Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Quad

Today I’m sharing the Kat Von D Smoke Quad tutorials with you. I created 5 different tutorials, each one building upon each other. I bought this quad at the Makeup Show Orlando a few months ago. I wanted to show the versatility of the quad and how to take it from a simple look to a more complex one. I think my blending has greatly improved since I last played with this palette. Kat Von D’s mattes are my favorite matte formula to work with. I find them the easiest for me to build up and blend out.

The Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Quad in Smoke is supposed to be made up of matte cool greys. On me, the base shade reads more like a warm grey or grey taupe. The rest of the colors do seem cool-toned though.

The Kat Von D Smoke Quad is $22 at Sephora.

Kat Von D Smoke Quad Tutorial - Quick and Easy one eyeshadow tutorial

Quick and easy eyeshadow look one has only two steps.

  • Step 1, apply your eyeshadow primer. I used tarte Lid Lock in Buff. Any neutral tinted eyeshadow primer will do.
  • Step 2, apply the Base shade to the lid, lower lid, and crease of the eye.

This eyeshadow primer says it’s a neutral, but I think it appears slightly yellow-toned on my skintone.

  • Step 4 smudge Define at the upper lash line and outer lower lash line.

Iridescent Smoky tutorial with My Pretty Zombie Unicorn Pee, Kat Von D Alchemist Saphyre and Kat Von D Smoke Quad

It just didn’t feel right to end the night without a little bit of glitter, so I used My Pretty Zombie Unicorn Pee. Unicorn Pee is an iridescent white blue with multi-colored glitter.

  • Step 1 apply your primer.
  • Step 2 apply your Base shade all over.
  • Step 3 apply Contour to the outer lid, outer crease and outer lower lid.
  • Step 4 smudge Define at the upper lash line and outer lower lash line.
  • Step 5 highlight with Highlight under the brows and at the inner corner. Optional: line the lower waterline with Urban Decay Walk of Shame pencil.
  • Step 6 apply Saphyre to the lid and inner corner.
  • Step 7 apply Unicorn Pee with a damp brush to the lid and inner v.

I really enjoyed putting together 5 easy looks using the Kat Von D Smoke Quad. I hope you find it helpful for putting together eyeshadow looks with this palette. I may do some more complicated looks with the palette soon.
