What do the numbers on the eyeshadow quads mean?
The numbers on each True Color Eyeshadow quad correspond to the different application locations Avon recommends for a beginner eye look. To achieve the look, they should be applied in numerical order.
First: The lightest shade (1) goes on the brow bone
Second: The accent shade (2) goes in the inner corner
Third: The Medium shade (3) goes in the outer corner
Fourth: The darkest shade (4) goes on the lash lines
Of course, the shadows also look great in other combinations too! If you’re a more advanced makeup wearer, you can easily create your own looks with True Color.
