Hi, I'm Erin Hendley, professional makeup artist, and today I'm going to show you what eye shadow works well with a grey sweater. We really only need our palette right here with a brush and a grey sweater is pretty much a neutral color. So with neutrals, you can play with neutrals on your eyes or you can actually oomph it up a little because it's not competing with the outfit. So what we're going to do is have a little fun with our eye makeup and use some shimmery colors. Normally I recommend mattes because it's not competing with any kind of bright color you might be wearing but we can opt for shimmers when we're wearing a very simple color such as our grey sweater. So what I'm going to do is go in with just a shimmer color. This is just going to be a shimmery pretty eye. And we are going to dust it on the bulb of the eye. Now these are eye shadows, they're not pigments, so they give you just the right amount of sparkle without being too shiny. So these can be worn during the day or at night. And again you can layer these if you want more shimmer. It's always nice to go underneath the brow bone. Just to highlight those high points of the face. So now we just need to go in with a complementary color. And I say it's always fun to dust a little bit of coppers in to the crease. This is a great holiday look as well. And now we just work it on the outer edges of the eyes. And we think about what color wants to work well with a grey sweater. It is about the color, and it is about the texture. The shimmer really complements it because it is an opposite. And staying on the outer corner is going to keep it sophisticated because out sweater is sophisticated. And always remember to blend the edges. That's going to give you the best eye effect. And the shimmer pulls from the grey and it looks great day or night. I'm Erin Hendley, and I just showed you the eye shadows that work well with a grey sweater.
