My fave eyeshadow quad and my everyday look..

Hello my dears! I love eyeshadow quads because sometimes I have to apply eye makeup on the go and I don't have the convenience to reach out for one of my big palettes. Quads are convenient because they can be brought around and there are already four different shades for your eyes. The downside is that they can put a damper on your creativity since you can only choose among 4 colors, but I still like them. I'd like to show you my favorite eyeshadow quad. It's my Coffret D'or eyeshadow quad. The SA told me that's it's one of their bestsellers and I can see why. The colors are soft and very wearable and it comes with a powder eyeliner.

Here is a picture of it that I've labelled:


Colors A, B, C are powder eyeshadows while D is a small eyeliner. It's a pretty color but I recommend that you use this strictly as an eyeliner and not as an eyeshadow because I find the consistency to be very different. It's harder to blend them with the other eyeshadows especially when used with a primer like UDPP.

I've noticed that most Kanebo eyeshadow palettes come with an illustration on where they recommend that you apply the makeup. Here is the illustration that came with mine. Of course, you don't have to follow it if you don't want to.


Here's my version. I didn't follow the illustration to the letter. This is my favorite everyday look. I don't make it too dark and I normally don't deepen my crease for day looks since it's quite odd in my line of work. So I added grey eyeliner and an everyday lengthening mascara.



So here's my final everyday look:
