Holiday Lookbook: Shu Uemura 2011

The holiday season is such a fun time for makeup because the packaging is always interesting and beautiful. The colours are sparkling and bold. Holiday parties are a fun time to experiment with some colour! Think outside the typical smokey eye or red lip. Shu Uemura's holiday collection is a great example of how to use some bold yet wearable colours. 

This season Shu Uemura teamed up with internationally renowned film director, War Kong Wai, to create some exciting eye palettes and lip shades. The palettes also feature a cool hologram! While the blue palette was gorgeous, I was immediately drawn to the purple palette. It features 4 shadows, 1 highlighter, and 1 cream blush that can also be used on the lips. The colour payoff is fantastic as usual and you have the option of creating many different looks. If you want something more subtle, use the gold across the lid and apply the cream blush a little heavier on the cheeks and lips. A purple smokey eye will definitely take the original version up a notch. This is definitely a palette to have fun with!

I love this palette, but I think the colours are a bit too bright for me personally.
