Grey eyes are specific to mysterious people who always tend towards something new. The monotony and uniformity are qualities that do not characterize them. Gray eyes can change their color depending on the current mood of the owner, of the clothing color and lighting.

An extraordinarily beautiful gray can be found in many women. It is this color that gives the fair sex delicacy, finesse and mystery. Gray eyes are not as romantic as the blue eyes, not as attractive and mysterious as green eyes, nor so bright and shrill as the brown. However, any color from those mentioned above can not be compared with the fine and delicate gray of gray eyes.

Mistakes that can spoil a makeup for gray eyes

Make-up artists call this one a universal color although there are some restrictions.

1. Avoid a very intense makeup because it will distract the attention from the natural color of the eyes and the look will become inexpressive.
2. Young ladies with gray eyes should definitely not choose a makeup in shades of brown, orange and terracotta. These colors will not accentuate the eye color, but the eyelids. In addition, these shades in combination with gray eyes will make the gaze look tired and like you just cried.
3. Do not apply in any case in gray eye makeup the black eyeliner in the lower and outer eyelash growth. Often, without noticing it, some girls get the opposite result: instead of eyes to be more marked and expressive, they become very small. If you still want to make an outline of the eyes, then choose dark gray, blue or brown shades.
4. Don’t choose a makeup that will mimic the natural color of the iris, as the eyes will become faded and lose their expressiveness.

Day makeup for gray eyes

The gray color of the eyes is very cool because a girl with such eyes can use in the day makeup a pretty intense color palette that is not allowed for example for girls with hazel eyes. The only important thing we should not forget about is that in a day makeup we should never use eyeshadows in a shade with the iris of the eyes, because this way the gray eyes will simply get lost on the background of two gray spots. For a day makeup use shades of beige, silver and sand, and a mascara and a black pencil can give the eyes a very beautiful blue shade.

Choosing the eyeshadows for gray eyes depending on the color of female personality

If a girl considers having a winter personality, then we recommend her a makeup in shades of brown, green, purple and dark blue. By applying makeup in shades of brown, you can get a more expressive and beautiful gaze. If you decide to use purple or green shades, then do not focus on the lips or do not use a blush in contrasting shades. If you do not want to focus only on the eyes, then choose eyeshadows in blue-gray or pearly colors. Natural shades of gray eyes will allow ladies to focus on the rest of the face, while emphasizing the natural eye colors. For this option, experts recommend the use of pastel shades of pink, beige, light brown. Remember that ladies with ice gray eyes categorically are prohibited to use light shades and very intense and juicy colors.
