Its from My Geisha. That is one of my all time fav movies! Smile This reminds of of when I got my first katsura in the mail. The first thing I said when I saw my self in the mirror was " Oh my god I feel like Shirley McClain"

PostSubject: Makeup links   Thu Oct 18, 2012 6:51 pm

What an amazing tutorial. I would love to try this for some informal party! Geiko

When I dress in katsura and formal hikizuri, I have never attemped to try and "pass as a japanese woman." I have to wear corrective lenses to see, so colored contacts are prohibitively expensive...

The idea of attemping to change the shape of my eyes hadn't occured to me, mostly because none of the western women living in Japan, and working as Geiko and Geisha ever did this. I wonder why not? Perhaps they were asked by their Okaa-san not to, as their faces were part of their charm? Very western faces are not seen often in the Karyuukai, so perhaps this is something that might bring customers to their okiya?

I do not know. I have always used makeup to shape my eyes as Geiko do, with long lines of black to tilt up and down, pale pink to highlight certain curves and shadows against the stark white of the oshiroi, and of course the red to bring ones eyes and mouth out against the white. The effect achieved in the movie is very interesting! <3

PostSubject: More images from "My Geisha"   Fri Oct 19, 2012 3:11 pm

I found a few more images from the movie, and of Ms. Maclaine before the transformation -- I thought I might share them here:



I love this last image, because you can really see the difference in style, dress, hair, makeup, everything that was done for this excellent movie "Geisha." Thank you for sharing these original links Komatsu-san!
