True Color Eyeshadow Quad – Purple Haze

I wanted to share one of my favorite eye shadow palettes from Avon:  True Color Eyeshadow Quad in Purple Haze.

I love how all four shades in the quad palettes are complimentary.  You can wear just 1 shade or all and they work together.

Also, on the back of each of the quads is a diagram and it shows you how to apply each colour.

You can see that I’ve used the palette quite a bit!
Here are a couple of shots of how I wore all four colours. (Please remember I am not a make up artist, so I’m sure my technique is far from perfect!)
First, I put the lightest colour all over my lids and under my brow bone.


Next, I applied the medium/light shade from the middle of my lids to the outer edge.  Sorry, in the pictures it’s really difficult to see the colour difference as the light of the camera captures the pigment of the eyeshadow differently than in real life.

Then, I took the medium/dark colour and added it to the outer edge of my eye and up the contour of my eyelid almost in a “sideways V” motion:

Last, I took the darkest colour and applied it REALLY SPARLINGLY to the very outer edge of my eye.  I then blended it up into the contour but did not actually add any colour to the contour.  Remember, you can always add more colour to layer but it’s difficult to undo what has already been done!

That’s it for the eyeshadow!  To finish I lined my eyes with Avon Glimmerstick Waterproof eyeliner in Teal waters (I like coloured eyeliners, but most people are more comfortable with black, brown or grey).  Teal waters is unfortunately no longer available but Midnight Blue will give you a similar look.


Finally I coated my lashes with a thin coat of  Avon’s Wash off Waterproof Mascara in Navy.  (Sorry Navy is also no longer available!)
And here is the final look!
And that’s it!   I’m sure I will learn how to produce better pictures and figure out other ways to do my eye makeup, so I hope to produce better posts in the future!
