Makeup for Gray Eyes

Saturday, 10 July 2010

makeup for gray eyesGray eyes are common, but they are far from ordinary. Despite the fact that gray color is sometimes called inexpressive and unremarkable, gray eyes are not as simple as they seem at first glance. Gray eyes are sort of natural «chameleons», as they often change color depending on the lighting. Blue eyes can also look gray at times. Women wanting to play to that unusual color should use eye make-up that will accent the natural tones within their eyes. Gray/blue eyes will look best in one set of colors while gray/green eyes will likely look better in something else altogether. Sometimes it is advisable to play around with a few colors to determine which ones deliver the specific effect desired.

However, notwithstanding the variety of makeup options available for gray eyes, they can be tricky to accentuate with one specific color as bright hues can either «kill» the grayness, making your eyes look empty and expressionless, or make them look gloomy and dull.

According to the well known classification, gray eyes should be classified as cold and therefore require cold shadow palette, however, as practice shows, gray eyes with a slight greenish hue can be easily classified as warm, and thus require warm shadow palette.

As a universal rule, those with blue grey eyes should look for eye makeup in gray, violet, taupe, purple, and deep blue. Many have felt using a dark shade of blue will actually bring out the more natural blue tones in your eyes; giving you a brighter and more vivacious look.

Choose eye shadow colors that aren't too dark for day and go a bit more vibrant at night or add a bit of glitter or gleam into the mix to really make them pop. Apply the darkest shade of the shadow closest to the lashes, smudging it in as closely as possible to the lash line. Use a lighter shade above that, blending it out to almost nothing at the crease. For nighttime, opt for deeper, richer colors overall, using basically the same technique.

If you are looking for an edgier or more dramatic evening out look, mixing black liner with a bright blue will give you a classic smoky impression. You can also throw in some silver, fuchsia, or turquoise if you are going out and want a funky nighttime feel.

Play up the blue tones in gray eyes with light to medium shades of blue eye shadow for day. Then go darker and bolder at night or add a touch of glitter or gleam like the jewel lapis lazuli. Try lining the eye with navy or midnight blue liner.

Bring out the green tones in gray eyes with green shadow choices. Line the eye in a soft grass green for day and a deep forest green for night. Don't hesitate to add a bit of emerald glitter for a very dramatic nighttime effect.

Try brown tones to complement the gray color. Choose tones that range from light cocoa, for day, to deepest chocolate, for night. Just keep the lighter tones for daytime and save the deeper, richer tones for night. Don't forget about golden metallics in antique gold, bronze and copper. Combine them with brown shades or wear them on their own for nighttime "come hither" eyes. Choose deep chocolate, brown/black, or even rich metallic eyeliners for a perfect accent.

Make gray eyes smolder with burgundy and purple shadows. These colors should play up the gray in a bold, refreshing way. Choose softer mauve burgundy and lighter violets for daytime and save the deep eggplant burgundy and plums for night. For a jazzed up dramatic effect, try three shades of the same color. Apply the deepest shade at the lash line, the lightest shade just above that, and a medium shade inside the eye crease. The retro effect achieved will be dramatic to say the least.Apply deep burgundy and/or plum eyeliners or stick with natural brown or black, depending upon how bold a look is desired. Either way, keep the lines soft and smudged for daytime and bold and catty for night.

Violets and lavenders are most suggested for those having a combination of gray and blonde hair. Since a light purple is the most flattering for almost all blondes who tend to have fairer skin than those with darker hair.

You can use violet on the creases of your eyelids as well as on the lid in general. Lighter lavender above the crease will give you a more spectacular look for evenings. More neutral colors are ideal for daytime, but it's always fun to wear purple no matter what the time or time of year.

For those endowed with naturally red hair, brown shades will tend to work better on your gray eyes. Since your hair is already such a vivacious color, your skin tone and eyes will call for a more natural looking shadow.

Tans and browns can flatter the shape and shade of your eyes without overwhelming your hair or other features. In the evenings, adding a gold shimmer is a great finishing touch for those with beautiful, fiery hair and contrasting gray eyes.
