This look is from at least a week ago! I actually haven’t worn eyeshadow since this look. You can blame me for being lazy/busy; I think both may apply here and there. ;)

How are you all? I hope everyone’s doing well. I’m in the process of trying to figure out a way to better balance all of the things I need to get done so I can actually start scratching things *off* my to-do list rather than just adding to it. Any tips? ;)

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Soft Ochre paint pot (neutral base), Guerlain Charnel Eyeshadow (peachy-gold), Guerlain Fleuri Eyeshadow (lavender with gold shimmer), Cranberry eyeshadow (purple-cranberry), Shroom eyeshadow (highlighter), Urban Decay Ransom 24/7 Liner (purple), Plushlash mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Clinique Cherry Blossom Eyeshadow (soft frosty pink)
  • Lips: Guerlain Flushy Beige Lipstick (pink-beige), Guerlain Cerise Tentation Gloss (sheer 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: N/A

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Soft Ochre all over the lid as the base with the 249. On the inner lid, apply Charnel eyeshadow using the 239. Apply Fleuri eyeshadow to the middle of the lid and extend to outer lid. Darken crease with Cranberry eyeshadow using the 226. Sweep Femme-fi underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with Urban Decay Ransom on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Cherry Blossom eyeshadow using the 129. Apply Flushy Beige lipstick to lips, and then top with Cerise Tentation gloss for color and shine.

    This is really pretty Christine!

    Re: your to do list – See if you can prioritize by deadlines or immediacy. That always helps me figure out what to do first and go from there.

    Oh my gosh, this is such a cute look.

    I wore my Beautiful Iris with Contrast yesterday, but tomorrow I will create a combination with BI and my Shroom.

    Oooh I might just have to buy Fleuri after all. :) Also thinking about getting the blue one (was it Indigo?). Very pretty colours.

  6. cloudburst

    The lips are really pretty!

    This is absolutely gorgeous, I love it! I think I may need Charnal and Fleuri now, although I don’t know if they’d look nearly as pretty on me :)

  8. Nice, the colors look great on you!

    Hey Christine… how do you get the blue shadow so close to your bottom lash line withour going on to the inner rim, yet still not lower that your lashes? …:)Can you get back to me?

  10. Minnie

    This look is great on you! So pretty!

  11. Andrea

    those colours look great on you! esp like the lip coulour and the fleury shadow…

  13. Ashley

    Thanks Chrisitne, love the look! The lips are my favorite. Guerlain lip products are very wearable and complements most skin tones!!

  14. Leigh

    This is pretty creative and different. I like it!

    I find that I’m really starting to like dramatic make-up these days (GUILTY PLEASURE!). I can’t wait for you to do a very dramatic look! This is on the safe side, but very beautiful nonetheless.

    Again, I wonder how this would look if you had lined your upper lashline instead…

    • Unfortunately lining my upper lash line results in slightly swollen lids/itchy eyes, so I rarely do it because I prefer not to suffer through it! Usually if I do it for a look, it means I planned to remove the look shortly after photos :)

  17. Brianne

    Oh wow, the Charnel eyeshadow is BEAUTIFUL.

  18. Myxa

    Christine, how do you get the eyeliner right in between your eyelashes on the bottom lid? Mine always just sits on the skin right below the eyelashes.

  19. I love you in springy colours :) So fresh and pretty! Perhaps if you aim to complete one thing off your to do list per day you will get through it slowly, and eliminate procrastination!

    What a pretty Spring look! Somehow lavender eyeshadow like Beautiful Iris will only see the light of days for me at this time of the year. I’ll be off no help with your problem, stop procrastinating is my resolution this year.

  21. monica

    what is wrong with your skin? i see no problem!

    Christine ,

    As Usual – it came out so awesome.

    Is there any chance if you can guide us about hair straightning sometime.

  23. Andrea

    This is really a great spring look!!! I just bought Charnel (gorgeous!!!!!!) and wore it today with Lotusland. Looked really great but I thought something was missing, and now I see that I needed something darker in the crease, like you had here with Cranberry. Wonder if maybe Satellite Dreams could do it?

  24. Andrea

    Pretty very pretty,
