Two colorful looks

I guess I was in a colorful mood this weekend!  Sometimes I really just want to wear color so I went with that!  This first look I did because I've been staring at these colors in my Inglot palette thinking that I NEEDED to use them together.  I just get so many color combo and placement ideas in my head that it takes me a while to get around to them haha.
you can see the three colors sooo well here!  

can you see how these colors almost look shiny?  These are matte colors (except the highlight) but they're sooo buttery that this is how they come across

I really liked this one!  I used
Inglot shadows:
379 M (cool toned purple on lid and under eye)
392 M (warm purple in crease)
361 M (coral color above crease)
395 P (highlight color)
Bobbi Brown gel liner "Black Ink"
L'oreal Extra Volume Collagen "Blackest Black"

On my lips:
MAC "Pink Friday" lipstick
NYX Megashine lipgloss "Beige"

And then I'd been wanting to play with similar colors in different finishes... if that makes sense.  I have the Inglot pigment 43 and the eyeshadow 384, which are very similar in color, but the pigment is shimmery and the shadow is matte.  Here are the colors
I have a weird crease thing under my eyebrow that really gets accentuated when I do shimmery colors all the way from my lid to my brow so I wanted to do a shimmery color on my lid, a matte color up to under my brow, then the highlight color.  And here's what I came up with

I don't know if you can see the different finishes here or not


This look kinda reminds me of an alligator.  There's something reptilian about it...

What I used:
Inglot pigment 43 and 384 M shadow
NYX "Black" eyeshadow
MAC "Vanilla" pigment as a highlight
Bobbi Brown Gel liner "Black Ink"
L'oreal Extra Volume Collagen "Blackest Black"

Viva Glam Gaga
NYX Megashine Lipgloss "Pink Frost"

And that was my weekend makeup!  I hope you all have a great week!!  Thanks so much for checking this out!!!


  1. Wow, these are both just gorgeous!! I really, really love the first one and I HAVE to try this! I have had a hard time using some of these colors and I love that you used them together and they look awesome! I just love 384M, it has to be one of my favorites lol.

  2. Both of these are gorgeous! The first look is one I've had in my head too, but with orange instead of the coral! Very pretty! Your color combos are awesome!

    Pink and purple <3 always a win with me
    and that green! Eeeep! I love coming to your blog. It always makes me makeup happy.

  4. I'd love to see a step by step tutorial of how you did the 2nd look - its so pretty!

  5. Love both looks, but the first looks a bit like a sunset....but like when the sun has already set (if that makes sense, lol).

  6. Oh wow! I love them both- you are right about the green one being 'reptilian' but it looks super great how you did it! I love your bangs so much, you really look fantastic!

  7. wow the first colour combo is stunning, & I really love the alligator one!

  8. Love both of them, but the first is my favorite; it's purple! I've got to get some Inglot!

  9. I immediately had to copy the first look. Yowza, I can't wait to wreak havoc doing my grocery shopping with this one! Thanks for the inspiration, you gorgeous gal, you!

  10. @Dani: yes, you do have to do this haha, it'll look incredible on you! And I don't use 384 nearly as much as I thought I would! Weird.
    @Meme: haha yours will be better! Thank you though! I love your color combos too!
    @Kattatonic: aw, thank you!
    @Liz: I think I can do that for you!! It's actually a really easy look!
    @AngieBee: thank you! I agree! It reminded me of that too!
    @Amalia: aw, thanks! Yeah, I'm pretty sure I like the bangs too!
    @Ashii: thank you!
    @Toshia: yes, my friend, you do need some Inglot!
    @Karen: aw, awesome! I'd love to see pictures of it! Go knock 'em dead!
