Prep eyes with a liquid primer to avoid creasing or flaking of the shadow. Apply a pea-sized amount of primer to your entire lid with your index finger. Don't have any liquid primer handy? Swipe a few dots of liquid foundation on your eyes as a ready-made primer substitute.
Using a medium-sized eyeshadow brush, swipe a neutral shade of powder in the arch shape of the eye just above the crease of the eyelid. To make your eyes pop for daytime, the experts at Cover Girl recommend applying taupe, bronze or brown eyeshadow shades to light-colored eyes. For evening, upgrade your grey eyes with a sparkly silver or gold shadow that serves as your nighttime neutral color.
Blend the neutral-colored shadow from the arc shape of the eye to the lower lash line with your brush to cover any visible veins and prevent a striped eyeshadow look.
Line your pale grey eyes with a gunmetal shade of shadow. Using a smaller eyeshadow brush with firm bristles, press the dark grey shade of shadow into your lower lash line. If you don't have a steady hand, use a dark grey eyeliner pencil instead of the shadow. Draw a small line along your lash line. Blend it with your index finger.
Sweep a highlight shade in vanilla or taupe under your brow bone to give eyes more definition. Blend the three shadows with a large blush brush to complete the eye-popping look. Add two generous coats of brown mascara to your lashes.

If you have dark eyelashes, clear mascara is a great mascara alternative that makes your lashes appear more visible, without overpowering your grey eyes.
When applying eye shadow to grey eyes, choose an eyeshadow hue, like ice blue or amethyst, that is complementary, and the opposite of your own natural eye color.
For daytime, keep the focus on your gleaming grey eyes with a neutral cheek color and an understated lip.
