This post is brought to you by our friends at shu uemura. There’s a reason they call beauty professionals “artists.” Though it may not feel like art while you're running out the door, swiping on mascara at the very last minute, somewhere there was an inspired makeup artist whose influence contributed to its creation. Here at Makeup.com, we’re huge on wearable beauty trends that are inspired by true artists.
So naturally, we were overjoyed to get our hands on the new collection “mika for shu,” a collaboration between shu uemura and renowned Japanese photographer and film director Mika Ninagawa, who’s known for her dreamlike use of bright colors. Inspired by the artistry of shu uemura and its iconic lashes and lipsticks, Mika created four vivid wonderlands, which were then used as a starting point for the entire breathtaking beauty collection.
With the help of beauty extraordinaire Elyse Reneau, a true artist in her own right, we used these products to create the perfect look for a girl’s trip to Vegas, a bachelorette party or prom night.
