like this, but grey.
I loved the effect. It goes on very sheerly, so I am less concerned that I will end up looking like that astronaut's mug shot, but with layering it makes for an excellent nighttime eye.
But something was missing....So it was into the breech once more!
I unearthed a Bourjois shadow I snapped up in Paris a few years ago which is a sheer green color with just a touch of blue undertone and gold shimmer.
sort of a cross between these two.
I dusted a little green over the grey and voila! A perfect new evening look. Edgy. Sexy. And totally new and exciting.
So, in this time of desperate cold, instead of heading out to stores to pick up something new, I encourage everyone to spend some time going through your own box o' the makeup past and experiment!
