INGLOT: Is It Spring Yet?


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.

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.

Eyes to Kill Intense: Airy Jade

Here is another look using the new Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill Intense shadows (ETK).  I’m pushing the boundaries for my definition of ‘work appropriate’.  This look is bright and came close to drag in person.  The camera softens the colors a bit.  This look can look tamer by not taking the shadows up so high.

I used the same technique to apply this cream-hybrid shadow as I did with the Khaki Pulse look.  I scraped some of the product out using the back of my nail and placed it on the flat side of the hard plastic insert.  I dampened a small concealer brush (Sigma SS194) to apply the shadow to my lid.

I had no idea where I was going when I started this look out.  It turned out pretty cute.

After priming my lid with Nars Shadow Primer, I applied Indian Ink to my outer corner and blended it into my crease using a Laura Mercier Eye Crease Brush.   (By the way, this brush is fabulous.  It is a cross between the Mac 217 and 219.)  I softened the outer edges and blended the color into my crease to about a third of the way in.  Using the same brush (cleaned off) I took Parfait Amour to the rest of my crease and fade the inside edges of Indian Ink.

Using the same Laura Mercier brush (cleaned off again), I applied Nocturnelle to the outer edge of the Indian Ink shade.  With a dampened Sigma SS194, I applied ETK No. 10 to my lid.  I used Parfait Amour to soften the edges of the blue shade.  With a short shader brush, I applied highlight shade, which is a very pigmented cream colored Inglot shade.

I applied a dark purple eyeliner using a Makeup Forever pencil.  This isn’t my favorite purple, but the formula is okay.  It looks dark, but doesn’t apply dark enough for me.  You can hardly see it on my lid, but the ETK shade is quite bright.  I tightlined using an Inglot matte black gel liner with a SS266 brush.  I had a hard time getting this product to wash off.  It took several attempts.

Today I’m using a Giorgio Armani foundation free sample.  The shade I got is too dark for me now, but may match me in the summer time.
