INGLOT and a little R&R

I had five minutes left to my morning routine today to slap on some eye shadow and this what I came up with.

I wanted to try out some new goodies I got in the mail (holds head in shame).  Rock & Republic is a clothing line that had an expensive cosmetic line.  All of their products went on a ridiculous sale recently on Hautelook.  The sale was great ($8 for a shadow that originally cost $28!).  Ordinarily I would not have considered their products in the least.  The quality is really good and the size of the pan is a bit larger than Makeup Forever.

Get this look:

I started out by putting my go to Tete-a-Tint on my brow bone to act as a transition color.  I then put Vanilla under my brow as a highlight.  (Pictures of these shades are in my earlier posts.)

I applied MUFE #137 in my crease and blended it up.  This shade is a pretty medium plum shade with a hint of mauve.  It has a slight sheen to the finish.  I darkened my outer crease with R&R Wicked which is deeper plum shade.  For this post, I formed my Outer V with Mac’s Carbon eye shadow (matte black).  To the naked eye, Wicked was dark enough for the look, but it wasn’t coming across well in photos.

For the lid, I applied INGLOT’s #28.  This shade looks so gray in the picture, but it isn’t.  It is a pale icy blue.  Once applied, it sometimes looks pale lavender depending on the light.  (This shade is in the first INGLOT palette in my INGLOT swatch post.  Once you view it around other shades, you can see the blue.)

Midori

This bright eye is meant for Freedom Friday.  If you want a bolder look, choose a brighter purple for the crease instead of brown.

I only have a few of Sugarpill’s pressed shadows, but I enjoy using them.  These matte (semi-matte) shadows blend like a dream.

Looking at the picture of the shadow swatches, the colors appear to be a weird combo.  I picked MUFE #30 to blend into the crease and outer V because I wanted to tone down the bright lid colors.  It also has enough red in it to compliment the green.  (A good dupe is Mac’s Brown Script though it has a bit more yellow/orange undertone.)

Sugarpill’s Midori was applied to the inner two-thirds of the lid and blended into Afterparty for the outer two-thirds.  These colors are very pigmented and can easily look intense if applied with a heavy hand.

The outer V was deepened by mixing Mac’s Shadow Lady and Indian Ink.  You don’t need both of these colors.  Any dark purple or plum would work.  I mixed these colors on a whim because I didn’t fully plan this eye out ahead of time.

Nars Etrusque was put into the corner of my eye and blended up lightly.

Soft Copper Plum

This is a very simple look with a  pale copper shimmery shade on the lid and matte plums and purples in the crease.  It is a soft look, but my camera washes it out a bit.  (Stating I’m a novice at photography is an understatement!! )  I didn’t want to apply my makeup too heavy for the camera because I was just leaving the house for an appointment.

Tete-A-Tint is applied on the brow bone up to the brow.  My highlighter s applied lightly with Haux defining the crease.  I mix MUFE 39 and Poison Plum together to further define my crease, but I don’t completely cover up Haux.  Aztec Brick is applied on the lid and blended up and out to the crease and outer-third of the lid.  Aztec Brick was part of a Limited Edition MAC quad that I depotted.  Any copper color will do.  If your copper is too red, mix it with a gold shade.
