Happy Friday! In this week’s blog, we focused on the silvery eye looks at he CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards, spotlighting designers Tory Burch and Rachel Roy, and model Doutzen Kroes.
Ms. Roy, wearing her own designs in a palette of nude, white fur and a gorgeous hammered black velvet maxi skirt, created a smoky silver eye, starting with a base of silvered lids that swept into the crease, the inner corners of the eye and under the lower lash line at the inner corners. Then she added a deeper smoked silver to the outer corners of the eye and under the lower lashes, and either eyelash extensions or a strip of false lashes on top, and plenty of black mascara on the lower lashes. She also rimmed her lower lids with black eyeliner as well for an exotic look. Starting with ColorOn’s Platinum & Pearls instant eye shadow from the Metallics Variety Kit, confining the shadow to the lid and crease, then adding our Smooth Patina Silver Shimmer loose mineral pigment to the outer corners and below the lower lashes to create that shimmering smoky look, and add either a strip of falsies, or multiple coats of black mascara. She opted for a muted pinkish-nude mouth and glowing skin, letting her eyes be the focal point.
And last but never least, today’s winner of a free 10-application Custom Kit is Lateetha Inderkarran of Brooklyn, New York. She’ll be watching her mailbox next to see what beautiful surprise we send her. We’re encouraging our Winners Circle members to post their experiences on our Facebook Fan Page once they’ve had time to play with their new makeup, so that all of you get the benefit of real feedback on the products. And that goes for anyone who is using ColorOn – post your look to our Facebook page and tell everyone what colors you used. We’re a community, and it would be great if you shared your tips and tricks with everyone else!
Have a wonderful weekend, and we’ll be back next week. And be on the lookout for an announcement of some very special Winter Kits, coming soon!
