I needed a bit of a pick-me-up, and I actually really enjoy putting color combinations together, especially when I can choose from a larger variety of shades (not just the shades in a particular palette). I opted to use Sydney Grace Eyeshadows because they’re consistently higher performing (one of the better-rated single eyeshadow ranges I’ve come across), but it’s also an incredibly diverse range of finishes and tones. It’s genuinely hard to find cooler-toned single eyeshadows these days, and a lot of mainstream brands have whittled down their single ranges over the last few years!

So, here are some color combinations that I always love wearing, and you know me… I’m big on variety. I love it all! Hopefully, there’s a combo or two that inspires you to try using whatever you may have on hand!

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. I know that I tend to use more like five or six shades in a typical look, but I think that four is a happy medium to give a good idea of the “core” color scheme of a look while giving you the ability to lighten/darken as desired. I have listed the colors in this order: inner lid, middle of lid, outer lid/crease, and crease/above crease.

You might see combinations that seem slightly repeated but placement will vary (e.g. a halo placement where the lightest and more shimmery shade is placed on the center) as placement can also create a different effect/look! You might also want to consider incorporating your favorite matte/shimmer shades (as applicable) to increase the versatility of certain palettes. Consider these ideas a jumping off point!
