With the increasing popularity of anime, and practically everything from anime-land, anime makeup looks never came as a surprise. Only refreshing, bubbly moments that we cherished. But wearables everyday anime makeup was still far behind. The World must wonder why are are so attracted to anime characters, attracted enough to replicate them. Created by humans and purposefully by the human ideals of beauty, attraction, innocence and strength, we were at once captivated by the enchanting grace and glamor of anime characters and wanted to be like them.
We invested our time, our dedication, sometimes even our money to get closer to these characters, to know them more. Some of them, we worshiped; others, we adored with all our being. In order to become more like them, we started organizing and attending cosplays. After all, who would not like to become the one they hold in the highest regards? Sometimes, the line between the cosplayer and the character they were representing grew so thin that the difference was barely recognisable. Cosplayers demonstrated, thanks to social media, how they were achieving these looks. As a result, numerous anime makeup looks took the platform. Trends set in, and we were engrossed in our own anime-verse, only, on earth!
But what if this love and passion for anime and its characters could cross its boundary and step into the ‘real world’? What if you could become like an anime character, every day, without people questioning and pestering you? This Instagrammer is proving that anime makeup looks can be very wearable for the mundane, quotidian life!

Some foundation, some blush, some brushing of the hair – and she ends up looking like a faint, earthly look-alike of the characters she’s doubling.
