im going to play the devil's advocate here; someone told me here that the big anime eyes/anime girl look might just be the personal aesthetic she really enjoys, and although her makeup can be cakey and the eyeshadow styles aren't varied, her day-to-day look is her personal choice. i feel like her whole emphasis on the "halfie" thing has subsided (if its come back up recently lmk, but i dont think shes all about that aryan blood thing anymore), and i think the snow filters also negate the details in her makeup. idk most of riots female champions nowadays all have that "insta-baddie" face (irelia, kaisa, etc) but i feel like emiru could definitely change the way she does her eyeliner depending on the character shes cosplaying (not doing the full-around-the-rim-eyeliner, for example, for some).
i feel like her cosplays are getting a lot better—yeah, the makeup is still repetitive and all but the quality looks a lot better and idk the neeko one is really nice personally (really like the scales detail and the colors). ya the bunny on her chest pic is ridic and all but idk i actually find her stream pretty enjoyable now. but the tik toks are a little cringey yeah lol
lol havent rlly kept up w/ this thread or poki in general, does she still stream gta rp? either way, i agree that lily def deserves a better friend than poki lol—if poki doesnt like hanging out with OTV or doesnt like the brand, then why not just branch off and create her own?
tbh shes much more bearable now lol and has become much chiller than before; her gameplays gotten better at least, and ya she abuses snow and shops her pics prolly but ive never rlly had a problem w/ that lol (altho srsly tho, emiru if u lurk here, PLEASE change the makeup style or makeup you use - i get her style is anime/gyaru eyes and stuff but im p sure she does have a pretty face and she isnt doing it any justice with the cakiness)
to be fair, my friend doesn't know anything about the gaming community and just thinks its annoying that he watched her streams frequently before lol he's a nice guy and not at all a desperate teen wannabe thirsting after her lol (we're in college lmao), and he's not at all someone who's manipulated by her antics haha. i guess he's the small percentage of the fanbase that watches her for fun (which i also don't get, i think he watched her fortnite streams a lot but ive never watched her fortnite stream before so i guess she struck him as a "cool chill gamer girl" which is the image shes trying to market to her fanbase). seriously though he is a really good person, on top of all his shit, mad smart and in a happy relationship - when i talked ot him again he told me he wasnt a hardcore fan, just tuned into her stream time to time and found her to be entertaining during her fortnite era
ahhh yeah tbh im not that into rp streams so i dont exactly entirely get the culture (i did watch some clips here and there of poki's rp and then other big streamers' rp to compare the quality, and even i was cringed out by poki's over the top squeaky voice and accent and inability to immerse in whatever story she's supposed to be in lol), so i initially thought it was a little hypocritical to criticize poki when another big streamer i watched also kept his cam on. but i see why she's being criticized for sure, i just keep forgetting that a majority of her twitch audience have a very simple hive mind and how good she's at manipulating them lmao
i noticed she went back to fortnite today, maybe she's realizing that no pixel isn't gonna get her anywhere?
umm dont other big name streamers (summit) also have their cam on during rp? poki doesnt do it as much as summit tbh (like she'll leave it on, then will grudgingly still turn it off), although tbh her rp is still pretty bad, i just dont think leaving it on is something to heavily criticize her on.
i hate the blush on that twt like what... it just looks stamped on or smthn the fuck like the eye look is also v muddy but also v like... how do i say this saturated? it looks so unnatural because the rest of her makeup looks so... sheer? idk like i can barely see the contour and it just doesnt work im sorry this looks like a botched laura lee look; her natural makeup is just fine with her color tone despite its tendency to get cakey sometimes but that look is not it
what disappoints me is that these reviews aren't even legitimate they're from fans blindly throwing in support rather than fans actually interested in makeup. as far as im concerned, this isn't even a legitimate beauty gig, it's just a side project poki's dabbling in ig for her own interests. while i do appreciate her showing interest in something OUTSIDE of perfect waifu uwu, this was not the move lol. im just annoyed bc actual beauty influencers poor their hearts and souls into making their makeup line and they actually have to do so much behind the scenes to make that shit happen. and poki gets a free pass ig.
