This look was just three colours and some simple blending. Easy-peasy, and it doesn't look too bad either, given my small eyelid space and general lack of makeup skillz, haha!
For this look, I used Pearly White (exclusive to the palette), Gold Beige (also exclusive to the palette), and 122 Metallic Copper (a shade in MUFE's permanent lineup). The photo below shows the colours I used:
Colours used for my CNY eye look: Pearly White, Gold Beige, and Metallic Copper.
For placement, I simply put Pearly White on my browbone, Gold Beige on my lid, and 122 Metallic Copper in the contour area. And I blended. And I guess as far as technique goes, that's it! I also lined my lower lashline from outer corner inwards with MUFE Aqua Eyes Eyeliner Pencil in 2L Pearly Brown (okay you can't really see it because it's a thin line), and finished off with Bobbi Brown's No Smudge Mascara.
My CNY eye makeup: Closed to show placement of colours more clearly.
I quite liked this eye look, except that maybe the contrast between Gold Beige and Metallic Taupe wasn't as great as I thought they would be, so they blended into each other more than expected. Also, the colours pulled a little orange on me (but not as orange as the camera captured them as), because of my skintone. If you are a bit more warm-toned, you would get a much better-looking gold and brown combo. I suppose on the bright side, this gives me an ultra-wearable coppery eye for CNY!
My Chinese New Year eye makeup: Another angle, hopefully you can see the different colours?
Anyway, that's my attempt at being a little more festive for CNY! I like how this is gold-ish, coppery, and pretty appropriate for CNY, while still being wearable!
