In Winter, we believe in layering of clothes to keep ourselvers warm and according to weather change we would then have the option to add on or take off the layers. As with makeup, I too believe in layering. Our face is mostly uneven in tones so, to achieve the dewy look our skin have to look flawless and fresh before we start putting on the colours. Now if I only have 10mins for makeup, prepping the face and application of foundation will then take up 7mins!
I use different products on different parts of the face and when needed i would lightly apply a product over another but taking care to put on small amounts each time, Lightly padding each product over the face. Well, we all know korean stars have flawless skin, but is it really? One thing I'm sure though, all korean stars do spend alot of time prepping the face, layering products, all to make the face appear Flawless!
I'm not a makeup guru but through years of trial and error on screen I' had learnt and designed a makeup that can help me achieve "the" look in ten minutes. So here goes!
Apply a generous amount of Vaseline over the lips, patting it lightly over the lip to help in absorbing the goodness. This helps to prep the lips later on for full and flawless lips.
Lightly dab and pad a colour corrector/bb cream over the face. Always remenber not to rub and push but always lightly dabbing and padding the product over the whole face. This will ensure the product do not run and is fully absorbed by the skin.
Next its the primer. I usually choose a pink primer as it gives the face a needed fresh and radiant look. Application of primer also helps the concealer and the foundation colour stays fresh through the day. I usually apply it under the eyes, like drawing an inverted triangle, extend it below the eye bag. Also to my T-zone, on places I need the highlights.
Can you see the highlighted areas? Now we are ready to apply the foundation!
Dub and pad the bb cushion over areas that need more coverage. Like the eye areas, T zone and of course the sides of the nose. On areas that need extra concealing, this is when we mix the concealer with the bb cushion and pad it over.
When all is done, use a big powder brush to run the pressed powder over the entire face. I' prefer the brush over the cushion puff as i like the little shine and dewy effect vs the matt powdered look. For those that prefers the latter, use the cushion puff to lightly pad over the T zone and under eyes.
I would choose to use mascara over eye liner for a cleaner look. It's almost like the eyes looked more deep set and intense even without an eye liner. Choose a good mascara that can help in volume and lengthening the lashes.
Now its adding on the colours for that radiant look! Choose colours that are bright and cherry. Lightly pad the colours over the lips, using your fingers to spread the colour. For this look, I use alot of finger work as i prefer the natural look, not too define.
Lastly, I set my makeup using a sunscreen mist. At times I rotate with a hydrating mist depending on the condition of my skin. Give your skin time to absorb the goodness and set the makeup.
Next, let's change and out we go for an outdoor shoot!
For my everyday look, basically these are all I need. For touchups, my bb cushion, eyelash curler, lip gloss and most importantly, my suncreen mist. All I need, is in this ready to go makeup kit!
Hope my sharing helps and don't forget to drink lots of water and protect yourself from the sun rays:)
