    Shu Uemura Reminds Me that Spring is on the Way

    With snowstorms in March here in Montreal, I have a really hard time believing spring is on its way. Luckily, Shu Uemura has sent me amazing samples of their spring collection recently and so far it seems to be doing the trick. I have become super obsessed with the Sunset Gold Limited Edition Palette ($85). With bronze and brown sunset tones, this summery palette gives my eyes a chic shimmering glow while the soft pink blush highlights my cheekbones perfectly. It’s the ideal summer look plus, it really lasts all day long. At the end of the day, it still looks like I just applied it. It’s the perfect little luxury to spoil yourself with this season.

    As usual, when I go heavy on the eye makeup, I like to take it easy on the lips. I am absolutely in love with Rouge Unlimited Lipstick ($31), which is available in two summer-friendly shades: a soft pink and sweet apricot. These lip colours are spring and summer-ready because they’re light, natural and the perfect complement to a bronze shimmer on the eyes. I totally love.

    And to make sure you get the rest of your makeup to stay in place all day long, I like to go with the Limited Edition UV Under Base Mousse Sakura Collection by Mika Ninagawa ($48). It gives the skin a natural and healthy-looking glow while keeping your makeup in tact. Plus, don’t even pretend you’re not totally in love with this canister? It’s so pretty!

    Shu Uemura is available at Holt Renfrew.

    Shu Uemura has finally hit Montreal

    As I mentioned, I went to the opening of the Shu Uemura counter at Holt Renfrew in Montreal last week. The upscale makeup collection is nothing short of impressive. The Tokyo Lash Bar is my favourite part about the beauty counter. When you purchase a pair of flase lashes, a makeup artist will apply them for free so you can head out for the evening with them. Plus, they’re reusable.

    I walked away with a goodie bag that contained some of Shu Uemura‘s best products and I just love them. My first fave is the red Matte Cream Lipstick. I’m really into red lips this year but it’s really hard to find a shade that suits my skin tone. I believe there’s a red for everyone and mine is from Shu Uemura. It’s a creamy lipstick and the shade isn’t as intense as it looks. It lightly stains my lips with red for a totally sexy pout.

    I also like the High Performance Balancing Cleansing Oil. I have dry/combination skin so I’m not sure how it would work for extra dry or oily skins, but I really like this product. It’s an oil-based cleaner that hydrates the skin without leaving it with a greasy film. It really gives a deep feeling of clean.

    If you’re planning on heading downtown to check out the counter, pick yourself up the eylash curler while you’re there. One word: AMAZING!
