Lizzie Loves: Gyaru Autumn/Winter Collections 2016!


I think that this is the first time I've actually been looking forward to Autumn; I guess that our summer over here was pretty bad and a mixture of super hot days and miserable, rainy days, that I'd rather have it just miserable because at least then it's kind of predictable. Another reason could be that I'm really, really looking forward to Halloween! I've already began purchasing some Halloween decor to jazz my room up.

The coming of Autumn also means that shops are bringing out their Autumn/Winter collections - this already started at the end of August but I decided to wait a little bit until their full collection is out. And now the time has come and I've put together a few of my favourites!

Koakuma Ageha October 2016 Mag Scans

ane ageha gyaru magazine

It seems like the world of gyaru is making a comeback - Ageha has returned with a new October issue. The front cover has all of that glitz and sparkles that it used to back in the day, with Sakurina looking like an absolute goddess on the front.

As soon as I saw it online I knew I had to snap it up, and a couple of weeks later it had arrived on my doorstep. I was so happy! I used to buy gyaru magazines all of the time but then they got discontinued and all but Ane Ageha remained. Koakuma Ageha (a.k.a Ageha) seems to be making a slow comeback though, which is amazing and I hope other magazines will follow suit! I instantly sat down and flicked through it, and even though I can't read a word of Japanese (oops) I still found it extremely interesting, so I decided to share some of my favourite pages with you!

Shop 'Til You Drop

"Shop 'til you drop" was a bit of an understatement for me yesterday when I met up with the two lovely bloggers Fii and Han. I've never done so much shopping in my life and did I feel guilty? Not one bit!  The cheapest kind of therapy is retail therapy, and I revelled in it (although I should probably stop using that excuse now...)

It was the perfect day for shopping - it was pouring it down with rain. Normally I hate the rain but there's nothing better than staying indoors for the whole day drooling over beautiful clothes when it's raining outside. When I last went shopping for that gal meet I was sweating all of my makeup off (not pretty) and I felt all horrible and sticky (even worse) so yep, rain was good! Luckily it didn't ruin our outfits - I was decked in my Liz Lisa top & jeans from Kawaii Gyaru Shop*, Han in her Liz Lisa dress, and Fii in her kfashion attire.

How to Do Gyaru Makeup with Sensitive Skin

gyaru makeup, sensitive skin

My skin is terribly sensitive; when I'm not suffering from eczema I'm suffering from hayfever, and both are a nightmare for my face. I used to get reactions even when I don't wear makeup and one day I got so fed up with it that I threw all of my makeup away and started afresh.
I realise that I'm probably not alone when I say that gyaru makeup can sometimes be a nightmare for sensitive skin, so I did some research and experimenting over the past year or two and finally found some solutions to overcome it!

Let's Hangout and Chillout

If there's one resolution I've made this year that I've stuck to is that I have seen my friends more often than ever. Every time I arrange something with my gal pals I would anticipate it days before - planning my outfit and making sure that everything is perfect for the big day. Because it is a big day for me; I love seeing them so much! And it isn't just because we're into the same fashion but because we get along really well and have interests outside of that. Nothing is better than just taking selfies, chilling out and singing along to some really cheesy karaoke.

I feel like it's still not enough, however, so I make the most out of the times that I do see them and my love for gyaru grows. I wouldn't be meeting this amazing bunch of loonies if it wasn't for that fashion, and I am forever grateful for it. Me and my friends have talked about our life after gyaru but I don't think I could ever cut it off completely. It's a lifestyle, and I want to keep it that way for as long as I can.
