FAQ

hello lizzie bee, lizzie bee, gyaru blog


After quite a long time of wanting to do this, I'm finally writing up my FAQ/Q&A post!

These are the questions I have collected throughout my blog, Tumblr, FB, etc. that people have asked quite a lot of the time so I can just redirect people to this post when the same question has been asked again. 

How tall are you?
I'm 165.5cm (so I'm actually quite short).

How did you find Gyaru? When did you start dressing it?
I found Gyaru purely through Google; I used to like Lolita (but never really dressed it) and I wanted to look for something similar that was more wearable. That's when I found Hime Gyaru and a couple of days afterwards I discovered all of the other substyles of Gyaru. That's when I started dressing Gyaru-kei and went on to experiment with lots of different styles. So I guess I started dressing it like a couple of months after finding it, and also when I started this blog!

What other styles of Gyaru do you like?
I'm a bit of a style chameleon when it comes to Gyaru as I find that I pretty much like all of the styles. If I did have to choose one, however, my main style would definitely be agejo. 

Would you ever try Manba?
It's not really my thing so no I don't think I will. I know some people who rock it but in my personal opinion that style has died down to be replaced by a more updated version, tsuyome/96GAL.

What inspires you in Gyaru?
When I first found Gyaru I was immediately in awe of their massive eyes and beautiful lashes, and when I learnt that it was just circle lens and false lashes. I have “typical Asian”  lashes where they point downwards so they never ever curl, and I was jealous of my sister who had gorgeous long ones so false lashes really helped me out.
I also really like the way Gyarus carry themselves and I longed for that same confidence! I’ve still got quite a bit to go but I’m getting there :D

What lashes do you normally wear?
This keeps changing according to how I feel but my favourites are Twinkle Lash Sexy Eye and Ageha for uppers. My taste in lowers keep changing too but I always fall back on Decorative Lash Sexy Eye (which is now gone forever *sobs*) when I can't decide on what to wear.

What are your favourite Gyaru brands?
MA*RS is a definite favourite and is the only brand that I like despite my many style changes. I also like Liz Lisa to get my himekaji fix, and "normal" brands like Miss Selfridge.

What makeup products do you normally use?
I showed my current favourites in this post here: "What's In My Makeup Bag?" However I will be updating this very soon.

Are you in a Gyaru-sa? Are there any in the UK?
Unfortunately no. We used to have quite a few in the UK but not in the last few years - the community is just too small but it's better for us as we can all hang out together.
