Here’s my Sugarsweet look from yesterday! :) I used Red Velvet as I mentioned I probably would do, and to be honest, I wasn’t loving it. I felt like Red Velvet tended to eat color rather than amplify it. For those interested, Red Velvet and Dear Cupcake feel like virtually the same color; when I patted Dear Cupcake over Red Velvet, there was no color change whatsoever. I had tried using both Sugarshot and Motif eyeshadows on the inner portion of the lid, but neither of them showed up; so I ended up packing on Goldmine eyeshadow to finally get some oomph in that area.

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Red Velvet shadestick (dark pink), Goldmine eyeshadow (gold), Dear Cupcake eyeshadow (pink-coral), Stars ‘n Rockets eyeshadow (fuchsia-purple), Shadowy Lady eyeshadow (dark burgundy-purple), Femme-fi eyeshadow (soft neutral highlighter), Urban Decay Underground 24/7 Ransom Liner (dark purple), Plushlash mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Refined mineralize skinfinish (peach-nude), Dior Coral Riviera blush (soft coral)
  • Lips: Lollipop Loving lipstick (sheer coral-green), Chanel Tangerine Dream Aqualumiere Gloss (coral)
  • 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: Red Velvet = Fuchsia; Dear Cupcake = Paradisco; Refined = Soft & Gentle; Lollipop Loving = no dupe

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Red Velvet shadestick all over the lid as the base. On the inner lid, apply Goldmine eyeshadow using the 239. Apply Dear Cupcake eyeshadow to the middle of the lid. Darken the outer lid using Stars ‘n Rockets eyeshadow using the 239. Darken crease with Shadowy Lady eyeshadow using the 226, then overlay with Stars ‘n Rockets eyeshadow. Sweep Femme-fi eyeshadow underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with Urban Decay Ransom Liner on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Refined mineralize skinfinish using the 129, then highlight with Dior Coral Riviera blush with the 188. Apply Lollipop Loving lipstick to lips, and then top with Chanel Tangerine Dream Aqualumiere Gloss for color and shine.

    I love this look Christine. You look best in warm peachy tones. I just love how your cheeks glow in here

  5. You have such great imagination when it comes to eye colors! I would never have thought to put these together, but it looks great. I never use more than two shadows at once, I am SO stuck in my ways and trying to break out since I have so much makeup already! Thanks for the inspiration!

    I went to Macy’s yesterday in Sacramento and got Peppermint Patti, yay!

  6. You look very pretty!

    good to know about red velvet eating color. I kinda got that vibe when I swatched it. somehow it seemed more.. matte or something, than the other shadesticks.

    the look is still very pretty, i think i NEED to get that Ransom eyeliner!

  20. Bellissima

    Hey Christine! Gorgeous look! I was wondering if Sushi Flower or Soft Flower (From Emanuel) would be good dupes of Dear Cupcake? I want to get it but if those are dupes then I’ll save myself some money.

    This looks so amazingly vibrant. I tried to do something similar yesterday (used Evening Aura in place of Goldmine and used Bronze to neutral out the Stars n’Rockets some)and I see what you’re saying about Red Velvet. But it sure does make the pink stand out and it lasted all day without creasing (I did use UDPP under it tho’).

  48. calico

    Thats so cool! :)
    your hair is looking stunning here :)

  49. I love the contrast between the beautiful colorful eye and your charcoal shirt. Love it:)

  50. maxiene

    I was looking for a great pink look to do since I just dyed my hair a deep, rich brown. I came across this one and noticed that you had a gray top on. I’m wearing gray as well and thought this would be perfect! Thanks for this look!

  51. I really, really love how your hair looks here! :)
