Summer Look with Dior and Urban Decay

Testing out more than a few products — new summer quint from Dior, Hourglass Film Noir mascara, Chanel Mat Lumiere, Urban Decay Gilded, and Guerlain Cherry Blossom–oh, and also Bobbi Brown’s Creamy Concealer.

You will need the following…

  • Eyes:  NARS Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Base (base), Dior Rosy Nude (534) Eyeshadow Palette (beige, pale gold, warm brown, peach), Urban Decay Bourbon 24/7 Liner (brown), Urban Decay Midnight Cowboy 24/7 Liner (champagne), Hourglass Film Noir Mascara (black)
  • Face: Chanel Mat Lumiere (3), Guerlain Les Violettes Mineral Powder (03)
  • Cheeks: Urban Decay Gilded Baked Bronzer (sunny bronze)
  • Lips: Guerlain Cherry Blossom (161) Rouge Automatique (rosy pink)
  • Brushes: 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 222 (fluffy crease brush), 184 (fan brush)

For eyes, start by applying Smudgeproof as your eyeshadow base all over the eye area with the 294.  Apply the beige eyeshadow to the inner tearduct with the 217.  Next, apply the gold eyeshadow to the lid with the 239.  Lightly blend the warm brown eyeshadow into the crease with the 222, blending outwards.  Pat the peach eyeshadow lightly above the crease and highlight the brow bone with the 217.  Apply Midnight Cowboy liner on the lower water line and Bourbon liner on the lower lash line.  Finish by sweeping lashes with Film Noir mascara.

For cheeks, apply Gilded bronzer on the apples of the cheeks and pat towards the temple with the 184.

For lips, apply Cherry Blossom lipstick for a complementing lip.

  5. Marieke

    I love the lips :) Well, I always love your lips because those colors suit me too!

  6. Celine

    I love this look, even if it’s not the most unique one, the shimmer is really pretty, very fine, it makes the eye look very elegant I think !

  7. M

    Oh Christine, you look sooooo pretty here! Absolutely darling!

  8. So polished and pretty!

  9. Polly

    Mmmm… I love sun-kissed natural look! ฺBright, healthy, and not overdone

    So pretty! Ty for sharing!

  10. Grace

    You can really see the white eyeshadow fall-out on your lashes… other than that, the look is really pretty!!

  11. Gina

    UD’s Gilded looks lovely! I’ve been eyeing it for a while, I might have to eventually grab it.

  12. Anna

    I love this Dior Rosay Nude.

    I have a problem: should I buy again Chanel Loose Powder or Guerlain Loose mineral powder (used in this post). The most important thing is mattifaying. Maybe you could do a review of this Guerlain?

  13. Adrienne

    I really like this for an everyday look. I got that mascara in a sephora lashstash and it is one of my favorites!

  14. Michelle

    That’s very pretty! One of my favorite looks I’ve seen for a while. I also like your hairstyle :)

  15. I love how natural this looks! Not too made up but super pretty. I love Midnight Cowboy on the lower waterline as well.

  16. Émilie

    Your hair is just amazing ! Loving your make-up as well ! :-)

  17. thats a great look for you, it really makes your eyes stand out. I think i need to experiment with the gold :)

  18. Jennifer Miller

    That looks beautiful on you, love it!

  19. Lizzi

    I like this look. Very toned down. I am in culinary school to be a chef. I *may* be able to get away with wearing this in the kitchen. We’ll see if Chef yells at me for it…

  20. malen

    very pretty, Christine (as always)! any MAC dupe for the DIOR e/s? budget is a bit tight lately and DIOR might break the bank… :) Thanks.

  21. Suzanne Hage

    You look beautiful with those headbands! And I love your skin

  22. LU

    I can’t even begin to tell you how stunning you look here! You are just completely glowing! Amazing!! This is my fourth fave look now. :)

  23. Love this look! Even though theres a lot of shimmer going on it still looks natural and great for everyday!

  24. Lehua

    i like this look, very natural. :)

  25. Shilpa

    the mascara looks awesome!!! waiting patiently for a review…

  26. Elaine

    okay. This is my favorite look you’ve ever done – these colours look amazing on you!!!

  27. Luna

    How come no one has said anything about this look. It’s one of the most beautiful I’ve seen on the site! Ahh, I wanna go get that palette but it’s so expensive!

  28. Jules

    Love your hair. Very pretty natural look!

  29. You look so pretty, Christine!

  30. Amanda

    This is the most beautiful makeup that I’ve seen on you and I’ve been following your blog for quite sometime. This really shows the beauty of YOU and not your makeup. Keep up the good work!

  31. cherryglass

    L-O-V-E the eye!!! This is exactly what I’m trying to achieve lately. [takes notes] The whole look is very pretty. Thank you!

  32. kiwi

    ooooh, love it!

  33. Lara

    No, I don’t like it very much. It’s too pale for me.

  34. Goya

    Beautiful and sophisticated.

  35. Jenn

    This is a nice, pretty everyday look, quite similar to what I wear to work. How do you like the Bobbi Brown concealer? I am concealer-challenged… throughout the years I’ve bought tube after tube, cheap and high-end, and I feel like not a single one has done a damn thing! I really think they make my undereye look *worse*, but Bobbi Brown is the brand I haven’t tried that seems like a ray of hope!

  36. This look is gorgeous!

  37. Emily

    I really like the combination of the liners. It’s neutral but it’s just unique enough to make me ask “Hey what liner did you use?” haha =]

  38. What sweet look! Love the lip colour!

  39. Lindsay

    Your hair looks so pretty!

  40. Is that sweater from H&M? I think I have the same one!

  41. I am sO in love with the looks- What type of camera do you use by the way?!

  42. Charlotte

    Are you going to post a review of Mat Lumiere soon? I’ve been thinking about getting it for a while now so I’d love to know what you think!

  43. Jordan

    I absolutely ADORE this look! I think it is perfect for summer!!! They no longer sell Rosy Nude…would you have any recommendations for alternative colors/brands we could use to achieve this look? Is it possible for you to dupe the 5 colors in the collection for us? I really really want to try this look!
