I was very hesitant at first to try grey because I was told how it won’t look great on my deep warm skin tone. But hey, there’s no harm in giving something a try, right? So, I did a test one day. I used the grey e/s on my scheduled job offer. Yes, I got the job I applied for in my recent office OOTD! Then, I did the grey e/s another try the next day, on our Alumni Homecoming and another try the next -- our Sunday Service and again another, a day after that -- my dinner date with friends. I sure enjoyed the supposed-to- be trials that ended up as new EOTDs. J
Will be showing off some of the photos I took while doing the “trials”. Please let me know me if I was able to pull off the grey e/s pretty well, okay?
By the way, there are so many shades of grey, so I chose to use the less shimmery and less frosty ones. I chose mid-tone grays and two darker shades for the outer-V for my medium warm skin tone. I also used white for highlighting the inner corners and the brow bones.
Lighter Grey EOTD
What I used:
I think this lighter shade doesn't work great on me but the mid-tones did though! :D
Midtone Grey EOTD
What I used:
I used Ellana's Dream for Highlighting because I find it easier to blend on my skin.
I would therefore conclude that grey colors can be pulled off by morena women, we just have to choose the shade that's nearest our skin color, mid-tone for medium skin tones that is.
- Don't use super shimmery greys if you're morena. Shimmers won't work great on our skin.
- Choose MID-TONE greys
- Blend and contour the grey with browns to make the color blend well with your skin
If you're also morena, what eye shade do you dread the most? Why not give it a try and show us if it also works on our sun-kissed and naturally tan skin?
