Thanks to a backstage tour by Shu Uemura which did the makeup for the Redken Shapes & Shadows show at the recent Audi Fashion Festival, I was given a sneak peek at Ethnocolor Scope, the new Shu Uemura Tokyo Lash Bar 2011 collection.
According to Shu Uemura’s international artistic director Kakuyasu Uchiide:
“Vitality is the key word for ethnocolor-scope. I wanted to create a warm, pulsating beauty, evoking the richness of human life through the theme of this collection: the intricate decoration of exquisite handicrafts. At the same time, I also wanted to give it an urban look.”
Inspired by tribal designs, these eye-catching and unique lashes incorporate complex textures and multi-dimensional colours with fabric, thread, beads, feathers and diamantés – some of which are detachable. Concentric bands, tassels and patches enhance the ethnic feel and it is easy to see why the brand likens this lash collection to traditional tribal handicrafts.
Below are close-ups of these lashes:

This fash-lash splash will be available at our local counters in July 2011. Shu Uemura’s special falsies have to been known to fetch high prices on eBay, so covetable are they. As such, it’s best not to hesitate when these are launched!
