Aluminum Taupe: Makeup Look

I am slowly (but surely) working on a post where I will review all of my Coastal Scents Eyeshadows so you will see them popping up in several upcoming makeup looks throughout the month of May. I "recently" (over a month ago, LOL) acquired a bunch of them during their half off sale where each individual eyeshadow was $0.99!! Anyway, here's what I came up with today...

I generally find silver eyeshadow really hard to wear because I have strong warm/yellow undertones in my skin and the contrast ends up looking harsh and frosty. However, I found that wearing taupe silvers (like Coastal Scent's Aluminum Taupe) and charcoal grays (like Thunderous) make a harmonious combination.

Do you also find silvers or grays hard to wear? Have a nice weekend, lovelies!

  11. I have a hard time with silvers and greys, too, though I don't really like a lot of bronzes on me either. It's taupe or rose golds for me. :D Your liner is so crisp!
