Look: Peach & Smoky Purples for Autumn

Here’s a quick look for fall that I put together to go out to dinner with my parents and boyfriend (for my birthday). It’s pretty simple, and surprisingly, I used all permanent products (without trying–that’s an accomplishment!). πŸ™‚ Hope your Wednesday is off to a fantastic start! Halfway through the week — yay!

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Soft Ochre paint pot (neutral beige base), Melon pigment (peachy-pink), Gleam eyeshadow (peachy-pink), Cranberry eyeshadow (berry-wine), Fig. 1 eyeshadow (eggplant), Graphology eyeshadow (deep purple-black), Ricepaper eyeshadow (highlighter), Smolder eye kohl (black), Urban Decay El Dorado 24/7 Liner (gold), Zoom Fast Lash mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Plum Foolery blush (berry)
  • Lips: Guerlain Gracia Lipstick (muted berry), Chanel Spark glossimer (coppery berry)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 226 (fluffy crease brush), 219 (pointed crease brush), 214 (smudge brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: N/A

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 with the 249. With the 239, apply Melon pigment with water-based mixing medium on the lower lid. On the inner lid, pack Gleam eyeshadow on using the 239. Apply Cranberry eyeshadow to the outer portions of the lid. Darken crease with Fig. 1 eyeshadow using the 226, then deepen with Graphology eyeshadow with the 219. Sweep Ricepaper eyeshadow underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with Urban Decay El Dorado Liner on lower lash line, and Smolder eye kohl on the lower waterline using the 209. Apply Zoom Fast Lash mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Plum Foolery blush using the 129. Apply Guerlain Gracia lipstick to lips, and then top with Chanel Spark glossimer for color and shine.

hey looking gorgeous
pleaseeee tell if i wanna buy only one paint pot which colour i should go for , i usually like pinks and peach
please tell me christine i will be waiting for ur reply

omg, I’m loving this look! Last night I did one with purples and greys (pandamonium, shadowy lady, push the edge, fertile and vex). HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! πŸ™‚

I’ve just bought Melon pigment on eBay, so will try this look once I have it. It’s gorgeous. I also got El Dorado in the 24/7 travel set, so watch this space, lol!

You look so pretty, and the eyes are elegant and luminous. Elegant yet simple. You could’ve gone for a lighter or darker lip and still would’ve looked great.

Thank you so much, Ali! πŸ™‚

It’s definitely a nice look that can work with either a light or dark lip! (Which is rare!)

I doubt any of you are are old enough to remember Ultima Make up.. but they had a beautiful peach/purple combo eye shadow that I still mourn and lust after.

This look is the closest thing I have seen since they went out of business and trust me I have been looking for YEARS! Thank you thank you thank you!!

Im 31!! I remember them as a kid!! They had Black packaging and I was always draw to their counters as a kid!! Was it like Ultima 2 or something like that???

wow. i love the eyes!!! im going to try to recreate it but with a nude lip just so more focus would be on the amazing eyes. i really hope you do a video tutorial on this one

Ooh! LOVES IT, Christine! Another pretty look. & Thank you so much because I’ve been wanting to snag Cranberry e/s, but have been hesitant because I had no clue how to use it. But this look, I’m hoping to try once I get that e/s. [:

gorgeous! one of my fave looks that you’ve done. now only if i can re-create it. I’m still a newbie at the whole eyeshadow application thing.

So pretty! I *need* to get that El Dorado liner . . . Honey is too cool for me, but I wish that they offered El Dorado in a full size without the set. Guess I’ll just have to order all of the 24/7 sets this holiday πŸ™‚

I have got to have these colors. They are a great combo. I usually like/do browns/taupes and purlples and this is a new twist. Now I have to find me some money!

As always, you pull together some beautiful FUN looks. This is my fav. so far. The blending is flawless, the color’s are perfect together, they look fab on YOU and YES, all PERMANENT!!! I also gotta show this love cuz these colors are my “go to” cuz of my green peepers! LUVVVVSSSS it!!!

The color combination is really beautiful and it flatters you tremendously! I also love that you haven’t taken your crease color up as far as you normally do… it really compliments your beautiful eyes!

This is such a stunning look for fall. I wouldn’t have thought to pair peach and purple but they look great together. Great job Christine!

I really love your looks but I really think you should consider another mascara because this one makes your eye lashes look really poor unfortunately πŸ™

Otherwise – look is really beautiful! πŸ™‚

I wore it today, and my BF who really pretty much never comments on my makeup did a double take and said he liked it…Thanks Christine πŸ™‚

This look makes me even more excited about getting my 24.7 super stash for x-mas. Also it looks like Graphology may have been discontinued because i cannot seem to find it on mac’s website. So i was wondering if u knew of a good dupe? Thanks

You’ll love it!! πŸ™‚

I don’t have a good dupe for it, but it’s this dark purple that’s not quite black, but very dark. You could probably just lightly dab a black shadow in to replace it!

EEPS!!!!! This is gorgeous!!!! I’ve been out of commission with my internet so i’m just catching up on the last 3 months, and THIS is BEAUTIFUL!! One of your best looks so far, IMO. I will be trying this out on myself (NC20) so hopefully it doesn’t look clownish on me!!
