If you don't know what a gyaru is, it's a Japanese term for young girls in their teens and twenties who are very fashion-conscious with a stereotype of having a child-like appearance. You will most often see examples of "gyaru" girls in Japanese fashion magazines like Vivi (my favorite), Popteen, and S Kawaii. Basically the look centers on having HUGE eyes and a very innocent dolly look.

The lash placement accentuates the dolly eyes. My eyes are so huge I wish I would've worn some 14.5mm circle lenses instead! The lashes were being a bit droopier than I would've liked but these Dolly Wink lashes are HUGE and fell right down. I don't recommend them for most days unless you enjoy looking really fake.
Here's my princess pouf hair with Eki's adorable hair bow. ^_^ Companion hair tutorial will be uploaded soon.
Here are a couple shots hubby took, making me look TINY! Hehe...
And just for kicks, here's a selca shot I took in the car on the way to a friend's house. Somehow, the car lighting just looks cuter.
To be honest, this wasn't actually my favorite tutorial I've done on myself. I just think I look better with smaller eyes. Is that silly of me? I've never really loved the look of huge creases on me. BUT it was fun to do, and the transformation is pretty radical! I love makeup for its ability to do that sort of thing. ^_^
I hope you all enjoyed my gyaru tutorial! I do want to disclaim that I don't profess to be a gyaru (duh) so take this tutorial with a grain of salt and have a sense of humor when you apply your makeup, especially during Halloween!
