Physician’s Formula Organic Wear Precision Liquid Eyeliner can help create thin and thick lines depending on the angle you hold the brush.
Yes to Pink
Wearing pink and nude tones on eyes, cheeks, and lips can elevate your makeup look ever-so-slightly while still remaining natural. Incorporating consistent, similar tones in your makeup is an easy way to keep things cohesive if you’re someone who tends to shy away from wearing bolder colors. Lumene Invisible Watercolor Blush has buildable color you can add to your cheeks for a flushed look.
Bold and Bright
Bold and bright lips paired with minimal eye makeup show that the smallest bit of color is a powerful tool that takes your look to the next level while wearing a black dress. These red lips seriously set the tone for all the right kinds of drama.
Create an abstract feel with your winged eyeliner by pairing it with nude lipstick when wearing a black dress, especially if you’re someone who likes to keep the drama only on the eyes. Be sure to trace out your wing on each eye before filling it in to ensure the shapes match.
what makeup goes with a silver dress
- 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.
- 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!
- 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!
- 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!
- 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.
