I used True Chartreuse pigment on lid, Goldmine eyeshadow on inner lid, Juiced eyeshadow on middle of lid, Swimming eyeshadow on outer lid and crease, Humid eyeshadow on outer crease lightly, Bitter eyeshadow above crease, Ricepaper eyeshadow on brow, Goldmine eyeshadow on lower lash line, and Graphblack techankohl on lower lash line. I wore Hipness blush on cheeks. I had Rozz Revival lipstick with Poetique lipglass on my lips.

    I love it! Very summery look indeed :)

  2. Ceci

    That’s a really pretty look on you. By the way: How do you keep your skin so clear? It always looks nice in your tutorial pics.

  3. Tekoa

    I can feel the sunshine from here. What colours did you use? I so need to get a true yellow eyeshadow.

  4. katie

    it’s so pretty!
    i just found out about your site two days ago, and I love it!
    all your tutorials are really helpful/good, and i just love this site already.

    I love the colors, what inspires you, how do you come up with such amazing creations?

    Totally pretty, Christine! I think it would be cool if you told us in the future Looks features and Tutorials features where you wore the look (school, clubbing, dinner, lunch).

    • Thanks, Shefali :)

      I’d be happy to, but more often than not, I just do the look to share with readers rather than to go out, LOL. I’m basically at school or at home these days.

    “Summer is here.” I’d believe you if it wasn’t 17 degrees out right now 😛 haha

  8. lala

  9. amy

    Could you start saying what mascara you’re using in the looks too?

  10. Nell

    wonderful look, your technique is flawless
    but summer???? I wish, outside snow is falling!!!

  11. Gio

    That’s a very nice look, very summery. Love the colors!

  12. Erin

    Totally cute! The tank top is a nice touch. You can pull those yellows off, but with my bluegreenpurple undertones, I bet it would just look sick on me. I am GREEN with envy. :)

    • Thanks, Erin! I loveee that pale yellow for clothes, I was so addicted last year.

      I think you could rock yellow, because I’ve seen it on ALL skin tones!

  13. BaDKiTTy

    I Love this look!
    Not sure if I can wear these colours, I am NC30, blue eyes. What do ya think? Can you do a tut on this one? Please?! :)

  14. This is lovely :) And a huge reminder that it will soon be winter here, eek!

  15. Janis

    It’s nice to see you do looks using perm colors once in a while :) This looks really summery love it!

    “Summer is here” for u Christine! We’re still having snow storms in Canada!=(

  17. Hey Cristine,

    I always luved these lively colours.

    This is so beautiful! I absolutely love this look! I have a question though. How do you apply liquid liner to the bottom lash line? Whenever I try it’s either very faint or it gets into my eye and I have to blink a few times to get the black out of my eye.

    • Tina

      Oops, I now know that area is called the lower waterline (I looked at your eye diagram :))

    • Hey Tina!

      I do it very, very slowly and with a very fine point brush/liner brush. It does take some time and patience to get it down!

      You might be using too much too quickly if you’re getting it into your eye!

  19. Sash

    I seriously have to copy this look! I LOVE IT! Whenever we get some “Summer” here in Canuck (Canada) =(.

  20. Pearl

    It look OK…but you have way too much make up on!!! You need to tone it down a bit…look at magazine covers and you will notice that they don’t exactly pile it on like you do!

  21. Pearl

    Make sure you take off all of your makeup at night Christine, leaving makeup on your skin is really bad and it will sometimes cause breakouts and then you’ll put on more makeup and the cycle continues…Go easy!

    Hi Christine!

    I was wondering if you could tell me what kind of mascara you’re using and if it clumps at all. I’ve been using the L’Oreal voluminous in carbon black and it clumps like crazy! Trying to search for a better one, help!!

    • I currently use MAC’s Plushlash in Plushblack, and I don’t find it clumps very much at all… when it gets older/drier, it may happen but not too much.

  23. Erin

    I just wanted to say thank you for this look! Its soooooo pretty! You gave me a great idea!!! You are very inspiring.

    Despite what others say *hisses teeth*, you apply makeup very nicely and it’s not “too much”!
