Blues and Greys Using MAC Tone: Grey Eyeshadow Quad



Here's a look featuring MAC Trend F/W '09 collection's Tone: Grey quad. I am liking the combination of grey and blue because it's a breath of fresh air amidst the proliferation of many grey and black eye looks. The blue gives a new look to the greys, making a more vibrant overall appearance.


I used the DSquared greasepaint stick in "B" to prime the outer V of my eye and the lower lashline.


I used Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow/Liner in Skinny Jeans to prime the lid for the grey shadows.


I used Silverthorn eyeshadow from MAC A Rose Romance collection together with the shadows in the Tone:Grey quad.


I used L'oreal's Lineur Intense liquid liner which is quickly becoming a favorite for everyday use.




I used On A Mission beauty powder blush from Style Warrior with Sculpt powder to contour.


I used Nico Now lipglass.

Here's a step-by-step. All eye products MAC unless otherwise stated.


Apply Bare Canvas paint all over lid and browbone. Apply Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow/Liner in Skinny Jeans on lid using a fluffy brush. Using the 239 brush, Tone Grey lightly on the lid to even the color. Apply B Greasepaint stick on the outer lid.


Intensify B Greasepaint stick on the outer V.


Using the 239 brush, apply Silverthorn on outer 2/3 of lid. Using the Sonia Kashuk blender brush, apply Tone Grey on mid to outer lid.




Apply The Right Smoke on the crease and outer V using the Sonia Kashuk blender brush. Add Waft using the same brush and in gentle but quick one-direction sweeps, blend the colors together.


Using the Stila No. 5 brush, apply A Warmer White on the browbone. Using the 219 brush, apply Vanilla pigment on the tearducts/inner corners. Apply L'oreal Lineur Intense liner on upper lashline. Apply B greasepaint stick on lower lashline.


Using the 219 brush, apply The Right Smoke on lower lashline over the greasepaint stick.

Phyrra- thanks! Knowing your makeup style, I'm pretty sure you will love the greasepaint sticks!

Askmewhats- thanks sis! I really like the color combination too. :)

Jellyminx- I would recommend the greasepaints too, but I've never tried them without a primer underneath, so you might want to prime your lids first before using them. :)

gio- thanks for the sweet words, as always! :)
