Easy Gyaru Makeup & Hair Tutorials

easy gyaru hair tutorial, eye makeup

There are times where I wish I could do gyaru at work. The thing is that prioritise sleep over slapping my face on with makeup, which makes those weekends for dolling up even more precious. However I do want to be an everyday gyaru wherever possible so I spent the last few weeks collecting lots of easy hair and makeup tutorials on my tumblr under the tag "casual" where I included some outfits as well. But then I thought... Why not share this collection with my readers?

Below you'll find a whole set of hair and makeup tutorials that are great for the everyday gyaru/gal! I hope you find them useful!

Gal at Work


I used to do gal everyday, rain or shine. I never went out the house until I had at least my upper lashes on... But then uni happened. I reduced the amount of my gal make; first it was the lower lashes, then the nose stripe contour, whittling down until I finally ended up only wearing foundation. I chose sleep over makeup, because there wasn't any point to wearing gal make anymore if it was only to uni or work.

But after wearing these gorgeous upper lashes from Born Pretty Store I decided to give gal another try, and chose the day where I didn't have to go in super early to work so that I had time to do my makeup. I only had time to do a really light gal look and these lashes were absolutely perfect for that! They looked natural but not too natural, and I used my eyelash curlers to give them a bit of extra oomph.

Where Did the Sun Go?! Gal Day Out!

Hey guys! How's it going?

I've been feeling really down lately ;_;  I can't really pinpoint the reason behind it but I think it might be the weather? Could people's moods be affected by such a thing? Whatever it was, I felt constantly exhausted and just wanted to curl up in bed eating chocolate and watching films.

So I was really looking forward to finally seeing some of my friends that I haven't seen in a long, long time. However nothing seemed to go right that day; the weather was crap, my hair didn't turn out like I thought it would, and my lashes just wouldn't cooperate... I was experiencing almost every gaijin gyaru problem that there could possibly be! I got so fed up that I thought "Aah f*ck it" and just walked out the door and made my way to London.

This was my makeup and outfit for the day! Please excuse how crappy my makeup looks... And my hair... And my face in general ;_; At least my outfit was nice though! Would've looked better with my straw hat but blame that on the sh*tty weather.

I have to say that I do love these upper lashes though; they were from Born Pretty Store and really good for that "soft" appearance. You can get 10% discount with my code HORNH10 too!

Leaving Agejo Gyaru? New Adventures!

Hey guys! How's it going?

You may have been wondering why I haven't worn agejo lately... In truth, it's because I've gone completely off it. It's really sad because I've spent so much money on gorgeous MA*RS items and now I can't even think about wearing them anymore ;_; They're just hanging uselessly in my wardrobe. I just wore agejo so much that I felt tired of wearing it, and it's hard to create different outfits of the same item. I know that I do have a lot - and I mean a lot - of MA*RS to wear but everything just looked so similar so it didn't really feel like it.

I'm not too sure what to do about it so for now I'm just going to leave it. I don't think I can bear selling anything, but who knows?

Right now my heart has been captured by hime kaji and equally cute styles. I'm starting to love hime gyaru again, but I don't think I can go as far as wearing lots of La Pafait or Jesus Diamante. I've gathered lots of inspirational pictures on my tumblr but it's hard to do it without having any hime kaji/gyaru items! However, I've told myself not to spend too much on it otherwise it'll just be like agejo and MA*RS all over again, and I don't think my bank I can handle it. 

But it's been hard not to scroll through sites and drool over any hime-inspired items, so I thought that the best way to help me out is to create a wishlist! :D
