  1. I would steal the Ahoy There! look from thier website! :)

  2. Vanessa

    Shore Leave on the inner lid
    Illegal Cargo on the rest of the lid
    Meet the Fleet on the outer lid/crease

  3. Illegal Cargo on entire lid.
    Sketch on the outer V.
    Shore Leave as a highlight.
    And I have used Love Knot l/g on my lips.

    Illegal Cargo and Love Knot are my favorites out of the Naughty Nauticals collection!

    sharkskin s/s
    Bell Bottom Blue pigment all over lid (ontop of sharkskin)
    illegal cargo on inner corner of crease
    and hepcat or plum dressing on outer crease!
    shore leave as highlight

    absolutely gorgeous!

    My fave:
    Sharkskin s/s or Layin’ Low point pot
    Illegal cargo all over lid, barely getting into that crease.
    Poison pen on the crease, concentrating on outer crease
    Bobbi Brown Black gel liner (eck, you could use fluidline..)
    Fiberwig + Plushlash = sex
    CLINIQUE CREAM SHAPER IN STARRY PLUM to layer on top of the fluidline on upper lash line, until you get to the outer lid where you make the liner “thicker” but putting starry plum ABOVE black liner, instead of on top of.
    Repeat for bottom lashes.
    I went shopping with this, and there wasn’t one store (other than Burberry) that didn’t comment about how hott it was.

    I keep it simple, Illegal Cargo on the lid, Shale in the crease and Macroviolet Fluidline. I love Illegal Cargo to bits, its so pretty!

  7. Kanzaki

    I use it with the pigments Lovely Lily and Smoke Signal :)

    OMFG i love this color. it looks so good w/ seedling (grayish/brown/taupe) on the lid and, illegal cargo in the crease and folie in the outer crease to deepen. I LOVE IT!!! <3<3<3

  9. Erin

    What a coincidence!!

    I am wearing Illegal Cargo on the inner lid, Beautiful Iris on the middle third and Vibrant Grape shadow on the outer third.

  10. chicalola

    illegal cargo on the lid and twinks in the crease (Satin taupe or mulch on the crease too)

  11. listrikmu

    I’ve actually tried this look… nice! Turns out to be smoky purple/lavendar:
    Illegal Cargo on the lids, Trax in the crease & either Ricepaper or Pink Venus as highlighter.
    Dame for blush and something neutral brown for lips. I used Buoy O Buoy lipstick (frm NN line too!)

  12. Kristen

    I put Illegal Cargo on inner third out to middle of lid. I then put Silver on the outer corner and bring it up into the crease. I blend Illegal Cargo into the silver on outer lid. I am going to have to try for sure that one with Illegal Cargo all over lid and Satin Taupe in crease and see how we do with that.

    Christine, thanks for the look book, its good to be able to look up e/s that I have and see what other people are pairing up with it for different looks. I really would have never thought to try a brown with the purple look. Keep up the great work

    • This is a great look, Kristen! I’m glad you like Look Book – I think it’s definitely helpful when you need some help with a color or you want a new combo!
