Classic festive eye makeup look

Hey everyone!

The festivities have just begun, and we now have back-to-back festivals till January- Durga Puja, Dussehra, Karwachauth for the married ladies, Diwali, bhai dooj, Guru Parv, Christmas, Lohri, etc. Long list yeah! And when you have so many festivals, managing jobs/ work and families can leave you with just a few minutes to get ready for parties on a lot of occassions. Happens with me too all the time.

I know this is very funny, but honestly, on a lot of days when I plan in advance- Oh, I’ll do this look today with this dress- boom! Something or the other will come up, leaving me with hardly any time for an elaborate eye makeup look 馃槢

Here’s my go-to festive eye makeup look which goes will ALL, like ALL Indian dresses.

Inglot Freedom System eyeshadow refill AMC Shine-44: Review, swatches, EOTD

Hieeee everyone!
This year is flying, isn鈥檛 it? January is on the verge of getting over, and it didn鈥檛 even sink in! Are you feeling the same too?
Today I鈥檓 reviewing the Inglot Freedom System square eyeshadow refill in the shade AMC Shine-44, a gorgeous green shade, and a supposed dupe for MAC Humid. Read on!
inglot amc shine 44 eyeshadow refill

About Inglot AMC Shine-44 eyeshadow: Paraben free formula. Not tested on animals.
Price: Rs. 300 for a 3.2g square refill pan (if you buy the round refill, you get ~1.6g of the product at the same price :P)
inglot amc shine 44 eyeshadow refill (1)

Packaging: The refill comes packed in a small, square box, and is sealed in a plastic sleeve, which is not re-usable. You will definitely need a palette to store these, as opposed to the round refills which come in re-usable plastic covers L
Ingredients: Not mentioned, but Inglot products are Paraben free.

Under flash

My take on Inglot AMC Shine-44 eyeshadow:The AMC Shine 44 eyeshadow is a beautiful moss green shade with subtle golden and green shimmer particles. It is a pigmented, smooth textured eyeshadow. The finish is a cross between pearly and shimmery finishes, not too shimmery. The shade transfers well to the lids, though for full intensity, a primer underneath is a must. It wears well for about 3 hours without a primer (that鈥檚 how I tested it), and does not crease or fade on my oily lids for about 2-3 hours. A primer beneath is a definite must for me!
The shade will suit all complexions.
Swatches: Left- without flash, Right- with flash
In the below pics, I have used the Inglot AMC shine 44 eyeshadow on the outer corners of the eyes, without a primer. On the inner 2/3rd of the eye is聽Maybelline Color Tattoo- Pomegranate Punk.

Pros of Inglot AMC Shine-44 eyeshadow:

路聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽 Smooth, pigmented shade
路聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽 Stays for a decent 3 hours without primer on my very oily lids

Cons of Inglot AMC Shine-44 eyeshadow: You need a palette to store these!
Verdict: Must-buy, if you love/ want a green eyeshadow. This one shade is a must for all eye make-up lovers!

Inglot Freedom System eyeshadow refill- AMC Shine 08: Review, swatches, EOTD

Hiya girls!
I had been on the lookout for a decent eye highlighter for my complexion, for the brow bone and the inner corners of the eyes.
Today I鈥檓 reviewing another eyeshadow refill from the Inglot Freedom System collection, shade AMC Shine-08.

inglot freedom system eyeshadow amc shine 08

inglot freedom system eyeshadow amc shine 08 review and swatch

Price: Rs. 300 for 1.8g round refill or 3.2g square refill pan
Packaging: The freedom system refills come packed in a small plastic case. The refill pan sits firmly in a groove in the case. These plastic cases are good to use if you keep them in a safe place in your vanity, but these are not always travel friendly.
Ingredients: Not mentioned anywhere.
My take on Inglot Freedom System eyeshadow refill- AMC Shine 08: It is a pale golden, milky eyeshadow with a hint of white in it. I鈥檇 rather call it a highlighting color, since on its own, the shade is way too light. Quite a unique shade it is! On a closer look, it has a pale taupe shade in the pan, but that does not translate to the skin. On swatching, it鈥檚 all whitish-golden 馃槢

