HIGH DEGREE OF COLORS SATURATION

To introduce their latest products, Vivid Shine Eyeshadows and Vivid Shine Lipstick, Estee Lauder Indonesia did a beauty workshop today for their VIP customers.

I was also invited to attend and got a chance to color play with Leo Wong, Estee Lauder Chief Makeup Artist from Hong Kong. Leo did remind me of K-Pop artist, but he actually has been around makeup world for more than 10 years. “I’ve been around a lot, Korea, Japan, France, so every makeup needs are different in each. I can see that Indonesian ladies are more daring to wear bold colors for their eyes, therefore this latest range, Vivid Shine will fill their needs just fine,” said Leo.

In Bimasena lobby lounge, The Dharmawangsa, Jakarta, Estee Lauder Indonesia’s VIP customers were spoilt with choices of signature services (quick cleanse & make over), skin care & makeup consultation with Leo and Estee Lauder Indonesia’s beauty advisors, Facial, Nail Art and all those special offers hard to be missed (like the red Ultimate Color bag seen above, which consists of Rp 6millions items-sold for Rp 1.8millions only).

And lucky me, Estee Lauder Indonesia’s team offered me to be the model for Leo’s make over. But before the make over session, I had a chance to talk to Leo about next year’s trend. He answered, “Aqua colors, soft blue and soft green for eyes. All natural colors, with nude lips and good skin. We at Estee Lauder always believe that good makeup come from great skin, so we have to take care of our skin the correct way, before putting on any makeup." 

As Leo worked his magic on my face, firstly he did half the face, so the audience will get a pretty good idea of the before & after look. I believe this Fall, Estee Lauder and Tom Pecheux wants us to play with bolder colors, like purple and mauve which Leo also used for my makeup. Sparkling, shiny with more intense color, that’s what Vivid Shine New Pure Color is all about.

Leo also shared a lot of tips to the audiences while he was doing my makeup. 

  • Concealer is also good for eyes primer, mix it with your eye cream and pat lightly.
  • Never ever put on so many loose powder on your brush, just roll the brush inside the pot then roll the brush using the side of the brush (not the tip) on your face. With this trick you won’t be splattering loose powder on your clothes.
  • For day look, there’s no need to highlight, as the look might seem to strong. Stick to blush on.
  • Need to contour? Pick one or two levels of foundation darker than your skin tone.

BRING JOY, BLISS & SPARKLE TO THIS YEAR’S CHRISTMAS

What other ways to feel the Christmas spirit then to layer ourself in Christmas scents?

Well, the celebration aura has already kicked off at The Body Shop Indonesia. I was invited to their press event at the atrium of Mall Taman Anggrek, Jakarta, Indonesia this afternoon. In the middle of the mall, they built up sort of mini Christmas ‘market’, such a joyful journey full with gifts ideas, free make over counter and free gift wrapping. The best part of all, they’re on sale. How about that? For sure, I won’t be running out of festive make up ideas and Christmas presents idea this year as they have so many choices, almost for anyone in the family. 

At the press event, Ratu Maulia Ommaya, PR & Social Media Manager The Body Shop Indonesia said, that gift is one of the important part of Christmas celebration, and it won’t be hard to find something right for your loved ones. Especially at the Give Joy event, which will be celebrated at Mal Taman Anggrek, Jakarta, Indonesia until November 25, 2012. This time (until February 2013), The Body Shop Indonesia will donate Rp 5000 for each Mixed Shower Gift Tube, Born Lippy Gift or Body Butter Gift Lollypop sold for children’s health in Papua cooperating with Wahana Visi Indonesia, partner of World Vision in Indonesia.

Being so thoughtful, fellow media friends and bloggers were taught by Nadia Susanti, The Body Shop Indonesia’s make up artist on how to do festive make up. She said that festive means glam and shimmering make up, and The Body Shop named it “Rock Some Sparkle”. Modeled by Alena, Indonesian’s singer, she focused on Alena’s eyes to bring some serious green sparkle to achieve a perfect glow for night look. Alena was happy to see how the color of her eyeshadows turned so intense. She said, “I must have this Baked To Last for my stage performance. I like the boldness of this green color.” And for those who has the time and creativity to spare to wrap gifts, Ineke Turangan, Gift Parcel Expert from Newline was also at the press event to share her knowledge. The Body Shop Indonesia was kindly enough to give extra gift away for press who did the best Christmas wrapping. And of course, as a non DIY person as I’ve ever been, I didn’t win. Haha.

