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

Friday, June 29, 2012

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.

Products Used

Eyes: Sephora Collection Smoky Kohl Eyeliner in Grey, Imju Fiberwig Extra Long Mascara in Black, MAC Eye Shadow in Blanc Type (Matte2), FaceFront Cosmetics Pressed Eye Shadow in Greyscale and Fate by Chance, MAC Pigment in Fairylite (LE, try Naked as a dupe).

Lips: GOSH Velvet Touch Lipstick in Darling

Cheeks: MAC Powder Blush in Harmony (Matte)

    It is like grey ombre for your eyes. Lovely!

  2. Exactly! Glad you like the look — thank you! :)

  3. The smolder is so effortless. Love it.

  4. Aww, thanks Julie! <3

  5. 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 :)

  10. Haha, thank you! ;o) I'm really glad you liked the look — that seems to be the consensus around here, so maybe I'm just being neurotic :p I'm still not really jazzed about the full-face shots, but I was pretty happy with how the eye shots turned out!
