Kim Kardashian, Ginnifer Goodwin, Cara Delevigne and many more have given their approval to the silvery strand hair trend by now. Gone are the days of hiding your stubborn greys. Courtesy multiple Instagram accounts and celebrity tweets, you can now rock icy silver locks without having to be too bold!
It is unlikely, true. But it also adds the perfect straight-cut edge to any look and any hairstyle at all!
To get your own
Pre-lighten the hair to a clean white blonde and then tone with a personalised grey mix tone. If you have naturally brown eyes with a warm skin tone, go for darker roots and place the grey tones throughout the mid lengths and ends of the hair. For people with paler skin tones, colder, lighter shades of grey are perfect.
Hair dyes and silver toned shampoos are the key attributes that can either make this look or completely wreck it. But that’s not all, as the kind of make-up you sport also determines a lot about how you can carry it off.
Make up hacks
For the eyes, apply a light, highlighting shade of eye shadow. Use a darker colour in the crease to help open up the eye. Use a really fine eyeliner to apply just above the top lash line. This helps making the eyes look bigger and eyelashes, thicker.
Neutral foundation, highlights, blush and illuminating cream applied to cheeks after blush are a must when it comes to the face. For lips, find a colour that complements your skin tone. Again, if you have warm skin tones, go for colours with a warm yellow under tone and for cooler skin tones, go for a blue undertone.
