Bright Makeup: Yellow, Pink, & Purple

Bright Makeup: Yellow, Pink, & Purple

I felt like playing around a bit last night, so I ended up with this at the end of playtime! Thought I’d share 🙂 I normally pair this kind of look with bright pink lips, but I thought I’d try something a little more orange, just for fun, so there are two lip combos in this look.

You will need the following…

For eyes, start by applying Soft Ochre paint pot as your eyeshadow base all over the eye area with the 249. With the 239 and water-based mixing medium (or water), apply Golden Lemon pigment all over the lid area. Using the 239, apply Goldenrod eyeshadow on the inner third of the eyelid. Next, apply Bright Sunshine eyeshadow on the middle third of the eyelid and lightly blend with the inner corner. Darken the outer third of the lid with Passionate eyeshadow with the 239, gently brushing it into the lower crease. With the 226, apply Beauty Marked eyeshadow into the outer crease, and then gently press Stars ‘n Rockets eyeshadow into the middle of the crease with the 239. Lightly tap and brush Bright Sunshine eyeshadow directly above the crease to soften. To finish the eyeshadow look, sweep Femme-fi eyeshadow as a highlighter on the brow bone. Bring everything together by applying Blacktrack fluidline on the upper lash line, Blackline eyeliner on the outer half of the lower lash line and Bright Sunshine eyeshadow lightly patted below the lower lash line with the 219 brush. Finish by sweeping lashes with Opulash and Plushlash mascara.

For cheeks, apply Sugarbomb blush to the apples of the cheeks and sweep upwards towards the temple with the 116.

For lips, apply Morange lipstick first, and then layer Venus glossimer for a complementing lip.  or try Schiap lipstick layered with Back to the Fuchsia lip shine.

Pretty! Would you mind telling me why you layered the yellow pigment under the yellow shadows? Was it to increase the intensity? Thanks so much!!

Yes, a colored base can help increase the color intensity of your eyeshadows, but the highly frosty/metallic finish of the pigment can also accentuate eyeshadow’s look 🙂

Wow! This screams summer! Makes me want to make some cocktails 🙂 I like the orange lips best! Bold looks are the best for you, I think 🙂 Do you wear them out often?

Psssst: you put the non-reviewed ones in italic! I can totally see what you were talking about. Brings down the uniformity a bit, no? Hmmm *ponders* Anyway, not that much of an issue so you can change it back if it bothers you 🙂

Thanks, Roxanne! 🙂

Yeah – I thought maybe the italics would be a subtle change without breaking up the flow, but not so great still, lol!

What a splashy look for the summer! Sooo wishing the warmer weather would hit NYC. I absolutely love both lip looks on you – especially the pink. I don’t think I’ve seen you do a look or feature on Nars Schiap… love that it’s made an appearance on your blog! I’ve been secretly wanting it for so long, but don’t know if I can pull it off the way you can!

You do bright and colorful looks so well Christine!

I tried to pick my favorite of the lippies but they both look so great it’s really difficult. Hot pink matches with this look so well but orange lips truly brighten up your whole look and it’s something different so I might pick the orange one as my favorite. Both are gorgeous though!

I love the look and the two lip combos are fierce but … I feel like the black eyeliner has nothing to do in this look ! I think it would look even better without it, but that’s my personal preference
Btw, you wear the orange lip incredibly well, it looks stunning on you, even better than the pink combo !

Did you use a Chromagraphic pencil on your waterline here, too? This is *gorgeous* and the colors work so well together! I feel like there might be a bit too much Bright Sunshine up near the browbone but that’s just a personal preference. Using Goldenrod as well as Bright Sunshine was really clever.

I’ll never really be crazy about orange lips but they are nicely done here! I just prefer the hot pink, what can I say 🙂

Woow, pretty! I must say I prefer the orangy lipcombo with the eyes, instead of the pink one, but I love the eyes. Will have to try something like that someday, I don’t know whether I’m brave enough yet 😛

That’s always a good rule of thumb! I love going outside the rules from time to time, though 🙂 There’s just something about bright yellows and pinks that screams for a bright pink lip to me!

I dunno Marian, I love that Christine flouts this “rule.” I feel like if you’re wearing eye makeup that’s this loud already, you might as well go whole hog and enjoy all the brightness you can fit in. I’m honestly not going to wear an orange or hot pink lip most days if I’m wearing a neutral eye, because it doesn’t “match” to me and overpowers what I’m trying to do with my eyes. So I actually really like pairing bright with bright! 🙂 (My favorite is the rainbow eye for Boston Pride, which I pair with Lickable lipstick!)

Just lining my upper lash line causes my lash line to water and itch, which then causes product to get into my eye, and then causes burning. Afterward, my lash line and lid are a bit swollen — so I really try not to do much in that area.

weird question i know, just something iv noticed lolz. i was also wondering how you depot ur mac shadows, do use flat irons or propanol, or another method?

Have you tried using wet eyeshadow to line your upper lashline? I swear by this. A good brush used damp with a Chanel black eyeshadow and you can’t even tell it isn’t traditional eyeliner, and without the irritation.

Hey Kristina,

I think it’s just *anything* getting on it — I actually have super, sensitive eyeballs, LOL. Like I constantly have to use anti-itch eye drops, so just the feeling of the brush that close to the lash line seems to bother it a bit.

Wow, you don’t play around EVEN when you play around! 😀 That’s a fierce look. And for once I actually prefer the orange lip to the pink lip to go with it.

I actually like the orange lipstick with that… It looks cool. Love the look too! The first thing I thought when I read it was, “Aww! Look at you coming up with an actual use for Beauty Marked!” Haha! 😉

i think it’s mac’s biggest eyeshadow letdown. EVERYONE looks at it in the pan and goes, “ooh! pretty!” and even when you tell them, “yeah, um… it doesn’t look like that when you put it on” they buy it anyway. i know this because i did the SAME THING! i had even used it before… and i hated it! but it was so pretty in the pan that i bought it. and i still hate it.

i make no sense… even to me.

When I’ve finished doing my testing on it, I will be happy to review it! I expect it will be soon, but I’m in the middle of midterms and finals over here, so I can’t commit to a certain date. Sorry 🙁

This look makes me so excited for Summer! I am sooo getting golden lemon pigment! Also because it was on your top MAC consumer pigments to try.

this one is great sweetie ….
when m i going to get perfection in using 2 – 3 colors …
aahhh u r awesome in doing ur makeup ….
it seems as if u r doing it for decades ( i know u r very young)
but u r perfectionist …. hats off to ur work ….. hobby i must say
now that is what we call Passion ….
love u n temptalia

I am on the Orange lip train…I think it compliments the eye more because you can see more of the yellow, if there were a little more pink/purple the pink would go better. I personally could not pull of any of this look- yellow on the eyes? You are brave and amazing!

So pretty! i love sunset type looks. You forgot to mention you used the chromagraphic pencil on your waterline (it looks like that at least)

This is one of the most gorgeous looks I’ve ever seen! I would wear this in a heartbeat, and not care if people stare. Beautiful!
