I Am NOT Bitter

I’ve heard this INGLOT shade on my lid is a good dupe for Mac’s Bitter shadow.  It is a pretty but seriously bright chartreuse shade.  There is no taming this color, so if you wear it, the other shades paired with it have to be bright enough to share the stage.

Get This Look:

I applied a thin layer of Urban Decay’s Primer Potion with my finger and Soft Ochre with a Sigma SS239.  Using a Louise Young LY38 brush, I blended Winkle into my crease.  Winkle is a Mac Pro matte, which are generally better than the typical Mac matte.  I’ve found Mac Pro mattes’ formula to be softer, nicely pigmented but sometimes powdery.  I darkened the outer corner a bit and formed the Outer V using Mac’s Cobalt, another Mac Pro.  Cobalt is deceiving because it applies much darker than it appears in the pan.

With a Mac239, I patted on INGLOT’s #59 on my lid and lightly blended it up to the blue.  Using the same brush, I lightly patted a very bright and sparkly Fyrinnae yellow shade on top of the INGLOT color just to add a bit of shimmer.  This step wasn’t necessary, but I like shimmer.  Since this look didn’t have enough color, I added a reddened purple (Purple Haze) on the top edge of Cobalt on the outer corner.  Purple Haze shadow is really pigmented and you get a lot on your brush even if you barely touch it.  I swirled the brush onto the back of my hand before applying it on my eye (a trick I learned from Lisa Eldridge, a professional MUA that has a fantastic YouTube channel).
