Though it's only the first month of 2023, celebrities and influencers alike have already left in their trail. A barrage of head-swivelling above-the-neck aesthetics — many of which are swiftly catapulting into trends. The display features a well-balanced assortment of clean-girl and maximalist aesthetics — with both categories adding to their collections a cornucopia of silver-drenched inner-corners, brow-bones, and lids.
While some of these looks flourish on silver-tipped waterlines, others enlist the expertise of the colour for full-throttle aesthetics. Here are some of the finest iterations of silver eye makeup looks along with the coolest line-up of products to recreate them with. Check it out!
It’s time to elevate your look. You’re going to want to experiment with these looks STAT!
Divorce the conventionality of a jet-black flick for something star-studded. This loved-up affair with silver is all sorts of enchanting. Just draw a cat-eye flick on either eye, and you’re done. Do ensure that the flick is thin and sharp — so as to capture aesthetic better.
Use: Manish Malhotra Beauty By MyGlamm 9 In 1 Eyeshadow Palette — Reverie
Compact Eyeshadow Palette with 9 shades in Matte, Metallic & Foil Finishes
This palette displays high quality pigment-rich colours — amongst which is sandwiched a glitter-studded silver that glistens and gleams boldly. It’s blends into the lids like butter, and it's oh-so-buildable.
Have you run out of inspiration? If the basic cat-eye flick is not doing it for you anymore, elevate your aesthetic like this. While most flicks are positioned upward toward the eyebrow or forehead, this one slopes downward. Proceed to line the (lower) waterline with the colour — and once you’ve reached the outer-corners, join the two flicks while leaving some space in between. Make sure you also outline the ‘v’ of the inner-corners for effect.
Use: POPxo 12 Eyeshadow Kit — Vibe Check
This Vitamin E-enriched eyeshadow kit contains both shimmers and mattes — and amongst the former is a shade of silver that’s just like the one employed in this look. Add to cart ASAP!
You’re more of a minimalist? Don’t worry. Just line your lid with a flick of silver. This one’s a masterclass in the lazy-girl aesthetic.
This all-over silver is a high-glam look that you can enlist for your night-outs. You can prime your eyes before diving into the process. To capture the glazed, dewy-dumpling effect, layer your eyes with some lip-gloss before reaching out for some silver from your palette. Transfer some of the product onto a finely-tipped brush and dab it onto the lids. Make sure you’re going all over the crease and under-eye in the process. Highlight the inner-corners too. This is such a cool glitter silver eye makeup look!
Use: POPxo Eyeshadow — Send Noods
This four-eyeshadow palette features two shades of pink that you can set the base of your eyes with. While one is studded with shimmer, the other is matte. Mix and match!
Set the base of the eyes with a heavy-handed flick of silver, and frame your lids with a classic cat-eye wing as shown in this picture. Though there’s a contrast between the two colours, they compliment each other effortlessly. Notice how the wings are razor-thin and sharp. If you want to add some colour to the eyes, you can paint the brow-bone pink.
Use: MyGlamm Manish Malhotra Beauty Glitter Eyeliner — Black Moon
If you like eyeliners that are black and shiny, get Black Moon now. It's intense yet angelic. And one swipe endows your lids with colour. No kidding.
You can frame your eyeshadow with a wing like this and add some rhinestones to the inner-corners and outer-corners of the lids with some lash-glue. That’s it!
This eyeliner boasts a creamy, blendable texture that glides onto the lids seamlessly. It has a semi-matte-finish and is budge-proof, smudge-resistant, and long-lasting.
This simple swish of silver finds a balance between drama and minimalism. Even though the silver glitter eyeliner pops, it does so subtly. All you have to do is outline your upper-crease before joining the flick to the corner of your eye like a wing. Negative space is in, and this is your sign to jump in on the bandwagon.
Use: MyGlamm Twist It Up Mascara — Black
This mascara is anything but ordinary. It can curl and voluminise and it comes with a brush that fits every eye shape ever.
Though this look is centred around wings and flicks, it’s a little different than the ones listed before. Just set the base of your eyes with a tinge of pink before going in with a silver cat-eye flick. The next step involves framing each wing with jet-black eyeliner. While this requires some precision on your end, the end-result is so glamorous!
Use: MyGlamm LIT Glossy Liquid Eyeliner — Black Party

Use: MyGlamm LIT Brow Definer Pencil - Shook
