With New Year’s Eve around the corner, you may be scoping out the latest makeup looks and makeup trends for the occasion. Without a doubt, metallic makeup should be one of the first trends that you consider. More specifically, silver eyeliner. Rather than sporting a gold eye, why not opt for a silver shade that will perfectly complement the ball when it drops at midnight? Keep reading for five silver eyeliner looks to try.
Silver Eyeliner Look #1: Silver Wing
When it comes to eyeliner techniques for a night out, it doesn’t get much better than winged eyeliner. Try creating your sharpest winged eyeliner look, using a silver liquid liner to finish off your smoky eye. Here’s how:
Step #1: Prime your eyes
Step #2: Grab your shadow
To make creating your smoky eye easier, use an eyeshadow palette like the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Quads in Cookies & Cream. First, apply the lightest gray shade to your lid. Then, apply the dark gray shade in your crease. Deepen your crease by applying the black shade to the outer “V” of your eye. Complete this step by placing the lightest shade around the inner corner of your eyes.
Step #3: Line your eyes
It’s time to reach for your silver eyeliner! Apply your liquid liner along your upper lash line, making sure to wing it out at the end. Then, line your waterline with a black pencil eyeliner, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof, Up to 24HR Pencil Eyeliner in Black.
Step #4: Coat your lashes
Finish your eye makeup look by applying a few coats of mascara! We love the L’Oréal Paris Unlimited Lash Lifting and Lengthening Washable Mascara.
Silver Eyeliner Look #2: Silver Accent
If you love the idea of statement silver liquid liner but aren’t sold on the winged eyeliner look, consider adding a silver accent to an already bold eye makeup look.
Step #1: Choose your eye shadow look
With this accent eyeliner, you have some flexibility with the eye shadow you choose. Whether you want to rock a smoky eye or a popping burgundy shade is up to you. We particularly love a silver accent on top of a striking black shadow.
Step #2: Create your accent
Take your silver liquid eyeliner and use it to line the inner corner of your crease. Keep your line sharp, clean, and sleek and stop at the halfway point of your eye.
Step #3: Finish with mascara
Round out your silver eyeliner look with a few coats of the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara Mystic Black.
Silver Eyeliner Look #3: Silver Inner Corner
Another way to take your eye makeup look up a notch—with the help of silver eyeliner? Brighten your eyes by using the striking shade to line your inner corner. For this look, use a silver pencil eyeliner, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof, Up to 24HR Pencil Eyeliner in Silver.
