Look: NARS Melusine Eyeshadow Duo
Look: NARS Melusine Eyeshadow Duo
Here’s the look I talked about in my review of NARS Melusine! This was a super quick look — I think it took five minutes at most.
You will need the following…
- Eyes: NARS Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Base (neutral eyeshadow base), NARS Melusine Eyeshadow Duo (silver-plum/eggplant), Burberry Trench Eyeshadow (highlighter), MAC Black Swan Pearlglide Eyeliner (silvered black), MAC Plushlash Mascara (black)
- Face: Make Up For Ever HD Foundation (140), Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder (translucent)
- Cheeks: NARS Albatross Blush (white gold)
- Lips: Guerlain Gillian Rouge G Lipstick (pink-brown), Chanel Imaginaire Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss (pink)
- Brushes: 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 217 (fluffy crease brush), 116 (dense blush brush)
For eyes, start by applying Smudgeproof as your eyeshadow base all over the eye area with the 249. Using the 239, apply the silver-plum shade on the lid. Lightly blend the eggplant eyeshadow in the crease and diffuse upwards with the 217. Blend Trench eyeshadow with the crease shade and highlight the brow bone. Bring everything together by applying Black Swan eyeliner on the lower lash line. Finish by sweeping lashes with Plushlash mascara.
For cheeks, apply Albatross blush on the apples of the cheeks and sweep upwards towards the temple with the 116.
For lips, apply Gillian lipstick first, and then layer Imaginaire lipgloss for a complementing lip.

I really want this now! Thank God Christmas is coming up soon.
LOVE!! Will probably add this to my holday shopping list…”one for her, one for me”. Sigh. That’s been this years trend. My visa card will soon be on lockdown. But I’ll look good at least!
Thank you, Amy!
Beautiful look. I realy like the colors.
very pretty! 🙂 it all goes so well together! love it!
Thanks a lot, Bella!
You look awesome this should be one of your Go To looks.
Thank you, Diana!
This look is gorgeous, Christine – purple eyeshadows are my favorites, I’ll definitely be trying something like this soon! (Also, I never knew there was another freckle on your cheek there, I can never see it through your smile! It makes you look even more adorable :3)
Thanks a lot, Arlee! 🙂
I think I had a duo from Shiseido back in 1997 that had similar colors. Can’t wait to purchase this Nars one!
Gorgeous look! I have been eyeing that due — except the plum looks exactly like Fig 1 by MAC. Does MAC have a dupe for the silvery lilac color??
lol, I meant “duo” not due
They don’t 🙁 I always want to say Shale, but Shale is brown on me.
so pretty! i cant wait to get my hands on this duo!!
Thank you! 🙂
Stunning. That’s all I have to say!
Lovely lovely 🙂 I’m not sure if I’ve ever mentioned it before, but this is the ONE look I’ve always wanted to be able to do — a pop of purple in the crease with an otherwise neutral eye. I just love it! Pretty, fun, and really easy…
But of course, with my wonderful luck, I ended up without a crease at all *eye roll* 😛
Thanks a lot, Rae 🙂
Love, love, love this entire look! 🙂
I really love this entire look on you – So fresh and pretty but with the purple edge to it :]
Thank you, Janice!
I love this look on you! I think I’ll try it. It might makes my green eyes pop!
I really wanna buy albatross now!!!
Can you do more looks or even holiday looks? I really like these posts! 😀
You can always check the archive, too – there are over 700 looks 🙂
i noticed that all the looks you do feature a really light lid and a pop of color on the crease, cool
Check out the archives – there’s a lot more than that 🙂
Gorgeous! Love the purple on you!
Thank you, Phyllis!
Very nice! Your look makes me want to get the Black Swan pearlglide – it’s so pretty!
I love purples this is another one I must get. Thanks for the look.
No prob, Leenie!
oh wow, I JUST received Albatross and Melusine also, from the VIB sale at Sephora! I absolutely love Albatross, I wish I had bought it sooner, its perfect on me, and it looks beautiful on you too! Thanks for this look with Melusine, I was wondering how this would look on me and was hesitant to use it. Now I’m pretty sure I will look good on me as well, as we have similar coloring (i’m a C30).
One request if you have time, can you also do a look with the Dior Five Golds quint? I bought it right after seeing your review & beautiful swatches of it, but I’m a little intimidated by the strong colors and not sure of how to do a look with it yet….
I’ll definitely consider it! Thanks!
Ooh! I definitely NEED that eye pencil. It looks gorgeous!
ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL EYE MAKEUP-
This is super pretty!
I love it when you do eye looks, they always come out so perfect and gives me inspiration, it helps me to choose what to pair together as you always have some amazing colour combinations, can you please start doing more looks…i think ive been through almost everything you already have to offer (hehe long standing fan here….)
Thank you, Hannah! 😀
Christine, I like the face pictures better when they were a little further and I could see your whole head!
Unfortunately, I wasn’t intending to share this look – but so many requested it, I had to make do with the photos I had 🙂
gorgeous! I think I need this eyeshadow
Totally lovely Christine. I am for sure going to try this look out. You rock it! 🙂
very beautiful – really suits you!
That looks stunning! I love the purple ^_^
