June is International Pride Month, and we're celebrating with a brush + book giveaway! The brush is a Chikuhodo PS-1 Powder Brush, from the brand's luminous Passion Series. The book is the recently released This Monk Wears Heels by Kodo Nishimura, a Japanese Makeup Artist, Buddhist monk and LGBTQ Activist.
Born in Tokyo 1989, Kodo Nishimura graduated from the Parsons School of Design in New York. After graduating, he started to thrive as a makeup artist, working behind the scenes of Miss Universe and NY Fashion Week. In 2015, Kodo trained to be a monk and was certified by the Pure Land school. He rose to fame following his appearance in Queer Eye: We're in Japan. He spoke at the United Nations Population Fund, Yale University, and Stanford University as an LGBTQ activist, which attracted wide coverage on the likes of CNN and the BBC. He was selected by TIME magazine as a Next Generation Leader. His mission is to empower all people sharing Buddhist wisdom with a touch of makeup.
Now, this celebrity make-up artist and ordained Buddhist monk shares his unique and practical guide to positivity and self-acceptance. Readers will learn from the author’s path to self-love and resilience and modern take on Buddhist teachings.
This Monk Wears Heels is a guide to self-love, self-acceptance, and taking a Buddhist approach to life. Kodo Nishimura reveals how inclusive the Buddhist teachings really are—and that, yes, it is possible to be a Buddhist monk and do makeup and wear sparkly earrings. This book is about being who you really are, totally unapologetically and with full conviction. It will show you how to shine in your own colors and be celebrated for yourself.
