Japanese artistry makeup brand shu uemura is one of my favourite beauty brands. Not only does it offer excellent quality, but it excels with its creative collaborations and shade choices. This brand thinks outside the box with each new launch which is why I feature it so often on Cityline. If you’ve ever had the opportunity to watch a shu makeup artist from Japan apply makeup you’ll know how precise the placement of colour is. These artists approach makeup like a fine artist does working on a portrait or oil painting. It is remarkable to watch.

One of my favourite shu collaborations was with Japanese athletic brand Onitsuka Tiger, known for its volleyball footwear. It was bold, energetic and youthful.

“When this collaboration was started, what came up in my mind is the healthy and active women wearing bright colour makeup back in the 1980s, reflecting the time of the fitness boom,” explains Uchiide, Shu Uemura International Artistic Director. “It was the proposal of the founder Mr. shu uemura’s beauty look. I feel that beyond the limit looks similar in its expression, and its spirit is to challenge the limits and elevate its height, and to cheer the ones who challenge to elevate their beauty. Bold-coloured makeup inspired by Onitsuka Tiger’s spirits and stripes will certainly bring your beauty to new heights.”

This special shu uemura eye palette featured eight carefully curated shades to help you create daring and fashionable summer looks that go beyond your imagination.

It comes in a sleek zip compact decorated with the Tiger racing stripes.

    I would say 8 out of 10 as I prefer more brown shades, but that’s just my personal preference!

    9/10. Looks fabulous. I have been experimenting with colour and the blue would look amazing with matching earrings – with glitter.. perfect. I love that there is a a selection of pearl and matte and glitter. Thank you for the chance to experiment with shades.

    Definitely a 10! Such a nice and simple design 🥰 I would use all colors but the blue one, but at least I will try it once.
    Maybe I will need loving it and start to change my makeup style 😍

    This is such a cute palette! I love the zipper packaging as well. And that pop of blue! I would rate this palette as an 8 out of 10 just because it’s on the neutral side, and I’m drawn to really bright colors. Definitely cute and perfect for everyday wear. My Twitter handle is @Kimicookson1016

    I would give it a 8/10. I really love the colours, they look soooo nice but I’m not sure I could pull all of them off but I think they’ve been really nicely thought through, I would definitely consider purchasing.

    Love the packaging design but find the colours in the palette a bit of a odd combination I would probably wear 4 of the colours.
