This month makeup tips and tricks from Shiseido refers to the colour association. Not everyone knows how to combine colors, how to pair them to achieve the perfect makeup look and I admit I was a beginner myself a few years ago so Shiseido gives us a few simple rules to follow that will work for everyone.
