Colorful Makeup:  Green, Teal, & Blue

I envisioned a green, teal, and blue combination, and I really went from there for this look. I’m also trying to work on using permanent or recently released products in my looks, so, even though it was unplanned and totally coincidental, this look is very much like the theme of Build-a-Quad: “The Tropics.”

Happy Monday! I usually love Mondays, but it’s my first day back at school since I’ve been on winter break for the past two weeks… sigh. It’s so hard to get back into the swing of things, you know? Boo school!

You will need the following…

For eyes, start by putting a drop of water-based mixing medium (or water) on your brush, then apply Teal pigment as your eyeshadow base all over the lid with the 249. Using the 239, apply Juxt eyeshadow on the inner third of the eyelid. Next, apply Shimmermoss eyeeshadow on the middle third of the eyelid and lightly blend with the inner corner. Darken the outer third of the lid with Freshwater eyeshadow with the 239, gently brushing it into the lower crease. Next, define the crease by applying Deep Truth eyeshadow with the 226. Lightly tap and brush Gorgeous Gold eyeshadow directly above the crease to soften. With the 217, gently apply Gorgeous Gold eyeshadow above the innerlid and towards the brow bone. To finish the eyeshadow look, sweep Femme-fi eyeshadow as a highlighter on the brow bone. Bring everything together by applying El Dorado Liner on the lower lash line and sweeping lashes with Exceptionnel mascara.

For cheeks, apply Sugarbomb to the apples of the cheeks and sweep upwards towards the temple with the 116.

For lips, apply Freckletone lipstick first, and then layer Orgasm lipgloss for a glossy lip look.

    Beautiful. :-)

  5. This look is really gorgeous Christine! I dunno why but only when I look at your makeup I remember the summer vacation by the sea :)

  6. Saki

    Niiccee! I’m a sucker for bold looks D:

    Wow! This is a really gorgeous look. I would not have thought to do gold with the teals for some reason! LOL. I have always done silver metallics with blues and teals. Now I have options! I could even do browns, right? Love it. The NARS glosses are awesome, aren’t they. Orgasm is so pretty and it is really long-lasting.

    • Thanks a lot, Amy! :) Love, love golds with teals! So pretty. And yes, browns would be lovely.

      I’m not a big fan of the scent of their glosses, actually :( They’re fine otherwise, though on the sheer side!

    I love this!!! Your looks and the spring season series are seriously getting me in the mood for spring! This negative weather in the northeast isn’t helping either…

  9. Ana

    This looks gorgeous! I love the colors, and they remind me of Jinx and Flipside of Urban Decay.

  10. Roxanne

    Stunning!! I’ve always loved teals on you (and so have you! ;)) but this is exceptionally pretty, especially combined with those cheeks and lips.

    *wanting Shimmermoss, Freshwater and Deep Truth*

    This looks great on you, Christine! Good luck getting back to the swing of things at school… I have to leave the house quite shortly and I am NOT looking forward to it :/ At least you’re starting off the new year with a gorgeous, fun EOTD — I just have a large cup of caffeine to arm myself with!

  12. Val

    This looks lovely! I especially love the gold eyeliner, so pretty! Hope you have a great day back at school : )

    I love the love of Freckletone, now I must get it now because I keep on looking at it and picking it up at the store but for some reason I haven’t bought it yet.

  14. Oh my, this looks GREAT on you!

  15. Alexa

    I love this color so much, it reminds me the feather of peacock. Super gorgeous

  16. Linda

    I absolutely love everything about this look!

  17. I LOVE this look! I’m still not sure if I can pull off these colors – I think I run too warm. But I may just have to try!

  18. Beautiful! My kind of colors! 😀

  19. gio

    I love this look! It’s so colorful and beautiful!

  20. Love it!! Beautiful!! I’d love to wear teal, but damn my blue/green eyes lol. Maybe I should try?
    Loving the look of that freckletone lipstick……am into the nudes at the mo’, wondering if its too dark for me? I tend to dislike more browny nudes, they look like mud on me lol

    One of my fave looks!!

  21. OOOH! These are my favorite types of looks from you! They’re just gorgeous! Love the use of color and it suits you perfectly! Very inspiring! 😀

  22. I always love the lips you do in your looks. They inspire me to be more creative when I do makeup (lipwise I mean). :)

  23. Nicci

    the colors kind of match your headband, cute! :)

  24. suheda

    May i borrow your eyes:)??

    I love them so much…everything looks so great on you!
    I dont like mine:(


  25. Hey Christine! This look is lovely, as always…first of all, I wanted to let you know how lovely El Dorado looks on you! I keep seeing it in your looks and it always looks so good! Like you, I’m in love with the whole gold-khaki family of colours and I love how you wear them as a pop of colour on your lower lashline, but I was just wondering…do you have a strategy that you use to apply them to the lower lashline? For some reason, UD 24/7 liners are so creamy that when I apply them they kind of get all gunked up between my lower eyelashes.

    Thanks for your help!

  26. Tami

    Very pretty Christine! I have to put Freshwater and Shimmermoss on my list of shadows to buy:)

  27. Vijaya

    That is absolutely gorgeous. I need to try that. It’s too bad I don’t have the stuff I’d need.

    Looks like it’s time for a trip to MAC. =]

  28. Jenny

    This is gorgeous! I love this bold look, I’ve been stuck in neutral look rut I guess and this is refreshing lol.

  29. My favorite colors! Are the eyeshadows permanent or LE?

  30. Sylvie

  31. I love it when you do colourful looks!

  32. Adriana

    Christine! You did a great job!! I’m so in love with this look. I have to say U READ MY MIND about this! I wrote at the Freckletyone Pst that i’d love to see looks with this lipstick… and HERE’S!! also when i woke up i though “freckeltone would be nice with something teal… i hope Christine could do something with this stuff”
    what i see tonight… is like a… OMG! Thankyou!

  35. abby

    wwwwwooooowww i love this look on you!

  36. KG

    Christine, I’ve seen you use UD El Dorado in several looks. It’s gorgeous and I would like to buy it, but I cannot find it sold individally. Is it only available as part of the 24/7 Super Stash?

    • Unfortunately, it looks like it :( UD made 4 24/7 liners from the new shades into their permanent line, but it’s just Binge, Crash, Mildew, and Oil Slick – no El Dorado :(

  37. Joanna

    Gorgeous!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I will have to try this soon. Thanks!

  38. amy
