Kind of funny, because I wore this look to my parents’ house on Saturday, and my mom described it was, “Bitchy.” As in, I looked mean, like a bitch. Coming from my mom, it was about the last thing I thought she said. (She didn’t mean it badly, and I didn’t take offense!)

I used Mega-Rich pigment (LE) on lid, Goldmine eyeshadow on inner lid, Expensive Pink eyeshadow on middle of lid, Antiqued eyeshadow on outer lid and crease, Goldmine eyeshadow above crease, Say Yeah eyeshadow (LE) on brow, Goldmine eyeshadow on lower lash line, Graphblack technakohl on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I wore Ambering Rose blush on cheeks with Dior Amber Diamond SkinShimmer to highlight. I had Wild ‘Bout You lipstick (LE) with Real Desire lipglass (LE) and Venetian lustreglass on my lips.

    Absolutely stunning! Loved that lips!

  2. That’s funny that your mom thought you looked like a bitch. I bet it’s the red lips and the red in the eye shadow. Hilarious, though.

    And you look great. This is probably the best look you’ve done in a while, and that’s saying a lot since your looks are always great.

    Not bitchy. Hot and sexy!!!

  4. HeavenLeiBlu

    This is hot! My clerk at CVS had a similar look yesterday. I thought it was a bit much for the time and place, LOL but that’s always the case with her and her makeup, but it’s always good.

    Anyway, I was too shy to ask her what she used, so I’m SO glad you posted this.

  5. Kristy

    Oh , I LOVE it Christine!!!

  6. Ce

    Just lovely! & I loOove the lip color! :)

  7. Jennifer

    This is gorgeous Christine. I can see where you Mom got that from, but I think that is just a very commanding look. Love it tho:)

  8. Amanda

    Lol, it’s not so much bitchy as it is … vamp-y. It’s very pretty, though!

  9. grace

    yup this look is pretty harsh. it makes you look older, too.

  10. Marley

    Not bitchy at all! Lovely- do you like the Dior SkinShimmer? Do you think it would be too much on a NC15?

    • Thanks, Marley!

      I really like it… it just doesn’t have a lot of color to it, honestly, so I think it would be fine on a NC15. I’m NC30 and it more or less seems to deposit the right amount of shimmer on my cheeks — it works for me like MSFs seem to work for everyone else!

  11. Glosslizard

    Wow, those lips are gorgeous! I suppose the LE’s on those are long gone?

  12. micex

    I love the lips. And the whole look is great too. But, and maybe its because there’s so much so much red or maybe the way your hair is pulled back, your eyebrows look too severe and obvious, they look too heavy for your face. I think you might’ve done a little too mcuh eyebrow pencil or powder. Everything else is great though.

  13. I think you look rather vampy, not bitchy! Hot look, Christine! I may just change my mind about Expensive Pink!

  14. Haydee

    You look like a “hot” mami!

  15. cloudburst

    How do you like Megarich?

    • It is not bad – the texture is great, and the color itself is gorgeous. I’m not entirely sure how often I’d use it, just because it is a rich coppery orange color.

  16. MΓ‘rcia

    Stunning, love that lip colour on you!

  17. Zsofi

    The last pic is my fave,love the color combo and the blending :-))))))

  18. Your blending is amazing =) I guess your mom said that cause of the dark colours you used, but you look so pretty!!

  24. gio

    This look is beautiful, love the lip color

  25. Rubi

    I think it looks Mega-Rich! As in don’t f*&$ with me. Other than the Barbie look, this is my favorite. Just looks super classy but hot.

  26. Jessica

    Haha, where did she get “bitchy” from? It’s so pretty!

  27. orsolina

    beautiful! lips are so sexy :)

  28. claudia m.

    when I opened the page the first words that came to mind was “in charge” and being painfully blunt myself I can see how your mom might have said that, hehehe.
    I love it, looks very put together and love the lipcolor. I might print you and take you to the make up counter w/ me so I won’t forget what I’m looking for (like I always do)

  29. Lucy

    That’s funny about the “bitch” comment. My asian grandmother said something like that to me once about my makeup… Substitute “bitch” for “whore”. I was like, “You’re just jealous grandma.” LOL

  30. Kella

    I’m an advocate for strong brows, so I’m surprised I’m saying this, but I noticed in your last few looks.. I think your brows are actually too thick. I think it looks awkward because you don’t line your top lash line… I would line the top outer lash line, and NOT the bottom, if you want to keep the bigger brows. That said, you are beauuutiful as always. & I agree with what someone else said, not bitchy, vampy! Good for a different look.

  31. lala

    you do look fierce!!!!!!!!!!!!!! lol your mom is too funny though :)…she means you look “powerful” lol

  32. Skyler

    *LOL* That is too funny about your mom’s comments. I don’t agree but I guess I can sort of see what she means… The look exudes confidence because, like the above person said, it’s fierce. It’s bold, it’s beautiful, and it stands out. But to me, that’s not “bitchy,” that’s awesome. πŸ˜€ Besides, you can totally carry it! I love these colours together and I absolutely LOVE the lip combo–WOW. It’s one of my favourites yet! <3

    • My mom tried to correct herself and was like, “you look mean!” instead. It’s all good, because I was too busy laughing to be offended, lol.

      Thank you!!

  33. i bet it’s the red lips that made your mom think that lol and prolly the strong eyebrows too, but i have to say HOT HOT HOT! πŸ˜€

  34. Jasmine

    You look gorgeous! I’m so jealous, haha. That lip colour is really nice as well

  35. Jennifer

    Funny!! LOL…

    I love the eye look – I would definitely wear that. I don’t think the lips are my thing though. I think I’d wear more of a brownish/slightly red color, softer, closer to the shirt kind of lip rather than the super bright stuff.

  36. dawn

    oohh, i really love this one! It’s fierce and bad ass, which is prob why your mom says it looks ‘bitchy’ LOL! take it as a compliment. HOT LOOK!

  37. Pia

    BITCHY??? NOT AT ALL!!! You look totally gorgeous with this look. And how come wild bout you didn’t look as pretty on me as it did on you? talk about life being unfair! lol

  38. Nicky

    Wooh, pretty!
    Matches with your shirt eh <3

  39. Bettina

    that’s lovely, I need to start branching into reds and golds more..damn I wish they still made that lip color though!
