“MAKE SMILE TRIP@Miwonderful”, 2015, Publisher: Shufunotomo Co., Ltd.

What is your plan in the near future and what is your new project?

My first book “Make the World Smile by Makeup: MAKE SMILE TRIP@Miwonderful” is going to be published on June 26 (Shufu no Tomo Sha). This must be one of my turning point of my career. Entertainment music video “Make no How to (How to Makeup)” (DVD) is going to be released in this fall.

What are you going to do in the 10th Thanks Giving Makeup Event; “Makeup Restaurant” on July 2nd?

I met a lot of precious persons in the beginning of my activity. SOSO café was the one where I met many people. Graphic designer, DJ, track maker, movie creator, performer, etc… They were who I never meet in the field of makeup. Those encounter made me realize there are more free and interesting expression. It provided me the opportunity to have makeup activity at clubs, festivals, and other worlds than the beauty field. “Thanks Giving Makeup” is my self produce event and I always set a theme for each time.

I wanted to name the event after my memories and thoughts. Because it is such a memorial timing that I publish the first book, I finally titled it as “Thanks Giving Makeup”. Considering how to express this event: people can experience participatory makeup and the entertainment essence, I set the concept as “Makeup Restaurant”. In the event, cosmetics are served on each participant’s table. Miwonderful provides makeup lesson with original soundtrack. You can’t miss the arrangement of the cosmetic plates, her dance and live performance.

Lastly, please tell the readers your message.

The world of Miwonderful is getting interesting from now. To make entertainment by makeup is my dream! I want to try world tour of makeup live performance someday. I want to try more and more fun things with the pink flame. I launch my information via facebook and twitter (@miwonderful). If you have trouble with your makeup, please send me a message. Let’s make friends! Make Smile!
