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. 
Glitzy Glimmers


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?

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?

Okay guys as I have said before I am guilty of rarely ever wearing sunscreen. I just never liked the feel of it on my skin. I always felt like it made me greasy & clogged my pores. However, once I heard about this product I was very intrigued. NIOD - Survival 30 It actually isn’t sold in the United States for some reason so I had to purchase it on a UK website. (Beauty Bay) It is an antioxidant serum with SPF 30. At first, it appears to be tinted but it’s actually not. On NIOD’s website they state: “The slight tinted appearance is derived from the active technologies including Lutein, Fractionated Melanin and Pycnogenol.” It blends in with your skin so easily & does not leave a white cast like some other SPF products. However this serum literally makes my skin tone soo even & perfect! It also contains silicone so it completely smooths over my pores. AND besides all that great stuff, it’s a mineral sunscreen! So it protects against environmental & lifestyle issues. Like UV rays, blue light, etc. I have never loved a product as much as this one! I literally cannot believe how good my skin looks while using this stuff! For a 30ml bottle, I paid $33 on the Beauty Bay site. For me, that is completely worth it! It comes in this adorable packaging & pretty glass bottle. It also has a pump dispenser & squirts out the perfect amount for a single use! I really can’t recommend this stuff enough guys! It’s wonderful!! @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick
I was so excited to try these out because I love moisturizers & I am always in search of a good one! These looked & sounded very promising! They’re from a woman owned company, completely natural, vegan, & cruelty free! However, I was quite disappointed. EARTH HARBOR - MERMAID MILK Nutrient Glow Moisturizer This moisturizer claims to give you a glow right away & it contains spirulina + matcha. I was excited about the matcha because it has so many amazing benefits for skin. It has a very whipped consistency which I like. However it always contains essential oils that were strong, although not toooo strong for my liking. But I’m really just not a fan of essential oils in my face creams. The moisturizer did make my skin appear a little brighter but the cream just sat on my face. All day long I could touch my face & still feel the cream sitting there! I hate that feeling! It also almost gave me a greasy appearance after a while? Not a fan. EARTH HARBOR - SIREN SILK Multi-Tasking Hydration Creme This one was absolutely awful. If I could give it 0 stars I would. It says to use it at night time & the apply it at least 5 minutes before bed so it can absorb on your face & not your pillow. It contains Sea Retinol + other Superherbs which normally make me love a product! But that just wasn’t enough here. First, when I put it on my face my eyes started to actually burn & I felt suffocated from the scent. It was THAT strong. Guys, I’m not being dramatic at all. The smell like attacked me it was crazy! I have never had something like that happen with a face cream! I couldn’t believe how strong the fragrance was. & to top it off, it wasn’t even a pretty smell. My husband described it as smelling like floor cleaner. But I powered through. The longer I had it on, the more “used” to the smell I got. So, I wore it overnight. But then I woke up even more upset with it! I had pilling all over my face. It almost looked like my face was peeling but it wasn’t, it was jus the cream. One thing I cannot stand about a moisturizer is pulling. That’s enough for me to throw it out! It also didn’t really even moisturize my face that well! All in all, I hated this experience. But if you want, you should try them out for yourself, don’t let my experience deter you from trying something new! I however, will be sticking with my Youth To The People Dream Mask & Superfood Whipped Moisturizer! Love those two!!

Thank you @cheriefor this amazing gift 🤩 “buh-koo-chee-all” HERBIVORE - Bakuchiol Anti-Aging Serum I’ve already become a diehard Herbivore lover. So to receive this beauty was super exciting. When I started my acne journey on Cherie I was (and still am) a Differin Acne Gel stan. This was my choice of retinol and I wanted it strong to treat acne and boost my cellular turnover. Now that my acne is currently under control and it’s getting hot again, I definitely want something smooth and gentle. Bakuchiol is a gentler alternative to the very popular ingredient retinol. So essentially you’ll get overall youthful results for your skin. I haven’t tested this on my acne theory yet, but overall my face has been smooth and irritation free. This serum does not have a smell which I love for products of this caliber. I also love that it’s light and not drying at all. I use this at night and since i have a tolerance to retinol I use it every night. I haven’t been using it long enough to see results (about 12 weeks) but I definitely can’t wait to finish this. Have you tried Bakuchiol?
