Miyoshi's Make-up Tutorial

I think this scan was originally from Zipper Magazine, but here is a tutorial from Miyoshi on how she does her lovely wide-eyed dolly make-up!

A Dolly Kei Coord for Feeling Nostalgic

It's been ages since I've posted a personal outfit coordinate (aside from worky outfits on tumblr and instagram), and I was feeling inspired by the cooler weather and the general nostalgia I've been having for older Dolly kei styles (putting together sets upon sets for tumblr will do that I suppose, hehe!) Unfortunately, I couldn't get a good full-length shot. But! I did get a few good detail shots in it's place.


I was really inspired by Miwako's make-up! I'm not always the biggest fan of her coords, but I always love how she does her blush. I also have always loved red lipstick with Dolly, so I decided to give it a try myself. I'm really happy with it!



My blouse and skirt are incredibly old H&M, fake fur stole is vintage, shoes are Jeffrey Campbell, Necklaces are Fashionably Dead and F21, Tassel is second hand, rings are from all over the place, cross earrings are Claire's, tights are H&M, and my hair piece is handmade.


And in case anyone likes my make-up, my powder is MAC Studio Fix in NC15, my lipstick is MAC Red, my blush is MAC but I'm not sure of the colour because the name is worn off, my eyeliners are Urban Decay in Zero and Yeyo, my shadow is Urban Decay's "Black Palette" in Barracuda, and my mascara is Benefit's "They're Real!".

I hope every is having a really lovely evening, and I hope you enjoyed my coord :)

What are your favorite coords? Why do they stand out to you?

Favorite Snaps of the Week

Still having layout issues from the Blogger app, here's the snaps though!*

I'll fix them up with a bit of commentary later today!

*All Fixed!

Kaori, photo from the Grimoire Almadel blog/ I love the girly blouse and the poofy short skirt. Perfection.

Yukari,from the Grimoire Almadel blog. I pretty much choose this for the navy blue. I love this colour so much!

Miyoshi, again, I pretty much choose this for the colour. The emerald green is dazzling in my opinion.

Links Are Updated!

The "Links" page has been updated to include all shop staff blogs, and I'm working on compiling a set of links for Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube Videos. One goal down, 1000 to go, hahaha.
