Wide eyed Metallics!

Metallics have always had a place in my creativity and vanity and will remain. I love the scintillating effect that they impart on eyes and how they open them up. I must add that sometimes its better to skip "liners" and bring life to a look. I don't deny that I haven't used pencil liners in most of the published looks, but I make sure that it is barely visible as too much definition can kill the aura of the look. Overtly coated voluminous lashes take the liner's place giving  "tight lined" look but opens up eyes really well.

Anyways here is another weird combination of bright silver and bronze. I have used my Dior 5 coleur palette in this look called "Tropical Lights", which was purchased in impulse and rarely used. Its got some wonderful looking bronzes and greens making the palette as wonderful as any other Dior palette. I don't strongly recommend it though. Looking forward to buy "Girlactik Beauty" cosmetics,an American prestige cosmetic brand which has some of the best glitters and shimmers in the market and soon shall put my reviews too.

Lets get the look.


  • Clinique Even Better Makeup SPF 15
  • Clinique All About Eyes concealer
  • Clinique Blended Loose Powder
  • Clinique Fresh bloom All Over Color in Almond Blossom for cheeks. It gives picture perfect metallic radiance to the skin with minimal chances of going OTT


Keep the lips clear and neutral with just clear balm. This adds youthfulness to the look.


  • MAC Paint Pot in Dangerous Cuvee on the lids blended and diffused into crease.Rim the lids thinly with brown eye pencil or bronze eye pencil for subtle definitions.
  • Take the taupey-silver eyeshadow from Dior paletter (in between) and apply it all over the lid with a flat brush.
  • Apply the bronze eyeshadow in crease and outer corners.
  • Take the pale silvery green (which looks like bright silver only in camera with 0.1% hint of light green) to apply in inner corners.
  • Smoke out silvery taupe on lower lids blending it into bronze towards outer corners.
  • Highlight the brow bone with silvery pink from the quint.
  • Add dollops of Dior Extase volumizing mascara and comb brows with brow gel.

Hope you enjoyed it!!

Till then,
