The Harajuku Look

In Get The Look on November 12, 2008 at 11:24 pm


Harajuku (原宿 “meadow lodging”) is the common name for an area in Tokyo, Japan that is known internationally for its youth, style, and fashion. Harajuku street style is promoted in Japanese and international publications such as Kera, Tune, Gothic & Lolita Bible and Fruits.

In The Makeup LOVES this look right now. So, here is how to get it:

CHEEKS: Use a creamy pink lipstick as a base. Blend it over a large area on the cheek and then “set” the lipstick by gently dusting on blush. Then, layer the blush with a sweeping motion until desired pigment is achieved. Try Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited lipstick in Soft Rose Shimmer topped with Shu Uemura blush in Pink 30.

LIPS: Rouge Unlimited Crystal Shine in PK 301S, Gloss Unlimited in BG 930N

EYE MAKEUP: A beige matte shadow and a black eyeliner. Try Shu Uemura Pressed Eye Shadow in M Beige 800 and Drawing Pencil in Black

EYELASHES: First, curl them. Then mascara them in a basic black. Then, put on some Shu Uemura Soft Cross Lashes for a real Harajuku look.
