Urban Decay Game of Thrones Eyeshadow Palette launches this Sunday (the 14th), so here are 15 different ideas on how to wear the shades in the palette. It’s interesting that while, at a glance, the palette looks like it was designed to be cohesive, I didn’t find the types of color combinations to be that interesting–it was a struggle to come up with 15 “quads” to share here.
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!
