Photoshop is a household name. Stop lying

When someone “ask do you Photoshop?” some would say yes , but then we’ll have the ones who want to be special, dont want people to know they edit or just don’t know that PS/ photoshop/ shopping is a household name.

Others who say “no I don’t…….I do edit my pictures though”, you do know that to Photoshop means to edit your photos right? To Photoshop means not only the program anymore.


So now we have people who are embarrassed and who don’t want to admit they edit their pictures so  they are quick to say “no I don’t use Photoshop” and leave it as that. It’s so much easier to say “yes I edit my pictures but I use this program if you want to know”.
We also have the, light editors.
Now when you hear photoshop you think of things like these girls below

Ulzzang to gyaru Pt3 Girls Generation 소녀시대

New video series, part 3 of my ulzzang to gyaru and Im getting better with my camera lighting, but now its too red. Still, that is better than being too ashy looking
Here is the video


Im mad though, I forgot one product to use in the gyaru transition like what I used in my older post ( http://deanell.heirofglee.com/2012/12/eos-max-sherbet-my-makeup-for-new-year.html ), you can see the true colors only because it was sunny and bright outside and I used a product that I finally receive. No worries though, the next video after the lens review and gyaru part 4 i’ll use this product to bring out the color more. I may need it cause I cant get my camera to show the true colors of the makeup.


In real life it looks wonderful but here you can hardly see the orange and if I make it more pale looking (the lighting) to show the true colors, ill turn up ashy. Cant win haha, but ill keep trying


hope you enjoyed the video and the new years. This picture is half gyaru have ulzzang. One day, one day ill get you to see the true colors

Gyaru Makeup is not only circles and lashes? My questions.

*This post was made around the beginning of January (look on the top haha)
and whats weird, is the fact that its a popular subject now*

Don’t you just hate hearing that? That the makeup you are doing or have done is not gyaru and this object is not gyaru and that -“Gyaru is not just circle lens and lashes. You need blush , contour and nude lips, this style that style these shoes”
That is just weird because remember that picture I posted some post ago post? (in january)

I will only talk of the makeup cause that is my …..third specialty
(First artist, second cosplayer, back to topic).
And to a bit of a point – I’m just showing how confusing the Gyaru style is.

I do not own this picture; Its been grabbed from internet (more likely tumblr)
With the over exposure, where is the contour? How about the blush? Maybe the nude lips?
When it comes to her makeup she is gyaru even without the other elements and a majority of people would agree. All she has is eye liner and lashes; don’t forget the Circle lens.

I do not own this picture; Its been gained from internet gyaru inspiration
How about this; it is known for gyaru makeup to have the droopy puppy eye makeup
or its the most popular, the same for false bottom eye lashes but so far she has none;
the contour is hardly noticeable, there is a red lip
and i’m not sure if she has blush, yet she give off that gyaru vibe don’t she?


So what is there for makeup other than contour, blush, and nude lips.
As you can see its not that much of a deal in those pictures or anything similar
(especially if Asian). Believe me there are so much pictures like this and it is considered gyaru.
(even when the makeup elements are there, you hardly can see the makeup)
Im thinking dark makeup most likely heavy, top lashes full, bottom lashes apparent, eyeliner,
circle lens and lots of light……exclude that last one.

But to the point do you think it is the
Asian features that makes Gyaru makeup right all the time for Asians
?
People forget we do have different features from Asians

Or what about when the style changes, who make up the rules to what is what and what is not?

How about the basics….
what are the few things that have never changed for the Japanese gyaru makeup?
-Of course the liner
-we also have the lens
-Lashes as well

But what makes it different from the American culture? Only thing that is different here is the circle lens (and maybe bottom lashes which is not an everyday routine). Contouring is nothing new and so isn’t the blush, the lips and also (top) lashes.

Are you confused now?
So am I so we have to go way back, back to ganguro.

I KNOW ITS MANBA !!!!!
Just take out the nose stripe, that is not the point.
The main point of this is different am I right? To be different.
Right now that is what circle lens do for us here in the states.
And there are so many categorizes in gyaru that is so far from one of the first types of gyaru
and compared to now its a look that is an everyday any girl look
who knows how to do their makeup well.

So what else is there?

well…. The eye shape. Think about it
not much people who do makeup in the states
want to change their eye shape…they accentuate it .
These girls (Back then Original Gyaru)
didn’t accentuate they would changed their eyes completely.
They would extended it, drop it and even bring it up more.

How to make that modern?
They already have with plenty categories.

I wouldn’t know much cause I don’t know everyone’s face shape and everything gyaru.
But for me its all about lining my outer eye shape to another extended shape.

Speaking of the categories in Gyaru, have they seem more American eagle?
We also have the “Spencer’s” gyaru looks and a bit of “hot topics” going on, and yeah forever21.

