I stopped by Inglot the other day because I wanted to make up another palette but I just didn't know where to start so I decided to try again another day. In the meantime, it felt strange to leave without buying something so I picked up an eyeshadow (#379) which is a periwinkle shade and is matte. I think it looks like a matte version of Satellite Dreams from MAC but correct me if I'm wrong.
I really love the colour but since it's so cold and a bit dreary in Melbourne at the moment, I thought I'd use it in a bit of a darker look. To do this I just used the colour over a black base and I loved the result and have been wearing a lot of my bright blues, purples and greens this way. It always amazes me how different a shade can look depending on what you layer it over.
Check out the swatch below:
The swatch on the left is the shadow on its own and on the right it's swiped over a black base.
Here's the look that I came up with:
Here's what I used:
MAC Blackground Paint Pot all over the lid just up to the crease and avoiding the inner corner
Inglot #379 eyeshadow all over the lid just up to the crease
MAC Smoke and Diamonds eyeshadow on inner corner of lid
MAC Nylon eyeshadow around tear duct
Inglot matte black eyeshadow (sorry don't know the number) on the outer v and slightly into the crease
MAC Soft Brown eyeshadow to blend out the crease
Rimmel Sexy Curves Mascara on top and bottom lashes
Rimmel Exaggerate liquid eyeliner on top lashline
Guerlain Terracotta Loose Powder Kohl in Noir on the waterline
I also brought the black eyeshadow onto the bottom lashline and topped it with the periwinkle shade eyeshadow.
I wore this look to an engagement party the other night but I just added some silver around the inner corner and added some fake lashes to kick the drama up a notch. If I were to try this again the only thing I would skip is the loose kohl on the waterline because you might notice that I have some of it on my eyeball in some pictures. Lol that sounds gross but it's actually really hard to tightline with loose powder kohl without getting it in your eye!
