Hime Gyaru Makeup & Hair Tutorials

I present to you the Hime Gyaru Look 🙂



Here’s my take on this look and I hope you pardon the lack of BLONDE PUFFY HAIR and killer pink cheeks on my part 🙂 heehee


The Hime Gyaru look is similar to that of looking like a princess, big blonde wavy hair, big eyes, light brows, soft pink cheeks and pretty dresses…. I love the idea of dressing and acting like a Princess because we are only young once and we ladies deserve to be pampered. With all the stresses put on ladies in present times, it’s only right that we put ourselves first when the time calls for it.

During my short trip to Japan last year, I was captivated by all the Himegyarus on the streets. Their hair was amazing, their dressing unique, their makeup flawless.

The amount of time, money and effort that goes into such careful outward presentation spoke volumes to me. It made me feel guilty about being sloppy!

Lets get into this whole  HIME PRINCESS craze!

Gyaru is a fashion in japan for teenage girls that’s all about designer

clothes, para para(a structured dance done to eurobeat and trance music),

and having fun. The girls often tan or dye or bleach their hair but that’s not

necessary. There are many  types of gyaru but the one that is becoming

increasingly popular is himegyaru style.

This style is not to become confused with the Japanese lolita fashion who wear poofy skirts and try to be child-like. Hime gyaru is about looking like a young lady who is well off. They wear cocktail dresses in mainly pastel colors with lots of bows. They usually are fair

skinned or don’t have very dark tans. Their hair is often light brown or blonde and in a beehive style. The hair is VERY big.
The point of the style is too look fancy and

beautiful like a young woman not an innocent little girl like


Here are several links that have pictures or discuss hime:

a livejournal community for himegyaru
a forum to discuss gyaru fashion
a resource site for himegyaru


For any Himegyaru, wearing BIG PUFFY HAIR is one of the most basic and essential steps.

Below are some videos that have helped me immensely with curling techniques to achieve the HIME look.



Personally I really really liked this Long wave hair video. I applied the  same technique to my hair and found that my waves were extremely “ curly fries-ish.” This is a pretty useful and effective technique  for Japanese Looks!

In the past, I under estimated the usefulness of a hair curler to achieve volumious hair. If I could redo all my hair purchases, I would get myself a great curler ( Luv Jose Eber), a good hair straightener , hair pins,a backcomb and hair spray.

This video has got to be the strangest mix of the lot. She’s obviously an asian-ish girl who does tutorial videos in FRENCH on Hime gyaru Inspired hairstyles. The world is one big melting pot. Geez












€My Himegyaru Inspiration€ :




Sometimes I feel absolutely grossed out looking at my naked face. However, one look at these Korean stars with and without makeup brings me a little more comfort, knowing that everyone needs to put in some effort to look good.

Makeup is our friend 🙂








– Hime eyebrow look is not too thin or thick. Its got to be just right with a medium arch and brows should be a light orangey brown.

-Fill in eyebrows with pencil and apply small short strokes.


– Using an angled brush and taking a mixture of a light orange and brown color, fill in the brows. Brows should be kept a few shades lighter than your hair color.

-Eyebrow Mascara ( Ettusias). A cheaper and equally effective alternative would be to use a light brown mascara and sweep over brows.



-A mixture of Pinks and Light Purple was used on my eyes. I touched up a few times at the end of the look, especially when I was trying to put on my falsies. Sometimes, the eye color isn’t as intense as you expected and its really okay to reapply.


-Blend NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil in Milk on top and bottom lid, to act as an eye shadow base



-Blend a mixture of pink and purple eyeshadow close to lash line and extend a little over the crease. Asian lids in general are very heavy and we usually have to “ create” our own Crease with a darker eyeshadow color.


-Blend the Pinkish E\S with ur fingers. This is the method I like to use when I am wearing a creamier base, like NYX Milk Jumbo pencil.


-Blend a dark blue from the 120 eyeshadow palette on the bottom eyelid. Its okay to be messy here.

-Using my new favourite Liner brush from MAC * 266* and any random black gel liner, I once again line the top and bottom lash line.

-Re- Line my eyes with SANA Extra Heavy Liquid Liner for more intense color ( makeup needs to be exaggerated somewhat for picture)


-White eyeliner on the bottom water line. An eye widening trick that is used by professionals all the time. I am using MAC Eyeliner in Fascinating.



-Apply an off white eye shadow color to the brow bone areaIMG_6780 IMG_6784

-At this point, I wouldn’t touch up on the eye shadow cause it tends to get a little messy  when I put on the falsies. I prefer to wait till the end to clean off any mistake than layer on more pinkish\purplish eye shadow.



-Apply Mascara. As much as you want.


-Luscious Lashes x2

Critical for looking like a Princess





-Tip* Do re-apply liquid eyeliner to the bottom lash line and smudge slightly for that wide eyed look.IMG_6752 


-Thick layer of gloss!

        Aww… wordpress sounds like a pain =[

        Is it hard to curl horizontally? I’m very scared of the hot tongs! Any tips besides being super careful? ;p

        What other items have you tried from ELF? So far, I only have five items from their Studio line. I must say that I only like two of them – one is the powder brush and the other is the under eye concealer. Imo it works as well as MAC’s Select Moisturecover =D

        Oh yes, I love the gloss that you used in your tutorial! Very pretty and glossy!

    The only tip I know of is to curl horizontally for the portion that is away from the face and to slant the hair tong away from your face slighty when you are curling hair near the face…
    I’ve tried Elf Lip liner(pretty gd), eyebrow pencil, eyeliner ( sucky), Mascara( excellent) and their lip glosses ( nice!!)… Now that u’ve mentioned it, I read that their under eye concealor is very good too.
    U should do a FOTD with NARs VS ELF blush – I would love to see the difference 🙂

    I love this look! I think even without the circle lenses, your eyes would still have that “wide eyed” look to it hun. You know, sometimes I feel weird when I have white eyeliner inside the rim of my eyes. So I always rub some of it off so it would more natural on me, lol. But it looks real nice one you! The lashes really make the look pop!

    Dee Dee, I so get how white eyeliner can be quite ” unnatural LOoking” Its something thats n0t easy to get used to. I guess u already have big pretti eyes which literally makes white eyeliner pretty redundant. Maybe you could try a more flesh toned eyeliner if you prefer a natural look!

    You don’t really look that great without makeup , not to be horrible and the makeup is pretty poor. Hope to see something better
    Also why does your face look so greasy/shiny?
