Christmas Makeup Tutorial|Holiday Purple Delight

This is my second holiday makeup tutorial, and I thought I would try something a bit different. Rather than the usual red, green, or golden looks that we've been seeing for the holiday season, I went with a purple and golden look, which is still suitable for Christmas parties, but showcases a sexier and more romantic finish.

The products I used are,

  1. Kate Eyeshadow Palette (BK-1)
  2. Coffret D'or C-curve Eyes (#07 Limited Edition)
  3. Nars Duo Eyeshadow (Melusine)
  4. Nars Shimmer Eyeshadow (Etrusque)
  5. Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil (Ransom)
Take a shimmering silver shadow and paint it all over the eyelid.

Take a golden shade and put it on the front 1/3 of the eyelid.

Apply a pale lilac color to the last 1/3 of the eyelid.

Take a dark purple shade and create a sideway V shape on the eyelid and also darken the crease.

Line the upper and lower lash line with a purple color eyeliner. For a bolder look, you can go with a black or brown liner in stead. 

I truly adore this look. It's a very unique look compared to the makeup that you usually see around the holiday time, but it's still festive and shimmering enough for the Christmas celebration. I hope you like this look and wish you a wonderful holiday. 



  1. I would love to have you eye shadows. HAHAHA.

    1. I'm definitely with you. I can never get enough eye shadows LOL

  2. Wow! This is great! Really great for this holiday! :)
    Following your blog now. Hoping you'll follow mine too :)

  3. This is beautiful--you did a great job! I LOVE purple shadows! :D

  4. Wow! You're so hardworking with the pictures. Great lighting, and definitely great eye look. I love pairing any colour with gold. Gold somehow suits me nice.

    1. Thanks for your sweet comment. I'm still trying to work out the best lighting as possible. So far it's ok but sometimes it still washes out the colors a bit.
