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.
