Stepping up from the bronze podium is the silver.

This look will suit the cool blondes (more of the Scandinavian look rather than the sunkissed Californian blonde); those of you with silver grey, pure white or salt and pepper hair and also the cool brunettes.

For the brunettes this ranges from the light mousey shades to the blue blacks so long as you don’t have any warm red or golden highlights. Cool highlights such as burgundy and purple are fine. But for the flamed haired from pale strawberry blonde to deep auburn you look better wearing a warmer bronze or gold shade.

Here’s how to get the cool ice Silver Siren look:

Party Evening Look by 2true (as in image above)

1. Apply the silver from True Colour Eyeshadow duo shade 3 over the eyelid and under the lower lashes.

2. Lightly dust Eyeshadow Dazzlers shade 6 under eyebrows and across the cheeks as a silver highlighter.

3. Create the sleek sharp lines with the Effortless Eyeliner in black.

4. Volumise lashes with Voluptulash Mascara in black or add the ultra lightweight Glamour lashes for full on glamour. Add a touch of the silver Glitter Mascara for that frosty tipped look.

5. Lastly use Crystal Lipgloss in the pale shade 3 to complete your glitzy party look.
