Calling all beauty junkies- get ready to mix up your makeup arsenal this season with a whole host of Asian inspired beauty products. After all, the Japanese sure know a thing or two about looking good- in a country where six-step skincare regimes, a full face of makeup, and the quest for the ultimate humidity-defying mascara are daily feats- we reckon the humble Japanese pharmacy could hold some serious beauty secrets…

What’s more, Japan has been the birthplace of many recent skincare products- think BB and CC creams, essences, cleansing oils- you name it! As New York based Japanese makeup artist Maki Ryoke explains, “If a drugstore product is not good and cheap, it won’t survive. It’s a very severe market (in Japan). It’s the only place you can find high-quality makeup for super cheap”.
