Eye Look of the Week | Silver & Navy Glam

Hello everyone! How have you been this December? Things are so crazy and busy these days, I almost can’t wait for it to all be over, or at least for Christmas to be here so I can at least have a day to relax. Despite the busyness, I hope you are all making time to see family and friends!

If you don’t already know, Cleia from Always Cleia and I are hosting a beauty challenge on instagram called the 12 Days of Instagramas. For this challenge, one of the prompts is blue & silver, and I knew from the beginning I wanted to create an eye look for that prompt. During the holidays I’m usually more drawn to classic Christmas colours when doing a glam eye look, but blue and silver can be equally as festive I think.

For this eye look I didn’t use any one palette, and I think for the most part it doesn’t even matter which products I used. You can very likely create this look with any similar shades that you might have in your collection!

I created this look using the reverse blending method with my eyeshadow primer left tacky. I like to use the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer as my primer.

  1. I first applied an indigo blue matte (“Chris” from the Sephora PRO Editorial Eyeshadow Palette) to the lowest parts of the outer corner with a Hakuhodo J146. I mainly packed on this shade, with very little blending.
  2. I then blended out the upper edges with a lighter grey/taupe (“Trending Now” from the Stilazzi Stellar Eyeshadow Palette) with a Hakuhodo B142.
  3. I then deepened the outer corner and crease with a black matte (“Smoked Out” from the Stilazzi Stellar Eyeshadow Palette) to make the indigo more of a navy shade with a Hakuhodo J146.
  4. After cutting the crease with a white concealer, I applied a silver metallic to the lid (“Glamrock” from the Urban Decay Heavy Metals Metallic Eyeshadow Palette).
  5. To add an extra sparkle, I then layered a glittery silver liquid eyeshadow over the silver metallic shadow and added it to the inner corner (Stila Glitter & Glow “Diamond Dust”).
  6. Lastly, I smoked out the lower lash line with the same matte shadows: the grey on the whole lash line and the navy and black on the outer part.

To finish off the look I applied the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in “Black Bean” to the waterline and applied the Ardell Faux Mink 811 lashes.

Overall, I am totally in love with how this look turned out! I haven’t played with any blue eyeshadows since my total obsession this summer, and this look turned out so pretty and was actual semi-wearable. Dramatic but still festive for the holidays!

What are your favourite eyeshadow shades for a festive look? Do you prefer more glam eyes or a bold lip?

    1. Thanks so much! I think I did silver for Christmas Eve last year! The stila glitter shadow isn’t something I usually use so it was fun to pull out for once!

      1. The shimmer and glow value set at Sephora right now looks pretty good. Out of that kit I only own Cloud and it’s pretty. It’s described as a lilac with gold reflect, but it’s really quite light and comes off as a cooler light metallic. The purple isn’t so extreme or obvious. My favourite shimmer and glow shades are Jezebel (rose gold) and la douce (olive green). I have the glitter and glow mini kit from last year and I really don’t use it often except in circumstances like these, but they are all really pretty (diamond dust, Kitten karma and smouldering satin I think).
