♡ styling my newest Michell Macaron pieces! | ryosangata & jirai-kei codes ♡

Hello everybun!
For today’s blog post, I'm so happy to be sharing how I've been styling my most recent purchases from Michell Macaron with you~♪ Michell Macaron are a brand that specialise in cute, girly and elegant type clothes; a perfect fit for both ryosangata and jirai-kei coordinates. 

If you’re wondering why I like this brand so much, I’ll explain…! Michell Macaron produces the clothes that are well made, cute and extremely flattering to wear. They are best known for their famous ‘long leg skirt’ that promises to make anyone’s legs look super pretty, and fits your waist perfectly♡ Michell Macaron also offer multiple sizes from an xs-m, which is somewhat refreshing to see from a Japanese fashion brand as one-size clothes usually aren’t as diverse… hopefully this brand can add even more sizes in the future ꒰⑅ˊ͈ ˙̫ ˋ͈⑅꒱

All the Michell Macaron items featured in this post can be bought from the mycolour website, although they may be out of stock as some pieces, especially the skirts, are quite popular♡ With that being said, let’s review each coordinate and the lovely clothes from this brand!~

♡ Michell Macaron ‘skirt for beautiful legs’, houndstooth pattern, size xs 

This skirt really caught my eye as it’s just so girly, elegant and cute…!~

I wore this code for my most recent jirai-kei meet-up in London and it was so much fun to coordinate. This skirt is really comfy, has built in shorts and a sweet pastel grey x white colour palette that can be paired with the majority of my wardrobe. 

The houndstooth pattern seemed to match quite well with a white blouse or fluffy jumper, a perfect transitional piece to add to your wardrobe for welcoming spring, and was super comfy to wear with my short heeled shoes by Dearmylove

Outfit details:

Jumper: Liz Lisa 

Skirt: Michell Macaron 

Shoes: Dearmylove

Headband: Secondhand

Handbag: Mellfy Memory

Bracelet: Lafary

Rings: Vivienne Westwood, Justin Davis 

♡ Michell Macaron  ‘puff sleeve logo knit ‘, pink beige, size xs 

This knit really caught my eye when I first saw it on the Michell Macaron website…!~♪ 

It has a really pretty muted pink colour, with the word ‘Charme’ written across the front in a black font. There’s also a cute little heart detail, and it’s so soft…

I thought this piece would be perfect for casual ryosangata type outfits, and match well with both of the Michell Macaron skirts that I have. You could also pair this top with pretty much any jirai-kei black skirt and it would look adorable! 

I decided to try wearing this with black hair ribbons and a black skirt so that the pink stands out a little more ♡ I also like pairing my heart ribbons with this jumper, and some of my shoes that have heart shaped buckles too… 
These sparkly platform shoes are by Rojita and I’m so in love with them…! I think they’re quite unique for jirai shoes with the various silver accessories and glittery platform, and it’s nice to add a more detailed pair of shoes to my collection~

Outfit details: 

Jumper: Michell Macaron

Skirt: Michell Macaron

Shoes: Ank Rouge 

Necklace: Dior

Hair ribbons: Dearmylove 

Tiara: Amazon 

♡ Michell macaron ‘skirt for beautiful legs’, black, size xs 

This was the first piece that I bought from Michell Macaron, and probably one of the most worn skirts in my entire wardrobe…! It’s so simple, cute and matches everything. This skirt was already featured in my previous outfits blog post, but I couldn’t resist sharing it in this one too, hehe

Outfit details:

Blouse: Rojita
Skirt: Michell Macaron 
Bag: Maison De FLEUR 
Charm: Maison De FLEUR
Ring: Justin Davis 

I won’t go into too much detail as I have posted about this skirt before, but there are just so many reasons I love it…! The shape is flattering and cute, it’s the perfect length and you can wear it in any coord~ If you are planning to get your first piece from Michell Macaron, this is probably the one that I’d recommend the most…!~

Thank you so much for reading this post, and I hope it was somewhat helpful if you’re thinking of buying from Michell Macaron. I’m really happy with all the pieces I’ve gotten from them so far

Lots of love,

♡ jirai kei & ryosangata makeup tutorial ! | my everyday girly routine ♡

 Hello everybun…!

