In case you think that applying just one eyeshadow to your eyes is too simple and boring – you can’t be more wrong! The thing is that even one shade can make your makeup look unique. All you need to do is to choose the proper hue, spread it over your lid and blend it up to your brow bone so that there is a slight transition created. There you go, now you are ready to conquer!

When it comes to duo eyeshade sets it is quite obvious that one shade is lighter and the other is darker. Yet, the thing is that you need to choose them properly as well. That is why when you opt for a lighter shade make sure that it is the same shade that your skin is or even a little lighter. As for the darker shade, you can set your imagination free. It goes without saying that you need to achieve balance with your makeup, that is why you need to place the lightest shade closer to your inner eye corner, while the darker shade takes place almost all over the lid. When this proportion is ready, you need to blend it all well, so that there is almost no sharp transition noticeable.

As a matter of fact, there is nothing extraordinary about trio palettes. The thing is that you need to pick your base shade at first. Of course, you pick the one that suits you or the occasion the most. When you have made up your mind, you need to spread it all over your lid, but without going up too much. After that, you should add a darker shade which will create the contour and will emphasize the transition. Your final step is highlighting your brow bone, that is the step that is peculiar to trio sets, yet there is nothing too complex about it as well. Do not forget that blending matters!

As for quads, this is where eyeshadow makeup becomes a little more complex and intricate, but on the other hand, it will make a real pro out of you in no time. What is so special about quads? The thing is that usually there are two light shades with the only difference that one is usually more shimmery. Do not get scared, to tell you the truth playing around with a quads eyeshadow palette is easy and definitely fun. You need to remember, that the less shimmery shade is for your brow bone and inner corner definition, the darkest one is for contour, medium shade is usually applied closer to the inner corner and the middle is taken over by that one light but sparkly shade you may have got confused with at the beginning. As you can see there is nothing difficult about using squads!
