Look: Pop of Color for Spring
Look: Pop of Color for Spring
This was a recent look I used to test out the wear of several products–the newer MAC eyeshadow quad (because it had a very stubborn shade in it), MAC’s Pearlglide Intense Eyeliner (because it was worth re-testing), and Becca Damselfly (had not tested the wear before). I haven’t worn either the lipstick or gloss on its own, so I haven’t finished testing either of those, but I thought they might work well with this look so at least I could get a lip swatch out of it!
You will need the following…
- Eyes: NARS Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Base (eyeshadow primer), MAC Colour Eyeshadow Quad (yellow, dark blue, gray, beige), MAC Undercurrent Pearlglide Intense Eyeliner (teal), Hourglass Film Noir Mascara (black)
- Face: Chanel Vitalumiere (B30), Guerlain Les Voilettes Mineral Powder (03), Becca Damselfly Mineral Blush (orange-coral)
- Lips: Make Up For Ever Folk Rouge Artist Natural (coral), Le Metier de Beaute Orange Juiced Sheer Brilliance Lipgloss (sheer tangerine)
For eyes, I applied a light layer of NARS Smudgeproof on the lid as an eyeshadow primer from lash line to brow bone with a firm, flat brush. First, I applied Self-Serve to the crease with a pencil brush and used a blending brush to attempt to diffuse the color. Next, I applied Colour Added all over the lid with a fluffy eyeshadow brush. I used another pencil brush to apply Pre-packaged to the outer corner and into the deep crease. To highlight the brow bone, I used Laudry Daze applied and blended with a fluffy blending brush. On the lower lash line, I applied MAC Undercurrent and then patted Colour Added on the inner half of the lash line and Pre-packaged on the outer half of the lash line. Finally, I applied a coat of Hourglass Film Noir to lengthen and thicken lashes.
For face, I applied Chanel Vitalumiere with a circular foundation brush. I blended Becca Damselfly onto cheeks with a dense blush brush and set with Guerlain Les Voilettes. For lips, I applied Make Up For Ever Folk and layered Le Metier de Beaute Orange Juiced on top.

Love it 🙂 ♥
i LOVE this look! the colors are too pretty
I’m a fan of your brows! I have two totally different brows, and no amount of fixing helps; it just makes matters worse. LOL.
Anyway, love this look. Your blue, green, and/or yellow looks are always my favorite! They just look so good on you!
Aww! There are differences between the two of mine that I can never seem to correct either!
Thank you, Miss J!
This looks lovely! You always carry yellows so effortlessly!
Thanks so much!
Lovely look, I really like the pop of bright yellow and the gorgeous greens and blues!
Very pretty Christine!
Gorgeous look, Christine! These colors look amazing on you!
Thank you!! 🙂
I really really love this look. It’s different without being TOO out there 🙂
Yay! Thanks, Cat!
what is on your waterline? Undercurrent?
Yes – it’s written in the post! 🙂
So lovely! The blue and yellow eye looks fantastic with the coral lip. I have a couple of yellow shadows I’ve never worn, I think I’ll try a look similar to this, thank you for the inspiration Christine!
Thank you so much!
Gorgeous and totally eye-catching! Love the colours 🙂
You referred to using a pencil brush for this look and I don’t think I know what that is. Can you explain?
You wear colors so insanely well Christine, and in a very approachable way too. I’ve ALWAYS admired that about your looks!
Thank you, Sunny! That’s kind of who I am – I like wearing bright colors, but I want to do it in a more wearable way? I guess!
I need to do the same at home, I really love it. And it fits you so weel Christine ^^ Neutrals are pretty, but you wear really well stronger colors
Thank you, Aurore!
Gorgeous look!! I will be purchasing Added Colour Quad today to try out that look!
I was just looking at the January 2011’s peacocky look you had done and I really like how your look has changed – a bit lighter brows, a bit more maturity to your face (not to be taken in a bad way – I mean it as a compliment!)
Love this look – I agree, the bright colors always look so nice on you, I like them better than the neutrals. 🙂
Thank you, Yasemin!
Is there a Chanel Vitalumiere review on the way..? 🙂
Couldn’t say! 🙂
Do you know if the Le Metier de Beaute gloss in Orange Juiced is available yet?
It should be! It was released during winter!
I actually really like that look. I think I did something similar once. 🙂
This looks amazing!! Great blending and color selection!!
I love it.. I do makeup like this all the time but for some reason yellow and orange i can’t think of how to wear it. and like a eye shadow palette i can come up with colors but blue. How do you decided what colors without it looking like the 80s or just stupid. lol
Really nice!! And Très cool!
Looks great, I love how you have applied the colour. Really brings out the colour in your eyes. I’m not sure I would be game to wear that colour scheme.
