Spring and beauty with Shiseido’s artistic director

Friday, 23 August 2013

We asked artistic director for Shiseido, Dick Page, for some make-up advice and what his top spring looks are.

Q. What is the one make-up product every woman should have?
A. ‘A good red lipstick!’

Q. Do you have an easy trick for applying eyeliner?
A: ‘I like to apply heavily and then swipe clean for a sharp line with a cotton swab and eye make-up remover.’

Q. How do I find my perfect foundation shade?
A. ‘Dot the forehead, cheek and chin, blend lightly. And where it disappears, that the best match!’

Q. Eye shadow recommendations for ageing eyes?
A. ‘Work mostly with mattes and add shine along the lash line with a cream shadow or a trace of pearl on the brow bone to keep everything bright and fresh looking.’

Here are some of Dick Page’s Spring 2013 looks using Shiseido make-up:

Dick Page 1
Look 1: Sublime
Confident, romantic lips are the perfect complement to neutral, glowing eyes and pale pink cheeks.

Look 2: Pretty
Simple and soft nude lips with natural, fresh eyes and gold dusted cheeks create a luminous and delicate look.

Look 3: Fuchsia
Classic fuchsia lips expressing clean elegance, paired beautifully with pink silver detail around the eyes and subtle black eyeliner.

Look 4: Secret
Dramatic olive-toned eyes are balanced with a bronzed hue on the cheeks and very natural lips.

    Look 2 looks great but I like the red lips also. I’ve never been brave enough to try red though.

    I love all those looks but would probably mostly do pretty for daytime wear and Secret for night time and for a fun experiment the Fuchsia

    I love the look with the pink lips. The advice for choosing foundation is spot on, that is so much easier to do than just matching your jawline – especially since your face is not one colour all around.
