Pho­tog­ra­pher-film­maker Mika Ni­na­gawa on

her third col­lab­o­ra­tion with Shu Ue­mura. Why the theme ‘In Beauty Won­der­land’? To me, make-up is a way to open the door to the un­known, the mag­i­cal el­e­ment that takes you from your reg­u­lar life to an un­known new world. The sense of ad­ven­ture that ac­com­pa­nies this jour­ney is what I wanted to ex­press. Your Shu Ue­mura es­sen­tials? I love the false eye­lashes, and I’ve been us­ing the cleans­ing oil for a long time. From this collection? The spi­ral eye­shad­ows. Pho­tog­ra­phy phi­los­o­phy? I only pho­to­graph when I’m moved to do so. A photo has to have soul. All the things I want to con­vey are vi­su­alised through my im­ages. If people feel happy look­ing at them, I will be very happy. The Mika Ni­na­gawa x Shu Ue­mura In Beauty Won­der­land collection is in all Shu Ue­mura stores. Your thoughts on the beauty of Asian women? They com­bine strength and flex­i­bil­ity, and that is true beauty for it has the power to draw people.
