This is from last night, where I was just playing around with makeup in order to avoid studying. :) I was trying to do something super over-the-top, and when it all finished, I was like, “You know, I could see myself wearing this out!” Not for everyday of course, but you never know!

I used Blacktrack fluidline on lid, Carbon eyeshadow all over lid, Freshwater eyeshadow above crease, Turquatic reflects glitter above crease, Vex eyeshadow on brow, Freshwater eyeshadow on outer lid, Vex eyeshadow on lower lash line, Feline kohl power (LE) on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I wore Sunbasque blush on cheeks. I had Brew lipstick with Comet Blue dazzleglass (LE) my lips.

    OMFG! OFCOURSE YOU COULD SO WEAR THIS OUT! IT’S SO FREAKING HOT ON YOU! I AM SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO IN LOVE WITH THIS LOOK, CHRISTINE! SO FIERCE!
    RAWR!

    • lol! I was going for SOOO over the top that I wouldn’t wear it out except for a very, very special occasion, but it turn out that way.

      Thank you!

  3. I love the drama of the look. It would be great to see if we can achieve the same look with Naugthy Nauticals products. Anyway, this is a great look to get people motivated to use blue again. Love Vex, Brew + Cosmic blue is genius.

    • Hey Bart! I was thinking a bit about NN, actually, while doing this, so I’m sure you could! Mutiny and Bell Bottom Blue would be awesome in it.

  4. Kelly

  14. OMG! Awesome! Way to make Comet Blue wearable! That looks awesome!!

  15. LOVE this look on you! Great picks.

  16. Joli

    Ah yes, good to see someone else come around to wearing Sharks themed eye makeup. Of course you did pick the wrong day. The next game is tomorrow. But I’m sure you’ll have no problem re-creating it. ;-)

  17. Michelle

    I’m officially coming out of lurker status to say that this look is HOT! I think this and that last smokey, green/gold/black look you did have been your best… really outside your norm, and it makes your eyes really pop.
    It’s inspiring enough to actually get a MAC collection going (that is, once I’m done with my unpaid internship and find one where I get paid!)

    • lol, well welcome to non-lurkdom :D

      Thank you Michelle! I actually used to do these types a looks more often, so it’s not really new for me, lol, but it was awhile ago.

      Ohh, I hope you enjoy your new MAC when you get it!

  18. Brittany

    I loooooove this look!!! It is so gorgeous and dramatic! Amazing!!

  25. Beda

  26. Christina

    Beautiful!!! I am probably going to buy the Comet Blue Dazzleglass now because your lipcolor is PERFECT! Great job!

  27. Angie

    The eyeshadows and the lipcolour go great together! and the cheeks! all the focus is on your eyes dear. It looks good!

  28. sarah

  29. JackA.

  31. danielle

  33. suparna

  34. tricia

    oh my goshhhhhhh! this si so beautiful, great, intense, and fab. i so love this look. the pics actually look like they came form a magazine and u took them ur self! the reflects glitter is a pigment or e/s. cause i recall u saying glitter is not safe for the eye.

    • Aww, thank you so much Tricia! Yes, it’s reflects glitter, which is not eye safe. I used mixing medium to adhere it, but I also didn’t wear this look for more than ten minutes!

  35. This is such an awesome look! The dark coulours really suit your face better than pastels, IMHO! Rock on woman :P!!
    What did you wear to the Lancome Event?

  36. becky

    Gorgeous look- i luv all these darker coloured looks on you-you look stunning!! Tutorial? pretty please? lol, can i request a fuchsia-black look?! ahaha, im getting ahead of myself!
    I LOVE UR MAKEUP!!!! FABULOUS!!!

  37. Tiffany

    definitely very sexy awesome look! i’ll have to try blacktrack on the lid!

  38. Stephanie D

    I do love these colors together, but I think the Freshwater would look nicer on you if it wasn’t blended so high up above and outside the crease. Looks like you had fun though!

  39. fredsonic

    Great work. Well done. Much more fruitful than study!

  40. Yvette

  46. Jill

    Can this look be done without the glitter?

  47. Josee

    this is one of the only looks on the site where i saw the close up and was like “thts a wierd look”. and then i saw the face shot and thought “wow thts so pretty!” . i would totally do a look like this for everyday wear. im surprised, i didnt think i would like it tht much considering how i felt about the close up, but im thinking of copying this for class tomorow

  48. Laycca

    Hi, I just wanted to say you’re website is amazing! I’ve been following it for about a year and I today I tried this style and it came out great! Instead of using a black I used a really dark gray and used a brighter blue closer to teal, but it was definitely a great experiment, so thanks again for the wonderful ideas! I’ve raved about your site to anyone I can tell!

    • Thanks so much, Laycca! I’m happy to hear that this worked out well for you, and I love that you used your own twist by using a dark gray and a brighter blue!

  49. Bettina

    That’s kinda fun Christine, it looks like something to wear going out at night. Love the grr face btw, that’s so something I would do.

  50. Laura

    Wow!
    This is pretty!
    Very bold, but I like it a lot.

    Oh,why can’t we see all the looks in gallery view anymore?
    ’cause I really liked it that way, it was very clear that way.
