Although it may seem like a shade you grab only for special occasions, silver eyeliner is surprisingly useful to have in your beauty kit. It’s not just for special occasions. Worn alone or with a full glam, a swipe of metallic always looks fresh and new. You don’t have to have makeup artist-level skills, either. We promise. These smudge-proof liners go on easily and blend out beautifully if you so choose.

Switch up your usual black eyeliner (as much as we love it!) and try your same thin line or bold wing with silver instead. It’ll be sure to make an impact. Silver also looks incredible next to other colors for a sort of duo-hue look. Against black, it screams party-ready and next to blues and greens, it’s pretty for any time of day. There’s really no way to mess it up.

Choose Wunder2’s waterproof pencil liner for an ultra-rich, pigmented metallic shade that goes on like a cream and dries down. Or go for Revlon’s liquid eyeliner if you’re a fan of precise, sharp lines. Finally, we love Maybelline New York’s gel pencil for its long-wearing (up to 36 hours!) properties.
