Chilly look for a chilly day! For the past few days, it has definitely felt like fall! It’s really weird, because it was hot and summery like usual, then BAM! cool, windy days.

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Lark About pigment (silvery-purple white), Vex eyeshadow (gray-purple duochrome), Cumulus eyeshadow (grayish-blue), Silver Ring eyeshadow (dark silver), Femme-fi eyeshadow (neutral highlighter), Mystery kohl power (black-teal), Chanel Exceptionnel mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Blooming blush (soft pink)
  • Lips: Style It Up lipstick (nude), Cult Fave lipglass (pink)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: Lark About = Frozen White; Cumulus = Prussian; Femme-fi = Shroom; Mystery = Tealo; Blooming = Well Dressed; Style It Up = Cherish; Cult Fave = Cultured

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Lark About pigment all over the lid as the base with the 249. On the inner lid, apply Vex eyeshadow using the 239. Apply Cumulus to the middle of the lid, overlaying it with Vex. Darken the outer lid using Silver Ring eyeshadow and drag into crease using the 239. Sweep Femme-fi eyeshadow underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with Mystery kohl power on lower lash line smudged with Lark About pigment using the 219 brush, and Chanel Exceptionnel mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Blooming blush using the 129. Apply Style It Up lipstick to lips, and then top with Cult Fave lipglass for color and shine.

  1. This is something totally different, I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a light, cool look from you.

    I like it!

    Lovely! I like how you had pale lips so that it didn’t take the attention away from the eyes. You have the glowy look!

    • Thanks, Jan :) It’s an eye look that’s bold, yet you could probably get away with wearing something somewhat colorful on the lips – or you could go nude. I went for the lather!

    Pretty! Definintely a chilly look!

    It was like that here too. One day it was 90 degrees and literally the next day it was in the mid 50s. Weirddd

    I think this eye look would be gorgeous with that new Frozen Dream lipglass that is gonna be in the Chill collection.

  8. Nicole

    I like this look, some kind of 60ies touch.

  9. Sadie

    Stunning. Looks great with your tan skin and choice of lip color :)

  10. Please review the Chanel Mascara!

    I feel like the lips are maybe a bittt too neutral for my taste, but the eyes look great and the lips definately compliment them well :) lovely and definately very suitable for the current change in weather (we’ve been having it here in BC too D: )

  12. Kristen

    This is so gorgeous on you! I can’t wait to recreate it.

  21. I LOVE shimmery grews and cool hues…the eyeshadows look amazing on you! What a great look, very wearable too.

  22. pia

    I had to look twice to make sure it was you lol. I love the lipstick combo more.

  23. LocaLoli

    Vex is one of my favs I like it because its so unique. BOO :( I didnt get Lark about now I want it. Funny how looking at something alone and you can pass on it but seeing it used in a look makes you want it ASAP! Especialy when you put it all together all pretty like and rock the heck outta it. I love lil pops of a brighter color at the lower lash line. Great job like always.

    • I love Vex, too! It can look so different depending on what’s around it :)

      Lark About is pretty, because it also has such a duochrome to it, but Frozen White has it, too :)

  24. tatiana

    Christine,

    Do you think ALUM might be a good dupe for Cumulus? I’ve read it somewhere, what do you think?
