This month my Two Dashes of Glam partner Natasja and I challenged each other to create a make-up look featuring our least favorite make-up color. Check it out!
My Gray Smokey Eyes
I frequently incorporate gray in my outfits, I often sport gray on my nails and when it comes to home decoration I think gray is a lovely color. So I’m not a graycist. Yay for gray! Gray all the way! Gray is great! Except when we?re talking make-up. In make-up gray is just so… blah. The color just feels really bland and boring and lifeless to me. I mean, where?s the fun" Where?s the excitement"
? Morphe 12S Soul of Summer Palette ?
Today however I?m getting over my aversion for gray with an all-gray smokey eye featuring the gray shade from my Morphe 12S Soul of Summer Palette and a dark matte gray from the e.l.f. Everyday Smoky Eyeshadow Palette.
? e.l.f. Everyday Smoky Eyeshadow Palette (third last shade) ?
I simply applied the shimmery silver gray from the Morphe palette all over my eyelid and then blended the matte gray in my outer eye corners and crease and against my lash line for an all-gray smokey look.
Since I didn?t want to add any colors to the look that could potentially overwhelm the gray I decided to only do a subtle white highlight in my inner eye corners and use simple black eyeliner and mascara to complete the eyes.
And I also kept my lip color and blush very subtle with just a bit of the Urban Decay Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Blush in Indecent on the cheeks and the Bobbi Brown Lip Gloss in Buff on the lips.
