February/March 2009 – shu uemura’s 128th mode make-up collection ‘Mirage’, is an optical phenomenon that gently arises like a mirage. Enhancing the uniqueness of every woman’s face, natural positions of light and shadow are accentuated using expertly chosen palettes of color and contrasting textures. Utilizing the concept of Impressionist painting, colors appear randomly placed when viewed up close, yet with distance, the effect creates a lasting and clearly defined image. Wavering on the eye and cheek, brushstrokes of colors and texture gently enhance each part of the face, creating outstanding dimension with sophisticated combinations of light and shadow.
