Dare to Wear Look: Yellow, Green, Blue

Dare to Wear Look:  Yellow, Green, Blue

I gave false eyelashes another try.  I’m proud to say I was at least able to get them on decently without 2 hours lapsing!  They’re not perfect (both are a little high), but I tried to compensate by dabbing Blacktrack between my lashes and the false lashes.  I will say that it’s not noticeable from a normal viewing distance — but up close, you can kind of tell (even with my “fix”).  But for me, I’m pretty satisfied, since normally, it takes me 45 minutes to get one on, and by that point, the makeup is either so messed up or I’m so defeated I give up.  (And trust, I have watched a bajillion tutorials, know all the tips, and I still struggle.)  I should have also used more glue, because after 10 minutes, the edges seemed to pull back a bit.  I only wore this for twenty minutes or so, as my upper lash line was itching something fierce.

While I aspire to always be better at everything I do, inevitably, I don’t always get things perfect — but it’s part of the learning process, and I don’t mind sharing my journey with all of you! 🙂

You will need the following…

For eyes, start by applying Smudgeproof as your eyeshadow base all over the eye area with the 249. Using the 239, apply Going Bananas eyeshadow on the inner third of the lid and pull upwards along the inner crease. Lightly blend Lime eyeshadow on the middle of the lid with the 239. Apply Zingy eyeshadow on the outer third of the lid with the 239 and lightly bring into outer crease. Next, apply Sassy Grass eyeshadow into the crease with the 226, lightly blending onto the outer lid. Blend Trench eyeshadow with the crease shade and highlight the brow bone. Bring everything together by applying Deviant liner on the lower lash line. Finish by sweeping lashes with Plushlash mascara. Add false lashes if desired.

For cheeks, apply Springsheen blush on the apples of the cheeks and sweep upwards towards the temple with the 116, then lightly pat Mary Lou-manizer on the cheekbones.

For lips, apply So Bad lipglass for a complementing lip.

I love it! it looks like blue and green velvet on your eyelids!

its funny that you find lashes hard cause i find them ok but i don’t think my make up application technique is as good as yours! Happy friday!

Whoa – the application and color arrangement here is sheer genius! The way Zingy is sort of hugged by the two green colors, and the subtle pop of frost in surrounding the mattes with Goin’ Bananas – WOW. Seriously artful. And glowy glowy cheeks…sigh, I looove Springsheen.

ohhhhh wow christine, you always look super glam in your picks but the fake lashes wooaaahhhh, you look awesome, they really suit you!!!! thanks for the look!!!! i also wanted to ask how it was working with the shadows to create a look??? were they easy to work with or not???

pretty! did you put in the post what lashes those are? i missed it if you did. i’m not a huge false lash fan myself but use them often enough… i’m constantly looking for good reviews and top picks from people (and never finding ANYTHING!).

i’d love to see someone do something like your “temptalia’s must have” mac lists – like you’ve done with shadows, lipsticks, etc. i have referenced those lists SO many times! (i actually have those website pages printed out in a binder! haha!)

In the list of eye products! Urban Decay Darlin’ Lashes. They seemed fine to me, but I’ll have to see how they hold up to being used more than once.

I love this look. Especially since yellow is my fav color and I am often wearing it. I know not too many people like to deal with that color but I tend to gravitate towards it lol. Plus I love that color combo. I have the same problem as u with the false lashes so I just make my sis do it for me lol. When she’s not around I try to use a mascara that comes close to making them look like falsies. I’m not having much luck lateley tho. I used to swear by Mac loud lash but we all know that was discontinued so now I am still in search for the perfect mascara lol. After looking at your pictures I wanna go out and grab that lipglass. I think that’ll be my treat today lol. Although I know that that’s just gonna get me in trouble cuz I’m gonna end up buying other stuff from the Dare to Wear collection. =)

WOW! soooo gorgeous. Loving the false lashes on you too. really brings out the eyes.

what is ur opinion of the Mary Lou-manizer? i was thinking of getting either that or mac soft and gentle. any recommendations?

LOVE IT! I’m so surprised, because honestly, I wasn’t too amazed by these eyeshadows from the swatches, but I just love how on your eyes, the matte-ness and chalkiness of these shadows just lets the bright color pop. Beautiful!

whattttttttttttttt!! omg i thing this is one of the best looks you ever made christine!!! really i must say you look beautiful!! the lipstick , the shadows the false lashes i mean everything is perfect!! i dont know hoy u do it to be so creative!! i will never be able to do that!! Congrats!! =)

Great look Christine, you’ve got it 🙂 seems we both have issues with lashes, I just cannot make it work! Recently I sat myself down, and tried applying single lashes, that actually worked a little better 🙂

This is absolutely gorgeous! I was already set on getting Sassy Grass, but now Zingy is looking like a must.

