Bright Makeup: Yellow, Orange, & Red

Does anyone else find it hard to get back into the swing of things? Whenever there’s been a disruption to my usual day-to-day routine (traveling for business, vacation, getting too sick to move, etc.), I just find it so difficult to fall back into my schedule! Grrr!

I’ll be heading over to MAC once they open (boo, being on the west coast!) to pick up the four missing items from Liberty of London and will update the review once I’ve done that. Who else is visiting their local MAC to grab some Liberty of London goodies?

You will need the following…

For eyes, start by applying Goldilux as your eyeshadow base with the 239 and water-based mixing medium (or water). Using the 239, apply Buttercupcake eyeshadow on the inner third of the eyelid. Next, apply Flamepoint eyeshadow on the middle third of the eyelid and lightly blend with the inner corner. Darken the outer third of the lid with Love+ eyeshadow with the 239, gently brushing it into the lower crease. Lightly blend Love+ eyeshadow, with the 239, on the outer corner and lid. Lightly tap and brush Flamepoint eyeshadow directly above the crease to soften. To finish the eyeshadow look, sweep Femme-fi eyeshadow as a highlighter on the brow bone. Bring everything together by applying Lucky eyeliner on the lower lash line. Finish by sweeping lashes with Plushlash mascara.

For cheeks, apply Prim & Proper blush to the apples of the cheeks and sweep upwards towards the temple with the 116. Highlight cheeks with Polished cheek colour with the 188 for a soft sheen.

For lips, apply Ever Hip lipstick first, and then layer True Babe lipglass for a complementing lip.

    Beautiful! Must try it tomorrow. Oh and by the way, if you look closely, it looks like you’ve got leopard spots on your irises :)

  2. EEK! Those colors look GREAT on you! So vibrant. You really handle warm colors well. Lucky duck! :)

  5. Shah'ada

    Boldly beautiful!!! I really love this look Christine! Quick question – whenever I use water based mixer, I end up with verrrrry wet eyes and grody brushes. Help? *begging* thanks!

    Hey Christine, Im waiting for my lunch break to head over to Nordies in SF to pick up my pre-ordered MAC stuff..Im sure ill end up getting more once Im there. So far I got: Ever Hip l/s, Shell Pearl B/P, bough grey e/s, and High Style l/g.. :)

  7. Zeezee

    So cool Christine!! Lovin’ it :)

  8. Wow!!! Wonder if i could pull this look off with the RED?? I might end up looking like I just had an allergy or something. ;)

    But you did a great job with these colors!

    • LOL! With the right colors, I think you can! I also think that this is such a true red with SO much pigmentation that it’s unmistakable that it’s *eyeshadow*, you know?

      Thank you!

  13. WOW! You look so hot! I’ve seen a bunch of sugarpill looks and this is the first one I really think is wearable..so gorgeous!

  14. Lucy

    Hey Christine! Will you be doing a look with the new Bobbi Brown Bonfire palette? I also can’t wait to get the new Ever Hip lipstick after seeing this!

  15. Mimi

    I’m loving this look! And that lip combo looks amazing!! I have to try it soon :D

  16. This might be too much bright on my skin tone, but i LOVE this! I wish I’d seen that sugarpill palette before spending all my money, those colors are RIGHT up my alley!

  17. Christine shen

    Love the lips!!!

  18. Nadine

    I really love the Lucky eyeliner! Everytime I see you wear it, I’m like, what is that, I really like it. I think it would be a simple way to make a great eye!

    PS. The look is pretty awesome, keep them coming please :D

  19. I’m into the subtle cleopatra thing you’ve got going on with the narrow band of bright color. also, that orange shadow color is amazing. hard as all heck to wear but such a pretty color!

  20. Petra

    Wow, Christine, I hardly ever do lipstick-lipgloss combinations (I just dislike the feel of layers on my lips, especially if I have a ‘full face’ of makeup), but this combination kind of taught me: see, this is what you might be missing out on!
    It’s lovely and compliments your colouring so well!I’m tempted,I feel this might suit me too. :)

  21. Victoria M

    WOW – you always look super nice in these summer looks :-) I love it, and wish I could pull that off….

