I didn’t love this look as far as green looks go (not enough dimension), but at least I tried a different lip combo — you know, not something traditionally medium coral! My weekend is a bit of a bummer, so I hope yours is way better! I didn’t realize it until Wednesday in class, but I have an accounting midterm on Monday — so off to study group I go today for a few hours. Of course, more studying on Sunday and Monday ;) My only reprieve seems to be dinner with my parents to celebrate my Mom’s birthday. Boo!!

What are your weekend plans? Let me live through you vicariously!

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Golden Olive pigment (olive green base), Juxt eyeshadow (pastel green), Sumptuous Olive eyeshadow (olive green), Humid eyeshadow (forest green), Femme Noir (matte dark green), Nylon eyeshadow (frosty white-yellow), Urban Decay Honey 24/7 Liner (white), Plushlash mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: NARS Super Orgasm blush (soft peach-pink)
  • Lips: Antiquitease lipstick (coppery reddish brown), Moonstone lipglass (sheer peach-pink)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: Antiquitease = O; Moonstone = Moonstone lipgelee

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Golden Olive pigment all over the lid as the base with the 249. On the inner lid, apply Juxt eyeshadow using the 239. Apply Sumptuous Olive eyeshadow to the middle of the lid. Darken the outer lid using Humid and drag into crease using the 239. Darken crease with Femme Noir eyeshadow using the 239. Sweep Nylon underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with Urban Decay Honey 24/7 Liner on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Super Orgasm blush using the 129. Apply Antiquitease lipstick to lips, and then top with Moonstone lipglass for color and shine.

    I love the lipcolour most (not a huge fan of greens in general). The overall look is great though.

  7. Maren

    WOW, this colour looks so gorgeous on you! Beautiful!!

  8. Amanda

    It’s beautiful! So, what are you doing in an accounting class? I thought you had a different major…?

  9. DJ

    the lipcolour really makes your eyes pop. I am also a fan of monochrome lids…

    good luck with studying. it is really raining here (England), so I am hiding inside and playing with my Wii games.

    Christine! I’m so excited you did something different with your lips. I think they look great and I definitely think you should branch out with that aspect.

    The eyes look great…I have alot of those colors and I’m going to try the look.

    Not to be a jerk or anything, but can you show documentation/proof you that donated the 1000 dollars to breast cancer?

    And so proof that the prize thing was not a hoax?

    I love your blog/website, but this is the internet and I don’t want to be scammed.

    • I’ve posted the donation amount! I was unable to do it earlier, as I had to wait for PayPal to transfer the donations to my bank account (because you can only donate via credit card).

    I recently bought Juxt! And I love the colour!! However, I don’t know how to make the colour pop more – should I use a green base in order to make it a stronger green?

  14. love it! i like the lipcolor and the eyes are amazing

  15. claudia m.

    Holy cow that lip color is amazing!! I really like the whole look, but I can’t stop staring at the lips, I like!!

  16. Theresa

    You look gorgeous (as always!) Christine.

  17. Jenna
