My Christmas Eve Makeup Look



Having done two video tutorials, I realized how much I miss vlogging. It's actually my very first platform before.

This look was inspired with the large gold tunic from Forever 21 that I wore for Christmas Eve this year and the TLTSN necklace. It's actually pretty vibrant in person and it really gives the sparkles I wanted for a Christmas look. :) I just love golden eye makeup look partnered with a bit of bronze for a nice gradation.


I hope the video is helpful enough for you to try out the look. :)



To create this look, I used the following:


For the face:
GoodskinLabs Z-Pore Instant Pore Refiner
Estee Lauder Idealist Cooling Eye Illuminator
Revlon Age Defying with DNA Advantage Cream Makeup
Revlon Colorstay Aqua Minerals
Clinique Superbalanced Powder Makeup in Deep
Venus and Mars' Pureglow Minerals in Rosiest Rose
Venus and Mars' Illuminator in Elusive
Wet n Wild Coloricon Bronzer in Princess
The Body Shop Brow and Liner Kit in 02

For the eyes:
Beauty Pro Cosmetic in Sweet and Smoky Palette
The Body Shop Smoky Eyes Palette
Fanny Serrano Long-Lasting Liner Pen
Benefit Cosmetics They're Real Mascara

For the lips:
MAC Half n Half Lipstick
Majolica Majorca Lipgloss



I'm loving the Fanny Serrano Long-Lasting Liner Pen. For the price, I think it's really worth getting. But if you're still apprehensive, wait for my review. It's coming up soon. :)

As for the Revlon Age Defying with DNA Advantage Cream Makeup, it's targeted to be a makeup and anti-aging in one. I like the medium coverage but I don't think this is the best makeup for my skin type. Maybe with several tries I can decide what I think about this certain foundation.

My current favorite at the moment is the Benefit Cosmetic's They're Real Mascara. :) It feels as if I have falsies on! Must review this soon for you!


I really love the shade gold. I remember back when i started getting into makeup how hungry I was for gold eye shadow! There was just lack of golf e/s then. I was so happy when i got into mineral makeup because at that time, makeup with gold eye shadow was just expensive... But now, I have several that I don't know what to do with! And the one I'm particularly loving is the gold eye shadow from the Beauty Pro Cosmetics Sweet and Smoky Palette.


It's obvious how crazy in love I am with this palette. :)



How was your Christmas Holiday? I spent mine by going to my mom's side of the family for Christmas Eve dinner. Then Ron and I went to Marikina and stayed for Noche Buena with my dad's side of the family. Being an only child, I'm very close to my cousins and I treat them like my own brothers and sisters. I just love spending time with them. :) The next day, Ron and I spent it with his family. We had fun playing with his nephews. I got a chance to play hopscotch again! It was so fun! For some quality time alone, we both decided to catch a flick. Watching movies have always been our thing and i'm glad we got to it on Christmas Day. 

This year, it's was mostly me who got to give gifts instead and not the other way around. But I didn't mind... the whole year was like Christmas with all the blessings and opportunities I have received. I'm lucky to have a boyfriend, true friends and family who believes in me and love me for who I am. If that isn't a worth a Christmas tree full of presents, I wouldn't know what is. :)
