8 Days of Christmas Eye Makeup Tutorials: Day 2


Told ya it’s gonna be a gold look! Heh heh heh.

Wooohooooo!! It’s Christmas Day! What are you doing today? Going anywhere special?

Today’s look is very easy, I played down the rest of the eyeshadows to make the MAC Old Gold pigment stand out. It’s a very warm and classy look, nothing too extravagant that would frighten off little cousins – like these!

Here’re the products used to create this gold eye makeup look:


Eyeshadow Primer – UDPP Eden

Eyelid – MAC Old Gold pigment

Contour Area – MAC Satin Taupe

Outer V – Urban Decay Naked Palette Darkhorse

Highlight – MAC Shroom

Lower Lash Line – Sugaprill Pressed Eyeshadow Midori

I’ll be catching a movie with my cousins, and after that we’ll head for our grandmother’s place, to join our uncles and aunts. Nothing like a family get-together to spend Christmas! =D

A warm MERRY CHRISTMAS to you all! 😀

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.

    I love gold eyeshadow! In fact, I’m collecting them (the good ones at least) slowly on and off in the past year or so.

      YAY TO GOLD EYESHADOW!! Gold looks especially gorgeous for those with warm undertones.

      Today I wanted to get a gold eyeshadow from L’Oreal. You know, the limited edition for the L’Oreal Color Infallible collection. I was contemplating whether to get it, but a girl can never have enough gold, can she? Hoho. When I finally made up my mind to get it, the SA told me it was OOS! GAH!!! Now I’m even MORE determined to get it!

      • shusheshe

        The L’Oreal Color Infallible collection isn’t available in Taiwan yet…and I’ve been kicking myself for not picking them up when I was in Hong Kong a few weeks back. ORZ ORZ. Fortunately I made up for it by getting the Gorgio Armani Eyes to Kill ones which are utterly gorgeous!

        • Bun Bun

          Much more expensive, are they? ‘Not available yet’ means there’s still chance you’ll get it in Taiwan soon!

          • shusheshe

            Oh yes, much more expensive. And ‘yet’ in Taiwan means I might wait for another year until they show up. Revlon’s not a major drugstore brand here; I might only see 1/3rd of the products available in the US.

    I love the gold and winged eyeliner. Very Christmasey! The touch of green on the lower lash line really makes it stand out.

      Thanks Vonnie! You can try this look some time. It’s really fun and easy! =)
