When I first saw the Giorgio Armani Jacquard Quatuor Eye Palette No 1, I thought, “Pretty, but what an unusual combination of colours!” This makeup addict was stumped. I didn’t want to give up on this beauty, so I turned to Twitter for ideas from fellow beauty junkies.
Giorgio Armani Jacquard Quatuor Palette No 1
One of my favourite makeup artists, Diana Carreiro, suggested five different looks using this eye palette. I sorta kinda think she’s a genius. Thank you, Diana! I tried all the looks for you; these are just quick swipes of colour, and no extra eyeliner was used. The looks would really pop with the right liner.
Look #1. Apply the light green in the inner corners and along the inner third of the bottom lash line. Using a firm eyeshadow brush, pat the purple on the lid. Blend the dark green along the crease, and smudge along the outer two-thirds of the lower lash line. Highlight the brow bone with the gold eyeshadow.
Look #2. Apply the light green all over the lid. Blend the dark green along the crease. Highlight with gold on the inner corner and the brow bone. Apply a fat swipe of purple under the eyes for added drama.
Look #3. Apply the light green on the lid. Blend the dark green in the crease and outer corner of lid. Highlight with gold on the brow bone, and also smudge along the bottom lash line. Apply the purple as a liner on the upper lash line, and wing out at the corner.
Look #4. Apply the gold all over the lid. Apply and blend the purple in the crease. Apply the light green on the inner corner and run along inner third bottom lid. Line the bottom two-thirds of the outer lash line with the dark green.
Look #5. Apply the purple all over the lid and along the bottom lash line. Blend the dark green in the crease. Highlight with the light green on the brow bone. Highlight the inner corner with the gold, and dab down the centre of the lid.
Aren’t these looks just absolutely fabulous? I love how you can take this palette from day to night; it is super versatile. Which look do you like best? I’m torn between #1 and #3; I can’t pick just one.
