Maybelline EyeStudio Eyeshadow Quad Review & TutorialWednesday, July 07, 2010
Maybelline Eye Studio eyeshadow quad in Sapphire Siren. Its got 4 totally pigmented and shimmery shadows- white, teal, dark blue, and black. They are really silky and blend great. I love using the shimmery white with any look everyday to put in the corners of my eyes or under my brow bone. The little applicator works great for the inner corner.
I created a less dramatic look than the one in the first picture. My pictures did not turn out as well because I took them at night with a flash. If I had done them in natural light, you would've seen the intensity of the colors better.
First, using a flat shader brush, put the white color all over your lid, all the way to the brow bone. Make the color more intense in the inner corner.
Then using the same brush, take the teal color and put it on the outer 3/4 of your eye.
Next, use the dark blue color on the outer half of your eye.
Then using the pointed tip on the applicator it comes with, take the dark blue color and line the upper and lower lashline with this.
Last, use the black color in the outer crease with a pencil brush.
Use a fluffy brush to blend the entire eye.
I lined my entire eye and waterline with Jordana EasyLiner in Blue Devine.
Last, I curled my lashes and applied Loreal Telescopic Clean Definition Mascara in Blackest Black.
And thats it! It looks complicated but its simple. These quads come with a picture of the look on the back for help.

There will be more looks using these quads and a post about eyeshdow for different eye colors. This one goes great with brown eyes, or blue :]
