I Wish I Was Better At… Gyaru Hair!
I’ve been into gyaru for quite a while now but there was always something lacking in my appearance – the gyaru hair. Work and uni took quite a lot of my spare time so I haven’t been able to experiment that much, but with uni over I can hopefully try some new styles out! This idea was enforced when my girl Chewiee did my hair for Hyper Japan (see pics here) and I really want to focus more on my hair and get the basics down!
To help myself – and hopefully you – out I’ve compiled a collection of both video tutorials and picture tutorials. Let’s work on this together!
Gyaru Nail Art Inspiration for All Lengths!
Yep, this week I’m going to be talking about gyaru nails (well, gyaru nail art). I realised that I buy way too many clothes and don’t really think about the small things that really make the outfit pop, and one of them is (or is it ‘are’?) the nails! I only have a few sets and I really want to start making some for myself. So I had a browse on Tumblr/Pinterest and gathered a few of my favourites.
I know it’s going to take me a while to actually get good at doing nails but I might as well look for inspiration! I’m going to split it into two sections – Dramatic & Short – because I can’t really wear false nails at work. I’ve also included some neat tutorials too at the bottom!
Please note: I don’t own any of the following images. Read my full disclaimer here.
Easy Gyaru Makeup & Hair Tutorials
There are times where I wish I could do gyaru at work. The thing is that prioritise sleep over slapping my face on with makeup, which makes those weekends for dolling up even more precious. However I do want to be an everyday gyaru wherever possible so I spent the last few weeks collecting lots of easy hair and makeup tutorials and then I thought… Why not share this collection with my readers?
Below you’ll find a whole set of hair and makeup tutorials that are great for the everyday gyaru/gal! I hope you find them useful!
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!
