Fool-proof Smokey Eye Using Lise Watier Fall 2011 Quatuor Wet & Dry Eyeshadows in Équinoxe.

I can’t show you swatches of Lise Watier Équinoxe quad without showing you a look, can I? That would be so mean of me. 😛 When I first saw this palette, it instantly screamed smokey eye to me. Unfortunately I wore this look before I found my bottle of Métamorfix liquid transformer, so these shadows as shown here were applied dry. Just for kicks here’s a reminder of how the palette looks like:

Get the Look

For the eyes, start with a grey cream eyeshadow base (Mary Kay Glacier Gray Creme Eye Color) all over the lid past the crease. Go over the same area with the grey from the Lise Watier palette, and blend out the edges. Next, pat on the muted blue all over the lid. Take the chocolate brown with a pointed crease brush and map out a slight wing shape on the outer corners. Fill in the outer third of the lid with the chocolate brown. Then, using a pencil/smudge brush, smudge the chocolate brown into the top and bottom lash lines. Clean up the shape with a Q-tip, if necessary. Just above the chocolate brown, apply a matte warm brown (MAC Soft Brown) to warm up the brow bone. Highlight the brow bone and inner corners with the icy white eyeshadow.

Line the top and bottom waterlines with a black liner (Annabelle Ohmygoth! Smudgeliner). Finish with a couple coats of volumizing mascara (Annabelle Le Big Show Mascara).

For the cheeks, keep it natural with a matte pinky brown blush (NARS Douceur Blush) and sweep up and out towards your ears.

For the lips, apply a glossy nude pink lipstick (Chanel Ming Rouge Allure Laque).

    Beautiful! I love that the highlight shade you can actually wear it on your brow bone as well. Often in quads, the highlight shade is great for the inner corners but way too much for brow bone 😉 Lovely!

    • Thanks Mel! It shows you that it really is versatile that it even works on skin tones as tan as mine. 🙂

  • Danielle

    Love it! It’s an easy-to-wear smokey eye and that gloss is perfect with it! Gorg 😉

    • Thanks Danielle! Oh, and it’s a lipstick. 😛

  • gorgeous! LOVE the chocolate brown and the hint of blue.

    • I know eh? It created a kind of blue/grey/brown trio-chrome. 🙂

  • So, so pretty! This looks like a great palette. Sometimes I only end up using 2 or 3 colours in a quad!

    I STILL can’t seem to line my waterline correctly. You MUST help me!

    • Okay waterline tutorial when I see you next. 🙂

  • PS – look at you with the fancy new layout!

    • Hahaha thanks! Now you know what I did over the long weekend.

  • Holy aslkdfjg;h this is absolutely breathtaking. I love it! :o)

  • Stunning look! But, I must confess that my fave part about it is the lippie!

    • It’s my favourite nude pink Sarah. 🙂

  • You look so beautiful! This Quatuor is so universal I think, and will look great on everyone! Love the lippie as well!

    • Thanks Tracy! I totally agree. 🙂 It’s so wearable.

    You do fabulous work on your eyes and it shows so well in your photography. It’s amazing. I have so much to learn still. Eye shots are so hard but you make them look very easy.
