I don't know about you, but whenever I see silver I can't help but associate it with the future. And when I do project in to the future (which happens pretty often!), the colours in my mind are quite cool toned and silver always features prominently.
Many people tend to match their make up to their mood, to their hair or to their outfit, but I find that I match my make up to the music I'm listening to. My taste now is much more eclectic than it was 10 years ago and lately I've been getting familiar with the dreamy, electronic tones of synth. The better songs create mythical landscapes in the mind of the listener.
