I wanted to try to do something subtle, but with some shape, so I figured why not take my sculpting and shaping powders for a spin? I mean, I bought them all, and I pretty much never use them, LOL. And booo, I wanted to get my eye brows done, but the lady I go to is on vacation ’til Sunday :(

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Soft Ochre paint pot (creamy neutral base), Lightsweep shaping powder (PRO) (soft nude), Sculpt sculpting powder (PRO) (soft taupe), Soft Focus shaping powder (PRO) (soft yellow nude), Urban Decay Bourbon 24/7 Liner (warm brown), Too Faced Lash Injection Pin Point mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Dainty mineralize blush (soft peachy pink)
  • Lips: Burnin’ lipstick (dark purple), Ms. Fizz dazzleglass (shimmery fuchsia-purple)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: Dainty = Peachykeen; Burnin’ = Cyber; Ms. Fizz = Venetian

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. Apply Lightsweep shaping powder all over lid with the 239. Gently apply Sculpt sculpting powder into the crease with the 239 to define and add shadow. Sweep Soft Focus shaping powder underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with Urban Decay Bourbon 24/7 Liner on lower lash line, and Too Faced Lash Injection Pin Point mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Dainty using the 129. Apply Burnin’ lipstick to lips, and then top with Ms. Fizz dazzleglass for color and shine.

    Love the eyes. It’s like nude, but better.

  2. Nicole

    The eyemakeup is amazing, like nothing. Good job. I’m not sure what to think about the lipcolor. It seems to be a little gross in my eyes.

  3. katja

    the lipcolor suits you perfect. really amazing! i wish i could wear dark lips too :D

  4. Jennifer

    The eye makeup is amazing! It’s like… the perfect nude eye!

    The lips shocked me a bit (I was expecting more of the natural stuff) but I really like the color and the overall effect.

  5. anna

    The eyemakeup is gorgeous! And that lip color looks great on you. I wish I could pull dark lips off as well.

  8. Leah

    Love the concept and the execution. Great job again, Christine!

  9. Angi

    Wow, love this look. I am going to steal it when I am brave enough to give the bold dark lip a go.

  10. I love it! This looks so pretty with your dark hair and it matches good with your shirt too :)

  11. Claire

    Such a gorgeous look – wish I could pull that off (not sure I could though – am blonde, tanned and have blue eyes!).

    Your skin looks great here – what foundation do you use?

  12. cloudburst

    I might have to buy that lipstick if they still have it!

  13. How do you like that mascara??? PLEASE do a review on it, I’ve been wondering if I should buy it.

    It seems a hassel that it’s not completely waterproof.

  14. Love love love that lipstick! I’ve got to have it!!!

  15. Hi, Christine! You look gorgeous with dark lips, as always, but what I’m really curious about is the mascara. I’ve tried Two Faced Lash Injection and thought it yielded bold dramatic lashes, but it really clumped after a couple months. What’s the deal with this new one?

    • I’ll be reviewing it in a bit :) The problem sounds like the product dried up, to be honest. It either dries up quickly on its own OR it wasn’t closed tightly at some point.

    Christine, I like the look, but I honestly can’t tell you have any pro products on your eyes. All I can tell is the paint pot, eyeliner and mascara. I guess you’re really good at blending.

  17. Nana

    Love, love, love the look! At first I thought it was either Kirsch or Bing mattene on your lips. Obviously I’m wrong :)

  18. claudine

    lovely i try the nude eye next time with my russian red lippie and my cult of cherry lipglass thanks for the inspiration

  19. pia

    amazing lip color, girl!

  20. viv

    i still get creasing problems from time to time!

  21. your look posts are sooo addicting!! :)

  22. abby

    Love this look on you!!!

  23. abby

    Do you think applying the lightsweep powder alone would look as nice? I haven’t seen a neutral eye quite like it and i loooove it. Plus everything looks great on you :)
