EOTD: Pink + Grey Prettymaking-inspired

I saw the most beautiful combination of pink and grey eyeshadows on the blog Prettymaking (check out her version here) and I knew I needed to try it out myself! Somehow I've never thought of combining these colors; I have a few pink eyeshadows in my stash that go unused. This look got lots of compliments from guys (other than my boyfriend), which is a first for me!

I layered the brighter pink on top of the marbled gold/brown/pink shade from the WnW 'Baking a Cake' baked palette in my inner corner, then blended the medium and dark shades from the L'Oreal Queen's Gaze quad on the outer two thirds of my eye. I smudged some black liner near my upper eyelashes and set it with the dark grey shadow from the L'Oreal quad. I also used an angled brush and sort of painted the black UD eyeliner onto my lower lashes. A very soft, smokey everyday look for sure.

Products Used
- Urban Decay Primer Potion original primer (HG for now)
- the marbled gold/pink shade and pink shade from Wet n Wild's Baking a Cake baked eyeshadow palette
- the medium and dark shades from the L'Oreal Queen's Gaze eyeshadow quad 
- Urban Decay pencil in Zero
- Hard Candy Glamoflauge in Light (under eye concealer)
- Maybelline Eye Studio MasterShape Brow Pencil in Blonde
- Maybelline Dream LumiTouch Highlighting Concelear in Radiant (under eyebrow) 
- black mascara (I'm switching it up between some samples, so I don't know for sure which brand)

If you can't tell - I loved wearing this! I can't wait to mix it up and do some more combinations with these colors in the near future (lighter pinks, silvers, black. etc.). I also wanted to share my LOVE for the blog Prettymaking - she has hands-down the best eyeshadow swatches I've seen on any beauty blog and I love her creative, but wearable, eye looks. Definitely a blog I look up to in terms of beauty blogging.

Do you like this look? What's your favorite eyeshadow colors to wear together?


  1. This is very pretty! I almost always stick to neutrals myself. :)

  2. I love these EOTD's. I have SO many colors of eyeshadow yet most days I just throw on a winged eye and some red lippy and go. These inspire me to be more creative!
