Makeup is originally a way of emphasizing the beauty of your natural features. For example, the eyeshadows allow to stress the shadows that you already have on your eye creases in order to bring more focus to your eyes. The highlights are applied on high places on your face such as your forehead, nose or top of cheekbones that naturally catch more light, so that the contrast of light and shadow is more obvious, etc.
As mentioned in my past post on Onsen, hot spring and its miraculous beauty skin effects, the Kawanaka Onsen in Gunma prefecture is one of the top 3 onsens rated for its results on the skin. As autumn is one of the best seasons in Japan to go to the mountains, as you can enjoy the colourful autumn leaves, I decided to go and check by myself the famous Onsen with a friend.
Hair styling can be as wide as make-up or fashion. You can change your look by wearing different hairstyles, according to your mood or occasion. Mid-length hair is especially easy to handle.
