Shu Uemura teams up with Mika Ninagawa
Shu Uemura has taken on the vibrant colors of Mika Ninagawa’s photographs in a new Summer 2014 makeup collection.
The Japanese cosmetics brand has renewed its partnership with photographer and director Mika Ninagawa for the Summer 2014 season. The resulting makeup line is a journey into the artist’s brightly colored world.
The Japanese photographer teamed up with Shu Uemura for two collections in the past, in 2008 and 2011, before delivering this third line.
With its spirals, rhinestones and flashy colors, the collection is a direct reflection of Ninagawa’s distinctive photographs.
The makeup line includes two spiral eyeshadow duos ($50), two lip and cheek tints ($39), a pressed powder compact in a limited edition case ( $68), multi-colored false eyelashes with rhinestone stars ($33) and nail stickers ($18).
In addition, the collection includes several cleansing oils and under base mousses in limited edition bottles designed by Mika Ninagawa.
The Shu by Mika collection will be available in stores from May 21.
