What we're Wearing

What We’re Wearing, Vol. 048

I used NARS Smudgeproof as my eyeshadow base, and then I wore Inglot #353 on the lid and brow bone with Inglot #363 in the crease.  I used Bobbi Brown Chocolate on lower lash line.  I wore Tarte Amused on cheeks and NARS Piree on lips.

    I ain’t wearing nothin’ but tear-stained cheeks. Lying here in agonizing pain on Oxycontin trying to get relief. Your blog brings a much needed distraction from the pain. You look gorgeous.

    • Oh no!! I hope you feel better soon, Melissa!

    • oh hun i am the same! what happened? I’m praying for u

      • divinem (Melissa)

        Ongoing, unresolvable GI issues (pancreatic failure and small intestine probs). Every meal is torture.

        Sleep and Temptalia are my only escape. (LOL to the latter but it is completely true!)

        Hope you heal quickly, Danny and thank you, Christine. :)

        • Joan

          Hope you’re feeling better today Melissa. Your ailment sounds serious. Sometimes small measures may provide a little comfort along w/your meds like a warm heating pad to your belly & peppermint tea. Palliative but perhaps
          a bit of ease for you. I wish you the best!

  2. Martine

    MAC Blanc Type on the lid with Omega in the crease. Black (MUFE Aqua Black) or red (MUFE Aqua Cream in N°8) liner. On the lips Chanel Rouge Coco in Gabrielle as a stain with chapstick on top.

  3. Yoyo

    You look really naturally pretty here Christine!

  4. I’m wearing Altered Ego Lord Gold on the inner 2/3 of my lid, with Lives on the outer v. MAC Dark Diversion fluidline on the upper lashline. :)

  5. Loving what I am wearing at this moment……

    Face: nothing except a few swipes of Guerlain Meteorites

    Cheeks: Anna Sui Face Color Accent 350

    Lips: Stila Lip Glaze Pencil in Fruit Punch

    Eyes: line upper lash line with Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in place pencil in Black Plum;
    Line upper and lower waterline with Estee Lauder Artist eye pencil in soft smudge black.
    Apply a grey liquid base on the lids, and dab on some summery pale pink loose shadow on top- both from Shu Uemura’s 2010 Spring collection.

  6. I wore Sumptuous Olive on the inner half of my lids, Urban Decay Smog on the outer half, Darkhorse in the outer v. Urban Decay Stash on my lower lash line, smudged out with a bit of Darkhorse. I used the lightest shade of NYX Rock and Roll to highlight my inner corners, and Bobbi Brown Bone to highlight my brow bones. I was looking for a subtle way of wearing something that is not entirely neutral, and I’m happy how it turned out!

    For some photos please see my blog post:

    Bobbi Brown Chocolate looks SO good on you! Will you be reviewing Tarte Amused soon (these blushes get seriously addictive)?

  7. Well, this look wasn’t from *this* week (last week-ish, respectively), but it’s a color pairing that I REALLY dig. Primary blue and mint green! Take a looksee here if you like ( This week I did do a super fun eye-look with drawn on leopard spots! Never done that before and I think I totally nailed it. The rest of the look was purple and gold. I used an e.l.f palette (the quads that are $1) for both looks. Good times! Hopefully, I’ll get the leopard look up soon! 😀

  8. You look so gorgeous!

    Kindness is the best accessory,

  9. I haven’t worn much makeup this week because I keep randomly breaking out, but yesterday I put together a gold, bronze, and black smokey eye using Claire’s Gold Rush palette to help me rep the Steelers in the play offs :)

    • Mel

      I’m New York Jets all the way, but I’d love to see the Steelers rep the AFC in the Superbowl, since we can’t be there:D

  10. Nicole

    My favorite look this week included: MUFE HD Foudantion and Smokey Lash Mascara, Rosewood eyeshadow & English Rose Lipstick (both Burberry) and Nars Luster blush. It’s a simple and natural look, just perfect for a day in the office.

Then urban decay liquid liner in ecstasy (royal purple) winged-out and black Revlon mascara. MAC Blush of Youth on cheeks and Emancipation lipgloss.

    My favorite look this week was pretty simple. On my eyes I used my NYX eyeshadow base in Skin Tone. Wore a pale gold shimmer shadow on the lids from the 88 Ultra Shimmer Palette from coastal scents, in the crease was a medium brown from the 88 Warm Palette also from Coastal scents. I used Maybelline Line stylist in Espresso, curled my lashes and used Maybelline Volume Express Colossal washable mascara. On my cheeks I contoured with Rimmel bronzer had Neutrogena highlight blush in Pure.

    Lol seems like a lot but it really looked like I wasn’t wearing much at all! :]

    The lipgloss you’re wearing is absolutely lovely. Makes your lips look so juicy with that natural tone!!. It looks so pretty on you ^^. Wish I could buy NARS here, I’d grab that one in a whim ^^

    My fave look has been the perfect, porcelain white skin with very subtle pink cheeks and a wonderful red on my lips with a gorgeous, ultra-voluminous mascara. I’ve been using Dior’s Rouge Dior 999 and Dior Blacout mascara for this with Smashbox O-Glow for that lovely flush on my cheeks ^^

  19. Rachel

  27. Kristabelle

    My favorite was a ‘mermaid eyes’ look I did today for work, loosely inspired by Leesha/xsparkage. A few people had that horrified look they get when someone wears anything not neutral or natural, but I got a ton of compliments!
    Love using UD for bright looks because the shimmer makes it more wearable/softer.
    Turquoise (UD Narcotic and Deep End) on the outer and inner thirds of the lids, then a dab of shimmery elf green in the middle of the lid (I used one from Lime Crime that I bought way before I knew better). Then a few purples blended out in the crease (UD Omen, Flash, Half Truth, Sugarpill Poison Plum) with a matte white highlight (Sugarpill Tako). Black liner and purple under the lower lashes. Nude lips and face.

