A look featuring the new Shu Uemura Color Atelier Pressed Eyeshadow Palette (reviewed here) I put together earlier last week. If there are two looks for this palette, this would be the Day Look – you can darken the corners of the eyes and intensify the colours anytime or switch the lip colour for a Night Look. I have also revisited the Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush in Rouge for this look.
For face: I started prepping my skin with Shu Uemura UV Under Base Mousse. I pumped a small amount onto the back of my hand and used a stippling brush, MAC 188 to apply – in circular motions. Using the same brush and same motion, I applied the Shu Uemura Face Architect Sheer Refining Mousse Foundation. Before setting the foundation with powder, I used Chanel Éclat Lumiére Highlighter Face Pen to highlight parts of the face.
For eyes: I didn’t prep the lids, went in straight with P Light Beige 820 under the brow bones and applied P Light Green 520 to the inner corners of the eyes. Then I gently pat ME Soft Copper 270 to the centre of the lids and blend in lightly with P Light Green 520. I used M Dark Brown 895 to define the outer corners of my eyes and add definition to the crease – very lightly. I applied M Dark Brown 895 and used ME Soft Copper 270 to soften the edges for the lower lash line.
You can skip eyeliner if you want but I applied Shu Uemura Painting Liner in ME Brown for more definition and filled in gaps in between my lashes. Add a pair of natural false eyelashes to complete the eyes.
For cheeks & lips: I applied Smashbox Artificial Light Luminizing Powder along the cheek bones and cupid’s bow but this time, I soften it a lot which is nicer in my opinion as compared to what I did here. I used Illamasqua Powder Blusher in Rumour to lightly contour and Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush in Rouge on the apples of my cheeks. This time, I used the Sephora Natural Foundation Brush #111 which miraculously made this blush worked so much better.
For the lips, I picked the Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Supreme Shine in PK 340.
