Hi again, pretty girls and boys! So, lately I've been thinking a lot about the extremes of Gyaru fashion - like circle contact lenses and false eyelashes - and wondering when it becomes inappro- priate to wear them (in terms of age). 'Too young', for example, is a factor I've been contemplating since discovering, and choosing to join, Gyaru; but I was so excited about it in the beginning that I never really wondered if the make-up would look too mature on me. All I knew was I wanted to wear it and price didn't matter.
.When I think about it, I still have the same passion for Gyaru make-up (eyemake, especially) I had in the beginning. If not, more so, as I've done a lot more research and spent a lot of time collecting tutorial scans, but I can't help but fear what my family would think because of my age (I'm fifteen, going on sixteen in August).
My parents wouldn't make me stop wearing it, but I can tell that they would continuously hint at it being too extreme 'for me' and/or not looking age-appropiate, and it makes me feel like I'm embarrassing them. I know it seems pretentious of me to assume this about them, but it wouldn't be the first time they've done this.
.They're my family, so of course I respect their opinions and wouldn't want to hurt them intentionally; but I refuse to let what other people think of me influence my appearance anymore. I used to be the kind of girl that only wanted to impress people, but I'm tired of caring about what other people think or say - it's just not worth it.
After all, I'm living for myself, not to please anyone else; so I especially want to enjoy my youth while it lasts. If that means spending an hour getting ready every morning, going groccery shopping with a tiara tucked into my four-inch bouffant and wearing ridiculous, 3D nails, so be it. Sounds like fun to me!
Well, that's it for today, everyone. Thank you so much for reading! Hope you're all having great weekends! TTFN. ♡
