Earlier this week, the mid-west had several days of 90 degree weather, now it is in the 50’s. Where I live, winter is eight months long and spring doesn’t arrive until June. Yes, I’m exaggerating, but barely. I figured I’d match my look with the calendar versus the temperature. I used several Inglot matte and low shimmer shades for this look.

Get This Look:
I applied Mac’s Painterly paint pot all over my lid with a SS239. I softened the edges with a skin tone shade (for me it’s Mac’s Soft Brown). With a Mac 217, I blended the orange shade into and above my crease. With the same brush, I blended the pink color into my crease, but not completely covering up the orange. The orange should peek out a bit. With the same 217 brush (wiped clean), I blended the purple Inglot shade into the outer corner. To define the outer V, I used Laura Mercier’s eye crease brush and Indian Ink eye shadow.
For the highlighter, I chose a matte Inglot cream shade. To line the upper and lower lash line, I used a purple liner from Urban Decay. For the lower water line, I used an iridescent purple/pink liner with green shimmer by Urban Decay. I chose a berry blush for the cheek. By the way, these new Tarte blushes are fantastic. The quality and pigmentation is equal to Nars, but with better ingredients.
