Duochromes + Jealousy Wakes Look

I was just playing around, and I wasn’t sure if I was going to post this, but some reader encouragement helped :) After seeing several readers mention Vex on yesterday’s post about Bare Escentual’s Urban Nature, I figured I’d try it. And then I just couldn’t help reaching for Jealousy Wakes…  The green tones of Urban Nature brought out the green in the shadow (rather than the slight bluish nature of it) — which is what I wanted, something that is so on the edge of green that it’ll integrate well with other shadows.

You will need the following…

For eyes, start by applying Urban Nature all over the lid and above the crease with the 242 to lay down your eyeshadow base.   Lightly press Vex eyeshadow onto the inner half of the lid with the 239.  Then apply Jealousy Wakes eyeshadow on the outer third of the lid and into the crease with the 239.  Blend Vex eyeshadow by pulling lightly towards the outer lid with the 239.  Apply Vanilla eyeshadow on the brow bone to highlight and soften the edge of the crease.  Next, apply Gilded White liner on the lower waterline and #20 liner on the lower lash line, and then smudge with Jealousy Wakes eyeshadow.  Coat lashes with Film Noir mascara to finish the look.

For cheeks, apply Aurora on the apples of the cheeks and sweep towards the temple with the 116.

For lips, apply #2 lipgloss for a complementing lip.

    This look really makes your brown eyes stand out! It looks beautiful. I have a feeling Jealousy Wakes is gonna sell out after this :)

    Green is my all time fave color…and this one is just gorgeous! Love the look!

    I love greens and that shade is the most beautiful I have ever seen to date (I am 19 lol) and I am not saying that because I read this blog, but because it is true. If I could buy that I totally would.
    It is nice to see makeup made with passion and patients. Very pretty <3

    This is a great look, really pretty with your brown eyes.

    Hi Christine. Love the look. I was wondering about the foundation. In your original review u were wearing #3. Now u are wearing #2. I’m wondering why your switched.

    amazing!!I tend to steer clear of Green shadows, but this will be too beautiful to pass up!!

  7. IceFluffPenguin

    Love it! So fun. I love the eye shadow color you came up with, what an honor. You deserve it :)

  8. Miss Silver

    I love the colour. It screams JEALOUSY.

    Christine – This is one of my favorite looks you’ve ever done…and I’ve nearly seen all of them! I A-D-O-R-E your shadow, and it will be mine!! Thanks for the inspiration, and the how-to guide!!

    XO, RF

  10. I hope you wear this look all the time, because it suits you SO WELL! Absolutely gorgeous. :)

  11. So beautiful, I love the look, I’m crazy abour greens! I must have this eyeshadow, great work 😀 Do you know when this will be available at the store?

  12. Honestly, I think that your eyeshadow is the best item out of the whole bloggers collection. All the other colours are… boring. Can’t wait to get my hands on that shadow.

  13. Alex

    Wow, this shade works really well with a nude lip, I’ll have to remember that combo for when I buy your shadow!

    Christine! I have never felt the need to comment before as I only occasionally come here but today, I was like ~WOW~ when I saw this.
    I am very very happy for you and you look so stunning; you are the most beautiful reviewer out there and no matter how crap the product, you look fantastic in it. Though, Jealousy Wakes is just so gorgeous that I wanted to know if it’s going to be available online in the UK? If so, I am REALLY REALLY going to get it as soon as it’s on display!

    Ah, you’re so pretty :)

    • Jo Alva

      I re-read my post, and I didn’t mean to say this look was crap lol I was referring to some other things you’ve reviewed which you said haven’t been so good, yet you always look stunning in it no matter what! :)

    • Thank you so much, Jo Alva! :)

      It won’t be unfortunately!

    Question: if you were to pick a nailcolor that were to match with this eyeshadow, which would it be?

    • China Glaze’s – I am so blanking on the name – but it is a Christmas-y shade. I want to say it’s called Emerald something!

    This is such a fantastic look! Vex is one of my favorite mac eyeshadows. I will definitely be trying this look when i get Jealousy Wakes!

  17. Lydia

    I don’t know if it’s my skintone or something, I don’t know my MAC numbering cuz they missmatched me for an NW25, wich look good on their lighting, but when I got home it was too dark, so I’ve been using Rimmel 103 Ivory and works great. Yesterday I tried a simmilar look to this one using ricepaper and shimermoss, and I can happily say shimermoss delivered a beautiful green! I’m happy cuz I don’t live in the US and I don’t know hot to get this shade before it runs up!

  18. malia

    man now I know why you made this shadow… it is absolutely perfect for you! Gorgeous!

  19. Laura

    I just want to say I’m happy I have 2 jealousy wakes coming to me on Tuesday via UPS! Christine, this is my favorite look you’ve posted so far with your shadow – I will definitely be buying the other products to recreate this look! Although, I do have to admit I’m getting a bit nervous as to wether the shade will look good on me – I am a neutral eyeshadow kind of girl all the way, but I love neutrals with a kick, especially a green kick! So I hope you can post some ideas of how to wear this shade in a more subtle, daytime way! Thank you!

    Wow, you look gorgeous!

    Love the eye look especially. I wanna try this soon. ^^

    I was going back through your looks and happened upon this one, when I realized I hadn’t used Jealousy Wakes in a while. I used it as a pop of color on the lower lash line with Sugarpill’s Lumi as an inner corner highlight, and then I was reminded why I love you. Beautiful, beautiful color, you did a great job. :)
