Last week, I shared some color combinations to try by pairing two Pat McGrath Mothership Palettes together, which I know some of you enjoyed! I thought I’d put together this post that takes Midnight Sun and extends its color story by sharing five additional combinations one can try with the inclusion of just four more shades (each of the Blitz Astral Quads). Let me know if this was interesting or helpful and whether you’d like to see the quads paired with some of the other Motherships as well!

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 these posts! I certainly would love to see the quads paired with bronze seduction mothership. If possible, I’d also love to see the quads paired with Sydney grace singles. Thanks for all the great ideas!!

Thank you Christine! I haven’t even thought of using Nocturnal Nirvana with Midnight Sun. I’m excited to try several of these combos.

These combinations are beautiful Christine and even if you don’t have the palettes concerned, you can dupe them with your own stash.

Ugh, I do not have Midnight Sun. It was the palette which I purchased on-line during the December PMG sale debacle and then subsequently never received. My funds were eventually returned, but it wasn’t the outcome I wanted. Since then, I’ve held a grudge against the palette and refused to purchase it full price after it restocked following the sale. Yup, I’m venting here.

The point: I love the Midnight Sun Nocturnal Nirvnana 4.0. I think grounding it with Taboo is brilliant. Still not buying the palette.

I love these posts with ideas!
May you please also create some ideas for mothership 1/bronze seduction/divine rose paired with quads?
I would love to see that!

I’m loving these. I tried out a green, gold, red combo today inspired by this post.
