Shades Of U Contest: Holiday Look # 14 From Christina

Christina's lovely holiday look was inspired by (of all things) a shawl she bought for a friend as a Christmas present. It was a heartwarmingly unique inspiration for her holiday look, because it represents something very personal and meaningful to her. I absolutely love the colors she used for her eyes. They have a touch of sparkle that is indeed very reminiscent of the season. I can vouch that MMBB eyeshadows have some really unique and gorgeous colors and texture, so I wasn't really surprised when Christina, from Selangor, Malaysia, featured beautiful colors from this company.

Christina explains her holiday look in her own words:

My inspiration was a sequined shawl I bought as a Christmas/holiday gift for a friend. The shiny gold, green and red sequins, interspersed with beige embroidery were the basis of my look: rosy lips coupled with shimmery gold-green eyes lined all around with metallic dark brown for interest. Cheeks were kept subtle with just a dusting of shimmery radiance.
