(& actually, it seems nowadays there is a LOT of contempt towards this look as a gyaru standard...sad.)
But doesn't mean you can't rock the old-school gyaru look anyway!
COCONA is a huge style idol for me. To get this look, these are my musts:
1. ash / light blonde hair
2. tan! (though this is natural for me)
3. light green / blue / grey circle lens
4. 3 pairs of lashes of considerable height
5. highlighter on eyes, cheeks, nose (contour)
6. nude / light pink lips
7. heavy darker shade blush
8. glitter eyeliner (usually gold)
Probably biased because I got into gyaru back in 2005 when the definition of gal was based on the ever-popular extremes of ganguro & yamanba. The magazines like EGG made it a rowdy, colourful, sexy, but WEARABLE street style as well, & then of course back then majority of the active people online were obsessed with Kaa-tan, 渡辺かおる Watanabe Kaoru, 吉田夏海 Yoshida Natsumi, & Angeleek for the more extreme. I even wore some very flamboyant banba-style make-up & hair for the entire first sophomore semester at my university (University of San Francisco). The receiving crowd was extremely discouraging, but there were the few who would approach & actually give me kudos for having balls---SWEET >0>
THE POINT IS---I still really like the relative extremes/difference of those styles, even though sexier & 'prettier' styles like agejou, sexy onee, koakuma, amekaji (& even still sometimes himegyaru) styles have evolved as the majority of gyaru-style preference, at least in the western world, I'd say. There's something about the aesthetic of the pale hair, pale lips, pale eyes, with the tan that I still find 'wild & sexy'----& I'm not talking about looking like sunburnt beach barbie trash >0>
If I'm not doing a more exaggerated look, my gal style doesn't even come off distinctly gyaru. Especially in photos, even my most extreme make just looks gyaru at best, even if I look like an alien in person. I know it's all in the application & me not getting the look down, but I can't seem to get it right.
I actually just really like looking unnatural.
Could be more extreme like this though.
