7 Japanese Makeup Practices And Secret Information

Japanese Makeup Practices

Japanese women are well-known worldwide for their beautiful skin. It is amazing how they can manage to look younger than their real age. It is essential to notice that Japanese women take care of their skin and hair continuously. They eat right, dress nicely, and apply softer makeup.

Japanese makeup is fun and elegant. So if you are ready to follow your favorite J-pop idol makeup secrets, let’s begin!

1. Skinny Brush Mascara

Japanese women love the eye-opening look, and that’s why they prefer to use skinny brush mascaras to capture even the shortest lashes to lengthen and extend. INNISFREE Skinny Microcara Zero uses a unique design with a micro 1.5mm brush to neatly curl your eyelashes.

The Innisfree Skinny Microcara Zero is waterproof, and it provides a lightweight finish without a heavy or clumpy feeling.

The best way to get the eye-opening look is to start at the eyelashes’ roots, moving upward in a zigzag pattern.  

2. Eyelash Curler

A terrific eyelash curler is a must-have for Japanese women. One of the Japanese favorite beauty tools is the SHU UEMURA Eyelash Curler. This fantastic eyelash curler is the best on the market, as it provides the perfect curl and lifts, without causing damage to your lashes.

The SHU UEMURA Eyelash Curler comes with an improved silicone pad and high performance to create a natural, beautiful curl.

3. Smooth Gel Eyeliner

If you want to create flawless cat-eyes, you need to use gel eyeliner. The Japanese way to apply eyeliner is to start your line wherever you feel comfortable and place the liner tip as close to your lash line. Use small movements to draw dashes along the lash line. Don’t forget to apply your eyeliner thin in the inner corner, and thicker toward the outer corners.

Try TONYMOLY Back Gel Eyeliner Long Brush, which allows more control and precision than a liquid eyeliner. This amazing formula will last for up to ten hours without any transfer or need to reapply.

4. Smooth Base

One of the essential elements of your makeup application is having a smooth base. Using a makeup primer such as INNISFREE No Sebum Blur Primer is perfect for preparing the skin for makeup application.

The MISSHA Magic Cushion Cover Lasting gives your skin perfect coverage with sun protection. It is a must-have J-beauty tool that has a lasting formula with a semi-matte finish. It helps your makeup last longer as it controls sweat and sebum for hours.

6. Lip Tint

Lip tints do it all as they moisturise the lips while providing color and shine. The primary goal of lip tints is to keep the lips moisturised all day long since they are made with various hydrating ingredients.  

Choose a lip tint with pigmentation so you can have a softer lip or get dramatic.

My favorite is ETUDE HOUSE Dear Darling Tint, which comes in 12 colours and they provide a lasting glow to your lips. Dear Darling Tint can brighten your expression. You can choose a red hot look for partying and Sweet Potato Red if you are feeling romantic.

All of the triples are wearable and feature a highlight shade, a light lid shade, and one slightly darker shade.

To get The J-beauty look, use your finger, pick up all three colours, and then start from the eyelid’s inner corner and spread over the eyelid. You can also apply MISSHA Triple Shadow with a brush or sponge.  

Remember, you can use the colours individually to create your desired look.
