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!!! :D 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. :P

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!

8 Days of Christmas Eye Makeup Tutorials: Day 2

Told ya it’s gonna be a gold look! Heh heh heh.

Wooohooooo!! It’s Christmas Day! What are you doing today? Going anywhere special?

Today’s look is very easy, I played down the rest of the eyeshadows to make the MAC Old Gold pigment stand out. It’s a very warm and classy look, nothing too extravagant that would frighten off little cousins – like these!

Here’re the products used to create this gold eye makeup look:

EYES

Eyeshadow Primer – UDPP Eden

Eyelid – MAC Old Gold pigment

Contour Area – MAC Satin Taupe

Outer V – Urban Decay Naked Palette Darkhorse

Highlight – MAC Shroom

Makeup Haul: MAC Shroom, MAC Naked Lunch, MAC Satin Taupe, MAC Eyebrow Brunette, MAC Pink Swoon, Shiseido Mascara Base

I don’t know why I ended up with 3 MAC neutral/brown eyeshadows. I’m not even a fan of neutral eye makeup. I love my purples, blues, greens, yellows and reds. But I thought I should give ‘em a try since so many people love Shroom for being a great brow bone highlight, Naked Lunch for its subtle pinkish charm and Satin Taupe for its purplish brown tone.

MAC blush – Pink Swoon, MAC eyeshadows in Satin Taupe, Naked Lunch, Shroom.

And then there’s my THIRD pan of MAC blush in Pink Swoon. You just can’t go wrong with that pure a pink on your cheeks! Pink Swoon is also Carrie Underwood’s favorite blush from MAC, which she wore on her wedding day.

Also got MAC eyebrow pencil in Brunette. It’s not really a pencil coz there is no need for sharpening due to its automatic sharpening mechanism. I hope to love this because my previous Rimmel eyebrow pencil was way too dark for my black eyebrows. =( Eyebrows drawn too thick, too thin, too dark or too soft can affect one’s makeup and throw it off balance.

Lastly, there’s Shiseido Nourishing Mascara Base, which is a clear eyelash primer to be layered beneath mascara for longer lasting mascara wear. Gonna do a comparison of this with my current Smashbox Lash Primer! (Update: Comparison of Smash Lash Primer and Shiseido Nourishing Mascara Base)

Clear Base!


Yay Hay to makeup hauls! =D
