Trumpets pls, FDC not so proudly presents..Ganguro Ash

YES, this is IT. Here it is, amidst the imaginary trumpets blaring, the FOTD that scared and will scare countless of readers into submission. After a good one week, all required materials ie.: Missing foundation colour was found and the look quickly put together. At a span of merely 1 hour and endless hair loss, swearing and cursings, Fleur De Cendre is not so proud to show you the ugly side of Ashley, the Ganguro wannabe.


A teaser :P
See the contrast of the white lips and tan skin. This was how tan I became

First up, if you're thinking, "Huh? Why is the white lips the first picture?" Patience, can't scare the readers too fast you see. Also because of the lousy lighting and camera, the rest of the pictures wasn't really able to capture how tan I was. Only this picture was able to thanks to the white lips. Also I never ended up with white lips throughout the FOTD because my eye shadow wasn't white enough and the lips were too white compared to it. I ended up mixing it to a super light pink. Gomen!


My inspirational pictures

A recap on those who might have missed out my earlier post on the look I'm trying to achieve; I wanted a cross between a ganguro and a banba. Banba have the so called natural hair minus the too obvious nose streak and white block make up. So this look will still be suble compared to the real lot.

On wards hooooo, mates! Items used;


Muh loot, using cheap stuffs as usual :P

Face
Red Earth Secret Potion
Kate liquid foundation in 'D' colour
DFCZ Stylish Silky Milk foundation
Elianto baked powder in 04

Eyes
NYX Jumb pencil in Milk
Silky Girl Yin & Yang
Givency Eyeliner
MAC paint pot in Blackground
Daiso Eyelash Glue
'Unnamed' eye lashes

Cheeks
In2it long wearing blush in Kiss
Testimo eyeshadow in PK-41
The Body Shop Shimmer Wave in Peach (not in picture)

Lips
NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk
NYX round lipstick in Naricuss




I used a combination of the above liquid foundation + highlighter on the entire skin. The cheap DFCZ foundation was too red and wasn't anywhere near natural looking so I had to mix it with Kate liquid foundation that I borrowed from Pinky Doodle Doo. Her's only one shade darker than my normal but it worked to tone down the redness of the cheaper foundation. Secret Potion was mixed into the whole lot because I didn't wanted the matte look. I wanted the dewy look and I know Secret Potion will work well as the shimmer is subtle.


Left to right: What I started off with, lookie me pimples :D;
After applying Kate liquid foundation first, a shade darker already :P



Left to right: I added on the mixture from above to my face, check out the streaks; another shade tanner



Left to right: The difference. I never put any on the neck to show the readers the difference between the face and neck so you'll know how many shades darker I've gone from usual; After powdering the entire face and adding on the NYX jumbo pencil in Milk

When DFCZ mentioned 'Oil Effect' they weren't kidding. My face ended up being very oily looking. Elianto baked powder could hardly absorb the oiliness. Not to mention, the powder and foundation was a major pain in the behind to blend in. Everything was kind of patchy.


Left to right: Smudge Milk on the entire lid, note that I forgot to add primer in my haste; Gently pat SilkyGirl Yin on top of Milk. Line the bottom of your eyes with Milk as well the using MAC Blackground, line your eyes


Left to right: Smudge Milk on the bottom and use an eyeliner to line bottom lash line. I used Givency eyeliner which was too creamy and thus all the smudges; SMUDGED! Had to wipe off and add more Milk and redraw the eyeliner


Left to right: Thicken the eyeliner on the top and pat on Silkygirl Yang, you can choose to soften the black by blending upwards or leave it as it is; Apply falsies, choose the super dramatic ones. I don't have anything too dramatic so I had to settle for this one


Left to right: Add some flowers to your hair and hope that you even look sane;
smudges on the top! How on earth does those ganguro girls not get any smudges everywhere with this look? How?




The pictures can't even capture how tan I was. In real life, I really ended up looking like a Red Indian wannabe, the type that even my mother would have problem recognizing me, yet it appears so subtle in the pictures. I hate the camera...


Left to right: Fooling around with some props. When bored, wear a hat or wrap yourself with your blanket. Heeee~
See the difference between the arms and face?




Left to right: ^%$#@! Gonna get Kern to edit the damn smudges out.

Last two shots on the camera. I found that by applying subtle shimmer to your face, it really does make it look flawless both on camera and in real life. So if you don't have a good face highlighter, do get one, you'll be amazed.

Finally, all done. Keep in mind that since I do still have foundation left, I might just re-do all this again when I'm free. I realized the mistakes on what should have been done and what could have been toned down. I would really to hear your opinion on this take.

Also before anyone starts accusing me of trying to act cute and all, do know that all this was initially done for a good laugh. I'm not trying to rock this look as I'm not even the Ganguro type to begin with. I'm trying to recreate this look to see how I would look all unlike me and tanned.

P.s: If you saw some of the picures, would you have thought it was me?
