Shiseido AW2015 Makeup: Warm Sultry Hues

September 2, 2015

Happy mid-week!  How is the week turning out for you?  I am in the midst of planning a 2-week trip to Italy next month, and my thoughts are all on lush fall foliage and the Tuscan countryside.  But let me pause my meandering thoughts for a moment and continue in my coverage of Shiseido’s Autumn/Winter 2015 Makeup Collection.  Today I would like to show you a selection of eyes and lip products to create a warm, sultry autumnal look!

If you have seen part 1 of this post last week, you are already familiar with the product categories and formulas that I’ll be showing you today.  So let me jump straight into the items and their colors.

Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Color BR329 Ochre

Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Color BR329 Ochre is a color and name that I often associate with Shiseido makeup as I spent the early years of my life using Shiseido foundation and powder, and I was always matched to the shade Ochre.  This particular shade of Shimmering Cream Eye Color is equal parts yellow and brown, and thankfully avoids turning orange completely.

It seems an unlikely choice for an eye color, but interestingly, it pulls cool-toned and almost coral when blended out.  The presence of golden micro-shimmers add complexity and depth to the eye, so much so I don’t feel the need to deepen with a matte brown crease shade.  Instead, I wore it very “cleanly” the way the Korean trends dictate at the moment, with just a simply black liner.  Also, I lined my lower lash line with Ochre to give a bit of that aegyo sal effect.

Shiseido Perfect Rouge RD555 Spellbound

Shiseido Perfect Rouge RD555 Spellbound is a deep red with some micro-shimmers hidden inside, giving off a lustrous shine when applied.  I found Spellbound to be less warm on my lips than it swatches on my arm and looks in the tube, but it could vary depending on your actual lip color.

I am very fond of Spellbound, the formula and intensity of color strikes the perfect balance to make this an everyday wearable red!

Shiseido Veiled Rouge OR313

Shiseido Veiled Rouge OR313 Honeydew is a light orange-beige with a rather sheer finish.  This is not typically a shade I would reach for as it makes me look rather washed out, and as my natural lips are quite pigmented, the translucency makes it hard to attain full opacity.

As you can see, the effect of Honeydew on my lips is not very flattering.  Of course, if you are fairer, and your lips not as pigmented as mine, I imagine Honeydew can be quite pretty and a good alternative to the usual nude lips.  For myself, I found other interesting alternative uses of Honeydew, one which I really favoured was as a cheek tint!

To use a lip color on the cheeks, I simply dabbed the lipstick on the back on my hand, and then applied it to my cheeks with my fingers before blending out with a brush or beauty blender.  It lends a very soft, natural flush with a hint of shine.  To seal in the color and keep it in place, I lightly dusted some loose translucent powder over it.

And here is the final look!

Hope you have enjoyed the 2 very different, yet simple makeup looks that I’ve put together with Shiseido’s A/W 2015 Makeup Collection!  Which one do you prefer, and tell me, would you ever use a lipstick as a cheek color?

And anybody has any travel tips and must see/do/eat places in Italy to recommend?!

    Seems like rusty orange-y eyeshadows are big this season! Would be an interesting look to try. Love that red lipstick on you! It’s wearable with impact!

      Yes I’m hoping so! I just can’t seem to wrap my head around the travel arrangements though!

      Yes, orange and reds seem to be having a moment… and not colors I would usually gravitate towards, but I’ve been very pleasantly surprised so far! Spellbound is an awesome lip color, i love it!
