Holiday/New year's Party Look For a Grey/Charcoal Outfit

I wore a charcoal sweater dress to a Christmas lunch yesterday and thought I'd quickly click some pics in a moving car. First pic up there is after about 4 hours and a glass of red wine hence 'the eyes' and 'the lips' ;)
I chose to wear shades of grey & pink makeup. Pink complements grey and charcoal shades perfectly. We could've went with grey & silver, but those two shades together can make us look too frosty & cold, especially in winters. Pink adds a little bit of warmth.

Some pics before the party....

Too much glue on my falsies >.< (makeup in a hurry =D)

Face ~ Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation & Concealer, TBS Face Powder
Cheeks~ NYX Pinky powder blush
Lips ~ MAC Loud & Lovely Cremesheen Glass 

On the eyes, I used just the NYX Runway Palette in Super Model... 

1st creamy white on the inner corners, pink on the center of lids, on the crease & outer corners I used the medium grey, dark grey and black.
Other products on eyes: IN2IT Gel Liner Pencil, Lakme Black Satin Kajal, Revlon Beyond Natural eyelashes, Bourjois Maxi Frange Mascara on top & bottom lashes.

I think this look would be great for any party this season.

What color do you usually team with grey?

♥ Cynthia Z ^.^


  1. You look fab CZ.. :)

    I tend to pair grey tops with either jewel green or jewel plum/purple shades in eyeliner & a soft, almost barely there grey as eyeshadow :)

  2. You look gorgeous Cynthia...and i liked the way u combined Grey and Pink..It indeed brings a warmth to the cold wintery days..esp when the colour of dress is also muted like grey n all.

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
