Guerlain Holiday Collection 2012 Workshop

Few weeks ago, I attended Guerlain Holiday Collection 2012 workshop held at Takashimaya.
At the event, they featured the Liu Makeup Collection.

There's a makeup demostration using the Écrin 4 Couleurs eyeshadow (500 Les Ombres Turandot).

The trick in doing up a smoky eye look is to apply the darkest shade first along the lashline, then the medium shades above it, lastly the lightest shade at brow bone area. Remember to always blend the eyeshadows on the eyes so they look smooth without showing off any harsh lines.

The finished makeup look. You can also add in 1 or 2 dots as moles at the end of the eyes. Just like the look on Natalia Vodianova.

LIU, Eye And Lip Calligraphy Palette
This collectors palette was inspired by the art of calligraphy and Asian beauty rituals. It includes two shades for the lips – carmine and blue-toned red, three eye shadows with an iridescent powder texture – bronze, copper and white, and a matte black powder liner that can be used wet or dry. The extra-flat black Chinese lacquer style case features a large panoramic mirror and two brushes that deliver high-precision application just like calligraphy instruments. The first has a double foam tip for the eyes, one rounded for eyeshadow and the other pointed for liner. The second is a lip brush with silky bristles.

LIU, Perfumed Shimmer Powder Face, Body and Hair
The star of this collection reveals a light-as-air loose powder that enhances the face, body and hair with an iridescent golden veil. A mere press of the bulb releases the powder, leaving Liu’s mesmerizing aromas in its wake: a composition of aldehydes, sensual roses, vanilla, iris and woody notes.

Météorites Perles du Dragon
Météorites Perles du Dragon is named for this Year of the Dragon, and pays tribute to this mythical animal, a symbol of the emperor of China, whose primary source of power lay in a pearl, synonymous with happiness, wisdom and abundance. The harmony of six shades of pearls in an intense, iridescent monochrome palette is perfectly tailored to the holiday season. Like nighttime jewels, it cloaks the face in incredible radiance: Pale pink and beige to even out the complexion, white and gold to illuminate, plum and rosewood to brighten areas of shadow and erase fatigue.

[Sorry, no swatches of it ^_^"]

Météorites Wulong
The name of this travel pressed powder means “Black Dragon” and it combines six shades to ensure a pure, flawless and luminous complexion regardless of skin tone. Matte shades – three light, medium and golden beiges to even out the complexion, and a pink to refresh and revive – are paired with two white and gold illuminating shades that enter the scene to add subtle radiance.
