I saw XiaXue’s entry promoting Shibuya girl’s Tsubasa x Dolly Wink lookalike competition and decided to give it a shot! I’ve always been a fan of the gyaru style but haven’t really ever gone and done the top and bottom lash look, and I regret not ever doing it before – it makes your eyes look HUGE!!!
ATTENTION!!: Please use this link to vote for my entry please :DD!!! by November 30th!! THANKS :DDD
Dolly Wink is a collection of lashes by Koji cosmetics designed and created by Tsubasa Masuwaka – a huge idol in the gyaru scene. They are supposedly handmade with precision and also manually thinned at the end of the lashes for a fine tip – this is probably why they are so pricey. They are supposed to last one month of regular wear for each pair so I guess the $25 I spent on them were worth it? You can buy them cheaper online from a range of $13.50 -$18 dollars depending on where you purchase them from.
Now time to copy the look on the packet for the competition. It actually took forever (about 2 hours) to do this look – man being a gyaru girl takes effort 🙂 I respect them if they are bothered to do this look everyday! I will reveal the look at the very bottom 😉 But time for the tutorial :D!!
Prep: Circle lenses and moisturise
Put on your circle lenses – I used Dueba Mimi Bambi eyes in green – which is also designed by Tsubasa :D!!
Step 1: Put your favourite foundation and concealor and base.
I used Super BB cream by Skin79 and Make up forever’s full cover concealor.
Step 2: Apply eyeshadow
The eyeshadow she wore was very natural with in a satin peach/beige brown colour with it being more peachy colour in the crease. I used Mac in Cosmic and Firespot these were limited edition and in the texture Veluxe Pearl which matched the satiness of her shadow. I put Cosmic (beige brown) all over the lid and Firespot only on the crease. I extended it quite high because I will make a fake crease later to match her high crease. You can highlight the brow bone with a lighter colour if you wish.
Step 3: Eyeliner
Her liner is very thick in her look, almost the thickness of a natural crease – and if you look closely it looks like she did extend the eyeliner to her natural crease and created a fake crease that was much higher after she put on the fake lashes. This is what I did. If you don’t make it thick enough at this stage you can always go back and add to it after you apply your lashes.
You can see how thick the eyeliner I drew was, this was before I filled it in solid – you can float the line about 3mm over your eye line and then join if from the corner of your eye to the end of the line in a triangular shape.
This is what it looks like filled out – I later made it much thicker once I put the lashes on pretty much to my natural crease.
Step 3 – Curl your lashes and put mascara on
At this point you can lightly curl your lashes and put on a small coat of mascara (you really can’t tell once the lashes are on anyways, just curl them so they don’t point down and ruin the curly eyelash effect. Also for your bottom lashes you want it just to clump lightly so point your mascara wand down and put on your mascara on your bottom lashes in a vertical motion.
Step 4 – Put on lashes
Now it’s time to put on the lashes. The Dolly Wink lashes were actually a breeze to put on and the glue was pretty nice. The lash band was very thin and it was clear so it stuck on really easily. The bottom lashes are Dolly Wink No. 7 lashes which I didn’t get a chance to buy so I adapted another pair of lashes by cutting them into shape. Review verdict: I will buy these again and one of the best lashes I’ve used! Very long though, opens your eye up – you’ll have to wear it with circle lens for it to look good I think – might be too dramatic otherwise.
Step 5 – Lips
With the lips, they are extremely pale pink and if you have pigmented lips like me, you’ll need to either use foundation on your lips or a lip concealor. I used one by CanMake. For this to look good you will need to make sure your lips are very well moisturised beforehand and to wipe off all excess moisturiser before you put the concealor on. Otherwise the concealor will slide off easily and streak and it wont be even (I made this mistake already so you don’t have to)
. You then put on a pink gloss, I used a diorshow gloss an a clear gloss if you want a glassy effect.
Step 6: Cheeks
The cheeks are a really bright girly pink applied in a triangular shape from the side of the cheeks. I used Jill Stuart’s Cheek pallet – but I only used the bright pink. P.S. This pallet is so pretty and cute and comes with a brush keyring OMG!!! LOVEE!!
Step 7: Create a new crease
The tricky part of this look is creating the second crease. In Tsubasa’s look her crease is incredibly high, you can try and make it as high as possible but you will be limited by the placement of your brow bone. You can create the crease on the part of your eye that is soft and you can press in. I created mine using this really cool product by MEZAIK. It’s double eyelid fibre and it pretty much comes in a little stick and you stretch it this thin sticky dental floss type string comes out and you stick it in the crease line you want to create.
Step 8 – Put on a wig :)!!
Thank you Miss Senna for letting me borrow her wig! I thought it was perfect for this look. And dadada….
