Five Ways to Wear Giorgio Armani Jacquard Quatuor Eye Palette No 1.

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

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

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

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

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

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.

  • Love them all!

    • Thanks Tracy! I was really surprised at how many ways you can wear this palette. 🙂

  • #3 is my favorite! 😀 I’m a sucker for winged liner, and that’s prolly the way I’d wear it 🙂

    • Love that one, too! The purple really pops when you apply it wet.

  • Loving the 3rd look! Very creative what you’ve done here.. Great job!

    • Thanks Delyteful! The looks weren’t my ideas; it’s all Diana. 🙂

  • All right, I’m starting to come around. This palette looks much more appealing now! Great looks!

    • Thanks, Liz! I finally think it’s a keeper, too!

  • I see you managed to get those five eye looks done, Arianne! Congrats – it’s a feat if I can manage ONE, much less five! 😛 They look awesome.

    (Saw your tweet last night; got distracted by food before I could reply. And before you ask, YES, this is a regular occurrence, and YES, it makes it hard to get anything useful done!)

    • I was just going to attempt one, but I thought the other four might get jealous. 🙂 Thanks!

  • love love LOOOVE all of them! gorgeous looks, arianne! are your eyes still feeling raw? :p

    • Surprisingly not! My eye cream is awesome, I guess. (Consonant Body’s, if you’re curious.) 🙂

  • Holy cow! What an awesome post. This is going in my FOTD inspiration folder for sure.

    • Thanks Marisol! 🙂 Would love to see how you do.

  • Hullo gorgeous!
    I feel this ache in my heart….it’s telling me I want the eye palette!!

    • Hahaha wish it wasn’t so expensive. In fairness there is a lot of product in this palette.

  • Wow, I really love of them. Thanks so much for the EOTD ideas.

    How amazing do those colours look against your glowy bronzed skin!!?

    • Thanks, it is definitely a great late summer/early fall palette.

  • So many smokey looks! I approve 😀

  • Danielle

    I love how you were able to wear a palette is so many different ways and still have the looks have their own feel and identity. I think this should be a challenge with every palette…try to take full advantage of the creative license and be artistic with it. Bravo! Every look is gorg!

    • Thanks Danielle! I’m not that happy with how looks 2 and 4 turned out, so I might try my hand at those again.

  • While these may have only taken me 5 minutes to come up with, I can’t imagin how long it took you to actually do all five! BRAVO!

    #3 is my fav on your eyes but I would love to see you try #2 again but next time, start with a cream shadow in a neutral colour like Champagne (to make the colours more intense) then extendthe shadows at the outer corner. Pure drama! 😉

    Glad to help and thanks for suggestin’ this dim bulb might actually be a genius. 😉

    • Thanks again Diana. I agree about #2; I’ll definitely try your tip. 🙂

  • jamiila

    loving all the looks! You DO have great eyebrows!
