Have you ever stopped to admire a Japanese beauty ad, or perhaps browsed a Japanese magazine and envied the doll-faced models on its pages?
Read on to know how to achieve the big, bright eyes and natural, flawless-looking skin that distinguish Japanese-style makeup.
We recently welcomed another Japanese brand that just might click with makeup lovers—Heroine Make.
Its collection of long-lasting eyeliners and mascaras, BB creams, powders, false eyelashes and eyebrow pencils recreate that fresh Tokyo makeup look.
Focus first on your complexion using Heroine Make Lasting Mineral BB Cream. Do not overdo your makeup base so that you can keep the natural look. The BB cream’s lightweight formula ensures that you don’t end up with thick makeup base, while still providing enough coverage to even out your complexion.
Lightly set the BB cream with Heroine Make Mineral BB Loose Powder, mainly on the T-zone or the oily areas. Then fill in your eyebrows using Heroine Make Quick Eyebrow pencil.
Heroine Make’s mascaras can steal the show—they are long-lasting, waterproof and smudge-proof. And the product easily comes off with a trusty eye makeup remover.
Heroine Make’s array of lash beautifiers include Impact Frame & Curl Mascara, Long & Curl Mascara, and Volume & Curl Mascara. Apply two or three coats of either one of these for full, long and fluttery lashes that will instantly brighten up your eyes.
Wear this with glossy peach pink lips for a fresh and clean daytime look.
For liquid eyeliners, there are the intense Kiss Me Heroine Make Impact Liquid Eyeliner or the pen-type Smooth Liquid Eyeliner, both of which are waterproof, sebum-resistant, and easy to use. Draw a line on your upper eyelid to create the illusion of bigger eyes, and glam up your look with a flash of bright pink lipstick.
Amp it up a notch and go for a more fashionable look with winged liner. Pop on a pair of false eyelashes and finish off with a nude lip. You’ll look like you’re ready to hit a Tokyo runway!
Heroine Make is available at SM Store Beauty Department and all Watsons branches.
