My Election Day look! :) The boyfriend *loved* the pink lips!

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Softwashed pigment (silver base), Silver Ring eyeshadow (silver), Knight Divine eyeshadow (silver-black), Deep Truth eyeshadow (dark blue), Shroom eyeshadow (neutral highlighter), Urban Decay Ye-yo 24/7 Liner (white), Plushlash mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Enough Said blush (soft peach)
  • Lips: YSL Lingerie Pink lipstick (cool pastel pink), Cult Fave lipglass (pink)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: Softwashed = Silverstroke; Enough Said = Bronzer; Lingerie Pink = Snob; Cult Fave = Pinkarat

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 Silver Ring eyeshadow using the 239. Apply Knight Divine eyeshadow to the middle of the lid. Darken the outer lid using Knight Divine packed on and drag into crease using the 239. Darken crease with Deep Truth eyeshadow using the 239. Sweep Shroom underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with Urban Decay Ye-yo 24/7 Liner on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Enough Said blush using the 129. Apply YSL Lingerie Pink lipstick to lips, and then top with Cult Fave lipglass for color and shine.

    I think he’s going “look at my eyelids, what pretty fur colour I have” to match your picture above :-)

  8. gio

    This look is beautiful and your dog is so cute!

  9. Sandy

    beautiful look Christine, I hadn’t seen a lot of silver-ish look from you before, so this is great :)

    Your dog is the cutest thing ever btw

  10. Your dog is freakin adorable his ears look SO soft! Oh also I totally dig the silver eye, that’s right up my ally. Love grey and silver eyes, it looks fab!

    • He is pretty soft! My mom always comments on how soft his fur is. I think it’s his vitamin E supplements, LOL. I need to get on that train.


  11. Wowwwwwwwwwwwwwww! Christine, def. one of your best. Love it.

    OMG–Mellan!: who’s a cutie? who’s a cutie?

  12. Nicole

    I have to do this look, when I go out next time using Waft, Gentle Fume and a mix of Constast & Tilt.

  13. Brittany

    Ooooh, I so love this look! It’s gorgeous!

  14. Beautiful look as always! You seem to be really enjoying Enough Said, which is funny because everyone I know has been raving to no end about Stark Naked. But Enough Said looks gorgeous on you, so I totally understand :)

    That’s so cool that you used Yeyo! Do you know how people sometimes use white eye pencils to line their waterline to open up their eye? I was wondering, do you think that Yeyo would be appropriate for that? Or would it be too bright. Also, do you think it could be used for highlighting an inner corner?

    • Thank you! I adore Enough Said on me :)

      Ye-yo is not as white as I’d like. It’s almost like a silvery-white, IMO! It would be fine to open up eyes, though. It’s definitely not too bright at all! But I might go with Fascinating eye kohl (I believe that’s MAC’s white one) for a whiter look.

  15. Sash

    VERY HOT! I love this! Smokey eyes usually look great on most people, I think.
    You have such luscious lips! JELLING!

  16. Kendra

    I love your lips and your doggie is so adorable! Damn you with your tan! I’m fading back to my pastey white self :(

    • LOL! I think my “tan” has faded and I’m back to my normal color, but I’m not sure, because my legs still match my arms, which never happens in the winter, LOL.

      Thank you :)

  17. Rebecca

    I just have to say, YSL makes some of the best baby/light blue-pink lipsticks over the years. I am sooo going out to get this one now!

  18. Louise

    WOw – that is an amazing look! I’m in love with the lip colour/gloss combination.I’m doing some shopping after work tonight, and I’ve just added both to the list. YSL do the most fantastic pinks.

  19. Ruth

    I plan on going to see the rouge volupte lipsticks in a couple of weeks, no doubt I’ll cave and buy 2 or 3 or 4 !!!!!!!! Huge kisses to the prettiest little man on earth, lots of soft velvet ear rubs.

  20. Kristelle

    this is not a good look for you.. the eyes need better blending and the lips are way too coll for your skin tone.. mellan remains adorable..

  21. Rebecca


    I think the important part is she is gracious enough to share her looks and daily experiments with us. I know everyone whom experiments end up with a look that may not suit their skin tone or features 100% every time.

    I used to be stuck in a glowy skin/black liner/pink lips look for a while and these blogs have really helped me get back on the artistic bandwagon. (Thanks Christine et al!)

  22. pia

    whoa! I so love the gunmetallish color of this look. Awesome!!!

  23. Jenna

    I thought the blue looked really striking! In a good way :) I hope Mellan’s in good health now though πŸ˜›

  24. nat

    i loved your eyes and lips. i think the blush is a bit too orangey for this look though, might just be my personal preference:) thanks for posting, as always!

  25. danielle

    mellan is the cutest adorable dog ever!

    your look is fabulous like always and it looks so smooth.

  26. SnickerDoodle

  35. Kella

    This look is so unique. Love the lower lashline.

  36. Bettina

    Oohh this is pretty….I have at knight diving and deep truth but I have to find a sub for silver ring but yes this may be what I wear to work tomorrow. You inspire me to try new things and step out of my box make up wise a little more everyday Christine so thanks for all that you do. I think that dog is closing his eyes and wishing for more dog treats…he is soo cute.

  37. hi

    I’m not sure how I like this look on you. I think if you changed up the blush for a pale pink like Well Dressed or Stark Naked it might be better, since the warmness of Enough Said contrasts with your cool pink lips and cool blue eyes – not in a good way. Pretty lips and eyes, though! :)

  38. Jody

    Omg Christine, this is gorgeous!! This is my new favorite look on you. I have to try this one. I finally have most of the products to do it and what I don’t have I have to have now. :) Mellan is soooo adorable too.

  39. Jody

    I forgot to ask this, you state that you used Softwashed pigment but I don’t see in the directions where you applied this?
