QUADrophenia – Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere…

IMG_1031 IMG_1032
So our first quad is a mix of two beautiful light shades a crazy bright copper and a subtle but stunning grey.

Blanc Type (My fave!! its a beautifully creamy beige matte2, i can’t say enough good things about this shadow I’m beyond obsessed with it! )

Vex (A beige frost shadow that has tiny pinky green reflects in it! now that sounds insane but its beautiful and subtle and seems like a shadow made for Glinda the good witch.)

Coppering (A beautiful Orangey Copper colour with hints of red. Its a veluxe pearl that is highly pigmented and blends beautifully. Its stunning on blue eyes and really brings out all these beautiful shades in your iris. I didn’t even know my eyes had it in em!).

Scene (a medium grey satin it applies like a dream and requires no effort! i’m pretty obsessed with this grey too! its so easy to use when in a rush and really adds a sexy little smoke to any look!)

To get the look above I took a 217 brush and swept the lid with Blanc type, I also brushed this under my bottom lashes.
Using the same brush I blended Vex into the inner 3rd of my eye blending it out towards the outer corner of my eyelid.
I then blended Scene into the crease making sure to blend it seamlessly with the vex.
Taking a 219 Pencil brush I held onto the outer corner of my lid ensuring the lid was held tight. I then swept the 219 acres my lid from the inner to the outer corner. I then took the 219 under my lower lash line and blended.
I finished the look by curling my lashes, Coating with mascara and adding a flick of eye liner only on the outer lid. I only wanted to accentuate the coppering not take it over. And Voila! I got a lot of compliments on this make up look yesterday so I was very happy with the first of the Quad series! Coppering is only a very new addition to my collection and this was my first look using it so I’m quite happy it worked out 🙂

hope you enjoy it!
