I wanted to do a grey smokey eye for the holidays, and since we were going for our Christmas tree I wanted to look extra nice for family pictures. I wanted to do a grey smokey eye but not a traditional just black, grey and white. So I paired it with some browns, and golden yellows. Tulio told me..."Hey you should add a little purple in there.." and boy was he right. I just patted on some purple over the whole look and it came out gorgeous. Get your family or friends involved or your boyfriend, or girlfriend and ask for input! sometimes it's great to get inspiration from all types of venues.
The palette I got at DD Discounts a store out here in the Bay Area. I got it for only $4.99 and it is pigmented sooo much I was so so impressed. I know you can also get this palette at TJMAXX since a friend of mine has found the same palette there. Well I hope you enjoy the look and please let me know your thoughts!
