Two weeks ago I informed (post) you of INGLOT Cosmetics new venture of hosting makeup classes for consumers and pro-artists. Thursday, July 28, 2011, I had the opportunity to attend a Press Preview of their Day-to-Night class.
This class was taught by their Resident Artist, Brooklyn. He’s a former MAC Cosmetics artist, and knows his stuff. He’s super nice too. He is always a great help whenever I visit the INGLOT Chelsea Market location.
The class, since it was a preview, was quick. I’d say it took no more than 30 minutes (if that). It also gave novices the oportunity to see how easy it is to take a look from Day-to-Night in just minutes. Brooklyn used the new Rainbow Palette INGLOT has.
Tips from Brooklyn
Sweep a light color eyeshadow that’s close to your skintone from your brow bone down to your lid.
Take another color similar in shade, using a fluffy brush, sweep that shade across your crease.
Using another (slightly darker) shadow (the color of your choosing) he used purple. Apply that color to the outer 2/3 of your lid and blend. The color should just be a light flush, and not packed on.
Using a pencil brush, take a dark color (he used a darker purple) and place one dot on the lid at the tear duct, and another on the outer-v.
Using a blending brush, blend out the dots up into the crease. It creates a smokey eye without the racoon effect.
Line your lashline.
Never apply blush directly to the apples of cheeks. Start from jawline by temple and circle around. Dot the rest of the blush on apples of cheeks to ensure a light, natural flush of color is applied.
Making Your Lips Ready for the evening
Line lips with a darker shade of liner than your lip color.
Apply a multi-dimensional gloss, like INGLOT’s AMC gloss to make lips look fuller.
