There are endless archives of gyaru makeup tutorials out there; whether it be through old magazine scans, on Pinterest, or on YouTube, but it can be disheartening to read/watch when you have Western features. You might feel like it is impossible to do gyaru when you’re not Asian but I’m here to hold your hand and to tell you, gently, that you’re wrong. It is possible for us to do gyaru makeup, and I’ve gathered some Western gyaru makeup tutorials that my fellow gaijin gyaru (non-Japanese gyaru) have done, and left their links in case you want to check out their blogs/YouTube channels… So, enjoy!
The thing that I made me fall head-over-heels in love with gyaru was how much attention they put into their hair and makeup, and so I wanted to create a part two of my “easy gyaru makeup and hair tutorials” series (especially with how successful part one was). This will be perfect for you if you’re thinking of adopting the everyday gyaru lifestyle or are on holiday and don’t necessarily have a lot of time to get ready.
Please note: these images were gathered from various corners of the internet – I don’t own them! Though can safely say that some were from the amazing GAL REVO which I highly recommend checking out for mag scans.
