Japonesque - John Lewis Launch and Make-Over.

Hello! I am back from an amazing time in Berlin, I'll do a post on it this week sometime but I actually took more photos on my lomo fisheye camera than my SLR as I love to physically have photos of special times :)

Anyway! A couple weeks ago I was invited to the launch of Japonesque in John Lewis, Cardiff to check out the brands new colour range and have a little make-over fun.

I was greeted with macaroons and Elderflower squash by the lovely Amy, Rana and the MUA Paul where I got to learn alot more about the brand and start my make-over. The brand was started in America however is all inspired by Japanese Kabuki Theatre make-up and it's application.

The finished look (pout included).
Loved the subtle eye flick done with pencil!

The packaging is one-of-a-kind in the sense that 3 colours are blobbed onto the packaging during the conveyor belt process and then individual artists mix the colours before sealing so each package is unique - mental!

Lucky little me got to take home a 150degree Eye Shadow brush and Finishing Powder. 

I also found my PERFECT foundation. The colour match was incredible I never find anything for my pale ol' skin but the Luminous Foundation in shade 02 was amazing!

Have you heard of Japonesque before?
