It started off cloudy today, which honestly was the deciding factor in my eye shadow choice. Yes, it was that simple. I can get makeup inspiration from anything:)
And don’t think grey shadow is boring or depressing. Oh contraire mon fraire!! Just the opposite, especially for dark brown eyed girls like me. Greys, charcoals, and silvers actually make brown eyes sparkle!
My products + techniques used to create this look were:
1. MAC “blanc type” eye shadow (matte ivory- $14.50) all over the lid.
2. Bobbi Brown “slate” eye shadow (medium matte grey – $20). Used in the crease and along lower lash line. One of my very favorite grey shadows that has a warmness about it, with almost a hint of brown to it. MAC “print” is also another great grey option with a hint of shimmer to it.
3. Wet n Wild H20 Proof liquid liner in color “smokey” (charcoal – $4) along the upper lash line winged out slightly. This stuff rocks my face off – seriously, it doesn’t come off!! I put this liner on at 8:45am this morning, and these pictures were taken around 8pm at night. Awesome staying power.
I also knew that I was going to get my hair color bumped with a little red again today (here’s my blog from the first time I got it switched from black to red) so that also helped brighten my cloudy day!! What girl doesn’t look forward to a little relaxing time in the hair chair??!
Nothing like some complimentary eye shadows and fresh hair color to lift the clouds away!!
What are some great grey shadow colors that have brightened your day before?
