When you’re shopping for eyeshadow, grey probably isn’t the first shade you reach for. It’s a lot more fun to play around with rose and orange hues and maybe even some blues and greens. But grey eyeshadow is actually really handy to have around, especially if you love a smokey eye look. It doesn’t have to be a dramatic one, or you prefer to go more laid-back. Light grey shadow is so pretty with a pop of white and pink.

Of course, grey shadow can be totally dramatic if you so please. Use a slate grey in the creases and apply a major wing for an eye-catching vibe. These grey eyeshadow options will help you get whichever look you choose. Pick one simple—but perfect—cream shadow to add to your beauty kit. There is also a four-shadow mini palette that says exactly where to apply each shade right on the shadow. (So easy!) Or play with 12 different white and grey shades for a variety of light to deep looks. The possibilities are endless.
