Summer Look: Mix & Match with Urban Decay & MAC

Mix & Match with Urban Decay & MAC

Here’s a look I did test-driving NARS’ new eyeshadow base (got a sample of it with a recent Sephora order) and new Urban Decay eyeshadows.  Plus, even though I still don’t feel like Lazy Day is a must-have (and I really thought it was going to be higher on the sell out list than it appears to be), it looks super lovely with Splashing.

How’s your Wednesday going so far?  What are you having for lunch? (Or what did you have?)

You will need the following…

For eyes, start by applying Smudgeproof base as your eyeshadow base all over the eye area with the 249. Using the 239, apply Free Love eyeshadow on the inner half of the lid. Lightly blend Woodstock eyeshadow on the outer half of the lid with the 239. Next, apply Psychedelic Sister eyeshadow into the crease with the 226, lightly blending outwards and upwards to fade to the brow bone. With the 239, apply Woodstock eyeshadow into the lower crease and then blended towards the outer corner and lid. Blend Nylon eyeshadow with the crease shade and highlight the brow bone. Bring everything together by applying Honey eyeliner on the lower lash line and Free Love eyeshadow lightly patted below the lower lash line with the 219 brush. Finish by sweeping lashes with Plushlash mascara.

For cheeks, apply #6 aqua cream on the apples of the cheeks and sweep upwards towards the temple with the 116. Highlight softly with Sugarbomb with the 165 or 131.

For lips, apply Lazy Days lipstick first, and then layer Splashing lipglass for a complementing lip.

gorgeous look! and i love the lippie combo! i agree lazy day is dupeable but i want to get it over angel as there is no frostiness 🙂

shontay Avatar

Very pretty, Christine!
I was never interested in putting the MUFE aqua cream on my lips or cheeks. You’ve changed my mind.

and Oooh, I am sooo looking forward to your review of that Nars primer. Oh and don’t forget that Korres liner! LOL

Cynthia Avatar

Great look. I LOVE the lips! I was going to get Lazy Day, but am looking at Angel instead, as it’s permanent, and I won’t have to worry about backups. I am definitely getting Splashing though, maybe even 2! Do you think Splashing on top of Angel will look similar?

Diana G Avatar

This is a really nice look Christine. I can’t wait to hear what you think about the NARS eyeshadow base. Also, what do you use to fill in your brow?

kristie Avatar’re killing me! I was iffy on getting Splashing and now I see this gorgeous look on you. Arrgh it’s back on the list!

Natalie Avatar

Splashing is a really great summer color. I am falling in love with the UD liner, its a really pretty colour for the waterline/lower lashline for summer.

Celeste Avatar

i love how you have color on your eyes, cheeks, and lips but it doesnt look tacky. this is a beautiful look and i love the lip. i already have the lipglass but i need lazy days!

Caroline Avatar

Wow that is such a pretty eye look! Although I think I might use some eyeliner on the upper lashline. But I like this look since it’s colourfull, but still pretty wearable.

Nadine Avatar

OMGOMGOMG! So pretty! I use pink & purple together, but never with melon! That is SO GORG! If I wasn’t at home sick I’d try that right now!

CeeBee Avatar

Gorgeous! Very summery indeed!

I might have a go at this but I think I’ll use a slightly peachier or more coral blush…loving the lip combo! Looks similar to Chantecaille’s Petunia lipstick topped Dior Addict gloss in Empire Pink that I had on yesterday! 🙂

SiaM Avatar

I like this one a lot!!!!!!!!The transition of the colors is beautiful and you look so gorgeous…I have to say I didn’t wear pink lips until I saw one of your looks with pale pink/lilac lips and I am hooked with the pink lips….This lips look just perfect =) ♥x♥x♥x♥

Tatyana Avatar

I love all of the products that you used individually, but I am not feeling this combo at all. Tooooo pink, I mean, tooooo pink, like a cupcake or something.

Wendy M. Avatar

Looks so pretty Christine!
Almost like at dusk. 🙂

I love how Lazy Days and Splashing look!
But I think they’d look pale on my NC35 skin. 🙁

Lauren Avatar

cute look! really bright and perfect for spring/summer 🙂

have you done a review on the nars smudgeproof eyeshadow base? i’d really like to know how you like it compared to soft ochre paint pot and UDPP.

Jazz Avatar

yep im gonna do my version of this for my grad party on Saturday … will definitely be getting that pink from urban decay via sephora tomorrow

Joanna Avatar

I LOVE THISS SOOOO MUCH. i think this is one of my new favorite looks. just love how the gold liner looks on you. i need to get that eyeliner!
by the way, what is the best really really really dark black eyeliner that doesn’t smudge that you know? all of the ones i have seem to smudge easily. and i’ve been looking for a really black one.
thankss <3

Caryn Avatar

gorgeous look!! How does Lazy Day compare to California Dreamin’? I didn’t get a chance to get my hands on Cali Dreamin and was hoping it was similar enough to calm down my obsessive collecting haha.

Amy Avatar

I always think that Sugarbomb looks great on you 🙂 I’m excited to try out that lip combo for myself.. I’m planning on getting both that lipstick and the lipglass 🙂

Jody Avatar

I’m so glad you did this look! When I saw your swatches in the previous post I knew I would love Woodstock and Freelove.
The three together are POW! Gorgeous. I love how Woodstock looks even with your eyes open.
MUST GET WOODSTOCK! (and Free Love, and Aquarius, and… oy vay)
Love Honey with it.
I am going to have to wear this tomorrow, with some subs I have.

rashmi Avatar

wow sweetie looking so tempting ( m saying what ur boy wanted to say)

what did he had in desert today????
do tell me will wait for ur reply
great job as usual
m lucky to bought the lipstick n lipgloss

Rosie Avatar

This is so pretty and like a nice toned down bright look. I’m totally jonesing for the new UD eyeshadows but have to wait for a real paycheck next month :(. That peach e/s is to die for!

nicola Avatar

thats a great look, really girlie! my lips are so red whenever i put pink on them it looks so wrong, but i bet a tinted lipbalm like the toon tints ones would work though? (like the daizy one)

Petra Avatar

Wow, Christine, as a fellow warm toned girl, that lipcombo looks GORGEOUS on You… I can’t stop looking at it! Love the whole look on You, btw, but that lipcolour, it takes it to another level! 🙂
I’m so happy I bought Lazy Day, for some reason I find I can pull it off really easily, which is pretty hard for me (sadly, because I adore baby pinks).

Christine Avatar

Thanks a lot, Petra! I almost used Fun Bathing, because it’s the only lipstick I haven’t used in a look (and I think it would be fine in the look), but SO glad I did Thrills instead. I gotta wear the crap out of it before it’s too old to wear any more, LOL.

So happy about Lazy Day for you!

Lizet Luna Avatar

Lights always pretty, this harmony of colors makes you look so good!
Just wow =)

It is a shame that Mexico was not able to get UD =( only on the black market and exorbitant prices.
