Natural makeup: Is silver the new black?

Natural makeup: Is silver the new black?
Posted by Tony Milner

If you're a fan of the smoky eye look (who isn't?) then you might be aware that it is still set to be on trend come autumn, but as the weather makes the change, black natural makeup can be a bit too heavy. 

According to Stylist, silver is the perfect shade as an alternative to black and during the A/W shows, grey was everywhere. 

One edgy way of incorporating the shade into your natural makeup palette is go for silver on the lid and to leave the rest of the eye bare – no liner or mascara – which will then draw attention to your peepers. 

Christian Dior's national make-up artist, Jamie Coombes, said: 'Apply shadow with a moist brush as this creates a brilliant intensity and gives a fantastic finish'.


If you fancy a more colourful autumn, then incorporate shades such as tawny reds and olive greens into your smoky eye too.
