Who doesn’t love a pretty makeup packaging right? I’m a sucker for anything cute, pretty, pink and exquisite design. What I didn’t know or realise is that Sulwhasoo special edition compact powder foundation – Shine Classic is released once every year since making it’s debut in 2003. This year, the focus of Shine Classic design will feature the Mother-of-Pearl, a modern reinterpretation of Korean aesthetics that combines luxury and tradition.
I just died looking at these!
Sulwhasoo collaborated with artist Hyun Kyung Lee in designing the 2014 Shine Classic. Hyun Kyung Lee uses small reactangular fragments of the Mother-of-Pearl for the design on the case, to envision a plum blossom design. To add a modern touch to the Shine Classic design, rectangular pieces which represents elegant Korean women are applied into the design to express a more natural and beautiful plum blossom rather than a plum blossom in curves. Translucent white plum blossom is placed on top of the background design to further enhance the natural colours of the Mother-of-Pearl. Pistils of plum blossoms are then placed right at the centre as a symbolisation of elegance and dignified beauty. This unique combination proves to be one contrast design.
