Mon Shu Girl

In a previous post, I showed you the newest collection of Shu Uemura by Karl Lagerfeld. The muse of the collection is the Mon Shu Girl, who I find to completely ADOOORRRBS! <3

 As usual, my awkward self felt camera shy and decided to draw my outfit instead.

 Button-down top: Thrifted, Polka dot skorts: Thrifted, Oversized shirt (worn as dress): Thrifted, Gray tights: SM Department Store, Black wedges: SM Parisian, Quirky sunglasses: (Gift), Camera bag: Nikon.

My interpretation of the Mon Shu girl took inspiration from Madeline-meets-Karl Lagerfeld. Mom said I looked like a choir girl that day. :| :))

So anyway, The fourth lady (from the left) won the best dressed award claiming the P8,000 worth of Shu Uemura products and more. WOOOAHH! Congrats to her!!:)

 Well, have a great week ahead of you! :* I’m gonna have a busy one :s See you at Philippine Fashion Week!! :)

Karl Lagerfeld for Shu Uemura 10/21/2012

My curiosity for the quirky new icon of Shu Uemura pushed me to attend the premiere launch of Karl Lagerfeld’s collection in Alabang Town Center last Sunday. I received a price list of the new collection and a limited edition Mon Shu girl pin upon arrival. I printed out the invitations just because I found them super pretty! Hihi :>

Mon Shu girls and dolls welcomed me into the store! *u* There was a red carpet with models, photographers, food, drinks and freebies the event.

THIS WALL. I CANNOT EVEN. MY FUTURE ROOM WILL HAVE SOMETHING LIKE THIS!!!!!! @_____@

And of course, I checked out the collection! (Pardon the overexposed photo :s)

The collection includes 2 dazzling eyeshadow palettes, a chic liner, 3 classic nail colors, 4 bold lip shades, 2 quirky pairs of eyelashes and more! Call Shu Uemura Rockwell at 945-7322 to make reservations. The official selling of the collection will be on November. :)

Simple Everyday Affordable Makeup

Haven’t done a trial in.. months! Tuhday, I shall show you how to do makeup on a regular day with the most affordable products evaaarrrr! :) 

These are my favorite affordable cosmetics that I use on myself and on my clients:

1. San-San Liquid Base Make-Up in Beige (Roughly Php100 in HBC)

2. San-San Age Defense Concealer in 02 (Roughly Php120 in HBC)

3. Angelique Eyebrow Pencil in Black (Roughly Php15 in HBC)

4. Some random mascara I found (Php88 in Saizen, Market!Market!)

5. G-Lish Lip and Cheek Tint in Pink Crush (Roughly Php100 in Megamall, and I think this was phased-out na HAHAHA)

6. Fashion 21 Two-Way Cake with Papaya Extract in 03 (Roughly Php195)

Total: Roughly Php618!

Kuripot mode? Not bad, not bad.

Here is me without any product:

Although I have other blemishes, the only ones I shall conceal are the ones on my nose and chin as these are the most visible. 

Step 1: I apply liquid foundation (1) just to even out my skin tone, then I apply concealer (2) onto the two spots I mentioned.

Since this is for everyday, you don’t really have to conceal all your blemishes. What you really need to do is just even out the redness etc. Don’t pile on the concealer either because the blemishes will stick out more. IMO, if camera doesn’t see it, you don’t have to conceal it. HAHAHA. Don’t worry about blemishes, they fade in time! 

  • The reason I use San-San is because the liquid foundation doesn’t dry up flaky or patchy and the products mentioned have yellow undertones that even out redness! :)

Step 2: Fill in your brows and line your eyes with the eyebrow pencil (3). Using a regular eyeshadow brush or cotton bud, smudge the line across the lid and under the eye to define it. The line can be seen on the left, while the smudged effect can be seen on the right.

  • I absolutely love Angelique! It’s so pigmented, but it isn’t blotchy, so its really easy to blend. Downer is that I only see it in HBC, and usually, I have to look for it myself because the some salesladies don’t even know they have it. :))

Step 3: Apply mascara (4).

  • Well, for the price (Php88), the mascara I found isn’t bad! If you’re looking for cheap mascara that lengthens, this is it. It isn’t waterproof though, and I can’t assure mascara-sensitive people with the brand or ingredients because it’s in Japanese. :))

Step 5: Apply the lip & cheek tint onto..well, your lips and cheeks. ;) :))

The great thing about using a liquid base is that these kinds of tints can be easily blended!:)

  • I love this product ah. Thank you, Abbie G. <3 I have this in 3 colors: nude, pink and red. Since they’re creamy/glossy, they’re easy to blend, and are less likely to end up concentrated. Downer is that they could become a bit streaky if you have really oily skin. 

Step 6 (optional): If you have oily skin, like me, brush over a layer of powder foundation (6) to keep the tint in place! :)

  • For affordable, yellowish-undertone foundation, I use Fashion21. They’re actually pretty nifty for oily skin. I also like San-San, but their shades are pretty light. 

AAAAAAAAAND there you have it! Compare:

Harhar. 

Remember that make-up can only cover so much, so don’t pile it on + The people who matter won’t be too critical on your looks, so don’t be too hard on yourself, okay?

I hope that helped you out <3 Til next time! MMMWAAAHHH :* <3
