I'm completely obsessed with Shu Uemura. Ever since I was at school I used to save up and go to the Harvey Nichols counter and buy their amazing eyeshadows. They are packed full of pigment and look great on all skin tones especially darker skin tones, as many brands don't put enough pigment in their products -so they look washed out and ashy. As a beauty journalist I was lucky enough to meet the legendary Mr Shu Uemura himself and he was the sweetest most zen, kind man and artist and is one of the reasons why I love the beauty industry so much.
This season backstage at London Fashion Week at the Sass and Bide show I saw this new Shu Uemura eye shadow called G bronze, £14.50, www.shuuemura.co.uk, from the spring collection and I got that butterflies in the stomach feeling I used to get when I rocked up to the Shu counter as a kid. The lovely Pr (bless her) gave me one backstage (to probably stop me drooling over it) and I am lovin' it. It's a shimmering bronzy/gold colour, which can be worn by itself or on top of another base colour to bling it up, which is fab. Grab one as soon as it comes out!!!!
