Style Obsession VOL.003 on Tuesday, January 15, 2013 @ 8:49 PMToday on Style Obsession, I want to talk about the Shironuri (白塗り) subculture, mainly model and artist: Minori
Shironuri (white face makeup) dates back to the Heian era in Japan, and later with geishas. Though I would probably never pull off this style of makeup, I have so much respect for people who have turned it into a modern subculture and a beautiful art form.
I've always come across pictures of Minori on tumblr and thought that she looked so cool. Her makeup is so intricate and pretty. I also love that she has photo shoots with nature themes. TokyoFashion even had a video feature on Minori.
In the video, she has very inspiring words for people who want to continue what they love doing, despite what society expects them to be, and it makes me respect her and look up to her so much more!
