Look – Spiced Chocolate Quad for Autumn Delights

I spent all day at orientation for my MBA program, which starts later on in September. Law school classes started this past Monday, unfortunately! Summer is kind of at its end for me, I suppose. Here’s to a better school year than last!

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Blonde’s Gold pigment (beige-gold base), Nanogold eyeshadow (peach-gold duochrome), Brash eyeshadow (copper), Chestnut eyeshadow (rusty cranberry), Raven kohl power (berry-black), Plushlash mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Blooming powder blush (soft pink)
  • Lips: Lightly Ripe lipstick (subdued berry-pink), Rich & Ripe lipglass (dark coral-pink)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: Blonde’s Gold = White Gold; Nanogold = Pink Opal; Brash = Amber Lights; Chestnut = Cranberry; Raven = Foxy Lady; Blooming = Dame; Lightly Ripe = Captive; Rich & Ripe = Lust

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Blonde’s Gold pigment all over the lid as the base with the 249. On the inner lid, apply Nanogold eyeshadow using the 239. Apply Brash eyeshadow to the middle of the lid, overlaying it with Nanogold. Darken the outer lid using Chestnut eyeshadow and drag into crease using the 239. Sweep Nanogold underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with Raven kohl power on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Blooming blush using the 129. Apply Lightly Ripe lipstick to lips, and then top with Rich & Ripe lipglass for color and shine.

i looove these colors on you!
how do you like the spiced chocolate quad…i’m debating lol!
i’m wondering…do you think theres a dupe for that dark brown color in the quad? is it anything like espresso e/s?

I’ve just caught a nasty cold/flu/bug, so I haven’t been feeling like myself, which has gotten me a bit behind, but hopefully I can kick it soon!

I love this look!

btw, your cameral is fantastic! I can even see the tiny sparkles in your lip-glass in the closeup (which makes me want it more)!

hey xtine i fount a DUPE for the “Spiced chocolate” e/s …it’s the hip “cheeky duo” ..if you swatch the “Cranberry” e/s and the a tad bit of the “chocolate” e/s ..you’ll get the exact!!!! color ..lol ..just thought I let you know..wondering …if mac “cranberry” …w/ a tad bit of “bronze” ..would do the trick as well :/

you look very pretty!! <3333333

Beautiful! I gotta try this look next time. I tried the quad last night and Brash looked too bright on me. I’ll try using Nanogold over it next time. I have lightly ripe too, awesome color. All I need now is the Liqueur lip glass.

I use these type of colors mostly every day. I have twinks, and wood winked and cranberry. I still had to get the spiced chocolate quad it’s beautiful. Gotta have new MAC. I like how you placed the lighter colors into the inner lid. It is so pretty.
