Silver Glitter Eyeshadow Makeup Looks To Try


Silver Glitter Eyeshadow Makeup Looks To Try

Posted by LiveGlam on Mar 11, 2022

As soon as you swatch the shade ‘Opal’ in the You’re a Gem palette you’ll feel your inner 90s child awakening. Silver glitter is welcome any season, any time, whether it’s a teeny sprinkle or a full-coverage slab of glitz. 

Here are our new favorite silver eyeshadow looks to try. 

Silver Streak down the Center of the Lid

Remember when Kim Kardashian went to the Met Gala in that latex “wet dress”? Well, it was her eyes I was mesmerized by that day. She had a sheeny, glittery shadow down the center of her lids that gave the impression of sun glinting on water. 

You can recreate this look easily! Buff a bronzer or chocolate-brown shadow through the crease and into the lower lashes. Take silver glitter on a small brush and press onto the center of the lid, creating a slightly diagonal line toward the outer of the eye.

Silvery-Blue Ocean Eyes

Silver and blue are an icy-cool match made in eyeshadow heaven. The shade Kyanite is a bright, almost-turquoise blue with teeny silver glitters throughout. I use this shade along with Opal and Sapphire (shimmery navy) to create an ocean-inspired eye look.

Buff Sapphire into the crease and through the lower lashline. Tap Kyanite onto the centre of the lid and carry it down through to the middle of the lower lashline. Tap Opal into the inner third of the eyes until it’s as opaque as you can get it. Add mascara abd skip the lashes for a more natural look. Use a clean brush to smooth the edges and finish the face with a glowy bronzer and wet-look gold highlight.

Tip: navy and blue shadow can be tough to cover if it happens to fall onto your cheeks. For easy clean-up, do your eyes first and base second. 

Silver and Black Smoky Eyes (Cheat’s Version)

Back in the 2000’s and 2010’s, the epitome of school prom glam was a black smoky eye with silvery-white accents. I was the go-to gal for doing my friend’s makeup and I would bust out my black Lancome single eyeshadow and tiny pot of Clinique loose glitter so proudly. 

Here in 2022 I am far less patient so I require an easier black smoky eye, thanks very much. Here’s how I do it: 

  • Start with the eyes first (an easy clean-up after any rogue glitter)
  • Take a black kohl eyeliner and draw a generous line along the upper and lower lash lines (do one eye at a time to avoid premature setting)
  • Take a stubby brush and smudge the liner so that it creates a hazy, smokey, lived-in look
  • Take a black, charcoal, or even deep grey or navy shadow and buff it over your smudged liner and up toward the crease 
  • Take your silver glitter on your ring finger and tap it onto the center of the lid
  • Finish the eyes with an overkill of mascara!
