Happy Tuesday everyone! :) Hopefully those of you who celebrate the holidays have finished your shopping, but if you haven’t–much luck and patience wished your way for all your last minute shopping. I’m totally going to Safeway to pick up gift cards for the several people who failed to give me wish lists!

I did this look two days ago, and I really liked how it came out! But it’s hard for me to resist blues and making them smoky and dark. 😉

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Bell Bottom Blue pigment (navy blue base), Vellum eyeshadow (duochrome white), Arctic Grey eyeshadow (light silver), Mont Black eyeshadow (black), Penultimate Liner (black), Plushlash mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Enough Said blush (soft peach)
  • Lips: Up Note lipstick (beige nude), Naked Frost lipglass (taupe)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: Bell Bottom Blue = Navy Blue; Arctic Grey = Electra; Mont Black = Black Tied; Enough Said = Bronzer; Up Note = Cherish; Naked Frost = Mad Cap

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Bell Bottom Blue pigment all over the lid as the base with the 249. On the inner lid, apply Vellum eyeshadow using the 239. Apply Arctic Grey eyeshadow to the middle of the lid. Darken the outer lid using Mont Black packed on and drag into crease using the 239. Darken crease with Mont Black eyeshadow using the 239. Sweep Vellum underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with Penultimate Liner on upper lash line, Vellum eyeshadow on lower lash line (use the 219), and Plushlash mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Enough Said blush using the 129. Apply Up Note lipstick to lips, and then top with Naked Frost lipglass for color and shine.

    Very pretty! I like it! I LOVE the lips. I’m trying to get my perfect neutral lip down, but they are NOT working with me 😐
    Yours are gorgeous though :)

  2. Anitacska

    Gorgeous gorgeous eyes! Wish I could do smoky eyes like that *sigh*. Less keen on the lips, but the overall look is very nice. Never got Enough Said, maybe I should, it’s a lovely colour.

  3. Vee

    I LOVE how vibrant this is! The coordination between the lips and the eyes is faaaaabulous. You look stellar, Christine!

  4. Natasha

    I love it!!! You know, you look extra pretty w/ blue eyeshadow. I think it’s the whole look itself w/ the nude lips, but your face always brightens out nicely w/ blue shadows!

  5. Okay, um….so how bout I love this SOOO much! This is awesome, Christine. I love that icy effect.

    I don’t know about everyone else, but I actually love this collection.

  6. Ka Pow! That’s what I think of when I see this look. It really grabs your attention. In a good way!

    I have to say, I’m really glad I bought a bunch of items from Chill. I wasn’t excited at all about the collection. Then I saw it in person and tried on the items and was totally impressed. Now that you’ve done all these great looks – I’m even more excited. I’ve even duplicated two of them and they’ve turned out great! Thanks Christine!

  8. charlene

    wow i love this!

  9. Shayla

    Love this! It really makes your eyes pop :)

    How do you find the Penultimate liner?

  10. Brittany

    Oh wow, that is GORGEOUS! I already know that I’m getting a MAC gift certificate for Christmas, so I can finally start my collection :) I may have to get some of these colors!

  11. Sash

    So, like I have nothing from “Chill”. Now, I’m thinking a want a lil something, something! The eyes are just amazing! And the lips, damn those lips!

    I noticed you used the following lipstick in this look as well as these two others in another ‘Chill’ collection look:

    Up Note lipstick (beige nude);
    Style It Up lipstick (nude), Cult Fave lipglass (pink)

    Are they all LE from previous MAC collections? I didn’t see them on the MAC website.


    • They were both limited edition. Cherish and Blankety are both good nude lipsticks that are still available :) Cult Fave was also limited edition, but you can try any pink gloss.

  13. Nicole

    Hammer, perfect creation.

  14. Lingping

    Thanks for a gorgeous look, Christine! I love those colors on you. And your new short hair is super cute :)

    Merry Christmas!

  15. Kayella

    This made me want to run out and buy vellum, haha.

  16. DevilishDoll

    Can’t wait to try this look. I might do it for Christmas day. Is Vellum all you used on the lower lashline? It never looks that pigmented on me.

  17. bec

    wow, what an intense look! totally have to try this one out!

  18. Jenna

    How do you not look overdone and yet so gorgeous in blue eyeshadow! Seriously!

    • LOL, awwww. I feel *so* overdone in real life, though. It’s mostly because I don’t go so bold as often, so I’m not as confident as I used to be. But it’s all good 😉

  19. Beautiful look, Christine! I really like the lighter colour on the lower lashline as opposed to a black. Makes the look more interesting :)

  20. Very beautiful! It suits you!

  21. Kristelle

    and just when i think it couldn’t get any worse… the lips are nice but the eyes are a muddled mess! horrendous..

  22. Victoriamm

    I think the eyes look a lil harsh round the edges – sowwy but the colours look gorgoeus on you!!!

  23. Rebecca

    I love the eyes! Especially in the second to last pic – they are perfectly blended and all the colors go together so well.

  24. Rosey
