shu uemura x maison kitsune

shu uemura x maison kitsune! Edgy Japanese artistry makeup brand shu uemura is known for its artistic collaborations. Remember last year’s limited edition collection by Karl Lagerfeld’s cat? This year, the brand looks to fashion for inspiration with a limited edition collection with contemporary fashion brand Maison Kitsune. There is an “East meets West” theme throughout the products and packaging. So you’ll see little icons that reference French life and those that illustrate Japanese culture. What I like about it is the colour selection is really wearable. Here is a look at shu uemura for Holiday 2015.

  1. Outline the eye with a drawing pencil. Create a thin line close to the rims and thicker in the center.
  2. When closing your eyes, create gradation with the eyeshadow palette using shades 1 to 3 (identified in the palette). Apply shade #1 close to the eyeline. Bend blend in shade #2 and then 3 to create gradation towards the upper edge of the eyelid. Use your drawing pencil to draw a line from the edge of the eye to the upper eye rim.
  3. Repeat the colour gradation below the eyes using the same steps. Use a drawing pencil to complete the coloured wing accent.
  4. Apply cheek colour at the uppermost part of the cheekbone just under the eye in a round shape. Gradually blend into the skin in a downward motion.
