Madd Style Cosmetics: Death Star Drama

Hi hi hello!  :)

Recently I posted a look in the Madd Style Cosmetics Facebook Fan Page (click here to request to join, if you're not already part of the fun!) and the lovely Barbara requested that I do a tutorial for it.  Low and behold is the tutorial! 

If you'd like to find out how I achieved this look:

EOTD: Golden Inglot

Last night I had to go back to work for a couple of hours to do something and I decided to put on some makeup for the occasion!  I find that I haven't been wearing makeup to work as much as I had at one point in time--but inspiration caught me yesterday and I couldn't help myself.

My "neutral" Inglot palette has been sitting out on my computer desk these past few days and I think that was the main inspiration for this look.  Especially, considering, all of these colours came from that palette!!  What I ended up liking about this look is that I mixed some cool taupes/browns with a warm lid colour and I think the effect was kinda nice.  I do wish, however, that I had a warmer duct highlight.  I think that might have helped to pull it together a bit more.

Here was the result:


So what did I use?  Well let me tell you!

  • The All Natural Face Magic Eyeshadow Primer
  • Inglot's 363 Matte in the crease (it's a grey taupe) and outer lid
  • Inglot's 419 Matte applied to the lid (a neato metallic antique gold)
  • Inglot's 329 Matte (dark brown) applied to the outer lid and deepest part of the crease
  • Inglot's 395 Pearl applied to the duct and below the brow
  • A mixture of 363 and 329 on the lower lash line
  • A bit of Inglot's 64 AMC at both lash lines (applied with a push liner brush to just darken the lash roots)
  • A tiny bit of Inglot's 390 Matte (a light beige) to blend more in the crease
  • Gabriel Color Mascara in "Black"
And blend blend blend!

Thanks for dropping by!!  If you own any Inglot colours, which ones are your favorite?

EOTD: Steely Inglot

Hi hi!

Yesterday evening I saw the new Superman (Man of Steel) movie and was inspired to use some Inglot colours and do something "steely" for the occasion.  Here's what I came up with!


I always get excited when I find a good reason to use a bunch of my Inglot colours.  They are such a joy to work with!  This look also contributed to me being able to use some of my newest brushes (and I really need to put together a post soon showing you all some of my recent new favorite brushes!).

Here is a list of the products used:

  • Eyeshadow Primer (I'm not going to say which brand because I recently have come to suspect that they sell their primer as "vegan" when it isn't!)
  • NYX Eyeshadow Base in "White"
  • Inglot 376 Matte (dark grey) applied to the crease
  • Inglot 501 D.S (light matte grey with sparkles) applied above 376 to blend out the dark grey
  • Inglot 451 Pearl (metallic gunmetal) applied to the lid
  • Inglot 318 Matte (white) applied under the brow
  • The duct is a mixture of 318 Matte and 501 D.S.
  • A tiny bit of Inglot's 349 Matte (a taupey brown) through the crease
  • Inglot 65 AMC (black with silver sparkles) on the outer lid and outer lower lash line.  I also smudged this colour a bit along the upper lash line.
  • The lower lash line is 451 Pearl for the most part
  • Urban Decay 24/7 liner in "Zero" to line the upper and lower waterlines
  • Gabriel Color Mascara in "Black" applied to the upper and lower lashes
And that's that!  Have you seen the new Superman?  What makeup did *you* wear for the occasion?  :)
