Women have a complicated relationship with makeup. We wear makeup for various reasons: to boost self confidence, to blend into a certain culture and practice, to impress others, to look younger, to show respect and gain respect… the list goes on…
But recently I have come to a point where I asked myself:
WHY DO YOU PUT ON MAKEUP EVERYDAY?
I find my answer is:
To get in touch with myself…
To me, everyday is a brand new day to rise and shine. Before I get dressed and walk out the door, I will spend a good amount of time in my dressing room, putting on makeup while listening to gospel songs. It is like a ritual to me, to makeup and get in touch with my inner self before the day started. As I gently apply cosmetic products one after another, I think of my vision and refine my look while imagine becoming a sophisticated, beautiful woman.
And the transformation, is magical.
Today, I would like to share about LUNASOL, a Japanese brand that offers a refined and high quality selection of makeup based on “Purifying Makeup” approach!
During the makeup session, I have the opportunity to try out their Lunasol Sand Spring 2014 Collection. The words “sand” and “natural” indicates that this collection is all about embracing nature and look fresh. Lunasol Sand Spring 2014 Collection offers nude, gold and natural shades for the eye makeup while the lips will be painted in rosy and brown shades.
Lunasol beauty consultant chose #01 Neutral Sand for my eyes. A four-colour eye shadow set that consists of beautiful monotone colours, as if cut from the scenery of sand. All colours blend well with skin and by overlaying exquisitely accentuates the natural contours of the eyelids.
My beauty consultant of the day, Lorraine applied the makeup on my face in careful steps. She shared with me about the secret of a delicate makeup is the “base”. She applies makeup base and eye lid base before the foundation and eye shadows to remove dullness and enhance durability, she said. And after each steps, she used a superb powder brush to gently apply the loose powder (their loose powder is super fine and comfortable on face!!).
It literally feels like a fairy sprinkling magic dust on my face…
Isn’t it wonderful?
Later I learned that LUNASOL products promise to purify not only the outside, but also the spirit within.
