Although I might get a lot of flack for this, I just wanted to put this "reply" as a post by itself. It's only being done this way because of one of my personal blogging rules:
If your response is more than 100 words, its a post not a reply.
You see, I wanted the lashes to lay flat. But of course, with new diamond lashes, (i made a large order from d~tan) they don't want to bend for you. So instead of being obedient, my lashes decided to arch up on my eyelid. Not what I wanted, but dear GOD, I was already an hour late! I had only enough time to darken the eyelid area and set it with eye shadow. as you can see, it didn't work for me. the curve of the lashes aren't glue to the eyelid, just the ends.
I ran what errands I needed, not caring about my messed up eyemake. When I came home, I sat down at my laptop to catch up on the community and my blog. Then, I don't know what came over me, but I just wanted to say something on camera. And instead of taking an hour to clean off and repaint my face, I just went with the flow of things. I feel better for it.
Since I already knew what I needed to change, I wasn't fearful of the idea of a community backlash. Unfortunately, new & 3rd gen gyaru are afraid to show their mistakes. Simply because they followed a guide that told them not to. Did it make sense? Yes... and no.
|There are plenty of photos to prove my point but this one was too funny to pass up|
Yes, because you don't just throw something on your face and act like your even close to gyaru. No, because how would you know if you are doing it right? I had followed that guide (or that particular rule) faithfully. But now that I look back at that... I was wrong for doing so. I didn't fully "wake up" and realize what I needed to be doing until Gigi became my friend and nagged it into me. Most of us can't use the Japanese guides 100%, and you may be at a point where you can't tell if you're doing something wrong.
I didn't even understand this until I came across one particular Gyaru. She's fairly new, but posts tons of pictures of herself. Does her makeup look bad? Here and there. Does she know this? Yes. Is it bothering her? Nope. I was shocked at the massive amounts of confidence that's usually beaten out of aspiring Gyaru like her. She's so friendly. And every time I've pointed something out, she's been very understanding and replies in a grateful manner. Gigi, you know who I'm talking about. So... why are we following that rule again?
meh, I don't know. Sometimes I think even my guides are useless. But I just improve upon them. It the common sense thing to do when you yourself have learned something new. It shows your readers humility and growth. Maybe I should take a bite of humble pie, but I won't be last. Who's next?
Now then, I've expressed my opinion. What's yours?
