Makeup Look: Bourjois Blue Eyeliner + Sugarpill Purple Lower Lashline (And A Wedding Proposal!)


The trick to make colored eyeliners work is to keep the rest of the eye makeup neutral or not-so-colorful, so that the focus is on the eyeliner. This is the look I wore in the MAC 109 Small Contour Brush review and Bourjois Contour Clubbing Eyeliner review.

Here are the products used:


Eyeshadow Primer – UDPP Eden

Eyelid – Sugarpill Afterparty

Contour Area – NYX Red Bean

Outer V – None

Highlight – Sugarpill Tako

Inner Corner – Sugarpill Tako

Lower Lash Line – Sugarpill Poison Plum, NYX Dark Brown

Eyeliner  – Bourjois Contour Clubbing Blue Remix Eyeliner, Clio Brush Liner Kill Black

Eyelash Primer – Shiseido Nourishing Mascara Base

Mascara – Clio O’Tank Volume Mascara (this is the crappy mascara I was talking about in the previous post)

Eyebrow – Lioele Auto Eyebrow 02 Dark Brown


Foundation – Bourjois Flower Perfection Foundation

Contour – NYC Brozner in Sunny

Cheeks – Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso


Lip Balm – Lioele Magic Lip Treatment

Lipgloss – NYX Round Lip Gloss Ballerina Pink (in love with this Barbie doll color lately!)


On another note,

My friend, K, roped all of us in to help make his marriage proposal a blast. It happened last Saturday at the bridge along Clarke Quay, the one near Jumbo Seafood restaurant. You’d have seen a huge crowd at the bridge if you were there at about 7pm. I never knew my friend is such a romantic, and a very detailed one at that.

The plan included having 2 of our girl friends asking J out for shopping right after her exams, eventually leading her to the Clarke Quay bridge, 10 rose-bearers (our friends, but whom the bride doesn’t know) would hand out roses to her one by one upon her arrival at the bridge, the rest of us standing behind, forming a semi-circle around her while a suave dance number is performed by K’s buddies, then K would kneel down and ask for her hand, slip on the ring, party poppers would go off, helium balloons set free and we’d all go for a sumptuous dinner to celebrate the union of this wonderful couple.

K prepared a detailed proposal in PDF form and sent it to all of us. Great effort, really.

You can conclude from a picture below that I was the dance choreographer. Heh heh.

In total, more than 30 people were mobilized to make this proposal an unforgettable one. K had to bribe an elderly busker who wears a shiny silver vest and matching hat to let us have the whole bridge for those couple of hours.

The celebratory steamboat dinner was fantastic, the food was fresh, the soup bases were rich, and everyone was just happy to have been a part of the evening.

Oh, the bridge was filled with shiny, colorful confetti and we thought it best to do some clean up even though there’d be workers to do it the next morning. We borrowed brooms from the nearby restaurants. Apart from wanting to avoid getting Stomped for the wrong reason, we really wanted to clear up the mess.

It was a great experience to be part of this proposal, and to have played a crucial role at that. I wish the couple endless years of marital bliss!

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.

Throughout this blog you will see Bun Bun in different poses.

Instead of using numbers (3/5, 4/5) or alphabets (B+, A+) to rate products, I put Bun Bun in different positions and expressions to represent the rating given to the product after a review.

In Bun-O-Meter, the first on the list would mean a 5/5 rating and the last one a 1/5 rating.

You can always refer to the sidebar any time you don’t understand what Bun Bun’s pose means.

I hope you enjoy reading my makeup and beauty posts as much as I did writing them.

Talk to you soon! =)

    How do you like the Lioele? I’m so glad you got it!

    • Bun Bun

      It is LOVE! So easy to apply and the precision is simply amazing! Can get to the tail end of the brow without awkwardly twisting and turning my hand or the pencil. Do you use it too? What shade is yours? Mine’s 02.

