Gray Eye Makeup Looks, Tutorials and Application Tips

A little bit of 60s with Lady Caroline Blackwood was the idea behind the gorgeous gray shadow, lashes and pink lips at Ruffian Spring/Summer ’14. The look, consisting of a dash of pink and gray shadow (March Mist and Particularly Pretty from MAC Spring/Summer 2014 Forecast Eye Palette) along with a dab of peachy lip color (Trendy Twist from MAC Spring/Summer 2014 Forecast Lip Palette), is not only simple but so wearable for spring! And did I mention that super cool minimalistic crescent manicure in nude and purple?

At Derek Lam A/W ’14, Estée Lauder Creative Makeup Director Tom Pecheux paired a strong eye in shades of green and gray with a rosy nude lip. “Derek’s collection is strong, urban, ethnic-inspired with an emphasis on texture. The makeup look is strong, yet fluid, with pools of gray and green surrounding the eye. I was inspired by water, a lagoon, deep and cool.” said Tom.

Using NARS Cosmetics, makeup artist Val Garland created an eye look at Roland Mouret A/W 2013 with a gorgeous side profile shape. “The eyelid is traced with black and clean in the middle, but not too perfect – there’s a greyness to keep it modern. It is literally the way a girl would wear her makeup now to go out, with the lip color dabbed on but not perfectly applied – it’s cooler that way.” said Val.
