About this series
Each look idea revolves around a “quad” of four shades with the expectation that, depending on the skin tone, one could bring in the right browbone or an additional transition color. I know I’m more likely to use five or six shades in a typical look, but I think four is a good means of giving a good idea of the “core” color scheme of a look while also giving the opportunity to lighten up / darken as desired. I have listed the colors in this order: inner lid, lid center, outer lid / kink and kink / over kink or lid.
You may see combinations that are slightly repetitive but the placement varies (e.g. a halo placement where the lightest and shimmery shade is placed in the center) as the placement can create a different effect / look too! You may also want to consider your preferred matte / shimmer tones (if applicable) to add versatility to certain palettes. Use these ideas as a starting point!
