Some Japanese art with your beauty? The answer from us is forever a yes: clarity, simplicity and a meditative way with a brush – why not? Shiseido’s new make-up line has subtle references running through it, from tools handmade in the calligraphy tradition to eyeliners inspired by lacquer-shiny Sumi ink. Elsewhere in the range you’ll find delicate face ‘dews’ for sparkle-laced skin, vivid tones for eyes and lips, and a marshmallow-fluffy blush. Precise and joyful – count us in.
