This is yet another Asian beauty trend dedicated to the famous Japanese dessert.

Mochi is a smooth, non-shiny ball of glutinous sweet rice. There are not only white, but also multi-colored mochi, resembling the rainbow. What do you need this information for? This particular treat proves to have become the inspiration for makeup artists around the world.

Beauty-maniacs consider “mochi” to be firm, but at the same time delicate, matte skin without wrinkles, peeling, pimples or folds. It does have some radiance and is also compared to the child’s skin. The new effect is also compared with the previous big trend – mirror (or dolphin) skin, but the difference is that mochi is primarily a velvet texture. It is shiny to a much smaller extent.
