Looks – Oh, So Simple! Two shadows — Ricepaper and Espresso

It’s too bad the pictures didn’t do this justice, because it DID come out really nice in person. Just really subtle and softly smoky.  I wanted something super quick and simple, but I wanted something that was noticeable.

I used Ricepaper eyeshadow all over lid, Espresso eyeshadow in outer crease and corner of lid, and Ricepaper eyeshadow above crease. I wore Margin blush on cheeks with Sculpt sculpting powder to contour. I had Gentle Coral tinted lip conditioner on my lips.

i love these natural colours! playing with browns, highlighters – i have those e/s because of your smokey brown look from way back.

thanks christine. another it once again!

Thanks! Ricepaper is one of my favorite lid colors just to “wake up” the eyes a touch, and I thought I’d try some Espresso in it (which I use in my brows). It turned into a pretty shade of gray-brown.

How pretty! I always use Shroom and Charcoal Brown and Patina for this look, but I gotta get into more looks with Ricepaper. It looks a lot more yellow on me, I think.

Pretty!…I’m going to try Ricepaper with Charcoal Brown. I did a simple look today too…Charcoal Brown, Tempting, and Gingersoft. I’ll send pics if I remember 🙂 Maybe it’s a browns day!

You look beautiful as always. I still can’t get over how perfect you always look. Not fair.

I’m just curious… what are your thoughts on the N collection? Also, could you post an updated collections post? Your last one was from Sept 2007. Just curious… hopefully not being annoying.

Keep being beautiful!

Thanks, Anna! Awww, I hardly think that’s me, but I appreciate the compliment 🙂

I did like the N Collection, just because I felt like it was a surprisingly nice line of nudes that were both unique and easy to use.

I’ll try to get an update going sometime, maybe early March when I’m on spring break!

I love this look its something i would wear to school.Did you use mascara, and if so is it black? I think your eyelashes look natural yet made up, gorgeous as always!!

What a coincidence! I actually did this look a few days ago but I paired it with a much darker lippie 🙂 I love looks that use only a few products! I hope you can do more in the future!

Hey Cristine,

I know ,i know,u luvvvvvvvvv ricepaper,and atlast u found nice shade to match it with and sent ur post in ur website,.Lol i was waiting for so long for something like this which u almost wear as a highlghter in almost every makeup look…u look very happy i can also c that through ur Million Dollars Smile :)))


I did this look yesterday only I wanted less shading, so I used Patina with Ricepaper and then I winged some black liner out. I was stunning, if I do say so myself. 😉
