EOTD: Jill Stuart Seductive Eyes 06 Romantic Goddess
Synaesthesia asked about Yuskin-A's functions, but I had already thrown away the box which contained all the information in English. So I did a search online and found the Yuskin company website. There's a section on the history of Yuskin creams and another one that describes the different functions of Yuskin-A, including ingredients list. Additionally, I forgot to add in the previous post, Nisshio has the Yuskin S cream too, which is formulated for sensitive skins and contains the added ingredient of Perilla Extract. I think I'll be buying the S version next time. Hope this helps! On hindsight, does it seem scary to put this cream on the eyelash line, especially when it says "medicated" on the label? I don't know why I didn't feel wary and just went ahead to experiment! In fact, I'm not sure how or why something is labelled "medicated" in Japan. I have no idea seriously, I hope someone can help to clarify this matter. I used my Jill Stuart today, unable to contain my eagerness. I love how the colours show up on my skin! It's unlike makeup like Bobbi Brown's, which doesn't show up well on my skin at all, or looks muddy when I apply too much ... To satisfy reader curiosities, I'm posting a photo of ONE SINGLE EYE. I must admit to photo-editing (badly) the scary dry line under my eye. I couldn't let that go out into the world wide web! It seems to be worse when I apply concealor so I have no choice truly and had to edit that. And please forgive the messy brows. I need to go to a eyebrow trimming service soon. I also have bad dark circles, which no amount of concealor/corrector can eradicate. I found it very hard to capture the colours ... it took abit of colour adjustment that I'm still not happy with at all because it still doesn't show the colours properly! Until I learn a better way to capture the colours, this will be the only EOTD that I'm doing! Meanwhile, you'll just have to trust me when I say I'm happy with the colours on an eyeshadow palette. So, this EOTD was done using Jill Stuart Seductive Eyes 06 Romantic Goddess and the Non-no tutorial (Look #1) that Haru of Rouge Deluxe had previously posted. Following the tutorial, I applied some eyeshadow on the bottom lash line too but it's not obvious in the photo here at all. I also used the 08 Romantic Poppy blush but didn't take a photo. I need to get more Jill Stuart! The texture is a bit powdery on the Seductive Eyes palette but I don't mind it at all, since I love how it shows up well on my skin. I also think I get better results using the sponge applicators, so I'm going to give up on brushes for now. While the camera phone doesn't pick up the colours very well and I need some tips on how to take good EOTD photos, the truth is I am always in a big rush in the mornings getting everyone and everything ready and out of the house. Taking a photo is the last thing on my mind right after I'm done getting ready for work. And I don't usually have any interest in putting on makeup at other times to tell the truth. Weekends, I just do the sunblock, powder (maybe some tinted moisturiser) and mascara, because all I'm doing are motherly duties. © Copyright. All rights reserved.
