Shu Uemura x Takashi Murakami Collection For Holiday 2013 (1)

“ART IS A WAY OF LIFE”

Mr. Shu Uemura’s attitude and ideals are an intrinsic part of the brand’s DNA today. Creativity born of a free imagination and new esthetic standards are at the heart of the brand’s spirit, spurring us on to seek further evolution and unprecedented, timeless beauty for women of all ages.

In a quest to constantly innovate and render universal beauty, since 2004 Shu Uemura has united with creative visionaries who are globally renowned masters of various art forms.

SHU UEMURA x TAKASHI MURAKAMI

For the final artist collaboration of 2013 — the 30th anniversary of the brand — Shu Uemura presents an exclusive holiday collection featuring artwork based on upcoming animation series “6HP (Six Hearts Princess)” directed by Takashi Murakami, an internationally renowned master of contemporary art and leasing icon of the Tokyo art scene — an artist who displays the same uniqueness of vision and creativity as Japan’s explosive master of beauty and colour, Shu Uemura.

“6HP” was first previewed at the “Murakami Versailles” exhibition in France in 2010. With this work, Takashi Murakami has captured the essence of the adventures of magical “majokko” (magical witch girls) in animated form. “Majokko” has remained a popular animation genre in Japan for more than a half century; in this world normal girls magically transform into super women to fight the enemy or to solve problems. The new animation work is Takashi Murakami’s modern re-interpretation of this genre, subliminating aspects of Tokyo’s “otaku” subculture and the worlds of cosplay and manga (cartoon in Japanese) into an artwork.

For this unique collaboration with Shu Uemura, Takashi Murakami took inspiration from his “6HP” animation, creating exclusive packaging featuring pink and black princesses and their magic mascots. He also directed and produced a special animation, “6HP Six Hearts Princess Pink or Black.”

CONCEPT
TRANSFORMATION OFFERING DUAL BEAUTY
PINK OR BLACK?

“6♥PRINCESS by Takashi Murakami for Shu Uemura” reflects the timeless and universal theme of the transformation of feminine desire to reflect another, inner self; the parallel universe between real and surreal, the dark and light sides that exist in every woman.

In collaboration with Takashi Murakami, Shu Uemura introduces a holiday collection that offers “dual beauty”.

This contemporary makeup collection focuses on the “paradox” of pink and black princess characters as feminine icons — because every woman has a duality within, nice and naughty, innocent and sexy. Explore further dimensions of your charm, your pink side and your black side. Play with the possibilities of multi-faceted beauty and transform into your other self.

PINK PRINCESS MAKEUP TIPS

Creating the pure, romantic and feminine impression of the pink princess, round curves rather than straight and sharp lines are a must around the eyes.

By using pinks around the eye, the entire impression can be too soft. So, in order to avoid a blurred impression around the eyes, create gradation between the dark and light shades of Heart-Full Parallel Palette and highlight on top of the eyelid to create dimension. Sharpen the eye frame line with brown and pink highlights in the center. Using the romantic colours from the Lip & Cheek Fun-tasy, enhance the feminine impression with round shapes.

Drawing a round line around the lip frame gives a plump and soft impression.

BLACK PRINCESS MAKEUP TIPS

To create a cool and glamorous impression, straight and sharp lines are a must. However, in order to keep the princess-like image of the animation character, incorporate a romantic element such as soft feathers or a spiral design with a Black Jewel On The Wing on the area that grabs the most attention — the eyes. Skin is semi matte in texture; add glow on top of nose line and cheek bone for a glamorous look. Brush the cheek brush sharply under the cheek to enhance the shadow with Lip & Cheek Fun-tasy.

Or contrary, use the fuchsia pink or red for lips and draw straight lines to sharpen the corners of lips but be sure to balance this with other parts of the face by drawing feminine curves lines around the top of the lips.
