AKB48's Mariko Shinoda stuns public with her natural look

22 February 2013 / 3 years 8 months ago
AKB48’s Mariko Shinoda became the subject of considerable praise after some of her photos -- taken prior to her becoming a part of the girlband -- without an outer hull of makeup applied emerged, reports Sankaku Complex, with admirers gawking at her natural beauty.
Pictures of Shinoda prior to her acquisition by AKB48 have been circulating online as well and seem to suggest her lack of reliance on makeup may yet have other explanations.

The rare appearances of other AKB48 members without heavy layers of makeup and Photoshop have generally been held up by idol watchers as outstanding examples of the beguiling power of makeup, although AKB48 apparently rely more on their musical talents and firm grips than their looks.
