This beautiful very old photograph depicts a Woman Dressing in Japan.
Take a glimpse into the past. A woman putting on her makeup in Yokohama at dawn.
There’s something about the early morning hours that just makes people feel alive. Maybe it’s the freshness of the air, or the quietness of the world. Whatever the reason, Yokohama is a great place to witness the magic of traditional makeup application.
As the sun began to rise, the streets of Yokohama gradually came alive. Women were bustling about, getting ready for the day ahead. Some were getting ready for work, others were getting ready for their day out.
The city of Yokohama in 1890 Japan was a vibrant and growing metropolis. The city was a major center of commerce and trade in Japan. It was known for its beautiful Shinto shrines and gardens, as well as its commercial districts and busy port. The city was home to a large Japanese population as well as a large number of foreigners. There were several schools and hospitals in Yokohama, as well as a great number of businesses. The city was also home to a strong military garrison.
One woman dressing, wearing a a traditional Japanese kimono, was applying her makeup. She smiled as she applied her mascara, eyeliner and lipstick, taking care to make sure her makeup was perfect.
The beauty of makeup is that it can be used to make any woman look beautiful. Pastel colors and simple forms are combined ideally in perfect amounts.
