Look In The New Black

The 130th Shu Uemura Spring Mode Makeup Collection invites you to be an “Egérie:” a rebellious and daring spirit who never loses her sense of elegance and sophistication.

The collection is inspired by the glamour rock and roll. Fleshy, glimmering shine is complemented with delicate satin sheen finishes to transport you under the spotlight of the captivating rock stage. Thick black lashes with eyeliner made from faux snake pressed leather. Add a hint of rock accessories for a wild and sexy look.

A lot of us will be staring at this pair of lashes, perhaps wondering how we can pull off a look using them. To be honest, I have no idea when I will get to use them, where can I wear them to and how to put them on. The aim is to focus on the lashes. Keep rest of the makeup clean and simple. I used white eyeshadow to brighten the eyes and brown shimmery eyeshadow to define and add depth to the corners. A peachy blush follow by highlighting the cheekbones is essential.

Finish off with a orangy lip stick or lip gloss.

I find some false eyelashes by Shu Uemura difficult to put on, the lash band is hard and it is too wide for my eyes. For some designs, it is impossible to shorten the length but for this, I am giving it a try. I cut about 0.8cm (measure and adjust according to your eyes) from the front and trim the ends so it will not irritate my eyes.  

A simple yet elegant look for all occasion.
