Happy weekend everyone!! :) I’m off on winter break, so I’ve been in weekend mode perpetually since the last final finished–which is not really a good thing, LOL. I’ve realized that if I don’t do my makeup after I shower in the morning, then it’s pretty unlikely I’ll do it later. I thought I’d try a look using some Chill products yesterday, so here’s that look! :)

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Soft Ochre paint pot (neutral base), Wintersky eyeshadow (dark pink), Arctic Grey eyeshadow (light silver-gray), Apres-ski eyeshadow (dark matte gray-brown), Femme-fi eyeshadow (light highlighter), Feline kohl power (black), Plushlash mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: True Romantic blush (raspberry), Dior Rose Diamond Skin Shimmer (pink shimmer)
  • Lips: Hot Gossip lipstick (medium pink), Icescape lipglass (irridescent pink)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: Wintersky = Sweet Lust; Arctic Grey = Electra; Apres-ski = Copperplate; Femme-fi = Shroom; Feline = Graphblack; True Romantic = Gentle; Icescape = Flusterose

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Soft Ochre paint pot all over the lid as the base with the 249. On the inner lid, apply Wintersky eyeshadow using the 239. Apply Arctic Grey eyeshadow to the middle of the lid. Darken the outer lid using Apres-ski and drag into crease using the 239. Sweep Femme-fi eyeshadow 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 True Romantic blush layered with Rose Diamond using the 129. Apply Hot Gossip lipstick to lips, and then top with Icescape lipglass for color and shine.

  1. You got your hair cut into a bob?! =o Since when?
    Love the pinky/gray look.. Gorgeous =]

  2. grace

    i really like this!!! pretty simple but glowy. that’s what i was excited about for the chill collection. i want to do a look with wintersky & penultimate liner and then snowscene on the lips.

    Oh cute new haircut :) I like this much better than the other haircut you just cut off…I wasnt really diggn it…it kinda looked “old” Rachel ala Friends. This is way way way cuter and much more “YOU” :)

    • Thanks! Really? I liked the other one more, LOL! I feel this is a bit too short for me. It’s really annoying not to be able to pull it up from time to time–makes washing my face, cooking, etc. much harder ;P

      But thank you!!

  4. Reesa

    I love the look. Very wintery and pretty. I wasn’t really considering any of the Chill Collection…however, I might want to give it a look in person on my next MAC visit :-)

    I really like the new haircut! Happy Holidays!

  5. DevilishDoll

    Ooh, this is so pretty. Now I’m back to wanting the eyeshadows again. I could come up with so many looks for this collection.

  6. Jaclyn

    this is one of the best looks i’ve seen on you! it’s really subtle but gorgeous. i love your new haircut too.

  7. gio

    I love the look! It’s simple but gorgeous and very wintery.

    • Thank you, Gio! Yes, I think Chill is exactly what winter reminds me of. Of course, maybe a lil’ more blue here and there, but otherwise, it’s definitely winter-esque.

  8. Angie

    Nice hair! :D
    I like the look and how you put the colours together! But overall this collection doesn’t suit you as much though, cos of the skintone!

  9. sharon

    try using some volumizing mousse in your hair…itll look great then!

  10. Nicole

    I like it, pretty cool.

  11. MIchelle

    The colors of this collection suit you quite well! True Romantic was my second ever MAC blush and I am not feeling it, it seems like it doesn’t like to blend. It looks lovely on you though. :]

    • Thanks, Michelle! :)

      True Romantic IS very, very pigmented. It can also be hard to blend out, too, just because it tends to stay and not budge. I love using the 182 to help buff the color out, and sometimes covering it with loose powder (like MSF Natural) helps to diffuse and lighten the color a bit when it doesn’t want to blend!

  12. classic

    Nice hair cut Christine

    I bought Icescape Lipglass. The MAC make-up artist said it’s everything Oyster Girl should be! I still love Oyster Girl, but Icescape is really pretty. I plan to wear it over Party Line, So Scarlet, and Wild About You.

    • I love Oyster Girl! Icescape doesn’t do nearly as much for me as Oyster Girl, actually :( I bet it will look great over those lipsticks you mentioned, though!

  14. jesse

    Love the hair! Love the look! Picked up wintersky, but now might be inspired by you to pick up artic grey. :D Did you pick up the penultimate liner? What are your thoughts?

    • Thanks, Jesse! I did get the Penultimate Liner — I just used it for the first time this morning. It was… okay. I will have to use it a few more times before I can really have an opinion ;)

  15. Ooo I love your hair!

  16. You look gorgeous Christine :) You hair is so short! Does it feel strange? It really suits you :)

    • Thanks, Stacey! It doesn’t feel strange really, but I know I prefer a longer length now (like it’s not that I’m afraid of short, I can now say I have a preference!). I’m *so* annoyed that I can’t pull my hair back when I wash my face or cook or whathaveyou. It’s always coming to the front, LOL.

  17. Hia Girl!

    I love this look! I want that lipstick now!!
    Also wich camera do you use? :D
    Great pics! xxx

  18. I love this look on you! you made me lem for the eyeshadows now. lol! are they worth it?

    • Yay! Thanks, Lynn! :)

      Worth it? If you have similar colors, definitely pass-worthy. I don’t think any of them are OMG must-haves in the least bit. Wintersky is pretty, and it is a nice choice for a more subdued pink (that’s not so full-on pink like Da Bling). Vellum is lovely, though it was available at stores before and now I believe it will just be PRO only. Those were my two faves out of the five shadows.

  19. I love your eye makeup. Really looks so natural on you, but especially i love your lipgloss color. I’m a fan of pink color lipglosses.

  20. pia

    New hair cut! Fantastic, Christine!

  21. michelle

    Wow!
    I like these colors on you.
    Do you think this would look good with the eyeliner added as well?

  22. This is such a lovely look! <3
    I just had a closer look to MAC’s Chill collection and I actually loved the two eyesahdows ‘Wintersky’ and ‘Arctic Grey’ best!

    So now I saw it on you, and what a pretty look you can achieve with these two colors, I definitely will jump ahead and get these two items as soon as possible! ;)

    Which blush instead of True Romantic could you recommend for this look?

  23. i nt like it it makes u look like a lil girl and ur not one so i think if it was darker jst abit more then ull look ur age sometimes u have to face the bad to u know
