Hime Kaji style

Hime Kaji is a style that many Hime Gyaru (See here for my post on how to dress Hime Gyaru) will wear on days they feel more lazy and casual. The look is about still being princess-like but in a more casual way, because of this it is much easier to make a Hime Kaji outfit from clothes you find in western high streets than it is to make a Hime Gyaru co-ordinate.

The look is more anything-goes as it is casual, but soft colours and floral prints, along with other girly details, are an easy way to make sure your outfit looks on-point.

Here are some great examples of Hime Kaji style

I found this picture on Tumblr. This outfit is still girly and fun but isn’t as extravagant as Hime Gyaru, meaning it will get less odd looks in public ;P

This image is from here. I believe it is a La Pafait dress. The fleece looks really soft and comfy, but easier to wear than a huge princess dress.

This is from the wonderful Sui Princess. Here. The soft pink cardigan and skirt and are things that you could probably find in normal shops, but the delicate lace detail adds a princess edge to the outfit.

These three are also fantastic examples of the style. They haven’t lost the princess look while dressing down for a more everyday style. Image from here.

The great thing about this style is that it takes a lot less time to get ready for than full on Hime Gyaru.

My Most Used Make-Up Products

Image

Today I’m going to show you my favourite make up products that I use to create my make up look. These are products that I use quite often. I usually do a dolly style make up, so I guess they’re suited for creating that look, but many of these products are versatile enough to be used in lots of different looks.

Face –Β  For a lighter every-day look, I use the Lily Lolo mineral powders in Porcelain and Flawless Matte. For a more heavy make-up looks I use the Collection 2000 lasting perfection concealer in 1 (Fair) as a foundation (this stuff is amazing), along with Talcum powder as the mattifying powder. I then use the Etude House Highlighter, along with my natural collection blush in Pink cloud. If I’m feeling fancy I will use the Urban Decay Baked Bronzer for contouring.

Eyes – My eyes probably take the most effort in my make-up, I use my white kohl liner (from Barry M) to rim my waterlines and in the corners, I might use the Etude House Tear Eyeliner in the corners sometimes if I want a more glistening look.

I use L’Oreal Liquid Liner to draw on my eyeliner, (I really like this stuff too!) If anything goes wrong I will use the Simple pen to wipe off any mistakes.

The next stage I do is the eyeshadow. I use the Front Cover palette with eyeshadows in Cloud, Gold, Copper and Black. I also love my Bourjois Eyeshadow in White, it’s very shiny and highly pigmented.

I will then stick on my falsies. I have some thinner more everyday ones and thick dramatic looking ones which are great for nights out. I cut up a cheap under-lash strip to smaller pieces so I can stick them on individually, which makes them look better. I got all these lashes from eBay, they were all really cheap too which is nice. πŸ˜›

The final stage is mascara. I use maybelline great lash mascara, it’s one of the best ones I’ve used, thought it isn’t waterproof it doesn’t smudge easily once it’s dried. I concentrate on the ends of my lower lashes.

Lips – For my lips I don’t really have specific favourites just yet. I swap between different lip products all the time. My most favourite for colour is probably my Clinique chubby stick, it’s very light and natural.

For a more dramatic colour I just love the Tony Moly red lip tint, it doesn’t smudge at all once it has dried which is more than I can say for the 3 lipsticks and the Apocalips gloss.

I sometimes use a Too Faced lip plumper, the tingle feels nice and it makes my lips look marginally bigger, but I doubt my boyfriend would appreciate me wearing it around him. ;P

The Vaseline Cocoa Butter is really great for moisturising, especially in the evening.

Other – These are products that don’t really fit anywhere else. A Too Faced sparkle for special occasions, A collection 2000 make up fixant spray to hold everything in place. I use the 17 clear mascara to fix my eyebrows in place, it’s not so clear anymore from months of foundation, powder and eyebrow pencil contamination. If my eyebrows are looking their best I will use the Rimmel eyebrow pencil to shade them in so they look a bit neater.
