New Gyaru for Beginners

Sooo remember how I told you before about Taylor Indiana's series called Gyaru for Beginners? In this series she explains about the absolute basic things every new gal should know in a very nice and understandable way. It is really helpful, as she is planning on touching on practically things from contouring to how to make the perfect coord. Before she has already posted about choosing the right kind of circle lensesChoosing and applying lashes and now she is writing a subseries about eyemake, as it is the most complex part of a gal's make.

After having waited a long time it has finally really started and she posted about the tools you need (also for smaller budgets ^^) and eyeshapes, the article you can find here. It is very interesting in  my opinion. I never knew there were so many different eyeshapes O.o


I think I have the 'almond eyes', how about you guys? The whole make changes with your eyeshape, so next she will be explaining how to do the basic eyemake shapes. I can't wait!

   

Much Love!

Gyaru Closet

I have been super busy these last weeks, sorry!! My internship now started for real, bf came back from his vacation, all the uni stuff has started as well and I joined a new fraternity .. I love this kind of busy!

I have not really had time for anything gal related though, which is too bad T^T. Buuut I thought of something you might find interesting: my Gyaru wardrobe! As I have been getting more and more into gal recently, I have been building me a gal wardrobe for about 5 months now I guess? Anyway, I am really proud and happy about the pieces I collected to far.

Take a look <3:

(Left to right: DreamV, H&M)

(Left to right: Glavil, H&M, Primark)

(Left to right: DIA, Primark, H&M)

(All Glavil, these are my favorites <3 )


(DIA moonbelt, I love this so much! My bf is still going to make it just a bit wider for me, since it turned out to be a bit small O.o)

As you can see, it is not that much -.- what can I, say students are poor.. 

I do feel really bad for having neglected my blog this much lately. I promise improvement ! Expect a new post within this week .

Much Love!

EOS Ice Violet circle lens review

As promised I will review the lenses I wore in my last post: the EOS Ice Violet. Ordering lenses is always a bit tricky if you have light eyes like me, so I searched a lot for reviews of these lenses before ordering them, but couldn't find any for light eyes. I hope this review will be helpful for others like me in the future ^^

Anyways, so I ordered them again at Pinky Paradise. I love this shop, they have so many different lenses! Plus a lot of other great stuff like nose make-up and such. They arrived at my home with the cutest matching elephant lens boxes <3


Here is some information about the lenses:
Diameter: 14.8 mm
Water Content: 38%
Base Curve: 8.8 mm
Type: 1 Year disposal

I couldn't wait to try them on! I have wanted to try purple lenses for some time now and I just loved the design of these ones. So here's a pic of me wearing them:


I think it's a shame you don't notice them that much T^T especially compared to on dark eyes:


Also they seem to have a much bigger center than in the picture of the site.. weird! So now on to the reviewing!

Color: 3/5
I love this color! It's a really pretty purple that seems really sweet and soft, while still being interesting and edgy enough for my more rock looks. It's just too bad they are not that noticable on light eyes T^T

Design: 4/5
I really like the design of the lenses, but I think I prefer lenses with a dark outer ring above these without a real noticable ring. It just looks less gal to me.

Enlargement: 5/5
These lenses will give you huge dolly eyes, even without the black outer ring.
Comfort: 5/5
I have worn these lenses for about 12 hours and haven't felt any discomfort or even dry eyes. Maybe I am a little less sensitive to these problems though, as I wear lenses everyday. Still they were really comfortable! (I even forgot to take them out, when I took of my make for meeting friends later that day:$ they liked them though)

Pro's:
+ Unique color
+ Great enlargement
+ Very Comfortable
+ Also available in grey, blue, green, brown and pink!
+ Available with prescription up to -10
+ You can even wear them without make, it looks pretty natural

Con's:
- Not very visible on light eyes

You can buy the lenses here for only $17.40

I hope this review was helpful!

Much love!

New hairstyle ~

Hi dear readers! How are you all doing today? ^^
I am really great as I finally went to the hairdresser's \(^o^)/ In the post in which I told I was finally back from my holidays, I told you to really not pay attention to my hair, as it was a hot mess... So literally the next day I had my appointment at Kinki kappers. I was really nervous, since I did not exactly know what I wanted and had only brought some inspirational pics for them to work with:










As you can see I wanted something really different, more bold and edgy and suiting for the look I want for myself! Unfortunately I had to tell them I could not die my hair in really cool colours, as I will be starting my internship next week and they don't tolerate very out of the box looks T^T So I wanted to stick with browns and blonds and make it look a bit more 'natural'...

Unfortunately they misunderstood, so when I gave them these pictures and instructions, they understood I really wanted something natural. They did give me side bangs, which I have wanted for a Long time now, but they just died my hair in two tones of brown whcih are so close together you can't even tell the difference if you know // I was really disappointed by that! But well I am just going to let my hair rest for a little now and than try again ^o^ !

Here's the result for now:


Hihi only after the foto I realised my nails kind of match the phone cover XD (And no make I know :$) I think it's still kinda cute, how do you like it? I'll be trying to style it with the length like this first and mabe later try extensions if it doesn't work.


Much Love!

Review: 8th sin creations

Just before I left for my holidays, I got a package from this sweet little store in te UK called 8th sin creations, this is their website. I got this creepy cute lucky pack, so I could make them  review ^^

 


There were so many cool things in it!All jewelry is made of plastic figures attached to chains. The owner of the shop thinks up and creates evereything by herself (or so I thought). The skeleton necklace in the picture above is my favorite item! ^^ I call him Mr. Bones XD




Don't you just love these cute ear rings? I used them for the last football match The Netherlands played, since our colour is orange -.^


So on to the reviewing part:

Service : 5/5

I got the lucky pack while talking the details over  in FB messages. They were very nice and professional. There was even room for chitchat ^^ They responded fast to questions and it felt very nice and personal! Plus on top of the great collection of items the store sells, they also have room for admissions, so you can design your own piece of jewelry togethernwith them ! I just love this!

Shipping : 5/5

The store ships free in UK and with normal posting rates to the rest of the world. They ship the same day you purchased or the next day if it's after post hours, so you get your items as fast as possible. All Items in the lucky pack were packaged seperately with a business card, which looked really cute but did use so much more packaging! However seen as the luckypack was not what they normally do, 'll overlook it ;)

Quality/cost: 5/5

All te jewelry in of pretty good quality and very low in price AND handmade. I just love that, as it makes all pieces so much more unique than the H&M stuff.

I would definitely buy some of this shop again and can't wait to make coords ! The shop sells so completely different things, anybody should find something they like.


Much Love!

New blog lay-out

I'm back ! \(^o^)/ And going to the hairdressers tomorrow, finally, so don't mind the messy hair please :P


Actually I have been back for almost a week now, but I was kinda busy.. And I wanted to first make the new blog lay-out and than start posting again.
The old lay-out really sucked in my opinion and was done really fast, so it desperately needed an update. This is still a work in progress, but up until now I am happy with the results ^^

Get ready for some new posts , because I have tons of new inspiration now!

Much Love!
