Now that metallic makeup is in the limelight, it’s time to set our sights on one of the most classic colors of them all: silver. Scrolling through your social media feeds, you’ve likely seen everything from rainbow to smoky eyes in an array of different metallic shades—so why not give a little love to one of the prettiest sparkly hues of them all? If you love the metallic eye makeup trend and want to find a way to incorporate it into your everyday look, below we share our three favorite ways to slay in silver. Grab your makeup bag and get ready to switch up your look!
Whether you’re new to the metallic eye shadow trend or you simply like to stick to one color, monochrome silver eyes are the perfect way to add a pop of shine to your look.
What you’ll need:
Eye primer or concealer
Fluffy eye shadow brush
L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Metallics Eye Shadow in Aluminum Foil
L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara
Get the look by following these simple steps:
Step 1: Prime your lids. For this step, you can use eye primer if you have it, otherwise dab a dot of concealer onto your lids—either will do the trick.
Step 2: Apply silver eye shadow. Dust the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Metallics Eye Shadow in Aluminum Foil onto your lids using a fluffy eye shadow brush. Make sure to keep the color confined between your crease and lash line.
Step 3: Finish with mascara. Apply a coat or two of the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara and voila—you officially have a modern metallic look fit for any occasion.
Dimension is always a good thing. This two-toned silver eye will add depth to your look while remaining simple and chic.

L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Liquid Diamond
Step 1: Prime your lids. Help prevent metallic eye shadow fallout by applying eye primer or a dab of concealer to your lids.
Step 2: Apply light shadow. Use a fluffy eye shadow brush to swipe the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Silver Sky along your lid and just beyond your crease from your outer to inner corner. You always want to apply your lightest shadow first because it helps your darker colors that are layered on top to blend easier.
Step 3: Add dimension with a darker shadow. Pop open your L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Liquid Diamond and dust it into your outer crease. Make sure to blend it all together so that there’s a seamless transition that looks like a natural shadow.
Step 4: Finish with mascara. A coat of the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara will help add extra definition to your two-toned silver eye.

Step 1: Prime your lids. Eye primer or concealer: you pick. With just a dab you can help prevent your eye makeup from flaking down onto your cheeks throughout the day.
Step 2: Apply a light silver shadow. Open your L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Metallics Eye Shadow in Aluminum Foil and dust some of the pigment onto your lids using a fluffy blending eye shadow brush.
Step 3: Add dimension to your crease. Next, use your densely-bristled brush to apply the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Violet Beaute into your outer crease.
Step 4: Create a sunset glow. Then dust some of the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Metallics Eye Shadow in Rose Chrome above your crease to create an ethereal glowing effect.
Step 5: Dust your under-eye. Extend the sunset-inspired look below your eye with a touch of the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Metallics Eye Shadow in Rose Chrome along the inner half of your lower lid and the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Violet Beaute along the outer half. Make sure to blend!
Step 6: Draw a wing tip. Add extra definition to your upper lid with a thin wing tip using the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eyeliner in Black Party.
Step 7: Finish with mascara. You know the drill: untwist the cap of your L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara and give your lashes some love.
See, silver can be pretty…well, pretty!
