Celebrity Makeup Breakdown: Mika Nakashima 中島美嘉

For Aria 🙂 Singer Mika Nakashima on the cover of her 7th single, Love Addict.

Skin should be kept glowy. Use a tinted moisturizer to even out any redness and concealer to cover up imperfections. Apply a peachy coral blush along the cheekbones.

Keep your eyebrows slightly lighter than your hair color by using a tinted brow gel. Apply a shimmery violet eyeshadow (try MAC Mancatcher) from the center to the inner corners on both top and lower lids. To create the illusion of Mika’s almond eyes, run a brown eyeliner along your top and bottom lashlines and extend the past the corner of your eye. Apply several coats of mascara to finish the look and remember to pop in a pair of blue contacts.

The lips should be left bare with just a little bit of clear gloss.

    Hi =) I’ve been reading your blog for quite some time now and want to thank you for all the tips you’ve been posting up. I have a question, before putting on concealor, other than putting on eye cream to keep it from going on smoothly, do you think it’s a good idea to put on some sort of base? People use some sort of make up base before they put on foundation, so would it be a good idea to put it under your eyes as well? Thanks! – Vanessa

    Yah the loose powder trick does work. All you have to do is sweep on a layer of loose powder under your eyes before you do your eye makeup and then sweep them away when you are done.

    hey Vanessa, sure you can use a primer before concealer. Simply dab on a bit of your foundation primer around your eye area to make your concealer go on smoother and last longer.
