Summer Look with Wet 'n' Wild

Summer Look with Wet ‘n’ Wild

Another test look — Clarins Skin Illusion (the shade is too light but setting with Guerlain Les Violettes in #03 made it wearable for test purposes, at least), NYX Eyeshadow Base, Wet ‘n’ Wild Vanity Eyeshadow Palette, Physicians Formula Glow Pearls, and Guerlain Chant d’Aromes.

You will need the following…

  • Eyes:  NYX Eyeshadow Base (base), Wet ‘n’ Wild Vanity Eyeshadow Palette (shimmering beige, gold, bronze, beige, dark brown), span style=”color: #9d4b7b;”>Wet ‘n’ Wild Olive Color Icon Eyeliner (olive green), Hourglass Film Noir Mascara (black)
  • Face: Clarins Skin Illusion (108), Guerlain Les Violettes Mineral Powder (03)
  • Cheeks: Physicians Formula Light Bronze Pearl Mineral Glow Pearls (bronze)
  • Lips: Guerlain Chant d’Aromes (103) Rouge Automatique (rosy pink)
  • Brushes: 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 222 (fluffy crease brush), 184 (fan brush)

For eyes, start by applying NYX as your eyeshadow base all over the eye area with the 294.  Apply the shimmering beige eyeshadow to the inner tearduct with the 217.  Next, apply the gold eyeshadow just above the lid and in the crease with the 239.  Lightly blend the bronze eyeshadow into the crease with the 222, blending outwards, then layer with the dark brown eyeshadow.  Pat the beige eyeshadow lightly above the crease and highlight the brow bone with the 217.  Apply Stash liner on the lower lash line.  Finish by sweeping lashes with Film Noir mascara.

For cheeks, apply Light Bronze Pearl on the apples of the cheeks and pat towards the temple with the 184.

For lips, apply Chant d’Aromes lipstick for a complementing lip.

I just bought the Clarins Skin Illusion foundation the other day, after using samples for a week or 2. I love it – it is so light and natural. 108 is the shade I wanted but it’s not available in Canada (I had to go to the US to get that shade in the Everlasting formulation last year). Well, I got the lighter shade but what’s interesting is that it’s almost the same colour as the 108 in the Everlasting formula. While Skin Illusion does rub off easily (when I wipe my nose!), it applies beautifully – almost like a tinted moisturizer – and I really like it.

Looks pretty & simple! This reminds me that I need to purchase a new Stash liner. It was the first UD 24/7 liner I fell in love with. 🙂

I hope you’ll be reviewing the NYX and Wet ‘n Wild products…? Can’t wait.

This look is fantastic!! Especially at a fraction of the price of most cosmetics.

I wish there were more places to buy Wet N Wild around me. Wal-Mart seems to be the only place that carries it but it’s far. I remember when W&W was one of the more popular drugstore brands!

Okay so at first glance I read NYX as e.l.f (I have no idea why…. lol brain) and I was like, “whaaaa? Doesn’t e.l.f publish pictures of Christine without her permission?”

I got a little nervous there!

They used an image of my eye (with makeup on it) in their newsletter–even though I didn’t use e.l.f. products and they didn’t acknowledge, credit, or ask for permission to use it (because the newsletter was essentially advertising/marketing their products). It took about 8 weeks before I was able to get them to do anything about it (at that point, just an apology). But more recently, I had some readers email me about e.l.f. using two images of my eye on their website on a couple of their beauty tips. Businesses should know better and pay a couple bucks for stock images rather than just taking them off the internet without credit or permission!

I don’t know if this is the case with E.L.F., but many wordpress blogs have an automatic function that searches the web for images that match the text. You don’t know (often) where they come from, but they are presumed to be public access. If you have images of your eyes available publicly in this way, ELF has probably used the same program – and so would not be able to credit accordingly. (Besides, the model doesn’t get compensated for the re-use of photos. The photographer, as owner of the copyright, does.)

Christine Avatar

It’s E.L.F.’s responsibility to properly obtain photographs – they are a business. I’m both the model and photographer of the photo, so I own the rights to all my work. They’ve done twice – once in their newsletter, again on their website. After being confronted, they still have removed the images – and that’s an even bigger issue than failure to actually spend a few bucks for stock photography for your commercial endeavor.

oh, you look so pretty! why is this pic so different – good different? different camera angle? whatevet it is – you look pretty!

Bettina Avatar

I was gonna say the same thing about this pic, you shot it at a different angle and it shows more of you. I would agree that the lighting could have been better. ( I dabble in photography, so I know about being picky about light and I myself am very picky LOL) Sorry just had to join the comment party. 🙂 I love the look though, you inspire me to want to play with bronzes more. I always hated them when I was younger because I thought browns and bronzes were boring and “mom like” and because there was a certain group of girls when I was in high school that made browns a little scary….

Jayne Avatar

This is one of the most stunning looks of the more natural ones I’ve seen you post! I have to get this palette now, as in first thing tomorrow, to try to recreate it!

Maria Avatar

I love your look, natural but glowing!!! What’s your opinion on the Clarins Skin Illusion Foundation? I got a sample on a magazine last week and I liked it quite as much as to give it a pair of “purchasing thoughts”… Amazingly enough, the shade I was provided with was 111, which I expected to be much darker than my skintone, but it melted really well, not very yellow neither too rosy, and definitely not as if my face had spent more time at the beach than the rest of my body, and giving me also a bit of that “natural glow” that I see on your face… It would be quite interesting to see it on the foundation matrix…
