Inspired Look: LIGYARU's gyaru

It's been a while since the last FOTD or whatever. I was inspired by a western gyaru I saw on YouTube under LIGYARU (click on the name for her blog). Her looks are much more intense with over the top wigs and exaggerated make up and very unlike Ekimura's gyaru style which is very subtle and very pretty. It intrigues me because despite the two different looks, I love them both. I'm drawn to Lady Li's eyes and just had to try it out.



For this FOTD, I'm going to post the end pictures only. The process of doing the eyes were long and very very scary. Even for me.

Well Bunny, here ya go, full faced pictures as requested :D


How it started and how it all ended

I had to erase off my eyebrows and make them appear again but in a different colour. I did this by using my ELF eye primer to cover them up and then dabbed light brown eyeshadow on them. Seeing how it didn't work, I opted to use my lip liner. Since I only have ONE lip liner and it wasn't a suitable colour, I went back to dabbing eye shadow colour.



As much as I loved Lady Li's gyaru look, I just wasn't able to duplicate the exact look. Then again, I never did an exact look of anyone before. This is my interpretation and done mostly to see how it would look on me and at the same time still be me.



Took the pictures near my window, I'm a little glad that it wasn't too hot today and I didn't look completely washed out.


Ah well, was never gyaru looking in the first place. Too damned lazy anyway.

I love this look!!! It's really fun, and you look super gorgeous. your interpretation of the gyaru look is amazing. You can definitely pull this look off, especially with your super fair, crystal clear complexion.

the blue eyeshadow looks amazing on you *.* for some reason i think fake eyelashes only look good in asian eyes, i think i would look weird with them : < but they sure look great on you eyes :3

Hey Ash! :) How are you? I've been M.I.A on Blogger and missed reading your blog. Happy belated! Your earrings are gorgeous.

Seriously, you are one of only a few Asians I know that can pull off blond hair. Your alabaster skin just works so well with it. :)
