Just one photo for you! Stark Naked blush with Lucent sheersheen powder over it on the cheeks :) LOL, I think I have some gloss on my teeth :(

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: Stark Naked blush (raspberry), Lucent sheershen powder (pale shimmery pink)
  • Lips: Strawberry Blonde lipstick (pink-coral), Sugar Trance (sheer white-pink), Love Alert dazzleglass (glittery fuschia-red)
  • 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 Stark Naked using the 129, highlight cheekbones with Lucent. Apply Strawberry Blonde lipstick to lips, and then top with Sugar Trance lipglass and Love Alert dazzleglass for color and shine.

    Hi Christine

    i have been reeading your blog for about a year now but I don’t think I have commented ever. I HAVE to comment this time however becuase in all of these blush shots you look absolutly BEAUTIFUL!! You have me wanting every single thing you have used, the blushes, skinfinishes, the Chanel quad, the lip colours… I love this whole combination and you pull of the black liner so well. The lip colour is beautiful and every single one of the cheek colours make you glow (you probably do so naturally anyway though however!). I have come back like 5 times today to just look at all of these wonderful products on you. I love you blog, it is so helpful for me and you are very beautiful and inspiring! Thank you :-)

    • Hey Rebecca! Thanks for taking the time to comment today :) I’m so happy you enjoy the blog and love this look! I am really lovin’ the Chanel quad – it’s perfect for natural looks.

    This looks perfect as well!!

  3. This is gorgeous! I really really want Stark Naked now, I’m a sucker for anything with the words pink and gold in it :)

    Just wondering, would you ever pair a blush like Stark Naked with the lip combo you used with Enough Said? I usually go for the “Enough Said” style lips, rather than the louder ones you did with Stark Naked, but I was wondering whether you did that because you loved it more (totally acceptable!) or whether the colours wouldn’t have worked out.

  4. Pretty! I love the eyes!

    I never thought about using these two colour together…. they’re fabulous together! And you look fantastic!

    You’re gorgeous! I mean this with affection (and I’m telling you because I’d want to know), but I think you’re wearing the wrong foundation. It’s well blended, but it seems cooler than your face is, or at least in photos, your skin seems to have a warmer undertone than your makeup does. It may look different in natural light, but you may want to update your foundation. I just figured that since I’d want to know, I’d share it.

    I love your blog and you create fabulous eye looks that I couldn’t even dream of pulling off myself. Whenever I put on eyeshadow, I end up looking like a clown :(

    • Thanks for the advice! I kept trying to look for what you were seeing, but I couldn’t see it :( I actually thought it matched well, LOL! My foundation is actually warm-toned and I’m only slightly warm (though def not cool), hmmm. I use Studio Fix Fluid NC30 in these photos.
