Travel with Me series are the footsteps that I have laid, around in Singapore and abroad.
Recently I have been doing some research, and thus the increased in interesting beauty articles are surfacing in Beauty Talk~
Furthermore, not forgetting the Munchkins! series, probably my favourite, because I really enjoy eating, if I could eat eat eat all day and not grow fat xD
So today's Doll Me Up Tutorial is on Everyday Korean Inspired Makeup, and also to show you how I would usually apply highlighter or blush for that special occasion. If you are into Korean Ulzzang makeup, stay tuned to the upcoming makeup as well! ;)
You guys probably could guess, I usually don't apply face makeup because I prefer in allowing my skin to "breathe", and also I was getting used to being me. I did not really want to hide under the layer of face makeup because of my acne scars or budding acnes which annoyed me to the max!
But once in awhile, I would like to feel extra special, so I love to use a light weight foundation with light to medium coverage foundation or BB cream. Laneige's BB cream is great for those with oily skin as well, because they do not feel greasy after application, and it has light to medium coverage.
I am using my own makeup sponge as I am using a trial kit of this Snow BB Cream which I got from my StyleXStyle box.
Sooo, I simply applied a light layer of the BB Cream only on areas that I have redness, or pores. Applying it from the center of my face and outwards, so that it blends in seamlessly with my neck.
My naked eye as always, looking so tired ._.
Primed my lids with Urban Decay Primer Potion, honestly this is quite a decent product =D But the solution separates if you don't use it often - but nothing a "shake" wouldn't resolve.
With a light brown shade, dust it all over your lids
Using the darker brown, I applied it near to the lash line, but applying it from the outer corners inwards. This ensures that there is a slight gradient effect.
With a slightly darker brown, I concentrated it on my lash line and created a small flick at the end. That is going to guide my eyeliner ;)
Using my favourite SANA liquid liner, I lined it thinly, creating a small flick which follows the earlier curvature created.
Applying some shimmer powder from MicaBeauty, it helps to brighten the inner corners and allow that ageyo sal to appear more full~
Curl and apply your favourite mascara, which mine is Sasatinnie's Super Dolly Mascara? It is featured frequently, so I think you can guess ._. Because that's my favourite mascara for volume and length!
Groom the brows, simply draw 2 straight lines to create that full and youthful looking brows
Using the spoolie, blend it in, and make sure it does not look too harsh..
After much blending, my eye makeup is completed <3
As for the lips, I simply applied a lip liner and used a red lipstick with a lip brush to apply it precisely in the inner portion of my lips. But it did not appear too obvious, but nonetheless, gloss it up to create a beautiful kissable lip!
Now as for highlighting, and adding blush, see the white arrows - highlight, and pink arrow refers to the blusher. That's how I achieve a slight slimming effect with just a blusher, as I seldom contour these days.
For the highlighter, I used The Body Shop's Brush On Radiance, which has a lot of balls with different colours! Love it~
Try it out and let me know if it works for you! Till then~ <3