      • BooBooNinja

        Yes, I use it. I use #03 in Grey-Black. I think it’s a little grey for me, but I actually use it lightly on top of the K Palette 24hr Eyebrow Pen in Grey-Brown. It makes for a long-lasting, multi-dimensional brow.
        I remember myself and another reader telling you about the Lioele at one point. Maybe it was in response to your post about the Face Shop’s (or Etude House’s?) eyebrow powder.
        I’m glad you like the Lioele. Where did you find it? I have to buy it online.

        • Bun Bun

          YES!!! You guys were the one who made me get my butt off my chair and get it! HAHA! I’ve heard about it from frmheadtotoe a long time ago, but didn’t think of getting it coz there’re so many products in the world I can’t possibly own every single one every time a fellow blogger raves. Then I happened to chance upon it again in some other blog and the desire was re-ignited. There was a spark, but you guys were the catalyst to the BONFIRE! Hahaha! I searched quite long and hard for it but managed to find it. Yay! I got it in some small shop in Singapore.

          • BooBooNinja

            *whew* I’m grinning like a loony and a bit out of breath because I just did a giant booty dance of happiness. I feel so cool and awesome that something lil’ ol me recommended made a difference!

  • Ekta

    That blue eyeliner looks great. And what a lovely wedding proposal! :)

    • Bun Bun

      Thanks Ekta! It’s a really gorgeous blue, love it much!

  • Sunny

    I love the look and the proposal story. Super duper romantic!!! I love the picture of you dancing too. Niiiiice :)

    • Bun Bun

      It was!!! I wanted to tear at the climax when my friend went down on bended knee to ask for her hand, then realized I’d have looked really silly when the bride-to-be herself didn’t. Lol.

  • Ling

    This is a great look on you! I wish I had better eyelids like yours

    • Bun Bun

      Thanks Ling! I wish I had more prominent cheekbones like yours too! Oh we could go on all day about what we love about each other’s faces. Lol. 😀

  • Dayna

    Gorgeous as always. :) I think you look good in any eye colours really.

    • Bun Bun

      Thanks Dayna! Not really though. Cool toned colors make my eyes look sad, so I stay try as much to stay away from them. I think it’s important to find what looks good on our skin! What are your V day plans? 😀

      • Dayna

        No plans for today. :( Coincidentally, today is my off-day and I’m just slacking at home, catching up on my sleep. Haha! How about yours? :)

  • a!kO

    I love playing with colored liners 😀 that is why i have a lot in my possessions >XD and I am always looking for more 😛 Awww…how sweet and romantic is your friend??! I would probably never get a proposal like that but it’s always good to dream…maybe one day 😛 Congrats to them!


    • Bun Bun

      I never thought my friend could be so romantic too. Totally blown away by his efforts. So you like your proposal to be a BIG affair or a private one? I want mine to be BIG BIG BIG. Lol.

      • a!kO

        Awww I am so jealous of those people with romantic boyfriends 😛 haha…I would like my proposal to be surprising and romantic although I hate surprises but a surprise proposal wouldn’t hurt! I don’t know about HUGE proposal..I get shy but deep down inside I do want a HUGE one 😛 cause I want other people to be jealous of my amazing boyfriend HAHAHAHA… but I am pretty sure my boyfriend won’t go to that great extend fml. and…to top it off being a malay…hahaha. that’s like the gold at the end of a rainbow 😛 since engagement are so planned…what a shame 😛


  • BooBooNinja

    How do these liners compare to the Pupa Multipurpose ones? I went to Sephora yesterday and tried out Stila’s Smudgestick in Peacock (gorgeousssss… I’m looking for my perfect teal, by the way). The colour is incredible except.


    I had an allergic reaction to either it or to Sephora’s makeup remover. :(
    Today my eyelids are swollen. Sure, the swelling gives me more lid space to work with (if I could even bring myself to play with makeup today) but I am not a happy camper right now.

    Anyway, I think I am addicted to your blog. I have read this post before but I found myself going back to it. I always go through your archives. Err… perhaps I shouldn’t admit my lame habits. Oh well. :)
