Just had some fun playing around with the mineralize duos and went for something more over the top than anything else ;) I wanted to see how the green would play over a very green base. I also picked up two new duos and two new blushes to play with, which I’ll share with you later today or tomorrow :) (I have to work on my final draft of my argument to hand in tomorrow, so…!)

It’s Tuesday, and I’m feeling lazy as ever – all I want to do is play some Guitar Hero and bug Mellan. How are you guys pushing through the week?

I used True Chartreuse pigment on lid, Fresh Green Mix mineralize eyeshadow (solid side) (LE) all over lid, Shimmermoss eyeshadow on outer lid/crease, Sea & Sky mineralize eyeshadow (solid side) (LE) above crease, Gorgeous Gold eyeshadow above crease, Nylon eyeshadow to highlight brow, Graphblack technakohl on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I had Warm Soul mineralize blush (LE) on cheeks. I wore Soft Lust lipstick (LE) with Tartlette lipglass (LE) on my lips.

** These are recommendations for dupes based on permanent colors available — may not necessarily be identical; they are the closest I can think of!

Fresh Green Mix = Bitter; Sea & Sky = Freshwater; Warm Soul = Honour; Soft Lust = Sandy B; Tartlette = Lychee Luxe

  1. loving the greens on you!! this week sucks for me, it’s the busy season for the moving industry, so we are swamped with demanding (read: annoying) customers and problems moves. The only thing getting me through this week is the promise of a FULL WEEKEND OFF (first time in the last 3 months), a MAC package coming today (Electroflash and Sonic Chic goodies!!), and my Color Forms goodies being shipped on Friday (at least i can stalk it via DHL tracking!!).

    *sigh* next job will have nothing to do with phones, i swear. if i hear it ring one more time, it’s going out the window.

  2. wow… i really love the way you blend your eyeshadow… this is amazing christine =)

    I don’t like this look. Too over the top. It’d be alright if the shadow was more.. translucent? But good blending skills anyhow, and love the lips.

  4. Amy

    Oh and you shouldn’t fill in your brows that much, cause people’ll stare more at your brows than your eyes.

  5. Kristen Elisabeth

    I really love this! I don’t think it’s too much. But your brows do look different. Did you change them up somehow? Not bad different, though. Great job Christine!! I hope you don’t mind if I try this.

  7. Kella

    I love your green e/s combo! I’m at work so my Fresh Mix Green version is a lot mellower.

    • Thanks so much, Nartian :D

      What did you use with Fresh Green Mix today?

      • Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Celia Nartian

        Sorry for the late reply. I kept it simple w/Rollickin’ as base (’cause my Stila Jade smudgpot is becoming a dried out mess), Vex as highlight, and Carbon over Engraved as liner.

        Tried the new Love Thing Sonic blush (need to blend it out like mad) & Scant slimshine, since I went reddish/pink w/the blush. Otherwise, I would’ve gone w/a peachy blush & lip.

    You could make a fortune working as a makeup artist!!!
    i am sure others have suggested this career idea to You before :-)
    You could work for MAC,they would for sure appreciate Your talent.
    and You could get all the new stuff first :-))

    • Hi Zsofi,

      To be honest, I much prefer talking and reviewing and discussing makeup than I do applying makeup to others! This is my dream job, right here, at Temptalia :)

      • Zsofi

        :-)
        very good then,so You wont ever leave us alone :-)
        nice from You girl :-)
        frankly speaking i am a Temtalia-addict :-)
        my bf makes fun of me every day :-) sometimes he doesnt let me to the computer and lets me suffer a bit,so i can appreciate some Temptalia-time even better :-DDDD
