Easy on Grey!

Vimi Joshi, Senior Artist at MAC once quoted in her interview in a renowned fashion magazine, that 'Grey' is the most underrated color out there. This time in her MAC chat she mentioned 'Grey' to be 'it' color for fall to pair with bright cherry red glossy lips for this season. And so here's my inspiration on the color.

I took my favorite Too Faced Sweet Dreams palette and concocted four looks for Winter and this is the first one to go. It is simple and easy to do and great to pair with the above mentioned lips.


  • Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation
  • Shiseido Natural Cream Concealer
  • Clinique Superpowder Double Face Powder
  • Too Faced Sweet Dreams Palette, Chocolate Soleil and Candlelight Glow
  • MAC Mineralize Blush in Gleeful

  • Clinique Long last lipstick in Party Red with an icing of Buttershine lipstick in Parisian Red


  • Too Faced Shadow Insurance all over the lid upto the brow bone and also on the lower lid.
  • I used eyeshadows from Too Faced Sweet Dreams Palette, In the Buff (matte ivory white), Lovey Dovey (Soft taupe brown), Nice Ash (smoldering shimmery grey with blue undertone) and Honeymoon (Ivory shimmer with silver and gold pearl).
  • Dust 'In the buff' over the entire upper lid as a base and also setting the eyeshadow primer.
  • With MAC 219 or Sigma SS219 apply 'Nice Ash' on the outer corners of the upper lid, on crease till the inner corners and lower lid. Blend harsh lines with MAC 234. Its drawing 'stencil' with semi-dark shade.
  • Highlight brow bone and inner corners with 'Honeymoon' and softly dab and blend 'Lovey Dovey' on upper lid diffusing it into the crease.
  • Trace the upper lash line with L'Oreal's Superliner in Carbon Black Gloss to create 70s wing and inner rims of Lower lids with MAC LE eye pencil in Gilded White (for that wide eyed look).
  • Add lashings of Clinique Lash Doubling Mascara to keep eyes soft and sober and let the Lips do the talking. I tamed my brows with MAC Brow Gel.

Its nice to sport this look with LBD or Black Sari or choose stormy colors to compliment the Grey and let Red do stand out.
Hope you like it. Btw this is the first look in the series, so keep reading.

Till then,
