Makeup artist Ashima Kapoor gives us easy and quick steps to get the silver shimmery eye look.

To make this a New Year’s eve look, sport a fun curly hairdo and sparkly hair clips. And don’t forget the must have accessory a shining smile.

Steps to get the silver shimmery eye look:
1. Apply silver or grey eyeshadow across the eyelid with an eyeshadow brush. The colour of the eyeshadow should correspond with the eye shimmer colour.
2. Use highlighter on the brow bone under the eyebrows. Blend the highlighter and eyelid shadow with an eyeshadow brush to unify the two steps.
3. Apply silver shimmer on top of the silver eyeshadow. Go bold with a bold silver shade. Shimmer that falls onto the face can be wiped with a cello tape.
4.Apply eyeliner, smoke it with a black eyeshadow, with a pencil brush. To achieve non-clumpy eyelashes, curl the eyelashes and apply mascara in a zigzag motion.

Tools for the look:
Large and small eyeshadow brushes
Silver/grey eyeshadow
Silver shimmer for eyes
Eye highlighter
Mascara and eyelash curler
Black eyeshadow
