Look – Beige Nudes with Deep Blues

This look is from yesterday πŸ™‚ It’s pretty simple, and I had originally intended to wear one of Colour Ready’s bright lipsticks with it, but it definitely did *not* look good with a super bright lip. I can’t figure out why the cheeks stand out so much in pictures, because they SO didn’t in real life. I liked the way the eyes turned out, but I definitely could have paired it with different cheeks/lips to really bring it all together. Maybe next time πŸ™‚

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Soft Ochre paint pot (neutral beige base), Ricepaper eyeshadow (soft beige-neutral), Deep Truth eyeshadow (dark navy blue), Freshwater eyeshadow (medium bright blue), Eve Pearl Liquid Liner Pen (black), Givenchy Navy kohl (navy blue), Plushlash mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Dior Coral Riviera blush (soft coral)
  • Lips: Sweetie lipstick (pink), Cult Fave lipglass (pastel pink)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 226 (fluffy crease brush), 214 (smudge brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: Cult Fave = Cultured

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Soft Ochre paint pot all over the lid as the base. On the lid, apply Ricepaper eyeshadow using the 239. Darken crease with Deep Truth eyeshadow using the 226, then overlay with Freshwater eyeshadow. Sweep Ricepaper eyeshadow underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with Givenchy Navy kohl on lower lash line, Eve Pearl Liquid Liner Pen on upper lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Dior Coral Riviera blush with the 188. Apply Sweetie lipstick to lips, and then top with Cult Fave lipglass for color and shine.

A few readers asked for a recent picture of Magellan, so here’s one… I’m not sure if posted it already, but it’s fairly recent and my favorite I’ve taken of him.

Ooh, I really like this look :o) ! I’ve been thinking about trying out beige/nude eyeshadow with forest green or blues in the crease but haven’t quite been brave enough to try it, as I wasn’t sure how it would turn out. Think I will definitely have to try it out now! It’s been great how you have been posting quite a few looks recently. I really like seeing looks but I know that it must take a while to take photos and put them together, so it’s really great to see them when you post them!

i love this look πŸ™‚ while reading what you wrote about better pairing your eyes with different cheek/lip colour next time, i thought it was gonna be like a bright lip and bright cheeks. but it really looks good in the pictures! love the whole combi. am going out tmr and might just do this look πŸ˜‰

Perfect 10!!!! I really HONESTLY love this look on you. Im gonna take it but add my nude lip πŸ™‚ Awww I need to get a get dog, I want a HOTDOG dog but my mom thinks their ugly. Ill be on later, the man is coming to my place and the last thing is wants ringing in his ear-is makeup πŸ™‚

I actually really love the cheek/eye/lip combo. It looks beautiful on you!

Awww, Mellan!! He looks so happy!

Love the look! I wish I was brave enough to try this..and had the skills to blend it this well. :o)
I also really like the hot pink lips with the e/s combo! So nice!

πŸ™‚ Yep, that’s his happy place, LOL!

Thanks, Eva! I bet you’d rock this look. Give it a shot, you never know!

I usually go with peach/coral on the lips instead of pink when I pair blues together.. but I always wondered what it look like with pinks. Ty

I love everything about this look!!! You look super hot, Christine. You should bust this look out for summer too! Im going to get that Dior blush pronto. Christine your sense of color is so good, and your skills are inspiring. Thanks for posting a pic of that super cute dog of yours too.

Thanks, Arika πŸ™‚ LOL, I try to avoid repeating looks so I probably won’t, but I’ll definitely keep it in mind! It’s good to know it’s worth a second try πŸ™‚

I absolutely love this look and i used it for inspiration today! Except i had to use a navier blue to match my outfit, but the look inspired that too! keep up the great work!
