Summer Fun Look: Green, Coral, & Purple

How’s your Sunday treating you? I did this look late last night, as I was determined to be somewhat productive.  (Although, I did get my cheat sheet ready for my final on Monday!)  Just a fun, summery look that came out better than I thought it would!  I hope you’re enjoying your weekend :)

P.S. — For a more affordable lip look, try MAC Ravishing and Lychee Luxe.

You will need the following…

For eyes, start by applying Smudgeproof as your eyeshadow base all over the eye area with the 249. Using the 239, apply Sweet & Punchy eyeshadow on the inner two-thirds of the lid and pull upwards along the inner crease. Apply Firecracker eyeshadow on the outer third of the lid with the 239. Next, apply Psychedelic Sister eyeshadow into the crease with the 226, lightly blending onto the outer lid. Blend Grain eyeshadow with the crease shade and highlight the brow bone. Bring everything together by applying Float On By eye kohl on the lower lash line, then lightly pat Sweet & Punchy eyeshadow to soften. Finish by sweeping lashes with Plushlash mascara.

For cheeks, apply Traviata blush on the apples of the cheeks and sweep upwards towards the temple with the 116.

For lips, apply #101 lipstick first, and then layer #3 lipgloss for a complementing lip.

    Quite pretty. I just might give this look a try.

  4. I love that! THat’s really pretty on you! i need to go look up dupes for Firecracker now, since i kinda don’t have money to buy it.

    Wow that purple crease is GREAT! Do you think MAC’s Nocturnelle would work as a substitute?

      Also, this is weird I know, but your eyelid shape is very pretty. I mean, in the last picture with the eye closed I was *sure* you had thin black liner on the upper lashline, but clearly you don’t. Just something about your eyes.

      • Thanks, Daphne :) I thank my parents for giving me the best of their eyes, LOL! I also thank my grandmother for the crazy eye color (both my parents have brown eyes), but she has the same weird flecks.

    • Thanks! :) Nocturnelle would be OK – probably not quite as purple – maybe like a mix of Parfait Amour & Nocturnelle?

        I think that could work…I do have both! Trying to figure out when I should try a similar look. Maybe I’ll use a bluer liner and make this my rainbow eye for Pride!

    Christine,
    How similar are MAC’s Fresh Green Mix (mineralize eyeshadow) and To the Beach’s Sweet and Punchy?

  24. Oana

    Oh pretty pretty! I feel like you sort of combined the colors most people said they would pair with firecracker (green & purple) and I love how all 3 look together!! Nice job Christine!

  25. Rosie

    You look radiant. Sweet and punchy looks great with float on by.

  26. joanne w

    You make me wanna go out and try the get the products you used on your lips even though I think coral looks horrible on me!

  27. Amanda Craig

    i know you mention Nocturnelle and Parfait Amour….but what do you think about Trax, or the purple that came in the Lucky Tom Quad from Hello Kitty??

  28. Arianna

    love the lips! cant say the same for the eyes!

  29. Marie

    I love this look! it’s vibrant, young, and fun, but not flashy. :)
