I thought I’d keep it simple for today :) Took my boyfriend and his brother drunk mini-golfing (I’m allergic to alcohol, so I’m always DD!). Kind of fun?

What does everyone have planned for the weekend? I’m moving!  Incredibly exciting, right?  So not.

I used Soft Ochre paint pot all over lid, Ricepaper eyeshadow on inner half of lid, Charcoal Brown eyeshadow on outer lid and crease, Satin Taupe eyeshadow on outer crease, Goldmine eyeshadow lightly on outer lid/middle of lid, Ricepaper eyeshadow on brow bone to highlight, Urban Decay Stash 24/7 liner on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I had Margin blush with Dior Amber Diamond SkinShimmer on cheeks. I wore Fuschia Fix tinted lip conditioner with Take A Hint tendertone (LE) on lips.

  3. Lina

    This is a gorgeous look on you!

  4. Davina

    love it all but the cheeks & lips are divine! i may have to check out the tendertones after all. ;)

  5. gorgeous as always! you must’ve been a stand-out at the mini golf place!!

    Love the look and high five on the alcohol allergy. Whenever people find out I am allergic to alcohol they either look at me like I’m crazy or like that’s the saddest thing they ever heard.

    I have take-a-hint but it doesn’t look that great on me ! =( lol. Great look ! Simple but very lovely.

    Kobri and Christine…both of yuo and me make three that are allergic to alcohol…I know the “sad” look that you get, lol. It’s even funnier when I tell people I’m allergic to the cold (which I am – I swell up, turn red, and itch when my hands, etc. get too cold).

    And Christine – thanks for the look using Satin Taupe! I just bought it today…so now I have something I can do with it! :)

  9. Sash

    This is by far one of the sexiest looks I’ve seen in a while. And, it’s just so natural!
    I love it, Christine! And, I love ur top!
    I think I might try this look tomorrow. I’m kinda going out with friends since Thursday was my birthday!

  10. Ashlee

    OH yes I agree with Sash. This is one of those Perfect Christine looks.

    As for the weekend, nothing but homework. I have 8 exams left and I’m done with highschool. But geometry is such a pain.

  11. Carrie

    This looks so good! I really want that Stash pencil.
    Hey, I’m moving too! Moving is rough, but I also like it; it’s kinda fun, starting over and getting the opportunity to re-organize and re-think everything. Tomorrow we sign our new lease. I think I’ll wear makeup like this look.

    • Thanks, Carrie! I am really lovin’ Stash for something visible, but not so dramatic like black.

      Oh, good luck moving and everything with the new place. How do you like it so far? (Or have you not moved yet?)

  12. You look so gorgeous. I love this kind of understated but thoroughly put together look.

  13. Michelle

    This look is so beautiful, I want to try it. What do you recommend if I don’t have charcoal brown? I have wedge, I might try that. :)

  14. lauren

  17. Nell

    Really pretty look, love the lips especially.
    I hope it is not too hot this weekend in Northern California, it is awful having to move in the heat. I had to move once in 100 degree heat, had a heatstroke afterwards ;
    I´m having a garden party this weekend, but nothing wild, mostly babies and harassed mommies, well, that´s probably going to be quite wild after all ;)

  18. claudia m.

    I second Mukho, understated but put together, very nice.

    simple and yet gorgeous look…
    this look also scores 100% on the sexy scale too!

    ps. am so loving the layered hairstyle you’ve got there :)

  21. I’m allergic to alcohol, too! DD rules! =)

  22. Stephanie D

    That lip combo is so hot! BTW, I am loving your fuller eyebrows, I noticed you have grown them in. The shape looks much better.

  23. Stacey

    You look absolutely radiant, Christine :)

  24. I love this on you! Who’s taking care of the pup while you guys are packing and moving?

  25. Minty746

    Hi Christine! This is such a pretty look! You look amazing. Also, I love the lips. Now, I seriously MUST try out Fuschia Fix. I’ve never really been very interested in the Lip Conditioners just because they’re kind of bulky, and I’m not fond of sticking my fingers in lip jars; it’s a little unsanitary applying on the go (where my hands may not be very clean). But Fuschia Fix looks lovely with the shimmer from Take a Hint.

  26. Jan

    Gorgeous! You look like you’re glowing Christine! Love everything you’ve chosen to match the look.

    P.S Moving is fun, packing up is not! Lol.

    • Thanks, Jan :D This is definitely a look I’ll do again!

      LOL, I don’t know, the only good part is when you’re all settled in and unpacked!

  27. Chloe

    That look is insanely gorgeous!!! =O I’ve been feeling the need to go for a natural look lately and this look is just perfect!! =D

  28. san
