I did this look for yesterday’s outing with the relatives :) Pretty simple, but I liked it nonetheless!

How’s everyone doing? What’s on your to-do list today?

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Soft Ochre paint pot (creamy neutral base), Dreammaker eyeshadow (white-gold), Go! eyeshadow (dark shimmery brown), Ricepaper eyeshadow (soft neutral highlight), Rich Ground fluidline (coppery brown gel liner), Blacktrack fluidline (black gel liner), Plushlash mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Suncentered colour forms powder (soft peachy)
  • Lips: Mari-sheeno lipstick (coral-pink), Cle de Peau #2 Gloss (pink duochrome)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: Dreammaker = Nylon; Go = Tempting; Suncentered = Cantaloupe; Mari-sheeno = Skew

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Soft Ochre paint pot all over the lid as the base with the 249. All over the lid, apply Dreammaker using the 239. Apply Go! eyeshadow to the outer edge of the lid, overlaying it with Dreammaker. Darken crease with Go! eyeshadow by dragging it into the crease area with the 239. Sweep Ricepaper underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with Blacktrack fluidline on lower lash line, Rich Ground fluidline on upper lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Suncentered using the 129. Apply Mari-sheeno lipstick to lips, and then top with Cle de Peau #2 Gloss for color and shine.

  1. oooo… is that the first time you’ve posted a photo with a smile on a looking-down shot??? =D gorgeous!! :)

  2. Nosh

    I love it! You look soooo pretty! I think this is one of favorite looks that I’ve seen you do recently. Then again, I really like neutrals cuz I have to stick to neutrals for work and I’m always looking for new ideas =) I am gonna try this out!

  3. Tanya from Oz

    I love this look! You are soooo pretty christine (even more than normal!!) :D….you are actually GLOWING! Has anything really good happened recently, or is the the fantastic magic-makeup…?!?!!

  4. DeDe

    This is absolutely fab! You look so natural even with the make up…you inspire me Christine…I mean that!

  5. Ariele

    Ohh, I really love Rich Ground f/l with this! And your hair looks so cute with a headband ;)

  6. Melinda

    I love the liner you used – a softer alternative that still makes your eyes pop.

    And I also love the happy photo shots – a smile upgrades all makeup creations!

  7. you always make lipstick look good!

  8. The rich ground fluidline looks excellent on you! I know how you very seldom use eyeliner on your upper lash line but having a light colored one really makes the eyes pop. very sweet!

  9. Erin/slipnslide

    I love Rich Ground! I love it more on you than me. Maybe I should try tightlining with blacktrack on the lashline.

  10. Lingping

    This is a really pretty look! I don’t usually go for neutrals, but this looks so good can’t wait to try it. Didn’t think I wanted/needed any fluidlines, but now I definitely do :)

  11. Avatar of Celia Nartian

    Another lovely look!

    I do wish they had a permanent fluidline just a tick darker than Rich Ground though.

  12. Nicky

    The lips are AMAZING! I think that the Cle de Peau gloss was well worth it–that shimmer is so pretty.

    • Thanks, Nicky! I love it a lot, it was definitely a good color to purchase :) Probably won’t repurchase (will opt for NARS Orgasm, most likely), but good for now!

  13. another great neutral look for me to try at work! you should DEF do more looks with Marisheeno! i LOVE it, but i’m never sure what to pair it with!

    today…….work and work and work and go home and sleep. that’s about it. debating whether or not i want to shell out $150 for a haircut at Bumble & Bumble……….shall I??

    • OMG, Mari-sheeno goes with everything, I swear! I use it with blues, greens, neutrals… LOVE IT.

      Oh, wow $150! Well… if they can give you that hairstyle that suits you so well… then yes!

  14. pia

    I totally agree with prev comments. You look more beautiful, it’s the different poses or different makeup or both or something else altogether. Please share :)

  15. Márcia

    Rich Ground is one of my favourite fluidlines and it’s so pretty on you Christine!

  16. Nell

    Very pretty, you look so sweet in these photos. I also like the fluidline.
    You know what could be a possible dupe for your 50$ gloss? Chanel Glosimer in Twinkle (No.11), it is not that expensive and I think real similar!

  17. lala

    your perfection christine!!!!!!!!!!!! <333

  18. Jade

    Drooling over the Rich Ground….. I’m a Fluid Line addict!

  19. Monica

    You look so beautiful Christine.. is a very soft and innocent look.. very natural too. Love it! Your hair looks so pretty like this..

  20. Ashlee

    Very pretty. I love the liner & lips!

  21. Jan

    I think you look fab in these picture Christine! You always do, but somehow I feel these collection gives off an indescribable glow. Did you change your foundation? Anyway, love the lips as well! I can’t wait for Starflash! Did you get all the e/s?

  22. Amanda23

    Oooo….. Love that lip combo, its perfect with this look.

    I noticed you’ve been in a neutral mood lately, very nice!

  23. Kirsten

    i purchased dream maker, smoke and diamonds, go, and grand entrance today. i absolutely LOVE the texture and how pigmented they are…much much better than the mineralize eyeshadows. im debating going back for mink and sable and bold and brazen…are they worth it?

  24. Theresa

    a very very nice and gentle look indeed!

    am so loving the lip colour and the brown liner on the upper lash line!!

  25. Cristina

    This is a great version of neutrals…they’re not boring at all! I should check out Rich Ground f/l :)

  26. gracieo

    Love it Christine…I actually think I could pull this one off. lol As for my things to do today…taking my 16 yr old for her drivers permit today. Shes a good driver, but I’m not a good passenger (with a teen with a permit behind the wheel) That goes in the Daddy dept. here. Have a great day ladies :o)

  27. Alisa

    Very cute! One of my fav looks, and I really like how you did the Rich Ground eye liner.

  28. Stacey

    This is wonderful and inspired me to use Rich Ground the same way today :D Thank you for the inspiration, Christine!

  29. Sash

    Oh, very pretty!
    I love ur lips!
    *pouts*

  30. Jamie

    Hi there! I was just wondering, whats a nice colour that would go with bold and brazen (preferably in the browns family)… I bought glamour check but I am not sure if I love it because of the red in it and it looks similar to sketch on my skintone. Please let me know :D Thank you!!!

  31. Jamie

    Actually, never mind :P lol I just tried skecth and glamaour check on my eye PROPERLY with bold and brazen and sketch is WAYYY darker. Do you think woodwinked/bronze/GO/Tempting might be a better substitute?? Which one do you prefer?? Thanks again :P

  32. Kayla

    I totally LOVE this look!
    Quick question tho – did you use the 266 brush to line both the top and bottom of your lids?
    thanks!
