Shu Uemura’s Blossom Dream Range for S/S’13

by Katie on February 25, 2013

While we’re zoomed through images on social media of the new Autumn/Winter catwalk collections, it feels very much like Winter here. Grey bitter cold days and drifting snowflakes aside, we’ve not so much emerged from one Wintery hollow into the first light rays of Spring than we’re beamed what we will be wearing next Winter. Ah, fashion’s a hard life. Then there’s beauty.
Keeping our hopes up with a light and bright collection that could put a smile on any girl’s face is Japanese stalwart, Shu Uemura with the release of their limited edition Blossom Dream range.
Chief International Make Up Artist, Yuji Asano, has created a pastel rainbow of colour that lifts and soothes with it’s pure pleasure. Pastel floral shades and diverse textures are inspired by feminine Spring flowers and are Midsummer Night’s Dream light. Add to that ethereal air with Shu Uemura’s Blossom Dream rainbow feathered lashes, to really get you noticed.
Lipstick colours go from nudes to bright oranges and a hot selection of matte reds and pinks whilst the eye colour palette I tried combines the palest sugared almond like blue, lilac, pink and green. A light swoop of colour worn against a bright cobalt or Schiaperelli pink outfit would look fetching indeed. The palest hues balancing against the smouldering streak of hot lips to highlight the outfit.
Shu Uemura’s wonder product has to be the spf30 UV under base mousse. A whipped light foam that literally lightens the tone of skin, evens out texture and shimmers with radiance. Apply your normal base foundation atop and this lifts it to illuminating Spring like proportions. It is, quite simply, a find.

Combining matte and shiny textures, Shu Uemura transforms pale into interesting with this Blossom Dream range. This Limited Edition packaging range also features a new interpretation of the Shu Uemura unmask logo design. As collectible as covetable.

Rouge Unlimited Matte Lipsticks are £19 each. Rainbow feathered lashes are £34 a pair (large) and £24 a pair (small). The Unmasked eye palette is priced £50 each while glow on blush is £16 each. UV Under Base Mousse is available in pink or beige and priced £29. All available at Shu Uemura, Selfridges.
