“When I opened a make-up box in Hollywood, I felt as if I had uncovered hidden treasures in a pyramid. It was this rush of excitement that made me determined to become a professional make-up artist.”
A few years later, he established his first cosmetic company and created the “unmask” cleansing oil and colorful cosmetics that would become shu uemura’s trademarks.
In 1983, Mr. Shu Uemura opened the doors of his professional make-up artist’s atelier to the public in Tokyo, Omotesando district. The stylish space featured more than 3000 professional products such as high quality skin care products, make-up, and accessories. The sleek, black and white space showcased the kaleidoscope of colorful make-up, and open tester tables encouraged women to touch, play, and enjoy.
The revolutionary offering of personal cosmetics from a professional’s selection sparked a sensation.
“There are as many colors as there are women…”
From the moment colors are added to her purified canvas, beauty blooms from her face. A unique personal beauty lies within you and blooms like spring flowers along with your hopes, dreams, and ambitions, just like Mr. Shu Uemura’s color-filled dreams in Hollywood.
