    Was ill/am still ill, so no make up apart from tinted moisturiser so as not to look like a zombie :(

    But before that it was Benefit’s Skinny Jeans on the lid with either UD’s eggplant couloured pencil along the lashline + an eggplant/purple Topshop eyeshadow in the crease and on the lower lashline, or a UD shimmery grey pencil along the lashline + MAC’s Satin Taupe eyshadow in the crease and along the lower lashline. Highlight on the brownbone was Burberry Trench.

    On the cheeks/contour a healthy dose of MAC Tenderling, with a tiny bit of MAC Stunner on the apples of the cheeks.

    Finally, lipbalm for the lips!

    A beautiful look Christine.

    I didn’t have a favourite look this week, because I hardly wore any makeup, because I was ill.

  3. I wore this look when I went to see “Seminar” on Broadway:

  4. Marina

    That is a GORGEOUS look, Christine! I haven’t worn makeup at all this week because of allergies. :(

  5. Emma

    Patina or Sumptuous Olive over the lid, Mystery or Handwritten in crease, Blanc Type or Ricepaper as a Híghlight.
    All of these colors are new, so thats why I changed them up all week ūüėÄ

    Loving this look!!! Never thought that palette would wear so beautiful… I have to recover from a breakout that I’ve developed because of that time of the month, so just some bb cream and givenchy’s magic lip and cheek balm to keep a beautiful rosy glow on my lips and cheeks. Now that I’ve seen this palette wear so beautifully on you, I’m thinking on getting it, but I think maybe the green one would look even more spectacular ^^

  7. A really nice look with that purple under kohl on the waterline :D!

    I wore a dark red lip with the YSL Belle de Rose Lipstick and combined it with a subtle eye, with Dr.Hauschka Eyeshadows…

  8. Dominique

    Such a beautiful look !
    Today, it was ” Lady Grey ” quad from M.A.C ( it’s raining here in Bordeaux ! ) and “Thrrob ” from Benefit on my cheeks, hoping this will not be discontinued I fear it is.

  9. My favorite look was WnW nutty on the lid with MAC Copperplate in the crease :)

  10. Mariella

    I’ve really been loving the newer version of Too Faced’s Smokey Eye palette. I use Benefit’s CCE in RSVP as a base, Cloves over the entire lid below the crease and Up in Smoke on the outer lid and in the crease. I’ve been using WnW Brulee to blend and on the browbone (because it’s a nice matte). Lise Watier black or Gosh dark brown liner, MAC Dollymix on my cheeks and Plumful or Red Dwarf on my lips, though yesterday I forced myself to use Early Morning mineralized blush.

  11. AnGeLwInGz

    I’m still wearing the Dior “Garden Pastels” quint all the time. It’s gonna take a while to lose my interest!

    I wore MAC’s Tan Pigment with Swiss Chocolate in the crease and ricepaper to high light. Loved the look

  14. Michelle R.B.

    I tight lined my upper lash line with black pencil eyeliner, lined my bottom lash line with Urban Decay’s Stash eyeliner (matches my irises), curled my lashes, defined my eyebrows, and put matte beige eyeshadow on my lids and brow bones. Of course, I also used foundation, blush, and concealer. I completed the look with a reddish berry lip stain. Everything was just enough to highlight my good features instead of the bad ones.

    I like the softness of your look!

  15. barbara

    all indie products

    pretty addictions Snowblow on the lid.

    Shiver (pretty addictions) , Royal Sugar (sugarpill), Glistening Icicles, and Frostbitten on my crease (both pretty addictions)

    jordana lipstick in hollywood red

  16. Chantal

    Not wearing any makeup today, but I wore a a muted 60’s pin up look the rest of the week. No red lip though.

    Will you review the Dior Garden Roses palette and maybe the rest of the Dior spring collection?

  17. Andrea

    excuse my daughter lol

    I dont remember what I used Its mostly MAC except for a Nars hilighter
    I know ricepaper is on the lid
    the liptick is sweet sunrise

  18. Jenny

    Firstly, the eye look is gorgeous.

    Second, I’m not wearing much. Just mascara, a little blush, concealer, and nude lipstick. I bought one of the new Stila Smudge Crayons in Kitten that I have been wearing all day trying to make it work, but so far I’m not liking it that much. Love the texture swatched on my hand, but on my eyes, not so much.

