Today’s hair is brought to you by FHI Heat’s 1 1/4″ Curling Iron (review will come later). I really do need to practice sooo much more with a curling iron. I just get the crimped look with it! Not that I don’t like how it turned out, it’s just not what I was aiming for, LOL. I also just got several shades of YSL’s new Rouge Volupte lipsticks, and I am sooo in love. I have to go and check out some more next Thursday (since MAC has some launches coming out) for sure :) I did lip swatches earlier, and I’ll probably post ‘em tomorrow. Now, time to eat an early dinner and head off to my first day of MBA classes!

P.S. – A berry lip would have suited this sooo much better, and I will probably switch it/add a darker gloss on top. But I just loved the combo too much to change it right away :( It’s like the perfect pink!

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Blonde’s Gold pigment (light gold), Rose Blanc eyeshadow (white gold), Going Bananas eyeshadow (yellow), Goldmine eyeshadow (gold), Cranberry eyeshadow (cranberry), Sweet Chestnut eyeshadow (dark burgundy), Urban Decay Honey 24/7 Liner (gold), Chanel Exceptionnel mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Peachykeen blush (soft peachy pink)
  • Lips: YSL Peach Passion rouge volupte (bright peachy coral), Givenchy Pop Gloss in Plum by Night (subtle raspberry)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: Blonde’s Gold = Tan; Rose Blanc = Nylon; Going Bananas = Sour Lemon; Sweet Chestnut = Antiqued (for this look only);

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Blonde’s Gold pigment all over the lid as the base with the 249. On the inner lid, apply Rose Blanc eyeshadow with the 239 brush. On the middle portion of the lid, apply Going Bananas eyeshadow with the 239. Apply Goldmine eyeshadow to the outer third of the lid using the 239. Darken the outer lid using Sweet Chestnut eyeshadow and drag into crease using the 239. Gently sweep Cranberry eyeshadow directly in the crease with the 222 brush. Sweep Rose Blanc eyeshadow underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with Urban Decay Honey 24/7 Liner on lower lash line, and Chanel Exceptionnel mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Peachykeen blush using the 129. Apply YSL Peach Passion rouge volupte to lips, and then top with Givenchy Plum by Night pop gloss for color and shine.

  3. lisa

    Your skin looks different what have you been using lately is it a different foundation?

  4. You look so bright and fresh here. The gold liner is really accentuating your eyes.. they look so big (in a good way) – love this. :D

  5. grace

    hey christine i loveee this look.
    could you give suggestions on MAC lip products to get a similar lip?
    thanks

  6. Gorgeous lips!!!! You don’t think you could put up swatches of those products too, do you? :D I agree with the other commenter also, do you know any good dupes?

  7. I love the lips! Absolutely gorgeous. Perfect, perfect.

    Great look! A hint for the curling iron: When you clamp down on the hair, make sure you then roll the hair around the barrel, not back over the clamp. eg. if the clamp is on the top of the hair, than roll under. This should get rid of the crimped looked. It took me sooo long to figure this out, yet it’s so simple!

  9. F

    this looks great on you.

  10. Angie

    Just beautiful.

  13. Luv J

    I love this look.. you have a perfect glow! Colors are kept on the lighter side yet results are still sultry! What foundation/powder did you use?

  14. Marcela

    I was wondering if you could do a look (other than the one posted in the “purple” section) with the Thunder eyeshadow from last Fall’s storm collection. I usually just wear it with Chrystal Avalance or Smoke Signals Pigment in Silver Bell. Anything that I can wear with it to tone it down for the office?

    for perfect curls…i know it’s cheapy but it’s a good iron…i use vidal sassoon 1 inch ceramic tourmaline iron…i got it at rite aid…don’t know if u have different hair texture than mine…yours is more straight…but i curl my hair and it’s still curly 2-3 days later…it’s about 19.99 they sell it at rite aid…i start curling from the top section and curl up…then i loosen the iron and pull the hair as i curl so it’s curled from the top to bottom (not just straight up top and curled on bottom)…buy the curling iron it’s awesome and it doesn’t burn your hair…oh and i love ur lipstick lol :)

    A tip for your hair – less product on top, and don’t part so far over. Blow-dry your hair upside down, and the only products you need for your type of hair is a mousse and hairspray.. maybe a bit of root lifter in your roots. Pretty as always, beauuutiful eyeshadow, I love it.

    • My bangs are cut to part there… What kind of hair type do you think I have? Because I’m totally shocked you can tell through a photo, LOL! That’s crazy skills :)

      If I blow dried it upside down, I wouldn’t get the ends to curl inwards like I want :(

  17. I love the lower lashline colour! You look beautiful as always :) <3

    i really love bronzy colours. and you’ve done a great job here!
    one question… how do you get your eyeliner to come out so solid and smooth (as in they don’t look smudged at all)? i know it’s a common question but what happens with me is when i apply it, the lines i get aren’t as sharp and concise as the ones i see you have. so i must be doing something wrong!

    • Thanks so much, Viv! Hm, I don’t do anything special, I swear! But if you find that they’re not as sharp, you could try using a q-tip dipped in eye makeup remover to clean it up.

    Bella,bella, B-e-l-l-a!

  20. Sash

  22. Safia

    oh man, this has made me want the UD liner even more :(
    they don’t sell it where i live though, so could you suggest a decent substitute? you make it look absolutely gorgeous (and vice-versa)!
