Things you will need to apply Silver Eye Shadow:
- Eye shadow primer
- Eye shadow base
- Eye Pencil
- Eyelashes Curler
- Silver Eye Shadow
- Black Eye Shadow
- Eye Brushes in various sizes
- Blending eye brush
- Foundation Cream – optional

Apply an eye shadow primer
Gently apply an eye shadow primer to your eyelids. Blend it in the area from your lash line to brow bone. You can use a makeup sponge or simply your finger for this purpose
Note: If you do not have an eye shadow primer at home, then you have the option to apply your normal make-up base as well.
Blend an eye shadow base on
Wait for a few seconds until the primer absorbs into your skin and then blend an eye shadow base on. Apply it in the same way you applied the eye shadow primer.
Put eyeliner on lower eyelids
Now, hold your lower eyelid and gently put on eyeliner.
Note: Although you can use colored eyeliner in this step but it is better to use black eyeliner as it goes well with silver eye shadow.
Apply dark eyeshadow to outer crease
Now, if you want to create smoky silver eye look, then apply a black eyeshadow to your outer crease with silver until you get your desired look.
Use white as a highlight
Now, apply a very thin layer of white eye highlighter to enhance your silver eye makeup.
Apply eyeliner right above the top lashes
Grab black eyeliner, hold it firmly, close your eyes and gently apply it right above your top lashes.
Note: Make sure your eyeliner looks thick, but not too chunky. You can use either an eyeliner pencil or cake.
Apply some mascara
Apply at least two coats of mascara to your eyelashes in order to make them larger and well defined.
Note: You can wear artificial eyelashes if you do not have thick eyelashes. Additionally, it is better to curl your eyelashes before the application of mascara.
