Photographer, occasional model, visual artist.
Shu Uemura has partnered with award-winning filmmaker Wong Kar-Wai for their new holiday collection (you can watch the video here), and I was hired to cover their new line’s preview and release party. Their amazing new line is full of brilliant colors, and I noticed how it was mainly made up of blues and purples, with much emphasis on the eyes while keeping the rest of the face pale. I love the look that the artists came up with! Lots of interesting people at the party in Opus, had such a good time covering this one!
So I’m giving away three Shu Uemura eyelash curlers (because of that line from Devil Wears Prada, and since people keep telling me that Shu Uemura makes really good eyelash curlers!) here on my blog, and all you have to do to join is to follow a few simple steps!

Actually, when I think of Shu Uemura, this memory of a scene in Devil Wears Prada pops up. It’s the scene where Gisele Bunchen (as Serena) is talking with Emily about Anne Hathaway, who is the new recruit at their company and she goes, “Tell me about it. We were in the Beauty department and she held up this Shu Uemura eyelash curler and said ‘What is this?’”. I don’t know why that line stuck in my head. But for some reason it did. So that’s where I got the idea to give away the Shu Uemura eyelash curlers!
(special mention, thanks to my lovely girlfriend for keeping me company at the party, i love you babe!)
