卡娜(SCawaii!) April 2012
step 1: Depending on the shape of your lips, in order to create a flawless lip-enhancing effect, first choose a moisturizing product as base. (in other words, use lip balm or lip gloss to moisturize)
step 2: On the completely moisturized lips, dip a q-tip into a foundation liquid and use the five dot method as shown above to conceal the lips.
step 3: After the foundation is evenly spread out, apply with a lip brush a concealer that is one shade darker to the outline of your lips.
step 4: Now apply nude lipstick to your thoroughly prepared lips. Also highlight the middle/peak of your lips with a highlighting eyeshadow.

Q: What’s your life moral？
A: Do what one promises; treat others nicely.
Q: In magazines you always have the role of a gentleman/someone who takes care of others, are you someone who is manly in her ways in your daily life?
A: Uhm, how do I put it? My close friends all say I am a weakling who likes pretending to be strong.
Q: Yet during photo shoots you are a pace-leading force?
That’s because of my personality: weak but cannot let go of other people’s problems. Bascially, I am someone who likes to challenge things other people would find difficult - a twisted sense of justice as some might call it. For example, when I go out to eat with girls, I would definitely let them have the sofa seats.
Q: Someone you cannot forgive? (i.e. serious pet peeves)
A: People who cannot follow common sense; people who don’t say “thank you”. Well, although I would become angry from this, my anger disappears once I walk away.
Q: What’s your way of making yourself more Kawaii (in this context, a better person)?
A: Face myself honestly. However sometimes I am unable to because it’s too embarassing; I’m working on it. *laughs*
Q: Who do you think is a honest and Kawaii person?
Reina! When I was taking the taxi with her and another girl, Reina said: “Reina doesn’t want to sit in the middle~”. So I said: “Then I’ll swich with you”. I think if I was a boy, I would be pretty popular with the girls; I’ll definitely be one of those men who put down the toilet seat when they’re done. They’re very caring. *laughs*
