Kame, the beauty charisma?




KAT-TUN’s Kamenashi Kazuya is aiming to be a beauty-charisma. There are even plans for him to publish a make-up book.

“People in the industry have always praised Kame for his make-up skills. There was even a rumor that leaked about how Kame’s professional make-up artist quit because he/she saw how great Kame was with a make-up brush and lost his/her confidence in cosmetology.” Said an entertainment insider.

Kame came up with his own make-up technique by himself. He has even claimed that he would never let a pro teach him how to put on make-up. This interest in make up has even spawned some cross-dressing rumors in the past.

“When he has a day off, he’d dress up in women’s clothing and make-up by himself. He enjoyed those times immensely, so he wasn’t concerned about becoming good at it.”

Tabloids claimed that Kame first developed his interest in cross-dressing when he had to try women clothes on for a fashion magazine three years ago. It is said that Kame likes London-style bisexual clothing (I’m guessing they mean androgynous?) But it seems like Kame has another reason about publishing this make-up book aside from sharing his love for cosmetology.

Actor Mokomichi has a corner on ZIP! called MOCO’s Kitchen that averages around 12-13%, a pretty high number for a morning talk show. Later, inspired by the corner, he published three recipe books that sold more than 250,000copies! As a consequence, Mokomichi became popular amongst housewives.

“Kame is aiming for the same business plan as Mokomichi.” Kame aims to fill the niche of bored housewives who have the TV on in the morning while doing house work. Mokomichi gained popularity again by taking part in the 3min cooking segment. As a handsome man, it is rare for a guy like him to find enjoyment in activities traditionally done by women. Kame saw the possibility in exploring that niche market by being an idol that can introduce simple make-up techniques to women.

Tabloid, you failed sir! He has never been featured crossdressing in any fashion magazine.

But I'll definitely buy this book, if it ever be published. <3!!!

Thought so, that AnAn issue focused more on the androgynous side expressed through makeup, so I wouldn't count it as a cross-dressing issue :D

I don't think that AnAn is crossdressing. I mean, he only wears make-up. So, yeah.. that is not crossdressing. Maybe ^^;

That's why I said if you count it.
some say it is, some say it isn't.
I have the issue and it says boy on one page with a 'normal' Kame and girl on the other with him with make up and a more girly style...
