More Christmas Makeup Looks

Can you already smell Christmas? It’s just a mere 5 days away… OMG, I’m so excited just soaking up the festive atmosphere. One of the things I love about Christmas are the different makeup collections and themes which these cosmetic brands come up with. Looks like most are going for that princessy look this 2013 which is rather befitting for a magical occasion like Christmas.

 In my previous blog entry, I had shared the Etude House & Laura Mercier theme for 2013. Right now, let’s take a look at Shu Uemura & Takashi Murakami’s collaboration.

Back to Salon De Choix for A New Color!

I was so busy getting back on track that I didn’t have time to do my hair last month. So here I am again, back at Salon De Choix for a new hair color.

One of the current trends for hair color now is lighter shade on the top while the bottom is darker. It’s like the total opposite from previous seasons where there was much emphasis on flash or artificial hair color such as pastels or bright shades which you would never see in nature. Now, the trends are going back to nature, so picture this… all the healthy rich browns, reds, coppers and blondes.

So I got to try out this latest trend but in different colors… check it out:

So that’s why you see my hair is all bunched up in this below photo. It’s how my hair looks like after the top part of my hair is being separated in a four-leaf clover section.

 As usual, I had a trim and hair treatment done too. My hair feels so much tidier and lighter now. I used to not go for trims but now I understand why regular trims are so important. When your hair grows, it can grow out of shape or your ends get so damaged and causes your whole hair to look really just messy and unkempt.

I had Argan oil added into my hair mask. If you have read my previous blog entries on Argan oil, you would know that this is the liquid gold from Morocco. It not only saved my tummy from stretch marks but it is also good for the hair. You can restore strength and shine in your hair with this miracle oil. After I had this hair mask done, my hair felt silky smooth and had no tangles at all. To end things off, Elein applied Shu Uemura’s Art of Hair products for me. The nourishing fragrance had a lovely vanilla scent!


I’m loving it soooooo much!!!

I think I look refreshed and neater now.

My hair is much more manageable and healthy-looking.

Karl Lagerfeld for shu uemura: the BIRTH of mon shu girl

Mon Shu girl is Karl Lagerfeld’s creation for shu uemura and is named “mon shu uemura” which means my darling shu uemura in French. Below is Karl Lagerfeld’s sketch – created entirely by shuuemura products!


Here’s her introduction to the world:

“Bonjour! Hello! Konichiwa! I am mon shu girl, Karl Lagerfeld was so inspired by shu uemura and Japanese manga, he created me. I am on a mission to bring beauty to girls all around the world! Lately, I’ve been curious and eager to pop out the atelier of Karl.”

Take a look at mon shu girl’s birth right here on this YouTube Video.

The entire collection is a touching homage to shu uemura with the color selection and package design entirely directed by Karl Lagerfeld who also photographed the visual campaign. The delightful “mon shu girl” collection is a celebration of Japanese pop and European chic.

An optimistic ode to beauty and fashion “mon shu girl” is an icon of contemporary cuteness born from Karl Lagerfeld’s personal brand of European finesse and shu uemura’s Tokyo flair-a festive and fun gift to you for the 2012 holiday!

Shu Uemura 135th autumn/winter collection – Chocolat-donna

Introducing the latest shu uemura makeup collection:

Chocolat-donna, shu uemura 135th autumn/winter collection

Like a box of delightful chocolates, the eye shadow palettes come in 3 different ‘flavours’.

Mint & Vanilla

Raspberry & Mocha

Orange & Pistachio

Did you know that chocolate protects your skin? The type of antioxidants called flavonoids found in dark chocolate offer some protection from UV damage from the sun. While it does not mean you can skip sunscreen, using shu uemura’s latest chocolat donna will nevertheless make you feel good on the inside while looking good on the outside!

 The 2012 shu uemura autumn/winter collection “chocolat-donna” is inspired by the bitter sweet indulges of chocolate! The selection of eye shadow palettes, glow on (blushes) and rouge from this collection creates earthly matt yet romantic looks.

Palettes available in August 2012 at Shu Uemura Counters islandwide.
