Soft Neutral Eyes with NYC

I actually wore this look a few days ago, but then with Chanel’s summer collection debuting, I decided to hold off on it.   Reviews to come for several products featured in this look :)

You will need the following…

  • Eyes:  NYC Union Square Eyeshadow Palette (eyeshadow base, beige, dark purple, soft brown), Urban Decay Underground 24/7 Liner (brown), Bare Escentuals Buxom Lash Mascara (black)
  • Face: Ellis Faas SkinVeil (S104), Guerlain Les Violettes Mineral Powder (03)
  • Cheeks: Benefit Cha Cha Tint (sheer orange-coral)
  • Lips: MAC Viva Glam VI Lipstick (plum brown)
  • Brushes: 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 222 (fluffy crease brush), 219 (pencil brush), 188 (small, circular stippling brush)

For eyes, start by applying NYC’s eyeshadow base as your eyeshadow base all over the eye with the 249.  Apply the beige eyeshadow to the entire lid with the 239.  Then lightly tap the soft brown eyeshadow into the crease with the 222.  Next, define the crease with the dark purple eyeshadow using the 219.  Highlight the brow bone with the beige eyeshadow with the 217.  Apply Underground liner on the lower lash line.  Finish by sweeping lashes with Buxom Lash mascara.

For cheeks, apply Cha Cha on the apples of the cheeks and sweep towards the temple with the 188.

For lips, apply Viva Glam VI lipstick for a complementing lip.

    This is a nice soft neutral look. It’s very simple with a small pop of color. I hope you will be doing a review on palette you used.

  8. Could you do a silver, and gunmetal eye look? With maybe a deep purple eyeliner? And more dramatic mascara? Thank youu!

    Ah, I can’t wait to hear about ChaCha Tint! HSN is supposed to have a one day only pre-release next month!

  10. Christine, it’s a lovely combination! I would also pair it with a plummy lipstick.
    I just realized that I have never seen you wearing false eyelashes in pictures, why is that so?

    Will you be reviewing Cha Cha Tint?

  12. Branka

    wow, your skin looks amazing!so clear and radiant :)
    is that because of the ellis faas skin veil or some new skincare routine or something else?

    Hi, Christine! This is the perfect look to wear to work. The purple looks so pretty with the soft brown. Yet, I really like the Cha Cha Tint on you! It looks natural and radiant. Thanks.

  14. Michelle

    Very pretty and fresh look!

  15. Ooh, you’re trying out Ellis Faas? I love the story behind that brand; it’s too expensive for me to try out, though, unfortunately. :c
    I love the crease colors!

  16. I would love to see the reviews on Union Square. I own a few NYC eyeshadows are they are decent, but they are kind of hit or miss.

  17. CeeBee

  18. It makes you look so radiant! ^__^
