Hair & lifestyle products, perfume, fake eyelashes, and handmade make-up brushes – welcome to the enigmatic world of SHU UEMURA. Shu Uemura (19 June, 1928 – 29 December, 2007) was a Japanese make-up artist and founder of the uber-famous cosmetics line which bears his name.
STILLSTARS : “A perfect fusion between product colors and Asian textures gives Michael Brunn’s latest story for Shu Uemura that unique commercial je ne sais quoi.”
Shu Uemura sold his company to French cosmetics giant L'Oréal in 2004 for an undisclosed amount of money. At the time of his death, the company had stores in Paris, New York City, London and Hong Kong, as well as outlets throughout Japan. The shoot took place at Studio Astre Paris, with styling by Suzy Kim from New York.
