A Day with Kouno-San from Shu Uemura, Japan

4 Dec

Kouno-San visited Manila recently to give us makeup associates of Shu Uemura, Philippines, a one-day intensive training on how to use Shu Uemura’s Holiday collection by Wong Kar Wai πŸ™‚ Behind us is Miss Yumi, our wonderful interpreter πŸ™‚

This is the gorgeous collection by Wong Kar Wai πŸ™‚

Kouno-San doing a demo on how to use these wonderful palettes.

Kouno-San used his ring finger to apply the pigment with glitter.

These palettes are great to create a soft smokey eye look in either blue or purple. Β Lovely πŸ™‚

Finish it off with these fab lashes! πŸ™‚ Achieve this soft rosy natural glow on the cheeks using the cream blush which is also included in the palettes.

After a quick lunch break, Kouno-San had time to teach us Mr. Shu Uemura’s first mode makeup collection, “flaggy”, a revolutionary concept in makeup design and artistic expression.

Kouno-San’s “flaggy”, eyes closed. Β He demonstrated without the white areas. We just didn’t have enough time 😦

Kouna-San’s “flaggy” eyes open πŸ™‚

After an hour of a whole lot of concentration, here’s my “flaggy” πŸ™‚

With my model πŸ™‚ Told her never to erase my “flaggy”. haha! πŸ™‚

It was a great day πŸ™‚ Was very happy to have met Kouno-San and hearing stories about Mr. Shu Uemura. Β It’s always great to attend trainings like these. Β Learning just never ends. Β And I was with the company of my friends and colleagues from Shu Uemura, Philippines. Here is Kouno-San with one of my good friends, John Pagaduan-San, looking so handsome in his black suit! πŸ™‚ John is an accredited artist of Shu Uemura. Love ya, Sis! πŸ™‚
