Silver, Gold and Roses...

I am a big fan of rosy glowing complexions rather than peaches and oranges (of course it changes with trends) and I invest in all the possible products that have rosy hues.

This look in metallics VS roses and is very dramatic and flattering. Lets see how to do this look.


  • Stila One Step Foundation (bought from 
  • Kryolan Loose Powder in TL 14 for matte effect. Matte skin goes very very with metallics as it accentuates the metal powders by absorbing light whilst the powders reflect light.


  • Shiseido The Makeup Lipgloss in Chianti Rose
  • For more coverage you can apply Raspberry from Clarins Joli Rouge,


Eyes are the focal point of this look.
  • Apply Benefit Lemonaid Primer
  • Top it with MAC Paint Pot in Vintage Selection for a bit of rosy color to peep through.
  • I have used Mineralize eyeshadows which were limited editions so let me suggest some dupes from the main line of MAC. 
  • For Silvery pink effect, with a damp flat brush, apply MAC pigment in Pink Opal on the entire lid.
  • Just a touch of nude brown eyeshadow like Wedge in the crease.
  • Keep the brow bone bare to focus only on the eyelids. You can dust some of your iridescent blush in that area in case you want a completed look.
  • On the lower lid, with a damp flat brush to accentuate the color, apply MAC AmberLights eyeshadow.
  • To create multi dimensional effects I have used chunky silver glimmer on the upper lids (from Blue Sorcery) and chunky gold glimmer on the lower lids (Limited Edition MAC Reflets from Makeup Art Cosmetics Collection)
  • Apply lots of volumizing mascara. I chose Clinique High Impact Mascara in Black and applied 4-5 coats.

Here are few more pics.

This may not be your everyday look but its fun to create one. Hope you like it. Do let me know!!

Till then,
