A different kind of bold
Like their Western counterparts, the beauty lovers of Japan aren’t afraid to go bold — glossy and striking pinks, reds, and oranges are a popular choice colour for their lips. But if in Western-style makeup, we’re used to lining the lips for a more emphasised pout, here in the East, the colour comes with a blurry effect for a more health-infused look.
