Video Tutorial - Japanese Gyaru Makeup!


Here is my latest makeup video tutorial, this time of the ever-popular Japanese Gyaru look! The young ladies that follow this popular fashion trend are well known for their amazing makeup, with carefully applied eyeliner, gorgeous false lashes and awe-inspiring contouring skills. I am so amazed by how much time and effort these girls spend to look so gorgeous every day!

I used mostly browns and beige colors for this look because it is more lashes-focused. The eyeshadow is used to make your eyes look deeper, and I think too much color would overwhelm the face.

Anyway on with the video!


I had to extensively edit my video this time to get it under 10 minutes while being understandable, as there was over 10 gigs of video for me to go through! The music is from a J-Trance album, which is a popular music style among Gyarus.

Here's a closeup of my face showing the whole makeup without the wig:

And here is a GIF showing the progress of each step. Pay attention to how my lashes seems to "grow" from my eyes! XD

Finally, here is a pic of the false eyelashes I used, they are cut-and-pasted together from 5 pairs (2 top, 3 bottom)!

My review for the circle lenses I wore in this look can be found here: http://makeup-piggy.blogspot.com/2010/02/circle-lens-review-eos-g202-or-candy.html

To end this post, have a few more camwhoring pics for good measure:
