Kumiko Funayama Inspired Makeup

Hello hello! =)

Long time no post ah, been enjoying my days without makeup XD
But anyways here's a new look I tried :D
A look inspired by 舟山久美子 Kumiko Funayama.... or Popteen models in general lol.

So let's take a look at this trend going on in the Popteen magazine :)
Here we rely heavily on the upper liner to get that puppy/tear drop eye, and using a lot of false lashes to frame/enlarge your eyes

*** this is not Kumiko! This is 菅野結以 Kanno Yui. But you get my point right? Most Popteen models are going for this look now lol!
**** I DO NOT OWN THESE IMAGES!!****


And let's start =D
Here's the map for eyeliner:

For this look I used very little eye shadow... to add more depth to the eye.
I applied some half way on the outer corner of lower line, and all over my lid.
I mixed "mad hatter" and "midnight tea party" from the Alice in Wonderland pallette.

I also very lightly rimmed my lower waterline with white eyeliner pencil, and applied white eye shadow on the inner tear duct of my eye.

Now onto the falsies =)

And tah-dah! =D

Super easy eh?! XD


For upper lashes, I used MAC #7 (love these!)
For lower lashes, I used Koji #14 (which are designed for lower lashes). I got these from e-Bay.

heart-shaped packaging is to die for >_<
I used these because I've had them for a while and been wanting to try them lol! But if you don't want the criss-cross lower lashes, you can also go for MAC #39 (which you have to ask for; at my local store they don't display them) or your other choices of lower lashes :D (I know Koji has a lot more variety of lower lashes... have yet to try them :P)

Now, these Koji lashes have rather rigid rims and it was impossible to just glue them on, so I cut them into 4 pieces. And I used a tweezer to put them on.

And... you're done!!! =D

Makeup Forever HD Foundation

I used Benefit High Beam for highlight on my cheek bones and down my nose.

Select a very light pink for your blush to get that cute look. You can use MAC "well dressed" or NARS "desire" or other colors along that line. (I used well dressed cuz I don't have the NARS one!!! hahah. But the NARS one is even better in my opinion...)

I applied nude lip liner first then applied MAC Victorian lipstick, topping off with some Victoria Secret lipgloss in "Beautiful"


Now onto picture time!! .... XD

  10. Hi Frances,

    Thanx for the in-depth eye MU tutorial. You did a great job and you look really kawaii in the photos. I love to get inspirations from Popteen too! I love experimenting with eye make up but I don;t like the overly anime big eyes look. I've got naturally small eyes so MU is a saviour and I'm alwys on the look out for MU blogs. I'm saving your blog under my favourites so I'll be back soon to check out your blog again.

    Have a great week!

    @ Ken: ohh I see haha I didn't click into your friend's page so her pic TOTALLY fooled me O_o I was like for real?! LOL. and pictures can be misleading... haha... don't believe what you see haha

    @ Jo: thank you so much :) I'm glad you like it! I have super small eyes too T__T and I don't like the overly exaggerated anime eyes either... but simpler/clean anime eyes are cute and fun to do :D (although I never wear them out XDD heehee

    @ Daphne:
    I think you misunderstand me. My point is to "work with" what you have using makeup to make your features stand out, instead of trying to actually change it. Some of my makeup looks are inspired by models/celebrities so I used what I think is their techniques-- of course the result being trying to look close to what they look like, but these are only for fun. Nothing in that description says you should use makeup to look like someone else/conform.
