Makeup done well is nothing less than art. Eyeshadow done well is amazing. Whenever I see someone rocking makeup, especially shadow that pops, I can’t help but take notice. That’s just what happened when I was trekking through the mall the other day. I was hovering around the Shiseido counter because I’ve been intending to give them a try ever since, Sam Fine recommended that I try one of their eye-liner pencils in beige.
When asked if I needed any help, I was so taken by her eyeshadow that I forgot all about the eye liner. Turns out she’s wearing the three shades from their Fire palette (below). I was impressed by how velvety smooth the shadow was. As she educated me on Shiseido’s history, founder, makeup artistic director, Dick Page, and eye-shadow application, I asked if I could snap her picture. I whipped out my trusty Lumix camera and staged an impromptu photo shoot. The Sartorialist, I am not. But all in all, I think you can see the beauty of it.
