What kinds of makeup style can we learn today? Let's get started!

Kanebo Makeup Institute

Today, I had this special opportunity to visit the Kanebo Makeup Institute again which is operated by the Kanebo headquarter.

Ms. Osakabe is our makeup artist for today and she is the beauty and hair consultant of the Kanebo Makeup Institute. Ms. Osakabe is a professional makeup artist and her job is not only inside the institute, she also works for other projects like advertising, posters, magazines shooting, television, theater, and fashion shows etc.

Eye Makeup - Eye Shadow

Step 1: A - Wet Shadow Base

Use your finger and take a small portion of Wet Shadow Base and apply it all over your eyelids. It looks just natural and moisturizing right? The best thing about the Wet Shadow Base is that it can create a natural glossy look easily.
Step 2: B - Enhance the glossy look

Then use the small brush to apply B part to your eyelids just like the way shown in the picture.
Step 3: C - Apply layers of light coffee colors

After applying the B part to your eyelids, you can apply C part to the bottom part of your eyelids.
Then you can see the layer effect as shown.
Step 4: D - Use dark coffee color to create a profound look

The final step is to apply the darkest color in D part to the lowest part of your eyelid. Just as easy as that, you are done!!