  28. Face:
    Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua B30
    NARS Blush “Zen”

    MUFE Aqua Cream #13 (all over as a base)
    Bobbi Brown Eyeshadow “Bone” (highlight)
    NARS Duo Eyeshadow “Isolde” (lid)
    NARS Eyeshadow “Mekong” (outer corner)
    MAC Fluidline “Blitz & Glitz) (eyeliner)

    Haven’t decided but most likely…NARS Lipstick “Roman Holiday” or Gosh Soft n Shine Lipstick “Perfectly Plum”

    I’m having dinner with my cousin and his wife’s new house. :)

  29. katherine

    Favorite eye this week: From the summer Bronze godess palette: the copper on lid, green in crease, lined with cyber eyes green on waterline and top eyelid. (made liner with damp brush).

    Lip: EL crystal baby topped with Nars Moon fleet (was on an EL kick this week :D)

  31. cris

    Beautiful as always, Christine! Are there any MAC dupes for the Inglot eyeshadows you used?

  32. Luciana

    You look very pretty and fresh. What face products you used??

  33. Veronica

    You look so fresh-faced and pretty! The dark brown liner really brings out your eyes.

    My favorite look was Tuesday’s –

    Face: Maybelline FIT Foudnation in 115, Maybelline Fit Blush in rose

    Eyes: Urban Decay Virgin on the lid, UD Sin blended with Gunmetal in the crease, UD Gunmetal in the outer corner, UD Polyester Bride in the inner corner, and theBalm’s Matt Smith on the brow. Estee Lauder’s Electric Teal Kajal eyeliner in the waterline. Maybelline Stiletto on the lashes.

    Lips: Covergirl Lip Perfection in Darling, Revlon Colorburst Lipgloss in Peony

  34. Jessica

    Beautiful look! Nude done right. The “chocolate” shadow liner lower lashline really makes your irises pop.

  35. brenda

    The only makeup I wore this week turned out well. It was:

    eyes – TF shadow insurance, MAC Fresh Ice e/s on lid & inner corners with a 239 brush, Yaby e/s in Smoked Maple (es330) blended in entire crease up to orbital bone with a 275 and Yaby The Mauve(es172) placed right in crease about 1/2 way in with a 219, also blended just on outer eyelid corner and under lash line, about 1/2 way.

    I used Urban Decay secret service with an angled eyeliner on upper lash line and Rimmel mascara in the pink tube, can’t recall what its name is.

    cheeks: Joe Fresh cream blush in apricot

    lips: Dior addict in Rose Deshabille

  36. Kayvid

    It would be a great idea if you start including your foundation and concealor in “What we are wearing?” as well.

  37. Mariella

    For a quick look the past few days, I’ve been wearing Stila Cloud on my lids with UD Mushroom (in the Mariposa palette I got from my daughter) in the crease and black or brown liner (Gosh Metallic Brass has become my “go to” brown liner)smudged into upper and lower lashes. My son got me MAC Dollymix for Xmas and I’ve worn that every day. Sweetie or Plumful on my lips.

  38. The cool colors from the Dior Garden Pastels quint, Chanel Horizon blush and Guerlain Violene serum gloss.

  39. Lark

    Your favorite Christine, ;-D MAC Meatal X eyes; Cyber (shiny silver) in the inner third or so of my eye and Venetion Tarnish on the rest. Some Blacktrack Fluidline or Zero pencil, Opulash, Revlon Colorstay face, Nars Sin or MAC Vintage Grape cheeks, and silver lipstick over pink fully penciled mouth. (I have several silvers, figuring out what to do with (them, over pencil has been good!)

    The Metal X is amazing! Totally new formula, very much about a modern aesthetic. The Cyber clumps and moves in really interesting ways, not creases but streaks and dots. The Tarnish does crease, but a pat of the finger tip about as hard as touching your iPhone disperses it again. Think five hours, second trip to the ladies room. This is the coolest eye make up EVER! Totally Jetsons.

  40. Amy

    You look so pretty and cute! ^-^
    Eyes: Layer of Inglot white cream liner opaque on lid and then blended up and out, MAC’s Beautiful Iris crease to brow bone, MUFE #93 on the outer life and blended 3/4 in and dabbing some on the inner corner and fadinging some on the inner lower lashline with Beautiful Iris on the outer half. Then applied a lot of TT’s Sparklicity Pure in Opal, concentrating on lid and inner corner blending it out a bit.
    Face: No foundation just a bit of concealer under eyes, TT Dollskin blush in Carved Rose <33
    Lips: Jack Black lipbalm with MAC Candy Yum-Yum dabbed lightly over it to create a flush of healthy translucent pink color 😀

  41. Reese

    I’m loving this look on you, it might actuallt be my favourite! Very natural but soooo pretty! Love it! :) it’d almost be perfect for your wedding day, just add some good lashes and voila! Gotta have lashes on your wedding, they show up beautiful in pictures. I had extensions put on, but looking back I probably would’ve used lashes for a WAY cheaper cost and so much less up-keep.

    • Reese

      Oh and I have no look this week because I’ve been sick! Usually I still put on a bit of makeup cause it “makes me feel better” lol but this cold is really kicking my ass! …maybe tomorrow…

  42. My favourite look this week was one I did trying out some new products from Rouge Bunny Rouge- part of my resolution to try new brands. It’s a more colourful eye than I usually do, but I liked how it turned out. You can see it here:
