Sparkling Silvery Taupe (Using Kat Von D Saint and Sinner Palette)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Immaculate in the Kat Von D Saint and Sinner Palette is a really interesting shade and one I couldn’t wait to try out in a look.  At first glance, it looks like a light, bright silver but on application, it has taupe and tan inflections to it, depending on how it catches the light.  For this look, I used Immaculate on the lid to give a pop of brightness, along with olive green and chocolate elsewhere to give some depth to the eyes.  

To complement the look, I used MAC Metallic Lipstick in Forbidden Romance on the lips (a metallic warm brownish-coppery rose), Too Faced Love Flush Blusher in Love Hangover (satin peachy-pink) on the cheeks and Anastasia Glow Powder in Starburst (pale metallic pearly-pink) to highlight.  If you want something with a little more impact, MAC Chili lipstick (matte orangey-brown) works really well with this look too.

Products

Base: Too Faced Shadow Insurance Primer (clear)
Crease: Immaculate (deep satin olive green)

Lid: Heaven (light metallic silvery-taupe)
Outer Lid: Revelation (deep satin brown with copper and gold sparkles)
Highlight: Amen (light matte beige)
Black mascara (upper and lower lashes)

Steps

1. Apply Too Faced Shadow Insurance all over the lid as a base. You can either use your fingers or a flat synthetic brush (e.g. MAC 242).  

2. Sweep Immaculate into the crease using a windshield wiper motion (e.g. MAC 217). 

3. Take a flat shader brush (e.g. MAC 239) and pat Heaven on the lid.  

4. Take a flat shader brush (e.g. MAC 239) and pat Revelation on to the outer lid.  This step helps to tie together the cooler shimmery silvery-taupe on the lid and the warmer olive green in the crease.

5. Using a crease/blender brush (e.g. MAC 217) or a pointed crease brush (e.g. MAC 226), sweep Amen on to the browbone to highlight and blend out the edges of the crease colour. 

6. Apply plenty of black mascara to the top and bottom lashes.

7. I used Love Hangover to add some peachy-pink warmth to my cheeks.  I applied Starburst to the tops of my cheekbones for a subtle highlight.

8. To finish the look, I used Forbidden Romance on the lips to add a warm, shimmery rose-brown sheen to the lips.  If you want something with more impact, MAC Chili is an orangey-brown lipcolour which works really well with this look too.
