Build a Quad: “Island Paradise”

Build a Quad: “Island Paradise”

Island Paradise is very similar to The Tropics, except it takes it to the next level–brighter, bolder–with the addition of two permanent, but PRO-only eyeshadow shades. I thought it might be nice to give you a more over-the-top kind of tropical eye.

This quad includes: MAC Bright Sunshine eyeshadow (bright yellow), MAC Bio-Green eyeshadow (bright medium green), MAC Freshwater eyeshadow (bright medium blue), and MAC Shimmermoss eyeshadow (shimmery teal). You could also swap out Freshwater and bring in Electric Eel for an even brighter blue.

A few combinations to try with this…

  • Bright Sunshine all over lid, Bio-Green in the outer crease and lid, highlighter on brow
  • Bright Sunshine on inner third of the lid, Bio-Green on the middle of lid, Freshwater on the outer third, Shimmermoss in the crease, highlighter on brow
  • Bio-Green on the inner half of the lid, Shimmermoss on the outer half of the lid, Freshwater in the crease, highlighter on brow
  • Bright Sunshine all over lid, Bio-Green in the outer crease and lid, Freshwater in the crease, highlighter on brow

A few looks I’ve done that can be replicated with these shades…
