Welcome back everyone, if you have followed my makeup looks for some time now you will know I am a sucker for any warm and neutral tones. It is not very often I use cooler tones around round my eyes so for todays look I wanted to cater to you guys who love greys and silvers. I have paired todays silvery smokey eye with a cool toned lip which I think is really complementing.

Face:
Becca Shimmering Skin Perfecor Liquid in Pearl
L'Oread True Match Foundation
Cover FX Custom Cover Drops
Urban Decay Naked Concealer
Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit
Benefit Hoola Bronzer
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Give Me Sun
Sleek Blush in Pink Parfait
Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Champagne Pop

After priming my face I first used the Liquid Illuminator from Becca and applied this to areas of the face I wish to highlight therefore, the tops of the cheek bones, bridge and tip of the nose, top of the brows and cupids bow. Even though we are going to apply foundation next the glow will show through giving a really highlighted effect. For foundation I used L'Oreal True Match and Cover FX Custom cover drops to create a flawless base then concealed my under eyes. To set my concealer today I used the yellow toned setting powder from the contour palette then used the shade below to contour areas of the face. I like to blend my contour out with Benefits Hoola bronzer as it's a nice shade to transition into bronzer. As this is more of a cool toned makeup I used Give Me Sun to add only a little warmth then used a cooler blusher from Sleek to pair with it. Even though we have already applied our highlight at the beginning I went over the same areas with Becca Campagne Pop Highlighter for and extra glowing effect. 

Eyes:
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Auburn
Anastasia Beverly Hills Tinted Brow Gel in Brunette
Makeup Geek Eyeshadows in Barcelona Beach, Bedrock and Prom Night
Illamasqua Eyeshadow in Machine
Avon Black Eye Pencil
Maybelline The Falsies Mascara
Maybelline Black Gel Eyeliner
Huda Beauty False Lashes in Scarlett

I first filled in my brows with the brow wiz pencil to ad more structure and fullness then set them with the tinted brow gel. For our cool toned smokey eye I started off by using Barcelona Beach which is a greyish brown into the crease with a fluffy brush. I next used Bedrock which is a very cool grey into the crease also and built this up so it was quite pigmented. For the lid I used Prom Night which is a really nice shimmery silver and packed this on with a dense brush. To make the outer corners a little darker I used a small amount of Machine which gave the eyes a little more definition. I lined the top lash line with the black gel eyeliner however I didn't extend the wing out to far, I used a very light hand so the wing was barley noticeable. I tight-lined the top and lower water lines with my black eye pencil then used a mix of Bedrock and Prom night along the lower lash line to give a nice smokey eye effect. To finish off the eyes I applied plenty of mascara to the top and bottom lashes and applied my falsies too. 

Lips:
MAC Lip Pencil in whirl
Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte Liquid Lipstick in Ecstacy 

I thought a cool toned lip would pair really nicely with a silvery eye look, so I first used the Whirl pencil to line the lips. I then applied a couple of coats of the liquid lipstick over the top. 

I hope you like todays cool toned grey and silvery smokey makeup look guys, let me know your thoughts in the comments.
