Shu Uemura Beauty Bloggers Gathering

Shu Uemura invited beauty bloggers to introduce their new product that finally had come to this country, Indonesia. I was really lucky to get the invitation and meet fellow beauty bloggers. The gathering was held at Seribu Rasa restaurant, at Lotte Shopping Avenue. That was my second time being there. I rarely go to mall, especially the ones at Kuningan.

Back to the event. So what is the new product of Shu Uemura?

It's The Lightbulb Liquid Foundation. It is said to be able to glow under any light. Women, nowadays, love natural glowing skin. But sometimes, when we goes to the area that is too dark or too bright, it makes our skin looks dull even though we already applied foundation. So, Shu Uemura tried to solve this problem by creating the foundation that makes the skin can glow under any light.

The Lightbulb Foundation also comes with the Lightbulb Sponge, the white one in the pic above. Pat the foundation on our face by using the larger side of the sponge, and for below eyes area and around nose area, use the pointed side instead. The sponge is easy to hold because of the shrunk shape at the center.

In Indonesia, the Lightbulb Liquid Foundation comes in different eight shades. Here are the 'Eight Shades of Foundation'.

There was the demo product, showing us how we're supposed to do makeup; from the basic skincare until a complete look with natural makeup.

For the glowing effect, Shu Uemura already has these steps to achieve that.

First, by using Tsuya Skin Youthful Radiance Generator. We never want wrinkles and dry skin. This Tsuya skin helps us to re-activate our skin's youth power, make it flawlessly even, and smooth, soft as petal, plumped, toned, and has translucent glowing. (excerpted from:

Second step, use Tsuya Skin UV Under Base Youthful Radiant Mousse. The UV Under Base from Shu Uemura has been the No.1 makeup base in Asia. This Tsuya Skin UV Under Base makes our skin looks dewy and youthful, ready for the makeup.

The third step is finally the foundation. Apply this with sponge for the best result and don't forget to pick the shade that matches the skin tone. Mine is 754 Medium Beige.

The last step is to set it with the powder. Loose powder will make the makeup last longer, especially in humid weather.

After skin had been ready, we went to primp another part of face; eyes, cheeks, lips, of course by using Shu Uemura products. This is my work bench, by the way. Hahahahaha.

I used Shu Uemura drawing pencil for eye liner. I just learned to make no gap between eyes and eye line, we need to draw our inner part of the eye using pencil eye liner. It will create natural deep-looking eyes without that ugly clear gap between our lashes and eyeball. LOL!

And apply eyeshadow, blush on, and lipstick in soft colors.

All colors I chose must have orange tone. Hahahaha. I love orange, it looks fresh on me.

Pose with the new Lightbulb Foundation

After we all were done with our makeup, it was time to have lunch. Seribu Rasa serves traditional food, and they all taste so yummy. My favorite is the black pepper prawn. :9

Then, we visited the counter. I love the design, so colorful.

Bloggers love to take pictures. This is the prove. Once we got to the counter, all were ready to get the best picture of everything we saw. Hahahaha

This one grabbed most of our attention. Shu Lash!

The lashes were displayed on cute teddies. Not only the teddies who made me squealing in excitement, all the lashes themselves were already cute and unique.

Thanks to Shu Uemura Indonesia for such a great event. I really learned a lot. And super thanks for the Lightbulb foundation. Will definitely recommend this foundation. This is a genius invention, in my opinion, and I really love the sponge so much because it will give the very good result in applying foundation. Oh, this Lightbulb foundation comes with its sponge, it means when we purchase this foundation, we also get the sponge. Worth it.
