Purple Otona Girly Makeup Tutorial

My latest tutorial is a fun and playful take on the current Japanese makeup trend which is more simple and softer than traditional Gyaru makeup.

Otona girly is a more mature and feminine look introduced in Vivi Magazine. It is for grown up girls who still want a kawaii and pretty look without trying too hard. I added some elements of Harajuku style by making the eyeshadow more colorful and applying the blush a little higher than usual.

My current base shade is Mac NC20, Buff or Shell if Revlon. The Myra BB Cream in Ivory shade oxidized on me after awhile. I rarely get any sun now and using this with the Photoready powder gave my face a warmer/tanned complexion. Not such a bad thing to be honest since my face looks more lively with more color :)

Key Points of this look: 

  • Fresh looking skin
  • Full straight eyebrows- color must be 1-2 shades lighter than your current hair color to give you a softer and more youthful look
  • Tearbag makeup or Aegyo sal- contoured and highlighted to make eyes look rounder/bigger. If done properly they give more dimension to the eyes and can make you look younger. Make sure to conceal dark circles or eyebags properly. I prefer using a shimmery peach or pink eye pencil or cream shadow instead of powder as highlighter since it looks more natural.
  • Sheer frosted purple lipcolor- I normally avoid anything frosty since they tend to look weird on me but this color is quite sheer and it has the right amount of shimmer to add volume to my lips. 
  • High blush application - very popular with Japanese Harajuku style makeup. This is a tame version of that look that almost anyone can pull off.
