Tricia Gosingtian Tutorial Japanese Make-up

(Liz Lisa cardigan and dress, from Korea floral scarf, Forever 21 hairpin, Asian Vogue heels) Hype this look on Lookbook here.

Tricia Gosingtian Tutorial Japanese Make-up

This tutorial is inspired by the Japanese Mori Girl subculture. Mori in Japanese means forest, and this style is characterized by organic, flowy, layered fabric, as well as earthy tones reminiscent of the trees, flowers, fruits and animals that we see in fairytales. Most Mori girls usually don’t wear a lot of make-up, and everyone knows my style is more retro-girly gyaru, so this look is just my personal non-expert take on the trend. Hope this helps as much as my previous tutorial!

Step 1: Apply gold shimmer on your eyelids. You can use a shimmery brown eyeshadow too, if you want to add more depth to your eyes. I like to keep it simple by just using a barely-there color. Here I’m using the second darkest shade in Majolica Majorca’s GD886 Jeweling Eyes palette.

Step 2: Highlight your brow bone. I’m using the second lightest shadow in Majolica Majorca’s GD886 Jeweling Eyes palette. Sometimes I skip this step if I’m feeling lazy but this really helps in creating a more polished make-up look.

Step 3: Instead of using black eyeliner, try other colors like dark purple or olive green for a fun, refreshing change. You can wing your eyeliner in any direction you want but I like it a little bit downwards to create a more dolly effect. Green would be perfect for mori girls because it’s the most dominant color of the forest!

Step 4: This step is my most favorite part of this look. Since Mori girls wear a lot of light colors, a pop of wine red on your lower lashline wouldn’t hurt.

The inspiration for this? The apple in Snow White, of course!

Step 5: Majolica Majorca’s Lash Enamel Glamour Neo mascara is my new favorite! It’s not so intense compared to other mascaras but it does the whole lengthening trick perfectly.

Step 6: Apply mascara on your bottom lashes.

Step 7: Finish the whole look by applying false eyelashes. You don’t want the plastic-y ones gyarus use, so opt for natural looking ones like these for this particular mori girl look.

Products used: Majolica Majorca Lash Enamel Glamour Neo mascara, Puff de Cheek blush in Strawberry Macaroon, GD802 Perfect Automatic liquid eyeliner, RD505 Jeweling Eyes pencil eyeliner, GD886 Jeweling Eyes palette (I used the lower left gold shimmer for my eyelids and the upper right shimmer for highlighting my browbones), Rouge Majex BE210 lipgloss, MAC Playing Koi lipstick, Candy doll face powder from Crissey’s Online Shop, Luminous Change eyelashes from Japanese Candy

Tricia Gosingtian Freshlook Contact Lenses

It’s also my first time to show you photos of myself without enlarging contacts. These are Freshlook Colorblends Amethyst. They’re the same size as my normal eyes, and they look very natural under normal lighting conditions. If you’re iffy about contact lenses, Freshlook is a trusted BFAD/DOH-approved brand that you can easily purchase in optical stores around the Metro.

Also, I’m totes on a roll! Finally got to update my YouTube channel after a year. Here’s my Perfect Donut Hair Bun Tutorial that’s been widely requested since forever:

If you have any questions and tutorial requests, feel free to comment on this entry. I can’t really do complicated ones with lots of colors and blending, but I’m all for ulzzang and gyaru-inspired ones. If anyone gets inspired by this, take a picture and let me see! Hope this tutorial helps. :)
