Silver is a major makeup trend this fall and winter. It’s futuristic, glamorous, and surprisingly easy to pull off.
Here are six ways to sport the ethereal space princess look this season.
Mad for Mercury
Using your fingers, apply a cream based silver eyeshadow all over your upper eyelids. Use patting and dabbing motions to pack on the pigments, and complete the look with a bold matte cobalt blue lip.
The easiest way to wear silver without going too crazy? Apply a touch of silver eyeshadow onto the inner corners of your eyes for a subtle highlight.
And if your’re into the “strobing” scene, apply a light dusting of silver along the top of your cheekbones for a modern sheen.
Switch up your usual black and brown eyeliners for a silver one instead. You can use a black kohl pencil to intensify the outer corners of your eyes for a touch of definition.
Create a cut crease using a dark grey eyeliner pencil and draw exaggerated lower lashes with a black gel eyeliner. Apply silver eyeshadow in between the drawn lashes and top your lips with a frosty pink lipstick.
For a glamorous and galactic night out, go for a smokey metallic grey smokey eye and pair the look with slicked back hair, matte burgundy lips and a silver manicure.
