12 Pat McGrath Palette Pairings to Try

As the popularity of Pat McGrath Mothership Palettes has grown, I thought I’d share some color combinations that combine two palettes (as I’ve done color combos from the individual palettes in the past). I decided to focus around the three most recent Mothership releases, as they seemed to be more popular! As always, these color combinations are designed to inspire–whether you have the specific products or to merely put the colors and textures on your radar to try with products you own that are similar.

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!
