BDJ BOX AND SHU UEMURA’S “ART OF BEAUTY” BEAUTY SOIREE: The Art of Contouring

Hello there! A little over a week ago I posted the event notice to BDJ Box’s and Shu Uemura’s Beauty Soiree entitled “Art of Beauty”. This was held on Shu Uemura in Shangri La Plaza last Saturday, July 26,2014. As posted the bellas have two things that we may learn, the Art of Contouring or Dramatic Eye Makeup Application. And being the adventurous cat that I am I would like to attend both! Hahaha. So I was so glad to get Edleen’s reply and was bouncing for joy when she told me that I COULD ATTEND BOTH! WOOOT! After sending back my confirmation, she replied with the names and numbers of my friends who would like to join the Art of Contouring and I instantly thought of 4 bellas all of whom attended both events! ^-^ Anyway I arrived 20 minutes before the 1PM call time for the first workshop that would start by 1:30 PM but that’s fine with me since it gives me enough time to catch my breath, chose the best seats to take my pictures on and take pictures! So here’s the place before the event. There’s just many colors everywhere I look which in turn makes me feel happy!

Joyce then used Shu Uemura’s Depsea which is actually a moisturizer sourced originally from volcanic hot springs 2,000m below the sea surface to offer the ultimate purity. It not only cleanses the skin but also moisturizes it while getting it ready for makeup.

With the contouring a brown eyeshadow was used.

  • You can use eyeshadow too provided that it is matte. You wouldn’t want to have glitters all over your contours right?
  • You can also use othe rmakeup like liquid or powder foundation provided that it is 2-3 shades darker. My friend recommends Max Factor’s Creme Puff for this.

Afterwards we played around! By play I meant tried on the many products Shu Uemura has to offer. I myself tried the UV Under Base and it was the first time for me to use a mousse type primer. It was really nice, easy to use and a small amount really goes a long way.

A snack of pastries, sausage bites and stringbeans covered in bacon was served. Thank you BDJ Box and Shu Uemura!
