The Pink Prince Issue 005

“When in 90’s Tokyo”

When envisioning Japanese youth culture we think colour, freshness and fun but with an edge. For this story Katie drew inspiration from Japanese beauty ideals and subcultures, whilst incorporating 90s vibes and colour palettes. Placement was key with the makeup designs, symbols mimicking freckles and haphazardly arranged motifs signifying care-free behaviours. These traits are synonymous with youth and my aim was to portray them in a beautiful way that utilised the model’s facial features and expressions.
