Inglot, Chelsea Market Location
Inglot is now offering makeup classes at their retail locations - $100 for a 1-on-1 session, with the fee redeemable on products. Private classes are by appointment only. They will also offer group classes, announced via Twitter and Facebook, at a rate that is still being determined. Within New York city, the classes are offered at all their retail locations, with additional pro classes at the Chelsea Market location.
I attended a sneak peek of a "Day to Night Makeup" class. The makeup artist did a simple day time look with some neutral eyeshadows, and transitioned it into a night time smoky eye with just a few simple steps. He used the new rainbow shadows for the looks.
A black eyeliner was added to bring out the eyes and intensify the look. The makeup artist used Inglot's gel liner, which is very opaque. He then added a deep plum purple shade to the inner and outter corner of the lid, leaving the lid bare to avoid the raccoon look.
Blend, blend, blend
A gloss was added to the lipstick making the lips pop. Some bronzer blush was used on the cheeks. The MUA mentioned to never deposit the color directly on the cheeks first, instead, always work from the outside and blend inwards.
And, the finished look.
I loved all the tips and tricks the MUA shared throughout the session. Keep in mind that this was just a preview class, a full class would be much more detailed. The classes are also customizable to better suit your needs.
While at the Inglot store, I seized the opportunity to check out their new rainbow matte shadows ($7 Each). They look so pretty sitting in the pan. The shadows are pigmented, soft, and blendable. I'm not huge on matte shades myself, but can see matte and color lovers adoring these. I would love to see a shimmery variation this!
Here are some random swatches just so show what the texture is like on skin. They're non-chalky, and the color is buildable.
