look of the day - inspired by lisa eldridge's cara delevingne video

I was going to take more inspiration from tumblr pictures today, but Lisa Eldridge, a very well-known makeup artist who has worked with countless celebrities, just posted a video today about the look she did for Cara Delevingne at the W Magazine party.

I tweaked the look only just a bit; Lisa used a smoky, green-tinted silver for the majority of the lid, but I used a shade that was similar for the outer corner and crease instead, opting for a vibrant silver for the lid. Plus, it gave me an excuse to use a Sugarpill shadow I don't often reach for. I also skipped the false lashes because I still haven't gotten a new lash glue since my old one separated and turned into a gross mess.

This look is definitely meant for a party and I love it! I obviously don't have anywhere to go tonight, so you're getting shots of me wearing my Next to Normal hoodie instead. I can't get over how perfect this is for fall--metallics are in. I don't usually wear silver eyeshadow, either, so that says volumes about this.
