This was a quick look from last week! I finally got around to using Henna, yay! :) Some pictures from Mellan at the park when his buddy Neptune visited, plus a lil’ video, too.

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Soft Ochre paint pot (beige base), Flip eyeshadow (soft orange-gold), French Cuff eyeshadow (bronzy pink), Henna eyeshadow (antique gold), Femme-fi eyeshadow (soft highlighter), Urban Decay Bourbon 24/7 Liner (brown), Plushlash mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Brunette mineralize skinfinish (soft bronze)
  • Lips: Blow Dry lipstick (sheer coral), Live & Dye lipglass (sheer white-pink)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 226 (fluffy crease brush), 214 (smudge brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: Flip = Motif; French Cuff = Expensive Pink; Henna = Sumptuous Olive; Femme-fi = Shroom; Brunette = Bronzer; Blow Dry = Ravishing; Live & Dye = Luminary

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Soft Ochre 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 of the lid. Darken the outer lid using Henna eyeshadow on and drag into crease using the 239. Sweep Femme-fi underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with Urban Decay Bourbon Liner on lower lash line and Plushlash mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Brunette mineralize skinfinish using the 129. Apply Blow Dry lipstick to lips, and then top with Live & Dye lipglass for color and shine.

    Oh yea, I also noticed that in the eyeshadows used, you put “Flip” but in the directions it said, “Going Bananas”.

    Love the look on you! Have you seen the new MAC website? They totally revamped it! I’m not digging it..what do you think?

  6. Leigh

    This look looks great on you!

    haha I am going to take this look from you :) I havent even purchase anything from BBR. YET. Very beautiful as always and wow you hair is growing super fast. Dont think I forgot about wanting to see in a pin up look lol maybe for Valentines day. Awww I see Mellan is well loved and well taken care of. How is he doing with his hip and all? Im thinking we can raise the money? Anything is possible?

    • Thanks, Haydee! :)

      He’s doing just about the same as before, so that’s good! He’s still as bouncy and happy as ever, haha.

      At this point, the only surgery he’d be eligible for would be a total hip replacement, and it’s something that can be done at any point in his life, though most wait until it’s really known that it’s needed. There are some few dogs that live long lives despite hip problems and never need surgery, so we hope Mellan is like that! :)

  8. This is a great look! Very naturally pretty

  9. kat

    ahhh hahaha at mellan! I love how you tell him to sit and turns away and says ‘no!’ haha!

  10. styrch

    You look positively radiant in this look! It’s fantastic!

    Hi Christine! Wow, I totally love this lip combo on you. It’s a great neutral lip. I’m super happy I bought Flip! I love that color. I was sorely tempted by Henna’s gorgeous gold shimmer, but it was too close to Sumptuous Olive when I swatched it. Anyways, Mellan is adorable in this video!

  12. abby

    I love this look! Yeah your hair is growing fast. It looks really nice. I like your dog…so cute!!

  13. pia

    Your skin looks amaazing, Christine! Love this natural look. I want BBR but I’m officially broke! *cries*

  14. Love the makeup look! Very pretty! I usually don’t favor neutrals, but if I were to wear more neutral colors, I’d want it to be something like this!

    And OMGCUTE! Your dog! OMG! I mean, pictures are adorable, but puppies in action is even cuter! The cute factor goes up by like 200%!! SO PRECIOUS!!! XD

  15. Another beautiful look from you :)

  16. Anitacska

    I am seriously considering getting French Cuff when BBR finally arrives here (2 more weeks to go), it’s such a pretty colour. Really like this look, very wearable yet pretty. Love the lips too. And Mellan is cute as ever. :)

  17. MissTiss

    forgot to add, Mellan is so ADORABLE. I’m more of a cat person, but he almost makes me change my mind…
