Sydney Grace x Temptalia Quintessence Eyeshadow Palette ($40.00 for 0.76 oz.) is available in a Light version and a Deep version. The difference is in two shades, so one doesn’t get both versions, but selects the one that makes the most sense for their preference, skin tone, and weighed against the rest of what one already has.
Each palette is designed to work in the following combinations:
- Sextets (half) (Primary)
- Quads (Secondary)
- Rows (Secondary)
- Duos (Tertiary function)
Below, you’ll find nine color combinations using shades that exist in both palettes, and then there are seven additional color combinations using the Light and Deep versions.
About This Series
Each look idea is centered around a “quad” of four shades with the expectation that one might bring in the appropriate brow bone or additional transitional shade based on skin tone. Consider these ideas a jumping off point with four “core” colors that can inspire your next look. For reference, based on how I usually apply makeup, I would consider applying the shades in this order: inner lid, middle of lid, outer lid/crease, and crease/above crease or lid.
