Conceptualised by makeup artist extraordinaire Dick Page, expect a colourful yet versatile palette that transitions perfectly with your Fall wardrobe

If there's one thing Shiseido makeup has developed a reputation for, it's versatility. Its products are designed for multiple use and fuss-free application. For example the Face Color can be used on either the entire face or just the cheeks, while the Perfect Rouge lipsticks are sometimes used by the brand's artistic director Dick Page as a cheek colour for his runway shows. Page has designed four looks for the season and our favourite is the warm and wearable browns in Winter Woods, proving that this oft-shunned shade looks great on Asian complexions.

For the upcoming Fall/Winter collection expect the same quality textures with some wearable, new additions. There are five new shades of the Shimmering Eye Color — from the warm grey Clay, to the subtle brownish-violet Garnet. You'll love the blendable texture and sheer, dewy finish. Finish off your eyeshadow with the new Full Lash Volume Mascara that's designed to give separated and super-dark lashes that still look natural — perfect for those who eschew the faux lash look.

For the lips, we love the subtle and mellow new shades from the Veiled Rouge Collection including the pale orange Honeydew and the pinkish red Zinnia. This sheer finish lipstick is not a huge colour commitment, making it easier to experiment with a brighter hue that is sophisticated enough for Fall.
