If your aim is to be dazzlingly radiant with a glow not unlike that of a goddess for this festive season, you know you're going to need that special makeup collection to achieve the look. Enter the Shu Uemura x Murakami Cosmic Blossom collaboration, where vibrant florals hint at Christmas magic and a colourful cosmic beauty is the order of the day. Envisioned by Takashi Murakami — one of Japan's most prolific contemporary artists — to be an imaginative and evocative collection impressed with his iconic flower motifs, this is pop art-meets-makeup to fuel your creative spirit.


Featuring limited edition eye and cheek palettes that pack pigmented hues, two purse-friendly eyeshadow trios as well as a four-piece brush set in an adorable pouch; every product is wreathed with a kaleidoscope of lively blooms. Cult legends like the Anti/Oxi+ cleansing oil and the Shu Uemura eyelash curler are also given an artistic, flowery twist courtesy of Murakami. And what better enticement is there to play up your festive looks than with delightfully charming packaging and gorgeous shades to spur you on?

A visual feast of floral magnificence, we're sure that beauty junkie or not, you'll be totally ready to take brush to palette and immerse yourself in the collection. And if you need a sprinkling of inspiration, here are three looks to get your beauty groove going:
