Sunset Eyeshadow Makeup Look

Hello Beautiful!

This past weekend my family and I went to Marshall’s to pick up some beauty blenders for my makeup kit. I always like to browse the makeup section while I’m there to see if I find any gems.

This was my lucky day! I scored some #MORPHExJaclynHill palettes for $7.99!!! I was super stoked! I also got a few MAC lipsticks for $7.99 each.

The first Morphe palette I used was Ring the Alarm. It’s a beautiful rich red and brown, warm toned palette. Right up my alley!

I died when I saw this! It even comes with a mirror inside which is a huge plus!

Here’s a pic of the makeup look I created with it and a list of all the products at I used is below.

So… If you’re ever at a Marshall’s make sure you do a quick check in the makeup section. You might find some steals!

Lots of love, Cristina 😘

St. Patrick’s Day Makeup look {Makeup by Cristina Underwood}

Hello Beauties!

These past few weeks have flown by! I can’t believe we’re in March already. One of my favorite things about this month is our days get “longer” because of daylight savings time. So for me this simply means I have more time to do makeup in natural lighting 😉

Today I’m bringing to you a simple and festive eye makeup look that I did using all Mary Kay products. If you don’t have these products, you can always substitute other colors that are similar to the ones I listed. This look could be worn on any random day of the week, however I’m bringing it to you for St. Patrick’s Day. Follow the steps below to achieve this look.


Step 1: Prime the eye using your favorite primer. I used Mary Kay Eye primer.
Step 2: Highlight the brow using any white shimmery eyeshadow. I used Crystalline by Mary Kay.
Step 3: Apply a light green color to the inner part of the lid. I used Lime by Mary Kay.
Step 4: Apply a darker green starting from the center of the lid going towards the outer lid. I used  Emerald by Mary Kay.
Step 5: Blend a light to medium brown in the crease (or you could intensify the look
by using a very dark brown). I used Chocolate Kiss by Mary Kay.
Step 6: To add depth, lightly pat on a black eyeshadow to the outer V of the eye. I used Coal by Mary Kay.
Step 7: Using your favorite liquid liner (or you could use a gel liner) line the upper lash line with a
small wing at the end. I used Mary Kay Liquid Eyeliner in Black.
Step 8: Line the water line with a deep green eyeliner. I used Mary Kay eyeliner in Rich Jade.
Step 9: Take that same {Emerald} eyeshadow you used in step 4 and with a smudger brush, pat and blend the
eyeshadow onto the lower lash line as close to the waterline as possible.
Step 10: Apply two coats of your favorite mascara. I used Mary Kay Ultimate mascara in black.

That completes the look! It may seem like a lot of steps, but most of it is applying eyeshadow.

I hope you find this information helpful and feel free to tag me on Instagram or Twitter @MkUpByCristina so I can see your recreation of this look 🙂

Stay tuned for my next post. It should be a nail art to go with our St. Patrick’s Day theme! Till then Laugh often & Love always!!
