Tutorial: Shu Uemura Abracadabra Fantasy Inspired Look

Source: http://www.shuuemura-usa.com/_us/_en/collections/seasonal/holiday_2010/index.aspx

I know I have not been doing tutorials for awhile... and so finally... here it is! For those readers who have been waiting for my video tutorials... I will try to upload one next week or so... I have quite a few workshops to attend and some pointless paperwork to finish!! SIGH~

Anyway, I really like the Shu Uemura Christmas Collection, especially the eyeshadow palettes. As you guys know, I already bought the peace & harmony mini brush set, and was undecided about the Reindeer Kiss xxx Palette. After rummaging through my makeup stash, I finally decided not to get it... and to do a similar look with what I already have!

Ta-dah~! My Shu Uemura Abracadabra Fantasy Inspired Look!!


Here's the eyeshadow I used:


silver, shimmery turquoise-ish blue (I will call it 'tur-blue' in my tutorial steps), pastel matte blue

THE STEPS:

1. Apply eyeshadow primer all over your eyelids.

2. Apply a silver eyeshadow over a large area of your eyelids.

3. Brush on a matte pastel blue over your crease. When you open your eyes, you should see the blue a little above the line of your crease.

4. Using a small blending brush, blend a small amount of tur-blue at the outer corner of your eyelids.

5. Apply the tur-blue to the 3/4 of your lower lash line. Then, apply silver to the inner corners of your eyes.

6. Frame your eyes with a black pencil eyeliner. Draw the line all the way to your tear ducts.

7. Apply black mascara. Don't forget your lower lashes!

8. Apply false eyelashes. Choose a design that has more length and volume. Curl your lashes to combine your natural and false lashes together.

9. Apply blush tint and shimmery powder to your cheeks.

10. Apply baby pink lipstick and pink lipgloss (preferably without shimmer to create that barbie doll lips).

DONE!
