This year marks the 40th birthday of Takako Uehara, who made her debut at the age of just 13 as a member of the dance and vocal group “SPEED” that dominated the 90s. In mid-May, she was spotted at the “Beauty World Japan Tokyo 2023,” one of Japan’s largest international beauty trade fairs, at Tokyo Big Sight (Koto-ku, Tokyo), at the event booth of the cosmetics brand “REVI,” for which she serves as a billboard. Uehara was serving customers at the event booth of REVI, a cosmetics brand for which she is a billboard.
Uehara had reported on her Instagram page last August that she was going to work as a beautician in Okinawa. In September, Uehara became a billboard for REVI, and she actually began performing treatments and sales activities at REVI’s retail stores.
Uehara, wearing a white one-piece dress with an official pass hanging from her neck, was actively talking to visitors to the booth. A woman who visited the venue and said she was a fan of “beauty expert” Uehara said, “Uehara-san said, ‘I am a fan of foundation,
She is so beautiful that it is hard to believe she is 40 years old, and I was thrilled to talk to her.
I was so excited to talk to her.
Like this woman, most of the women who visited the booth were there for Uehara, and every time they saw her they would say, “She’s beautiful! She is beautiful! The booth was a great success. However, some of them said, “She looks so skinny,
I was surprised to see how skinny she was and how different she looked from her speedy appearance. Her cheeks are so flabby, Your cheeks are flabby, and your arms are so thin…”
Some were concerned about her health. Some reports said, “It won’t be long before she is back on TV as a charismatic beautician. It seems that her second career is off to a good start, but we hope that she will take good care of herself for that purpose….
