For the eyes I used my Lorac Pro Palette 2, beginning with Buff all of the lid and up to the brow bone. I wanted the centre of my lid to be fairly bright, so I sandwiched the shimmery white colour called Snow in between Silver, which was packed onto the outer and inner-third of my lids. Cool Gray was my transition colour and Charcoal helped give a smokier effect to the outer corners. I also used a black liquid eye liner to create a thin feline flick.
I feel like cool tone eyes have the tendency to wash me out, so I used a ton of bronzer to warm up my skin. I also used a matte red lipstick to create balance from the shimmer on my lids.
In my opinion, this is perfectly suitable for evening wear - especially if there's a party - but I also think it's easily adjustable to wear every day. The eyes can be paired with a nude lip, or the lip can be worn with a simple neutral eye. However, I always say makeup is meant to be fun and a special holiday is the best excuse to experiment and go a little overboard.
- Buff (all over lid)
- Cool Gray (crease/lower lashline)
- Silver (inner/outer thirds of lid and lower lashline)
- Charcoal (outer-v)
