Makeup Master Class: Silver Lids

28 Nov 2011

Take inspiration from designer Derek Lam's runway show and give yourself a futuristic flutter

Step 1. Prep your lids by applying concealer. Sweep a pearly silver eyeshadow over the entire lid with a brush, then blend with a darker shadow on your outer socket, making an almond shape.

Step 2. Frame your eyes with a light liner. A great trick is to thicken your lash line by making little dots in between your eyelashes and then blend the line so the dots disappear. Curl lashes and then apply a double coat of mascara.

Step 3. Take a cotton swab dipped in make-up remover and roll it under your eyes to grab excess dust. Next, apply a skin highlighter – opt for a silver-based powder - they work wonders. Sweep it across your forehead, cheekbones and jawline. Accent cheeks with blush.

Step 4. Balance out all that sparkle on your eyes with a bare lip. A slick of lip gloss is good, or a matte lipstick if you’re feeling too bare. Pull your hair up in a very-in-right-now ponytail or sweep it back off your face and secure with pins. Now, sit back and let your eyes do the talking!
