Christmas Eye Makeup Tutorial

With only one week left till Christmas, I thought I would do a Christmas look. Someone (Jian) had been requesting (whining hehe XP) for a tutorial on how I apply eyeshadow so here it is!!

I went to a friend's Christmas party today & wore this look. Was not too creative with the colors...literally just used Christmas colors (green, red, & gold). XD

Products used:
Urban Decay Primer Potion (not pictured) 
ELF Cream Shadow in Natural Glow
Inglot Freedom System Palette - shades AMC Shine 25 & AMC Shine 12 (reviewed here)
Rock & Republic Eyeshadow in Envy
MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack
Fairy Drops Treatment Base Mascara (reviewed here)
Shu Uemura Ultimate Expression Mascara

Prime your eyelid & apply a gold cream shadow over your entire lid.
This'll help intensive the colors.

With a flat shader brush pick up some of the shimmery red shade.

Apply it to the outer half of your eye.
Work it from the outer corner inward in a diagonal line (as pictured).

Tightline your upper lashline with a black gel liner. Smudge it out a bit.
This'll give a nice smokey affect when you apply the rest of your shadows.

With another shader brush (or you can use the other side of the previous brush) pick up some of the gold shade.

Apply this color to the inner half of the lid.
Blend this with the red to soften the lines.

Pick up a dark green shade on a pencil brush.

Apply it to the outer-v. Blend well into the crease.
Also don't worry about the fall out, you can clean it up easily after with some concealer.

Blend well with a fluffy blending brush to soften any harsh lines.
If any of the colors have been blended out too much just go back and touch up a bit.

Line the outer corner of the lower lashline with the dark green. Apply the red on the center of the lower lashline & the gold on the inner corner.

Touch up the liner on the upper lashline if you want a darker, more intense look.
Line the upper and lower waterline to add to the intensity if desired.

Apply mascara on top & bottom lashes.


Hope the tutorial made sense (somewhat)!

Don't really have any fancy tricks but hope it helps!!


My festive Christmas nails!!

Used Sephora by OPI Meet for Drinks & Wild About Shimmer.

Wild About Shimmer makes such a cool effect!! I suck at explaining so I won't even bother trying hahaha


I can't believe Christmas is only in ONE WEEK!!! :O It's going toooo fast!
Regardless I hope you all are enjoying the festivities of the holidays and get to spend time with your friends & family :D
