His colourful, explosive style of clothing and makeup is certainly unique. KANATA perfectly matches the trippy atmosphere that is the 6%DOKIDOKI shop, where he currently works. In his spare time he creates YouTube videos showcasing his amazing makeup artistry (check out his channel here!) He is heavily influenced by cyber style and is a huge fan of the brands Cyberdog and Space Tribe. Anything cute, colourful, and over-the-top is totally his thing, so that includes Lisa Frank and the Teletubbies, too! We asked him a few questions about his makeup and style.
How would you describe your look? Not just your fashion style, but your makeup style too.
My fashion and makeup styles are original. I usually go with my mood at that time. When I decide on a look, I do it without looking in the mirror. Factor in my makeup and I can be a bit of a mismatch all together. But, I think that is what makes me original.
Favourite makeup brands?
My favourite is NYX professional makeup.
What is your advice for people wanting to improve their makeup skills and trying to find their makeup style?
Determination is essential in makeup. Even if you mess it up, the final product can be wonderful if you think of it as a form of art! It’s important to do your makeup like you think it should be done even if you can’t, initially, do it very well!!
Apart from fashion and makeup, what are some of your hobbies? Anything particularly unexpected?
I like bicycles so I ride sometimes.
Which country do you want to visit the most?
Finland! I want to meet Santa Claus!
What are your future goals and dreams?
I want to create and produce my own cosmetics brand!
Any last words?
I love dogs!
