Quick Look: Soft Neutrals & Chanel Lips

I meant to post this awhile ago, but I forgot — this was an ultra quick look I did in the beginning of February! On top of MAC Soft Ochre paint pot (as a base), I wore MAC Ricepaper eyeshadow all over the lid (and brow bone) with MAC Woodwinked eyeshadow in the crease–and that’s about it!  Oh! and Baked by Urban Decay for liner, I believe… (This is why you’re not supposed to *forget* to post stuff, because then you just forget what’s in it!) Benefit Sugarbomb for blush with Chanel Mandarin Rouge Allure Laque.

What’s YOUR quick look?

    I have to admit you influenced my quick eye look – it would consist of a neutral matte shadow on top of groundwork p/p or benefit’s birthday suit creaseless shadow – soba or coquette in the crease – UD’s bourbon on the lower lash line only – SMUDGED and LOTS of black mascara. Then followed with my foundation topped with MAC MSF – med/dark…

    I would probably pick a brighter lipstick/gloss and blush…i guess it would depend on my mood. But it’s nice to keep the eyes pretty neutral and light!

    Is that Urban Decay Baked liner? Looks like a great go-to look with some pop. Mandarin is the RAL that I own – I’m glad to see it on your full face and not just a lip swatch :) I have all these products except Sugarbomb, so I’ll have to keep this face in my back pocket for oversleep days!

  3. Very nice neutral eyes!

    And I have to agree with you about not forgetting to post, esp EOTD/FOTD. I tend to post much later, and I would be cracking my brain on which shades I had actually used, etc. (Sometimes, I do write them down, but, well, sometimes. ) 😉

    BEAUTIFUL! What brushes did you use to apply the shadows?

  5. LNU

    I’m really loving all the Chanel rouge allures and the Guerlain lips you post!

  6. Pam

    love this look! You look good in red lipstick :)

  7. Julia:D

    What a gorgeous look! Mandarin is a pretty lip colour!

    what foundation or tinted moisturizer are you using in this look?

  9. Ashley

    That looks really pretty! Are you wearing any foundation? If not, then your skin looks really fantastic in these pictures, I’m quite jealous!

    My “quick look” is basically… wearing nothing lol. But if I will be out for longer than an hour or so, I’ll usually just put some mascara on, maybe some eyeliner and gloss.

    I love these quick looks, you should do more. XOXO

    Very pretty. I’ve been meaning to buy Mandarin for a long time now. I will jump to it.
    My quick look is even more basic than yours, Christine. I dab on some MUFE full cover concealer, fill in my brows, add some MUFE aqua black liner, Chanel Inimitable mascara, and then a lipstick or gloss. The shade depends on my mood.

    Very Pretty…love the eyeshadow! You really can pull off any lipstick! =) I definitely think a neutral eye with bold lips is the best way to wear a brighter lipstick.

  13. Steph

    great look as always. WHen you apply the rouge allure laques, do you used the applicator or a different brush? Thanks!

  14. Luisafer

    quick look: bobbi brown shimmering nudes palette and mac superdupernatural blush.
    And i see you do always use benefit’s sugarbomb! It looks really good on you :)

    You look lovely, Christine. It’s interesting, Mandarin looks SO different on you than it does on me. On me, it looks really red. I think this might actually be my favourite Rouge Allure Laque on you, even more than Dragon. You look wonderful with orange reds; when you did the Scarlet Season, you looked fab in nearly all the orange reds. I’ve actually gone to my makeup drawer while typing this comment and slicked on Mandarin, haha!

  17. Silvia

    Thats an awesome lipcolor on you an nc 20 hopefully it will look as good on me as it does on you.

  18. Elysia

    I love that red! it’s a nice change from the super bold reds i usually like

  19. Chester

    My quick look is Bare Study paint pot as base, Chamomile all over the lid and as a highlight on the brow bone, Modelette and Mulled Cider (or Modelette and Cranberry, depending on my mood) in the crease, Feline on the upper waterline, then Blushbaby as blush and Benefit Good-to-go on the lips.

  20. Nicole

    you look so pretty here, love the lip color on you too

  21. Shah'ada

  22. Alexandra

  24. Resha

    love this! that lipstick ties it all together. its so pretty.

  25. Faiza

    Love the lips!

  26. I was wondering what you used on your brows? They look almost “wet” looking? I just really like the look. Thanks!

  27. ha ha – this is almost exactly the same as my quick look – ricepaper with texture in the crease, lucky, bourbon, or corrupt UD liner on the lower lashes, and brighter lipstick and either sugarbomb, posie tint, or orgasm blush.
