Silver Fox

Hello darlings,

Inspire a starry romance with glittering, silver eyes. This is an easy, four-step beauty look, perfect for sharing secret glances with your latest crush and causing a flutter wherever you go.

1. Grab Dior's Gris Gris 5-Colour Eyeshadow palette ($58) and dip an eyeshadow brush into the silvery-blue shade on the top left. Apply the shadow across your eyelids, stopping at the crease.

2. Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder ($49) is shaping up to be one of this summer's hottest makeup picks. The shades in this range complement nearly every complexion. Although I'm quite fair, I use a pinch of the deep brown shade (#5) and it makes me look totally fab.  Just brush the color across your cheekbones for a healthy, becoming blush.

Of course, I always say I am super-picky. Rest assured these shades are a) not too orange-y and b) not a dull brown (makeup that makes you look dusty is a no-no-no-no, XOX).

3. Slide on a neutral pink lipstick, such as Laura Mercier Crème Lip Color in Rose ($22). This is an easy, go-anywhere shade.

4. Finish with your favorite mascara. Mine is currently YSL Mascara Singulier in Deep Violet ($30), which makes eyelashes appear thick and soft as velvet.


P.S. Now, don't forget to bat your eyelashes at least once a day. It's a form of exercise I strongly recommend.
