My report from my visit to the new Inglot-store is already online and I couldn't leave empty handed, now could I? A sweet make up artist gave me a new look, based on my skin tone and eyes -- it turns out I'm a cool type. I usually go for the usual black eyeliner and red lips, but I've been thinking to experiment a bit more with make up lately. This is a nice start to do so.

I set together a palette with the eyeshadows the make up artist used to create the look in the first picture:
- A peachy / salmon color: N° 047
- A metallic silver: N° 152
- A matte pink color: N° 356
If you want to create a soft look, be careful. Because the eyeshadows are so pigmented, your eyes can look as if they are done heavily on purpose quite quickly. Unless you like them done that way, of course.
I also got this dark purple eyeliner gel and brush, which is a whole new thing for me. I usually use pitch black eyeliner and an eyeliner pen for my looks, but my sister swears that using these type of brushes and gels are much more pleasant to work with.
- Dark purple eyeliner gel: N° 75
In the goodie bag, I also found a nail polish and brown lipliner. Since I have artificial nails and never use brown lipliner, I donated these two goodies to my mom. And she was happy, happy, happy!
- Pink nail polish: N° 897
- Brown lipliner: N° 854
To create this look, I applied the salmon / peachy color on the inner part of my eyes. I then used the shimmery silver color on the rest of my eyelids. In the crease of my eyes, I applied the matte pink eyeshadow and blended it with the rest of the colors just a teeny tiny bit. And last but not least, I applied some purple eyeliner and mascara for a stronger effect.
So, what do you think?
I'm a total beauty amateur but I think this look could have been worse, lol. Practice is key, so that's what I'll do. I'm really having fun with it!
