a lover of makeup and Harajuku street fashion.
Please introduce yourself!
Hi! I’m Ruu, from Mexico. I’m 23 and truly love makeup and Harajuku street fashion.
How did you get into make-up?
Around 6 years ago, I started with Halloween makeup. Later on, after learning about some J-Rock bands, I began exploring Harajuku fashion in depth and my style comes from there.
Please describe your look today.
I think my style could be described as a mix between shironuri and eroguro.
What does beauty mean to you?
For me, beauty is an art that causes feelings and triggers sensations just by looking at it. It’s perfection lies in all the small details.
