We watch as the jewelry designer goes (way) out of her beauty comfort zone with Shu Uemura.
Is it bad that we have that 'Brave' song stuck in our heads right about now?
Before you ask if we'd like a side of Pumpkin Spice Latte or a copy of Eat, Pray, Love to go alongside our unofficial entrance into basic-dom, we swear that we can explain.
But it was with Brooke and Shu Uemura's mantra of 'Brave Beauty' in mind that Ginsburg soldiered on—and eventually, in fact, not only came around to her electric green eyeliner, but kind of fell in love with it. But what else would you expect from the beauty brand that's collaborated with everyone from Takashi Murakami to Viktor & Rolf and Karl Lagerfeld? That, and the fact that their false eyelashes alone are not only some of the best in the business, but also range from being made entirely of everything from feathers to tulle and sequins—we were even able to convince Ginsburg to try a pair on herself. How's that for brave?
P.S. Thinking about playing with sequinned false lashes or yellow liquid liner this weekend? Okay, so maybe you don’t have to go that far. Next time you go out of your beauty comfort zone, snap a selfie & share your #BraveBeauty (hashtags = a thing, guys) with @thecoveteur and @shuuemurausa––and yes, we’re expecting you.
The Emerald Green Cat Eye
Start by prepping the skin with shu uemura Stage Performer Instant Glow cream. Concentrate the product on the high points of the face such as the cheek bones and bridge of the nose to reflect light and enhance bone structure.
Prime the eyes with a skin-toned eyeshadow, such as M light beige 813 to neutralize the lids.
To create a cut-crease effect, start by tracing a curved line slightly below the crease of the eye using the Brave Beauty Lasting Gel Pencil in M Green. Then soften the line with dark green eyeshadow from the Brave Beauty Green Palette using the Kolinsky 5R brush and blend slightly upward.
Using the same brush, apply a lighter shade of green eyeshadow onto the inner corner of the eye to create a point of light. Complete the look with Petal Lash mascara and/or a pair of fierce lashes.
To frame the eye, fill in the brows with the Hard Formula brow pencil using short feathery strokes to mimic the appearance of natural hairs.
Balance the bold eye with a classic nude lip. Apply Kolinsky lip brush for extra precision.
