Unlike the harsh contouring and heavy eye makeup in the West, the Japanese makeup style is more subtle and wearable for everyday life. An ideal Japanese makeup look consists of flawless and natural-looking skin, a healthy lit-from-within colour on the cheeks and lips and big bright eyes often with the help of contact lens.
