I have allowed myself 1! Just 1! Christmas season make up collection. When I saw the Shu Uemura and Aya Takano LE collection in Space NK today I couldn’t help myself for 2 reasons:
1. Despite myself, I rather like Aya Takano’s weird cute yet disturbingly distorted pervy world.
2. I like Shu Uemura.
“A lot of people think that I make direct references to sex in my drawing, but that’s not the case,” she says. “The characters I draw just happen to be naked at times”.
Now for my confession, I do think that the graphics on the collection are well……tame as far as Aya’s work goes! I can’t help wondering if so many would still rush out and buy these items if Shu Uemura had chosen more risque images from her such as these:
ooooooooooh missus! What d’ya make of that?!