For todays post, I thought it’d be fun to share a little tutorial on my daily makeup. This type of makeup could also be worn for jirai kei or ryosangata type styles, and is my favourite makeup style to do…! it’s so fun and gives you such a doll-like and girly lookI’ve also included some links for purchasing the products mentioned, as well as hair styling tips at the end~

what is Ryosangata and Jirai-kei makeup?

The term ‘Ryosangata’ is a romanised version of 量産型, which literally translates to ‘mass produced type’. This essentially describes someone who dresses according to what is popular and cute for young women in Japan, making the wearer look ‘mass produced’ because the girls who wear this style do appear quite similar…! 
Ryosangata style makeup is, to put it quite simply, makeup that follows such trends. This style of makeup places an emphasis on sweet, pastel colours, eye enlarging contacts, defined tear bags that are known as namidabukuro and an overall sweet and innocent appearance. Ryosangata style makeup uses almost exclusively natural colours, such as baby pink, brown and pastel grey

Jirai-kei (地雷系) makeup, in comparison, tends to feature a darker colour palette, where gradient red lips and darker accents are more common. Main colours typically include purple, black, dark brown, grey and red, and, just like Ryosangata type makeup, there is an emphasis on eye enlarging contacts, defined tear bags, and an overall doll-like, cute and girly look~

I think the two makeup styles can be seen illustrated perfectly by the image above, which I took whilst shopping in Harajuku for cute contact lenses!♡ The heart shaped bubble reads ‘which one are you?’ with adorable illustrations of a jirai girl (left) and ryosangata girl (right). I ended up buying some of the bambi series contact lenses, and was really happy with how they looked…!~

Popular ryosangata and jirai-kei cosme brands

As the goal of ryosangata makeup is to follow cute current trends, it is a good idea to try and purchase products from some of the cutest leading makeup companies in Japan. You don’t necessarily need to only use products from these brands, but following them can be helpful for achieving this look. Here are a few of my favourite ryosangata type brands and links for how you can buy them outside of Japan…!

Jill Stuart 


Heroine Make



 Ryosangata & Jirai-kei makeup tutorial 

Base cosme

For my base cosmetics, I'm using a light moisturiser and then a high spf sunscreen from canmake. This sunscreen also acts as a primer, and feels so relaxing and cooling on your skin~ Next, I've applied a light pink base colour by Sana, and Dior concealer under my eyes, nose and chin to blur out my dark circles and pores a little. I love this concealer, as they have quite a good variety of shades…! I use the shade 00, which is perfect for those with pale skin. I like to blend concealer with a small round brush (like this one from Jill Stuart !) so that the application is more precise

For the blush, I've really been loving this shade of ‘lollipop pink’ by canmake~ The cool toned pale pink is so flattering for my skin type, and looks really cute with this style of makeup! I like to apply my blush in a circular pattern, towards the outer corners of my face. After applying blush, I then apply a little contour on the outer corners of my face. For contour, I just use a pale toned brown eyeshadow and blend~ Once the contour is done, I seal the makeup in place with this beautiful powder pact by Dior…! This pact has been very popular on instagram for ryosangata girls, and i can see why; it gives your skin such a beautiful, soft glow

Products used:

Base: Sana smooth colour base (pink)

Sunscreen: Canmake Mermaid Skin Gel  

Concealer: Dior Forever Skin Correct 

Blush: Canmake Powder Cheek

Powder: Dior Forever Cushion Powder

Eye cosme

For the most important part of the makeup, I am wearing these ‘almond’ coloured contacts from the Angelcolour brand~♪ This is a popular lenses brand for ryosangata style makeup, they had a super cute display in Harajuku when i visited...!♡ the colour of the lens I'm wearing is ‘almond’, with a diameter of 14.4.  I like to start by drawing on my eyebrows. having very light, soft looking eyebrows makes the face appear more cute and doll-like, and is a staple in ryosangata makeup. I prefer to shave my own eyebrows off and draw them in a shape that is higher up on my face, making my eyes appear bigger and softer~ it might seem a little extreme, but this makes such a difference to the overall look, so I'd actually recommend it...!

