Kawaii Decora Inspired Makeup Look



With the early morning sunlight coming through my windows, I set out to make myself as KAWAII as possible! Inspired by one of my favorite styles ever, decora, I wanted to try translating that style into one for people with bald heads. (Because you are just as cute with or without hair!)

If you are unfamiliar with the style decora, don’t be alarmed, most people are. It is a fairly new Japanese street style known for its excess of cute (kawaii) accessories, usually in the color pink. I have been enamored with this style since high school when I discovered it online. It is unlike any other style I have seen and I imagine it’s one that you will either love or hate. I highly suggest you look it up if you are interested. There is so much great inspiration on the web. Early 2000’s me was in heaven scrolling through Google to look at all the cuties with dozens of clips in their hair.


Without hair, my goal was to emulate the excess of accessories by gluing gems and cabochons to my face. I have a bag full of exactly those things, which I used to create this kawaii look. I kept my makeup minimal, using mostly blush and white eyeliner, as well as making little wings. I wanted this look to be as genuinely decora as possible for an American with a shaved head.



What do you think? Is this look a bit too much for you? Or are you inspired by decora’s crazy and cute style like me?  Let me know what you think!
