shu’s play date collection

Japanese artistry brand shu uemura is in a playful mood for spring. That is clearly evident at first glance at its limited edition makeup collection packed with joyful pinks, turquoise and mango orange. It’s meant to encourage beauty enthusiasts to have fun and experiment with colour and texture.

“At shu uemura, the seasonal collections usually focus on a particular design or technique, but for this spring 2017 spring/summer collection, I decided to focus on the pleasure and happiness that people can derive from makeup and fashion,” explains Uchiide, the brand’s international makeup director. I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing him before and I have never seen a makeup artist who is more precise with his application. It is like watching a master painter at work. His placement of colour is exact and his technique perfect.

“Using makeup is about expressing yourself, although the feeling of the collection and pretty overall, you can adapt these products to suit your own mood and create any look you want – something a bit more grown up, or fanciful and fresh, or both at once, depending on how you feel with the real emphasis on the eyes.” He says ‘joy’ is the main theme of the collection and the concept of the makeup is focusing on colour rather than technique, and using the products in a light and simple way. “The colour palette of the entire collection relies on retro-inspired and spring-like bright coordination, and the whole 2017 spring/summer collection has harmony with 70s and 80s fashion, which will continue to be a major trend, and will only increase people’s enthusiasm.” Here’s a look at the collection:

“Each palette has a main focus of colour such as orange, pink or blue, which will define the feeling of the overall look. Use the darkest colour first to define and frame along the lash line. Next, use the main colour washed over the middle of the eyelids. Finally, blend everything seamlessly using the highlight colour.” – Uchiide

    On February 27th, I’ll be 27+ again and all I want for my 27th Birthday is as much SHU as I can fit in my closet, about 27 dozen cases of beautiful vibrant, colorful shu products, 1 of every product every color, every foundation, every blush, every lip gloss, every lipstick, every mascara, all the different skincare collections,, all the face skin oils, To make it plain & simple, 1 of ALL their beauty products. Well, maybe we should make that 2 of everything just in case, G-D forbid, I run out of any of the products from the first set.

    Oh and did I mention all the wonderful Haircare products as well? They are absolutely FABULOUS. EVERY woman NEEDS to own a SHU Haircare Oil called Shu Uemura Insole Essence Carmellia Oil, spelled very, very wrong. That product is the Fountain of Youth for Hair and in my case, transformed long dry locks into long, hydrated, “I wanna run my fingers through your soft, flowing voluminous sexy strands forever.

    These are such gorgeous products they’re screaming to be put into a new contest. Can you hear it? Or maybe that’s just me screaming with glee at the thought of such a wonderful and exciting contest!

    I love the playfulness of this collection. The pastels all look very wearable. Even though each palette has its own “theme” I feel the shades can easily be mixed and matched between palettes to create countless Spring looks.
