  9. kat

    Lovely colours! This is totally the kind of look that I do :) thanks for sharing!

    • I’m so happy you liked it! Some of the colors are from one of the Holiday MAC Palettes (Warm Eyes I think?), but they’re probably easily duped!

  10. aradhana

    nice subtle use of post haste!
    and great pics too!

  11. LR

    OMG! that is stunning! I love the color combinations you used..your blending is amazing…what a beautiful girl..hope to see more looks from you!

    Very elegant and beautiful look

  13. Sash

    You’re so pretty, Heather!!! I love this look on you!
    Is that a chalazion on your bottom left lid?=(

    • Thank you so much! Actually that’s my birthmark :-) it’s been there since I was born!

      • Sash

        Oh, really?! Doesn’t take away from your beauty at all. You’re gorg, hun!

        • Aww thanks so much! I’ve learned to love it…kinda makes my eye unique in a way I think. I def. have a lot of people tell me I have makeup smudged under my eye though…and I tell them it’s my birthmark and they get embarrassed, but it’s all good. Makes me wonder how many people THINK that but don’t say it hahaha :-)

  14. Evelyn

    this is a stunning look. It really complements your hair colour! Gorgeous.

  15. This is an amazing look! Super gorgeous and extremely well done. I’ll try and see if I can recreate it for my dinner this Saturday (: Thanks for the inspiration!

  16. Ohhh it’s really pretty. Very tropical!

  17. Great look, Heather! Reminds me of a sunset on an autumn day. =)

  18. Jessica

    I dig it. Will be copying the look!

  19. chelsea

    i think there should be a tutorial done on this look – im going to try and recreate it with differnt colors because i only have gorgeous gold =[

  20. Cecile

    That lip gloss is beautiful! The look suits you really well :)

  21. Why it look like she crying???

    • Oh no, I’m not crying! That’s my birthmark under my left eye :-) Sorry, guess I need to clarify that before I post my pictures hehe.

  22. pia

    Heather, you gorgeous you! this is a kind of look that I’ll be able to do everyday! Is fab n flashy a permanent? Can you suggest a dupe for it? Thanks for the inspiration

    • Hi Pia! I’m so happy you’re going to recreate it too! Fab ‘N Flashy came out a while ago and it was LE, but it’s pretty orange colored. You could substitute Orange (lightly) or Paradisco. :-)

  23. Amy

    You are so gorgeous! This is a stunning look, I am going to try hard to replicate, your blending and application is amazing!

  24. Mara

    OMG, this look literally made my jaw drop. The colors are absolutely gorgeous! I’m still working on my application/blending skills, but this is one I will definitely put to practice on a blank eye chart. I think it’s perfect for a sultry, summer evening! Thanks so much for sharing this!

    • Mara, your comment made me smile so big! 😀 To tell you the truth, I was super nervous to send this to Christine…not sure if it was good enough, but I really liked the colors. I kept mulling over it, so your comment means so much. All of these super sweet comments have truly made my week. I humbly thank you so much!

  25. Rachel

    Oh my gosh,this look is gorgeus!!I love the eyeshadow. :)

  26. Melissa

    I love love LOVE this look. It makes me want to go buy all the colors and try it on myself. I definitely have to practice my blending before I attempt this though! Thanks for sharing, Heather!
