If you have grey eyes, congratulations on winning the genetic lottery – people with grey eyes make up only 3% of the population! Prepare for your unique eyes to become your favourite feature when paired with these palettes, that will really make the most of your distinctive colouring.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette
Grey eyes are often actually made up of lots of other colours, such as hazel, green and amber. To stop your eye colour looking ‘flat’, you should aim to enhance these other colours. To bring out the amber in your eyes, reach for oranges and reds in the warm family. The Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette is your one stop shop for everything warm toned; hailed by many beauty gurus as a ‘holy grail’, its blush velvet packaging opens to reveal every possible red, pink and orange you’ll ever need, all in buttery, mega easy to blend matte and shimmer finishes.
Karity Posh Palette
If your grey eyes lean towards a baby blue and you’d like to play on that; mauves, pinks and berries are your new best friend. The Karity Posh Palette is packed with neutrals, pinks and purples in a range of finishes, making this the perfect palette for wearable, every day looks – with a twist.
Jeffree Star Alien Palette
To enhance your eyes and make them appear bigger, applying the same colour scheme on the lid always works wonders. However, when it comes to traditional grey eyeshadow, it’s a fairly universally unflattering shade – it makes eyes appear crepe-y, small and tired. Not cute! Instead, opt for iced-out whites, silvers, platinums, and deep charcoals to make your peepers pop. We suggest the Jeffree Star Alien Palette, the cool toned, icy silvers and blues will bring the blue right out. Plus, have you seen the packaging?!
BEAUTY BAY Going Out Out 42 Shade Palette
Not quite ready to commit to one thing, and want to experiment with everything that suits you? We can relate. The BEAUTY BAY Going Out Out 42 Shadow Palette has – yep – 42 shades for you to play with. Encompassing every colour that looks fabulous on grey eyes, ranging from blues, greens and purples all the way up to warm oranges and soft reds, this palette literally has it all. So, you can try it all; no commitment required.
Stila Magnificent Metals Shimmer & Glow Eyeshadow
A classic neutral brown look adds dimension to grey eyes, but you want to avoid laying two ‘flat’ colours next to each other. Instead of using classic matte shadows, switch your routine up and try a cream product with a pearlescent or glitter finish, to add intrigue to the eyes. We highly recommend the Stila Magnificent Metals Shimmer & Glow Eyeshadow in Twig or Grace – the cream-to-powder formula is easy to apply, quick drying, and the glittery pigment payoff is insane.
ZOEVA Rose Golden Palette
Take inspo from your current copper and marble homeware obsession and apply it to your shadows; rose golds look absolutely gorgeous when paired with grey eyes. The ZOEVA Rose Golden Palette has every shade you need for a sparkling copper eye, with matte shadows muted enough for daily wear, and dramatic glitters for a full-glam look.
