Grey eyes

My eyes are grey blue, more grey than blue. What eyeshadow shades are flattering? I am not particularly bothered in making them look bluer - just want a flattering shade.

Lots of browns, from light grey-y brown I.e taupe colours, to a more golden brown, been experimenting with pinky-brown shades too. Proper grey just makes my dark circles look worse.

If you're a proper grey blue then cool toned greys and silvers will work well. Also purples plums and amethyst if you are more of a silver grey.
As pp said, all tones of brown. The more orangey, the more blue your eyes will look.

Bear in mind your skin tone however. I have grey blue eyes and theoretically all the above should work. But colours too near the terracotta end of the spectrum do nothing for my flushed colouring.
