When You Wish Upon A Star

Every year, Shu Uemura decides to work with a Japanese artist for their Holiday collection. This year, the brand has chosen to collaborate with fashion designer Tsumori Chisato.

The collection is reminiscent of Antoine de Saint Exupéry's "The Little Prince" and derived inspiration from the cosmos. The packaging shimmers and depict images of the designer's favorite Japanese icons "lucky cat" and "twinkle star"

For make up, the designer chose to combine soft colors and sparkling shades, which include bright pinks, silver and gold.

The collection serves as a breath of fresh air for the brand, with previous collections that have been bold and shocking. It's milder, a lot more cuter and could appeal to a younger market. I honestly think that this year's Holiday collection will be more memorable than last year's Mika Ninagawa collaboration.
