8 Days of Christmas Eye Makeup Tutorials: Day 8

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.

Today’s eye makeup look will come with a step-by-step tutorial since it is a much coveted look created using the Vertical Gradient Method of eyeshadow application.

8 Days of Christmas Eye Makeup Tutorials: Day 7

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.

If I ever spot a brand new Goldmine shining in its Gorgeous Gold Glory at a L’Oreal cosmetics counter in Singapore with a 20% discount,

I’M GONNA GRAB IT!!!

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.

8 Days of Christmas Eye Makeup Tutorials: Day 5

This must be one of my favorite eye makeup looks! It was one of my AH-HA! moments that resulted in the creation of this look. So many different colors used, all complementing each other flawlessly. I love how the gold, bronze-brown and maroon eyeshadows, and blue matte eyeliner look so perfect alongside one another. The green contact lenses brings the whole look together.

I it very mucheee!

I wore it to a Christmas Eve’s eve gathering with friends and it was perfect for my color-block ensemble of a persimmon-orange top and cobalt-blue shorts.

8 Days of Christmas Eye Makeup Tutorials: Day 4

Have you ever spent a White Christmas?

It was not until my 17th Christmas did I see and touch snow. My family and I were vacationing in Korea and my dad’s Korean friend said it was probably not going to snow that year. We were actually not too disappointed by that as the trip to Muju Island to ski on the mountains was enough to keep us all excited.

On Christmas morning I was the first to wake up and through my half-opened, blurry eyes, saw white flakes descending outside our window. IT SNOWED ON CHRISTMAS MORNING!!! 😀 GOODNESS! Pure exhilaration filled the room as my two younger brothers, who were only 8 and 9 year-olds then, squealed in delight and jumped around in the room.

It was extremely cold outside but it was so heartwarming to finally be able to extend my hand and have snow flakes falling onto my palm. Yes, I licked them up. 😛

At 17 years of age, I wore not a single trace of makeup. There, I just brought this post back to topic. Haha!

So here’s today’s face and silver-blue eye makeup tutorial!
