I wrote about my first INGLOT palette in October of last year when INGLOT was just about to open its first store in Glorietta 5. I had plans to visit as early as their opening weekend, but the holidays came around, life got in the way, and I was just too busy to visit until last week. Crazy how that happens… before your know it, four full months just pass you by!
Anyhoo, I was very excited to finally visit INGLOT because between writing about my palette in October and now, I decided that I wanted to “edit” it a little bit to make the perfect nude palette. If you haven’t yet seen how my palette was originally set up, check out the old post and then come back to this. Done? Great! So, where was I? Oh right, the perfect nude palette.
Does such a mythical, mysterious creature even exist? Well, when you can make your own palette, it most certainly can. You just need to understand your skin and know your own preferences well enough. I also believe that a mix of matte shades and shimmery shades is essential to create a good balance. The palette (my palette) that you see above has three matte shades, one pearl finish, and one on the shimmery side. That’s cool with me because I personally like going all-matte on the lids with a shimmery highlight just on the inner corners of my eyes. Others (loads of people, I would think!) might prefer more shimmer.
My INGLOT palette previously had two more shimmery shades (a shimmery taupe/brown and a neutral purple). I removed those because they weren’t getting as much love as the other three shades. To replace them I chose Matte #330 and AMC Shine #37. Let’s go over all of the shades and I’ll also explain how I use each one in creating my favourite everyday wearable looks.