I’m curious, between Electric Eel and Zingy, which would you say is a better buy? I’ve always wanted Electric Eel, but Zingy almost has a slightly minty look that I’m really liking (of course that could most likely be because it’s paired with greens here).. but are there any differences between the two shadows, like texture, color payoff, etc? I just think having both is excessive.

Thanks, Lizz! 🙂

Zingy is a lighter version of Electric Eel. Electric Eel also leans just a touch teal/green (but it’s REALLY, REALLY subtle). I would say Electric Eel, if only because it’s more pigmented.

you know i have to say i usually see your bright eye looks on here and think that i can’t pull them off. but now that you have those lashes on i think i might try! i need to get lashes like those…

Wow, this look is amazing! Lately I’m really into light blues and greens and yellows so probably that is why I do like it a lot. I’ll try it for sure but no false eyelashes for me…

looks terrific! it’s nice to see you back on the bright yellow/green track…it feels like trademark temptalia!

i felt like you were describing my false lash experiences to a T….sometimes they work for me by fluke, but most of the time they make me crazy it takes so long! i ended up doing a similar thing last week with my blacktrack. i don’t know if it’s just me, but i didn’t find the finish i got as seamless as when i’ve put blacktrack on in advance.

i recently picked up some bottom lash falsies, so i’m going to give those a try sometime soon (when i have an extra hour to do my makeup, of course! 😉

I’m glad I”m not alone, though! I do agree that Blacktrack looks better initially applied than over top lashes.

Why do I look at this post? I’ve been trying so hard to avoid looking at this collection. I went overboard with In the Groove, but dang I love the mix of finishes on your lids. It looks so pretty on you.
(and I used to wear false lashes for years. But for some reason, I can’t do it anymore. I can never keep the corners from lifting. Aggravating. You did a good job, but you also have such nice natural lashes. jealous 🙂 )
Let me ask you, I read your review of the shadows. But I’m still kind of torn. I’m looking at Going Bananas, Sassy Green, Zingy, Aqua, Lime.. (and maybe Atlantic Blue and Shock a Holic) I know Lime and Atl. Blue are perm pro. In your overall opinion, after using some in a look, do you think these are wow worthy?
I know it’s subjective. I have to ask, in order to take the proper steps in maintaining my sanity however.
Thanks Christine!!!

Btw, I’m thinking the eyeliner I got last night is so pretty, and would look great with some of these shadows. I got the CG liquiline in Green Glow. SO pretty. Thanks for that review. I never would have looked otherwise!

ok, last post I promise. I should add that I don’t have mattes in any of these mattes. In general, do you think these are a good shadows to start my matte collection?
I have the coastal scents matte pallete, but the staying power is less than great. I never use it.
Thank you again so much!

Uh oh!!

I liked them, and I didn’t have any trouble using them at all. I really like Going Bananas, Sassy Green, and Zingy a lot from the list you’re interested in. Although Atlantic Blue has my heart.

Gorgeous! This looks so edgy with the top liner and the falsies, a totally different look than if you did it without. Thanks to your eyelids for itching for you to get these pics 🙂

Dont give up. I struggle too. Make the line SUPER thick cut them do the start mid lash its easier to make them stay when they dont have to contend with the edge of your eye. But also individuals work just as well (just as aggrevating maybe moreso) but look much more natural and another tip is buy lashes with a thin or almost invisible weft, IT DOES make a difference!!! The thick band on most cheapies, or even nicer brands makes it hard to blend and look natural. Bend them around ur finger to make sure theyre nice and round before application. Have a set of tweezers and maybe a cuticle stick to press on the edges (that tend to give me the most trouble). Have patience and keep trying even if only in the house and then take them off. 🙂

I have done all that, LOL! I’ve tried cutting, using tweezers, using the false eyelash clipprs, etc. Truly, I have done it all and nothing makes it easier!

I just don’t have 2 hours to waste on them to be honest, which is why I very rarely bother :/ I see the 2 hours go by and think about how much other stuff I needed to get done instead!

Gorgeous look! I love greens! I’m the same way with false eyelashes though. I know the tips, but it still takes me for-ever to put one of them on with all the repositioning and re-applying glue and fixing makeup. I usually end up shaking my fists at the ceiling while shouting some version of “Curses!” ” NOOOOO~” or “Why me!”. Then I give up and put loads of mascara on. They are just not for me and that’s cool. There is so much more to a look that I don’t mind going without them. Really.

Thank you, Abby!

LOL! Yes, I know that feeling WELL! I don’t mind either, but I can see their benefit — they are sooo heavy to me, since I don’t wear them often, lol.

OMG this has got to be one of my favorite looks that you have done. I’m a sucker for bright mattes. & those lashes look fabulous on you!

