Get The Look – Eriko Nakao

Here is a Get The Look for Eriko Nakao. She has a very simplistic yet stylish look. Eriko is a Japanese model and super-blogger. Her ash blonde hair, unique style and tattoo’s make her stand out from the crowd , and for that… I love her!

Face – Her flawless skin and beautiful pale tone makes for a stunning look. For a shine-free, long-lasting base, apply our Matt Primer with a Foundation Brush all over the face to ensure your skin has an even finish.

The perfect foundation should make your skin look flawless without looking like you have foundation on, that is what Illamasqua Skin Base achieves. Using your shade of Skin Base (In Eriko’s case I would use a Skin Base 02, our lightest foundation after white), apply to the centre of the face and buff outwards using the Highlighter Brush for a natural coverage.

Eyes – Eriko tends to rock this nude look day to day. To create a similar soft grungey effect, usePowder Eye Shadow in Vernau lightly pressed over the eye lid and sweeping over the crease. If you prefer to use cream based products, apply Cream Pigment in Hollow with an Illamasqua Eye Shadow Brush or simply use your fingers for a buildable, water-resistant, highly pigmented finish. You can also use Hollow to create a subtle contour under the cheek bone or as she’s done in the image above, coming down from her eyebrows into the bridge of her nose.

To re-create this statement eye design apply Illamasqua False Eye Lashes in o2 to the lower lash line.

No look is complete without a beautiful brow, whether it be subtle or striking! For a natural brow like Eriko’s, lightly brush on our Eye Brow Cake in Motto using the Illamasqua Eye Brow Brush.


Lips –  Normally Eriko keeps her lips nude. To enhance a nude lip, apply Lipstick in Sonnet. For a more distinctive lip shade like the one she is wearing in the image above, wear Medium Pencil in Debonair (sky blue). Medium Pencils are one of our most versatile products. Their smooth cream texture smoothes onto skin to create sensuous lips, or sultry eye designs. We also have a variety of bright and bold Lipsticks made for those who refuse to be everybody. I love Illamasqua’s daring Lipsticks, especially Lipstick in Apocalips
