3 Ways To Achieve Korean Dewy Look

Published

on

Youthfully radiant and luminous in all the right places. More than just a beauty trend, the Korean dewy look has been around for years in Korea. Achieving the right balance between glow and overly shiny is nearly an art form that takes a little polishing to perfect. Originally called mul-gwang (literally, “water-light”), the signature Korean look first made its fresh-faced debut at the hands of two distinguished Korean makeup artists, Son Dae Sik, and Park Tae Yun. We’ve narrowed it down to three key beauty tricks that will have you beaming like your favorite Korean celebrity.

Face Mist All Day

The most essential way to achieve the Korean dewy look is by maintaining hydrated skin. To maximize your skin’s moisture throughout the day, start and end your skincare and makeup routine with a face mist. For extra dry skin, look for a face mist featuring hyaluronic acid which binds incredibly well to moisture. Spray the mist post-cleanse or after applying your toners and essences, creating an intensely hydrated base for your makeup. For a serious glow, finish off your foundation with a final spritz to lock in all the moisture.

Sheet Mask

For many Korean women, their weekly companion is the sheet masks. Much like face mists, sheet masks provide a sweeping array of skin-enhancing perks by targeting your skin’s specific needs, giving you an immediate lift and undeniable glow to your skin. Apply the sheet mask after your toner, essence, and serum. Afterward, pat in the extra essence and apply an oil on top to seal in the hydration.

Finished Off Make Up With Customized Highlight

Elevate your finished makeup look by adding a customized highlight to the high points of your face. First, apply your foundation or BB or CC cream as usual. Then blend a bit of your foundation or tinted cream with a rich moisturizer, illuminating essence, or facial oil in a 1:1 ratio. Moisturizers like shea butter or coconut oil are great options. Apply the mixture to the top of cheekbones, the forehead, down the middle of the nose, on the Cupid’s bow, and the chin. Finish the look by dusting translucent powder onto the T-zone, sides of your nose, and around the perimeter of your face. This will subtly soften the look while keeping the emphasis on where it really matters.

Published

on

When we’re getting ready for work in the morning. Hence, our minds are usually racing with thoughts about upcoming deadlines, meetings, and projects. And in the meantime, we’re tasked with picking out the right ensemble to get the job done with confidence. Therefore, no matter how much you love fashion or how awesome your wardrobe is. Hence, there are always going to be days. And even weeklong stretches, when you just stand in front of your closet with a blank look. Thus, wondering what you should wear.

Fortunately, this is not going to be one of those weeks. Hence, since the internet is constantly brimming with a fresh batch of work outfit ideas. Therefore, thanks to the constant cycle of fashion weeks. And there’s no better place to look for style inspiration. Hence, then on the streets of London, Milan, New York, and Paris in between shows.

With this in mind, we rounded up our favorite office-approved looks to take note of. Rest assured, each outfit formula hits the style trifecta: Aside from being physically comfortable, you’ll be taken seriously professionally and feel confident. To make your mornings a little easier (and your office a lot more stylish), peruse these work outfit ideas.

The Casual Business Office Look

It’s the easiest, and it basically translates to jeans office wear. The TIP is to always pair casual work outfits with heels, a very smart/feminine top (think silky blouse, men-shirts, structured tops), a blazer and a professional bag. Have fun with accessories and even shoes and bags depending on your job.

The Classic Look

Probably the most common and easiest way to dress for the office and nail the wear to work situation, this work outfit is perfect for all jobs. But it’s also the most likely to get you looking boring. Hence, unless you remember this ONE TIP: always wear a statement piece, or add a fun item to your look (shoes, bag, jewellery, watch, lips, nails. It’s all in the details.).

Glamorous at the Office

This office outfit is for all those sexy women who also run the world. But prefer to do it in glam office attire: bright lips, sky-high heels and office outfits that can go from 9 am to late dinner cocktails. The TIP: fabulous heels, expensive perfumes, rich fabrics, pencil skirts, and silky blouses, long trousers, statement golden necklaces, brand watches and massive bags or clutches. These ladies are not afraid to flaunt it all.

Careless Chic

A look for those who’ve got slightly more penchant for fashion and ladies office wear, but look like they don’t give a crap, yet, to the trained eye they’re street-style-worthy. The TIP: clash different style items, play with shapes (slouchy versus fitted), with looks (feminine and masculine). Heels look best with this style, yet brogues or oxfords do the trick as well.

17+ Fashion Trends In Spring 2020

Published

on

Let’s take our minds off puffer jackets and snow boots for a second to talk spring. Hence, I know it’s hard to fathom breezy dresses and sandals. Thus, when most of us are still bundled up from head to toe. But, we’re choosing to look on the brighter (warmer?) side.

So fast forward a few months and what do you get? The best spring/summer trends of 2020. It helps to know what will be popular. So, you can prep your shopping list in advance or shop it now. Therefore, we provided “get the look” options too. Hence, before everyone else starts wearing the items.

Topless Times

Before you cover your eyes and cringe at the idea of literally wearing a bra as a top, hear us out. While, yes, we saw many designers such as Loewe and Olivier Theyskens display bras that looked more like contents of a negligee drawer and less like tops, we saw the opposite as well thanks to satin bra tops at Givenchy and kitschy co-ord sets at Maryam Nassir Zadeh. Style yours under a blazer or as a top all of its own. Either way, this is one trend we’re daring you to dabble in this season.

Sultry Slips

We know, we know—slip dresses are nothing new, and by now you probably own at least three in various colors, but this spring, we’re seeing a more literal take of the chemise work its way into everyday looks. We’re talking all the lace and colors that read a bit more boudoir (i.e., soft pinks, whites, and nudes) and a lot less street style. But that’s what we love about this fresh take on the familiar dress for spring.

The 3-Piece

The addition of a tailored waistcoat is the spring 2020 update we were looking for amid the recurring suiting trend. We also saw these tailored vests make a strong name for themselves as an individual trend (so be sure to keep an eye out for them), but it was the three-piece suit that stood out the most.

Business Casual

If you’re more of a “limbs out” kind of gal, then this next take on the suit is for you. Remember Bermuda shorts? Well, they are back and were spotted all over the runways showcasing a more casual take on the business-ready trend. Similar to vests, we saw longer shorts of all kinds appear on the runway as a trend on their own, further proving the importance of the shorts movement this spring. From Tibi’s cool-girl take to Givenchy’s office- and night out–ready ensemble, this is one major trend to watch this season.
