Moe Oshikiri Japanese mascara commercial

Japanese model Moe Oshikiri in a commercial for D.UP mascara. Straight-forward message by making comparison of her “bare” face and her full makeup look.

Veteran model

Oshikiri is best known for her work with fashion magazines AneCan and CanCam. She made her modelling début when she was in high school, about 20 years ago.

Oshikiri is also an experienced emcee and hosted a few TV programs in the past. She also got into writing in recent years and has published a novel and a children’s book. The diversity is probably why she has such a long and successful career.
