    >My Name is Andrea T., I live in Brazil, you can contact me through email: I would wear a very springy make up, with nude pink lips, pale lilac eye shadow and neutral blush. No foundation, just a tinted moisturizer.

    4) I would most definitely be rocking some Mutiny Pigment with my HiP Midnight Blue gel liner to bring out the blue on that bad boy :D


  • Reesemortensen says:


    My name is: Nora B.
    I am in: Spain
    Way to contact me:
    Make up i would wear:

    Foundation: Bobbi brown extra spf 25 tinted balm: alabaster
    Powder: Armani loose powder: 0
    Blush: Nars angelika with nars orgasm
    Highlighter: Nars copacabana and mac cream base in pearl

    Lids: Mac pigment in: white gold
    Crease: Mac eyeshadow: Red violet with coppering
    Browbone: Mac white frost
    Eyeliner: Bobbi brown black shimmer mauve
    Mascara: Bobbi brown no smudge

    Lipstick: Mac big bow
    Lipgloss: Bobbi brown glacier

    The eyes would have a clear lid, playing up the colors in the crease, a blend of matte pinked purple with a shimmery copper,since i see the scarf that way, like waves of purple/turquoise/copper. The eyeliner would define the eyes, still in the same mauve family, but not overdoing it by a bright eyeliner. The lips would be a sheer bright pink, with a silver lipgloss on top of it.

    The face would only be a tinted moisturizer with a healthy flush and lots of luminizer, since wearing a bright scarf, means to be casual and fresh at the same time.


  • Tamara says:

    >WOW how nice! A contest for all of us that are from every other part that’s not US! YAY!

    (1)Tamara M.

    (4)I’d go with something classy. Because when I see this scarf I think of the desert, all the colors you can find there, tho most of them are hidden to the normal viewer.

    Anyhow I’d use Limecrime’s Dragon scales for the main color, mixed it with still Limecrime’s mermaid and a bit of enchanted and for the bling I’d add a bit of sweetscents cactus blossom over all!

    A I’d add a bit of mascara and I’d shape my eyebrows with essence eyebrow shadow.

    Then I’d add a tiny bit of deborah’s blusher over the cheek bone and I’d be done.

  • Veronica says:

    4. I would have a neutral look to match the earth tones in the scarf. Its multicoloured and my blue eyes would look great with it. I would have my usual foundation from Everyday minerals with a matte blush. I would have neutral, matte colors around the eyes- eyeshadows that sculpt more than anything. I would also have a black eyeliner on my eyelid and loads of black mascara. To make the look even more dramatic, I would use my new, bright red lipstick from Nyx (Electra). Or maybe the nude lipstick from Lipstick queen- it really depends on my mood.

  • Emma says:

    >1) Emma C

    4) I would either wear a fairly neutral eye (think Mac Woodwinked with Copperplate in the crease) and soft pink lips (Mac Angel) in order to not detract from the gorgeousness of the scarf or…Mac aquavert on the lid, UD hotpants in the crease and UD shattered on the bottom lashline to go with the colours of the scarf and a nice neutral lip :o )

  • marta says:

    >1, name: Marta M.

  • Margie says:

    >Hallo Karla!

    My name is Margie, I am in Australia and I am shamisen on MUA.
    I would totally use that scarf as an excuse to buy Lipstick Queen Saint Rose because it would bring out the lovely pink and raspberry tones! Muha ha ha!

  • jocelyn says:

    >My name is Jocelyn L. I’m in Canada. please contact me through MUA (jopolyn) I would totally do a nude eye so I don’t clash with the colors of the scarf and do a peachy blush color to bring out the orange tones.


  • faerie_bel says:

    >My name is Belinda C, I am in Australia and you can contact me via MUA under stargazer_LiLy. I would do a very nude eye with thick black lashes using Bourjois Volume Clubbing Mascara. Then I would do a soft apricot blush with Laura Mercier Orange Blossom and a peach lip with Clinique’s Blushing Coral lipstick.

  • Shayla says:

    >Shayla D. from Canada, and you can reach me on Twitter at

    The makeup I’d wear with this? Hmm…I’d probably try to pull the purples out of it, and do Beautiful Iris shadow on the inner third of the lid, Violet pigment on the middle third, Grape pigment on the outer third, Shroom as a highlight (or Vanilla), and Urban Decay Lust liner on the lower lash line.

    I loves me my purples! (and pretty scarves). Thanks for the giveaway!

  • littleinkpot says:

    >Amanda B
    littleinkpot (Twitter)
    I would wear a realy soft, neutral look with some of the warm terracotta colours (MAC Tempting or similar) from the scarf. Let the scarf do the talking!

    So great that there’s a competition for non-US citizens, we really miss out. Woop!

  • N. says:

    >Naomi B
    i Would wear a bold red lip, such as MAC’s russian red, with a minimal eye- black eyeliner and mascara. I would finish with an illuminating powder on the apples of my cheeks- and voila!

  • bpoloh says:

    >1 Name Beatriz P.
    2 Country Spain

    4 I will use a very like meke up due to the vivid colar the scarf has. Nude lips and a base eye shadown like bone BB eyeshadow.

  • Ziggy says:


    1) Zic-Yun C.
    2) Hong Kong
    3) MUA (ziggy_rin)
    4) I’d wear lighter colours as the scarf is so colourful – ie. pale pink e/s with a bit of mint green, a light shimmery pinky peach blush like MAC Beauty Powder Blush in Shy Beauty and YSL’s gloss in 11. I’d probably line my eyes with fluidline in graphic brown and top it off with mascara.

