Spring ahead with Shu Uemura’s new Play Date collection
Put aside the vampy shades and get a headstart on spring with Shu Uemura’s Play Date collection

Fairy lights and tinsel may still be illuminating the streets with a decidedly Christmas air, but beauty buffs know that makeup waits for nobody and are steamrolling straight into spring. Leading the pack is Shu Uemura with the Play Date collection; a fun-loving edit of girly hues that recall the technicolour days of your youth spent playing hopscotch or honing your artistic instincts on a colouring book.

Shu Uemura Play Date collection

Filled with soft pastels and vivid pops of colours, this limited edition spring palette brings whimsy and carefree chic to the table with a nod towards experimentation. Can't wait to get your hands on this childhood-inspired face paint? Check out the top three picks from the collection that'll have you wishing for spring, stat:

1. Play Date eye and cheek palette
Give your eyes depth with bright metallic hues and pearl textures. Inclusive of three eyeshadows and a unique glow for that healthy flush upon the cheeks, this is the colour playbook to achieve that fresh femininity.

2.    Drawing pencil
Modern crayons that are part edgy and part playful, a trio of pastel shades invites you to get creative with your eyeliner. Either as a bold flick to make your eyes pop or smudged into your lower lash line for a subtle take, the ways to wear this trio are endless.

3.    Rouge Unlimited Sheer Shine
Inspired by the lusciousness of fruits, lips are given a luminous sheen with tonal hints in four summery shades. With a soft, shimmering finish, you'll want to tote around a shade in every purse for that full and irresistible pout.
