Eyeshadow Tutorial #3: New Year’s Eve Look

Usually, new year’s eve is a rather quiet event for my hubby and I. I am usually super busy on New Year’s eve with the business and by night time, i am exhausted to go out and celebrate. But, for this year, we’ve decided to go out for dinner, drinks & dance with great company! I know, in the previous tutorial, i was gonna wear that look out but decided to go with the “gold & red” look instead.

Gold Eyes & Red Lips


Urban Decay Primer Potion, “Original” – Apply all over eye lid and onto the brow and lower lash line(Urban Decay, Sephora Malaysia)

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil, “Pure Gold” –  Apply all over eye lid (NYX Cosmetics)

NYX Soho Glam Collection, “Gold” – Apply it onto the lid where the Jumbo Eye Pencil has been applied (I find that this avoids creasing at the eyelids if just the eye pencil alone is used, gives it a more solid look)
