Hi, my name is Brandy Allen, celebrity makeup artist here at ByBy Studio in Las Angeles and today I'm going to teach how to do a perfect makeup for a blue-gray eye. Today I'm going to use a quad eyeshadow with a pretty ambery gold and a yellow gold right on the eyelid and I'm also going to use a honeyless color on the cheek to create the perfect makeup for a blue-gray eye. I'm going to go ahead and mix the orange gold color with the light yellow color right on the eyelid. We want to keep the color controlled under the crease and then blend upward. When blending upward this is giving a wash of color on the eyelid. With the color already directed in the crease, this is creating a natural highlight but I want to enhance this highlight with this light color. Now that's an easy eye look with only three colors on the lid and underneath the brow. I'm going to take the blue eyeliner and line her eye on the bottom. This blue liner is making this look fun and creating a dual chromatic effect. And if you want to go more dramatic, you can add a little blue right in the outer corners. By adding this color on the corners it's creating a slight wing but more dimension. Take your smudging brush and just smudge lightly. Smudging too much might remove the color. Last but not least, we're going to take our dramatic mascara, falsies and to set this look go back with your light color in the quad and place it right under the eyeshadow. This sets the eyeshadow and gives this a slight shimmer. To complement the eyes, I'm going to use a honey colored blush on the apples of her cheeks and there you have it, a beautiful makeup for blue-gray eyes.