  22. abril

    I really really loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee the lips!!!!!!!

  23. Alexis

    Awesome you used Sugar Pill – it’s really pigmented! It’s a great “welcome summer” look!

  24. Alexis

    And yes, I will be making a return visit to the Pro-store this Saturday. I just wish that they weren’t in the Marina -bit of a hassle driving into. I’m hoping to stick to the Blue India nail polish and maybe a blush.

  25. Elly

    Love Ever Hip on you!
    I had a small Give Me Liberty haul…Ever Hip l/s, Blooming Lovely l/s and Soft Shell b/p. I was so disappointed when I got home b/c my Ever Hip had been set off center inside the tube and got totally mangled when I twisted it up. Luckily, I went back and they gave me a new one :D

  26. oooooooh gorgeous look. sucks i missed out on true babe!! :(

  27. Andrea

    So nice and vibrant!!!

  28. Hannah

    thank you so so so much for this look!
    I’m starting to save up now…LOVE IT!
    You are such a beautifully amazing woman and I love everything you do, keep it up :D

  29. Anitacska

    Love the lips, but not the red eyes. Looks good in close up, but not the whole face pictures. Beautifully applied, as always though, just bit too red imo.

  30. Ooh, sunset! :] These warm looks look really great on you, by the by. Very interesting to see how you made the bright pink gloss work over a peach lipstick, and then made that work with the eyes. Good job!

  31. Cherie

    SOOOOOO pretty!!! You can pull off anything! :)

  32. Jennifer

    WOW this is amazing!!!

  33. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Jill AnGeLwInGz

    I AM SO IN LOVE WITH THIS LOOK! Perfect for spring/summer. Thanks for introducing me to Sugarpill Christine.

  34. Tina

    Beautiful look, Christine; I love the colors on you- you pull them off wonderfully. However, I can’t help but notice that most of your looks tend to be the same in terms of application; the only thing you change is the colors.

    • This is my style, you could say :) I do my makeup very much on what I like not necessary trying to be different or trying something new for the sake of it.

  35. This look reminds me of one of those rocket frozen pops! Christine, I would love to see you with curly hair one day! You would look gorgeous ;D

  36. charlieee

    the lip combo is super cute! :)

  37. Carrie

    I went to my MAC counter this morning (in the rain) just to get my hands on the things I wanted from the new collection, and they didn’t have it! Last week they said they’d be getting it in today, but this morning they told me that they’re a week behind on everything. They just got the Too Fabulous collection. I was so disappointed. :(

  38. Melissa

    your actual eyes look awesome!!! :)

  39. wow the Sugarpill products look great on you! I might have to pick some up.

  40. Hey Christine – question about the Yellow. How does it compare to MAC’s super bright matte yellow (can’t remember the name)?

    This one looks so much more vibrant than the MAC one I have, so I’m thinking of buying it from Sugarpill. Let me know what you think!

    -A

  41. Saira

    I love this look! I really like the addition of the red on the outer lid and crease – it gives it this really cool sunburst, fire like look. I don’t have any Sugarpill products but I might try this with some Mac ones like Chrome Yellow, Orange and either Hot Hot Hot or Coppering.

  42. Saira

    P.S. I never would have thought to pair that sort of light pinky liipstick and gloss with those eyeshadows but it goes really well together. I normally wear coral or light peach colours with yellow and orange eyeshadows but I think the pink lipstick you used works with the eye look perfectly and stops it from looking too orange.

  43. Hilana

    Not usually a fan of such bright colours, but this reminds me of sexy Spanish women with pulled back hair, beautiful dresses and a lot of sensual dancing and red wine. I would look terrible with this, but it really does suit you. Beautiful indeed. I think a lipstick with a more orangy hue would also suit these eyes well, yes?

  44. Luisafer

    this makeup makes your eyes pop!!! looks great on you!!! great way to do such a bright makeup… must try

  45. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Megan Megan

    Oooh! I love this! It reminds me of summer popsicles or rainbow sherbet. Fantastic look!
