Makeup Tutorial: Golden Green, Lavender, Bronze And Life Of A Bun!

Here’s the makeup tutorial I promised! I wore this for the first NDP 2012 media event I attended with the bloggers, and it received plenty of compliments! It’s not dramatic or OTT, in fact, it’s very wearable and I would categorize it under a daily look. It’s also not too difficult to create. Try it! :)

Have you read my second post for NDP 2012? You can see my 16-year-old face. LOL.


Eyeshadow Primer – UDPP Eden

Eyelid – Makeup Geek Shimmermint (inner 2/3); Makeup Geek Unicorn (outer 1/3)

Inner Corner – Makeup Geek Shimma Shimma

Contour Area – Makeup Geek Cocoa Bear. I really love Cocoa Bear. The warm brown really blends nicely into my skintone.

Outer V – None

Brow Bone Highlight – Makeup Geek Shimma Shimma

Lower Lash Line – Urban Decay Smog

Eyeliner – L’Oreal Color Infallible Emerald Lame; Bobbi Brown Longwear Gel Liner Black Ink. I applied Emerald Lame first, then Black Ink over it so that a little Emerald Lame peeks out above Black Ink, for a more dimensional feel. Love this effect.

Eyelash Primer – Dior Diorshow Maximizer

Mascara – L’Oreal Collagene Mascara


Japan Kanebo KATE Jewel Carat GD-1 Eye Shadow Sparkles Like Gold Diamonds!

Kanebo Kate names all its eyeshadows with gold in them ‘GD-1’. There’s GD-1 in Eye Shadow DB, Graphical Eyes A, and Eye Shadow JC.

BR-1 has it worse (depending on how you look at it), since brown is such a popular color, BR-1, BR-2 can be found in ALL its eye products range.

So confusing!

I’d been eyeing the JC (Jewel Carat) Eyeshadows for a while since I first laid eyes on them. There are altogether 8 colors shown on the KATE international website,


PU-1 (light purple)

BR-2 (light brown)

GD-1 (gold)

BR-1 (dark brown)

GY-1 (silver)

PK-1 (pink)

WT-1 (white)

GN-1 (green)
