Japanese Kabuki Abura

Abura for Geisha makeup and Kabuki makeup. Abura is a wax like substance, which is applied to the skin to act as a base or "key" for the Kabuki Oshiroi, white paste (Shiro-Nuri). It must be used under the Kabuki Oshiroi, otherwise the Shironuri paste will not apply properly. It is the secret to not only the foundation but the longevity of Kabuki makeup, Maiko makeup and Geisha makeup.

Soften the the Abura in the hands and apply usinging the base of the palm. The palm of your hand gives good friction and eveness to the application. All of the face and all other parts to be coated with white paste must be covered.

Before using Abura, a heavier wax, such as, Taihaku must be used to flatten and make a smooth surface over the eyebrows. This is done so that the eyebrows can be concealed with the Shironuri or Oshiroi, in preparation for the "painted" eyebrow of the Geisha and Kabuki actor.
