With London Fashion Week only a few days away I've started pulling together my handbag essentials for primping and preening on the go. A recent discovery for me is beauty brand Shiseido. This clean, luxurious beauty range is a fusion of Japanese knowledge and colour creation from Make Up Artist Dick Page. The products are simple and work.
- The 70s Smokey Eye -
This is easy to achieve and perfect for looking groomed day or night, whether it's Fashion Week or not. The new smokey eye is softer in browns rather than greys. Apply a flick of black eyeliner and then reach for this magic pot of Shimmering Cream Eye Colour. Use a clean finger to smudge on a little colour starting at the outside corner then blending in. The cream turns to a soft powder finish and stays put! The shimmer sounds off-putting however it is more a sheen and looks really modern. Add a sweep of Shiseido's strong black Full Lash Volume Mascara to finish.
- The Spring Fresh Nude -
I love the glossy, hardly there beauty look and it takes more time than it looks. I'm completely addicted to Shiseido's Perfect Hydrating BB Cream which includes SPF 30. The colour glides on and covers blemishes. After getting the perfect base use this pretty peach Luminizing Satin Eye Colour Trio to get a nude eye. The pallet has three colours, a nude, a sheer pink and a darker mink. Brush the nude all over the eyelid to cote then add the pink on the outside third and blend. Use the mink as a liner on the outside corner using the tiny applicator. Finish with mascara.
Im not usually a gloss girl as I hate that sticky feeling however this Lacquer Gloss is soft and covers more like a sheer lipstick. The neutral shades in the collection are ideal for swiping on daily. This little pot isn't leaving my side this weekend. Now let the fun begin!
