Trends Report: Grey Matters

Fall brings colder weather, heavier clothes, and a slightly more serious makeup palette. Colors become darker, smokier, and muddied, with grey pigments a key ingredient thoughtfully added to the mix. Muted palettes – which took a back seat to Summer’s brights – are prominently featured at your local makeup counter. If you’re Muted – this season, you’ll find lots to experiment with. Not sure which color palette is right for you? Fill out your Color Profile now!

This season’s mauve, rose, and plum tones are the perfect complement when combined with darker greys or browns to create a smoky eye. Grey shadow for eyes is not unusual, but on your nails? Several lines have produced nail lacquer in shades that range from freshly poured cement to deep-dark asphalt. If you’re not so daring, try a plum or taupe with grey undertones to achieve the same unique effect.

i love the idea of gray nail polish, but i feel like it would only work on really pale skin or on a great tan.