For mascara and liner, heroine make is my absolute favourite. The liner has such a fine tip, it's incredible!~♪ I apply a very small line that extends my eye shape, and droops slightly to give a softer and pien-like affect. Next, I've followed along my tear line to emphasise them, without drawing this line too heavily. After the liner, I apply heroine make mascara and separate the lashes with tweezers to make sure they aren’t sticking together. Be careful not to over-apply mascara, as that can also make the lashes look a little too clumpy~

Once the liner is done, I then move on to eyeshadow! I start off by applying a light sparkly white shadow by Jill Stuart to my upper lids, keeping this area of the eye quite simple. Next, I take a light brown shadow from the same palette and use it to contour the tear bags and natural shape above my eye. When drawing tear bags, I prefer to use an angled brush for accuracy, and to prevent as many mistakes~ For a sparkly under eye, I start off with a base of canmake soufflé eyes palette lightest shade, and cover it with Jill Stuart lightest shade in this palette. Next, i apply a pretty sparkly white eye glitter…!♡ The one i’m currently using is by canmake and is so cute To achieve a glittery look, I like to layer my glitters quite a bit, and focus on applying glitter to the centre and inner corner of my eyes.

Products used: 

Eyebrows: Jill Stuart nuance brow palette

Eyeshadow:  Jill Stuart eternal couture eyes velvet, Canmake soufflé eyes

Tear liner: Canmake glittery eye liner

Lenses: angelseries ‘almond’ type colour 

Mascara: heroine make waterproof mascara in black

Eyeliner: heroine make eyeliner in black

Lip cosme

For the lips, I tend to keep the makeup quite simple and focus on making my lips glossy. A darker lip works really well for jirai type makeup, but my preference is more of a light colour as worn by most ryosangata girls~♪ I start by applying a nourishing lip balm by Jill Stuart, which has a little bit of a pink tint to it. ‘Next, I’ve just applied my Dior lip glow balm over the top for a little more colour, keeping towards the inner corners of my lip for a subtle gradient affect. Finally, I’ve applied my Dior lip gloss over the top to make the lips nice and shiny! In addition, i also like to use a small brush and apply a little concealer to the sides of my lip and Cupid’s bow, to make them more pronounced 

Products used:

Ryosangata hair make: heatless curls

For the final part of the tutorial, I just wanted to share this easy hair tutorial with you from my twitter…! To achieve this classic ryosangata hairstyle, I simply wear this silk hair piece overnight, and wrap my slightly damp hair around it. Because my hair is bleached and dyed, it really helps to have a heatless curling routine that ensures I have my favourite twin-drills every day, whilst keeping the hair soft and healthy Additionally, this hair-set is just so easy to do, and saves me a lot of time…! I couldn’t recommend it enough~

Thank you so much for reading, and I hope that this post was somewhat helpful in giving you ideas for ryosangata or jirai-kei makeup and hair styling! I’ve been trying my best to make my routine as specific as possible, but let me know if you have any other questions or product recommendations

First Time At Maidreamin Café…?!~♪ | Exploring Akihabara!


Hello everybun!

For today’s blog post, I'm so excited to be sharing my experience visiting a maid cafe in Akihabara, Tokyo for the first time…!~

As this was the first day of this holiday, I woke up very early due to jet lag… around 3am Once I was awake, I was too excited to go back to sleep hehe♡ So, it was time to get dressed, do my hair arrange and cosme, then head to Akihabara! I was staying in Shinjuku, so it was a easy trip to do… although since we arrived around 6am, nothing was open  Despite that, it was a truly incredible experience to walk around such a unique place with no crowds, and try to shortlist what shops we would visit~♪ I’m a huge fan of collecting my favourite manga and anime goods in the forms of figures, tapestries, acrylic stands, charms and even more… so it felt impossible not to want to visit every shop!

