Geisha Makeup, something simple yet unique

How did Geisha Makeup come into use?

As far as the history goes, it is believed that a geisha is a professional Japanese entertainer and hostess. In China, a white face signifies prosperity and so most of these geishas used white face makeup. So, eventually this sort of makeup came to be known as Geisha makeup and this culture continues even today.

How to apply Geisha Makeup?

As usual, first you need to clean and dry your face. Then, apply a moisturizer to protect your skin from Geisha Makeup as mostly this makeup makes your face dry.

Next, you apply a white foundation up to your eyebrows, but not too thick. It is best to use ivory foundation and then apply white powder on it. The foundations should extend up to your lips also as this help your lipstick to stay longer. Wait for your foundation to dry and then apply red blush on your cheeks as it gives fullness to your cheeks.

Your entire eye should be outlined with thick eyeliner followed by eye shadow from your eye to your eyebrow line. And you end up applying minimum three coats of mascara on your eyelashes and dark red lipstick.

Learning to do Geisha Makeup

Geisha Makeup is deep rooted in Japanese history and culture. But, it is easy to learn how to apply this makeup and definitely there is no doubt that it is far more than a Halloween costume.

One aspect of Geisha makeup is that it is quite heavy and needs a lot of practice. So, applying this can turn out to be quite tiresome and so you need to be totally precise as one small slip while applying can make the whole thing appear unauthentic and odd.

It is always advisable to master the traditional way of doing Geisha makeup.
