Beauty World Tokyo Part 1: The Shoot

The biggest beauty and spa show in Japan. Every year, Beauty World showcases the hottest trends in skincare products and gadgets– thousands of people descend on Tokyo Big Sight to check out what’s going to be on the shelves next year.

The biggest trend? Natural everything. Organic, all-natural products. YAY. I’ll do a product post later this week after I’ve tried some of these goodies out.

I did double duty at the show: I went to write a roundup article for GaijinPot so expats could check out the beauty buzz, and I worked as a model for my makeup artist pal Yuki Haba, hair master Asuka Higaand rockstar photographer Ryo Onodera. It was way too much fun. 🙂

Here are a few shots from the work we did for Atelier Raison— a professional makeup artist product company in Tokyo.

Asuka is a hair genius. I want her to come over to my house every morning and braid my hair.


Yuki used stencils and a Temptu airbrush for the effects. I love the way Temptu feels!

Next week I’m shooting with Yuki and Ryo for a creative test— both of these guys are absolute masters. So excited to see what we come up with! Oh! And you can check out more behind-the-scenes shots on my FB page.
