Shupette by Karl Lagerfeld for Shu Uemura


There’s no better muse for the perfect cat-eye than the most famous feline in fashion: Choupette Lagerfeld. The well-groomed pet is the inspiration behind Shu Uemura’s latest holiday make-up collection.

The Japanese beauty brand’s artistic director, Kakuyasu Uchiide, described her as “a real girl” and “imagined her like a model” in order to create the line, which boasts a mix of products inspired by the snow white long-haired cat.

Three highlights from the Shupette by Karl Lagerfeld for Shu Uemura range include:


Shupette Has-It-All Eye & Lip Palette

A shiny palette with bright eyeshadows, lip colours, brushes and a mirror, neatly packaged in a fur casing


Eye-Need-Shu Trio

Two separate eye palettes (in Shupette Blue or Tokyo Kawaii, each with three shades) to create a colourful cat-eye


Pampearl-Me Face Powder

A colourless, shimmering powder that gives a glow to eyes and cheeks
