Yummy411: I love the Tempting Quad

Okay, ever since I did the last FOTD, I've been wearing this look a few different ways. Did I mention that I love this quad? Really the colors can be duped, but I love them as a whole palette. I wear it to work and here's me using it again for Babylon AD movie night. (Check the other FOTD for the specifics on what I used.) This looks like the other FOTD? I know, but here's what I changed: I used Mystery kohl power liner on the top lid and added a turquoise liner to the water line (hey, it was either that or white liner.. sorry, it's just so me!) I used Ladyblush creme blush on my cheeks.. love it! I didn't think I would like any other creme blush other than Cherche', but this one is hot too. Next to Nothing makes me feel like it's a close cousin to Yogurt eye shadow.




No pics, but today I put Beauty Burst eye shadow in my crease (a reddish brown; A Little Folie eye shadow?) and used Milani's brilliance liner in green on my waterline. No Sharp (lime green) eye shadow on my tear ducts. I love the way Next to Nothing plays with my crease colors; neutral but complimentary! Dark Edge is deep, but not too dark being uncomfortable for a daytime look. It's soft and perfect for my outer v.

Eeps! LOL I'll find a totally different way to wear this quad... promise!

Yes, I have. But unfortunately.....I havent found a look that I liked yet that I've done on myself. The color combos come out all wrong. I dont know what I'm doing!!!
