Usually a smokey eye, in blues, browns or purples. A light, barely flushed looking cheek with some bronzer and a pretty highlight color. Also, blacktrack fluidline on the upper lash line, black liner on the lower waterline, and plenty of mascara on curled lashes! And a pretty nude lip, or lipstick and lipgloss to match whatever I’m wearing. I like to look sexy for special occasions, but not too over the top !

I am with Ashley and Lydia
Bold eyes.Usually for me a smokey eye with a light lip.
My smokey eyes will either be a brownand black or a silver and black look.
and of course MAJOR lashes! : )

depends on the event and my mood — for girls night out, i go all out and do whatever i feel like LOL but for things like weddings and such i usually stick to a simple eye (highlight on brow, 1 shade on lids, black liner and mascara) and a more colorful lip.

Hmm… I guess I don’t have one look. Probably Sunrise Eyes or Watermelon Eyes…although now that I can finally do smoky, that is definitely entering the repertoire.

Something classy and tasteful, yet bold and glam!
I can go for a smokey eye and a nude lip,
bright lipcolor anda simple neutral eye,
or even a natural look with super sexy cheeks and lashes!

Face – I do my best to get a flawless complexion – I use a primer, concealer, full coverage foundation and blot powder for this.

Eyes – Right now I like wearing MAC Goldmine, Paradisco and Twinks with Rich Ground to line the eyes, Clinique Truly Black on the waterline and Full n Soft Mascara

Cheeks – highligher (Smashbox Soft Lights in Lens) and blush (Sunbasque/Melba)

Lips – Clarins Passion 350 over MAC Spice pencil

Hey Cristine,



My special occasion look isn’t that different then my average day look – just pumped up and bolder. I always make sure my skin looks the best, break out the concealer and go at it. I like to use a blush and highlighter too. Tons of lashes, and lately I’ve been doing a decent winged liner. Also brow gel is a wonderful thing! I tend to for a glossy neutral on the lips, but I just got Russian Red, so I think I’ll have to use that next time!
