Training with Mister Kimura-San and Team Shu

8 Nov

Learning never ends.

  I was so looking forward to this day.  It was the day when we would finally get to try using Shu Uemura’s Holiday collection 2012! 🙂  Not only do we get to try the newest collection of Shu Uemura but we also had a talented guest makeup artist/trainer from Japan, Mr. Kimura-San! 🙂

I just couldn’t wait to see the collection!!! 🙂

My sister from another mother, Claire 🙂  We were both so giddy with excitement checking out all the goodies in the bag! 🙂  First thing we found… the two kinds Karl Lagerfeld False Eyelashes.

What a beauty! 🙂

With my sisters, Angelique, Omar and John! 🙂  Sayaaaaaa!  Parang blockmates lang!!! Where were you guys when I was in college?!?!

Checking out the stuff at the trainer’s table 🙂

And now I unveil Shu Uemura x Karl Lagerfeld Holiday Collection 🙂  I’m sure you guys have already seen or even tried the collection since our launch.  Mr. Kimura-San taught us how to use and maximize this collection! 🙂

Check this out!!! Limited edition Mon Shu eyelash curler!!! 🙂 soooo cute!!! I want to use this as a bag charm!  And also so I can curl my lashes anytime. LOL!

Yey! Snacks for the training 🙂  Hungry makeup artists… not a pretty sight. Hahaha!

And now, may I introduce to you, our awesome trainer and makeup artist, Mr. Kimura-San! 🙂 Such a rock star. Haha! 🙂

The first time I’ve ever seen the team so quiet and attentive 🙂 hehehehe

We each had our own models for hands-on training 🙂 Thanks for taking my photo, Claire!

My model for the day was Mercy.  Just finished doing her base 🙂

Mr. Kimura-San going around to check our work.  He was a great teacher, very helpful and was very patient to answer all of our questions 🙂 Of course, we can’t live without Nadia, our translator 🙂

After doing the base makeup, time to break for merienda first! Woohoo! 🙂 Break na kaagad?! Hehe

Definitely one way to make us makeup artists happy… FOOD 🙂

Okay, ready to move on with the training… Happy tummies!

Mr. Kimura-San will now start the demo using the first eye and cheek palette called the smoky velvet palette 🙂

He started with the socket line…

Then filled the whole lid with the olive green shade.

Also applied under the eyes and highlight on the browbone and inner corners of the eyes.

Blended beautifully.  He told us that we don’t have to use all the colors in the palette all at once or it’s just going to look messy.

Mr. Kimura-San used the blush on the apple of the cheeks.  That’s the one on the bottom right of the palette 🙂

Included in this collection are four gorgeous shades of lipsticks!

Luxe Burgundy and Parisienne Pink.

Celebrity Beige and Mon Shu Red.

Mr. Kimura-San is now applying Mon Shu Red 🙂

The Associates checking out the first look 🙂

And John… with his favorite brush! Hahahahaha! 🙂

And now using the prestigious bordeaux eye and cheek palette 🙂

Love the color of this painting liner 🙂

Now it’s our turn 🙂

Mr. Kimura-San fine-tuning what I did to Mercy 🙂

So happy with the palettes!  Easy to use and the colors definitely suitable to most women! 🙂  Can’t wait to use these palettes on my clients! 🙂
