This past month or so has been a nightmare for me in terms of gal makeup; after my day at expo my eye got really red and swollen, a sign that I had an allergic reaction to the glue. You could imagine my despair, and since then I haven't been wearing any false lashes as I'm still testing out different glues to figure out which one's best for me.
You could say that because of this, I've been pretty depressed. I have gone days without makeup and my confidence spiralled down dramatically, but now I've started to emerge and I'm slowly picking that confidence back up. Luckily I've rediscovered my love of makeup without having to use false lashes, fully relying on mascara and eyeliner.
I'm not too sure where I'm headed but for now I'm quite comfortable not doing full-on gal makeup and wearing onee/mode gal clothes. It sounds really dramatic and pathetic but I keep over-thinking that I would never be able to do gyaru ever again. I mean, what is a gyaru without lashes? I still love gyaru, but I want to make sure that my eye is okay before I do anything else. I still do contouring but my makeup is taking me the more non-gal route. I have fallen in love with Yuria Kushido and her dark lips, so wanted to try it out myself and put together a mode-gal coord. The top from Persunmall is absolutely perfect for this look, and I can see myself wearing it a lot more.
