Silver Fox

I was mesmerized by Chanel’s Spring 2013 RTW runway makeup, that I’ve decided to do an inspired look based on it. I usually prefer warm-toned colors, like gold and bronze over silver, so it was definitely interesting to do this look.

I used Tinsel eyeshadow from the Sleek Makeup iDivine Sparkle 2 palette in this tutorial. I believed the makeup artist for Chanel used a silver cream eyeshadow (illusion d’ombre) to create the look. Since I don’t own any silver cream eyeshadow, I decided to use a powder eyeshadow. Tinsel eyeshadow is very creamy and can be easily blended.

It’s a very simple and wearable look. Since the focus is on the eyes, everything else is downplayed. In the runway, models were seen with bare face, but I decided to add a blush just so that I don’t look too washed out.


1. I applied Tinsel all over the lid using a flat eyeshadow brush.

2. Using a fluffy blending brush, I blended the color from the crease all the way up to the brow bone.

3. Using a small shader brush, I applied Tinsel on the lower lid.

4. I created a winged liner along the upper lashline using Kate Sharp eyeliner.

5. I also lightly lined the lower lashline using the same eyeliner.

6. I lined my waterline using L’oreal Voluminous Smoldering eyeliner.

7. I curled my lashes, and applied Maybelline Express Volume Turbo Boost mascara on both upper and lower lashes.

8. I filled my brows in using Dolly Winked Brow pencil no. 3. (if you notice the difference between the last 2 pictures below on the brow, that’s because I brush the brows after I filled them in using a clean spooly).

9. For the face, I applied Urban Decay Naked foundation using IPKN Auto Wave makeup.

10. Under the eyes, I applied MAC Pro Conceal/Correct palette in Medium.

11. I powdered my face lightly on the T-zone using loose powder.

12. On the cheeks, I applied MAC Dainty blush.

13. On the lips, I applied Chanel Levres Scintillantes in Volupte.

Silver Smoke

Please do forgive me for the unrully brows. I’ve been trying to grow them out so I can try out BrowHaus at Grand Indonesia, but I’m dying to tweeze them myself! *breathe in breathe out* Hopefully by the end of the week I can get them waxed!

If you read my tweets (follow my twitter: @KireiMakeup), I’ve wanted to do a tutorial using my Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette. Today’s look is a silver smoky makeup. I think the look would look great on brides and those who prefer smoky makeup for prom/parties. Lots of drama on this look. Very intense! Lots of silver, lots of shimmer and very dark around the lashes and outer V.

If you aren’t too comfortable with blending or applying eyeshadow on the outer V, alternatively what you can do is to apply silver all over the lid and create a heavy liner on upper and lower lashes with black eyeliner (as well as on the waterline). Top it off with lots and lots of mascara.

With this look, try to “wing” the smoky eyes slightly for an uplifting effect. You need a good blending brush (or two) for the smoky effect.


1. I prepped my eyelid using Urban Decay Primer Potion in Sin.

2. On the lid, I applied Pistol from UD Naked 2 palette using a flat eyeshadow brush.

3. On the inner part of the lid, I applied Suspect from UD Naked 2 palette using a flat eyeshadow brush (not in picture).

4. Using a small fluffy blending brush, I appliedĀ  Blackout from UD Naked 2 palette on the outer V and slightly on the crease.

5. Using Smashbox bullet brush, I blended the crease out to ensure there’s no harsh line.

6. Using an angled eyebrow brush, I applied Suspect on the inner half of the lower lid and Blackout on the outer half.

7. Using Blackout, I created a winged liner along the upper lashline, making the liner thicker on the outer part and thinner on the inner part.

8. I lined my waterline using L’oreal Voluminous Smoldering eyeliner.

9. I curled my lashes and applied Maybelline Volume Express Turbo Boost mascara on both top and bottom lashes.

10. I filled my brows using Dollywinked brow pencil. I applied Foxy from Naked 2 palette under the brows.

11. (optional), I applied Ardell Demure and 110 false eyelashes on the upper lashes.

12. For the face, I applied Estee Lauder double wear light foundation using a foundation brush from the center of the face blending it towards the outer perimeter of the face.

13. Under the eyes, I applied YSL Touche Eclat and blended it using my finger.

14. On the cheeks, I applied MAC Cubic.

15. I applied MAC Shadowy on the sides of the nose.

16. For the lips, I applied Chanel Confidentielle lip rouge.
