This look is all about metallic green and golden eyes, shimmery coral contoured cheeks, and a natural lip. I find it to be another fun Summer-to-Fall sort of look, as I was inspired by both lush, tropical locales as well as autumn woodsy tones. Either way, the look is warm, subtly smokey, and chock-full of my new Inglot goodies!
For the eyes, I started by applying Inglot Pearl Eye Shadow #414 all over my lid, blending up to the crease. #414 is a gorgeous metallic mossy green with a subtle brownish duochrome. Super unique! I blended out the crease by adding some of Inglot Shine Eye Shadow #49 (a warm, olive gold) and popped some of #49 along my lower lash line for some extra contrast. I finished with a neutral deep brown liner on my upper lash line and lower waterline and a couple coats of volumizing waterproof mascara (Revlon Lash Potion Waterproof- one of the best drugstore mascaras I've tried!).
For the cheeks, I started by applying some of Inglot HD Sculpting Powder #504, a pale cool taupe brown, along my cheek bones to contour. It's ultra subtle and really can't be overdone! Works wonderfully on my fair skin. I next pulled out my Inglot Fusion Blush & Illuminator #203, which is a pretty semi-matte coral blush with a corresponding peachy gold highlighter. I applied the blush to the apples of my cheeks, blending upwards, and tapped the illuminating shade on my cheekbones for a touch of glow.
As you can see, the HD Scultping Powder shapes my cheeks ever so slightly (it blends like a dream, which makes it so subtle) and the Fusion Blush &Illuminator gives the prettiest glow! Plus the colour really wears all day- still looked perfect in the evening time :)

And a few more shots of the look:
Once again, my new Inglot products have not disappointed. I likely sound like a broken record at this point, but I feel the need to reiterate that the shades are beautifully pigmented, blend like a dream, and wear flawlessly all day! I think that the HD Sculpting Powder #504 is going to be perfect for my super fair winter skin (as it's even more subtle than my Kevin Aucoin Sculpting Powder) and the Pearl Eye Shadow #414 will be a perfect festive shade over the holiday season- which is sneaking up, eek!
Hope you're all having a fabulous weekend :)
