Personal Outfits (Split Personalities)

Been seriously deprived of a social life recently and it sucks the most when your school conveniently decides to hold a test on Sunday, I mean who does that? (My school, apparently...) But I took it as a opportunity to finally do my old gyaru-influenced style of makeup as I was gonna meet the Bf after the test.

Lately, I've come to realise that my dressing/ makeup style has split neatly into 2 distinct styles. One is of course the old gyaru style with the circle lens, thicker foundation, pink blush & heavily shadowed & lined eyes, complete with both top and bottom fake lashes. Naturally, the clothes are louder, more revealing and just simply over-the-top and trendy with super high heels. Of course, you can't have over-the-top style without big curly hair right?

My other style is more of a casual, laidback style with non-enlarging lens, less foundation, peach-pink blush, light sweep of eyeshadow and copious amounts of mascara. The clothes are relaxed & comfortable & mostly paired with flats and simple hair that's mostly flat-ironed or tied back.

Pictures explain it all:

Finally jumped on the feather-in-hair trend. I've been wanting to get one earlier but I've always only found earrings (I don't have pierced ears) & nowhere sold earcuffs without breaking my budget. I finally chanced upon this hair pin & bought it instantly, I love it as an additional accessory that's subtle but definitely adds an interesting twist.

I know after sifting through the list of makeup products, it doesn't seem like that much of a difference in terms of the base. But trust me, the effect is completely different and its definitely alot thicker.


I'm so glad that I've actually managed to allow the 2 parts of my clothing personality to co-exist, with one hand wanting to be loud, different from the crowd and all dolled up while the other wanting a more relaxed, simpler and comfortable look. Unfortunately, my wardrobe is the poor casualty from the long and tedious period of trying to balance both sides. So I need to sift through it soon and start purging unwanted stuff from there.


What about you? Do you have mixed personalities in your wardrobe too?
