A cool-toned silver outfit is the perfect way to make a glam statement. But as beautiful as silver outfits are, they can be a little tricky to pair your makeup with. This guide is your solution to finding the perfect silver dress makeup look. Keep on reading to find the perfect face, lip and eye makeup for silver dress!
1. Bronzed skin
Adding warmth to your face makeup is the perfect way of balancing the cool tones of your silver outfit! Adding bronzer to your silver dress makeup look adds life back to your face. After blending your foundation and concealer, add some cream contour to your face. Blend it well to add some definition to your face. Now with a fluffy brush sweep some bronzer along your cheekbones and the perimeters of your face. This will give add a hint of sun-kissed colour to your skin! If you don’t want to purchase a separate bronzer, a great hack would be to use a matte brown eyeshadow. Make sure you pick a warm-toned brown eyeshadow to match your skin colour.
For your face makeup to look flawless, it is important to pick the right shade of foundation and concealer. With the Maybelline Fit Me Finder tool and the Maybelline Foundation Finder tool, you can shade match yourself perfectly from the comfort of your home.
2. Autumn’ eyes
Picking the right eyeshadow shade can be tricky while doing your eye makeup for silver dress. Cool-toned shades tend to clash with the outfit and can wash you out. And unless you’re aiming for the early 2000’s frosted eye look, that isn’t the look we’re going for!
Opt for autumnal eye shadow colours like brown, deep purple, plum or even burnt orange. These colours will perfectly complement your makeup for silver dress. If you are attending a nighttime event, you can do a black smokey eye to elevate your silver gown makeup. This will create a beautiful contrast between your deep eye makeup and glittery outfit! We suggest keeping the eye makeup matte, however, if you want to add some glitter you can opt for a rose gold shimmer shade. Avoid using yellow gold shimmer as it will clash with your outfit.
If you are still unsure of what eyeshadow shades to pick, you can use the Maybelline Virtual Try On tool. With this tool, you can virtually try out our wide catalogue of products and buy what you like!
3. Sharp cat eye
There is no better pairing than a sharp cat eye with your autumnal eye makeup for silver dress! A winged eyeliner elevates your eye look and adds drama to it. It frames your face and completes your eye makeup. You can use a deep matte black gel eyeliner to create a precise wing. If you are in the mood to experiment you can create different graphic eyeliner looks as well!
4. Champagne highlight
It's time to add some bling to your silver dress makeup look! After you are done with all your makeup steps, it is time to add some highlighter to seal the deal. When doing your makeup for silver dress, it is better to choose a highlighter shade with champagne or rose gold tones. While a blinding gold highlighter is gorgeous, it might clash with your outfit! A champagne or rose gold highlighter adds the perfect hint of glow to your makeup look. You can use the same highlighter to accentuate the inner corner of your eye. This small step will make your eyes pop and tie the whole look together!
5. Deep lipstick
Your lip makeup can surely make or break your silver dress makeup look! Deeper lip shades with your silver outfits are a match made in heaven. You can opt for a deep red or brown lipstick with silver dress. This will add colour to your pout and make you look picture perfect! If your eye makeup is heavy, you can opt for brown-toned lipstick to balance out the look. However, if you have a simple eye look you can add drama to your look with a deep plum or red lip! These deep shades create a beautiful contrast against the cool aura of your silver outfit.
You can also use the Maybelline Lipstick Finder tool and pick the perfect lipstick shade. This tool picks out lipstick shade options to match the mood and occasion.
