Sweet Popteen Inspired Makeup

This time around, this look is not inspired by a particular model but just the overall sweet and innocent vibe models like Kummiki, Okarie and Rui Kotobuki are commonly seen sporting. So I wanted to put together a look that would be at home among the lovely ladies that model for Popteen.
This is a step up from the "natural" gyaru makeup I did last time. Whereas that was the bare minimum (more akin to what you'd find in something like Vivi magazine) this is the amp'd up version of a sweet look.
The lashes are more pronounced and elaborate, the cheeks and lips are brighter and the contouring, while still light, is heavier than before and more precise. As always work on that deer in the headlights expression XD
Popteen beauties Kumikki,Okarie, Rui Kotobuki and Natsuko Matsumoto.

Sorry I totally failed at showing the eyeliner step but I do normally hold the skin by the eye taut to apply the liner. But since I always do my left eye for the video (it seems to get better light) and I am left handed doing this always seems to get in the way. So for the sake of the video I never pull the skin straight and I must've just forgotten and done it anyway >.< .

  1. You look so adorable! *_*
    What lenses are you wearing? o:
    Also do you watch Wayne Goss Videos? :D
    Your Make Up technics remind me so of him

    1. These are Barbie King Size Brown lenses.
      I've actually seen a few makeup artists on youtube use this contour/highlight technique before and thought it would work really well with gyaru makeup. I do love Wayne Goss' videos though and have seen his contouring videos :)

  2. that look is so cute!! really suits you♥

    &thanks for the video!:3

  3. I love popteen. Everything is so magical in it!

    1. It's not my favorite magazine but it is great for inspiration on sweeter looks, I think :)

  4. Wow... you are so good with Makeup! You're definitely my inspiration when it comes to Gyaru makeup cause you're so good at it!!!

    1. Thank you! That means a lot and gives me motivation to, hopefully, become better.