The first thing i saw that made me really happy was this Pachinko shop that had Madoka art all over it…! Madoka is my favourite character along with My Melody, and I adore collecting their merch…! If you live in Japan, seeing promotional art from anime in the city is very common. But in the uk, it’s very rare; let alone your favourite characters or series! So seeing so much adorable art of my favourite girl really did fill my heart with joy~♪

The arcade itself had giant murals of Madoka everywhere, to advertise the themed game that they have for Madomagi. The game itself didn’t really interest me as I’m not really a fan of gambling-type games, but it was really fun to explore the arcade and take photos It was also surreal to see such a busy part of Tokyo so empty…! I’m not sure if the photos really do it justice, but it was too fun, and really gave us a chance to appreciate all the details!

Since exploring this district while shops were still closed took us a little over an hour, we decided to head back to the station area to try Starbucks…! On the way back, I compiled a little list of places to visit hehe… there were quite a few cute makeup and cosplay shops too! It was a little overwhelming how many places there were to visit~♪

For my Starbucks drink choice, of course I had to try the limited edition ‘red velvet’ flavoured Frappuccino that you could only get in Japan…! I wish we had such interesting flavours in the uk, it really was lovely♡ I ordered mine with oat milk, but of course many of the flavours and toppings used in this drink would only be veggie, not vegan, so for this trip it seemed best to adapt to being vegetarian~♪  

After the refreshing drinks, we headed to the first shops that were opening…!~♪ I was so happy to finally visit the azone and dollfie dream doll shops, I’ve admired these dolls for years and love my little doll collection so so much. Just to give you an idea how big some of these dolls are, here’s me sitting next to them for scale! They are so detailed and even more beautiful in person, one day I'd love to own a dollfie dream or 1/3 scale azone doll… these dolls were even dressed in jirai kei and ryosangata, how perfect?!

The dollfie dream store even had this little family tree about the history of dollfie dreams…! It’s incredible to see how they’ve become even more detailed over time, and how the doll art style has changed along with anime art styles over time. If you’re also a doll collector, I’d really recommend visiting the store to see this; they even had some of their rarest dolls on display in-store! It was so beautiful and made me want a dollfie even more hehe… they are very pricey, but also very cute!

After exploring many of the adorable shops, we finally made it to the cafe…!♡ We had both never visited a maid cafe before, so it was lovely to have the ‘welcome home’ greeting, and talk to such friendly and sweet maids too…! The first thing we talked about was, unsurprisingly, My Melo as I'd brought her as a charm on my backpack hehe~♪

After reading the menu a little, we ended up ordering a couple different goodies to share and review…!~♪ The first was this incredible matcha soufflé pancakes that were so tasty and refreshing; the slightly nutty, savoury azuki on the side paired so well with the fluffy sweet taste of the pancake I was so impressed as pancakes are my favourite food, and these did not disappoint! 

When you buy certain menu items from Maidreamin Café you also get this adorable clear file…! I was happy to get the cute pink one I wanted hehe, it's a really cute souvenir~ we also got a blue ver. which was really cute too! Perfect for visitors who might not be super girly ♡ 

The next thing that we ordered were these adorable bunny and bear themed ice cream parfait!~♪
I had always wanted to try the bunny parfait ever since seeing photos of Maidreamin online, so it made me really happy to finally order it and get to see this cute dessert in person. The parfait itself was a refreshing strawberry flavour with whip cream, various white and milk chocolate details, strawberry syrup, wafer biscuit and cornflakes underneath. The ice cream paired really well with the sweet syrup and whip cream, and it was just what I fancied for such a warm and sunny day I did, however, find that the cornflakes and wafer were a bit too dry, so I'd recommend swooshing the dessert around a little before eating, hehe

 We also couldn’t resist taking photos with the maids too…!~♪ I ended up getting a cheki with the cutest Neru-chan! All the staff were so lovely when we took the photos, and overall I really enjoyed the experience. Next time I'm in Akihabara, I'll definitely visit again, I'd love to meet more cute maids!

Thank you so much for reading,
