This look was done on Sunday :) Something neutral while celebrating my sister’s birthday with the fam. I did a very neutral look today (which I love, can’t wait to share), as some of my relatives are in town, and I’m five minutes from heading out to meet up with my family and the extended family members for dim sum (mmm!).

Happy hump day!

EDITED: UGH! Don’t post in hurry! Actual pictures up!

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Soft Ochre paint pot (creamy neutral base), Dreammaker eyeshadow (soft yellow-gold), Bold & Brazen eyeshadow (coppery brown), Go! eyeshadow (dark gold-brown), Orpheus kohl power (gold-black), Plushlash mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Dainty mineralize blush (soft peachy pink)
  • Lips: Gypsy Rose Pro Longwear Lustre Colour (medium pink)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: Dreammaker = Nylon; Bold & Brazen = Twinks; Go! = Woodwinked, Orpehus = Buried Treasure; Dainty = Peachykeen, Gypsy Rose = Skew

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Soft Ochre paint pot all over the lid as the base with the 249. On the inner lid, apply Dreammaker eyeshadow using the 239. Apply Bold & Brazen to the middle of the lid, overlaying it with Dreammaker. Darken the outer lid using Go! eyeshadow and drag into crease using the 239. Sweep Dreammaker underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with Orpheus kohl power on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Dainty using the 129.

On top of INSTINCT and the Viktor & Rolf eyelashes, shu uemura is putting out Face Architect Remodeling Cream Foundation and Brightening Cleansing Oil this Fall.

face architect remodeling cream foundation w/SPF 10 ($39.00)

As part of the growing FACE ARCHITECT franchise, shu uemura introduces the latest in foundation – face architect remodeling cream foundation ($45), a new creamy formula that is ideal for adding subtle highlights and accents to the face. Face Architect, Mr. Uemura’s philosophy towards face makeup, used the face as a canvas to apply makeup that will enhance natural beauty. From studying the bone structure and variations of skin thickness, to observing the individual differences in women, this detailed observation is known as “structuralizing” the face. By observing, it will become clear which parts of the face need more or less foundation to sculpt and refine natural beauty.

Remodeling Effect: Flex-fit formula allows foundation to sit naturally as a second layer of skin, which allows for buildable coverage. Cover-fit particles provide for precise and transparent coverage.
Ultimate Comfort: The skincare-like formula contains nearly 20% depsea water and volatile oil, which allows foundation to spread comfortably on skin.
Anti-Aging Treatment: UVA/UVB SPF protection and Jasmine extract is added for an anti-oxidant benefit.
Semi-Matte Finish: Semi-matte texture with natural sheen creates a sophisticated, chic look.

Jason Hoffman, shu uemura Principal Makeup Artist says, “Apply the face architect remodeling cream foundation with the NEW shu uemura Foundation Brush in Natural 18. This exclusive brush created with only the best selected soft goat hair was created to apply foundation smoothly and evenly with a higher coverage effect. Ultra-fine, un-cut hair tips allow smoother application in comparison to synthetic brushes, and higher coverage compared to sponge applicators. Natural 18 also allows freedom in sculpting foundation dimensionally, so you can achieve a professional level makeup finish.”

Available: September 2008

I really want the Rhombus ones! I can’t really tell you why, but I’m so drawn to them. Will I pick up a pair? Very, very doubtful! At $95 a pop, these are a bit steep for me. But what about you?

Wing A messenger of hope

“These lashes were created with the concept of the eye becoming a dove, the delicate minature wings give the eyes an expression of bewilderment, enchantment. The mind wanders and airborne, a messenger of hope.” — Viktor & Rolf
