Eye of the Day: Sterling Atmosphere


Picking things back up with the Inglot eyeshadows here, I have been wanting to use the blue shade shown in this look for the LONGEST time. Thankfully I was struck with some inspiration the other day and this GORGEOUS look was born.

If you have been wondering about Inglot eyeshadows and whether or not they’re worth it, I will 1,000% tell you they are! Half the price of MAC eyeshadows and you get more bang for your buck. Let’s not forget to mention the quality is impeccable and I feel that they have a different range of colors from MAC; more unique shades.

For my friends who do not have access to MAC, you can recreate this look entirely with Inglot eyeshadows by replacing MAC’s Malt with Inglot’s #390 Matte. 😉


How You Can Recreate This Look:

  • NARS Eyeshadow Primer as a base
  • Inglot #420 (inner half of lid and lower lashline)
  • Inglot #451 (outer half of lid into outer v slightly)
  • MAC Malt (crease)
  • MAC Blanc Type (blend out harsher edges of crease)
  • Smashbox Gel Liner in Black
  • Maybelline Illegal Length Waterproof Mascara in Black
  • Laura Mercier Brow Defining Gel in ‘Fair’
  • Prestige Clear Brow Gel
  • “Maybe…” synthetic false eyelashes from InkyMinkyLashes.com

  1. Hi! What MAC shadows are 420 and 451 comparable to? Just wondering if I can recreate this look with products I already own…

    1. Hi Jessica!
      I would compare 420 to MAC’s Electra, but 420 is a little bit more blue in tone, so you could mix it with something like Vellum to get more of the blue tones in there. 451 is a darker navy blue, but comes off more like MAC’s Knight Divine! 😉

  2. Did you see that Laura Mercier has a new Artist Palette for Spring 2014? I guess it’s only available at Nordstrom’s. It’s more expensive because of the mascara and Caviar stick. The colors are better. I’ll pass,but for anyone that doesn’t have the first or second Artist palettes, it would be a nice edition to their makeup collection. 🙂

      1. Quite a few repeats. Just a couple new shades. She puts beautiful dark matte colors in this one. I believe a few of them where in the first Artist Palette. She has a lovely new purple e/s in the palette that I wish you could buy as a single. She also put Sable back in. Love that e/s! So much better than Copperplate. 🙂

  3. This look is Fab. I have been waiting for you to come up with some looks using Inglot eyeshadows. I absolutly love their eyeshadows.

    1. Hi Paris! I responded to your email question, but it appears we’ve been having some email issues on our end with messages not getting out. But definitely, an Inglot directory will be added to the site soon! 😉

  4. Hi Z 😉
    I’m soooo happy you posted about INGLOT!!!
    And this looking is super goegeous!
    I hope you’ll post more eyeshadows from INGLOT just like MAC!
    Thank you Z 🙂

  5. Love it
    In regards to your blending colour, I notice you tend to use blanc type, orb and vanilla. How do you decide which one you use, what determines that?

    1. Hi Tracey! It usually depends on the crease color; for example, most brown shades get real muddy when I try to use Vanilla and/or Orb to blend out the harsher edges, but Blanc Type takes them away seamlessly because it has beige tones in it. Whereas Vanilla and Orb work really well with some of the pinker shades in MAC’s line. Not to say that Blanc Type doesn’t, but Vanilla and Orb produce beautiful results in that regard. 😉

      1. Thank you, that’s really helpful. I’ve got Brule that I use for a blend at the moment so I’ll monitor how it goes

  6. What lipstick from MAC would you recommend for this look, Z? Shy Girl? Creme Cup? Fabby? Blankety? 😉 Seems lighter might be better but not sure 🙂
