Beauty Corner: Sayuki Custom Cosmetics

During a recent trip to my cosmetics mecca, Barneys NY, I was introduced to the lovely Tracy Wells who recently started a company called Sayuki Custom Cosmetics. After hearing about her amazing new products I knew I was going to need to test them out so I made an appointment to meet with her and walk through the process.


First they take a bare-faced, close-up photograph of your face, then the computer program analyzes your skin tone and provides the machine with a breakdown of the percentage of yellow, white, red, and black in your complexion.


The process of inputting millilitres of each distinct pigment into the final products is such a delicate procedure that the machine uses both diabetic needles and heart pumps to get the job done.


In 2 minutes and 30 seconds you can have yourself a custom-made concealer, foundation, or tinted moisturizer in heavy, medium, or sheer, that provides all-day coverage & you can even a hearty dose of SPF with the oil-free sunscreen they offer.


Some of the ingredients they use are Hyalouanic Acid {anti-aging}, Squalene {promotes clear skin}, Sea Kelp {moisture}, 1/2 carat Diamon Powder {luminosity}, and Matrixly {collagen building}. On top of that – Their products are dye-free, fragrance-free, paba-free, and oil-free.

Where you do usually buy your cosmetics? Would you try a custom-made foundation, tinted moisturizer, or concealer?

What I’m loving right now…

I definitely go through phases when it comes to the inanimate objects in my daily life – Everything from the beauty products I use to the accessories I wear to the reading materials stacked on my nightstand. Whether you call it a rut or finely tuning your routine, I’m sure you know precisely what I mean.

So here are some of my current (new and past) loves…

{The love of my life, my new Givenchy bag – See Skulls & Givenchy for photos from the first MCLV Style post featuring this bag!}

{My newest mascara acquisition – I’ve mentioned my love of Benefit’s BADGal and Chanel’s Inimitable mascara in the past, but I also like to rotate in a drugstore brand now and again, and I’ve been thrilled with the results of Maybelline’s One by One Volume Express}

{As far as I’m concerned you can’t have enough fun, statement jewelry: Spiked Bracelet – & Purple Beaded Necklace – Zara}

{In my opinion the only positive thing about the end of Summer are September issues!}

{SWOON! I’ve been a fan of Moroccan Argan Oil for a while so when I saw this L’Oreal Precious Oil Treatment I jumped at the chance to try it – Not only does it smell like a dream, it’s visibly nourishing}

{It’s official – I’m in love! Skull adorned Steve Madden smoking slippers}
