Look of the Day: Inglot #3

Hi, everyone! I'd apologize about all of the Inglot gushing lately, except I'm truly and unapologetically smitten and feel the need to preach! So here it is, the third and final installment in my Inglot Look of the Day series. Today's look features shimmery royal-toned eyes, plummy flushed cheeks, and a natural lip. Hopefully it inspires you to get bitten by the Inglot bug as well! 

For the eyes, I drew on three of the shades from my brand new Freedom System 5-pan palette. I started by applying a generous helping of Shine Eye Shadow #49 on the inner half of my lid. It really gives the most stunning antique gold glow! I added depth by sweeping Double Sparkle Eye Shadow #459 (a rich, cool taupe) along my crease and inserted a pop of colour with Double Sparkle Eye Shadow #494 (a bold royal purple) on the outer corner of my lid. I also applied #49 and #494 along more lower lash line for some extra drama. For liner, I carried on the Inglot theme, creating a thin stroke with the AMC Eyeliner Gel #89 and finished things off with a couple coats of BeneFit They're Real on upper and lower lashes. 

For the cheeks, I opted for Inglot Face Blush #54. It looks like an intimidating, glittery mauve in the pan, yet translates to such a wearable, natural luminous flush on the face! I also contoured my cheeks lightly with the Inglot HD Sculpting Powder #504

On the lips, I couldn't help but use Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Boy. It's such a gorgeous neutral lip that's a perfect complement for a bolder eye. It also has slight mauve undertones that mesh with the blush so nicely. I really love it! 

The Breakdown:

Foundation: Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet in 10 Beige
Concealer: BeneFit Fake-Up in Light (under eyes) and MAC Select Cover-Up NC20 (on blemishes and redness)
Powder: Soap & Glory One Heck of a Blot (lightly on t-zone) and Inglot Illuminizing Pressed Powder #402 (all over)

Contour: Inglot HD Sculpting Powder #504

Blush: Inglot Face Blush #54

Brows: Anastasia Brow Powder Duo in Taupe and Tinted Brow Gel in Caramel
Primer: Urban Decay Primer Potion Original Formula
Eye Shadows: Inglot Shine Eye Shadow#49 (on inner half of lid and inner half of lower lash line), Double Sparkle Shadow #459 (on the crease), and Double Sparkle Shadow #494 (on outer corner of lid and outer half of lower lash line) and the Body Shop Colour Crush Eye Shadow in Oh, Honey (as a highlight on brow bone and inner corners)

Eyeliner: Inglot AMC Eyeliner Gel #89
Mascara: BeneFit They're Real!

Lips: Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Boy

And a few more shots of the look:

I hope you have all enjoyed my Inglot Look of the Day series! My inner beauty geek has been totally stoked by digging into my growing Inglot stash and I haven't been let down by anything I've tried. I found this Look of the Day especially fun- it really made me feel like one part royal, one part badass. What gal (or guy) doesn't want that combo in their repertoire?!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  14. You did such a good job on this make up. I'm always afraid to use colors for the eyeshadows because I think I'll look like a clown. Great post.


  15. You never cease to amaze me with your awesome color combination skills!!! I've done gold and purple before, but definitely not as nicely blended and complicated the way you do it! You rock!
