Shu Uemura Spring 2014 "Singing Forest" Tutorial

Hey guys!!! Today I have a spring makeup tutorial from my Shu Uemura Spring 2014 "Singing Forest" look!  You will find step by step instructions on how to achieve this look! 

Let's Start!

1.  Before I start, I applied an eyeshadow primer over my lids.  Then using the  eyeshadow spiral duo in beige brown, I applied the white/beige shadow all over my lids using a small fluffy shadow brush.  

2.  I also applied the same shadow along my lower lash line. 

3.  Now using my green Singing Forest shadow platte that includes the colors : G GOLDME432M434P461 .... I'm going to apply M434 which is a light pastel green shadow on my crease.  For an everyday natural spring look you can stop right here and just line your eyes!

4.  I also applied the same green shadow on my inner corners.

 5.  Using the same green shadow palette, I used the color P461 (which is an olive green color) on my outer corner and blend it nicely!

6.  With my Black Painting Liner gel eyeliner, I lined my eyes and winged it out long.  I stopped at where my eyebrow ends.  

7.  I applied the same dark olive green color on the outer corner of my lower lash line.  I used a small shadow brush to apply it.

 8.  Apply mascara and false lashes!  I put on the shu uemura mika mini neo star-glitz fake eyelashes .  They are really cute with yellow and pink hair... and also star embellishments on it!

8.  Last using the tint in gelato Fantasy Orange Lip and Cheek Color, apply this gorgeous bright orange tint on your lips.  It's super pigmented and has a glossy finish!

9.  Apply the same thing onto the cheeks as a blusher!  I applied a small amount (as shown in the picture) and just blended it with my fingers!  It blends super nicely and gives a nice healthy glow to my face!

Here is the FINAL LOOK!!!!  Hope you guys enjoyed this tutorial!!!

Friend's Bachelorette Party!

Hey guys!!! It's been so long since I updated you guys with what's going on in my life!  I'm still very sick from morning sickness =(.  My doctor prescribed me some morning sickness medicine, but it's not helping that much.  Last Saturday, I went to my friend's bachelorette party!  Good thing I was feeling KIND OF okay this day.  I was friend's with her since 9th grade~~ 14-15 years!  First I stopped by the mall to pick up a gift.  I got a really cute "BRIDE" top from Victoria Secret with a matching underwear!  As soon as we all arrived in our meeting spot, we rode the limo and headed to DragonFly for dinner.  Inside the limo, she opened up all her gifts from the bridesmaids.  I'm glad she really liked my gift!

Shu Uemura Spring 2014 "Singing Forest"

Hey guys!!!!!!  I got to do another fun collaboration with Shu Uemura!  This time I got to work with their new "Spring 2014 Forbidden Fruits Collection" along with other bloggers Xsparkage, Raeview, and Purzebuzz.  Shu Uemura teamed up with with the Japanese photographer and film director, Mika Ninagawa.  She created four difference exclusive images and package designs, which I was part of the "Singing Forest" (green).  As soon as I received this collection, I immediately fell in love with the colorful packaging and the bright product colors.  I've never really worn green eyeshadows before, so I had a lot of fun creating different looks with this beautiful green shadow palette.  The Singing Forest images reminds me of nature, flowers, and spring.  Green and orange colors are a huge trend for Spring 2014.

The eyeshadows included in the four color eyeshadow palette are : G GOLD, ME432, M434, P461.
I've always been a fan of Shu Uemura eyeshadows because they are so soft, pigmented, and creamy.  My top favorite colors from this palette is the gold and the olive green color.  The gold color is very glittery and shimmery. It's a great color to use to apply on your lower lash line or corners to brighten up your eyes.  The yellowish gold color and the light green color is great to use as an all over base color, and the dark olive green color is great to use on the outer v area to create a more dramatic smokey look.
The eyeshadow spiral duo in beige brown is a very unique and beautiful eyeshadow palette.  It consist of two colors : a whitish tan color and a brown color.  You can mix the colors and keep blending to get a range of colors from white to light beige and light brown to medium brown.  These shadows are also very glittery and shimmery.

I would have to say that top favorite products from this collection is the tint in gelato Fantasy Orange Lip and Cheek Color and the Black Painting Liner gel eyeliner.  I don't own a lot of lip stains because I always thought they are not as pigmented and moisturizing, but I was wrong!  This looks beautiful on the lips.  It has a dewy finish, very moisturizing, highly pigmented, and leaves a nice stain (very long lasting).  It also looks great on the cheeks!  At first I thought it will leave a dark spot on the cheeks and not blend easily since it was so pigmented on the lips, but NO!  It blends so nicely.  I just applied some on my finger tips and blended it onto the checks in circular motions.  It's very semi-matte with a natural sheen finish.  It makes my face glow and look very healthy!

The Mika Nail Stickers are also super cute too!  It's mainly red with floral designs on it.  I'm not really into manicures lately since I'm constantly washing bottles and dishes, so a sticker is something that I would definitely put on whenever I go out somewhere.  The stickers were kind of big for my nails, but I cut it so that it fits perfectly.

 mika mini neo star-glitz fake eyelashes are super cute!  It has pink and yellow strands with sparkly silver stars on it.  I love how they are half lashes so it's not too dramatic on the eyes.  I did create a look using these eyelashes, which will be up on my blog sometime this month!  

The last part of the collection is the Mika for Shu Skin Refining Cleansing Oil.  It's an anti-dullness cleansing oil so it removes harmful pollutants that cause your skin to age.  It's great for sensitive and all skin types.  It also removes all my makeup (including super waterproof mascara).  It doesn't smell that great, but it does a great job on cleansing my face so it doesn't really matter! haha

My collection will be available from April 21-April 27
