Enough Said and Soft & Gentle :) I think this is one of my favorite combinations — it just looks really natural and glowy.

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Chanel Beiges de Chanel quad, Blacktrack fluidline (black), Urban Decay Honey 24/7 Liner (gold), Plushlash mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Enough Said blush (soft gold-peach), Soft & Gentle mineralize skinfinish (gilded gold)
  • Lips: Strawberry Blonde lipstick (pink-coral), Sugar Trance (sheer white-pink)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: Enough Said = Gingerly; Strawberry Blonde = Skew; Sugar Trance = Prrr

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. On the inner half of the lid, apply the lightest color from the Chanel Beiges de Chanel quad with the 239. Apply the next lightest color on the outer half of the lid with the 239 brush. Darken the crease with medium colored brown and drag using the 239. Sweep the lightest color underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with Urban Decay Honey 24/7 Liner on lower lash line and Blacktrack fluidline on upper lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Enough Said using the 129, highlight with Soft & Gentle. Apply Strawberry Blonde lipstick to lips, and then top with Sugar Trance lipglass for color and shine.

    What a gorgeous classic look, Christine. I love the update with the gold liner. You remind me of Audrey Hepburn!

  2. Beautiful, as always! Everything’s perfect — the lips are goorgeous, the blush is wonderful, and the eye look is perfect! You really can pull off thick black liner well :)

    Looks great…I guess I’m going to have to go back & get Soft & Gentle, sigh ;). Is Strawberry Blonde l/s LE?

    all the looks turned out really nice, tho this one’s my favourite! your experiment inspired me to get both ‘stark naked’ and ‘enough said’, which arrived in the post yesterday, so of course i had to wear them today….i absolutely love them!!

    Couldn’t find the Strawberry Blonde Lipstick or the Enough Said Blush anywhere on the MAC site! Do you have any duplicate shades you would recommend for either? Thanks!
