The two colour combinations most people think of when it comes to Christmas are golden-red and blue-silver. I’m also one of those people that often uses these two colour combinations, but the other day I was thinking why not to combine silver with red. It’s also very pretty combination. I wanted to do an unwearable look and the only thing I had in mind was to use red eyeshadow in crease and silver foil on my lids.
I started with applying red eyeshadow in crease and blending it on my brow bone. All over the lid I used silver eyeshadow, over which I later applied silver foil, which I glued on my lids with eyelash glue. I applied silver eyeshadow in my inner corner as well. Under my lids I combined brown, golden and orange eyeshadow. Then I took Sleek’s golden glittery eyeliner and applied it in crease, following the red eyeshadow, and connected it with lower lash line. For the end I applied black kajal pencil on waterline, eyeliner and false lashes to complete the look. On my eyebrows I applied silver glittery eyeliner, for which I'm not completely sure if it was a good or bad idea.
On my lips I first used red lipstick (Oriflame Rouge Attraction) on its own, but later I added silver foil. I tried to do similar design as on my nails, for which I used Oriflame red nail polish Passionare Red. The silver foil I was using is from Tedi.
I contoured the hollows of my cheeks and my temples with red matte eyeshadow, while I applied silver eyeshadow on the top of my cheeks. Then I randomly applied red studs and silver foil on my temples and cheeks on both sides of my face.
