I’m glad to say I’m officially a SHU-girl! It’s been a yearÂ being in Malaysia and just shy of a year actually working in Malaysia. I’ve landed a beauty deal withÂ the makeup brand Shu Uemura, who’sÂ tagline reads: BeautifulÂ Make-Up starts with Beautiful Skin. I couldn’t agree more!
I had aÂ casual lunchÂ meeting with Shu Uemura’s Brand Manager last week and it was definitely one of the more productive meetings I’ve had cuz we marked down a date for my Shu Uemura shoot! I can’t show too much for obvious reasons, but I got some pretty awesome “Behind the Scenes” pictures.
I’m really excited to be working closely with Shu Uemura and building a long-term relationship! I was introduced to their products from my Godsister Justina who is always my go-to girl for beauty trends and fashion! She was giving me strict directions with their cleansing oils and a year after, I’ve been using them religiously with my daily routine.
I feel like my skin has aged a million years – especially having to put on heavy makeup that can withstand hours of filming/shoots and being over-blotted everytime the camera sees shine. I know I’ve had my hay day of bad skin (circa 2002/03) but needing to go for monthly facials to rid of the congestion can get quite expensive. Shirley started me out with this White Recovery Line…. and honestly, its so far so good!
For those that see me without makeup know that all the prodding and pinching from my extractions has left unruly marks on my skin, and I can see improvement every day (in addition to eating well and drinking loads of water). I’m usually quite skeptical of using new products but I’m glad I’ve got a great Shu Uemura skin regime now!
I can’t wait to see how the pictures turn out! Everyone I worked with was amazing, even the photographer who shares the same last name as I do! 🙂
