On hindsight, even though it has been fun and challenging posting a new look every single day for 8 consecutive days, I should have done it 8 days BEFORE Christmas, instead of after. Christmas is long gone and everybody’s in the mood to welcome 2012, yet I’m still churning out Christmas looks (You can definitely use them for other occasions, of course!). Lol. But I have to keep to my word and commit to what I promised.

Today’s eye makeup look will come with a step-by-step tutorial since it is a much coveted look created using the Vertical Gradient Method of eyeshadow application.

I will do that in 2012, however, and keep this post the same style as the rest of the 8 Days of Christmas Eye Makeup Tutorials series.

Here’s the list of products used to create this look and I’m sure you can pretty much figure out how to re-create this look, simply by referring to the Horizontal Gradient Method tutorial. =)


Eyeshadow Primer – UDPP Eden, NYX Jumbo Pencil Milk

Eyelid – The Face Shop Eyeshadow PK-103, NYX Irises, Kat Von D Beethoven Palette Speed Blue

Contour Area – None

Outer V – None

Highlight – NYX White Pearl

Inner Corner –The Face Shop Eyeshadow PK-103

Lower Lash Line –Urban Decay Naked Palette Hustle

Eyeliner –None

Eyelash Primer – Shiseido Nourishing Mascara Base

Mascara – Lancome Oscillation Vibrating Infinite Powermascara

Eyebrow – The Face Shop Face It Designing Cake Eyebrow, NYX Auto Eyebrow Pencil EP05 Dark Brown

Contrary to the previous look – 8 Days of Christmas Eye Makeup Tutorials: Day 7 – where the green contact lens didn’t look quite in place with the look, the lens looks perfect for this eyeshadow combination here.

This eye makeup look is very simple to achieve, but you’ve got to stick around with me if you wanna find out how exactly! Heh heh.
