Look - Make Up For Ever: Gold, Orange, & Pink

What better way to kick of a month of Make Up For Ever than by sharing with you my first look using their products? I did my best to use as many Make Up For Ever products, so that you can see exactly how they perform! 🙂  All eyeshadows used will be reviewed at some point during the month (hint, I’ll be doing five per post in rainbow order, so you’ll see some tomorrow!).

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Make Up For Ever #920 Star Powder (yellow gold base), Make Up For Ever #10 Eyeshadow (shimmery yellow gold), Make Up For Ever #153 Eyeshadow (shimmery peachy-gold), Make Up For Ever #5 Eyeshadow (matte coral-orange), Make Up For Ever #75 Eyeshadow (matte bright fuchsia), Make Up For Ever #160 Eyeshadow (matte eggplant purple), Make Up For Ever #101 Eyeshadow (sheer, yellow-gold shimmer), Make Up For Ever Aqua Black Waterproof Cream Eyeshadow (black), Make Up For Ever Aqua Smoky Lash Mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Make Up For Ever #5 Blush (matte coral-orange), Make Up For Ever #153 Blush (shimmery peachy-gold)
  • Lips: Illamasqua Obey Lipstick (pinky-coral), MAC Dejarose lipglass (dark pink)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 226 (fluffy crease brush), 219 (pointed crease brush), 214 (smudge brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 116 (dense blush brush), 165 (highlighting brush)

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply #920 Star Powder all over the lid as the base with the 249. On the inner lid, pack #10 eyeshadow on using the 239. Apply #153 eyeshadow to the middle portion of the lid. Alongside #153, apply #5 eyeshadow to the side towards the outer portion of the lid. On the outer lid and crease, apply #75 eyeshadow with the 226. Increase intensity by packing on more of #75 eyeshadow with the 239. Darken crease with #160 eyeshadow using the 219, and then blend out with the 226. Sweep #101 eyeshadow underneath the brow bone to highlight with the 217.  Smudge lower lash line with #10 eyeshadow with the 214 brush, pressing into lower lashes.  Finish with Aqua Black Waterproof Cream Eyeshadow on on the upper lash line using the 208. Apply Aqua Smoky Lash mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with #5 Blush using the 129, then highlight with #153 with the 165. Apply Illamasqua Obey lipstick to lips, and then top with MAC Dejarose lipglass for color and shine.

Wow! Such a beautiful look Christine. I really like this one. Question though, have you tried curling your eyelashes at all prior to mascara application? You seem like you have nice lashes & if curled they would really be a nice touch to your eye look. When you do falsies obviously it looks amazing but falsies are not always practical. But you can achieve that nice curled lash other ways. Just curious, cause I noticed you don’t seem to do so & didn’t know if it was for any particular reason.

Really excited about MUFE month. Great idea 🙂

lovelovelove! I think you should try and recreate some of their famous pictures. Like the dark eyes and lips one, or the crazy eyeliner one. Those would be fun to play with.

Christine, those eyeshadows have amazing colour pay off! And I love the way you’ve placed the colour… much more subtle but yet so effective! Tres chic!

ohmygosh, the lighting in the full face picture really just made the look pop! absolutely gorgeous! thank you for sharing~

I think a good MAC eyeshadow = a good MUFE eyeshadow. I think MUFE is more consistent with their matte eyeshadow range, though their shimmers/iridescents could use some work, IMO!

Love the lip color! Did you take your full face photo outside or in front of a window? It looks brighter. 🙂 This look is similar to your Orange, Gold and Pinky-Red look from last month but it’s still gorgeous!

Thanks! It was taken ouside 🙂

OMG, how embarrassing is that? I do these looks once every few weeks, and I keep doing the same one. LOL.

The eyeshadows look so soft and sparkly… I really like this look on you, Christine. The last picture could be like a promo pic for MUFE! Too bad there’s only one store in our country and it’s quite distant!

This is one of my favorite looks ever on you, Christine! I’m loving the subtle changes in eye shape you made.

These colors look incredible! MUFE totally lives up to the reputation.

I love this look, wanna try it soon. But now I gotta try to come up with some MAC dupes for the eyeshadows. Any suggestions?

Thanks! I already have Goldmine, so I’ll have to try getting the others eventually. Passionate was already on my list…along with every other pink MAC has already made, lol.

This is gorgeous, really nice and summery! The colours look really nice and bright. Love the idea of MUFE month – looking forward to reading the posts!

I LOVE it! I’ve been wearing bright shadows all the time recently. I’ve found I love blending light pinks with blues. I don’t think I have tried a gold with a pink before. It looks so pretty and bright!

I like the use of more matte shadows with the sheen/shimmer overlay..or so it looks. Sometimes I find the MAC shadows have to harsh of shimmer or frost and can look garish almost. This looks softer, more like it melts into the skin (in a good way!!)

When MUAs use MUFE for modeling, I really like the color payoff and how it seems to really become part of the face and not look like it just sits on top.


It’s a pity mufe products are so expensive =(
and they don’t sell in every country

Are there any mac dupes for any of these MUFE eyeshadows??

Christine, I am so impressed with how far along you’ve come in terms of makeup application. This eyeshadow colour combination is STUNNING, and so well done!! The colours are so clear and nothing is muddy at all, yet it’s all really blended and soft and looks positively airbrushed. Great accompanying lip colour, too. I like the new FOTD background. Very model-esque! I’m definitely going to look into the MUFE brand. I currently own only a few of their products.

Christine, you are beautiful. I am brasilian, and you have this latin beauty that i love so much.
But this pic is amazing because the sunlight show more of you!
