‘Cause I’m on top of the world, ‘ay

‘Cause I’m on top of the world, ‘ay

 

(wow this is a really late post… nearly 10pm! Has to be my latest one yet)

Some of you may/may not know that I have finally discovered my style… Agejo!

It’s all thanks to MA*RS really; if I hadn’t started buying MA*RS then I wouldn’t know how much I would fall in love with the brand and the style, so much that I actually want to do agejo for real. I always liked agejo but I was a bit scared of it and that it would never ever suit me. But I guess it never hurt to try it out!

I’m not going to wear MA*RS everyday because I haven’t got a lot of MA*RS items, and MA*RS is an extremely expensive brand so I’ll probably be broke for the rest of my life, aha. I’m going to dabble in other brands to help me build up my wardrobe because it’ll be boring just to stick with MA*RS (beautiful as it is) so I’m going to look for GOLDS Infinity and also at stores near me. Stockings, cute handbags, heels, accessories… Anything that doesn’t break the bank really! 

I’ll probably talk more of my goals and things in a future post or even in small posts on Tumblr… Not too sure just yet. 

Anyways, enough of that, here’s my most recent coord! I went to Cosmo with my family and decided to doll up for it :3

Dress: MA*RS, Necklace: DiDepux, Earrings: Muse,
Stockings: Primark, Heels: Dorothy Perkins

There has been a few discussions floating around about wearing no circle lens… So here I’ve not worn any lens to prove that you can still be gal without them! 😀

Please ignore how tired my eyes are! Had a really early start and long drive ;_;
Upper Lashes: Jewerich no.2
Lower Lashes: Diamond Lash Baby Eye

Ooh I’ve also downloaded an app on my phone that lets me create collages! Here’s one of my look and my full coord as well as makeup 😀

And a final picture of me and my sis 😀 <3

Oh yeah you know how I said I wouldn’t spend for around a month? Yeah, that didn’t work out so well. I went along and bought another MA*RS dress that is due to arrive soon. I can’t wait *_*

Anyways I guess that’s all I have for today! My eye has been messing up – again – but I still have a few posts lined up for you all ;D

 

 

FAQ

FAQ

 

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.

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, Boohoo and Missguided.

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?

I sure am! Myself and my friend Wib have co-founded QueenE gyarusa, which consists of the lovely Kei, Rachel and Laura. We’ve had a few meets together since forming our circle, and you can read our first ever meetup here.

Gyaru Romantic Makeup Tutorial!

Gyaru Romantic Makeup Tutorial!

Et voila, here is the long-awaited makeup tutorial done by the lovely moi (“makeup tutorial?” “Ah oui”).

I’ve been getting quite a few people asking me to create an eye makeup tutorial so I thought, why not? I had taken these photos quite a while back and didn’t really want them to gather dust, so I neatened the edges and created a picture makeup tutorial. The reason I’ve done a picture one rather than a YouTube video is purely because I really don’t know how to take makeup videos without obscuring part of my eye. I am really amazed at how people do it!

Now that I’ve decided on a day to post, I’m finding it really hard to choose what to post! I still have to create one on my New Years Resolutions, and then I’ve got a gal meet that I went to yesterday to talk about as well.

Kind of makes me think whether or not I should post twice a week but I know that uni work is gonna’ make that really hard to do. Ho hum pigs bum!

Anyway I hope you like this tutorial and find it useful!

I Feel Like A Chameleon; My Gyaru Wardrobe

I Feel Like A Chameleon; My Gyaru Wardrobe

I’m still not sure where I’m heading style-wise, and when a friend asked which style I would like to go for I replied: I’m a bit of a chameleon when it comes to gyaru; I tend to like and wear all styles.”

And it’s true; I really do like all of the substyles of gyaru that I just can’t stick to one! It’s a bit annoying though because then I’m spending loads of money on different kind of clothes rather than saving up and buying only those that fit the substyle that I’m in. Guess I can’t really help it.

But I need to stop buying clothes! It’s crazy how much I lurk on gyaru sales to find items that I want to get my hands on even though I really shouldn’t be spending. To help myself out a little bit I went along and gathered all of the clothes that I thought were gyaru-suitable and have taken pictures to show y’all 

my gyaru wardrobe!

Although most of these are brand items, I have thrown in some non-brand stuff like clothes from New Look, Miss Selfridge etc. Unfortunately I have missed quite a lot of clothes so I think that I shall do another post!

This has kept me motivated in staying gyaru and just trudge on, even through the rough patch that I’m going through.

See ya’ next time I guess!
