‘Tis the season to be collaborating!  And we’re loving Shu Uemura’s 2018 Spring Artist Collaboration with Yazbukey, the queen of iconic, bold and edgy lip motifs: “c’est ahh lips.”  Reprising her 2015 partnership with the brand, the Paris-based jewelry designer has helped create a limited-edition lip collection.  The “mattitude collection” updates Shu Uemura’s signature matte Rouge Unlimited Lipsticks, with 16 fashion-forward shades in four color ranges: sexy red, lovely nude, quirky pink and edgy merry.  Still offering beautiful finish, vibrant color, and melting texture, each design is accessorized with a special playful lip motif designed by Yazbukey.  Additionally, the pair have launched four magic metallic lip liners!  A first for the brand, applied to matte lips, a simple swipe creates a luxurious statement!

It has been Cherry Blossom Season throughout much of Asia.  None has been as celebrated as the flora of Japan!  Women, like the one pictured at the Shu Uemura counter at Isetan Tokyo, are seen wearing bold shades of fuchsia on their eyes.  To emulate the look, Yui (pictured) applied a pale pink shadow to the lid and below the inner corner of her lower lashes.  Creating a halo above the crease with fuchsia pigment, she extended the color to the outer corners of the lid and then lined a portion of the lower lashes.  To complete the look, she lined the upper lashes in a dark shade of purple and applied several coats of black mascara.
