green Light": (Advanced warning, this video is very hot!) click here for the video. The only pics I could find off Google were these:

I tailored the look to my own taste; not so dark/black, I used more grey than black =)

Here's the products I used for this look:

> MO eyeshadow in "white pearl" & "silver grey"
> UD Alice in Wonderland palette- "vorpal" ("S&M")
> UD BOS II - "gunmetal" & "perversion"
> Barry M white eyeliner "30"
> UD eyeliner - "zero"
> Sleek ink pot
> eyelash curlers
> Dior Show mascara
> MAC select moisture cover NC35
> Illamasqua powder blush in "hussy"
> Sleek pout polish in "pink cadillac"

I started by applying Barry M white eyeliner to the inner corner of the eyes (after primer), so that the white bit would stay bright and pop, even after adding the darker colours. I put the MO White Pearl on top of this (the inner corner), followed by MO silver grey on the middle of the eyelid. I then added UD Vorpal (or S&M) on top of the Models Own silver, as it was too bright and Vorpal toned it down. I then added UD Gunmetal to the outer corner of the eye and a little bit of UD Perversion to darken it further. The outer corner was winged using the MO blending brush, and the made into a more punctuated "wing" by using a cotton bud soaked in makeup remover to shape it.
UD Zero was used as top liner, whilst the bottom lash line was shaded using the remainder of what was left on the MO blending brush. After MAC concealer was used under the eye (and mixed a little with face moisturiser cos I'm still ill!), I added mascara to top and bottom lashes.

For the rest of the face I used Illamasqua blush on the apples of the cheeks to give a bit of colour compared to the cold/grey eyes. For the lips I decided to use pink (Sleek Pink Cadillac) as I personally like pink & grey together!
