December is the month of festive or as they call it in the States- "Holidays Season". It used to be true for me when I was a student (think 4 months long summer break. Oh, how I miss you so!) But now, as part of the working world, my Christmas-New Year holidays has been cut down HEAPS to 8 days. :(

ANYWAYS, today's FOTD is kinda holiday-themed (which is kinda a tamer version of my Peacock FOTD), with my favourite colours (besides neutrals) - Coral and Maroon.

I wore this to the mini Sydney Beauty Blogger meet up with Kimmi from The Plastic Diaries, Christabel from Make Up Mole and Clare from CClareBear for high tea at The Victoria Room. That place is LOVELY, the deco and ambiance were perfect for 4 make up enthusiasts to have our beauty conversation over a scrumptious meal! Such a shame that my taste bud was failing me thanks to the nasty flu I was having. But it was a lovely meet up with the girls and I am definitely looking forward to another one next year! :)

Lenses from CircleLensAu

On my EYES
ELF Mineral Eyeshadow Primer
MAC Paint Pot in Coral Crepe
MAC Shockwave from Fafi Quad
MAC Mineralized Eyeshadow in Play on Plums (Dark Burgandy Colour) 
The Faceshop Eyeshadow Duo in Pink Jewel
ELF Single Eyeshadow in Amethyst
Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Eyeliner in Black
Milani Metallic Eyeshadow Pencil in Black
Darkness Falsies (which I ABSOLUTELY love!)
Loreal One in a Million Mascara in Brown
Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil in Hazelnut

Step 1: Primed my eyes with ELF Mineral Eyeshadow Primer and MAC Paint Pot in Coral Crepe as a base eyeshadow. 
Step 2: Apply Shockwave all over lid.
Step 3: Apply the Burgandy colour from Play on Plums at the outer half of my crease and outer corner of my eyes.
Step 4: Apply Amethyst at the outer V of my eyes to give the look a better dimension. 
Step 5: Use the lighter pink colour from my TFS Pink Jewel Duo and blend the colour along my crease. Use it as a highlight colour under my browbone.

The final look! Poor photo quality though :(

(Forgive the worn out face. I felt so sick after I got home that day =.=")

On my FACE
Etude House Magic BB Cream
Garnier Anti Dark Circles Roll On in Light
Rimmel Hide The Blemishes Concealer in Ivory
Maybelline Dream Matte Powder in Cream
ELF Warm Powder Bronzer
ELF Powder Blush in Peachy Keen
MAC MSF in Candlelight

On my LIPS
MAC Lipstick in Jazzed

Outfit of the Day
Belt: TEMT
High waisted shorts: Glassons
Blazer: Valley Girl
Rings: EQUIP and Sports Girl
Gladiators: Some random shop in Malaysia

This would be the perfect outfit for a gorgeous summer day. Unfortunately, the weather in Sydney has been acting up lately and I just realised we haven't exactly hit 30 degrees SINCE summer started. 

Just throw on a blazer and you're good to go!!! Something more "formal" compared to my shorts-singlets-thongs outfit since we were going for "high tea".

Sulking cos I was so friggin' sick on Saturday. THANK GOD I have almost recovered now, just in time for my work Christmas Party today and my long haul flight in Malaysia. SEE YOU SOON MALAYSIA AND SINGAPORE. Weeeeeee!!! :)

I would like to wish my dear readers on Through Beauty Eyes MERRY CHRISTMAS in advanced because I don't think I am gonna see you guys before then. :)
