Forever young


According to my makeup artist friends, colorful makeup makes you look younger.
In other words, ka-age.
But before you start hoarding the colors of the rainbow at your favorite makeup counter, keep in mind that "colorful" doesn't mean shocking.
In other words, matrona.

Peg: Think of a teenager's face (with good skin) — flawless skin, rosy cheeks, slightly thick eyebrows, and the look of just-been-bitten lips.

Flawless skin = Concealer + Foundation
Rosy cheeks = Pinkish or peach-colored blush
Slightly thick eyebrows = Well-groomed brows using brow pencil/powder
Just-been-bitten lips = Pinkish red lipstick (Pink on the outer part of the lips and redish hue on center, blended)

Aya Takano x Shu Uemura 
Abracadabra Fantasy Collection

Aya Takano is a Japanese pop artist associated with the Superflat movement. Influenced by both manga and American Science Fiction, her art typically depicts large-eyed female heroines, often partially or completely nude.

Teenagers also love to experiment on colors. Keep your makeup fun by using colorful eyeshadows on the lids like greens, pinks, yellows, and corals. If you choose neutral tones as eyeshadows, wear bright-colored lipsticks like fuchsia and blood-orange to accentuate your look.

Remember that moderation is key to achieve the ka-age look.

If you're confused on what colors exactly, Aya Takano x Shu Uemura Collection will enlighten you.
It's a complete makeup palette of wearable colors in a cute and young-looking packaging — very ka-age.

 *Shu Uemura is located at Powerplant Mall, Rockwell, Rustan's, Makati and Shangri-la
