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.

Eyelid – MAC Old Gold pigment

Contour Area – MAC Satin Taupe

Outer V – Urban Decay Naked Palette Darkhorse

Highlight – MAC Shroom

Makeup Haul: Real Techniques, Monistat, NYC, Milani, Prestige, Essence of Beauty

Alright, just because they are not available in Singapore does not mean I HAVE TO buy them.

But so many blogs I follow are people from the US and they go on and on about how good these ‘drugstore’ products are.
