My makeup! picture heavy! :: Wednesday, November 16, 2011


I've had quite a few people message me about my makeup lately (both positively and negatively) and I wanted to show everyone what I do with my makeup! It's really not that exciting, but I wanted to share. xD

I like the more natural style of gyaru makeup/gyaru inspired makeup, so that is how I like to do my makeup!

Let's get started LOTS OF MY NEKKID FACE! WATCH OUT!!!
Click for bigger pictures (duh xP)





Yup... my face right out of the shower! Getting ready for my first layer. As you can see, my skin isn't horrible all on it's own. Just a little blotchy. :)

First 2! Olay Regenerist: Regenerating Serum and Biore: Nourish moisture lotion.
You'll see a theme with my makeup! A good moisturizer is the best thing to start your makeup off with.

Pore Putty clear. Nice base. As you can see, my pores are less noticeable.

Maybelline: Instant Age rewind concealer. Sorta gets rid of my dark circles.

Revlon Age Defying DNA foundation.

ANND~ Pore Putty face powder brings everything together.


Next, I always dry my hair after putting all my foundation on, otherwise, my bangs will stand straight up no matter what I do to them after.

Loreal Hip Studio Secrets Crystal eyeshadow. This adds just a little shimmer at the inner corners and above the lids.


Homei Diamond Dazzling Eyeshadow. I use 1 all over my eye and around the outer corners and under my bottom lashes. 2 I use right above my upper lashes.

Maybelline Eyestudio Charcoal Carbon pot of eyeliner. I don't use a TON of this, but I line my upper lids and then wing it a bit at the edges.

Now, it's time for curling the lashes. I find it's easier to blend the falsies with my natural lashes when they're curled. :)

CoverGirl exact eyelights for brown eyes mascara. I don't find what mascara you use to be extremely important, but I like this mascara for when I'm not going to wear my falsies.

CIRCLE LENSES! Candy Brown. and Dolly Wink No. 1 Dolly Sweet lashes! It really depends on the day when my lenses get put in. Usually it's very first, but when I'm unsure which I feel like wearing, I'll wait until right before I out my lashes on to put them in.

And, finally Coffret D'or blend color blush PK-24, a little bit of contouring on my nose, and chapstick today (sometimes I use gloss, but when it's windy like today, I CAN'T STAND my hair blowing and sticking to my lips. UGH!!).

After makeup I put on my clothes and do my hair! Nothing to it. This whole process takes me about 45 minutes or so if I'm going really slow, and 15 minutes if I'm in a rush.
See, yeah, nothing special. But, I like it a lot! It's not perfect (brows and mouth especially xD) but nothing is :)

EDIT: ps. If you think I should do something with my brows (which I am perfectly aware of :)) say something other than "I think you should shape your brows" (not to single out anyone) The idea isn't new to me, I just haven't found how *I* want to do them.



Start to finish!


I love this picture... I look like I have plans to go DESTROY something. MUWAHAHA!

What I wore today:



My room is an EMBARRASSING MESS! So, crappy photoshop.

And candid at work





I have a lot of other entries planned including a couple inspo posts, so stay tuned!


ps. I've edited this post like 10 times, so sorry if it shows up 10 times in your feed!!

I love the light color! It is definitely my go to for light shadow. The brown is a little shiny for me, though. :)

thanks for the make-up process! <3 ^_^
I dont really give advice to people (cause i think i suck lol ><), butI think you could really benefit from shaping your eyebrows!!I know I did! and your eyebrows seem really easy to shape!

Thank you for your comment, Emily!
Yes, as I mentioned in the post, my eyebrows are far from perfect.
I've been told too many conflicting things to do with them, I figure since they don't look awful, until I find the way *I* like to do them, I'm going to leave them alone. If not having shaped eyebrows makes me not gal, then that's fine with me. :)
Sorry to sound a bit bitchy.
If you have something other than "shape them" to tell me, like a good color or brand to try, or a model you think has eyebrows that would suit me, I'm willing to try.

Edit: lol, I re-read this and was like
WOAH! way to jump down someone's throat! heh, I really do appreciate
your comment though! It reminds me to do something with them instead of
being lazy! <3

I love your outfit in the last picture! You look really cute

I dont think it makes you "not gal" at all c:
I was just saying because you don't have like big bushy eyebrows that would be hard to shape, y'know (:

I just use some eyebrow pencil thing I got in Japan
like this : http://www.sasa.com/SasaWeb/eng/product/viewProductDetail.jspa?itemno=103733901004

but I think a regular brown or light brown color would look good on you! ^ ^

I normally find a picture of a models eyebrows I like and then just try to copy the shape for example: http://img839.imageshack.us/img839/139/tumblrlupq1rmvjr1qjqqib.jpg ♥

but of course, you know yourself best! so whatever works for you!

just leaving some friendly suggestions! (:

haha yeah! Thank you! I have 4 different eyebrow pencils, but I still haven't figured it out for myself. But, I constantly have people telling me to work on them lol! So, it gets old (but you have no way of knowing that so ignore my snarls lol)

What I need to do is figure out a way to do them without plucking them more xD I have days where I can't wear any makeup at all, so I don't want to have NO eyebrows at all on those days! LOL!

Thank you for the pictures and recommendation! <3

My eyes are super big already w/o makeup, it's funny that the makeup makes them look smaller in some ways xD

oh oh I also sometimes use that Revlon foundation, it covers up well! It makes me look lighter too haha probably because I got the wrong shade~ Love your photos btw ^^ I really enjoy your posts

I like that foundation, but I'm probably going back to the other Revlon foundation I used to wear.
The flash made it look lighter than it actually is on me. The color is actually right on, just my face is always redder than the rest of my body!!
Thanks!
