00's Pop Princess 👑

Hello my Cuties!

     I'm happy to finally be writing this post!  A while back I shared with you some Summer looks I've been dying to do.  I go to recreate one recently.  \(≧▽≦)/

     I attempted the look of the lovely Gal in the middle~

scarf - amazon  top - blanco  jeans - fashion nova  shoes - h&m
belt - off brand  accessories - bunny crafty dream

     I felt like a 00's Pop Princess in this ensemble!  Back then, the head scarf was a hot, trendy item to amp up your look.  That in combination with the rhinestone studded belt and crochet top, made for the perfect Popstar!

     Veeery simple makeup (lol).  I did my "half make", in which it's mostly powder versus foundation, lots of blush, eyeshadow, and lashes.  I'm officially out of circle lenses (huhuu~).  But hey, it plays onto the whole old school Gyaru look so . . ヽ(´ー` )┌

     Ps. Did you peep the super cute accessories?  Maybe that brand name rings a bell, hm?  I had the joy of doing a custom order with our dear Kieli!   She made my dream earrings a reality!!!

     How cute are these?!  You should definitely check out her shop :  BunnyCraftyDream.  Not only are the earrings made by her, but the matching bracelets I'm wearing are as well!  

     Everything is lightweight and comfortable to wear.  That's a big thing for me.  You might have noticed you rarely see me wear lots of jewelry, because it usually weighs me down or feels like it's in the way.  I suddenly feel like it's Mardi Gras and I'm wearing 12 pounds of beads around my neck and wrists xD.  All silliness aside, I adore everything I got from Kieli's shop!  It went perfectly with my outfit.  I mean, what is a Popstar Princess without her stars?  (^.~)

Face Masks Just Might Be the Best Makeup Hack

Hellooo Cuties~ 

     This might be an odd blog post but, it's a topic that's been on my mind for a hot minute.  Bear with me here.  I'm going as far as to say that face masks are probably the best trick in the gyaru game.
ʕ •̀ o •́ ʔ

     All jokes aside though, I'm quite serious.  No time for fancy makeup?  Keep it simple with the eyemake and toss on a mask.  You can cut your routine time in half!  Want to focus more on your hair?  Go ahead!  

     Don't think Manba, Yamanba, or Banbas can work their magic even with a mask?  THINK AGAIN!  Most of the more dramatic styles rely more on eyes anyway.  And only the bridge of your nose stripe will matter so who cares if makeup never stays on the tip of your nose; no one will see it!  If you're like me and have an oily nose, the mask is a life saver!

     Gyaru makeup differs from normal makeup because of the eyes.  Eyes are a major part of gyaru makeup, so now it gets its time to shine!  Maybe this is the practice time you needed!  Sometimes following behind today's typical full face makeup routine can be both overwhelming and exhausting.  So lets focus on those eyes~  

(I tried to make her match my current hair lol)

     I've only worn a full face of makeup with a face mask once so far.  It didn't bother me at all.  I was worried about smudging or transferring onto the mask but that didn't happen either!  I'm planning to do "half make" moving forward (if masks are involved that is).

     For reference, my "Super Gals" look I did a few weeks ago, was "half make".  I only used foundation under my eyes and on my nose, as well as some concealer.  I generously applied blush and did my eyes normally.  Topped everything off with lashes, setting spray and I was ready to go!

     What do you think of this idea?  Have you ever considered simplifying your makeup in order to wear a face mask mess-free?  Tell me what you think!
