Liberty of London Look: Greens & Blues

Liberty of London Look: Greens & Blues

The boyfriend and I headed down to Monterey to visit the Aquarium, so I thought I’d try out some of the new products with some green in there to for that the “oceanic” feel!

I truly apologize for the lack of looks in the past two weeks.  It’s been an emotional time for my family as we said goodbye to my first dog, Willy (aka Woolly & Mr. Dog), who lived to be over seventeen years old, last Saturday.  I’m hoping this look will help me get back on track and give you all some more looks and the like.  Thank you for understanding!

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. Using the 239, apply Lucky Green eyeshadow on the inner half of the eyelid. Next, apply Birds & Berries eyeshadow on the outer half of the eyelid and lightly into the outer crease. Darken the crease by applying Bough Grey eyeshadow with the 226. To finish the eyeshadow look, sweep Femme-fi eyeshadow as a highlighter on the brow bone. Bring everything together by applying Graffiti eyeliner on the lower lash line and Lucky Green eyeshadow lightly patted below the lower lash line with the 219 brush. Finish by sweeping lashes with Plushlash mascara.

For cheeks, apply Prim & Proper blush to the apples of the cheeks and sweep upwards towards the temple with the 116. Highlight cheekbones with Shell Pearl beauty powder with the 165.

For lips, apply Ever Hip lipstick first, and then layer Frankly Fresh lipglass for a complementing lip.

Christine, no need to apologize. You lost someone and i understand where you are coming from. I am so sorry for your loss!! There will be better days 🙂

I think we both equally LOVE femme-fi as a highlight color. I bought a backup at my CCO the other month and I want to get another in fear of running out! LOL But I haven’t even hit pan yet on my very 1st femme-fi from the NeoSciFi collection! I don’t get why it’s so hard to use up! Sigh.

Ha, speaking of Femme-fi backups…when I hit pan on mine (which was from the original Neo Sci Fi release) I was like noooo, because I don’t have easy access to a CCO. But my mother does, and it was close to Thanksgiving, so I asked her to pick one up for me. I get home for Thanksgiving and find a bag on my bed with THREE Femme-fis in it! She said “The girl at the store told me it was discontinued and would be gone soon so I better stock up!” Awww Mom. So now I suspect I will never run out of Femme-fi, which is great 🙂

Yeah that made me smile real big! The CCO is the only place to get MAC w/in 2 hours of her, so I bought her a current color she loves last year that they didn’t have there. I think she’d be a bit frightened if she knew the full extent of my obsession, but I have fun talking beauty with her 😉

Love it! It looks super unique, but simple, but still super gorgeous! I’m gonna try with Green mix mineralize and bio green.

I’m so sorry about your dog, I know how close they can be. I am excited for more looks though!

So sorry for your loss, its like losing a family member.
Love the look and continue to enjoy all your MAC previews/reviews etc
Good Luck with the midterms!

Gorgeous look! I love Lucky Green paired with Birds and Berries! I think you might have convinced me to get Birds and Berries too as well as Lucky Green 😛 Just when I think I have everything narrowed down, you do a gorgeous look that makes me want things more! Have you seen the bags that go with this collection yet? I’m debating on the medium sized one, I love the print, but I’m not sure if the quality is very nice or not for $25. The only other things I’ll get from the collection is Birds and Berries and Blue India! I’m trying to resist Dame’s Desire, although I think it would work really beautifully with Stars and Rockets.

Hi Ashley,

The bags have the same design as the beauty powders, just in full and enlarged. So, it’s the bird and the print background and there are two birds (basically, the mirror image of each other). I haven’t actually seen the bags in person though, so I’m not sure what the texture/feel is!

Thanks!

This is soo beautiful. You make me wanna run and get that urban decay liner. I have been in a make-up rut and always look to your posts for inspiration. I’m inspired, lol. I also wanted to say thank you for the site, I’ve been a temptalia fan since it launched and I just wanted to commend you on the reviews, looks and the site all together. I know how hard and time consuming keeping up with a site is. So THANK YOU for all your efforts! Keep it up Cristine!

Hi Christine-

The look is great, I love Lucky Green on you.

I mostly wanted to comment to say how sorry I was for your loss. They really do become members of your family and it’s not fair that they don’t get to be around as long as we are. I’ll be thinking of you.

One of my favorites – got a huge dip in mine, ha!

Thank you so much, Chrissy! I appreciate it 🙂

Man’s best friend and doesn’t even live 1/4 of our lives!

Thank you! 🙂 He lived a very long & healthy life, so we were very happy that we had him for as long as we did.

