I’m without a doubt one of the biggest Inglot Cosmetics Beauty junkies known to the makeup addiction clan!
I own roughly 45 lipsticks, 5 mascaras, 70 eye shadows, 10 foundations, 12 concealers, 8 blush colours and plenty more. That said, I’m pretty sure I can achieve about a 100 different looks with my collection!
Unfortunately, at this stage I can’t make a video of this just yet, but it is a work in progress and will be up soon.
Well let’s start!
First rule… Let’s not be basic!
I will be doing a day look. Most people immediately think a day look should be natural colours only. Well, to me blue and purple comes naturally I have really dry skin due to medication that’s supposed to help clear up your skin, therefore it is important to start with a *Primer.
After the primer has settled on my skin I will use my *Cream foundation in number 26. Cream based foundation works well with dry or dehydrated skin.
After the foundation, I would check to see if I have any blemishes or dark circles that I have/want to cover. I don’t normally have spots but I kind of always have darker circles under my eyes. I will fix this with a *yellow cream concealer. I’ll use it under my eye and blend it onto the top of my cheekbones and onto my eyelid just to use it as a base.
I will then set the concealer with the *Translucent Mattifying Press Powder and just slightly dust it over the other areas of my face.
I fill in my brows with the *348 Eye shadow shade, yes I know it’s almost black, well I do have black brows #giggles
Next step starting with my eye shadow, for the look I’m wanting to achieve, I wont really be working on the eyelid, but more as cut/crease Smokey effect. I ALWAYS use *351 as a base just to make blending other colours easier to work with – think of it like transition colour. I will use this over my whole lid and brow bone.
I have decided to use black and purple eye shadow, with a small fluffy brush. I’ll apply *348/dark grey eye shadow in the creases of my eye and blend it out and upwards, trying to keep my lid three quarters clear. Just to create more depth I add a bit of * 391/black eye shadow in the crease and just let it blend with the lighter base to create the Smokey effect.
Now you will see where the POP/WOW factor comes in. I love using shades of purple even when working on clients (depending on what they want). For the simple reason that purple goes with all eye colours, I decided on two shades of purple. A more glitter* 440/lilac for the inner corner of my eye that will continue on my bottom lash line all the way to the outer corner. My second purple will be rich in colour. I’ll then apply* 491/dark purple over my light purple from the outer corner of my eye moving inwards till about three quarters of the way.
I then apply *Volume & Waterproof mascara to finish of my eyes.
For my lips I mix *36/pastel purple and *34/pink together for a soft pastel pink purple look.
Lastly I want to contour my face and give it back its 3D features that were taken away by the foundation – remember that all foundations do that, since the whole idea is to get your face one colour. I’ll use the *34 Face blush on my cheekbones and a bit on my temples. Lastly, for a bit of dewy skin effect, I use *397/rose gold eye shadow as a high lighter above my cheekbones and on the bridge of my nose.
The reason I‘ve chosen this look? Simple – I was able to use my most favorite Inglot beauty products! They are truly amazing! My top 4 would definitely be the * cream foundation, *mascara, * blush and * translucent powder. I would have loved to provide you with my “Top 100 List” but alas, maybe in a future post 😉
My all-time much-loved thing about Inglot is the freedom system. Being able to create your own pallet with only the colours you need, is truly amazing! No one has the money to pay for things you will never be using.
Show me your favorite Inglot product/s and how you like to use them by using the hashtag #friendsofMelissani on Instagram or Facebook and stand a chance to be featured in my media accounts.
Oh and don’t forget…Have fun with it! Let’s not be basic <3
