Just as promised, here is the 411 on Himegyaru (姫ギャル), a part of the Gyaru subculture that originated in Japan.

Hime basically means “princess” in Japanese and their biggest difference between Himegyarus and other Gyarus is their
princessy manner, which is manifested through their clothes, hair, jewelry, accessories etc.

 ( Hikari Shina from POP TEEN JAPAN)
Like most Gyarus, Himegyarus have super big, curly hair that range from light blonde to light brown. To get that beehive look, tease your hair with a rat tail comb, mist it with hair spray and pin it up with bobby bins. Use an one inch barrel curling iron on the bottom for the curls.
As for the makeup, you will need:
* Flawless porcelain skin. You will hardly see a tan Himegyaru so ditch the self-tanner, stay away from the sun and use sunscreen every day.
* Dramatic eyeliner. The eyes are always lined heavily in black on both top and bottom. MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack is perfect for this.
* Brown eyeshadow on the eyelid and under the eye to add in depth.
* Long, thick eyelashes. Use fake lashes if necessary.
* Baby pink/peach blush applied on the apples. How can you be a princess without those doll-looking cheeks?

* Pink glossy lips.


Clothes and Accessories
Lots and lots of pink, ribbons, pearls, laces, flowers, bling bling and heels are pretty much the basics. Nails must also be perfectly done.

Hime Gyaru Eye Make Up Tutorial

Because the original one is too much for everyday make up! ^^;

First, here are the tools used in this look ( I only do eye make up in this tut)

1. BOBBI BROWN Shimmer Brick Compact in BRONZE
2. BENEFIT 'Birthday Suit' Creaseless Cream
3. MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack + MAC Brush #266

Here is the inside palette =) (Its a bit too shimmery)

 First, I use Benefit Birthday Suit for my base color.

After that, I add Bobbi Brown shade number 1 , just half the size of the base.


After that I add shimmer highlights under my eyebrows and under my eyes with shade number 2. (See Picture)

Now for the darkest color! =) Almost done! Used Bobbi Brown shade number 3~
After that, use the fluidline and carefully line ur upper eyes. I lined it abit thick in here.

It makes your eyes heaps bigger !
And for single lidders, this make-up will make you look like you have double lids!

Finished look : ( my right eye undone lol )
