SHILLS Aqua Skin Moisturizing Spray

A 30-something from sunny Singapore who's tried her hand at lots of things, such as selling skin care & make-up, working in a (boring) corporate setting, trying to carve a singing career, giving private tuition, being a fitness instructor, writing/editing etc...

Besides exasperating her parents to no end, she loves experimenting with new make-up looks, uncovering the best make-up & skin care products, modelling for herself before the camera, singing at the top of her lungs (with preferably no one to hear it), and writing whatever, whenever (as you can already tell).

Recreating The Shu Uemura Morphorium Look

I’ve finally updated this blog entry to include the make-up steps of how I attained the look you see in the pics below.
Scroll down for how I did it!

Heya, remember the post I did: Make-Up Wish List, where I talked about bettering my eyeshadow application skills?

You would remember this (why is her neck so long?):
Shu Uemura Morphorium Spring/Summer 2011

I’m really excited cos I think I achieved the look!

At first I couldn’t get it at all. The effect was completely blah:

Then I hit upon the idea of wetting my brush to apply the colours:

Yes, I admit I wore falsies for the wet eyeshadow but LOOK AT THE SHEER DIFFERENCE!

Some more piccies to whet (pun intended) your appetite:

Now for some close-ups:

Curious how I achieved this look?

What I used to get this look
Nope, I did not use the Shu Uemura Morphorium Blue palette to get this look. Rather, I used 2 eyeshadow palettes from Stila’s Holiday Collection 2010, the Colour Wheel Palette & the Eye for Colour Palette:

From the Colour Wheel Palette, I used turquoise for the centre lid, purple for the inner & outer eye corners as well as an eyeliner, and gold for brow bone highlights.

From the Eye for Colour palette, I blended blue green and green to get a gradation from the turquoise outwards towards the eyebrows.

I took care to blend the edges where the colours met, but not too much as I did want each colour to still stand out on its own. After the blending, I went over each colour again, just to make sure the individual colours popped!

P.S. Although the eyeshadows are the main focus of this post, I used DOT-DOT Stylish Auto Eye(brow) in Sweet Brown for my eyebrows and DOT-DOT White Luminance Sunscreen Powder SPF 30 to set my foundation. Reviews of those comin’ up real soon! 😉
