Tropical Sunset Eye Makeup Tutorial

Inglot Cosmetics Makeup Tutorial

Even though I prefer keeping my makeup as minimal as possible in the summer, every once in awhile I have an occasion when my newly acquired skill of applying winged eyeliner comes in handy. When such an occasion occurs I love experimenting with bright, nature-inspired colors that bring a new twist to my entire look. Let’s say it’s a formal occasion and I’m wearing a long white dress: I’ll most likely wear emerald green or deep purple eyeshadow. When I’m wearing dark colored clothes I also love creating contrast by adding a few unexpected eye shadow colors to the mix. Today I’m using products from Inglot Cosmetics newest line to create this topic sunset inspired look that I wore at one of the Hamptons’ charitable parties.

Step 1. When I’m working with bright eyeshadows, I prefer applying them after my eyebrow and lipstick makeup is done. In doing so, I can see how much I need to blend the eyeshadow so it doesn’t look “too much.” I also have my foundation in place, but you can apply it after your eye makeup in case your dark eyeshadow falls off.

Step 2. Using a large eyeshadow brush, apply beige non-shiny eyeshadow on your upper lid and under the eyebrow. It will be a “canvas” for the upcoming eyeshadow build-up.

Step 3. Using a smudge brush, pick up dark brown eyeshadow and paint a line starting from the outer corner of the eye and moving on top of the crease. Make the top line thicker by outlining it a few times.

Step 4. With the same brush, pick up plum eyeshadow and paint a parallel line starting from the middle of the eyelid and going on a diagonal towards the crease. Using an eyeshadow blending brush, blend two tones together.

Step 5. With a smudge brush, pick up orange eyeshadow and paint a line from the inner corner of the eye toward the crease. Using an eyeshadow blending brush, blend three tones together.

Step 6. With an angled brush, pick up a tiny amount of eyeliner gel and apply it as winged eyeliner.

Step 7. Apply three layers of mascara. The one I used is called Inglot Long For Mascara and I couldn’t find it at any online stores, but if you see it around definitely give it a try—it smooth like butter and very long-lasting.

Step 8. Using a concealer brush, pick up some plum eyeshadow and mix it with Duraline solution. Apply the mix on top of lower lashes. Using the same brush, evenly distribute eye shadows that fall down from your lower lashes to outline your lower lid.

Step 9. If needed, apply concealer and setting powder to finish the look and make under eye area smooth.

    I did not expect it was that easy! Great job on that! Love the tip on putting your lipstick and defining your eyebrows first before doing the eyes for you to have a nice blend–this is something I will keep in mind. Thanks for sharing! xx

    • Yes, this tutorial is very straight to the point. The colors of Inglot eyeshadows are so gorgeous – you really don’t need to apply that much or too many layers.

      When it comes to makeup products order, I do like applying the lipstick first every once in a while – it makes color matching so much easier!
