Happy weekend everyone!! :) I’m off on winter break, so I’ve been in weekend mode perpetually since the last final finished–which is not really a good thing, LOL. I’ve realized that if I don’t do my makeup after I shower in the morning, then it’s pretty unlikely I’ll do it later. I thought I’d try a look using some Chill products yesterday, so here’s that look! :)

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Soft Ochre paint pot (neutral base), Wintersky eyeshadow (dark pink), Arctic Grey eyeshadow (light silver-gray), Apres-ski eyeshadow (dark matte gray-brown), Femme-fi eyeshadow (light highlighter), Feline kohl power (black), Plushlash mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: True Romantic blush (raspberry), Dior Rose Diamond Skin Shimmer (pink shimmer)
  • Lips: Hot Gossip lipstick (medium pink), Icescape lipglass (irridescent pink)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: Wintersky = Sweet Lust; Arctic Grey = Electra; Apres-ski = Copperplate; Femme-fi = Shroom; Feline = Graphblack; True Romantic = Gentle; Icescape = Flusterose

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 lid, apply Wintersky eyeshadow using the 239. Apply Arctic Grey eyeshadow to the middle of the lid. Darken the outer lid using Apres-ski and drag into crease using the 239. Sweep Femme-fi eyeshadow underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with Feline kohl power on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with True Romantic blush layered with Rose Diamond using the 129. Apply Hot Gossip lipstick to lips, and then top with Icescape lipglass for color and shine.

I really liked how this looked in person! It seems a bit TOO much in the close-ups, though. I can’t tell you how pretty Elite looks over Pink Pearl nor how lovely that golden-warm brown color looks with pinks and purple.

Happy weekend, all!

I used Pink Pearl pigment on lid, Elite eyeshadow (LE) on inner lid (in place of Warming Trend), Stars ‘N Rockets eyeshadow on middle of lid, Climate Blue eyeshadow (LE) on outer lid and crease, Femme-fi eyeshadow (LE) on brow, Elite eyeshadow (LE) on lower lash line, Graphblack technakohl on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I had True Romantic blush (LE) with Lightly Lilac beauty powder on cheeks. I wore Utter Pervette lipstick (LE) with Crystal Rose lipglass (LE) on my lips.

** These are recommendations for dupes based on permanent colors available — may not necessarily be identical; they are the closest I can think of!

Elite = Woodwinked; Climate Blue = Deep Truth + Parfait Amour; Femme-fi = Shroom; True Romantic = Breath of Plum; Utter Pervette = Pervette; Crystal Rose = Stars ‘N Rockets + gloss
