Face of the Day: Featuring Smokey Inglot Shade #451


(L to R) Inglot #488, 399, 451

Inglot has this reallllly beautiful dark blue shade (#451, shown above), that I feel has a little gray mixed into it. Anyway, I have been trying to find a way to use it in a look, and here it is! Even though I have blue eyes, I still find this color makes them look electric. If you have lighter blue eyes, please don’t discount dark blues like this Inglot shade; they do amazing things for your eyes!

  1. Omg hope I have all the colours must try this one xxx pls do an album with inglot like mac amd others pls thx xxx

  2. Love your hair like this, great length and curl
    I find this a great example of pink on the eyes and nude/peach on the lips

  3. Love this look and your hair. Are you going to do a hair video for this style? Loving the Inglot looks as Mac and Inglot l have no trouble purchasing them in Australia.

  4. Love it! Another perfect job of course. And love the hair too. Z, what’s a good dupe for 488 in MAC in your opinion?

  5. Such a beautiful look! But Inglot 399 in your pic (the picture of it in the pan) appears much darker than the 399 in your “Moss Fields” post some months back. Did they re-formulate or is it the same 399?

    1. Ahh yeah, I couldn’t get the darn thing to photograph accurately for this post šŸ™ I should’ve stuck it in the lightbox instead of going with natural sunlight – the Moss Fields post is a more accurate depiction of it! šŸ˜‰

      1. Ah, Ok thanks for the info! I do have 399 but was wondering if they re-vamped it, LOL! I am so in love with the Inglot shades I have! Looking forward to more combos this year šŸ™‚

  6. Such a pretty, feminine look with a bit of sultriness. The dark shade looks more grey than blue – sort of puts me in mind of UD’s Creep or Gunmetal from the first Naked palette. I so love Inglot shadows.

  7. Hi Z
