There's more to shadows than just the colors in your quad. If your lids are greasy, you should be in the market for a crease-less formula. If you have trouble mixing hues, a finely milled powder will make less work for you and your brush. If building intense color is your conundrum, make sure you pick a product that's heavily pigmented.



Though there's lots to think about before selecting the perfect palette, don't be intimidated by the process! The beauty of shadow quads is that they give you an entire eye makeup look in one perfectly packaged square. The shades are carefully selected to not only go well together but to enhance each color with the next. As a general rule, you should try to keep the lighter hues towards the inner corners of your eyes and gradually apply the darker shades as you work your way towards the outer corners. But before you can start creating new looks, you need to select a quad that can be your go-to in the new year. Browse through our top picks and decide which one catches your eye!
