On hindsight, even though it has been fun and challenging posting a new look every single day for 8 consecutive days, I should have done it 8 days BEFORE Christmas, instead of after. Christmas is long gone and everybody’s in the mood to welcome 2012, yet I’m still churning out Christmas looks (You can definitely use them for other occasions, of course!). Lol. But I have to keep to my word and commit to what I promised.
I cannot believe I have managed to keep up with the 8 Days of Christmas Eye Makeup Tutorials series. I’d feared I’d drop out by Day 4, but LOOK! It’s Day 7 already! *Applause and whistles*
Today’s look was exactly what I wore on Christmas day. I went for a movie with my siblings and cousins and then we all went to grandma’s house in the late evening to join the rest of the family.
Up till I was in Primary 6, Christmas gatherings used to involve a big, beautifully decorated Christmas tree at one of my uncle’s house, under which presents wrapped in the most colorful wrapping papers laid. Back then, it was only me, my younger sister, and a few cousins, making the third generation a mere total of 5 or 6.
We would sneak (in full view of the adults, actually. lol.) up to the tree and look for our names that would be found on the presents, giggle to ourselves, pretend we didn’t see anything, and put the presents back.
For my dear readers who have requested some looks created using the Horizontal Gradient Method of Eyeshadow Application, here’s one for you!
Multiple colors seem to have been used for this eye makeup look, but guess what? Discounting the eyeliner and inner corner, I only used TWO colors – MAC Irises and MAC Parfait Amour!
Eyeshadow Primer – UDPP Eden
Eyelid – MAC Irises
Contour Area – MAC Parfait Amour
Outer V – More layers of MAC Irises

I took these pictures at Toa Payoh about 2-3 weeks ago. I asked whether they keep stock and the SA said yes, they don’t restock the shelves in case of theft (=.=”).
By the way, the colors used to create Fan Bing Bing look are not available here. I don’t even know what shades they are. =(
But here are the swatches of L’oreal Color Infallible shades in Singapore.
