Spring Makeup: The Fresh Bloom of Spring with Purple, Green, & Blue

Spring Makeup: The Fresh Bloom of Spring with Purple, Green, & Blue

One of the most important things to do when doing a look with distinct colors is to be careful not to over-blend, which is really easy, because most of us put our noses to the mirror when we’re checking to make sure we did a good job on our makeup. It’s important to take a step (or three) back, look at our work, and judge it how others are going to see us. For instance, purple and green do not make a very pretty color when blended together, so it’s important to use a light hand when layering and just barely blend so there’s no line of demarcation.

You will need the following…

For eyes, start by applying Soft Ochre paint pot as your eyeshadow base all over the lid with the 249. Using the 239, apply Stars ‘n Rockets eyeshadow on the inner third of the eyelid. Next, apply Lucky Green eyeshadow on the middle third of the eyelid and lightly blend with the inner corner. Darken the outer third of the lid with Moon’s Reflection eyeshadow with the 239, gently brushing it into the lower crease. Next, define the crease by applying Electric Eel eyeshadow with the 226. Lightly tap and brush Gorgeous Gold eyeshadow directly above the crease to soften. To finish the eyeshadow look, sweep Femme-fi eyeshadow as a highlighter on the brow bone. Sweep Beautiful Iris eyeshadow along the inner tearduct and above the inner crease with the 217. Bring everything together by applying Electric eyeliner on the lower lash line and Blue Herizon liquidlast liner on upper lash line and then sweeping lashes withΒ  Exceptionnel mascara.

For cheeks, apply Sugarbomb to the apples of the cheeks and sweep upwards towards the temple with the 116.

For lips, apply Hue lipstick first, and then layer Lychee Luxe lipglass for a complementing lip.

Hmm, I looked, and it just looks like the lines I have on my lid… If you look at my other looks, you’ll see the same lines in the same position. They are more or less noticeable depending on the color/texture on top.

AH! Thank you thank you thank you! I always want to see you close your eyes on one of the full face shots – So I can see what it looks like from a distance πŸ™‚ This is a really groovy look! Good job! πŸ™‚

Christine – When you do these looks for the site, how often do you wear them out of the house? Is it your make-up for the day or are you just demonstrating ideas?

They usually don’t turn out very well, so I tend not to include them!

Very rarely, to be honest. It’s more about showing ideas or how certain products look used in a look!

Thanks! πŸ™‚ If I had someplace to go, I probably would have worn it out. I am way too lazy to get up early before school to do makeup, so I tend to do it after school is over… and well, my life is school and blogging, LOL.

I was pretty happy with it. It’s something I can’t remember doing before, and I just liked how it came together myself, so I am happy others liked it, too!

I never liked blue makeup, and don’t ask me why πŸ™‚ I just think is a such a strong color, I dunno how to express it, but when I see girls with blue makeup they attract my attention more than the others. :)Don’t get me wrong

Ooh, this is very interesting and unique, I like it. And it gives me a ton of ideas. BTW, a few days ago, you said you would post lip swatches of the Cremeblend Blushes, did you not post them yet, or did I just miss them?

Ah, I understand. I’m really looking forward to seeing them. I just ordered So Sweet, So Easy and Joie-De-Vivre, plus Pretty, Shift To Pink and and Lush & Bright Lipgelees. Thinking of maybe getting the other 2 blushes and the other Lipgelee. And a few other things…having my own credit card might be a bad thing. *hides*

Hi Christine. Thanks for the tip about stepping back to see how others will see our makeup. I like the eyes, terrific placement of colour, and not too much blending.

I absolutely LOVE this!! It’s adorable, not to mention really fun πŸ™‚ I have to admit, the violet addict that I am, Stars & Rockets is definitely my favourite colour out of the ones you used — but I like them all!

Also, I’m not sure if you meant to leave teal on your lashes, but I like it ^^

Thanks so much, Rae πŸ™‚ I love me some Stars ‘n’ Rockets.

LOL, I didn’t actually mean to. I’d normally apply liner prior to mascara, but I was undecided and threw it on at the last minute!

This is so cool. LOVE when you do funky color combos like this. My favorite part is the swoosh of Beautiful Iris around the corners – I need to get that color (I have Digit, but that’s a bit softer/paler, right?). Darn Liquidlasts, though – I have Aqualine, and it is one of my favorite *colors* for an eyeliner ever, but I have trouble keeping it off my lashes so I’ve avoided it. Now that I have Lancome Bi-facil, though, maybe I should be less afraid of that! πŸ™‚ And actually, it looks kind of pretty here, like an intentional highlight of blue mascara, haha!

Thank you< Daphne!

Try using a separate brush – I put mascara on before liner, which I wouldn't normally do (I added the liner at the last minute), but the 210 or 208 helps a lottttt.

Not my favourite on you, I’m sorry to say. Technically perfect, of course, but too garish for my taste. Blues do seem to match your eyecolour perfectly!

Love love love it! I want to try my hand at this look but the only product I have is the UD eyeliner. Time to shop my collection to find dupes πŸ˜€

this is really pretty christine, i dont think ive ever seen another make up guru do a look similar to this, it is beautiful, i want to wear it tomorrow, what would you say is a good dupe for moon’s reflection? tilt?

This is one of my favorite kinds of looks! Pink/yellow/blue is such an awesome combination but can be so hard to put together into a look (at least, that’s how it is for me! xD), but this is just perfect. I am so trying this!

The lips also look gorgeous here. I would have thought to have done a more blue pink but the yellow pink/peach definitely works better. <333

Love it!

Thanks, Nora! I hope you give it a shot πŸ™‚

I think you could go lighter (same hue, but lighter) for a less intense look. I do think a really soft blue-pink could work, too. I always like more coral-y shades with golds, blues, and greens — I think that’s why I went for it!

Just the word spring brings joy to me then I saw this look, so perfectly blended and so pretty. I am not a rainbow eye girl, but this pastel creation is gorgeous. I am laying out all of my shadows tonight to create the look tomorrow morning. I LOVE IT!

Wow! I love this! It’s so pretty and colourful! I think it can be difficult to put different colours together sometimes, so I love the way the colours look distinct but still blended in together nicely.

Hi Cristine:
I am very pleased this look really is wonderful as is this combo of vibrant colors, all your work is so motivating, =)
You look wonderful darling …
and I love it when I write at least it’s a way to stay close to your artist =)

Of course I have registered the newsletter that publish … I hope to win with MAC, as the price in Mexico is quite expensive, and even more import taxes = (

Happy week =) and thanks for your hobby we enjoy many more people than you imagine. =)

Thank you so much, Lizet Luna πŸ™‚ You’re too sweet! I am so happy you enjoy the site and good luck in the giveaway!

Hey Christine! I copied the look and I think it turned out great! πŸ™‚ How do I post a pic so that I can sure what I came up with? Thanks! πŸ™‚
