Neutrals are great, and they’re obviously popular or else we wouldn’t continue to see so many neutral palettes released… but oooh, how I love adding color to any (or every) look. I’m the person who will start off a look going, “Keep it simple, do a bronzy eye,” and then the next thing I know, there are 10 shades in use and far from simple or neutral! The whole concept of one-and-done is like an alternate universe for me; love it on others but find I itch to add more shades into a look.

Below, you’ll find 37 different ideas across various pre-made palettes along with some combos using single eyeshadows. I’ve put together a mix of looks that are more about adding a pop of color along with full-on, unapologetic color. Hope you find at least one that inspires you to pull out products you already own to recreate!

If you’re looking for more neutral possibilities, check out my previous post, which focused on them!

About This Series

Each look idea is centered around a “quad” of four shades with the expectation that one might bring in the appropriate brow bone or additional transitional shade based on skin tone. I know that I tend to use more like five or six shades in a typical look, but I think that four is a happy medium to give a good idea of the “core” color scheme of a look while giving you the ability to lighten/darken as desired. I have listed the colors in this order: inner lid, middle of lid, outer lid/crease, and crease/above crease.

You might see combinations that seem slightly repeated but placement will vary (e.g. a halo placement where the lightest and more shimmery shade is placed on the center) as placement can also create a different effect/look! You might also want to consider incorporating your favorite matte/shimmer shades (as applicable) to increase the versatility of certain palettes. Consider these ideas a jumping off point!

I love all the combination shades you come up with Christine. Personally I tend to favour the autumn tones and the icy blue/grey shades. These are so cleverly put together in that even if you don’t have all 4 colours, you probably have 2-3 in your stash. Thank you Christine.

Thank you, Genevieve!

That’s a great point – you can easily work from two or three in a combo and customize it further!

Naturally, rain on the sea is my drop dead fave, and SG EL light is my most resisted piece in all makeupland. Whyyyyyy? There are some terrific quads here, and trios, too. I love these posts/this feature. Theyโ€™re such fun to envisualize, even if you never try a one. Some great fall combos, too.

LOL, I feel like I know readers well — I have a pretty good inkling of the combos that will get the most loves, haha!

I feel like the only way a neutral eye happens for me is if the palette is ALL neutrals and I’m testing it, so I can’t deviate, LOL!
