Beauty Superstar


Have a makeover with Emily from Nijigasumi

How would you describe your style and who are your style icons?

I don't exactly have a style. I'm more of a patchwork quilt of things. I tend to lean to more urban clothing with lots of color though. As for icons, they change all the time. My current obsession is Samantha Ravndahl of Batalash! Her clothing and makeup is just so perfect!

What's in your everyday make-up bag?

That depends on what I'm doing. For the most part I'll just do foundation, bronzer, highlight, mascara, and bright lipstick. I usually leave me eyes alone unless I've really got somewhere important to go. For touch ups I only take lipstick and a mirror because I just never have time to touch up anything else. So I've had to make my makeup melt proof!

What is your beauty routine like?

Starting from when I wake up I just cleanse and then moisturize. Then I just do my normal foundation/contour routine and done! To take it off i normally just wash it off with my cleanser if I'm not wearing eyeshadow. If I am then I'll first take off my eyeshadow with makeup removing cream and then take off anything on my waterline with an oil free one on a qtip. Then cleanse in the shower. And moisturize! Can't forget that! I only exfoliate 1-2 times a week and I never use a toner. Toner can be harsh for your skin if it has alcohol in it.

If you could makeover a celebrity, who would it be and what look would you give them?

I can't choose just one so for a female, Jennifer Lawrence! I'm not sure what I'd do because I'd be too mesmerized by her bubbling personality and beauty to think! Haha! For a male, really love to body paint Kit Harington! I was so impressed with the transformation he underwent for Pompeii that I went beyond the realm of being attracted to like "Whoa, I need to get my hands on those abs so I can paint all the contours in a non sexual way of course!" Hahaha!

Any tips for someone wanting to mix up their look?

I literally get this question all the time! I always say to do a neutral eye and then add a pop of colorful winged eyeliner. I recommend to try royal blue first if your really scared. Also, try a really bright lip! Like pink or orange! Even a deep purple will completely change how you look. Bold lips are my number 1 trick to use if I didn't do my eyeshadow.

Do you do any other crafts and what are your hobbies?

I like to make Cyberfall accessories! I actually sell some on Esty under the name Asylum Garden. It used to be my main business until my makeup started taking over everything in my life. Hahaha! Makeup is/was my hobby and I feel really lucky/blessed to be able to pursue it as a business much as I am.

Is there anything else you'd like to add?

Thanks so much Cat for asking me to be apart of your Beauty Superstars! And remember, color is your friend!!!! :D
