Hi elizabeth10115,


I definitely suggest sticking to the cooler end of the color spectrum. Cool tones seem to really bring out gray eyes. I would suggest trying navy eyeshadows to make your eyes really stand out. My favorite trio for gray eyes is the Smashbox Photo Op Eye Shadow Trio in Skybox. This little palette has the perfect shades to make your eyes really pop! You can go for a simple look by just adding one of the colors, or do an entire smoky eye with all three of the shades. Smiley Happy

If you like smokey eyes, I would look at the urban decay smoked palette. Obviously you should go more towards cooler smokey eyes and I would stay away from gray smokey eyes because they would be too similar to your eye color/

Seconding the suggestions for taupe and purple (especially plummy) shades. My eyes are gray and I get lots of compliments on days when I wear the darker end of the Naked 3 palette, Sugarpill's Poison Plum, the purple end of Kat Von D's Sinner palette. I find that eyeliners in black or purple work best - KVD's Homie and Puro Amor and Runaway, Urban Decay's Perversion and Blackheart and Darkside, Sephora Collection Waterproof Cream in Bewitch Me and Must Have. 


Colors that are frequently suggested that just kind of muddy the waters, IMO, and make my eyes pop less (even if they don't look bad over allSmiley Happy muted or blue-jeansy blues and khaki/olive greens. Teal and turquoise blues can work out, depending on what color clothing I'm wearing, though. The gray/black end of Sinner doesn't give me a dull look but it does give me a very steel-y look, great for a very bold lip.

It may take some trial and error, but there are certain violets and plums that will make grey eyes pop. You can do an understated grey lavender or a brighter violet and some grey plums will make a dramatic smokey eye. Happy shopping!

With grey eyes, they tend to pop with shades of grey, taupe, silver, and ivory. For playing the eyes up go with electric eyeliner colors like bright yellow, or purple.


Here are some suggestions
