Hey beautiful people! How are you guys doing?

My review of the Inglot Aquastic cream eyeshadow

thebeautymascot/inglot aquastic eyeshadow

The Inglot Aquastic cream eyeshadows comes in a transparent tube packaging. The packaging is so convenient, you can carry it wherever you want. Hence travel-friendly.Comes with an applicator you can use the applicator and place the product on your eyelid. But the right way is to place the eyeshadow on the back of your hand and then using a brush apply it to your eyelid. But remember to work fast as it might dry out if you take too much time. There will be ample time to use it and blend it but once it dries it wont move.

The consistency of the eyeshadow is somewhere between liquid and cream. Which makes it an awesome choice to double up as an eyeliner. Has a beautiful shimmer. The eyeshadow is really pigmented. You can also layer it and build up the colour and the shimmer, if you prefer. If you don’t want to use this as an eyeshadow, it also works as a great base under any other eyeshadows. Looks so beautiful, acting as a great base and add a little bit of shimmer. You can also use a sheer wash of colour and shimmer for a less dramatic look too. Has no fragrance.

I actually love how beautiful it looks on the eyelid. Perfect to add a pop of colour too. I own two shades,20 and 15. Shade 20 is a beautiful green shade, while 15 is a beautiful copper shade . This lasts for 8 hours. The shades 15 creases a bit after that and both the shades begin to fade. Otherwise these does not smudge or crease. One of the greatest disadvantage of these eyeshadows is that if you have so many wrinkles on your eyes, then this might make it look more obvious.

Even though it feels so hard to remove, it really is so easy and that I love about it.This is not water-proof. So if you prefer water-proof makeup then you might not want it.This is water-based and removes easily with water, only by rubbing gently. The quantity is also great and I think there will not be any need for re-purchase any time soon.

EYE MAKEUP TIPS FOR OILY EYELIDS

Today is a special day for her because she was going on a date with the man of her dreams, the man whom she had a crush on like forever. And today she decided to do the makeup inspired by her favourite YouTuber. And how pretty she looked, the eye makeup was so good it made her beautiful green eyes even more beautiful.She wore the most beautiful dress. And everything was just perfect until she decided to check herself in the mirror for one last time. When she looked into the mirror she thought her best dream had converted to her worst nightmare. Her eyeshadow had creased, her eyeliner was all over. Oh! No! She had racoon eyes.

If this has ever happened to you or at least something similar then this post is for you, my friend!

Everybody has oil glands, the reason for oily eyelids is the glands which are located at the eyelash line. Like I said, everyone has it but some might have oil secretion even more, just like the case of our face. That doesn’t mean a person with an oily face will necessarily have an oily eyelid or vice versa. But I am sure if you have oily eyelids you know the struggle. You know how fast your eyeshadow creases and sometimes your eyeshadow looks patchy or lose intensity and you know how it feels when your eyeliner transfers to your top lids or fades.

We all have been there, me too! Until I learned some amazing eye makeup tips. Three simple steps to a flawless eye makeup for oily eyelids. Here I am not talking about makeup I am talking about the prepping you must do for your eye makeup to last long…and longer!

The three simple steps 

Trust me it’s easy! I am not asking you to include more time-consuming steps to your makeup routine. These are easier than you thought and very important steps, if you have oily eyelids or not and it takes just 10 more seconds or so but saves the agony of your makeup becoming a mess just after a few hours of application. The process isn’t a big deal but the results are.

Step1: The cleansing 

As much as it is important to apply makeup on a clean face, it is equally important to apply eye makeup on a clean eyelid. You don’t want any leftover mascara or eyeliner on your eyelids. All you have to do is use a makeup remover and wipe off any residual makeup or oil. For the lazy bones, you can use wet wipes instead.

I like using micellar water.

My suggestions:
Bioderma Sensibio H2O Water
Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes
Clinique Take the Day off makeup remover

 

Step2: Blotting

Yes, blotting! Even after you have wiped off the eyelids there might still be oil residue on your eyelids. You have to get rid of it as much as you can. If there is oil on your eyelids then once you apply eye makeup it breaks down the makeup, which we don’t want obviously. Moreover, if there is oil on your eyelids, your eye makeup will end up looking patchy. So for a flawless eye makeup, this step is very important.

My suggestions:
Boscia Green Tea Blotting linens
ELF Shine Eraser Oil Blotting sheets

Step 3: Eyeshadow primer

I am quite sure you are already using eyeshadow primers. Eyeshadow primers seal the oils of your skin away from your eye makeup and help your eye makeup last longer. It also helps in better pigmentation of your eye shadows and also a smoother application. You can also use concealer for this, but always remember to dust some loose powder on top of any cream/liquid concealers before applying eye shadows. And, please remember less is more when in this case too. You only need a very small amount of the primer.

My suggestions:

Urban decay eyeshadow primer potion

Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Primer

Nyx HD eyeshadow primer

Then do your magic. Play with eye shadows and create the look you want and may your eye makeup stay all day!

Few other eye makeup tips

  • If you have oily eyelids, start by applying thin layers of eye shadow and then build up the intensity. Don’t start with a thick layer.
  • When choosing eye makeup choose the ones that are long-lasting.
  • If you have extremely oily eyelids it is better to avoid cream eyeshadows at least avoid using these very close to the lashline. But there are some awesome cream shadows like the Maybelline colour tattoo,which stays all day.
  • If you are using cream eye shadows, it will be best if you can layer it with powder ones or at least try to dust a very very small amount of translucent powder on top. Similar is the case with eyeliner, if possible layer your eyeliner with an eyeshadow so that your eyeliner stays put for a longer time.
  • When choosing eye creams, take care of the formula, go for gels or oil-free ones that don’t leave your eyelids greasy. If your favourite eye cream makes your eyes look greasy, then save it for night time.
