Un regard rétrospectif sur l’histoire nous montre à quel point le Japon a évolué dans son utilisation et son application de produits cosmétiques. Au fil des années, il y a eu beaucoup d’influences asiatiques et occidentales qui ont largement joué un rôle dans la façon dont le maquillage a été appliqué. Du look classique, au looks occidentaux, dans les années 90, la ganguro, et plus récemment, le maquillage “haafu kao”, cela montre juste à quel point le maquillage peut être versatile et comment les tendances peuvent vraiment influencer l’apparence extérieure.
Happy New Year 2017 to all of you! I hope you had wonderful celebrations and that you are full of hopes and exciting challenges for this new year! While I was on holiday in France, talking with a friend about LGBT community increasing in visibility and awareness, gender and sexuality, I came to think about the universalization of beauty.
Looking back in Japanese makeup history, it is amazing how much Japan has evolved in its use and its application of cosmetics. Over the years there were many Asian and Western influences that largely played a part in how makeup was applied. From the traditional Japanese makeup, geisha look, to Western looks, in the 90’s, the ganguro, and in the more recent years the “haafu kao make”, this just goes to show how versatile makeup can be and how trends really can influence one’s outer appearance.
It’s been a long time since I last posted about make-up. It’s time since a lot of things are going on, especially about lip make-up! What are the new techniques? What new cosmetics to use? Here we go: Canmake Lip Tint Sirop
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.
