Look: Orange & Brown

Look:  Orange & Browns

This was the first look I did to test drive MAC’s new long-wearing eyeshadows.

You will need the following…

For eyes, start by laying down your eyeshadow primer all over the lid and until the brow.  Apply One to Watch eyeshadow on the lower two-thirds of the lid with the 239.  In the crease, gently brush Hot Paprika eyeshadow with the 222.  Above the crease, apply Lie Low eyeshadow and diffuse upwards.

For face, apply Matchmaster all over face with the 193.  Lightly dust on illuminator with the 165 or 188 on cheek bones.  Set with Les Violettes with the 134.

For lips, apply Driven by Love onto lips.

You’re so pretty, Christine! I’m really digging the eyeshadows (not too orange to try myself) and the rest of your face is just flawless.

This is so beautiful! I love the subtle transition from the orange shadow to the deep rust color on the eyes. It reminds me a lot of a look I created recently inspired from Fall :).

I am -loving- warm oranges recently. I’m using The Balm’s Mischievous Marissa from theBalm pretty much everyday.

Must be fall in the air. You look gorgeous!

You look adorable and your complexion is flawless. I love how you paired those orange eyes with red lips, it’s not an expected choice but it works very well! I enjoy your looks so much. =)

Most likely – I’m trying to find a way to wear it for the whole day without it being so painfully embarrassing to wear (it’s too dry for my skin type).

Very nice! The eyes are perfect with red lips. =D <3

I have to ask though, do you have any plans to review the Guerlain Les Voilettes Mineral Powder? I've noticed you use it quite a bit for your look posts, yet I don't think I've seen a review yet.

I don’t know how did you to make you look pretier and pretier, so beautiful!

I’m so in love with this look, such amazing and breathtaking. Eyes are so perfect and not too much to match with red lips.

And your skin! SO glowing! and flawless! You make me wanna check out all those products used if they’re possible to give me such brilliant finish like this!

Thank you for sharing! <3

Christine I haven’t commented in months and months but I’ve stayed loyal to your wonderful site! 🙂 just wanted to say you look absolutely stunning in these pics and I especially love the soft orange/brown combo. Best of luck with everything!

Gorgeous look, Christine. I’m loving the oranges and coppers so this is something i’ll definitely try out!

The skin looks flawless btw, would you credit that more to the foundation or the mineral powder? Because whichever it is, i’m sold, haha! Or do you just have awesome skin?

Oh, bummer! I have fairly dry skin so that might not be the best investment for me.

And If that’s was flaws looks like accentuated on you, then girl, i’m jealous! Haha.

I am loving this look on you. I applaud your use of colour on two areas by maintaining two focal points. You have the skill of colour theory to know how to create balance. For my face, I am still trying to venture out. This looks for example I would consider for my face to be a lot a makeup. I know it isn’t, but because the intensity of colour is so high it makes my timid mindset think “heavy makeup” you know??

If I try a few looks and email them to you privately will you tell me if my face structure can pull them off as brilliantly as yours? I purchase tonnes of high end cosmetics in daring colours but I just don’t apply them fabulous ways. I’m ready to step outside my makeup box…. lol

Thanks for your continued inspiration with temptalia

I bought all, 3, of these MAC longwearing eyeshadows because of your beautiful photos!!
Quick question — is the UD eyeliner LUCKY? I’d like to add the correct color to my Sephora order. 🙂
