With the advancement of aesthetic sense, various contents are being overflown with a lot of beauty information. As a result, you often wonder which beauty tips are important to you, don’t you?

This time, we will review the three stories from the first half of the year through a special report. Along with “behind the scenes” of the shooting, we tried to summarize the parts that many people were interested in in an easy-to-understand manner.

#Story 1 'The Latest Makeup Trend・2017'

In the first story, while trying KATE’s newest products, we challenged ourselves to try 2017’s makeup trend. As a global brand, there is only a lot of support from women, KATE is also a step ahead by introducing the latest beauty trend. Instead of focusing on one part of the face, KATE’s favorable reputation is makeup that allows for total transformation that changes the overall atmosphere and depth.

The best shot at the center intersection of Tsutenkaku!

This is the famous "Shinsekai" (meaning "new world"), it's known for being the place where you can see the Osaka's observatory tower Tsutenkaku. 
Although it is famous for being a gourmet spot, it is an area where you can sense Osaka's particular street scene, so many tourists visit. In fact, we ran into two different couples taking their engagement photos here!!!
A bride and groom wearing Japanese traditional wedding wear posing with beer mugs in one hand and grilled chicken in the other! There is no doubt that it will be a special marriage photo that will be never be forgotten ;)
