With the likings of Kira Kira and a major disco revival — silver makeup is making a comeback. Probably one of the most versatile metallics to exist, silver makeup is best worn with a lot of complementary neutrals. Ahead, find our silver makeup picks for this coming winter, and we challenge you to wear them separately, or even better — all together.

Urban Decay 24/7 Eye Pencil in Cuff

For a great silver liner accent, Urban Decay 24/7 in Cuff is perfect for the lower lash line or waterline for a little extra sparkle. Pro tip: Pair a silver shadow over top for some extra chromatic pow.


NYX Professional Makeup Face + Body Glitter in Silver

You simply can’t do a silver metallic right without glitter. Foil this onto your lid for a super sparkly shadow, or tap it onto the center of your lips overtop a holiday lip color for an unexpected spark.


YSL Full Metal Shadow in Grey Splash

YSL Full Metal Shadow is the perfect silver base to pop on your lids before applying a shadow overtop. Even better, tap a little bit on your cheekbones to highlight your high points disco-style.


Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Liner in Glamrock

Glamrock is as sparkly as its name suggests — this silver liner looks perfect on the inner corners or lower lash line for a night out.


L’Oréal Infallible Paints Metallic Eyeshadow in Aluminum Foil

Another versatile silver metallic definitely has to be the L’Oréal Infallible Paint in Aluminum Foil. A little of this product goes a long way — pop it onto your eyes, lips or cheekbones to change up your usual highlight.
