Traditional Japanese Wedding, Fukuoka, Kyushu, Japan.
Donning a traditional wedding kimono is a complicated procedure.
Makeup is a key component and it is only applied by experienced
professionals. Here the young bride receives a second layer of red gloss
on her lips. The red contrasts sharply with the pure white kimono and
the white matte covering the face and hands. The red is also used to
augment the shape of the lips which will be artificially tapered and
given more volume in the center.
