Simple Natural Look using Chanel Prelude Quad

This is a look that has been my go-to for weeks now. It's so simple, it really doesn't need a full "tutorial" but I thought I'd throw it out here anyways. I ordered the Chanel Prelude quad a while ago and was slightly disappointed when I first opened it up - blame it on the huge beautiful palettes that I've been buying lately. When I first used it though, I was in love. The shadows are so absolutely subtly beautiful! If you're looking for a natural smaller palette or quad for travel (and are in the position to spend an obscene amount of money), I'd definitely recommend this one! It'll for sure be the one I travel with, and just reach for anyways.

Step 1: Apply the top left shade on the outer corner of your top lid like you would a line and flick it out just a little. I used a Sigma E65 Small Angle brush.
Step 2: Using an E30 pencil brush, apply the bottom left shade on the outer part of your bottom lash line.
Step 3: Then take the same shade and brush and smudge just a little into your outer crease.
Step 4: Curl your lashes and apply mascara. I used Dior's Diorshow Iconic
