Dude. I have feathers on my lashes. These are absolutely the craziest lashes I’ve ever worn (the tutus from last year — also from shu uemura — are a close second). I thought it might be fun to do a look using the shu uemura Chocolat-Donna collection (reviews, photos and swatches here). This is a great collection if you like to play with makeup. I love how the Orange & Pistachio palette can bring beautiful dimension to the eyes.
Swatches: Orange & Pistachio Palette — shades #1, #2, #3, #4, #5, #6
Get the Look
For the eyes, apply #4 all over the lid just past the crease. Apply #5 with a crease brush in the crease, extending the colour out towards the tip of your eyebrows. Blend well. Apply #5 along the lower lash line. Deepen the outer corner of the lid with #6, and blend into #5. Next, prime the lid and lower lash line with a sticky glitter primer (LA Splash Eyeshadow Sealer/Base). Apply the #1 glitter all over the lid avoiding the crease and outer V. With a liner brush, pick up more #1 and apply along the lower lash line. Highlight the brow bone with #1. Make the inner corners pop with shade #2.
Line the top and bottom waterlines with black eyeliner (Giorgio Armani Waterproof liner #1), apply mascara to top and bottom lashes. Then apply Choco-lash false eyelashes.
For the cheeks, apply Apricot Glow On blush on the cheekbones.
For the lips, mix an orange and nude beige (MAC Mattene lipsticks in Fashion Nomad and Delectable). Then top with a peach gloss (Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Life’s a Peach).

I love how every now and then, I get reminded about how much I love to play with colours and textures (glitters! feathers!). This is why makeup is so fun. It’s never supposed to be serious. Sometimes you gotta embrace the cray.