  • PatriciaS says:

    >Hi Karla!, What an awesome thing to do for us international ladies :)

    The scarf is absolutely stunning and of course would be the time for me to wear it as its almost winter here :)

    a) Patricia S
    b) Australia

    How would I wear this scarf? as often as possible! its gorgeous!

    I’m not a wallflower and nudes really don’t work for me – so I’d go all out glam especially since its almost winter, nothing but burgundy lips for me, a slash of the sexiest silver taupe I’ve got, thin black liner and lashings of black mascara.

    Thankfully for everyone I won’t be making duplicate entries, but thank you for thinking of us ladies outside the US, what a wonderful thing to do!

    PS: Did I mention I really love that scarf :) Luv ya.

  • Jasmine says:

    >My name is Jasmine W. and I'm your lovely reader representing Hong Kong =) There are lots of ways to wear makeup with this colourful scarf. On plain days I'd just slick some gloss over my eyes, a coat of mascara, a bit of bronzer or rosy blush, and use a brownish pink lip tint or matte lipstick. Or I can pull a Matthew Williamson for H&M look and go tribal, with 2-3 coats of mascara, turquoise eyeshadow and a nude-ish lip to go with the heavy eyes. + Bronzer, if I'm going for that very ethnic summer look :) You can contact me on email at Love your blog, cheerio!

  • MB in ITALY! says:

    >1) Margot
    2) Bella Italy
    3) Via Facebook or Google Blogger site
    4) I’d figure out how to wear the ENTIRE Chanel Spring 2009 collection. I want to wear the scarf, not become it! A girl can NEVER be too fabulous!

    (2) what country are you in? Denmark
    (3) a way to contact you (email, Facebook, Twitter, anything!): jinnzor AT gmail DOT com
    (4) What makeup would you wear with your new scarf? Pastels definitely! I think I’d go for the Guerlain spring palette that I haven’t used yet. Maybe purple eyeliner. Peachy pink cheeks and a pinkish nude lip.

  • LynG says:

    >Hi Karla! I just want to let you know how helpful your blog is to me, as there are no counters in my city and I have to rely on kind friends who are travelling to buy makeup for me :D

    (1) Caroline G.
    (2) Philippines
    (4) I love the colors in the scarf! I would go for bronze and gold eyeshadows, turquoise pencil eyeliner on my top lashlines, bronzer on the cheeks and caramel lips.

  • Nat says:

    >a) Nathalie W.
    b) France
    c) walasss[at]orange[dot]fr
    d) face: simply some loose powder for a fresh, simple and youthful appearance, some warm and sheer blush (like “Peaches” by Mac), golden highlights on cheeks (like “Urban Lustre” by ck Clavin Klein)

    eyes: mostly golden (“Goldmine” by Mac), with Mac Blue Brown pigment on the lid just over the lashes, black khôl around the eyes, False eyelashes style mascara for doll eyes. Eyes would really remind the scarf – my eyes being green, no need to add some.

    lips: something ultra soft, warm nude and transparent like a lipgelée in “Jellybabe”.

  • Melia says:

    >1) Kalli M
    2) Greece
    4) I would wear my favourite eyeshadow of all time, MAC Da Bing with Swimming on the outer V, Urban Decay “Covet” eyeliner, with “Lucky” on the waterline. Tons of my favourite mascara, Art Deco “All in One Mascara”. For blush, I would use Stila Convertible in “Orchid”, blended out to a subtle flush and on my lips, Lancome Juicy Tube in “Simmer”.

  • miharakiri says:

    >Hi! My name is Nicolette W., and i’m from sunny Singapore. You can contact me at

    My style is very colourful, so even with such an eye-catching scarf, i would add a pop of colour in my makeup. Its spring after all!

    To keep things more fresh than garish, i would have some very light foundation, and leave my lids very nude. Instead, i would use a blend of bright blue, yellow and pink to rim my lower lids, with a light champagne or white to highlight my tear ducts. Not to forget very think black eyeliner and mascara to make my eyes pop.

    Add some soft pink blush, and a pinkish nude lip, and i’m all done. :)

  • nina says:

    >My name is Nina Y, I live in US, email:

  • madison817 says:

    >Jacqueline S. from Toronto, Canada
    madison_817 on twitter or comment on my blogspot ( whichevers easier!

    And because the scarf is so colorful, I’d keep my makeup pretty simple – maybe a gold-champagne colored lid (MAC e/s in femme fi, naked lunch, Wedge in crease), lots of eyeliner (MAC smolder eye kohl) and mascara (CG lash blast!) and a red lip!

  • MaryJoyce says:

    >Mary Joyce C.
    please contact me thru email

    I would wear my MAC bare slimshine with this scarf, since the scarf is so pretty and colorful, might as well make it the hilight of my look. Bare would definitely complement it. I would use MAC secret bpp as well for that barely flushed look.

  • Nicole says:

    >1) Nicole M
    2) UK
    4) I’d wear a simple, dewy look to complement the colours of the scarf: MLBB lip gloss, peachy cheeks and neutral eyes with just a bit of mascara. :)

  • harlot says:

    >Hi there!
    My name is Stephanie D and I live in France. You can reach me at
    I wouldn’t do anything to bold with this scarf, maybe woodwinked paired with sketch or a warm brown. Some peachy blush and/or the redhead MSF on the cheeks and a clear lipgloss.

  • Hannah H says:

    >Hello! I’m Hannah H and I’m from the Philippines. My email is The scarf itself has its own character, which means my makeup will look subtle and distinct, but will bring out the colors of the scarf perfectly. I’ll match it with my bobbi brown dark brown eyeliner with a pale goldish shimmery eyeshadow topped with mascara and a baby pink blush. I will use my NYX summerlovin lippie and some bobbi brown rose tint lip gloss. I will only put concealer and light foundation on problem areas for a more natural finish.
