Makeup of the day: gray everyday look

Hey everyday!
So I am doing the new format for my makeup of the day posts just like my last one. To see that click here. So let's get started.

 So to start this look I put NYX jumbo eye pencil in "milk" all over my lid and blended it out with my finger. You can use any type of primer you would like!

Then I applied a shimmery light gray color all over my lid. I especially packed it on in the inner and middle parts of the lid because that's where the color is going to show the most. 

Then I used a medium/dark grey color on a flat shader brush and drew a line in an angle upwards as a "wing" of sorts. Build up the color, but don't worry about blending it out or making it "perfect" we can worry about that in the next step.
 Use a blending brush to gently blend out the color, but make sure not to blend too much or else it will look muddy or too light. Also, this is where you can build up the dark grey color to your liking. 
Also, use a light shimmery color on your browbone as a highlight!
 To finish the look, put on some liner and mascara. I kept my cheeks bare, but you can put on a peachy blush if you would like too! Also, I applied a neutral/pink lipstick (dark pink frost by wet n wild)

So that's my gray wearable look! Let me know what you think of it in the comments and subscribe if you like my blog!
