Inglot: Blue And Green Eye Look



I thought I'd show an eye makeup look that is similar to the Teardrops On Georgette post. The difference is that I had used two kinds of blue eyeshadows (one light, one dark) for that one. This one here uses the same method but instead of dark blue, I used a dark green.

Inglot L: AMC Eye Shadow 68; R: Eye Shadow Matte 340

This is also a good opportunity to say something about the lighter blue eyeshadow - Inglot AMC Eye Shadow 68. I had said last month that its pigmentation fell rather short of expectations. Well, it looks like the pigmentation has improved with more use. It has indeed taken many uses and it looks like the I've finally gotten past the imprint.

Inglot AMC Eye Shadow 68 (three/four swipes each): Then (L) and Now (R)

Anyway, back to the look. I've been wearing this kind of
eye look quite a lot lately. All that I needed to do for variation was change the colour combinations and the style of the bottom eyelining. If the colours look heavy to you, well, with the way my eyelids fold, most of the colour would disappear under the fold when I open my eyes fully. See image right.

The eyelining for the top lash line is conventional. It is the bottom lash line that gets the wing-ed lining. I featured this method once before with ELLIS FAAS eyeshadows: Eye Look With Light IV.

I used:


L-R
Inglot AMC Eye Shadow 68 - intense cornflower blue with shimmer (palette - top left)
Inglot Eye Shadow Matte 340 - matte midnight green (palette - bottom right)
Inglot Duraline
GOSH Velvet Touch Eye Liner - Black Ink
Josie Maran GOGO Instant Natural Volume Argan Mascara (received from Jeanie)

L-R: Inglot AMC Eye Shadow 68, Inglot Eye Shadow Matte 340, Inglot Eye Shadow Matte 340+Duraline, GOSH Black Ink

What I did after applying eyeshadow primer:

Upper lid

- dark green eyeshadow along the whole lash line and higher (in my case, where the lid folds and almost disappears)

- light blue eyeshadow just above the dark green

- used the Duraline with the dark green eyeshadow for liquid eyelining

- wing-ed it (the wing effect is subtle because it's green on green)

- tightlined with the black pencil liner

Lower lash line

- repeat the liquid eyelining step with the Duraline and the dark green eyeshadow

- wing it, ie. a reverse of how it would be for the upper lash line (avoid connecting this green eyelining with that of the upper lash line)

- light blue eyeshadow on the dark green eyelining to give it some shimmer

Curled lashes and applied mascara.


Tip: If you have problems with keeping a neat gap in the eyelining between the upper and the lower lash line, use a cotton bud with eyemakeup remover to 'clean' up the gap.

I'm very happy you like the mirrored wing, Nicole. Thanks! The eyeshadows are really great, especially the mattes. They're fantastic to work with. Do get yourself some if you have the chance. :)

Gorgeous look with this mirrored wing! I love these wings (yours truly needs more practice to get this result) and I think the blue and green eye shadows look really great on you. You can make a lot of combos with the 4 pans, so very good buy.

Hi, KTee! I'm pleased to hear that. Thank you! Aah, the wings, you're right. It's all down to practice and keeping your hand steady by resting your elbow on something sturdy. You'll do fine! Yeah, I'm getting a lot of use out of just these four eyeshadows. That's even better value for my money. Yay! :D

Great look! I have a nice big 10-shadow Inglot palette that has very similar colors, if not some of the same. I love how pigmented they are! I was a little wary as to whether they are cruelty-free or not & was unable to find a solid answer... do you know? Also, do you plan on doing a review on the Josie Maran mascara? I'm considering purchasing this... Thanks so much! <3

@Honey Bomb
Thank you, Honey Bomb! Oh, 10-shadow palette.......how nice!! I do wish I had gotten that one now that I know how great the eyeshadows are.

As far as I know, they do consider themselves a cruelty-free company. I found this website that published a statement from Inglot about their policy. I'm not affiliated to this website and I can't establish when this statement was issued by Inglot. Nevertheless, I hope this helps. :)

Well, I have only just started using the Josie Maran mascara. I had no specific plans to do a review on it but I just might do one (no promises). Please give me a bit of time though, so that I can test it out properly. :)

You're most welcome, my dear! :)

Wow I like how you winged & smudged the lower lash line...very different. Looks like that blue eyeshadow is a late bloomer :). Good that it's not useless afterall, coz it's a gorgeous shade.

Thank you! Given the reputation of Inglot eyeshadows, I was at first quite surprised with its apparent lack of pigmentation. Well, it's great that it's showing its true 'colours' now. :)
