ARDENCY INN pulls inspiration from music and art when creating their lusty makeup products that have made our desks, pocketbooks and vanities home. Pro artist James Vincent, for ARDENCY INN, shows us some makeup tips for creating the perfect SXSW look.

Waterproof and long wear product are perfect for the non-stopness of SXSW. Keep your makeup in place when you’re watching performances (and like, crying alongside Chris Martin) or when you’re out for the night partying. ARDENCY INN PUNKER Original Smoky Shadow is an easy find for creating a perfectly smoky eye with one swipe. Deep charcoal adds sexy smoke on the lid, and along the lash line, making all other eye makeup more durable in intense situations. For extra dramatic eyes, add PUNKER Eyes Like Fire Shadow. Completely transfer proof and packed with black, this cream shadow has all eyes on you with its rich and sexy smoogy application that delivers bold black with a bit of shine. Finish it all off with PUNKER World’s Baddest Eyeliner for a versatile liner look that allows  for playful kitten or rock chick cat eyes. There are no limits in what you can accomplish with the bold, bad waterproof black of ARDENCY INN PUNKER products on stage or off.

Bring bright color to your makeup statement with ARDENCY INN MODSTER Long Play Lip Vinyl. Red lips are the classic goto, so let Lovecat Lip color give you the perfect pout in a long wear matte formula. For more pop, put a touch of Long Play Lip Vinyl in Original Remix in the center of the lip and create a perfect pout that has the staying power of a stain with the high shine of a gloss. Add MODSTER Smooth Ride Supercharged Eyeliner in Dark Blue for an unexpected appeal that gives the depth of black with deep blue tone, which BTW, whitens and brightens the most tired eyes (a.k.a. festival eyes). Wear it all night and into the next morning because ARDENCY INN Eyeliner is completely smudgeproof and waterproof and does not come off until you want it off.
