Look of the day: Gyaru Makeup

Gyaru makeup by Zelanthropy
Hi loves! Who's a fan of Japanese fashion here?? Well if you are, you must be familiar with the Gyaru trend. Its a very popular trend here in Asia and can be spotted in magazines, Japanese beauty products as well as commercials and movies. I decided to do this look when I got myself a beautiful set of 3S lashes from Sample Room.

According to Tsubasa Masuwaka (a gyaru model and owner of cosmetic brand Dolly Wink), gyaru is a Japanese girl who really pays attention to how she looks – from her makeup to what she’s wearing. She’s bold, daring, and not afraid of being who she is and what she loves.

Now to achieve this look, I have a few points I need to accomplish. Here's my checklist when it comes to creating the Gyaru makeup look:
1.) Well defined eyes
2.) Bright, doll like complexion
3.) Natural looking flush of color on the cheeks and lips

Okay now on to the meat of this entry. I started doing my makeup by first applying a good base on my face. I spot concealed after because this will make the look more natural and breathable. Then I went ahead and contoured slightly the crease of my eyes and sides of my nose. 

I started my eye makeup by lining my eyes giving importance to making it look bigger and having a nice cat eye flick. Aside from lining the eyes, a good trick to do to create defined eyes is to use false eye lashes. Make sure to curl your lashes and apply mascara prior to falsies application.

False eyelashes have been a huge hit in Asia especially in Japan, Taiwan and Korea but sadly they don't sell like pancakes here in the Philippines. Now I wonder why. These babies are like magic. It can instantly define and make the eyes look bigger  with out the use of an eyeliner. 

Then I'd proceed to filling in my brows. It's important to get this step done because this will frame the eyes. After I'd just put on my favorite blusher and skip on the contour. Concentrate the blusher on the apples of your cheek. Then I highlighted the high points of my face and the inner corners of my eyes. 

Don't forget to seal your makeup with a finishing powder!

I applied a layer of concealer on my lips to act as base and applied lip color only to the center part of my lips. I just dabbed and blended the lip color to create a gradation effect. Then I topped it off with lip gloss.

Would you believe that I created this look with only eye liners and a beautiful set of falsies? Achieve diba. I can always get away with perfectly lined eyes and full looking lashes. Too bad I exceeded the amount of 500 pesos or else I would have passed the 500 peso makeup challenge.
