Ruth explained that she normally uses a darker palette on her eyes, I could understand why as that would really bring out her gorgeous green eyes. Darker shades are great for evenings but I wanted to do something different, since we were going to a pool party/BBQ I thought it would be nice to do a bronzed look and then add some colour to her usual eye palette. I used a Sleek Palette and blended copper with turquoise on her eyelid and then took a brown eye-shadow up to her brow bone. When you have smaller eye-lids you can wear your eye-shadow really high, it gives you the illusion of bigger eyes. I have bigger eye-lids so if I did that I would end up looking like a drag queen. I only ever wear high eye-shadow for costume parties or if I need an OTT look. Its really important to recognize your features and work to enhance them, I’ve seen people try to copy a beautiful make-up look and it just looks terrible because they didn’t consider how to adapt things to suit there features.
I highlighted under Ruth’s brow and used an eyebrow pencil to add more definition, then I finished with a metallic turquoise liner under the eyes and two coats of Benefit Bad Gal mascara. I added a MAC bronzer and a little Inglot coral blush and highlighted on her cheek-bones and nose. I finished with a Lancome coral lip-gloss, I thought it was perfect for the summery look I was going for and it really suited her.
Candy lips using Inglot Colourplay palette
Zizzle was at the Colour Play Lipstick Launch and we had a great time playing with the palette. I tried the candy ombre look on my lips and loved that it left the scent of candy on my lips and also left them feeling moisturised with the Vitamin E and apricot kernel oil. The lipsticks are long lasting and full of enriching ingredients perfect for protecting your lips over summer. Although we tried a crazy look, the palette allows you to have pretty day looks too and the range of colours can be blended to acheive even more looks. Honestly… I could play with the palette for hours!
colour play – freedom system palette

Zizzle attended the opening of the Inglot store in Mall Of The Emirates, Dubai, yesterday and we felt like kids in a candy shop! At a glance the store looks like a colour explosion, turquoises, corals, greens, reds …pretty much every colour in the spectrum all entice you to come and explore the products. The first thing we headed for was the colourplay lipstick stand. We love innovative products and what with colour being such a key part of spring, we loved the idea of wearing colours out of the ordinary on your lips. We limit ourselves to the norm because that is what’s available to us but Inglot have given us the freedom to play with all kinds of colour on your lips!
We also loved the idea of the unique Freedom System of creating your own palettes. Since makeup bag explosions are a frequent occurence for us, we liked the idea of choosing your favourite blushes, lipsticks and eyeshadows and putting them in one flat palette so everything is more compact and tailored to your needs!
Last but not least we loved the 02m nailvarnishes which are Inglots best selling product. Have you ever had nail varnish on for a prolonged amount of time and then noticed when you remove it your nails are discoloured? This is due to your nails being suffocated by coats of that beautiful shiny laquer that we ladies can’t resist… but now you don’t need to! 02m is the world’s first ever Breathable Nail Enamel ensuring better health care for nails whilst enhancing their beauty and the shades were gorgeous!
