Shu Styling by Shu Uemura at QVB, Sydney

Christmas is creeping up on me and I am feeling the festivity.

I was lucky to have recently been invited to attend a make-over at Shu Uemura's Boutique in the QVB. Lovely Liz asked me what kind of look I wanted to create... boy, I umm-ed and uhh-ed for a good minute. I wear a LOT of neutrals and initially wanted to opt for a neutral work-appropriate look.

It wasn't long for me to throw that idea out the door and agreed to do an orange look with a dewy base.

My makeover started off by removing the small amount of foundation I had on for the day with Shu Uemura's Cleansing Oil, and proceed with a full skincare routine using Shu Uemura's Tsuya Skincare range. The products were beautiful and smelt incredible.

Shu Umeura's Cosmic Blossom Eye and Cheek Palette was selected for me. I was quite hesitant when I saw the bright orange eye shadow and it's earthy red neighbour. However once my applied I was stunned by how much I liked it, it was really quite natural and work-appropriate!!! I was so glad that this palette was selected for me because I would never consider trying this palette if I didn't get a little bit of encouragement.

I am in love with Shu Uemura x Murakami range, apparently so is my boyfriend... he is a big fan of Murakami's art, so much that he forced me to give him the little Murakami signature flower attached on my Shu lash curler!!

Below I have a couple of unedited and unfiltered full faced look, please excuse the cheesy smile.

If you would like to get your beauty on this festive season, head over to Shu at David Jones or QVB! I've included their service menu above for your reference. This is especially good if you have a night out and wanted to get some shopping done at the same time! A MASSIVE thanks to Shu Uemura and SHAPR team for having me!!
