Date: February 20 Venue: Shiseido (Bloomingdale’s – 59th Street)
Shiseido celebrates Chinese New Year with celebrity makeup artist Setsuko Suzuki. The Vera Wang NYFW backstage darling tells JGB Editor current beauty trends in Japan include bold eyes with bright lips. Brown eyeshadow is really big now, as is extended eyeliner and floral lip colors in red, rose or pink.
In prepping the face, Setsuko’s assistant applied a skin cleansing oil, followed by an immune-fighting face serum and topped with a hydrating face lotion. To protect the eyes an intensive eye cream was tapped into the eye area, before sealing the face with an SPF primer and BB cream.
For makeup application, Setsuko perfected the eyes with eye zone corrector and added definition to the brows with a natural brow pencil. Eyes were brightened with a pigmented luminescent brownish-lavender cream eyeshadow and added definition with warm, satin tones from the trio palette, before eyes were rimmed in black smudge-proof eyeliner and finished with a few coats of mascara. Cheeks were sun-kissed with a three-dimensional blusher before finishing with a sealant face powder. In keeping with the existing lip color, Setsuko filled in lips with a pinkish nude lip liner and transfer-resistant lipstick in a similar hue.
Courtesy of The Shiseido Team, gift bag included a perfecting mascara, future solution lx face serum, a cleansing oil, dome-shaped natural fiber mini concealer brush, complimentary facial gift card, heart-shaped stress ball, and metallic, woven makeup bag.
