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.
