Makeup gets ☆

Finally got the chance to go shopping today! (´• ω •`) ♡

I’m kind of worried about my local store though because they didn’t have a lot of stock… I was incredibly lucky to get what I got.

Definitely need to check out TkMaxx more often though – managed to find this revolution gift set!!! It was so cheap omg.

My cat also loved it ♡(。- ω -)

How to do Gyaru Makeup in Hot/Humid Weather

The first time I wore gyaru makeup in the summer was when we went on holiday to Spain back in 2011. We were shopping in a small market when my sister pointed out that my lashes were falling halfway down my face. I quickly hurried away and fixed it, but my makeup was constantly melting right off for the whole day (and the days after that)! Luckily that doesn’t happen nowadays, and I’ve got a few tips and tricks under my belt, so here’s how to do gyaru makeup (and gyaru in general!) in summer when it’s hot/humid.

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.

How to Do Gyaru Makeup for Westerners

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!

Trick or Treat! Halloween Goodies and Makeup Haul

Trick or Treat! Or, in my case, just the treat side of things. I couldn’t help myself searching for some Halloween goodies but I feel like the more I love Halloween, the less that shops stock of it. How typical is that? It’s mid-October but shops have reduced their Halloween accessories to but a single aisle and has been taken over by *whispers* glittery baubles and sparkly tinsel. That’s right, Christmas stuff. It’s probably a good thing because I’m desperately trying to save money right now, but I couldn’t help myself to a few bits and bobs as well as some makeup goodies.
