EOTD/FOTD: CNY Eve Look - Neutral Yellow

This is the look I did on CNY eve. I just stick to neutrals as it's easy and quick to do. But I used yellow (MAC Bright Future eyeshadow, Veluxe Pearl finish, from Style Warrior collection, May 2009) on my lids, just because! ;)

I didn't feel like using red eyeshadow so I figured using yellow and some gold for the eyes would be good for a CNY EOTD too.

Eye Of The Day

1 - Define the brow with Dodo Tip Brow 03;
2 - Apply Estee Lauder Sand Pearl Shimmer Eyeshadow all over the lid as a base;
3 - Apply MAC Bright Future on the lid;
4 - Apply Stila Kitten eyeshadow on the outer corner of the eye, crease and also as highlight, blend;
5 - Dab Stila Kitten eyeshadow on the inner corner of the eye;
6 - Line the upper lash line with Stila Kajal Eye Liner in Tigers Eye;
7 - Since Kajal is kohl and will smudge, instead of using a powder eyeshadow of similar shade to set it, I used MAC Superslick Liquid Eyeliner in Pure Show (golden yellow shade) on top of the Kajal Eye Liner. By doing this, it didn't only set the Kajal but also impart a golden tone to the brown color, making it appear golden brown;
8 - Apply Stila Kitten eyeshadow lightly to the lower lid;
9 - Finish off with Maybelline Magnum Super Film (in these EOTD photos, mascara was not applied yet.)

Face Of The Day

Face: Juice Beauty Perfecting Foundation in Organic Sand;
MAC Shell Pearl Beauty Powder

Cheeks: The Body Shop Malaysia Roseflower Blush

Lips: MAC Kissable Lipcolour from Peacocky Collection - Love Peck (it appeared brown in the tube, but it's actually a deep and rich berry shade)..... More on MAC Peacocky Kissable Lipcolour later.

Sorry that I am back to my old-style of presenting EOTD/FOTD, without the step-by-step photos. But when I was doing this, well, let's just say that these days, I have tonnes of things that need to be attended to first before doing things for myself and ME. OK, not gonna rant today.... it's still New Year! :D
Lunar New Year or Chinese New Year is celebrated for 15 days!

In future, I will revert back to the step-by-step style of presenting my EOTD/FOTDs, subject to I have more time for myself. :)

Have a nice day!

Bright future looks like such a beautiful yellow! Shame I didn't grab it when it came out!

Vonvon said...

Thank you, gio! And the look is quick to pull off too. :)

Vonvon said...

Thank you, Jelena! :)

Vonvon said...

Yes, Dee! It's really bright and intense. Hopefully, MAC will repromote it in one of their coming collections, and you can get it then. :)

Haven't seen any yellow eyeshadow from MAC which comes close to Bright Future.
