Creating that cute innocent sweet look, pink eye shadows were used and brighten the eyes on the lower lash line with Kira Kira. Everything got to be pink including the blusher and lips, brows are are softer with lighter color using brow mascara.

This is more of a neutral look where colors of the eyeshadows used are champagne, white, gold and brown. The blusher and lip colors are more orange tones. Not to be missed to bring Kira Kira on the lower lashes line. In between of the make-up demonstration, there are a few make-ups circulating around for us to try.

Canmake Spring 2013 Trend @ International Beauty Expo - Smooth Skin Primer

Canmake Smooth Skin Primer

This is an upcoming product, a primer to be applied before your makeup.  It helps to reduce the appearance of pores with matte finish. The texture is light and thick cream, once blended, it finishes off smooth and velvety. This is very interesting and I’m very into matte finishing product especially when I have combination skin.

Canmake Smooth Liquid Foundation

When Ms Itabashi used this foundation during the make-up demo, the foundation looked pretty sheer until I swatch it myself. It comes in a pump bottle, the texture is light but the coverage is medium to full. I’m not sure if this will be suitable for combination to oily skin. This foundation is also an upcoming product for Canmake in Malaysia.
