The key to wearing this summer’s opulent jewel-like shades? Act audacious. Fortune favours the bold.
Kakuyasu Uchiide defines summer’s palette.
As sure as the first frangipanis bloom, that early spurt of hot days ushers in another rite: that of your summertime self beckoning from inside your makeup bag. You’re probably thinking bronzed skin and an array of punchy brights tick all the boxes, right? Not this season. Take a break from tradition and turf the tangerine — and instead, get inspired by the rich and sumptuous new options on offer. But how does one wear these un-seasonally-appropriate options and avoid looking overdone? Use the looks and tips on these pages, courtesy of makeup extraordinaire and Shu Uemura international artistic director Kakuyasu Uchiide, as inspiration, of course.