This is awesome, Christine – love the use of Lucky Green here and how Bough Grey sort of softens the blue. Also, I have to say it’s nice to see a look knowing you are wearing it out. I dunno why, it’s just fun to think of it “in use” 🙂

that look is fantastic, I love it (though it’s rare for me not to love the looks you come up with. I think there was one I wasn’t a huge fan of and I don’t even remember what it was now LOL. Sorry about the dog, losing a pet that’s been in your family for such a long time is always hard. I think I cried for like 2 days almost straight when we put our first cat down. I love the 2 cats I have now but nothing really ever comes close to the first one does it.

Hi! I bought the 249 brush last night because the MA said I should get it because I have large lid space (I wanted a brush to pack on color, like 239). The 249 is a tad big and not that firm though, should I take it back and exchange it for the 239? I specifically want it for some of my older shadows that seem to have gone down in pigmentation so I can pack them on. (ex: I have a Bitter shadow from 2004)

Halps!

Hi Christine! I am very sorry for your beloved dog’s passing; I know what it’s like and it’s so hard to accept a best friend is gone. Don’t worry ever about a lack of looks posts – we understand there is a lot going on in your life! Thanks for this look, it is amazing! Take care!

🙁 I am soooo sad to hear of your family sadness! I cannot even imagine how sad this must be for you and your family, I know you have Mellen….but…I am just so sorry to read this.

Lots of love to you and your family

Christine, I am so sorry for your loss, losing a pet is devastating!
But it’s good to know he had a healthy,long and happy life with you and your family. Thank You for still finding time and the spirit to make all these posts, they brighten the day for many of us, i’m sure!
And i’m very intrigued by Bough Grey, I just love these mixed and subtle colours. 🙂

I’m so sorry about your dog 🙁 Losing my dog was one of my most difficult moments in my life, it’s very hard to deal with.

The look is very gorgeous, and this just confirmed that I need Birds & Berries in my life! Such a beautiful color, I don’t think I have eyeshadow like that one yet.

Okay you solidfied my choice in purchasing bough grey when the line comes out. I may pass on Shell pearl sadly – it’s beautiful on you but I bet it would barely show on me! Oooh Birds and Berries is pretty too!

I love the look. The green eyeliner really makes your eye color pop.

I also wanted to say sorry about Willy. We lost our 19 year old cat, Bootsy, last year. It’s extremely difficult to lose a pet, especially one who’s been a part of your family for such a long time. It sounds, though, like Willy lived a long and happy life with a family that loved him very much, and that’s all anyone could really ask for. :’)

So sorry to hear about your dog, I have a little Yorkie who is my baby so I totally feel for you! Hope your week gets better! 🙂

Christine, I’m so sorry to hear about your dog. It’s never easy to lose a pet. I’m welling up just thinking about it. Seventeen years is such a good, long time though. I’m sure he felt very loved.
Thinking of you and your family. XO~Stef

PS) Wonderful look, as always.

I’m very very sorry to hear about Willy, Christine!

Your look is gorgeous, but I wouldn’t expect anything less from you! I think this has convinced me to give Bough Grey a try after all. It looked very “muddy” in the pan, but I love it on here.

Hi Christine,
I really love your lips here! I think I’m going to buy ever hip l/s. Not sure about the frankly fresh lipgloss though because I am planning on getting the richer lusher cremesheen glass tomorrow. If I do get that, do you think I can skip frankly fresh, or should I get both?

This looks so lovely! But to be honest, I have never seen you wear an eye colour that does not suit you or that was not done beautifully! Blue and green together? Who would have thought…. 🙂 Nice job, Christine. As always.

this is such a pretty look! really brings out the colour in your eyes 🙂

it’s spring colour forecast launch day today in the UK so i’m killing time before my local counter opens… i’m so impatient!

I really want Birds and Berries and Bough Grey, but I don’t know how to wear them! What other colours would you recommend pairing them with apart from green?

You truly are a master of blending and choosing great colors! I’m sorry to hear about Willy. Were he and Mellan good buddies?

Thank you, Millie!

Actually, they weren’t, lol! My family’s dogs (I grew up with two of them; they added one while I was away at college) don’t like Mellan at all. I think Willy in particular was probably more confused than anything else – he met Mellan when Mellan was a puppy (like 10 lbs and smaller than him), but he got blinder over time… and he probably had no idea why all of a sudden he can walk under Mellan! (Willy was a mixed terrier rescue – about 18 lbs or so!) The other two dogs are also small (another mixed terrier and then a rescued pekingese).

Christine, this is just gorgeous!! On a side note, I just heard the liberty of London scarf will only be at the store in soho! I’m so sad! I pray they have it online! I want it so badly!

I tried out this eye look for today with some minor adjustments, and it turned out great! I didn’t add any eyeliner or eyeshadow under the eye, and I used Silver Ring lightly in place of Bough Grey, but it came out looking so fun! This look from you definitely convinced me to buy Lucky Green and Birds and Berries, and I’m so glad I did! Thanks Christine for an awesome look!

Aww, yay!! Isn’t Lucky Green AMAZING? I love it so!! I was so excited they made it perm so I can use it again and again!
