Amy’s birthday party ☆ experimenting with jirai kei make

Posted on

Hey cutie! How are you? (´ ε ` )♡ It was Amy’s birthday party yesterday and the theme for it was vampires and witches and I thought… What better time to practice jirai kei makeup!

But instead of going for pink shades, I went with red instead. I also filmed this grwm for my YouTube channel which I’ll post later on (when i have energy to edit) ♡

The best selfies were taken in the car haha (*ノ∀`*)

Jirai Kei inspo!

It’s my bby Amy’s birthday party coming up so I want to take this chance to do Jirai Kei properly, which is why I decided to do an inspiration post which I can use as reference for when I do the makeup/hair/overall look. To be honest, I’m really excited… Don’t get me wrong; I love gyaru with my heart and soul but I also want to try something different every now and then.

What is Jirai Kei?

This Jfashion wiki explains it in a lot more detail but Jirai roughly translates to “landmine-type” which derives from “jirai onna”, a derogatory term to describe girls that look as if they have an emotional breakdown at any moment. It’s really not a nice phrase, but these girls took it and turned it onto its head and it evolved into the jfashion that we know of today (a darker girly style).
