FOTD: My Phobia for Silver

Wednesday, November 03, 2010

Thanks to a traumatizing childhood experience, I haven't worn silver eye shadow in almost 10 years...


The year was 2001, my high school's Awards night; our very own Oscars if you will. It was our chance to ditch our uniforms and get all dolled up. At this point I had just started wearing make up and had the basics down; Black eye liner, mascara, brown "hot chocolate"lipstick as lip liner and lip gloss. Simple and effective. We were all dressed and ready to go, enter my dear friend "O"

"Look what I have" she announced beaming with pride
And that was it, I left my comfort zone and ventured into the wild. On went the healthy coats of silver eye shadow. The result... well have you seen the movie "It"? Enough said.
The pictures from our night of glam started popping up soon after and I cringed every time I saw myself in one, Hideous I tell you, hideous!
So anyway here I am  years later, facing my fears and looking pretty damn good too (If I may say so myself LOL)




Here's the break down...



Base:
I’m wearing HD foundation from Make Up Forever in 180, set with translucent loose powder in Dark and sheer cover blush in Rust from Sleek Make up.
Eyes:
Grey color blend contact lenses from Bescon.
I filled my brows in with No 3 brow pencil from MUFE, on my brow bone I'm wearing Black Opal foundation in Truly Topaz set with light brown eye shadow from the Sleek Safari palette. 
On my eyelids I started with NYX eye shadow base in w/pearl. Over that, in the inner half of my eye lid is Sleek eye dust in Innocent and In the Nude then gray and black eye shadow from the graphite palette in the outer half and crease.
I used black liquid liner from Yves Rocher  to line my upper eyelid and No 54 (dark blue) pencil from MUFE on my water line set with Dark blue eye shadow from the Sleek Bohemian palette. I finished my eyes with touch MAC No 34 lashes, BTW these will have to be my least favorite lashes from MAC yet *side eye*.
Lips:
Lip glow in Nutmeg from Burberry.



Today's lesson:  Face your fears!
