Makeup of the Day: Green on Asian Eyes

Today’s makeup of the day is how to wear green on Asian eyes, and also a review on shu uemura’s pressed eyeshadows. Pardon for the recent rave on shu because I have received quite a lot of palettes (some obsolete, some catalogue products) during the recent office move! (Thank youuuuuuu shu!) 😀
Let’s get into the makeup look without further ado! Presenting the pressed eyeshadows from L-R:
P520 light green – pearlescent pale green
ME580 – satin forest green
ME471 – satin olive taupe
ME996 – metallic brown-toned deep grey
(Note: white case is no longer available, only black case is retailing)


I have always been a fan of Urban Decay’s eyeshadows as the brand is known for its buttery smooth quality of eyeshadows, hence I was rather skeptical about other brands. Ever since I joined shu uemura as an intern, I have been falling in love with shu’s eyeshadows! I can’t say that every eyeshadow I came across from shu’s are really great quality but I must say that their metallics are amazing! Love how the eyeshadows are really pigmented and they do not crease on me. Do note that their silk smooth eyeshadows do crease on oily lids, which is rather disappointing since they are rather creamy.

Each pressed eyeshadow refill is 1.4g for S$22, and are sold individually white the eyeshadow case is separately sold at S$22. Swatches below:

Using an eyeshadow brush, pat P520 light green all over the lid, followed by applying ME580 to the outer corners of the lids, blending into the light green base. Remember to smudge the green to the lower lash line too. After which, blend ME471 to the crease (use your brush to push your lid into your eye socket, that’s where the crease lies) to deepen the colours. To further intensify the colour, apply ME996 to the outer V of the eyelid to smoke out the green and tada, there you have your green eyes look:

Lipstick used here is YSL’s Rouge Volupte in 15 Corail Intuitive.
(Pardon for the cakey face due to a whole day of wearing makeup and bad lighting!)

Hope you enjoyed this look and be daring to express your mood through your eye makeup! 🙂 Till then!

Create yourself and be gorgeous, girls! ♡
XOXO
