What’s in My Gyaru Makeup Bag?

Hey cutie ♡ 你好小可爱! How are you? Today I want to share with you what’s in my gyaru makeup bag as part of Bay Area Kei‘s “Bibliotheca” monthly blog theme! I can’t actually remember the last time I did a post like this, and so I wanted to share the products I use, especially because I have to find those that would work well with my sensitive skin/eczema.

Help – I Can’t Live Without Gyaru Makeup

And in that moment I felt so alive.

I turned my face to check if my blusher was visible enough and of even vibrancy on both sides (it definitely was – I might as well have emptied the whole block of colour onto my face) and my eyes occasionally flickered up towards the beautiful lashes that framed them. Gosh, yes, it felt good. With one last slick of lipgloss my war paint was complete, and I was ready to tackle the world.
