Base Makeup Products: Japanese Cosmetics Ranking 2020

Best Base Makeup Products to Buy in Japan 2020–2021

Are you into Japanese beauty culture? Looking for the latest and the most trending beauty products in Japan?? Then you should definitely check out the Best Cosmetics Awards by @cosme!

@cosme is one of the biggest online beauty portal sites in the world today, where you can get the latest and most reliable information about Japanese beauty products. The website hosts the cosmetics awards twice a year in June and December, introducing the latest rankings of the best cosmetics products chosen by real users in Japan. These awards are extremely popular and influential among cosmetics fans, and winning products tend to become even more popular or sell out quickly after awards are revealed.

In early December, The Best Cosmetics Awards 2020 Year-End has been announced! Today, I’m sharing the latest rankings of top three products from the base makeup category including sunscreen, primer, foundation, BB cream and face powder. Let’s check out 2020–2021’s most trendy and popular base makeup products to create perfect, flawless skin!
