EOTD | Chinese New Year 2011 Rainbow Eye

March 4, 2011
By

Above is a rainbow eye that I wore on the first day of  Chinese New Year this year. I can’t remember what I’d used but I’m fairly certain a few shadows from my MAC Peacocky haul contributed to this eye.

Although red is the traditional auspicious hue of the festival, I only wore it once – in the form of Julie Hewett Lipstick in Oona Noir – during the entire period. Cheery colours are good too, no, to usher in the new lunar year? ;)

    This is nice! I love the accent of the olivey shade above the teal – its “sweet and punchy” (:P the Chartreuse shade from MAC To The Beach! hee hee)

      Thanks, Kas! :) I think it was MAC Gorgeous Gold mixed with a yellow green? I can’t remember.

      Hi Erlina,

      You could try a toned-down version. Have fun! :)

    Nice one, mag…coasted on here while looking at your CNY red EOTD post. I don’t have blending skills that can do this yet ;)
