Technically these FOTDs feature all the SUQQU aw17 products I reviewed here, but for me the eyeshadow (Designing Colour Eyes in #107 Horeaka) tends to be what sets the tone of a look so that’s what I chose to focus on here.
Now that I’ve played with this quad a little bit more, I can safely say that it surpassed my expectations. SUQQU products have always been top notch in the quality department, but the color combination of this quad in particular is what sets this quad apart: it is harmonious without being boring and current without being intimidating. I personally love warm eyeshadow and reds in particular, but I imagine that in any other iteration or combination, this quad would have been a pretty hard sell for SUQQU’s luxury-loving-but-slightly-more-conservative demographic.
This first look is a lot softer overall; the eyeshadow placement is more Asian-inspired, with light washes of the colours all over and a darkened lashline.
This placement would definitely look more beautiful on monolid eyes, which are so well enhanced by liner and have the smoothness of lid to best show off watercolour-like shading. Looking at this critically, I feel like the nuances of the different shadows are a bit lost in the contours of my eye, but I hope you get the idea. I paired this look with Moisture Rich Lipstick in #06 Senkenka, which I think created the perfect balance for the eye look.
The second look I created with Horeaka was a touch darker, thanks to using more of the plum-brown shade all over my lid and in my outer V and finishing the look off with darker lips courtesy of Chanel’s Jumbo Lip Crayon in 08 Cassis, patted on and smudged with a finger.
You can see the eyeshadow placement a little more clearly in this last photo – I’ve brought the darkest shade of the quad pretty much all the way up to my crease, which I blended out with the red shade. To be honest, I’m still playing around with Horeaka and trying to figure out the most ideal placement for it but I’m very happy with the way this look turned out, and how easy it was to create. Bold eyeshadows that don’t take a lot of work to use/pull off are always welcome in my collection!
