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.

Simple Eye Makeup Tutorial Using MAC Gorgeous Gold and Stage Poison on the Eyelid

It’s the weekend! Yippeee!!

Some day this week I put together a look that required just 2 colors on the eyelid. I usually use at least 3 colors on the eye – on the Contour Area to diffuse a strong color, on the Outer V to create an accent, or just multiple colors on the lid itself.

But on that fateful day I just thought of using these 2 colors – MAC Gorgeous Gold (really gorgeous duo-toned eyeshadow that reflects gold and green) and Stage Poison (an electrifying shimmery blue that looks great applied subtly and built upon).

MAC 109 Small Contour Brush

I’ve finally got my hands on the MAC 109 Small Contour Brush! I tried searching for a dupe, but it seems the consensus that this brush is almost un-dupable.

I’ve been using my MAC 168 Large Angled Contour Brush for contouring but find it too big and fluffy and kinda hard to control for contouring.

I don’t have obvious cheekbones, not even when I do the fishy face that would force the bones to show on many people. It’s so irritating when people say “just do the fish face and apply the contouring powder right along there”. I’m like “right along WHERE?!?” @_@
