Anna and I decided to attend the Shu Uemura x Maison Kitsuné seminar at The Bay (aka Hudson’s Bay Company) in Yorkdale Mall. It was an event featuring holiday makeup techniques using Shu Uemura’s new holiday collection in collaboration with French-Japanese fashion brand, Maison Kitsuné. These looks fused popular Western and Japanese makeup styles for a trendy but natural holiday look.
Here’s a close-up of my favourite product in this range!
The best example of this fusion between east and west was the pairing of high cheek blush (which is popular amongst youth on the streets of Tokyo) with the French smokey eye. Instead of having the blush on the apples of the cheek, it is applied either on or above the cheekbones – a bit closer to the eyes.
For people who want a softer and more natural look, they can opt for the winged eye look using eyeshadow pencil and powder.
Enjoy the photos!
