♡MOC Day5: ←Turn Back Time!←♡

Hello Angels~
I feel like it's been so long since I posted, even though it was just last week
anyway I'm back with the next challenge entry!
Turn Back Time
when I first saw the title for this makeup challenge I immediately thought about "old school" gyaru looks! So I delved into all the magazine scans and tumblr tags that I could find for inspiration.
My personal favorite looks are from (of course) Egg magazine!
Idk what it is about those older issues, but I enjoy looking at them; especially the "Street Groove" section with the street snaps of coordinates.
For hairstyle I was inspired by this:

For makeup I took inspiration from these pictures:
 Waah Egg gals were so fun lol When it came to makeup brows were thin & arched, false lashes were mostly natural style, and lips were glossy & nude. I'll admit it's not a good look for me makeup-wise, but I wanted to give it a try!

To me, gyaru makeup was all in the eyeliner back then.  I feel like most of the gal's falsies looked the same, light and kind of natural (both upper and lower lashes). I wanted to key in that "white around the eyes" look but the white eyeshadows I currently own aren't as pigmented as they are chalky and powdery lol But I tried ~ If anything I kinda do like the silver eyeliner I used beneath the eyeliner wing and in the inner corner.  Also I tried to be as light as I could about my eyebrows but mine are thicker than what most gals sported in the late 90's and early 2000's.

Now my favorite part (even though this is a makeup challenge), the outfits!
I still can't believe it, but I came across a few downloads for Egg and Ageha issues from 2008 and 2009! Usually the links for such downloads have been removed are broken.

Trends I noticed:
fedoras, beanie, berets
graphic t-shirts / tops
patterned tights / stockings
denim skirts
accessorizing skirts with belts
uggs and boots

I decided to do two different coordinates to incorporate the different trends
headband - H&M
jacket - offbrand
top - Hollister
skirt - Hollister
boots - Rue21
belt - offbrand (and belongs to my mom lol)
beanie - Hottopic
coat - Baby Phat
top - Rue21
overalls - Rainbow shops
socks - Rue21 ( i think. . .)
shoes - Rue21
I like this coord the most!!!
Here have 2 selfies~ lol
I know I always say this but, I enjoyed doing this. But I guess that's because I'm always happy when doing my makeup! Makeup brings me so much happiness ~
(⑅ ॣ•͈3•͈ ॣ)
See you next post!
~ Love you!! x Amiman ~


  1. Everything about this post is LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!! I agree with you, old style gal was so amazing! And it's actually what makes me feel happiest and what I aim to do when I dress up. I've actually been on hunts for everything from the "golden era" and become the gal I want to be :3
    Amazing job with everything! You're so adorable <3

    1. Awwww so much love!!!~~ L(^o^ve) I appreciate it so very much! And I hope you reach that goal! I believe in you~ Would you do old school gyaru all the time? That would be interesting, I love seeing people that look like they came out of a different time period ^^ lol I can't wait to see your version of this post!

    2. Thank you!!!!! I would definitely try! I've been doing my best trying to find all the old gal mags for inspo. But it's so hard to find EGG without having to pay so much for shipping @_@ And the one site that has a ton of scans doesn't allow me to log in to download Dx I tried the only pw I knew but it won't accept it :(
      I can't wait to do this!
