February is the month of love and in 2015, it is the arrival of the blockbuster, Fifty Shades of Grey. Many have you have already read the salacious books, and seen the film or waiting to view it soon. One of the top films of the year, it is natural that the fashion world is inspired by this seductive film. The movie’s lead actress Dakota Johnson has graced the February cover of Vogue and her character has inspired a “50 Shades” makeup kit by Make Up For Ever. Although the kit is concentrating on the innocent turned seductress look of Anastasia Steele, I’m going to take my beauty inspiration of the film literal. Taking a play on “Fifty Shades of Grey,” here are some gray-hued makeup to channel the famous book series. Although not in fifty shades, these pieces are equally seductive.
Go bold and daring like Christian Grey himself. Opt for a matte lipstick in a cool gray. For those wanting to make a quieter statement, a sliver gloss will give you shine. Pair it with a deep side pony and dark black eyeliner for a business meets pleasure look.
Create a steely gaze with these eyeliners. During the day, try a smooth, thick grey line above jet black lashes. Don’t bother with eyeshadow, it would be a visual overload.
Turn it up for night with a glittery silver, your lids with sparkle in the dark light.
This is the best option for those shy about wearing this shade. For a subtle look, use a powder in a deep matte gray paired with a thick strip of eyeliner. For a highly pigmented look, look into a bright gray, silver shadow. There’s no need for eyeliner, the gray lids will be enough. You don’t want you look to be too dominating, lol.
