So today, we woke up to Snow. Not nasty ice, not sleet, actual fluffy snow!!! Well bust out the cashmere and smokey eye and let’s go! I used some new items in this look that I have picked up recently and found a new love. The Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks. Why haven’t I tried these before?! I got the color Native which is a pretty pinky nude and the formula of these blew me away. They are so creamy and moisturizing. Because it was hella cold today, moisture was definitely on the menu! I need more….like now! Anyway, here is the look I created with some new Inglot shadows I got at IMATS. I LOVE Inglot shadows but it’s too much of a hassle to pry them out of the pan to get the name of them. Plus, the names are just numbers and impossible to remember. If you are really interested in a color, let me know and I’ll pry it out of the pan. Just for you!
Essence I Heart Stage Shadow Base
Covergirl Bombshell Shine Shadow in Platinum Club
Maybelline Color Tattoo Pigment in Barely Brazen
Mally Evercolor Liner in Onyx
Benefit Bad Gal Lash Mascara
Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara
I primed my eyes with Essence I **Heart** Stage eyeshadow base to give an even canvas to start with. To intensify the grey in the Inglot shadow I used on the lid I put down Covergirl Bombshell Shine Shadow in Platinum Club as a base color from lash line to the crease. I used a sparkly blueish-grey all over the lid and blended it out with a satin cornflower blue. Then I used a matte midtone brown from one of their trio pans to blend out the blue. As a browbone and inner corner highlight I wanted something sparkly so I used Maybelline Color Tattoo Pigment in Barely Brazen. I smudged out the Mally Evercolor Eyeliner in Onyx with more of the blue-grey shade for a smokey effect near the lash line.
Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation

NYX Push Up Bra for Eyes
For the Face, I wanted a fresh dewy look since it was SO cold and my skin has been quite dry. Not to mention my allergies and sinuses have been going nuts and the undereye circles needed some extra manpower. Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation is a FAB dewy finish foundation. Rimmel: If you’re reading this, start selling this stuff in America! It’s one of my faves. Like I mentioned, the undereye area needed some extra attention with the Wake Me Up Concealer and the pink toned Benefit Oh La Lift for some extra oomph! I set it with the ELF Mineral Concealer. Since I like the finish and color match of the Rimmel foundation, I stuck with a light dusting of the Balm Sexy Mama powder just to make sure nothing moved. The Inglot blush I used is similar to MAC’s Well Dressed but slightly less pink, if you’re familiar. It gives a great, ‘I just came out of the snow’ look even when you’ve been sitting on the couch for 3 hours watching Law & Order: SVU….not that I do that or anything….Hoola Bronzer to warm up the face and the GORGEOUS Becca Highlight completed the face. Get you one of the Becca highlighters, y’all. I promise you won’t regret it!
