silverliners

Sometimes I get hung up on finding a product. I’m still searching for the perfect deep, matte purple full-coverage lipstick and a perfect yellow shimmer eyeshadow that doesn’t come across as gold. The other day it was silver eyeliner. Luckily, there are many options out there. I love silver eyeliner when it is used to “open” up the eyes (pencil formulas). I also love it as the “first” layer with a thinner stripe of black liquid liner applied below it. I love silver with deep, dramatic lips. Here is what I came across as I went “shopping”.

Cheaper (under $10): Avon’s mark Metalliner Hook Up Eye Glam in Quick Silver is a liquid silver eyeliner. It’s cheap and is nice if you only occasionally want a silver eyeliner like for a night out. I found that it only wore for about a work day (8 hours) and then flaked really, really bad. It retails for $5.50. NYX has a Liquid Liner in Silver that goes for $5. There is also a NYX Longwearing Eye Pencil in Silver that goes for $2. It’s a very nice pencil for the price. Sephora brand has a Nano Eyeliner in Precious Silver for $5 (not pictured). It’s a smaller pencil but not a bad formula. And Sephora Brand has a liquid, foiled silver liner, Long Lasting Metallic Eyeliner in Silver. It goes for $10 and has that classic liquid liner felt tip. Another cheaper liquid liner option is Boots Stay Perfect Eye Liner in Star for about $9 (not pictured). L’Oreal Hip Color Chrome Eyeliner in Silver Lighting is a nice Urban Decay substitute. It goes for $10. Manic Panic Metallic Eyeliner in Silver Stardust is a silver pencil liner for under $9.

More Expensive: Diane Brill Eye Jewelry Liquid Eyeliner Lace Diamonds is a shimmery, long wearing formula with a fine brush. It retails for $24. Shu Uemura has 2 great silver eyeliners in different formulas. There is the Painting Liner in Silver. This is a long wearing waterproof formula. What I like about it is that you get to use your favorite liner brush and you can use this as a shadow if you apply it with a shadow brush or fingertips. It goes for $24. If you prefer a super smooth pencil there is Drawing Pencil in ME Silver 06 that retails for $19. There is Prescriptives Moonbeam Reflective Eyeliner in Beaming Silver for $17.50 (not pictured). I love Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil formula and there just so happens to be a silver called Dime for $17 (not pictured). Another one in the same price point and similiar long-wearing formula is Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes in Silver for $17 (not pictured). If you are looking for a more “natural” eye liner in a silver try Korres Soft Eyeliner Pencil in Silver. It’s nice for sensitive eyes and goes for $16 (not pictured). If you are looking for a silver glitter in a silver base try NARS Glitter Pencil Eyeliner in Roxbury. It retails for $24 (not pictured). And if you want the same thing but in a liquid base try Kat Von D Autograph Eyeliner in Love Metal for $16 (not pictured). If you want a silver cream liner in a spooky packaging try Manic Panic Spider Liner in Stardust. It retails for under $17 (not pictured).

We all have our favorite bimbo. Jane just happens to be one of my favorites. I feel you can just see the pain on her face in every single pic. She seemed to love and hate being the bleached blonde. She knew no other way. I love this pic of her because the pain is vaguely there but not too much, she knows how to put on a show,  and I am a sucker for coral lips. Orange lips make me swoon.

To get this look apply concealer where needed and a powder foundation such as YSL Radiant Touch Concealer and Dianne Brill Fresh Water Pearl Powder Foundation in your shade. Brows are filled in to perfection. Fill in brows with a pencil such as Benefit Instant Brow Pencil in a shade that suits your complexion. Apply foundation powder to eyelids to absorb oil and even the skintone of the eyelids. Apply a nude shadow such as the lightest shade in Diane Brill Eye Shadow Trio in Bedroom Eyes from lash line to brow bone. Apply the medium shade lightly in the crease. Take the deepest shade and wet a liner brush. Apply closely to the lashline to add depth and fullness to the lashes. I suggest applying false lashes because the eye makeup is very minimal. Plus, it adds classic glamour. Or apply lots of mascara. Cheeks are peachy perfect. Apply Avon Be Blushed Cheek Color in Tropical Peach to the apples and blend and layer as many times as you need. Now to the amazing lips. Apply Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil in Ozone, a clear to keep this bold color from bleeding. Apply Estee Lauder Signature Lipstick in Spiced Coral. Apply a sheer coral gloss over lips for extra shine and fullness, something like Estee Lauder High Gloss in Coral. I love the scent of that stuff. And to make this look even more fun apply Jean Paul Gaultier Classique EDT fragrance. Even the packaging is Jayne friendly. No go out and have fun being a bimbo.
