THE PERFECT CREASE COLOURS – MAC TEXTURE & INGLOT 383 EYE SHADOWS

THE PERFECT CREASE COLOURS - MAC TEXTURE & INGLOT 383 EYE SHADOWSHello!

I don’t know about you guys, but I think it’s pretty hard to find that perfect eyeshadow for your crease. I’m talking about that neutral yet warm toned colour that makes every eye colour looks amazing. I see a lot of celebs like Kim Kardashian and beauty gurus like Desi Perkins wearing these particular warm eyeshadow tones on their eyes, but I was never able to find the perfect shade for me, until now. So in this blogpost I’m going to show you my secret to my most recent everyday eye make-up routine! This eyeshadow combo stole my heart and I can’t wait to share it with you all. If you’re on the lookout for a more vamped up neutral eyeshadow look, keep reading!

 

THE PERFECT CREASE COLOURS - MAC TEXTURE & INGLOT 383 EYE SHADOWS THE PERFECT CREASE COLOURS - MAC TEXTURE & INGLOT 383 EYE SHADOWS So, the two eyeshadows that are going to steal the show this time are MAC Texture and Inglot 383 (please make cute names Inglot, numbers are so boring!). I got these two eyeshadows in Thessaloniki, both with 25% discount. I paid only €3,50 for the Inglot shadow! Crazy stuff, especially if you consider how freaking pigmented this eyeshadow is. Texture is a medium, warm toned brown with a satin finish. It has a lil’ bit of a sheen going on, but nothing major. 383 is a bright, burnt orange colour and has a totally matte finish. Very pretty! I’m not going to show you any swatches on my hand this time, but that’s because I’m going to show you the shadows directly on my lid.

 

THE PERFECT CREASE COLOURS - MAC TEXTURE & INGLOT 383 EYE SHADOWSBare lids for comparison! Here I just applied some Primer Potion from Urban Decay.

 

THE PERFECT CREASE COLOURS - MAC TEXTURE & INGLOT 383 EYE SHADOWSI’m starting off with a light, matte shade as a base. Here I used W.O.S. from the Naked Basics palette on a flat shader brush (the Zoeva 234 Luxe Smoky Shader). This will even out your lids without adding any major colour.

 

THE PERFECT CREASE COLOURS - MAC TEXTURE & INGLOT 383 EYE SHADOWSNext up you need to define your crease slightly with a warm, light brown colour. Here I used the colour Stark from the Naked Basics 2 palette and the 227 Luxe Soft Definer from Zoeva to apply it with. This brush is awesome for applying an eyeshadow colour lightly in your crease and blends it out perfectly. It looks like a real natural shadow this way, instead of an eyeshadow.

 

THE PERFECT CREASE COLOURS - MAC TEXTURE & INGLOT 383 EYE SHADOWSNow it’s time for our perfect crease colours to shine. First of all, I’m adding MAC Texture to the look with a 228 Luxe Crease brush from Zoeva (yeah, I love these Zoeva brushes, check out my review here!). This warm, medium brown colour is perfect as a crease colour, because it’s not too dark. It looks still fairly natural, but because of the warm undertone, it doesn’t look like a natural shadow anymore. We’re slowly building up our look! I recommend adding this look with a big pencil brush, because that way you will have a lot of control over your eyeshadow application, which is a must when working with darker colours.

 

THE PERFECT CREASE COLOURS - MAC TEXTURE & INGLOT 383 EYE SHADOWSAnd last, but definitely is the Inglot 383 eyeshadow colour. I applied this with the 230 Luxe Pencil brush from Zoeva. This brush is pretty small, which makes it very easy to apply eyeshadow to only a certain part of your eyes. I concentrated this orange colour in my outer-v and underneath my eyes to make it a little bit more smokey and colourful. See how the orange colour makes my eyes pop?

 

THE PERFECT CREASE COLOURS - MAC TEXTURE & INGLOT 383 EYE SHADOWSThe finished result! I added some highlighter, eyeliner, eyeliner pencil in my waterline, mascara & false lashes and this is how it turned out. I love this look and I’ve been wearing it non-stop lately since I got these two eyeshadows in Thessaloniki. I think they make a great combo, because they both have the same warm undertone (yet they are totally different colours) and the pigmentation is cray cray good. These eyeshadows last the whole day on my eyes and they aren’t chalky or powdery at all. Love it and definitely recommend them both!

I love making collages, so that’s why I wanted to make this one for ya. Love the transformation!

 

THE PERFECT CREASE COLOURS - MAC TEXTURE & INGLOT 383 EYE SHADOWSAnd this is a full face picture! As you can see, although the orange colour can look pretty intimidating, when you’re actually wearing it, it looks very natural. It brings just a little bit more warmth to your eyes without being too much. And it makes blue eyes pop like crazy, because it’s a very contrasting colour with blue. Just imagine this look with a tanned skin…

That’s it for today’s blogpost. I hope you enjoyed reading about my new eyeshadow discovery and I inspired you to start wearing warmer crease colours as well. I know warm colours can be tricky on some skin tones, but I truly believe that these two colours will work on a loooot of peeps, even if you’re naturally more cool toned. I think these two colours look especially good with a tan, so you will definitely see me rocking these colours in the Spring and Summer as well! Have a good day guys and I talk to you later!
