I had summer on the brain with this look. Fresh glowy skin and a modern take on blue pastel eyes, which can be dangerously 1980s if not done right. On the lower lash line I used a peach color (Sugarpill Charmy, LE) to add a warm touch to the otherwise cool look.
I love layering blushes, and in this look I used two highly shimmery ones from NARS. When applied wet, the color is highly saturated. When applied the dry, the color is more sheer and unseen. In this case I used Fervor (bright girly pink and a dark aubergine) lightly swept on the cheeks to establish a base hue before layering Jubilation (peach and gold, mostly used for highlight on my skin tone) on top and all around the skin to create a nice glow.
The Inglot body powder/eyeshadows/loose pigments/whatever the hell else NEVER EVER DISAPPOINT ME. I'd say Inglot is in my top 5 preferred brands. I picked up most of these colors at The Makeup Show NYC last year when we toured the Inglot studio on James Vincent and Orlando Santiago's Beauty Tour. Mamma Mia was running on Broadway at the time (probably still is TBH) and Inglot was involved in their makeup design process. The colors were so bright yet not garish. Shopping there was akin to being a kid in a candy store, but I usually feel like that when makeup shopping.
I have never seen a more beautiful or more matte pastel cornflower blue such as the one used on my lash line. I don't think I'd worn these colors prior to this because I didn't have the right combo in mind. But with warmer days ahead something guided my hand to open the Inglot drawer on my vanity and create a soft pastel eye. Big ups to the random Stilazzi eyeshadow I got as a sample from Frends Beauty a long time ago for being the best shader color I could have used on this look. Pale greyish-taupe, a couple sweeps give some definition at the crease without detracting from the colorful Inglot products.
In hindsight I wish I'd used something glossier on the lips to reflect the light because in photos the lips appear a bit flat. However, the DHC Lip Cream is one of the most moisturizing balms I've ever used and sometimes you just need moisture instead of a lip color/glossy finish. The lanolin ingredient doesn't make it vegan-friendly, but if that holds no water to your lip balm quest then look no further than getting them on Amazon in a 2-pack. In the wintertime? Forget about it. Supple lips for days.
Side note: I love how my purple hair has faded! I'm letting the color go instead of retouching it because I want to see how my hair looks without the dye to reveal the blonde base underneath. But the purple is still holding on for its dear life in the form of a pale lavender, which I adore.