Over a white base, it looks a bit more milky. On a black base (only on lid, not on the brow bone :P), the golden shade deepens, though it still doesn鈥檛 become that deep golden.
The texture is very smooth, and the golden particles are finely milled and well integrated into the powder. Pigmentation is also good, but since the shade is such, you may feel it鈥檚 bad, looking at the pics.
As a highlighter for the brow bone and inner corners of the eyes, the shade is perfect for all occasions. It will suit all complexions well.
Staying power is also good. With a base, it stays put for about 8 hours with minimal creasing (when used as an eyeshadow).
I have used this shade as a brow-bone highlighter in the below pic:

Pros of Inglot Freedom System eyeshadow refill- AMC Shine 08:
路聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽 Smooth texture, easy to blend
路聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽 Decently pigmented
路聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽 Perfect for inner corner and brow-bone highlighting

Subtle orange and red party eye make-up tutorial

Subtle orange and red party eye make-up tutorial

Howdy, girls!
So after a dearth of make-up tutorials on the blog for some time, here’s another tutorial this week.聽

Model- Sakshi 馃槢

I shared the tutorial for one of the looks that I created on her聽HERE聽yesterday.聽

This particular look was created for a wedding party, for days when we go to weddings of not-so-close people, and we don’t want too much drama on the lids. Ofcourse, if you have a wedding in the family, a little more drama is needed. But again, it all depends on your personal taste!

Products used:

1. A dull gold eyeshadow for inner corners of the eyes
2. An orange eyeshadow as an overall lid color
3. A burnt black eyeshadow for the outer corners of the lid (L’Oreal Paris Infallible eyeshadow- Burning Black
4. A matte red eyeshadow for the crease
5. A pale gold eyeshadow for the brow bone
6. A dark taupe eyeshadow for the lower lash line
7. Eyeliner and kohl
8. Eyelash curler
9. Mascara
10. Eyeshadow brush and eyeshadow blending brush

*Except shade-3, all shades have been picked up from the聽VOV 98-in-1 eyeshadow palette.

Swatches of eyeshadows used


orange and red party eye make-up tutorial

1. Start with clean, moisturised and primed lids. I used聽Inglot Eye Make-up base: 02聽(not in pic)

2. Apply a dull gold eyeshadow to the upper eyelid, from inner corner, extending upto the inner 1/3rd of the lid.

3. Apply a dull orange eyeshadow to the rest of the lid, upto the crease above.

4. Apply a burnt black eyeshadow to the outer corner of the lid, extending upto the outer half of the crease. Blend!

5. Now just above the crease, apply a matte red eyeshadow to the entire crease area, as shown in the pic. Blend well. This red eyeshadow has to peep-out of the lids, when the eyes are open. So the application will need to be done keeping in mind your eye’s shape. If you have hooded eyes, check out聽THIS聽post.

6. Apply a pale gold eyeshadow to the area under the brow. Also apply it to the inner corner of the eyes.

8. Line the upper and lower lash line. Blend the lower lash line with a dark taupe eyeshadow to create depth, and to get that soft, smudgey effect. Curl lashes and apply mascara.

Some more snapshots of the final look (clicked with flash light):

3. Apply a hint of matte black eyeshadow to the outer corner and crease (just a very tiny bit) and blend.

4. Apply a light silver eyeshadow to the inner corner of the eye. Apply a wash of the same color to the brow-bone area using soft strokes of a fluffy brush.

Title鈥 THE PINK CAT look.

Description鈥 These days I have seen many girls using neutrals, black,blues,purples,champagne etc. But I guess most of us have forgotten the most loved eye shade i.e pink in our palette. Even today while I was thinking about a look, I was done with the outer corners and was thinking of which color will look great inside and different at the same time. Having said that, I didn鈥檛 want to make the look repetitive or similar again. So I picked up a hot pink shade from my palette and I knew with the first glance itself that this is the shade I was looking out for. I then created a double wing and added blue to make the look more dramatic and fun. Finally, that鈥檚 how I got 鈥淭HE PINK CAT LOOK鈥