  19. Michelle

    Favorite look was from yesterday, which was my indie eyeshadow experimentation day using goodies I’ve acquired in the past week or so. ūüėõ

    -Shiro Cosmetics “Mew” (shimmery peachy-pink) all over lid
    -Random unnamed satin beige to blend edges, brow highlight
    -Thick, winged black Tony Moly gel liner on upper lid
    -ELF Mineral Liner in brown on outer half of lower waterline
    -Set the brown liner with Shiro Cosmetics “Ganondorf” (black with burgundy sheen)
    -Shiro Cosmetics “Reverse Psychology” (shimmery light lavender) in inner half of lower lid
    -Fyrinnae “Confidence” highlighter in inner corner
    -Several coats of Daiso volume mascara, then
    -Several coats of Diorshow blackout mascara

    Face: Skin79 Triple Functions Super+ bb cream

    Lips: Rosebud salve


  20. I did a look with the new Rimmel eyeshadow quads! So fun! Neutral eye for a rainy day.

  21. heidi

    Today’s look was very classic. Loreal’s new infallable e/s in endless pearl all over the lid. Maybelline 24 hour tattoo e/s in tough as taupe in the crease. Black liquid winged liner, a matte face and clinique spiced apple(perfect wearable red) on the lips lined with mac brick. Mac warm soul on the backs of my cheeks as blush.

  22. Brenda

    I was really happy with this look – it’s kind of inspired by a mix of Lisa Eldridge and xsparkage:)

    Eyes: MUFE shadow #76 all over lid and in crease
    Fyrinnae “Te Amo” patted on lid, blended into crease lightly
    MAC Haux blended lightly right into crease, not blended onto orbital bone and blended onto outer 1/4 of lid, just to darken
    Yaby frosty cream colour (don’t know the name – it’s too far away right now to get it) from the Dramatically Neutral palette blended onto brow bone and highlight as well as inner corner/tear duct. Frosty mauve from the same palette under lower lashes
    Maybelline colour tattoo in Bold as Gold used as liner on top lashes
    L’oreal Collagen (??) Mascara

    Cheeks: Tarte cheek stain in Flower Child
    Lips: Chanel Rouge Coco shine in Boy

  23. Veronica

    Very pretty. I like how gentle the colors are blended together.

    This week was mostly light makeup or a subtle cat eye, but on Monday I tried the heavy liner look for the first time –

    Face: Maybelline FIT foundation in 115, Maybelline FIT blush in rose

    Eyes: Sephora black kohl liner around entire eye, winged out at the corners and smudged around the waterline, Maybelline Stiletto mascara

    Lips: Covergirl Lip Perfection lipliner in Seduce

    I usually don’t wear heavy black liner due to my pale skin tone, but I was surprised to see how many compliments I got when I wore it with a nude lip color. :) Might have to try it again.

  24. Hannah

    Detrivore heathen on the lid (new favorite!) and Body Shop 39 in the crease (matte grey) MAC shroom on the inner corner.
    Underneath I smudged yaby carbon paper (dark navy). I also used black to waterline and tightline.

  25. Marjolein

    My favorite look was the Milly Garden clutch from Dior.
    Flatters with the rainy and sunny weather in Holland.

  26. I threw a party in my place to celebrate the Chinese New Year today, and I wore MAC Woodwinked and Satellite Dreams (a bit of Urban Decay Purple Haze for the outer v)! I seldom mix two non-neutrals (OK, gold is almost neutral), but I really liked the result! For the rest of my face I used Tarte Peaceful, a bit of Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess matte bronzer, and MAC Sweetie :)

  27. Summer

    LOVE the look, Christine! I got the Garden Roses quint four days ago, and I just can’t bring myself to use it – I don’t want to destroy the roses! LOL

    I really loved the makeup I wore to a birthday lunch for a friend this week:

    – Diorskin Forever
    – Dior Shimmer Star in Amber Diamond as a highlighter

    – The pink shade from Bare Escentuals The Inspiration all over
    – The purple shade from BE The Showstopper on the lid
    – The blue/periwinkle Showstopper shade in the the inner corners
    – Buxom Lashliner in Sequins (black with silver microglitter) in a small wing on the upper lid, looked really kittenish and pretty
    – Diorshow Blackout mascara

    – MAC Play Time lipstick
    – Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Gloss in Electric Violet

    I picked up this pallet after seeing it here and am in total love. For years I have been tempted to try purples because they are supposed to be so good for brown eyes, but I always felt like they were very intimidating! A bright red lip? No problem. Bright orange lip and cat eye? No problem. Purple eye? EEK scary!! Plus I never saw purples I really cared for on the market.

    I am loving this pallet because it creates a soft, etherial glow that is both perfect for spring and incredibly wearable. My one tiny disappointment is that they didn’t wear as long as I would have hoped since they are coming from Dior… I really only got about 4 hours of true colors our of them, then another four of a subtle wash. Next time I will try a primer, but all in all, so satisfied with this purchase and thank you for showing it to us!

      Oh, and on days I wasn’t wearing this, I was wearing a tinted moisturizer I create myself on my hand in the morning made up of Bobby Brown Skin foundation and Cera Ve lotion (the potion of the Gods), with shimmery peach blush on the apples of my cheeks by Jane Iredale, and the orange lip gloss from Bobby Brown’s spring collection. It was all very soft and fresh and appropriate since I was mostly around the house with my husband and not out and about.

    This is so gorgeous and nude but a purple nude. Awesome work Christine, this looks AMAZING!
