IGARI Makeup: the Hangover Look

IGARI Makeup, the most popular makeup in Japan. As of last spring when it debuted, it's still growing strong. IGARI SHINOBU, the creator of this look is a famous makeup artist in Japan. We know that previously, most Asian makeup was pointed at emphasizing the eyes to make them look bigger. Right now, that's out the window due to this trend sweaping the industry. Because Igari is such a big influenzer it has been picked up by many popular magazines and media entertainment widespreading to beauty gurus and fashionistas everywhere.
You may be asking yourself, "What is Igari Makeup?" Many also know this look as the "hang over" makeup. This is totally not what someone looks like the next morning after a night of fun, but I guess it does resemble anime characters when portrayed as being drunk. They blush a lot because they feel embarrassed.
Either way it looks cute, and adds something unique to your style. Regarless of what it might be, this makeup can be adapted to any style because of its simplicity. I've seen it on many girls with different fashion styles, but same makeup.
How to get the look? As I mentioned before, this look is very simple, and very easy to recreate. The look is separated into three ky points which are: natural eye makeup, blushed cheeks and rosy lips. I'll give you ladies some tips on how to achieve this look.
  • Of course, start with a clean face. That way when you're moisterizing, you can massage it to lock it in and promote blood circulation to face. It will wake you up and make your skin look healthier.
  • This look is a minimalist makeup, so keep that in mind when doing you foundation routine. That being said same goes for the eyes. Lightly put on a soft shade if desired and curl your lashes. If you wish to use mascara to make them stay all day that fine- just be cautious of the amount of layers. Natural is what we are going for in the eyes.
  • The most important point is....the blush! Now, you want to emphasis this feature by adding a gradation of blush to your cheeks. A darker shade of blush to the outer part of your cheeks and a lighter shade of blush to the apples of your cheeks. This will create the look of soft feminine skin and your girlish beauty. 
Just like any trend, looks evolve and beginning to change into other ones. Thus, a new word has risen, calling girls that use this makeup, "Holstein Face." Which pretty much means, "face full of attractive hormones." Weird I know. But most girls wear it for the  sheer reason its an innocent yet sexy look.
I'll also share a few videos on the different takes of the Igari makeup. Remember there are no rules to makeup. Just do what make you feel beautiful!

I'd like to expiriment with this kind of makeup.
