Achieving the geisha look
THE DELICATE porcelain beauty of Japan's geisha is certain to send women to makeup counters this fall to mimic the look of Ziyi Zhang and Li Gong in "Memoirs of a Geisha." Fresh is prepared with its "Memoirs of a Geisha" collection, available at Sephora, Ala Moana.
One of the highlights is a Beauty Face Palette ($38) featuring "Portrait of Lady Blush Cream," which gives a soft coral glow to cheeks, "Premier Rose Satin Luster" for delicate shimmering highlights on the brow bone and temples and "Desire Gloss Absolute" for lips. Complete the ritual of transformation with "Memoirs of a Geisha" shimmer powder (pictured) with crushed pearl ($38) for a luminous glow.
