Grey: The New Neutral

Summer called for warm, sparkling makeup shades of bronze, sepia and gold but as temps drop and winter draws closer, is it time to rework your go-to face?

Cooler toned shades of gunmetal grey and icy silvers are making a comeback as makeup kit regulars this season with designers sending models down the runway in the casual, understated eye hues.



In Milan, Etro girls walked with eye colours of creamy silver mixed with hints of black for a chic steely grey finish that works as a classic hue to set against a pretty much every other fashion colour you may need to throw on, making it the new goes-with-anything shade to keep on your makeup dresser.



Over in London, Matthew Williamson makeup artist Lisa Eldridge mixed up a warm grey shade with a chocolate brown shade to create an ‘Instagram filter’ fresh effect on the eye.  Insta-cool!



This trend works best when paired with clashing prints and wintery textures, as seen at Peter Pilotto where a stormy grey eye anchored the designer’s vivid pieces.   Try switching in a cool, silvery toned liquid cheek highlighter instead of rosy pink blushes to complement the icy-cool effect of the look.
