Markus Lupfer and Shu Uemura hook up

Markus Lupfer is having a fashion and beauty moment. Madonna has chosen to wear customised versions of his Star Intarsia jumper in the art work for her new single 'Give me all your luvin'. And now, Shu Uemura has announced a collaboration with the German-born designer.

The limited edition empty palettes are adorned with inky leopard print (that featured in his spring/summer 12 collection) in three shades: pink, blue and mint. Each palette costs £10 and can hold up to four pressed eye shadows, £11 each; or two glow on blushers, £16 each. The genius palettes allow you to choose from an endless amount of product combinations so you can get your exact make-up match.

'It’s a dream come true for me to collaborate with Shu Uemura, I love the colours and textures that Shu Uemura has to offer, and feel that both our brands have such a similar spirit,' says Lupfer.

London-based Markus Lupfer became a catwalk regular at London Fashion Week in February 2003 before working as design director at Armand Basi until 2009. He's created capsule collections for Topshop (his sequin-embroidered jumpers are ELLE favourites) and he counts Lily Allen, Roisin Murphy and Daisy Lowe among his celebrity fans. So we're ecstatic that our make-up bag will soon be getting in on the Markus Lupfer action in the shape of customisable Shu Uemura palettes.

The limited edition Markus Lupfer palettes, £10 each, will be available from 19 February. To get on the waiting list call any of the following stockists: Selfridges London (020 7318 3962) and Old Trafford (0161 629 1218), Brown Thomas Ireland (+353 1605 6666) and the Shu Uemura boutique in London (020 7240 7635), as well as online at shuuemura.co.uk.
