50 shades of grey: the green beauty collection

50 Shades of Grey Green Beauty Alternative Makeup Collection_A

50 Shades of Grey opens on Valentine’s Day, but my friends and I got advanced screening tickets to watch it on Wednesday. It’s going to be one of those awkward movies that you just have to watch because, well, of how awkward it’s going to be.

Make Up For Ever released a 50 Shades of Grey beauty collection in time for the premiere and, as you guys know, I love to take these mainstream cosmetic collections and create my own alternative green beauty collection.

If you want to re-create Anastasia’s look using clean products here are my suggestions for you:

  1. kjaer weis eye shadow in ‘cloud nine‘ ($54; refill $32)
  2. kajer weis eye shadow in ‘earthy calm‘ ($54; refill $32)
  3. alima pure pearluster eye shadow in ‘cimarron‘ ($12.50)
  4. alima pure luminious shimmer eye shadow in ‘martinique’ ($12.50)
  5. w3ll people bio extremist mascara ($26)
  6. studio 78 paris we take off eye pencil in ‘shooting star‘ ($22)
  7. ilia beauty lipstick in ‘perfect day‘ ($26)
  8. w3ll people lipgloss in ‘grapefruit‘ ($28)


  • Gorgeous shades! I just would have assumed that the eyeshadows would be different shades of grey. There are so many different ways to wear it, shimmery, duochrome, matte, and smoky.

    • Haha I know right?! So many possibilities and so many different looks that they could have gone with. Perhaps for the second book 😉
