Look:  Neutral Eyes + Vampy Lip

Look:  Neutral Eyes + Vampy Lip

And the third look I did to test out MAC’s new Pro Longwear eyeshadows! 🙂  I don’t know what’s going on this week, but I’m already exhausted!  Can you believe it’s already Wednesday?

You will need the following…

For eyes, start by laying down your eyeshadow primer all over the lid and until the brow.  Apply Carefree eyeshadow on the lower two-thirds of the lid with the 239.  In the crease, gently brush Legendary Black eyeshadow with the 222 and diffuse above the crease.  Apply Make Your Mark eyeshadow in the outer corner and lid to add warmth with the 239.  Use Black Black eyeliner on the lower lash lin, then soften with Carefree eyeshadow.  Finish lashes with Film Noir mascara.

For face, apply Matchmaster all over face with the 193.  Add color to the cheeks by gently dusting Natural blush near apples and blended out towards temples with the 116.  Lightly dust on illuminator with the 165 or 188 on cheek bones.  Set with Les Violettes with the 134.

For lips, apply Soulfully Rich onto lips.

gorgeous all around, you look luminous and the lipcreme suits you so well. incidentally, i am super-duper impressed with the mascara! i think i’ll pick up a sample of it next time i’m at sephora!

Open (and honest) letter to Temptalia: All your looks are the same. We get the neutral/no eyeliner thing. You have boxes and boxes and boxes of high-end makeup and brushes: use them! Your just missing the mark here, and I think that was apparent with you uploading looks on your YouTube. You should have more opportunities for your readers to submit their looks rather than just once or twice a year; it would showcase people who have skills and have a love for makeup (AND your website) rather than beat a dead horse with your typical looks.

I can’t wear upper lash liner, which is why I don’t wear eyeliner on the upper lash line! So sorry – it causes my eyes to swell up – I mean, I do try it sometimes and just suffer not being able to see the next day but I’ve come to the point where it’s not worth it. Thanks for your suggestions!

Christine’s looks are the same because she has her own techniques. She’s doing her makeup in a way that flatters HER face. If you want different looks and techniques, try Lisa Eldridge’s Youtube Channel.

I agree with Chris25.
Christine does her makeup in a way that flatters her own uniquely beautiful features.
For example, she stated that she *can’t* wear liner on her upper lids, because she’ll have a reaction.
Even putting that factor aside, I think she’s one of the relatively few who can pull off the liner-on-bottom-only thing. Her eyes are large, dark, and beautifully shaped, with a thick lashline. She also has lovely bone structure, and a wide, pretty smile.
In short, she’s blessed with a great “canvas” on which to show off products.
That’s the main reason I come here; to see and read about new products, and get an idea of how they perform “on.” I have my own techniques, adapted for my own face.

this is a gorgeous look. can we see more of the lip color and of the finished whole face? it’s a bit hard to see at the tilted angle.

Christine, this is a beautiful look on you! I don’t have these colors, but I’m going to try and recreate this look in the morning for work.

I love me some vibrant eyes with a neutral lip, but the opposite tends to do just perfectly as well. Thanks for the inspiration! This look would do well for work!
