Recently, I learned a tip from La Prairie's Color Ambassador, Raychel Wade. It's so obvious, yet so incredibly true. She says:

When it comes to eye shadow quads, don't feel pressured to use all four colors in a quad at once. Sometimes eye makeup looks just a pretty with one simple hue.

Like I said before, it's obvious, yes. However, this got me to thinking about my own habits. For some reason or another, I feel pressure to use most — if not all — colors in my own multishadow palettes. I suppose I feel like they're all there for a reason, working in perfect harmony, you dig? What about you: do you work with all of the shades in your quads, or do just use one simple hue?
