Having worked for YSL for over 3 years I felt when I left I had to explore other brands and Shu Uemura was top of my list.

The stunning new counter in Brown Thomas Dublin opened last year and has grown to become hugely popular in Ireland. Named after a Japanese makeup artist and beauty pioneer, Shu Uemura breaks all boundaries when it comes to beauty.

For Shu Uemura, having top quality skincare is essential in ensuring beautiful makeup. I done a bit of research and felt I had to try this out for myself. I took a trip into Brown Thomas to get a skincare guide on what products I should use for my skin.

So for the past 3 weeks I have been trialing the products given to me in my skincare guide. These products were:

This has a smooth gel cream feel to it and felt really hydrating on the skin when I took my makeup off. It is for the 1st signs of ageing but never too soon as they say.
This is €80 for a 50ml jar.
This was voted as BEST BEAUTY BUY in Instyle Magazine (Oscars of the beauty world) It is actually one of the best products I have used for taking off my makeup. It removes makeup but balances moisture & sebum levels in the skin. Leaves your skin feeling SO soft.
Price wise this is €34 = 150ml or €68 = 450ml.
This is an intensive treatment for the face but really tightened my skin. It looked a lot firmer afterwards also.
This is €73 for a pack of 6 masks.

Now for my ULTIMATE favourite product which I shall never be without. I am absolutely obsessed with it now and just cannot get enough of it. It is a UV Underbase Primer in a mousse formula but with a slight tint. It also has SPF 30 which is amazing too.

This product has been on Xpose, in Tatler Magazine and Winner in Harpers Bazaar Beauty Hot 100. I am in love with it.

All 4 products were really good to my skin and it looked in very good condition after. My two favourites are definitely the mask and the underbase. They worked so good and I really feel a difference afterwards. I am excited to try out more new products from the Shu Uemura range. The girls were so helpful and really understood what I wanted when I went into visit them. Explain to them exactly what you want and your quaranteed to come out with amazing products.

Why not book a consultation with the girls, by calling the Shu Uemura counter in Brown Thomas Dublin today on 01-6056666.

You won’t be dissappointed I promise you..
