Burberry Beauty: A Simple Look

Burberry Beauty:  A Simple Look

Here is a quick look using the Burberry products I’ve been testing out over the past few days.  I will review everything soon, so please be patient as I give everything a fair test and write-up. 🙂

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: NARS Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Base (neutral eyeshadow base), Burberry Trench (02) Eyeshadow (beige), Burberry Taupe Brown (07) Eyeshadow (dark brown), Burberry Midnight Brown (02) Eyeliner (brown), MAC Plushlash Mascara (black)
  • Face: Burberry Sheer Foundation (03), Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder (translucent)
  • Cheeks: Burberry Russet (01) Blush (soft red-brown)
  • Lips: Burberry Ruby (18) Lipstick (ruby red)
  • Brushes: 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 226 (fluffy crease brush), 219 (pointed crease brush), 116 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: Trench = MAC Shroom; Taupe Brown = MAC Mystery

For eyes, start by applying Smudgeproof as your eyeshadow base all over the eye area with the 249. Using the 239, apply Trench eyeshadow all over the lower lid.  Then, apply Taupe Brown eyeshadow into the crease with the 226 and blend upwards.  Lightly blend Trench eyeshadow above the crease and highlight the brow with the 239.  Bring everything together by applying Midnight Brown eyeliner on the lower lash line.  Finish by sweeping lashes with Plushlash mascara.

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

For lips, apply Ruby lipstick for a complementing lip.

omg! you’re wearing just lipstick alone? look how juicy it made your lips! WOW! Do you think it rivals any of chanel’s lipsticks?

Yep, just a lipstick!

I still prefer Guerlain Rouge G as my favorite lipstick formula. It’s a little smoother than Chanel’s Rouge Allures.

Oh I love this look! Thanks for providing substitutes with MAC shades cause I am going to try it out tomorrow! Beautiful!
p.s.-Do you know of a good subsitute for the blush using MAC?

O.O funny thing… today I wore the EXACT SAME LOOK OF eye make up today. I used my Smashbox ‘Juxtapose’ quad. 😛 I’ve been having a lot of deja vu lately.

Ahh Christine, I love this! It’s very retro 🙂 Anxiously awaiting your review on the Burberry line as a whole, it sucks there are no Nordstroms near NYC 🙁

Aww! Only the San Francisco Nordstrom’s will be carrying the line (as far as nearby), which isn’t that nearby, so I don’t know if I’ll ever get to see it all up close!

hey christine, i have a really random question, in that it has nothing to do with this post. im currently using mac prep and prime on my face as a primer, but it doesnt seem to hold my make up in place at all. i have oily skin in the t-zone and open pores, and was wondering if you have any suggestions as to some primers that could hold my make up for longer. would really apreciate the help xoxo

Wow, this is a beautiful look on you! Very classic! I love neutral eyeshadows and this look is perfect – can anyone offer a duplicate look using Chanel or Bobbi?

gorgeous, as always 🙂

i saw lisa eldridge’s review/tutorial on YT and i have to say i would skip the eyeshadows and foundation because it’s just too sheer for my taste (esp. for the price. i’m assuming since they’re burberry, they will probably be expensive). but the lip & cheek products look fab and i’ll probably end up with those :p

I gotta say, the liquid foundation doesn’t seem very sheer to me, actually – will review it in full later – but I found the coverage pretty nice. Not heavy or full, but it’s light-to-medium and can certainly be built up to medium!

wow! at first i was going to tell you i like the eyes, but then i saw the red lips…and then the whole face….so pretty much i like all of it!

did you have a chance to wear it out someplace nice?

So pretty! The first picture made me want the eyeshadows, and then I scrolled down! That shade of red is absolutely stunning!! I am excited to see your review of it.

That last photo where you’re looking down with your eyes almost/shut makes you look like a forties screen siren – sizzling!

I think if I was going to replicate this look I’d plump for a more nude or beige blush – I can’t really pull off red tones – but it looks fabulous on you!

Well, you inspired me to try red toned blush again – I dug one out of my stash and put it on this morning… I think the key for me is to apply it a bit further back, just past the apples of my cheeks and then gently blend it forward.
Otherwise I just look a bit…funny. LOL!

Wowwww. That red lip/warm blush combo is KILLER on you. Makes me wish I was a little darker/warmer than I am so I could try it 🙂

Holy cow! I think you look fabulous! I wasn’t the least bit interested in Burberry products until I saw them on you! Just gorgeous!

Will you pretty please do a video tutorial on this look, christine?! I seriously think this might be one of my most favorite looks of all time!!!

I think so! It seems maybe a smidgen on the light side, BUT I think it might just be perfect – because it looks like a match in my car, LOL, where NOTHING ever looks like a match.

Wow- you are so beautiful! You make it look so easy, the gorgeous neutral eye never looked better. And those red lips! I wish I was confident enough to carry this look off!

ahhhhh this look is the look i have been trying to do on myself forever and can never achieve. you look beyond beautiful , absolutely gorgeous!!

This is such a gorgeous look, Christine. 😀 (I’m glad it loaded for me lol.) Smoking!

Off the top of your head, do you know of a good MAC dupe for the lipstick? As much as I love the color, I have a hard time paying for high end designer brands. :B I start feeling guilty and can’t enjoy the product lol.

Thank you so much! 😀
