We’ll Put On Some Makeup, Turn Up the Utada Track

Pop superstar Utada will be making an in-store appearance at makeup mecca Sephora in Unholywood tomorrow, which should be quite a wild event!

I’ve been to that Sephora on many occasions. Every single time I shop for eyeshadow, one of the product experts swoops in on me and starts offering lengthy, unsolicited tips on drawing me a “sexy, dramatic, Asian cat eye” or “giving off the illusion of an eyelid.” I always end up walking out with glittery, purple flame-style eyes with dark upside-down smiles holding the top of my eyes hostage, or uh, giving off the illusion of an eyelid.


I like my eyes just fine, thank you very much, with the slanty shape, bags underneath, stick-straight lashes–and apparently, my lack of eyelids (they seem to open and close without lids, I guess). So I’m not planning on going back to Sephora anytime soon. And to Utada, all I can say is: Good luck, and stay away from anyone with a makeup brush and a name tag!

Name: Hikaru Utada (aka Utada, Hikki)

Age: 26

Hails from: NYC

Why She’s a Babe: Because the Japanese-American pop and R&B singer is one of the most successful recording artists of all time in Japan. And as a New Yorker who lives in Tokyo and records in two languages, she’s a citizen of the world. Also, homegirl likes food, and we love a girl who eats. We love her new short crop, too.

Listen to Utada’s latest single, “Come Back to Me,” here, from her English-language album This Is the One, which drops in May.

Thanks, D!
