GREY – Christian’s Fifty Shades of Grey Story

I know I’m a bit behind on the whole Fifty Shades of Grey hype, but about a month or so ago, I started reading the first book and just COULD NOT put it down!

If you have blond hair, pale skin and light eyes, you will look best in the paler shades of grey. Shades such as light grey, dove or pewter teamed with violets, aquas or pinks, will look gorgeous on you. Those with dark hair and dark eyes should stick to charcoal grey. The deep and rich characteristics of this shade are fantastic when mixed with this season’s lush purples or reds. If you have dark hair and light eyes, you need to combine your charcoal grey with a lighter or brighter colour. Or try bright red or a deep purple with light grey. All shades of grey are a must for…
