Yellow, Orange, Coral with MAC Big Bounce & Fashion Flower

This is a look I did last week to test out the MAC Big Bounce eyeshadow for twelve hours.  For reference, you really don’t need Fresh Daisy in this look.  I initially wanted to use it in the inner corner (and you can see a very little bit), but it was just too stark against my skin tone so I covered most of it with Bright Sunshine.

You will need the following…

For eyes, start by applying Reward Yourself eyeshadow all over the lid and above the crease with the 242.  Apply Fresh Daisy eyeshadow to the inner tearduct with the 239.  Next, apply Bright Sunshine eyeshadow to the middle of the lid with the 239.  Gently blend Rule eyeshadow to the outer third of the lid and into the crease with the 239.  Darken the crease with Free to Be eyeshadow using the 222.

For cheeks, apply Springsheen blush on the apples of the cheeks and sweep towards the temple with the 116.

For lips, apply Ever Hip lipstick and top with #2 lipgloss for a complementing lip.

    I love this!!!

  8. I’m a little confused: olive green base? And where are Lucky Green, Groundcover and Bows & Curtsey in the look? Maybe you were a bit hasty when it came to copying & pasting, no? Otherwise I like the eyemake up, but the whole face picture looks a bit too shiny and pink imo.

    • Sorry :( I was writing this at 3AM since it’s finals week so I spent all weekend studying and forgot I didn’t have any posts lined up for today. Again, sorry for my blunder!

    • Anitacska, I noticed this too, but I knew that it was most likely a mistake. We students are usually pressed for time. :) Christine is great at posting Looks on a regular basis. I have not posted an EOTD in ages. :(

  9. Wow, this really changes your brown eyes! The tones look so different. Love it!

    Love the lipstick/lipgloss combo! The eye makeup kind of reminds me of candy corns ; )

  11. Maryel

    Love it :)

  12. Ivory

    Wow, you look like a goddess of sun!!:O These beautiful sunny colors suit your eye color so well—>Your eyes are glowing like gem!!

  13. The lip color is a nice compliment to the eye makeup!

  14. This makeup was very beautiful!

  16. vanessa

    BEAUTIFUL! as always! You look so ready for summer :)

  17. Gracie

    This is gorgeous! As someone who’s relatively new to makeup, I love when you do these tutorials :) plus now I really really want both ever hip and springsheen!

  18. Julie

    This look is sooo pretty! You look so beautiful and summery, Christine. I actually really like that bright inner corner highlight. Makes you look wide awake! I don’t think I could pull off this look, though. I always feel like I look “overdone” when I experiment with my eyeshadows :/

    • Thanks, Julie!

      Aww, it’s probably just that you’re not used to it – but if you keep at it, wear it around the house, I think you’ll come to love it!

  19. Alyssa

    It would be awesome if you could post pictures of each step as you go!

  20. The colors really suits you, thank you for the great inspiration. I’m definetly gonna do that tomorrow

  21. Beautiful, I love it!

  22. Jai

    The whole look really suits you well… I love it! :)

  23. Shelly

    This might sound odd, but I’d almost rather see something else instead of “You will need the following…”–maybe something more like “I used the following,” just because there are so many color dupes out there that there is a huge range of products you could use rather than MAC’s, especially given the iffy consistency of the BB shadows. I hope that didn’t sound nitpicky–this is a beautiful look as always, Christine!

  24. This is gorgeous! I loved it when you posted it in the Big Bounce reviews, and I was hoping you would tell us what you used! I had no idea that MAC Rule was that bright of an orange though, it is so pretty! I’ll probably do a look like this tomorrow now, but with Sugarpill Flamepoint and whatever else I can find!

  25. Lucy

    I love this look but I calculated how much each individual eyeshadow costs and it comes out to over $60. And I don’t have any dupes. For this reason alone I’m gonna have to pass. But I am copying you Urban Decay Rollergirl palette looks!

  26. ruru

    aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! I’m absolutely in LOVE with this look! It’s exactly like the one I’ve been trying to do with NYX’s Shangri-la palette!!!

  27. Ashley

    You look so fresh and beautiful! LOVE the overall look =D

  28. Lovely Christine and you look so prettyyy and love the springsheen on your cheeks :)

  29. Annalogik

    I love it when you wear golds, oranges, reds on the eyes :) Gorgeous!! I’m just missing a yellow e/s in my stash to copy this look! I will try with a gold e/s though, I’m a sucker for oranges and golds :)

  30. Teri

    I love this!!! I just don’t like the blush color. Otherwise the eyes are full of awesomeness!!!!

  31. this is amazing! I can’t wait to try this out on myself now. thanks for the inspiration!

  32. I really love this look.. she is glowing. Awesome colours for the summer.

  33. Bubbles

    Oh wow! This is so cute! Perfect look for summer! Do you know anything that’s similar to Bright Sunshine?

  34. Christine! I asked if you were going to do a tutorial on this and you said no, but I meant look! Sorry about that, and thank you for the look and product breakdown! (: I can’t go through a day without your website! (:

  35. Erica

    You look gorgeous and your makeup is always so perfectly blended!

  36. danielle

    im so going to try this its finally great to see someone with my complexion and eyecoloring who inspires me to branch out with my eyecolor as I often feel like my complexion limits me =/

  37. Baba

    You have an Angel face!!

  38. Chau

    this color combination is so tricky to pull off, but you did it. you look beautiful! your eyes don’t look at all.

  39. Fushsia

    This is so pretty I just love the colors it looks amazing on you!

  40. erica

    i really like this.. it kind of reminds me of a way toned down geisha look just because of the combination of the shadow color and the cheek color (i.e. it’s cute lol)

    Hi Christine,

    I bought the “free to be” eyeshadow after seeing this look but I don’t understand how you made it go on so nicely. I’m olive toned and the color just doesn’t pop as much and actually doesn’t come onto the brush very well. How did you do it?
