Glamour.com has had its radar on some rather brilliant eye makeup looks that have been cropping up on the red carpet as of late (we're looking at you, Olivia Munn and Diane Kruger). The two leading ladies both experimented with gray and silver shadow looks (and even pairing gray on top with bronze on the bottom), with results looking fabulous all around.

If you're looking for a way to add some sophisticated interest to your eye makeup this summer - or perhaps even provide some much-needed balance to an outrageous outfit - consider the power of grays, browns, bronzes and creams.

Neutrals are notoriously easy to pull off, but even the simplest eye makeup looks can greatly benefit from a coat of blinc Eyeshadow Phase One. The shadow base acts as a perfect primer for any eye makeup look and resists smearing and creasing throughout the day.
