This honestly made me tear up. Imagining how great he must have felt that his planned worked and choosing that risk paid off.
I also feel like him and the model have such good chemistry, they’re always so kind and loving to one another.
Holy shit what did he do?? That’s rad as hell!
Since the runway was going to have simulated rain, he wanted to make the outfit become colorful because of it rather than deflect it. He sewed dye into the seams and once the rain hit it the dye ran! Very simple but super effective. He was one of the two winners of that challenge.
Absolutely brilliant. Holy shit.
Favorite Orange/Tangerine Lipcolors!
Here’s a quick list of 10 orange lippies that I posted about on Dayre yesterday.
I think there’s a lot of confusion about color groupings because tons of magazines and makeup artists call everything “coral” these days. Not everything is coral. If you need some help differentiating here we go:
Above are 10 shades in varying shades of orange-tones, and if you need more detailed info on each color, visit the dayre post here!
Shu Uemura “the lightbulb” oleo-pact review (plus a preview of a couple of Fall 2014 “Brave Beauty” products)!
Here’s a quick peek at 2 products from the upcoming Brave Beauty collection, which features intensely strong colors and beautiful printed packaging. But this post is really about the lightbulb oleo-pact!
I’ve spoken about Shu Uemura’s the lightbulb foundation and powder foundation before, but I’m not joking when I say the new oleo-pact launching in Sep 2014 is my favorite of the bestselling series so far.
The original Lightbulb foundation is better for dry skins and dry weather; I loved it when I was traveling in Japan. In warmer weather or on oily skins, it can feel slightly heavy cos of the different oils in the formula, doesn’t really set and has a tendency to shift or smear off after a few hours.
The Lightbulb powder foundation I’m afraid I never quite liked as much because I personally don’t like matte full-coverage powder foundations, and I could never get this powder “glow” with the buffer sponge.
The oleo-pact combines the best of both worlds. It isn’t as dewy as the liquid foundation, isn’t as matte as the powder, and comes in a convenient portable compact for touch-ups on the go.
Satin finish (natural-looking glow)
Lightweight feel; not as heavy as the liquid, but not as weightless as the powder of course
This has less coverage than the original liquid foundation, but it’s still buildable to a respectable medium coverage.
I tried this on normal/dry skin in humid weather without any powder and it stayed quite fresh for the whole day (about 10 hours) without oxidizing; no oil-control but it didn’t get dry or cakey on my skin either.
- Sustained natural glow and good skin-evening coverage without being heavy or unnatural
- Reasonable lasting power for normal-to-dry or combi/dry skins
- Lightweight and non-greasy feel
- Stays fresh-feeling even after experiencing some humidity and sebum over the day; didn’t bleed, streak, or cake up after sweating even without setting powder
- Good for normal to slightly-dry or even slightly-combi/oily skins
- Contains oils so it won’t last extremely well on oily skins, although it would do ok on combi skins if set with some powder
- Won’t be hydrating enough if you are extremely dry
- The dense slightly-domed bouncy sponge is a PAIN to clean, just like the other lightbulb sponges.
- Not enough coverage to cover more prominent blemishes; a separate concealer would be needed
- Not refillable; I’d like to purchase a refill for a reduced price instead of throwing out the compact and paying full price each time
The Lightbulb Oleo-pact will launch in Singapore on 1 Sep for $75.
