My Brow and Base Palette

I have built my own quad which is perfect for doing my brows and base.  If you want a closer look, keep on reading…

All of these shadows are by MAC and I have inserted them into one of their small quad palettes.

Gesso – the first shadow in the palette is a pure white, matte colour.  Its opacity isn’t that intense and I mix this with brule as a brow bone highlight.

Omega – the second shadow in the palette is perfect for my brows.  I don’t use this everyday but if I need a quick, soft brow look this is my go-to.  I use it with an angled brush and stroke it through my brows.  Its the perfect shade for my blonde brows as its cool toned and not ashy at all.  I sometimes use this to run through the crease for subtle definition if I don’t want to use any other eyeshadow.

Soba – I use this colour to run through the crease or all over the lid and compliments my blue eyes.  It is a subtle orangy/brown shade.

Brule – I get through this shade quickly and think this is my forth or fifth pan! it is the same shade as my skin colour and I use it as an all-over base.  It makes blending out other shades a doddle if I use this first.  I like to use this eyeshadow rather than a a typical face compact to use all over the eyes because I find the finish much nicer and it is very finely milled.  As mentioned above, I mix this with Gesso to use at my brown bone for a subtle highlight.
