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.


How Can Anyone Not Heart the Sugarpill Burning Heart Palette, Sweetheart Palette, and Absinthe Loose Powder?

If you come from a land that does not sell crazily pigmented makeup products,

or where bold, vibrant eyeshadow colors are just not seen casually on the streets,

or where people stop to stare in bewilderment at a person who dons striking eyeshadow colors,

yet secretly wish that you can wear such makeup,

then let me hold your hand and tell you that you are not alone.

I come from such a land.


I must be the 23, 675th person to vouch for the integrity and intensity of Sugarpill products. Overwhelming love from all over the world notwithstanding, my desire to declare my love for these amazing products must not be denied.

The package arrived just after a week. From US to Singapore! That’s got to be the fastest overseas shipment I have ever received. But before that, I waited for an agonizing 3 to 4 months to make my order.
