Graffiti on make-up

Shu Uemura's latest make-up collection, Haute Street, takes its cues from bold street art.

For inspiration, the brand's international artistic director Kakuyasu Uchiide turned to the colourful graffiti of New York-based artist Oyama Enrico Isamu Letter, a prominent figure in Tokyo's underground art scene.

Emblazoned with Letter's signature graffiti motifs, the new line includes two colourful eyeshadow palettes, four lip and cheek tints, and two double-edged eye colour pencils. Prices start from $33 for a lipstick.
