Today I went with an everyday Smokey eye. I kept the grey eyeshadows close to the eyes to keep the look from being too dramatic. Gazette Grey eyeshadow (MAC) is a bit difficult to blend and tends to end up looking patchy, but if you layer it slowly, you can achieve a more even look. The Smoke & Diamonds also helped to blend out the colour to create a faded, smokey effect closer to the brow bone. Brule was used to blend out harsh edges.
Products used: MAC Gazette Grey eyeshadow, MAC Smoke & Diamonds eyeshadow, MAC Brule eyeshadow, MAC Blankety lipstick, MAC Happy Together mineralised blush (from the In The Groove collection!). MAC MAC MAC! Lol.
'Happy Together' is the only item I purchased from the recently released In The Groove collection. Everything else was just too shimmery for me (I have visible pores). Apparently this is very similar to NARS Madly, which makes me happy because I've wanted Madly for a while now, and MAC is more affordable! Another pro about this product is that the lighter side is shimmery (excellent highlight!) and the darker side is more of a satin finish, so you can either swirl the two colours together, or use the colours separately.
