6 Best Ways to Wear Silver Makeup
Aug. 14, 2020
Silver, glittery eyeshadow has definitely been having its moment this year. From the bold and brazen eye looks made famous on the hit HBO show Euphoria, to a more glam, old Hollywood classic, silver shadow is here to stay. If you’re struggling to incorporate this look into your daily wear (yes, it’s possible) or are just ready to breathe some new life into your eye looks, our beauty experts are here to share 6 ways to pull off this sparkly makeup trend.
We see this all the time on the Hollywood elite—a simple, shimmery silver eye paired with a strong wing, and a bold lip for a classically chic look. This makeup look is perfect for special occasions or events and can be easily recreated. Start with an eyeshadow primer all over your lid and then apply your silver shadow all over your eyelid. Finish with a sharp wing, plenty of mascara, and a bold, red lipstick for extra drama.
Silver and Gold
Silver and gold paired together looks amazing on any eye color and any skin tone. To achieve this look, brush a primer all over your lid. Apply a generous amount of golden eyeshadow or gold glitter. Finish the look off with some mascara for drama and a pretty silver liner rimming your eyes for an easy, trendy eye look!
Bright and Icy
Silver eyeliner just works. This cool look works best with all eye colors and we promise your eyes will pop as they peer out under the bright shimmer of silver! This icy liner goes great with a bold lip, a swipe of mascara and a swirl of some highlighter for a truly megawatt look.
Take your classic smoky eye up a notch with this silver, smoked out look! To DIY this look, start with an eyeshadow primer and then cover your lid with your silver shadow. Using a dark shade, like deep brown or black, smoke out this look, starting at the corners of your eyes and dragging inward. Finish this look off with some winged liner, more silver shadow in your inner corners, a nude lip, and tons of mascara to tie everything together.
This eye look is so pretty and so easy! Perfect for a night out with your best gal pals, all you need for this makeup look is tons of silver shadow, some mascara and falsies if you’re feeling them, and your favorite lip color and you’ll be ready to dance the night away (and even match the glitzy disco ball!)
Bring on the smoke! Bring on the drama! This smokey, avant-garde look can easily be achieved and doesn’t have to look perfect. Tons of shadow and drama keep this silvery eyeshadow look interesting and this makeup begs to be worn out for a fun night on the town! To re-create this iconic look, apply a generous amount of silver shade all over your lids. Follow up with some darker colors (think blacks, mauves, and deep greys) and then apply some silver shadow along your lower lash line. Keep the rest of your makeup simple as your eye look takes center stage in this beautiful trend.
These are some of our favorite ways to incorporate silver into your makeup. From the classic to the super trendy, there’s something here for everyone. Silver is bright and shiny, just like you, so we encourage you to try this super fun makeup look out this weekend! Would you try any of these makeup looks?
A Journey of Self 🌹
I figured Black History Month was as good as any opportunity to talk about my self finding. Growing up in a small yet old family, I always had questions about my roots and family history. I also struggled with self conscious doubts about my appearance. Why is my nose this big? Why is my hair this curly? Why am I taller than average? These weighed heavy on my mind growing up because honestly, sticking out sucked. So, I finally dove deep into my family’s origin and decided to do an Ancestry DNA analysis. I immersed myself with every corner of the site. I only got the chance to finish my maternal grandmas side of the family tree, but even that has plenty of gaps. Yet, when I received my DNA results I was stoked. Then I realized, I don’t know much about any of these places. So I dug even deeper. I have a little journal of things I’ve learned and want to know, but this was quite the experience. It was heartbreaking and satisfying at the same time. I highly recommend for every race and background to do this DNA Test. The best part of this was scrolling through photos of the people of the respected countries I was DNA matched to. I swear I saw a girl who looked like me, but everyone else thinks I’m tripping lol. In the end, I’m satisfied with my results and findings. Relatively speaking, this way of self discovery has been the most effective.
Skin Barrier Skin Savior 🙏🏾
Thank you @cheriefor this amazing gift 🤩🤩 Something thing I am very particular about is my moisturizer. My skin barrier tends need the extra TLC and the best thing to give it is moisture. So when I look for a moisturizer I need something that gives me instant hydration and doesn’t clog my pores. So when I received the : BASE BUTTER - Radiate Face Jelly Aloe Vera Gel Face Moisturizer I was so excited! The Brand : ✨Black Owned ✨Women Owned ✨Cruelty Free ✨Non-Comedogenic ✨Vegan ✨Paraben Free 🔑 Ingredients : ✨Aloe Vera Juice ✨Shea Butter ✨Evening Primrose Oil Okay, as you can see your girl woke up DULL! The only thing I did for this video was wash my face and use this to show y’all the transformation! I was using this EVERY night but last night I used my acne treatment routine and your girl FELT THAT (salicylic acid can be so drying to my combo skin). What’s my favorite part? This baby doesn’t have a smell or heavy greasy feel, so it perfect year round! At $21 this is a DEAL ! (The line I used on my cheek covered the entire bottom portion of my face!) Have you tried this brand?
Stay Young Forever? ✨
That’d be great right? Well in taking those steps, I definitely recommend these amazing serums. I was gifted the: Intoxicated Cosmetics: Snake Serum Bee Serum Snail Serum I started using the Snail Serum last night first and wow did I notice a difference. The Snail Serum mainly targets dryness. I used this in place of my usual night time serum and boy did I notice a difference. I N G R E D I E N T S : All Serums contain: ✨Niacinamide Bee Serum: Bee Venom Plant Based Stem Cells Royal Epigen Snake Serum Snake Venom Green & White Tea Extract Peptides Snail Serum Snail Peptide Hyadisine Echinacea Moronga Oil Extract I definitely will try the other serums in my routine as I get used to the Snail Serum but so far my skin is definitely happy. What serum would you like to try?
Wednesday Wellness 🙏🏾
This past week has been rather hard and long for me. I ultimately decided to get back on track with my wellness plan. My main wellness goal for 2021, is to indulge in myself more. I definitely am a firm believe in “as within, so without”. I started my day with: #Four Sigmatic - Mushroom Elixir Mix with Chaga[products]#[FiveStars] I have been getting back into adaptogen and herbal medicine. What we put into our bodies is just as important as what goes on the outside. Adaptogens are apart of ancient medicinal traditions traced all over the world. I also drink Tulsi “Holy Basil” Tea. If you need a pick me up or emotional boost I highly recommend! SUNDAY RILEY - U.F.O. Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil is my treatment of choice I used during the day. Do not be afraid to use salicylic acid during the day. I applied plenty of sunscreen afterwards as well! This is a GODSEND for clearing up acne and acne scarring. It’s by far the best acne treatment I’ve tried and its mostly due to the immediate results I get. This is a dry oil, so it should be used before a heavy moisturizer or sunscreen. THE BODY SHOP - Spa of the World Thai Makrut Lime Firming Oil is a staple in my night time routine. When I want to relax and really unwind I use a body roller with this oil. It smells like a fresh key lime pie and it’s so hydrating. This is great for firming, especially when paired with a body tool. What do you do for wellness?
