Get the Grey Luxe Look Courtesy of

summer is officially in full swing and has some fabulous videos to give you tips on the hottest makeup trends to keep you look great now and into the fall season. one of those trends just happens to be one i've already been incorporating into my routine-- grey and silver eye makeup.

greys and silvers are a fabulous way to do a "neutral" eye because it works on all skin tones and can really give your look a dramatic feel without overpowering your whole face. this trend has been seen on the runways of the Marc Jacobs and Matthew Williamson fall 2009 shows, as well as on celebrities like Kristen Stewart, Hilary Duff and Alicia Keys.

Johnny Lavoy, Maybelline's resident makeup expert and the host of's series Get the Look, offers a step by step tutorial on how to get this classic look in the below video using Maybelline products, but it can really be done using any brand-- you'll need shadows in light silver, deep charcoal, and almost white shades as well as a dark grey eyeliner, your favorite black mascara and a sheer lipgloss.

btw, Johnny's clients include JLo brand, Angie Everhart, Ethan Hawke, Rosie Perez and Laura Peron and his work has been seen in the pages of Vanity Fair, Elle, Glamour, Ocean Drive, Seventeen and Stuff.
