Grey Monday - Subtle Look with Coastal Scents Revealed and Dance Legend

Hello, Fireflies!

Here in Florida, it's rained and/or stormed almost every day for over a month.  I spend most of my time in the A/C, but even though I'm not out in the weather, it's still starting to affect me!

So, today's look is a subtle neutral one in greys and berry colors, in homage to these grey Florida days.


I've been experimenting with a look I saw Wayne Goss do in a video for mature eyes.  It's a much older video of him, but I think the techniques are classic.


Here's a close-up of my eyes.  I used the Coastal Scents Revealed palette and my now HG gel liner, NARS Black Valley.  That stuff stays where you put it.
Here's what I used on the whole look:  Mally Primed and Poreless, and Mally Face Defender.  Kevyn Aucoin Creamy Glow in Pravana, Cover FX Setting Powder (as a bronzer), Nars Black Valley, L'Oreal HIP Shine Struck liquid lipcolor in Arresting, IT Cosmetics brow pencil, Rimmel ScandalEyes Retro Glam Mascara, and a blend of IT Cosmetics CC Cream in medium, and CoverGirl True Blend 1/410 to lighten it up a tad.


I'm having no luck with the Mally Face Defender.  It's supposed to be a 'no powder' look, but I find that it looks cakier on me than if I used regular powder.  Those of you who are successful with it, what foundation are you using?  What's your secret?

To go with the look, I used a grey polish from Dance Legend's Smoky collection, called Grey Britain 1025. 

Dance Legend Grey Britain

It has a smooth texture, but a grey pebbled look to it, like ashes scattered amongst the grey.  It's quite pretty and unique!


What do you think of my greyed look?  What are your favorite greys to use?
