My Make-Up Bag
M.A.C. Eye Shadow
Shu Uemura Pressed Eye Shadow
Clinique Stay-True Makeup Oil-Free Formula
Shu Uemura Cream Blush
Kiehl's Vital Sun Protection Lotion SPF 30
Dr. Hauschka Cleansing Milk
Kiehl's Supremely Gentle Eye Make-Up Remover
Lancôme L'Extreme Waterproof Mascara
Stella Lip Gloss
Skincare
Kiehl's Supremely Gentle Eye Make-Up Remover and Dr. Hauschka Cleansing Milk to give a mini-facial at the end of each day. For exterior shots, Kiehl's Vital Sun Protection Lotion SPF 30 was used under the make-up.
Foundation
Mix of M.A.C. Foundation in 15, Clinique Foundation in Ivory and a Shu Uemura shade. A wet sea sponge was used to mix it and apply it very thinly.
Concealer
The same foundations were mixed without the sponge (so they were undiluted), then applied with a very thin brush. The key is not to overuse it.
Powder
Giorgio Armani and SK-II.
Blush
Shu Uemura Cream Blush in Peach.
Eye Shadow
Shu Uemura Eye Shadow in Peach, M.A.C. Eye Shadow in Ivory as a reverse shade to see where the darker shade was needed, then M.A.C. Eye Shadow in Taupe applied lightly.
Eye Liner
A little gray and brown liquid liner. For the young look shown here, it was smudged immediately. In scenes when the character needed to appear older, Watanabe extended the line to accentuate the eye shape.
Brows
A mix of brown and gray. Pencil or powder would work.
Mascara
Lancôme waterproof mascara. Brushed the lashes with a clean brush after applying so just color remained, no texture.
Lips
Applied foundation with lip brush to create lip shape instead of using liner. This makes lips appear natural and plump. Gloss is Stella Lip Gloss in Peach.
Highlights / Countour
Shinto 8, which is a very dark color, was used to accent bone structure.
Additional Information
Contacts: Blue-gray contacts were worn.
