8 Days of Christmas Eye Makeup Tutorials: Day 1


Merry Christmas Eve, everyone!

Christmas falls on a Sunday and the year ends on a Saturday this year, making the Christmas week a straight line on the calender.

You know, like this:

I love it when the 1st day of the month falls on a Monday, or Sunday, however my calendar looks for the year.  It just looks more complete, and makes counting that much easier, don’t you think?


I’ve been collecting a good stash of eye makeup looks and selected 8 of them to make a series of 8 Days of Christmas Eye Makeup to share with you guys! Hope you will find some inspiration for your own eye makeup!

Here’s the first look!


Eyeshadow Primer – UDPP Eden

Eyelid – MAC Stars ‘N’ Rockets, Kate Jewel Carat GD-1

Contour Area – MAC blush in Peaches

Outer V – NYX Trio Eyeshadow Dark Brown

Lower Lash Line – L’Oreal Color Infallible Eyeshadow Emerald Lame

Eyeliner – Pupa Multiplay Triple Purpose Eye Pencil 07 I love that this forest green eye pencil can be smudged out to look such a sweet lavender!

Eyelash Primer – Shiseido Nourishing Mascara Base

Mascara – Lancome Oscillation Vibrating Infinite Powermascara

Eyebrow – NYX Auto Eyebrow Pencil EP05 Dark Brown


Face Primer – Monistat Chafing Relief Powder-gel

Foundation – Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation 52

Blush – Canmake Cream Blush Sweet Apricot


Lip Balm – Estee Lauder Lip Conditioner SPF 15

Lipstick – Revlon Colorburst in Blush

I really wanted to put up a gold eye makeup look as the first look, but I thought it’s too much gold to take in considering the previous 2 posts were very much gold-infused already – Gold eyeshadow and Gold-themed party.

The next one’s gonna be a gold look though! 😀

Oh, and why 8 days, you ask? I wanted to do a 12 days series, but it’s gonna stretch into 2012 and would kinda have lost it Christmas-y mood by then.

About Bun Bun

Hello! My name is Juli and Bun Bun is my alter-ego. I blog to share my love for makeup, how to apply it, and what works or what doesn’t work, all from an Asian perspective.

My first makeup product was a shimmery light blue lipstick which I proudly wore all over my eyelids and lips. It cost $2.50, felt like $250, and made me feel like a million bucks.

    Merry Christmas Bun Bun! This is such a sweet look. Definitely something I can see myself wearing even when I’m with family (nobody is completely OK with me wearing makeup despite my advanced age lol. I think for them I’m still a 3-year-old brat)! Can’t believe your eyeliner is forest green either! Once smudged out it works so well with the purple!

    • Bun Bun

      Hey Sunny! Merry Christmas!!! I’m definitely not late coz there are 12 days of Christmas right? LOL!

      Yea, I totally understand what you mean! When I’m with family, I tend to drop the makeup intensity a notch. Don’t wanna invite unnecessary ‘tsk-tsks’ by erm, people who don’t appreciate freedom of art expression through makeup. HAHA!

    So pretty! Love your look . Blush for the contour area? Is there a reason why you use blush or just because you like the color?

    • Bun Bun

      Just because I love the color. Heh heh. This peach is just toooo orange and warm as blush for my skin, but it looks so gorgeous on the eye. I use pink eyeshadow as blush too!

    Happy Late Christmas! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas :)

    The subtle color looks very nice. I do something similar to work, just a little bolder with black contouring. I would have never believed that the eyeliner was a green. It works so well with the colors you chose.