So in conclusion, gyaru is nothing more than girls in the Spencers/American eagle/ punk rock (and some others to be named) with added circle lens, the usual makeup with bottom lashes and the changes of the eye shape? And that is the only break between ordinary makeup and gyaru makeup? Oh wait some of the new gyaru styles dont require obvious bottom lashes, I forgot (pictures I gave here also prove this)…and some styles are completely natural with makeup applications so lets start over.

So in conclusion Gyaru is nothing more than girls in the Spencers/American eagle/ punk rock (and some others to be named) so basically all and any fashion with added circle lens?
…Yeah, there you have it.

Gyaru: Any style any makeup…just make sure you have them circle lens on
to look a bit different.

So what the hell is ulzzang?

Maybe you should figure that out because in the end
it is your face and you make your own face rules.
Though if you look like an ordinary girl….
Why should you call yourself gyaru? What makes it so?
Ask yourself these honest questions?

Thanks for reading the way I think.

With pictures there comes 1000 words. Who said its from you and only from you


Comfort: 5/5
If you clean it before it goes in your eye then you going to be fine
(same for when putting them back in the case)
Color: 5/5
It have the natural and the obvious. I get told I have pretty eyes
then other time I get told awesome contacts. I guess it depends on your lighting
Enlargement: 3/5
Not too big not too small and you don’t get the blur like in 14.2 and under
You don’t look like an alien but it still gives enlargement.
3 is not a bad number just its just in the middle and best of both worlds
Come back again: 5/5
Hells yes ill buy this again

Recommendation
Anyone- From cosplay to a day out.

Komi the expert character

You know where im going with this.
To start off this post I will say I DON’T OWN ANY OF THE (Komi xi) PICTURES. I also think Komi xi as a Anime character not human. If you think she is real well let me show you why she is not. No I am not saying dont take my opinion , this one is one of those opinions that is needed to be shoved down your throat. Dont be blind and let your fantasies take over you. But if you know its a fantasy and not related to the same fantasy of a celebrity on a magazine that is overly photoshopped to perfection , but to the level of a Anime character in between a person that is cosplaying, then enjoy an just nod your head.

First go search on Xiaxues guide to life videos and check out her “how to photoshop” one and two. Be amazed and see what you can do and not track on PS and then come back here.
Note on that tool that can sharpen, liquefy and make your eyes bigger.


This is one of her ealier stages of PS. This is a modern ulzzang; the doll that photoshop perfect skin, circle lens makeup and lashes along with that cute lip thing they have the force to do. You can see the blur around the hair line and chin area even though her hair is sharpen on your left and compared to the left and right other than the overly photoshopped bright light the nose is thinner than the other picture.

Well let me tell you why the nose is thinner. It is the lighting that is making it smaller.
So that is all here


Why do her eyes looks like its pasted on the glasses on the left?
Why is her left eye a little too angled down and bigger than the other too the right?
The nose is the same but she is still learning here. The blur is still there but much better.


This is later in the game. She got much better didn’t she. The nose is way too sharp and her chin is much more pointer from the other pictures on top. Her makeup is better as well. Her eyes is more round on top and her lines on bottom is more sharp and widen.
Kind of like my makeup style.
I do not think she can get away with the “I paste my face on” look. The whole picture looks sharp but her face which gives that effect. She overly PS and that is what is making her an Anime character and not a pretty human being.


Now do not look at the last bottom left picture. That is not her
But on top with the reddish brown hair.

Boom!
There she is. Same cut, same color, same bang, same eyebrows, Same chain, same shape of face, same lashes and same lens oh wait….same shirt. That is komi xi that top picture. See where im going with this again. Look at that top picture and the one to compare it on the bottom right.
Boom right there again. You have your real komi xi without PS (and maybe surgery) compared to the Photoshopped one. Amazing yes but she will get better with practice. Now after those facts and proof with the after pictures you cant consider her real but a anime character or cosplayer.
I like the character komi but hate the people believing that is humanly possible. It sad cause take a look at this cause who is to say she stopped (PS) there with her face.


I dont think this is her but check out the photoshoping, I can tell which is the start, but can you? Things like this makes me sad cause most think this is real. Its like the first time on the internet and you click the links for a free ipod or apple laptop.

Can you believe she is real now?
Or as a real person or being?


She is not plain and simple


Look at that paste my face effect under the hat less human and more anime. Look at her past look on the right, less paste and more human.

And here she is now in 2011. She improved and still is misleading im sure.
I think she belive this is her, and that is the sad part. Hopefully she really dont think this is herself cause that will lead to breaking down when she gets old and Grey and no body is left.

Who knows what is going on in her life but your goal is to not become something so unreal you become lost.

Look at it yourself