I like it…you look cute! I’m curious what does your boyfriend say about your looks? What does he like and what doesn’t he like?

I must say, You look lovely!
When I first saw the colors in DTW collection I thought “mattes??? blah” but now that I see them on You – they look so gorgeous! And the colors!!! Your eye makeup reminds me of some fizzy long drink, the colors blend so nicely !
I must see this collection in person, definitely!
and about the lashes – my one and only attempt ended up in a failure. Not trying that out again. Plus, I’m quite satisfied with my lashes 😉 not anormous ones but not that bad 😀 So I envy You cuz it looks quite fine 🙂

Thanks so much! 🙂

I like the way natural lashes look, too – and I was kind of hoping the falsies would be more dramatic than these were, lol!

My first thought was, “ROOWWRR!” The one on your right eye looks like it’s falling out at the edge a bit, but you are workin’ those falsies nonetheless! Are you going to do a review on those new UD lashes?

Speaking of falsies, I saw your sticker on those Revlon lashes in Rite Aid a few days ago. Congratulations!

Wow Christine we both have similar looks today! I’m wearing Going Bananas, Zingy, Sky Blue, Aqua, Deviant eyeliner, and So Bad!

Nice blend of colours, but not a look I would do for myself!

In the last photo, it looks like your lashes are coming off at the sides.

hey christine could u plz tell me what eyelashes u applied? are they Mac ones or some other ones..i really like the look and would like the same ones hope u answer my question thanks in advance 😀

sorry haha in my excitement to copy ur look (attempt to that is) i missed the part where u wrote it..love how responsible you are to ur fans!! x

I try to do it on occasion so people can see what it looks like, even though I’ll have some residual irritation for a few hours.

If I do it, I only wear the look long enough to photograph – then I remove it, so I minimize the irritation!

All the way from Mombasa, Kenya. Love you and love your Reviews and Tutorials! Love this Look! As I Love Green eyeshadow! You look sooo Preety!!

Aww, Christine, I think that you got the lashes just right. When I had to pass my MAC test at the counter a long time ago, I was freaked out because I would have to apply lashes. It’s easier for me to do it on someone else, rather than my own eyes. My small tip, for easier application, try cutting them in half. That really helped me. The whole false lash IS a toughy!

Thank you! They are definitely WAY easier on others. I’ve tried cutting them in half (and even thirds!) and still didn’t find it worked for me, lol. I am lash inept!

wow, am i really the first comment? cool!
you look gorgeous as usual, Christine, but with an added kick because of those luscious falsies! so glam!

WOW Christine you look super GORGEOUS with false eyelashes on! It gives your look the extra ummph!!! Springsheen blush looks beautiful on you!! How similar would you say springsheen and orgasm is?? I just cant make orgasm look good on me. I have coralista witch is like orgamn but pinkier witch suits me better. Would you say springsheen is like orgasm?

as soon i saw the pic, i said to myself outloud “wow! that’s beautiful!” LOL. i truly mean it, christine. i absolutely LOVE your bright, colorful looks. i am definately feeling the dare to wear collection. it’s right up my alley- bright colors AND mattes. yum!

i think it looks great!!! lol if that is ‘imperfect’ then i hate to think what happens the few times i actually attempt to do false lashes… it would be great if you would post the tips you have!!! 🙂

Thanks, Ace!

I can give tips, though none of them work for me, lol! Cutting them in half/thirds, using tweezers, looking downward…

you look beautiful with falsies 🙂 Practice makes perfect so keep putting them on. On oneof those tries your gonna come up with a trick or method that works for you.


Yeah – the thing is… I just don’t have 2 hours to waste doing something like false lashes – I wish I did, though. I just have so many other things I need to get done that it’s not worth spending that much time on it.

When I was checking out this look, my boyfriend looked over my shoulder and said “That’s cool! You should do that look!” You know when it gets his attention/approval, it’s an awesome look. Are there any substitutes for Lime? I think the closest thing I have is Rated R. Boo.

Omg Christine. Looks absolutely cute cute and everyday-wearable. And the falsies look fab as well. I’m so happy to see you use a look with the new collection already. It was hard for me to pick which e/s were must haves. But thanks to your recommendations I ended up getting: sassy grass, louder please, and shock-a-holic 🙂 Beautiful look again!

Before I read anything you wrote (even afterwards), I want to say your eyes look amazing! Really like how the lashes brought up the look!

Please do more looks with at least liner on the top lash line , it looks beautiful & personally , for me , I ‘ve always found % 90 of eye make up looks incomplete without at least some liner on the top , preferably black .

Hi Sari,

It irritates my eye – it causes my upper lash line to itch, swell, and sometimes my lid gets swollen.
