So kawaii!

Celebrity makeup artist Jelly Eugenio is known to work his full glam magic on the likes of Nadine Lustre, Sarah Lahbati, and It girls Georgina Wilson and Isabelle Daza. But just recently on his YouTube channel, the makeup artist blew us away with a different makeup style that's sweet and kawaii—and it’s actually inspired by his love for animé and cosplay!


According to Jelly, the look mainly draws inspiration from "gyaru," a Japanese makeup trend that focuses on making the eyes appear bigger, brighter, and doll-like, resembling the ones in manga and animé. "I was obsessed with this a few years ago, so [a lot of my work] emphasizes on really beautiful, big eyes," says the MUA.

To cop the look, Jelly first preps the model's face using Cure Natural Aqua Gel for gentle exfoliation, and then follows it with Kracie's Hadabisei 3D Face Mask to make her skin appear smoother and brighter prior to applying makeup.

To achieve the doll eye effect, he relies on a number of products from K-Palette, starting with the Lasting 2-Way Eyebrow Liner to define and fill in the arches. Jelly then uses the Real Lasting Eye Pencil to tightline the eyes, and the Real Lasting Eyeliner in Super Black to create a subtle winged flick. Finally, the MUA uses the Lasting Cream Shadow to illuminate the inner corners of the eyes and give them a light sheen, finishing off the look with an eye pencil to define the lower lash line.