And the highlight of the press event was the launch of The Body Shop Christmas Limited Edition 2012. There are three range for this year’s collection. The ever popular Cranberry Joy range is back, with different packaging adorned with snow flakes and sparkles. Check out the new range Vanilla Bliss and Ginger Sparkle, each with interesting notes. Sold separately and in a super adorable gift box (Ginger Bread Man is so cute, don’t you think?), they come in variants of shower gel, body butter, body polish and lip dome (for Cranberry, they have shimmer lotion, hand cream and heart soap). Better hurry to get and wrap them up as early as possible. I personally dislike queuing up just to wrap Christmas gift. 

A WINNER’S DELIGHT

In the previous post, http://shintarosvita.tumblr.com/post/35827431986/styling-myself-i-can-see-why-kate-moss-was-picked I’ve got 1 million rupiahs to spend for winning Mango Style Up Yourself Contest this year. Here, I share what I picked from the store.

I went to Gandaria City, one of the big mall in South Jakarta, near where I live, to pick up my prize at Mango’s store. Browsed around the internet previously before I came by to the store, I saw most of the new arrival items online are available too. 

And finally I’ve decided to pick up two in trend color for fall 2012, oxblood. As spooky it might sound, oxblood is really dramatic yet sultry in a luxe way. I believe oxblood will effortlessly mix into any wardrobe. Of course, there are a lot of oxblood color in the store, from skinny pants to dresses, but I’ve decided to pick two items with a touch of oxblood. A grey boxy top with touch of oxblood on the sleeves, and a two tone shoulder bag embellished with metallic applications. I’ll share you how I mix match the two items soon. Stay tune.

DIGITAL PRINT SATCHELS

Dig in some digital print on fashion lately? Then one of this satchel bag has to be in your collection.

Basso & Brooke are actually the shortened for Bruno Basso & Christopher Brooke. They are the pioneers of the digital print process in fashion. Michelle Obama wore one of the label’s top in 2009, and it was like a seal of fashion approval for the UK’s brand, making Basso & Brooke one of the very first UK designers to be worn by the First Lady. 

They have collaborated with lots of brands previously (from fashion to beauty), from Swarovski to TIGI. And to close this 2012 with glory, they collaborated with fellow UK’s brand, Cambridge Satchel Company for this cool bag. Printed digitally using original Basso & Brooke print on genuine leather, they are now available for pre-order before Christmas time. Only 100 bags available for each design, this limited edition collection are only sold online. The good news: they provide express worldwide delivery for this collectible satchels. 

INSPECTOR (BEAUTY) GADGETS

Let’s talk about these revolutionary and weird looking beauty devices.

To tell you the truth, I only rely on one beauty gadget, my good old Clarisonic. I started to use them like a year ago, after I read a lot of fantastic reviews about the device that promised to clean our skin 6 times better than using our own hands. Since I rarely do facial, I decided to give it a try. God knows how clean my skin is, but what I experienced from using Clarisonic, all my skin care products seem to absorb better, and yes, it’s clearer.

So, if I have to buy another beauty gadgets, it will be:

1. NuFACE® ‘Trinity – Petal Pink’ Facial Toning Device: Claims to effectively improves skin’s appearance by stimulating our face. This handheld device also promised to increase product penetration by 47%, new cell growth by 500% and collagen+elastin to reduce crow’s feet and dark circles. Yes, it had me at dark circles!

2. Silk’n ‘Flash&Go’ Holiday Hair Removal Kit: Bye-bye unwanted hair. This home-use device use Home Pulsed Light Technology, which designed to provide proven long term hair removal results from the convenience at our own home, safely. They even promised the minimal discomfort after using this product as compared to waxing or professional laser treatment. Great, no more screaming at waxing table.

3. GLO Brilliant™ Personal Teeth Whitening Device: I don’t smoke, but I love tea and an addict for coffee. So, this gadget will surely help to deliver whiter teeth. It claims to give us up to eight shade changes and long lasting results. The first session might be tacky, but the more familiar we are with the gadget, next session will be faster and easier, so they said. Since I hate to go to the dentist to hear all those annoying sound from the drills, this kit is in my list.

*these 3 gadgets are available separately in Sephora and Nordstrom (in store and online)
