As a Hollywood makeup artist in the 1950s, Shu Uemura began applying the principles of visual art to the face. In 1964, his transformation of actress Shirley MacLaine into a geisha for the film My Geisha branded him one of the industry’s most sought after talents, and led to his eponymous makeup collection. Over the next half century, his vision expanded to holistic skincare, accessories and, in 2007, SHU UEMURA Art of Hair.
Nature, art, and science are one rock star trio. SHU UEMURA's formulas don’t just yield glam, visible results; they also draw upon natural, scientifically proven elements like plant-based oils to condition hair. Depsea water, a key SHU UEMURA ingredient, comes packed with nutrients from the deep seas around Japan.
