Shiseido Fall 2009 Makeup Collection

Shiseido introduces its Fall 2009 Makeup collection, created by Shiseido’s Artistic Director Dick Page. The inspiration for this line was drawn from mosaic art, bringing a variety of different shades together to create a “full wardrobe” of colors, one that would fulfill a woman’s basic needs for every occasion. These colors are reflected in the new Luminizing Satin Eye Color Line, an elegant collection with the luminous look of fine silk. Available in 15 unique shades, this new interpretation of neutrals, pastels and brights makes choosing a color an adventurous pleasure. Each shade is meant to wear alone or in combination for an unlimited variety of looks for the season.

Embrace the warmth of summer, lay down in a grassy SPOT of GREEN, and feel summer wrap its arms around you.

A lovely light grassy green melted all over the inner lid to add a bit of pop, vavoom–muted by a pale peach and brighter, yet still soft, orange on the eyelid. Add dimension to the look by lightly brushing in a dark, faded brown into the crease. Finish by dusting an impossibly light beige on the brow bone and inner tear duct to highlight. Line lower lash line and upper water line with a smoky brown to define eyes, and add a few coats of black or black-brown mascara to pull it all together. Pair with a flurry of peachy lips with a shimmery, bronzy highlight and coral lips to match.
