  1. Thank you for that tutorial Christine. I really enjoyed it! :)

  2. I love this tutorial! I was hoping you’d do one for this look! But I also love how chatty you are in this one!! Don’t poke yourself in the eye!! (Yes, I can sympathize!)

    Quick question: Do cream brozer/blushes stay on better than powders in heat?

    • Thanks, Mariah! :)

      Ow, ow, my poor eyes, many a makeup applicator has gone where they should most definitely not go… LOL.

      I find that layering a cream and powder seems to prolong the wear overall. Creams alone can sometimes wear longer, but it definitely varies by the product type – not all creams work so well, some just slide around!

    Hey Christine,
    Great tutorial with great tips.
    You had me giggle a bit when you made the comment about it being very ‘unpleasant’ to stab yourself in the eye. And now I’m LOL-ing.
    *hahahahahhahah*

    Love it!

  6. nicci

    lol! what perfect timing Christine, I tried on cream blush last night for the first time at MAC. I think she used the same brush you’re using too. Thanks for the video!

    Hi Christine, do you think we can use the marine life highlight as eyeshadow? I love your website! see it everyday!! Keep up the good work!!

  8. Lena

    You look like Hayley Atwell (from that movie The Duchess)!

    “It is not pleasant if you stab yourself in the eye… I’m sure you can sympathise.”
    “I don’t need any extra reason for acne to come visit me.”
    “WOW, in yo face!”
    “This is my MAC TTB look, using as much TTB products as I could physically fit onto my face all at once.”

    I love your videos! You are so entertaining (not an insult or anything, you’re just so damn sweet!) :) Please do more!!! <3
    Oh, and the blush tip is really helpful, thanks :)

    • LOL! If I am entertaining, then I have done something right :)

      Thank you, Roxanne!

      Haha, that tip wasn’t even planned, but then it was like OH MY GOD I LOOK ORANGE! Take 2? NO, TIP TIME!

    Hi Christine, I really appreciate your effort and time put into this detailed, wonderful, understandable tutorial. I’ve seen many make up tutorials but none are clear and accessible like yours! (i hate people who mumbles…) Keep it up !! :D

  11. I want the cream bronzer

  12. Susan

    Thanks. You did a great job on this tutorial. I enjoyed it very much

  13. Heli

    Love the look and the tutorial is great! Thanks, Christine!

    I shamelessly copied the eye makeup today but I used Evening Aura instead of Sand&Sun and a turquoise kohl by Gosh instead of Float on By. The look’s perfect for a hot summer day and I got quite a few compliments too :)

  14. great tutorial! so do you think these creme bronzers would be ok for oily skin? or should I just stay away? lol

  15. Aisha

    Hey Christine
    thanks for the tutorial, I noticed that you used a 187 (if I am remembering correctly) for the cream bronzer, do you think it is better than 131 that will come out with this collection for the application of cream products? actually I need your recommendation, which brush you think is the best for applying cream color base to my cheeks?
    thank you so much:)

  16. ellie

    Thanks Christine. Love your tutorial!

  17. Stefh

    Can I use mac cream colour base instead of the shiseido one?

  18. durellsgrl

    great tutorial! firecracker and sweet and punchy look awesome together!

  19. aida

    I wasn´t going to but any lipglasses from this collection as I have too many but I saw the video and I bought Flurry of Fun and now I am so happy with it, using it today and loving it, so thanks
