Model Tsubasa Masuwaka, 27, was Japan's "make-up ambassador" at the Japan Expo 2013 in Paris this week.
Masuwaka gave a lecture to young French women on applying eye make-up. The lecture was presented by Cozy Honpo, which promotes Masuwaka's make-up brand "Dolly Wink." Masuwaka demonstrated how to apply "tsukematsuge" (fake eyelashes).
Sankei Sports reported that there were over 1,200 French women in the audience and they were all impressed by Masuwaka's make-up skills such as making "natural droopy eyes."
Masuwaka also participated in a product promotion booth and posed for commemorative photos. Some girls burst into tears out of excitement at seeing Masuwaka, Sankei reported.
"This is my second time visiting France. I've always loved France. When I first participated in the Japan Expo, I remember I was amazed by French girls' simple yet sophisticated fashion sense," she said. "They know how to turn their fashion style on and off for each occasion."© Japan Today
