This year, Shu Uemura is celebrating the 24th anniversary of his first boutique! After reading a fantastic interview with Mr. Uemura, I have a greater appreciation for him and for the concept of his company. Did you know that he is 79 years old, that he has extensive training in hair, makeup and skin care and that he has been working in the makeup industry for over 50 years? I find it incredibly inspiring to see a man with so much passion for his work.
To honor this milestone (although why not wait another year and celebrate the big 25?), he has created a special collection of sparkling cosmetics and accessories featuring fluid art by famed Japanese graphic designer Hideki Inaba.
The collection includes a lip palette (four lip glosses) a compact palette (with four empty slots), a makeup box (travel case) an eye & cheek palette (two eye shadows and a glow on blush), a set of false eyelashes (black lashes with yellow and pink accents) and a designer brush & makeup bag (comes empty). Just another reason to celebrate!
