Celestial Garden by Shu Uemura

5 Apr

I am loving Shu Uemura’s Summer 2012 Collection called Celestial Garden 🙂

"The world above the clouds, surrounded by overflowing positive energy, full of colors and full of light.
The same scenery, the same world can look so different, if seen with all your senses full open.
Unchain yourself, play with the colors, enjoy make-up, and above all enjoy precious moments that exist in your life."

When I got my collection, I immediately fell in love with these creamy dome blushers!  They are so easy to apply.  I literally just color them on my cheeks for an instant rosy glow 🙂

Check out these two pretty shades perfect for the summer!  Fairy Pink and Sunlight Peach 🙂

There are three different palettes in the collection.  I love them all 🙂 Don’t be afraid to use some pop of color in the eyes. They’re very subtle 🙂

Love the packaging 🙂

Eyeshadow Trio Scent 🙂 The color code from top to bottom is S1, S2 and S3 🙂 I'll be using S2 (orange) for highlighting on Isabel. You'll see the photos later on 🙂

This palette is called Eyeshadow Trio Air. The color code for this palette from top to bottom is A1, A2 and A3. A2 will be my main color for Isabel's eyes 🙂

The third palette is called Eyeshadow Trio Light. Color code from top to bottom is L1, L2 and L3. I will be using L3 on Isabel's inner corner of the eyes 🙂

Here's the jumbo eye crayon in Misty Brown (left) and Earthy Brown (right). This may be used as an eyeshadow or eyeliner on the lower lash line for a subtle smokey eye 🙂

Ultimate Natural Mascara in Dark Brown.

Lippies in Angelic Pink (left) and Darling Beige (right).

Lovely lip glosses in Corona Orange (top) and Blooming Pink (bottom).

Angel Wink for the lower lashes 🙂

I love doing makeovers on my friends. hehe And one Sunday afternoon, I decided to try out these great products on one of my best friends and partner-in-crime, Isabel 🙂  She hardly wears makeup so I was careful to make this summer look on her as subtle and light as possible 🙂

Here is Isabel with absolutely no makeup on 🙂 She's beautiful as it is! Lucky Isabel 🙂 I will never have my photo taken without makeup 🙂 Haha!

I just applied a little concealer under Isabel's eyes and a thin layer of liquid foundation to even out the skin tone 🙂 Also applied some lip balm to prep for the lippie 🙂

Applied the Fairy Pink Creamy Dome Blusher on Isabel's cheeks. This is best applied directly on the skin without any powder or foundation.

I used three different colors on Isabel's eyes. I applied the purple eyeshadow (A2) from Palette Air all over the lid. Used the glittery green shade (L3) from Palette Light for the inner corners of the eyes and the orange shade (S2) from Palette Scent 🙂 Then I used the Darling Beige lippie and the Blooming Pink lip gloss over it.

Here is Isabel with a fresh summery face and loving it! 🙂

So many possibilities using the Celestial Garden collection! 🙂 Have fun with it! Enjoy wherever you’ll be this summer, guys!

      Hi Dom! 🙂 It suits Isabel noh?! 🙂 I made it very subtle because Isabel doesn’t like heavy makeup. hahaha! 🙂 But this perfectly suits her and I’m sure it will suit you, too! 🙂 Is Shu Uemura popular in China? 🙂
