Japanese Traditional Makeup


Japanese traditional makeup is part of Japanese culture, which has fascinated many people around the globe. Although many people love to learn more about the Japanese culture, they have little idea about traditional Japanese makeup.

Japanese traditional makeup is seen in geisha and kabuki makeup and the first step in applying this makeup starts with the cleansing of the face. Once the face is properly cleansed, you have to apply an oil called Abura. After application of the oil, you have to use a wax called Taihaku, which is primarily put to block out the eyebrows. It is only after this that the white color is applied on the face. This color is known as Oshiroi, which literally means honorable white. Oshiroi is made up of white rice powder and several minerals like zinc and titanium.

In geisha makeup, the Oshiroi is applied just below the hairline in very sharp outlines. It is also applied on the ears, around the neck. The application of Oshiroi should form a distinct giant “W”. On the other hand, in Kabuki makeup, the Oshiroi should be put in such a way that no skin is visible.

In geisha makeup, after the application of Oshiroi, the rest of the makeup is applied based on the age and experience of the geisha.

There are many specialized websites that sell Japanese traditional makeup. But, if you are looking for a step-by-step guide on how to apply Japanese traditional makeup, you should check out a website called Mitsuyoshi Professional Cosmetics.
