Get That Perfect Griege for The Bold look
How would you like to go about trying a new lipstick shade that makes you look like a dead man’s cyanosed lips? (Cyanosed- cyan by color, you know what i am taking about). I see you Cringing, yes i do! Trust me, it’s not that scary.
So what is Graige? : Graige is a mix of Grey and beige but also craft-fully hems in grey with mauve or lavender or grey with brownish taupe bases to render a set of edgy cool neutral tones to die for. Earlier used to define colors of paints on walls, now the word ‘Graige’ itself got a modish purpose of life.
I won’t say it’s a piece of a cake to pull this trend especially when the goal is to look bold and edgy and not hypothermic. Not trying to intimidate you, I am opining that the idea needs a bit of thought to be put into.
Meanwhile I deliver a few simple workable directives that should help you:
- Fuse a bolder color (like purple labelled 1. in diagram above) outwards and a lighter griege in the middle to present a sophisticated + eased It’s also the easiest one to carry for everyone. Dark skinned beauties would also find it much easier to pull off.
- Or toss a look like picture 2 covering a greater area with griege (with mauve tones) to amp up that Edge in that edgy.
- Another interesting idea is 3 where adding a little (not heaps) sparkle does wonders for special occasions (when you won’t eat that much and better be on a diet!). Hope D.U college girls are listening!
- Griege works great with western outfits with minimal efforts.
- However Indian Attire would work wonders if dress is in lighter shades of beige, light pastel shades of all colors or even all-over grey outfit
- Darker skins will be complemented greatly with matte Do NOT go for non-matte creamy texture. Also be careful that the shade you choose darker undertones of mauve and lesser percentage of grey or beige or else lips would be ‘ashy’. I suggest applying Cashmere by Lime Crime and ColorPop Ultramatte liquid lipstick in Kapow here.
- Its a great shade for Fall than any other season.
- No-one should detest a little originality in styling. I absolutely believe this and encourage everyone to put more imagination and try new ways out with this shady shade.
