Silver glitter eyeshadow has been making an appearance everywhere from our social media feeds to the red carpet. There’s just something undeniably glamorous about shimmering eyes. And the best part is, this glimmering eye makeup trend doesn’t have to be complicated. Below, we’ve put together a simple silver glitter eyeshadow look, as well as accompanying face and lip makeup looks, so you can pull off this sparkling makeup trend.
To create this eye-catching look, follow our step-by-step tutorial:
Before applying any eye makeup, you want to prime your eyes with an eye primer that will prep your lids, allow colors to appear more vibrant, and keep your makeup lasting all night long. In a pinch, a dab of concealer or foundation will also do the trick!
Start by layering a silver eyeshadow, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Metallics Eye Shadow in Aluminum Foil, onto your eyelids. This metallic shadow will give your lids the perfect shimmery base for your glitter. Then, define your crease with a dark gray shadow like the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eye Shadow in Meet Me in Paris. Drag this same eye shadow along your lower lash line, smudging it out for a smoky effect. Add even more depth to your eye makeup look by applying the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eye Shadow in Noir Cest Noir to the outer V of your eye.
Use a patting motion to apply silver eye glitter to your eyelid to ensure there isn’t any fallout. Pack the glitter on for a bold, sparkling look. If you want your glitter to really stand out, apply a bit of the L’Oréal Paris Brilliant Eyes in Shimmer Liquid Eye Shadow Makeup in String of Pearls to the center of your lid prior. Add some contrast by applying a gold metallic eye shadow, like the L’Oréal Paris Brilliant Eyes Shimmer Liquid Eye Shadow Makeup in Crown Gold, to your lower lash line.
Editor’s tip: Weren’t able to prevent fallout? No worries! Use a small piece of adhesive tape to pick up stray specks of glitter.
Finish your silver glitter eyeshadow look by applying a coat or two of the L’Oréal Paris Bambi Eye Waterproof Mascara, Lasting Volume in Blackest Black to your lashes, building voluptuous volume and intense length with a few swipes.
With an eye makeup look this dramatic, it’s important to define your eyebrows. Use the L’Oréal Paris Unbelievabrow Longwear Waterproof Brow Gel to play up your arches and give your brows a quick dose of drama.
Now that you know how to create a simple (but stunning) silver glitter eyeshadow look, you’re probably wondering how you can complete the rest of your makeup. Keep reading to find out!
Get a super-contoured look by using the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Longwear Foundation Shaping Sticks. Use a color that’s one shade lighter than your skin tone and apply it in an upside-down triangle below each eye, on the center of your forehead, above your cheekbones, down the bridge of your nose, and on your chin. Then apply a color that’s one to two shades darker than your skin tone to the hollows of your cheeks, temples, and either side of your nose. Blend the creamy formula out using the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender.
A pretty flush is a must! Apply a deep blush shade, like the L’Oréal Paris True Match Blush in Rosy Outlook, to the apples of your cheeks.
Of course, you’ll want to add some glow to your complexion to complement your sparkling eyes. Apply the L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Glow Amour Glow Boosting Drops in Golden Hour to your cheekbones and the tip of your nose to play off of the gold eye shadow you used earlier.
With such a glam eye makeup look, your lip color should be just as luxurious. Nothing says lavish quite like a bright red lip. Use the L’Oréal Paris Rouge Signature Lightweight Matte Colored Ink, High Pigment in Empowered for a long-lasting, ultra-matte red lip.
To maintain a “just applied” makeup look throughout the night, spritz the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Spray and Set Make-Up Oil-Free Setting Spray in an “X” and “T” motion over your face.
