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…

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.

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!

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, 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

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!)

Gorgeous!!

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
