If you love a sparkly eyeshadow but have yet to find a formula that feels fresh this party season, we've got you covered!
Even if you haven't seen the tv sensation that is Euphoria, chances are you've seen stills from the show all over Instagram. Bold, colourful and unique, Zendya and crews's characters were rarely seen without their graphic liners and glittery eye looks – sure, not exactly subtle, but the show's philosophy on makeup reminded us all there is to love about the stuff.
And we have Makeup Artist Doniella Davy to thank for the mesmerizing beauty moments dreamed up for the TV teens: bold color, shimmering gold tears, and rhinestone eyebrows, just a few of the styles that keep us glued to the screen.
While the debut season's signature beauty looks certainly challenged makeup norms for Gen Zers, for a more grown-up take on chunky glitter, we enlisted the help of makeup artist Ailbhe Lynch to create the perfect metallic eye – all with MAC products, shoppable at Arnotts Beauty Hall!
Euphoria, but chicer! At our beauty party, silver always scoops first place!
“The MAC Dazzleshadow applicator allows for a block of pigment like I’ve done here, but can also be used for a finer line. If you want to switch focus to the lip but still go with a silver eye, a more subtle flick would work too.”

“When it comes to skin, you can go with the eye and make it dewy, glossy and even glass-like, or you can contrast completely and opt for a matte skin texture. Avoid too much blush as it will pull focus.”

“Keep the look fresh and youthful with a brushed-up, softly-filled brow. Avoid over-filling as this can date the look, and the block of silver on the eye is inherently modern.”

"I love this lipstick shade, it’s called Modesty and is the perfect pinky nude. Keep the lip creamy, pared-back and subtle when the eye statement is so strong.”

Now you've got what it takes to create the perfect metallic eye, it's time to focus on the base. Makeup trends are fleeting, but a glowy complexion will always be on-trend—and, highlighter should be your secret weapon of choice for faking that ethereal, lit-from-within glow.
Below, Ailbhe Lynch shares her top tips on how to get a model-worthy glow with makeup.
