INGLOT: Is It Spring Yet?

2

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.

    I think if you do your eyebrows a little thinner – that gives a little more space- and given a neat shape , would look even better. may be darkening your eyebrows after u trim them would change the look as well. Just a thought though.. 🙂

    • Ugh, brows. I think brows are the most difficult thing to figure out when it comes to makeup. My brows have been a work in progress for a loooong time. I just recently found what I think works for me and they’re actually thicker, but more balanced with a better shape. I’ve also been able to make them a little fuller naturally. So far, I’m liking thicker brows because it helps balance out my nose and lips. Brows are even more difficult when taking blogging pics because of the lighting. My brows in this post isn’t my favorite. Thanks for your comment!
