Makeup Looks for Holidays: 3 ways of using silver



Hello my lovelies! Have you already everything planned out for the Holidays? or you'll go with the flow?
If you know me a little you might have guessed I've also been thinking what to wear, and OF COURSE, what makeup look to sport. As metallics have been going strong lately I thought I'd go all Silver and GOLD! Yay! I know, if you're more of a low makeup profile you might be thinking: "I'll never put gold on my eyelids and gosh forbid the silver and me ending up looking like an 80's bombshell of frostiness! "
But I think the latest metallic trend is so appropriate for parties, night outs, balls, and all kinds of event we usually have at this time of the year. I have not less than six different suggestions for Holidays metallic makeup looks! I've prepared 2 mega-dense posts one for silver and one for gold, with three different looks each! Today is Silver-y looks turn. I hope you enjoy :)




Look n°1: Platinum and khaki

A warm shade of silver "platinum like", with well defined lines eyes and nude lips. I used an affordable variant to Chanel's khaki shade. I've paired it with Essence Glamour girls on the nails.

Look n°2: Iridiscent silver
A cool shade of silver, without harsh lines, to compliment bright red lips. I've paired it with Essie Madmoiselle on the nails. If you got Dior Golden Snow palette, this is a suggestion for using the middle shade. I'm using a more affordable colour here.

Look n°3 : Gunmetal boldness

For this look I threw all in! Bold eyes and strong wine lip, if you have false eylashes, which I didn't, they would be perfect for this look. This is what the lovely Karen from Makeup and Beauty blog would call "drag queen level makeup" haha! I don't care, it's bold and I love it! I've paired it with Essie's For the twill of it on the nails

For this look I used:
Eyes:
NYX Above and beyond full coverage concealer in 04Beige
- Essence Stay all day 04 Stars and Stories
- Catrice Spectaculart pure chrome eyeshadow C02 Bombay Bauble
- Catrice Spectaculart pure chrome eyeshadow C03 Trasure it

  4. Salut Nati, great post and I love the slide shows, very helpful and showing off the colors and your wonderful skills excellently. I like all of them - however I think with me it will be as every year: no plans what to paint and in the end running out of time - LOL, I therefore splurged on the antique gold mascara from Chanel to at least be able to add some juice last minute ;-) Bisous xxx
