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.
