Metallic Silver Eyes

Simple yet eye-catching, eyelids dusted with metallic silver shadow, paired with inky black, elevated lashes, instantly illuminate your entire look. Here’s how to get it.

Step 1: Prep and prime lids.
Apply Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer (it’s ophthalmologist tested) all over your eyelids to create a neutral base, cancelling out any redness, so the metallic grey eye shadow really pops.

Step 2: Greys for days.
Use a fluffy eye shadow brush to sweep All About Shadow in Silver Lining, a shimmery metallic silver, all over lids from the lashline up to the crease. The subtle iridescence adds light-catching dimension and shine, without any stickiness or creasing. FYI, this silky-soft powder stays put for 8 hours.


Step 3: Elevate your lashes.
Pile on several coats of High Impact Lash Elevating Mascara, a mousse-like formula that instantly lifts and curls lashes. For extra oomph, wiggle the wand back and forth into the roots of lashes, then swoop it up towards lash tips to separate and lengthen.

Step 4: Warm up your skintone.
Keep the rest of your makeup minimal with a palette of light neutrals. Sweep Cheek Pop in Nude Pop across cheekbones, then dab Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in Heaping Hazelnut, a your-lips-but-better nude, onto lips.
