Merry Christmas Eve, everyone!
Christmas falls on a Sunday and the year ends on a Saturday this year, making the Christmas week a straight line on the calender.
You know, like this:
I love it when the 1st day of the month falls on a Monday, or Sunday, however my calendar looks for the year. It just looks more complete, and makes counting that much easier, don’t you think?
I’ve been collecting a good stash of eye makeup looks and selected 8 of them to make a series of 8 Days of Christmas Eye Makeup to share with you guys! Hope you will find some inspiration for your own eye makeup!
Here’s the first look!
Eyeshadow Primer – UDPP Eden
Eyelid – MAC Stars ‘N’ Rockets, Kate Jewel Carat GD-1
Contour Area – MAC blush in Peaches
Outer V – NYX Trio Eyeshadow Dark Brown
Lower Lash Line – L’Oreal Color Infallible Eyeshadow Emerald Lame
Eyeliner – Pupa Multiplay Triple Purpose Eye Pencil 07 I love that this forest green eye pencil can be smudged out to look such a sweet lavender!
Eyelash Primer – Shiseido Nourishing Mascara Base
Eyebrow – NYX Auto Eyebrow Pencil EP05 Dark Brown
Face Primer – Monistat Chafing Relief Powder-gel
Foundation – Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation 52
Lip Balm – Estee Lauder Lip Conditioner SPF 15
Lipstick – Revlon Colorburst in Blush
I really wanted to put up a gold eye makeup look as the first look, but I thought it’s too much gold to take in considering the previous 2 posts were very much gold-infused already – Gold eyeshadow and Gold-themed party.
The next one’s gonna be a gold look though! 😀
Oh, and why 8 days, you ask? I wanted to do a 12 days series, but it’s gonna stretch into 2012 and would kinda have lost it Christmas-y mood by then.
