I can’t believe I haven’t written about Majolica Majorca since April – one our first posts here! Ah, how we’ve grown since then…

Wallowing in memories aside, we’re well overdue a catchup with my favourite make-up brand!

I love how Majolica Majorca completely redesign their website for every new collection; their current theme is ‘Queen of Decoration’, and if you’d like to recreate this eye make-up then click through…

One: Use the palest shadow to highlight your browline & inner corner of your eye

Two: Fan the medium shade over the eyelid & blend into the socket

Three: Use the brightest colour on the outer corner of your eye and blend towards the middle

Four: Finally, line the top eyelid completely & one-third/half of the bottom of the eye with the darkest shadow

Five: Finish off with mascara and/or false eyelashes. Goregous!

I’ve chosen to show off this make-up tutorial from Majolica Majorca as not only does it show how best to use the products, but I think it also works well with Western as well as Asian eyes and can be adapted to suit a variety of styles, from subtle lolita to bold rock-gyaru.

Being a huge fan of Majolica Majorca, I can’t wait to try their new colours! I really love this season’s theme, and the artwork that compliments it – rooms filled with antique birdcages, silver spoons and dried flowers appeal aesthetically to classic lolitas, mori girls & vintage lovers alike – I can’t help thinking they’ve taken a peek at the interior of Grimoire’s fantastic shop in Shibuya!

    What’s the appeal of these versus non-Japanese brands? I see loads of girls importing Japanese make-up and in the end it costs them more than MAC, Make-Up Forever, NARS, and other higher-end brands. I don’t understand it.

    I don’t think I’d go so far as to import it myself, but I will make a point of picking up MM items when in Japan. Don’t think I could get away with foundation though, that’s tricky even in the UK!

    I think MM is a great example of of Japanese style – everything, down to the packaging has been beautifully designed. I’ve found their products to be comparable to the make-up brands you’ve mentioned above, and hey; I like my make-up to look good in my make-up bag as well as on my face!

    Then buy Anna Sui. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Just checked out their website; no wonder they’re good quality as they’re owned by Shiseido.

    I still find Anna Sui’s packaging much more beautiful, though ๐Ÿ˜‰
