The secret to the season’s hottest looks? Makeup that leaves your skin as smooth as a petal.
Pairing a smooth and translucent complexion with a bold pout is a winning formula, regardless of the occasion. The key to this look is a good foundation that will give you the perfect canvas for your makeup.
For skin as smooth as a delicate flower petal, check out Shu Uemura’s newly launched Petal Skin Fluid Foundation. It provides medium to full coverage for a poreless appearance, and a semi-matte finish with a soft natural glow.
“I wanted to create a foundation that rediscovers everyone’s innate ideal skin, skin that looks like the parts of your skin that have been unexposed; smooth with beautiful, natural transparency,” says Yuji Asano, Shu Uemura’s international chief makeup artist and product designer.
K-Beauty’s new ombre lips
This just-sucked-on-a-strawberry-lollipop lips is a super cute take on ombre lips. To achieve this look, Sophia Chia from Shu Uemura suggests applying Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Supreme Matte Lipstick in BG934 on the entire lips as a base – this is to even out your lip tone.
Next, apply Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Supreme Matte Lipstick in CR345 to the inner side of your lips, then gently dab and blend it out towards the outer edge of your lips. The intensity should be strongest on the inner side, for a subtle just-bitten look.
TIP: “For a smooth complexion, blend two pumps of Petal Skin Fluid Foundation on your palm with the Petal 55 Foundation Brush, then glide the brush gently from the side of the nose to the side of the ear. Accentuate the cheekbones by tapping the brush on the area with the remaining foundation.” Sophia Chia, trainer for Shu Uemura Singapore.
