Hi, my name is Brandy Allen, celebrity makeup artist, here at ByBy Studio in Las Angeles and today I'm going to do makeup for a gray eye. So I want to concentrate on the color gray and make this monochromatic. Monochromatic meaning gray eye shadow, gray eyeliner and her gray eyes. I also want to focus on texture. I want to use a shimmery eyeshadow and liner to match her shimmery lips so let's begin. I've already applied a shimmery eyeshadow base. So I'm going to continue to put a gray eyeshadow on top of my base and I'm concentrating on the center of her eyelid to create a pop. By focusing the color on the center of her eyelid, this is bringing the eyelid out and creating some type of dimension. Next, I want to take a mid-tone gray and focus it in her crease and the outer edges her eyelid. To add further depth into the eye I'm going to proceed to use a third dark gray in the same area I placed the mid-tone gray. To avoid this looking like a cat eye, I'm going to take the same brush with the remainder product left on it and blend out the crease. With another clean eyeshadow brush I'm going to take the color that I placed on her eyelid and place it right under the brow. I want to use another gray component and it's this gray eyeliner. It's not too dark. It's a mid-tone eyeliner, just perfect to add a little color to the lash line. And for the last finishing touch I'm going to add mascara and curl the lashes for a little drama. Now I'm going to curl the lash. Depending on how you want the lashes to look, make sure you place the lash curler in the right area of the lashes. So for her eyes, they're already slightly curled, so I want to curl them more at the base. I'm going to make sure I'm at the right location on the lashes, but not too close to the lash line, so right in the center. And there you go, the perfect makeup for gray eyes, a beautiful monochromatic look. I'm Brandy Allen, makeup artist.
