MAC has recently opened up The Originals national contest, which can be entered online to US residents age 18 or older.  I encourage you all to enter, but make sure you enter soon, as they take 1-2 days to review and accept your entry.  This is the look I used to enter the contest…

I used Chartreuse pigment on all over lid, Overgrown eyeshadow on lid, Electric Eel eyeshadow on crease, Freshwater eyeshadow above crease, Gorgeous Gold eyeshadow on brow, Aqualine liquid last liner on lower lash line, Overgrown eyeshadow below lower lash line, Reflects Turquatic glitter on outer lower lash line, Blacktrack fluidline on upper lash line, Reflects Turquatic glitter on upper lash line. I wore Sunbasque blush with Sculpt sculpting powder to contour and Dancing Light beauty powder to highlight. I had Fun Fun lipstick with Poetique lipglass and Reflects Bronze glitter on my lips.

    A beautiful mermaid. Best of lucks.

  3. good luck with the competition. It’s bold, it’s dramatic and it’s everything an original should be.

  4. That’s hot! You are flawless!

    Hey, what did you do with your fancy self after you took these pictures?

  5. awesome! you look like a mermaid, i love it.

  6. Erin

    Beautiful! I’d probably go all out and throw some halflashes on, but maybe that’s not so “original”. Hehe.

    • Thanks, Erin! OMG, I sat there, for at least half hour, if not longer, trying to get false lashes on (since I already know I cannot apply false lashes for the life of me, I attempted it *before* I applied makeup). It was NOT working, so I gave up.

  7. Wow! Great look. Good luck:)

  8. Mary

    Good luck!! I LOVE the eyes!

  9. kat

  10. Katie

    That is gorgeous! Sending you good vibes so that you can win! :)

  11. Carrie

    I’m in love with your lower lash line! That color is so nice. And of course anything chartreuse has been my obsession for about 6 months now.

    Good luck!

    • Thanks, Carrie! Aqualine is really, really lovely. True Chartreuse pigment is probably one of my favorite pigments ever! The color is so VIBRANT!

  12. Beautiful!!! I hope you win! Your designs are always SO pretty!


    Ur like the only person that can pull that off!

  14. The lips are killer. I love the colour on you!

    Good on you for daring with the eyes….it looks good on you, but I don’t think it would as good on me.


  15. victoria

    yes, you look like one of those beautiful mermaids from the movies. good work christine. the colors are beautiful and suits your complexion. the colors are well defined and the liner just pops. it’s so pretty, i wanted to see what outfit you’d wear. good luck, this looks a winner.

  16. Tekoa

    Dang, you should be in a Brazilian parade. All the other gals should just start cleaning their makeup brushed and admit defeat.

  17. Tonee

    What can I say???? FABULOUS!!! Just FABULOUS!!!

  18. Claudine

  19. Camilla

  22. zainy


    Luvely cristine!!Hope u win,but plz dont mind me saying that,this look….we really cant do outside and show it to others,its tooo bright and like tooooo much…or really can we??CONFUSED!!


    • Thanks Zainy! You know, as bold as it was, I think you could wear it out. Sure, going to the grocery store, a bit much, but it’s not so over the top that you couldn’t pull it off. As long as you go out confident, it’s all good! To make it less in-your-face, just go less on the lower liner (less shadow on it).

  23. Myra

    Ok so I voted for you, not sure what you win, but good luck

  24. dawn

    Great look..As always. Good Luck!

  25. Woho, good luck to you in the contest! I love this look, it’s like a mermaid! So beautiful Christine, you nail each and every look!

    And about going out with a bold look – why shouldn’t you? I do it all the time! This is me today:

    I think “can’t” in fusion with “makeup” sounds just too boring!

  26. Mimi

    Love it!!! You could totally rock this for Rio Carnival 2008!!! :)

  27. kat
