shu uemura has always been known for our intricate and artistic false lashes. whether it may be natural lashes, lashes for a slight accent or the dramatic collectable lashes, shu uemura has always been the go-to to decorate our eyes. i’m always so excited when a new season arrives because i’m curious to see what our international artistic director kakuyasu uchiide, has designed.

for this spring 2013, it’s all about colour. splashes of pastels and vibrant primary colours have been seen all over the runways. on point with the trends, shu uemura’s spring dream blossom collection has two beautifully designed colourful, feathery collectable lashes: rainbow feather S and rainbow feather L.

the rainbow feather L lashes are so fun for those artistic makeup lovers out there. of course they are not day-to-day lashes, but they are definitely lashes that makeup artists love to have fun with! the long colourful feathers are perfect for an artistic photoshoot. the eyeshadows from the same collection are perfect for creating a backdrop for these lashes (click here to read about the eyeshadows). the shadows should be applied all the way about the brows and onto the temples; makeup artists can really play around with blending and colour placement to accentuate the lashes.

these playful lashes were also featured in the march issue of loulou magazine in the beauty trends section.

the rainbow feather s lashes are a little more subtle compared to the rainbow feather L, although still pretty dramatic! but these lashes can be worn on a bold fashionista as the bottom layers of the lashes are black, so when eyes are open, an accent of soft colourful feathers can be seen above the long black lashes. (click here to see how they look on). they are basically like the slant black shu uemura lashes, but decorated with fluffy colourful feathers.
