I finally got to finish editing the video I wanted to put up a while ago. Even with a lame editor like WMM, editing is still a bit of work. Well too much work for someone who was practically done the first time when the editing program decided to crash before I could save everything and has no more patience for editing. It took me a while to get to the point where I wouldn't be severely annoyed trying to put together the video again, but I digress.

It may not look like a lot when you see some of the girls that do their makeup like this but that's part of the artifice of gyaru and why I chose to put the word natural in quotes because this is still quite a bit of makeup by most people's standards and the steps are really still the same...and the number of products used is essentially the same too. The only difference is that they are applied to a lesser extent. So without further ado, here is the video.
I think it's also worth noting that this seems pretty open to interpretation, so I'd love to know what you guys think too. What do you consider make up requirements of gal to be? Bottom lashes? Circle lenses? Contouring? And on the opposite end of that, what do you think you could do without and still look gal?
