When we first got a glimpse at the models in Dior‘s Fall 2014 show (and later at Chanel) strutting down the runway with silver liner on their lids, we knew it would become a trend. Hey, if it’s good enough for Dior, it’s good enough for us, right? And the best part is, you don’t have to be a fan of glitter or metallic to wear it. Silver liner comes in a variety of different shades ranging from white to dark charcoal and from shimmery to matte. So even if you’re not a sparkly kind of gal, that doesn’t mean you can’t try the trend.
Since the Dior show, we’ve been seeing silver liner everywhere, like the streets and clubs of NYC, and on our favorite bloggers like Keiko Lynn and Janine of I’m A Beauty Geek. Even Cara Delevingne wears it regularly, so that means it must be a thing. You just have to know how to wear it.
If you’re daring like the Dior models, try a bold line on your upper lid. It’ll will draw attention to your eyes and make them appear to be bigger, rather than shrink them like bold black liner does. But if you’re more conservative, you can wear silver liner on the corners of your eyes and your lower lash line. It will give your eyes the same widening effect.
