Yeah, I put on a full face of makeup to pack up my apartment! So what! ;)

I used Uppity fluidline (LE) on lid, Femme-fi eyeshadow (LE) on inner lid, Gorgeous Gold eyeshadow on middle of lid, Humid eyeshadow on outer lid and crease, Gorgeous Gold eyeshadow above crease, Femme-fi eyeshadow on brow and lower lash line, Feline kohl power (LE) on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara. I had Margin blush on cheeks. I wore Tiger Tiger lipstick (LE) with Pink Grapefruit lipglass (LE) on my lips.

** These are recommendations for dupes based on permanent colors available — may not necessarily be identical; they are the closest I can think of!

Uppity = Indianwood; Femme-fi = Shroom; Feline = Graphblack; Tiger Tiger = Peachstock; Pink Grapefruit = Lychee Luxe

    So pretty! And yea, I know what you mean by wearing makeup when you don’t even have to. I do it all the time, LOL.

    • It does! LOL, geez. Where were you when I paid $500 for them to move my 1 bedroom apt?! lol. I get my boxes from usedcardboardboxes.com usually, not TOO bad in price!

    Lovely look for you. I can empathize with the apartment packing, as I am currently engaged in the same activity!

  4. Kristy

  5. lala

    I love this look on you…so soft like fluffy clouds lol…your lip coloring reminds me of sockhop :)..I h

  6. Liz

    I love when you do a look and I already have the colors! I checked out Neo Sci-Fi this weekend and picked up Femme fi and Pink Grapefruit (among other things, by the way I LOVE the Solor Riche bronzer). It looks great!

  7. Stacey

    I love how soft you’ve made Humid turn out. I’m really enjoying your softer looks at the moment :)

  8. Shayla

    I think the Humid pulls out the slight bit of green in your eyes, Christine :) Very nice!

  9. Nell

    LOL, I also wear full makeup for the unlikeliest ventures, and why not, one deserves to look pretty even when hauling boxes around!
    Lovely look as always, thank you! (I totally love femme-fi myself, it is gorgeous!)

  10. Hey Cristine,

    Girl u r looking like a bunch of GRAPES!VERY SWEET!.

    Dont u feel heavy weraing full makeup while packing ur apartment?!!

    Zzainy..

    • Thank you so much!! You know, to be honest, it is applied lightly and I never wear a ton of foundation, so it doesn’t feel heavy in the least!

  11. K

    More power to ya, Christine! Hehe. It’s the best moving make-up I’ve ever seen!

  12. Jennifer

    I adore this look – I am going to have to try this ASAP. Maybe even tomorrow!!

  13. Samantha

    Very pretty look! What foundation are you using if you don’t mind me asking? Looks great and photographs well! I’m having trouble finding a good foundation, especially for the summer months. Thanks!

    • Thanks, Samantha! I use Studio Fix Fluid, actually – have been for the past 2-3 years (well, whenever it came out – then I was hooked). I tend to sheer it out a bit by spritzing my brush with water before I apply, too.

  14. Tina

    Haha I also wear make up when I don’t really have to. But gorgeous look :) I might have to try it when when I move into a dorm this fall!

  15. Looking great as usual! Make up is just fun to apply and I can often be found applying make up even on a rainy day when I’m stuck indoors! Well, why not?

    • Thanks so much :D I used to apply a full face of makeup right before bed, LOL. I have plenty of makeup to go through (and probably never will get through it all)!

  16. Chloe

    I love how it looks soft and noticeable. Sometimes I feel that soft colors aren’t really noticeable. So, are you staying in the same area or are you moving far away?

    • Hey Chloe!

      Thanks so much! :D I like the way a pop of color can add to a look.

      The same general area – maybe 10-15 minutes away from the old place, luckily!

  17. marielle

    This is so pretty. I love how you list dupes for the LE shadows. It’s really frustrating when you want to try a look done with shadows that aren’t out anymore and you have no idea where to begin.

  18. we always want to look good even if we’re jus packing or doin whatever inside our house. :P i love this look a lot! i wish i could do my make up like yours..

  19. Aldene

    Absolutely stunning…just found you today…MAC should be paying you to be their spokesmodel! I’m now a MAC fan. Love your clear photos and step by step how-to’s. I’ve now bookedmarked your site. Thanks, Christine!

    While I saw stuff about people moving I thought I’d chime in. I have been packing up our house the last few weeks and had make up on. If I had somewhere to go (most likely work) I had make up on anyways then came home and got all gross and sweaty packing and cleaning and possibly even did my workout too. It’s not always pretty to see your make up at the end of a day like that. LOL

    On the better side of this post LOL… I took this green and gold look that you posted above from you and loved it. I also found one where you did cranberry, a gold of some sort (I don’t remember which shade) and I think sumptuous olive and since I don’t have cranberry I did this combo:
    Star violet- outer
    goldmine-center of lid
    sumptuous olive, inner lide
    crease- Creme de Miel
    brow- soft brown matte

    I tend to use your site for inspiration. I sometimes have all the colors you use and can re create the look exactly but when I don’t have all the colors I use what I do have and come up with something similar to a look you did. :) I have your site bookmarkd as well and tend to go through it either in the morning when I’m wanting a make up idea or at night when I just want to read sites and stuff and mess round on facbook LOL.

    • I hope you’ve managed to make your move, Bettina!

      Thanks so much :) It means so much to me that you use this site for inspiration. I really am SO flattered!
