Don’t miss this | Get the Look: Greyscale smokey eyes

This week’s She Said Beauty look was a really basic one — greyscale smokey eyes, as a bit of a change-up from the traditional Summer smokey eye. (Read: brights, brights, and more brights.)

I wasn’t totally crazy about this look in the end, and I think that’s just because I wasn’t crazy about the products involved. A lot of them were [boring] basics, and the others weren’t really anything to write home about, which left me kind of… underwhelmed.

Read the tutorial for the look here, or keep going for more photos.

    You may not have been crazy about the look, but I think it's GORGEOUS! I like that you smudged it perfectly and didn't go too dark with it. It fits the shape of you eye and really looks natural but still glam

    Huh, that's funny, because I think this looks really wonderful, Rae – subdued but in a lovely way! I rarely wear grey shadow but when I do I always love how it looks with my brown eyes (case in point here!). If the products were blah, you certainly hid it well :)
