Kanako Takase

Makeup Artist

THE IMPRESSION 50 ONES TO WATCH – 2019
50 Female Creatives Representing the Next Generation of Talent as nominated by our network

Kanako is a make-up artist who was born in Tokyo. She has made her name in New York thanks to a non-conformist approach and dizzyingly diverse portfolio.

With asymmetrical smatterings of paint for Eckhaus Latta one week and muted, frosted tones for Misbhv the next, the Tokyo-trained former first assistant to Dazed’s beauty editor Yadim has forged an impressive career since moving to New York from Japan at the age of 22.

Since her first big gig in the US, interning for make-up legend Pat McGrath, the Japanese artist has worked with Rick Owens on his texture-heavy SS17 collection campaign, Saint Laurent, and Mario Sorrenti.
