Here’s a really quick look using a bunch of BBR products :) I also attempted a video tutorial for it, but I’m really disappointed in the quality of the video–a little blurry, poor color–so I definitely won’t be using my Flip camera again! (It was free, thankfully.) I’ll have to give my DSLR’s video takin’ capabilities a shot next time I get around to doing a video. I think I can safely say that me putting out *any* video is an accomplishment ;)

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Your Ladyship pigment (beige-pink), Flip eyeshadow (soft yellow bronze gold), French Cuff eyeshadow (bronzy-pink), 100 Strokes eyeshadow (burgundy), Femme-fi eyeshadow (highlighter), Feline kohl power (black), Plushlash mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Fleurry blush (soft peach-pink), Redhead mineralize skinfinish (copper-bronze highlighter)
  • Lips: All’s Fair lipstick (berry pink), Live & Dye lipglass (pastel pink)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 214 (flat, stubby brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush), 226 (fluffy crease brush)
  • Substitutes: Flip = Goldmine + Nylon; French Cuff = Mythology; 100 Strokes = Sketch; Feline = Graphblack; Fleurry = Foolish Me; Redhead = Soft & Gentle; All’s Fair = Sweetie; Live & Dye = Love Nectar

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Your Ladyship pigment all over the lid as the base with the 249. On the inner lid, apply Flip eyeshadow using the 239. Apply French Cuff eyeshadow to the middle/outer portion of the lid. Darken crease with 100 Strokes eyeshadow using the 239. Sweep Femme-fi underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with Feline kohl power on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Fleurry blush and Redhead MSF using the 129. Apply All’s Fair lipstick to lips, and then top with Live and Dye lipglass for color and shine.

Who doesn’t love a Mellan photo? OK, don’t answer that. I ordered a bunch more of the large rawhide holiday bones since they were 50% off. It’s hard to resist the size of these at $5 a pop. He knew exactly what was in the box as soon the UPS man pushed it through the door, ha!

    Oh this would like with my leather jacket. Your son is so beautiful and his hair looks so soft.

  2. MizPriss

    I love this look you on you! What foundation do you wear?

  3. Heather

    You cut your hair! It’s adorable! (sorry if I’m way late on it)

    • lol, it’s grown out a bit since I cut it! I can finally put it back–well, at least to wash my face–though not in public since it looks wacky pulled back right now.

  4. Gemma

    Beautiful! Seriously, you have the magic skintone that looks good in ALL colors!

    P.S. Is the Brunette or Redhead MSF similar to So Ceylon MSF? I don’t want to get a dupe!

    • I don’t think so! So Ceylon is kind of dark, isn’t it?

      I never stuck with the MSFs, so I often sold or gave them away, otherwise I’d go to compare for you.

    Hey Christine! I bought Flip, but I was wondering what you think of this:

    My MA and I were looking through perm colors and figured Flip is a combo of Goldmine and Motif. I know you wrote Goldmine and Nylon, which could also work. What do you think of Motif instead of Nylon? I’m trying to decide if I should keep the color or not.

    Also, if you had to pick between Henna and Flip, what would you keep? I have Sumptuous Olive so I didn’t get Henna…but now I’m questioning my decision.

    • If you have Sumptuous Olive, you could skip Henna. They really are similar! I could see you getting a dupe using Goldmine and Motif! It would probably be better than using Nylon. Flip is a little darker, I think.

  7. Shefali

    Hey Christine! Another question:

    Did you put anything on the outer lower lashline? It looks like there is some sort of gold underneath Feline.

    Thanks!

    I like this look a lot more than the other one (below), I think these warmer colours suit you much more. I didn’t think I was going to get any e/s from BBR, but French cuff is calling me. ;) I love the lips too, All’s fair is on my list too. Mellan is so cute. :)

    I love this look. I really had great luck with the redhead line. It works so well with my skintone and Marquis’d just melts into my lips. It’s beautiful. I feel lucky.

    The girls at my Mac store told me that if you want to skip a shadow skip

    French Cuff is the same color as the stripe in the Redhead MSF.

    They used it on their eyes because French cuff is a PITA lustre.
    I think you can use Expensive Pink in place of French Cuff too.

    Evening Aura for Flip.

    The redhead colors are similar to the Neo Sci Fi colors which is probably why I adore them. Neo sci fi was perfect for my coloring.

    Pretty look. Does 100 Strokes perform better on the eye then it does swatched?

  11. Jan

    Mellan! What a handsome boy. You must have strong teeth with all that chewing practice!

    Love the look, love the video, and I’m especially rocking the lip colour! I also recently dug up Fleurry to use after being super stingy with it being LE.

  12. Molly

    So if I have sketch (and like it and use it often), and I got flip and french cuff, do I need 100 strokes? BTW, LOVE the look!

  13. Elle

    This looks great on you. I tried the same look at the counter, and I looked like a HOT MESS.

  14. PAOLA

    hey does 100 strokes look a whole lot like sketch? because now i have both colors :( i might return it now…

  15. Steffaniic

    Hi Christine, I love the look of that lipstick!! I searched on the website and I think it is discontinued. Would you recommend a substitute for “All’s Fair” Lipstick? Thank you so much Christine :) Lovely look by the way!
