The GYARU Experiment

Today I was in the mood to experiment. I realized that I have dolly contacts, dyed hair, falsies, and cute outfits. So, why not try to be a gyaru for today?
Gyaru refers to Japanese fashion. They're like real-life dolls. I'm a fan of Tsubasa Masuwaka who is huge in the Japanese fashion industry. 

I'm pretty sure if you dress up gyaru style here in the Philippines, people will notice you. So yeah, today I was an object who was definitely the center of attention. 
People noticed me and I don't really care what they think or say because all in my head was experimenting, and I don't like to be the center of attention anyway :p
and this is the look...

I did curl my hair and tried a cute hairstyle >.<

My eye make up :)

As you noticed, gyaru look should be flawless, that's why I used a lot of products on my skin just to cover blemishes and scars on my face. I also used my Victoria Secret Blushing Cream Duo as highlight for the cheeks and a light blushing powder. 
The eyes should be very noticeable. This can be attained by using dolly eye contacts and white eyeliner to make your eyes appear bigger and doll-like. There's no need to use dark eye shadows. As much as possible use light and shimmery eye shadows. And don't forget to put on lashes :p
And for the lips, apply concealer first before putting on a lip color. Use a light pink color for the lips and top it off with a lip gloss.

kawaii ne? (^.^)v

...and that's all for this look!
I could really LOL for this photo above. Just tryin' to be cute and all? HAHA!
So what do you think? Did I pass on my experiment? 
Anyways, I do hope you'd try this gyaru look. It never hurts to try new things you know, you might discover a new side of you ;)
