Let your beauty shine with this silvery slate gray makeup look

If you're trying to find a dark and sultry eye look but don’t want to look too much like a raccoon, slate gray is the way to go. This silvery hue allows for a bold look that doesn’t overwhelm your natural beauty. And while this look can give that tough-girl vibe, when paired with a soft, flowy blouse or a flirty dress, it adds a terrific juxtaposition.
By layering shades of gray, you can easily build this look for a night out or soften it for the office. Luckily, there are many palettes that offer silvery gray shades. Try out the colors you have, and use this tutorial as inspiration for 50 shades of you.

For contour, apply a line of Morphe Dimension Effect Highlight & Contour Stick under your cheekbones, along your hairline, on the sides of the bridge of your nose, the inner corner of your eyes, above your chin and along your jawline. Use a powder brush or foundation brush to blend in your contour areas.
5. Dab a makeup sponge in “Banana Bread” Huda Beauty Easy Bake Loose Baking & Setting Powder, and gently press it under your eyes.
6. Finish off the contour with Too Faced Born This Way Multi-Use Complexion Powder and a fluffy powder brush along your hairline and under your cheekbones and jawline.
7. Add MAC Blush in “Eternal Sun” with a blush brush on your cheeks.
8. With a contour brush, add a little Juvia’s Place Loose Highlighter on the tops of your cheeks, the bridge of your nose and above your upper lip.
