Shu Uemura Exclusive Face Chart for Musings of a Muse

Hey guys!

I wanted to share this exciting news with you last week when I originally got it but I was too busy to recreate the look so I didn't want to post it without my spin on it!

One of the key makeup artists at Shu Uemura, Misumi Kitano, created a gorgeous exclusive face chart for readers of Musings of a Muse using the brand new Rebirth Collection! I was lucky enough to nab some of the Rebirth Collection for myself and it's delightfully Spring-like!

I didn't have everything that was used in the face chart so I improvised with some stuff from my own collection!

What was used in the face chart:

Glow on Harmonious Orange

Rouge Unlimited in Dewy Beige

Rocket Eye Pencil Energy Flow
Pristine Green Eyeshadow
Precise Volume Mascara Black

My dup of the face chart:

What I Used:

Milani Mineral Blush in Mai-Tai

Shu Uemura Rocket Eye Pencil in Aqua Flow
Shu Uemura Pristine Green Eyeshadow
MAC Pigment in Charteuse
Fairy Drops Mascara

Smashbox O-Gloss
Urban Decay Lip Envy in Envious

I'm happy to say that I got a chance to sample some of the Rebirth Collection from Shu and it's quite gorgeous. It's one of the few Collections that is very light and Spring-like! Many collections this year went for very bold and dramatic colors that didn't completely suit my taste for Spring but Shu came out with a beautiful range of soft Spring colors such as greens and yellows that are sure to suit the upcoming warmth of Spring! The title of the Collection is quite fitting as each spring their is a Rebirth and regrowth of life around us! Flowers, Trees, Etc...the colors and the name are well suited!

The highlight of the collection for me are the rather awesome stackable tri color pencils. These come in three colors that are stackable to create one easy to carry pencil. These are a very creamy pencil that can be applied as an all over color or an eyeliner! Two color combinations are available which are Energy Flow and Aqua Flow. Both sets include three color selections for $20 USD. These trios are Limited Edition.

Overall, the collection is quite lovely and worth having a look at! The Muse loved recreating the look from the face chart Misumi created for Musings! A big thank you to Misumi for taking time out to design the chart!

Check out Shu's Rebirth Collection at the Shu Uemura Website.

If you'd like to copy the face chart and do your own creation and share it with the Muse and readers of Musings of a Muse do e-mail it to me at!

Beautiful! I absolutely love this collection, it is my favourite collection this Spring. I could stare at the amazing makeup on the model all day and still be in awe. And it looks great on you - that green is fab on your eyes.

It's probably one of the very few collections that was very Spring like. I didn't want any of it at first but now I'm lemming the other shadows in the set. I think I'll grab all of 'em ;) The promo images were fab loved the yellow and green ;)

Aw thanks honey!

I am from Osaka. Just to let you know I love your blog. I enjoyed seeing your use of the green Shu shadow. It's my favorite of the collection and I hope to own it soon.

Your rendition looks perfect and spot-on. I tried doing my own version but my dark skin sucked up most of the colour so it doesn't really look like it. Check your inbox!
