Moon Prism Power, Make Up is the first command that Usagi Tsukino used to transform into Sailor Moon. It is her first transformation phrase in the anime and manga, while it is her only one in PGSM.



In the anime version, Usagi uses her Transformation Brooch. She first raised her hand and, from episode 7 onwards, her nails then sparkled and turned pink (before episode 7, only the front of Usagi's hand was visible). The focus turned to Usagi's face as her eyes blinked open, then the perspective pulled back to show her entire body outline, obscured by glowing colors with only her brooch visible. Usagi spun around several times and translucent pink ribbons wrapped around her body, forming her leotard, gloves and boots. Her skirt appeared, and she spun again as her tiara gem appeared on her forehead; the focus then moved close to her face and her tiara and odango covers materialized. Sailor Moon finished with her final pose.


In the live-action series, Usagi would strike a pose and call out "Moon Prism Power." She then waved her lipstick in front of her brooch, which made it light up, and applied the lipstick to her lips. She finished the phrase with "Make Up!" as she swept her arm over her head, turning her hair blonde and making her hair accessories appear. She held a pose as she spun several times, her entire body glowing, and her leotard appeared. She waved her hands over her legs, making her boots appear, then held up her arms as white ribbons wrapped around them, forming her gloves. She crossed her arms in front of her chest and her choker materialized, then she spread them wide as her bow and skirt formed. She slowly moved into her final pose, her tiara appearing as her hand passed in front of her face, and finished in her pose as a crescent moon shone behind her.


  • The background music was changed in the English dub of the anime to the Moon Crystal Power music. Though some repeats in local syndication restore the music to it's anime version in Japan.
  • The Portuguese dub of the second version of the transformation was slightly edited. In this version, when Usagi said her transformation phrase, a frame of the back of her hand (without the nail polish) was freeze framed. After she said the phrase, it zoomed in on Usagi's thumb and then it zoomed out and played the scene were Usagi's nails turned pink/red. The dub also added extra sound effects to the transformation.
