Silver and Gold Eye Shadow Tutorial

Get Emily Blunt's Fascinating Wolfman Makeup Look

Emily Blunt looked ravishing last night at the LA premiere of her new movie, The Wolfman. She had an elegant but attention-catching pheasant feather fascinator in her hair and complemented it with gorgeous silver and gold eye makeup. It's a combination that will work beautifully with most skin tones and eye colors. So if you're interested in getting Emily's precious metal eyes too, just keep reading.


  • Begin by waterlining your eyes with a waterproof black liner. Then, apply a primer on your upper lids and right below your lower lash line (you'll be putting powdery liner there, and you don't want raccoon eyes). If you like a shadow base to make your colors pop more, sweep a nude shadow across the entire upper lid.
  • In the inner corners of your eye and on the first third of your upper lid, use a small shadow brush or sponge applicator to apply a gold shadow from lash line to crease. On the centers of your lids, apply a chunky metallic silver shadow. And at the outer corner of your eyes, apply a classic smoky gray. To see the colors I'm talking about, just look at the widget below.
  • Lightly blend all three, pulling the colors up above the crease for a light wash of smoky sparkles. Put several generous coats of mascara on your upper lashes, then wet a liner brush or pointed tipped applicator and use your smoky gray shadow to line your lower lash line.

Lips and cheeks:

  • Apply a rose pink blush to the apples of your cheeks.
  • Fill your lips in with a light pink liner, then go over them with a candyfloss-colored lip gloss.
