Shu Uemura Lightbulb Foundation $85
Previously known as Japan Makeup, this unique make-up brand; which is a blend of nature, science and art, Shu Uemura has been slowly creeping through the beauty industries to become one of the best known formulated make-up brands in the world. Founded in 1967, and re-branded in 1983, the beauty line was created and founded by international Japanese make-up artist Shu Uemura. Inspired by a professional spirit of make-up artistry, Shu Uemura was shaped on the holistic philosophy that ‘beautiful make-up starts with beautiful skin.’ The brand uses the most innovative skincare formuals and breakthrough technologies to reveal every woman’s inner beauty.
This foundation Covers flaws and shows off a luminous, even complexion, whilst providing high coverage to cover blemishes, dark spots and any other skin concerns, without causing any irritation to the skin. The foundation is stemmed from Shu’s expertise in Oleo technology, which is a multi-glow oil complex, that’s a buildable oil complex, for a natural glow and coverage to the skin.
Shu Uemura Point Concealer $42
Much like its foundation counter-part; the Lightbulb foundation, this concealer covers blemishes well, hides blackheads, small freckles and dark or red spots on the skin, and even acne without causing any further skin irritation. Helping to flaunt a clear and smooth looking complexion.
