Last month, BDJ Box announced in their Facebook page that Shu Uemura will be having a Drawing Pencil Workshop in which they will be featuring different eye makeup styles using the Shu Uemura Drawing Pencils.

I was able to attend the schedule that was held at the Shu Uemura counter in Rustan’s Makati. Ms. Cats Del Rosario was the Junior Make-Up Associate who did the makeup demo that afternoon.
Ms. Cats did the whole skincare routine first before applying makeup for the model. Then, she taught us how to do a perfect face makeup using different Shu Uemura products. This is actually the first time that I heard from a makeup artist that you can use two shades of foundation. The first one (the shade that is suited for the skin tone) is used for covering up the skin imperfections. The second one (a darker shade compared to the first one) is used to contour the face instead of using a powder.
After the face makeup, Ms. Cats did the eye makeup. She introduced to us the Shu Uemura Drawing Pencils. Shu Uemura aims to include fun in putting on your eye makeup so they came up with various colorful shades for you to choose from. Some of the pencils have shimmers and some have a matte finish. But all of them can effortlessly glide on your eyes so you can put on your desired look easily. Also, they are waterproof and smudge-proof. You can be sure that throughout the day, your eye makeup will stay put.
Here are some of the shades available for the Shu Uemura Drawing Pencils. 😀
