Macro makeup shots are not kind! I swear, I have my nose to the mirror, and the liner looks IMMACULATE! it’s totally even, straight, not a jagged bit in sight… but then when I’m in Photoshop to crop the photos, what do I see? Liner that’s kind of uneven! GRR.  Tried going for a more dramatic and noticeable crease today! :)  Overall, I liked the subtly of the lid color with the bolder crease and lash line colors!

It’s almost Friday!  I hope you have some fun Friday/weekend plans coming up!  My grandma is coming into town on Saturday, but then I’ll be spending my Sunday researching and writing an appellate brief for summer school (so fun! totally!).  What’s on your agenda for the weekend? (Can you tell that I really want it to be here already?)

I used Soft Ochre paint pot on lid, Nylon eyeshadow on inner lid, Juxt eyeshadow on middle of lid, A Bluer Blue eyeshadow (LE) in crease and outer lid, Juxt eyeshadow above crease, Femme-fi eyeshadow (LE) on brow bone, Aqualine liquidlast liner on upper lash line, A Bluer Blue eyeshadow (LE) over Aqualine liquidlast liner, Feline kohl power (LE) on lower lash line, Plushlash mascara on lashes. I had Foolish Me blush with Dior SkinShimmer in Amber Diamond on cheeks to highlight. I wore Strawbaby lipstick (LE) with Moonbathe 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!

A Bluer Blue = Freshwater + Shimmermoss (also a dupe for Big T); Femme-fi = Shroom; Feline = Graphblack; Strawbaby = Skew; Moonbathe = Nymphette


(Somehow, my liner smudged up, but no worries, I so cleaned it up!)

    LOVE THE LOOK! It’s so nice and fresh and really make your eyes pop. I’ve always been partial to green/yellow eyeshadow for brown eyes.

    I’m wondering if you could help me with this question. How long does your lower waterline color stay on? Is there any trick to make it more permanent? Mine usually only stays on about 2-3 hours and then it gets splotchy (color fades off or becomes attached to upper waterline). [I’ve tried Chanel’s kohl pencil, dipping that pencil in blacktrack fluidline, applying blacktrack fluidline with a brush, waterproof eyeliner pencil (one of the MACs, forget which).] Any advice would be greatly appreciated. TIA!

    • Thanks, Jesse!

      Mine stays on for 4+ hours, but my waterline doesn’t tend to water very much, either. I know the more your waterline waters or is particular sensitive, the less likely it’ll stay. Nothing is really meant to stay there, y’know? Have you tried UD’s 24/7 liners?

      • jesse

        No, I haven’t, but I have heard some good things about it. I’ll try that next. Thanks!

  12. So beautiful, Christine! And rather strange… I had a weird dream that I found a tube of Moonbathe l/g just lying in the corner of this weird room and I took it, lol.

  13. Lilly

    The green and teal look great on your skin color. This look is pretty cool-and it really makes your eyes pop!

    love it! actually this weekend (tomorrow specifically) a sephora is opening near me and i’m hitting it hard! they already sent me a coupon for a free makeup bag if i come in opening day. id love to know if you have any favorite products from sephora?

    • Thank you, Sara!

      Oohh, have so much fun!! Check out any lines that you don’t have counters for… I don’t have any particular ones that I can think of, to be honest, it’s just so many brands carried in one location, lol.

  18. Amanda

    Ohhh, I LOVE this look. I tend to shy away from teal and turquoise and other bright green-blues because I’m deathly afraid of looking like Mimi from the Drew Carey Show or — worse yet — simply insane. But this — this I think is just perfect!

  19. I like your shirt! This look is so pretty!

  20. Cristina

    Gorgeous! I especially love the eyeliner and lipcolor combo :)

  21. Thalia
