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.

Best Night Creams For Your Skin Type

Published

on

Walk down the skincare aisle, and you’ll see approximately one-trillion night creams. All with various confusing claims and promises. To help you choose the perfect night cream for your skin type, here is the lineup of the greatest, tried-and-true night creams for your skin type. Whether you’ve got oily skin, dry and acne prone skin, sensitive skin, etc.

For Oily, Acne Prone Skin

Acne-prone skin is inherently irritated and dry, even if it looks oily. So make sure not to skip out on a night cream. Instead, layer on this lightweight acne-fighting formula. You can look for a night cream with a mix of tea tree oil (a natural antibacterial), witch hazel (a gentle astringent), and salicylic and lactic acids (pore clearers and skin smoothers). All the ingredients help mattify and treat skin without drying it out.

For Normal To Oily Skin

The gel-cream moisturizer will give skin just the right amount of hydration. It will last you through the night without making your face feel like a grease pit. You can look for the calming formula filled with all-natural ingredients. Like Japanese licorice extract, which reduces redness and irritation. Along with lingonberry seed oil, a fatty acid that helps repair your skin barrier and even out oil production.

For Dry, Sensitive Skin

Try to look for a night cream which consists of soothing Greek yogurt, moisturizing jojoba oil, and barrier-repairing hyaluronic acid. The rich night cream will soften rough patches and calms sensitive skin from the moment you slather it on.

For Dry, Acne Prone Skin

Please look for a sweet-smelling balm, formulated with a hefty dose of Manuka honey. The ingredient is a natural antibacterial that works on two levels. First to calm and hydrate inflamed skin. Second, to kill acne-causing bacteria. Layer it on at night and let the mix of honey and apricot oil soften skin and fight breakouts will you sleep.

4 Best Lip Stains For Those Who Hate Lipsticks

Published

on

Here’s the thing about lipsticks: They’re kind of high maintenance. Between the meticulous applications, the touch-ups, and that moment when your lips devolve into a dry, prune-like mess, lipsticks can get annoying. But for those moments, we have lip stains. With oil-stain hybrids, balm-like stains, and semi-matte moisturizing stains, you can find the perfect shade and formula for your lips, without having to settle.

Semi-Matte Stain

Unlike most stains, which are, quite literally, a stain on your lips. This stain has a dose of coconut oil in it to give it a hydrating, balm-like finish. Just twist the bottom, wait for the pigment to fill the squishy tip, and swipe it over your lips. After a few minutes, it’ll dry down to a semi-matte finish that lasts through one coffee

Lipstick-Like Stain

Stains are great and all, but if you’re a person who loves more of an opaque, moisturizing finish, try this creamy formula, which is basically a super-lightweight liquid lipstick that wears off into an even, pigmented stain. Apply it in the morning, and then forget about it for the rest of the day—your lips will look bright for hours.

Water Lip Stain

This is, pure and simple, a straight-up stain. It’s a thin, water-like liquid (it’s 77 percent water, in fact) mixed with a range of four pigments to give your lips a wash of long-lasting color. Brush it on over your bare lips, then layer with a balm for more moisture.

Matte Cream Stain

This click-pen stain swipes on like a milky cream but dries down to a completely matte, opaque pigment. It’s basically like a matte lipstick, but without all of the stuff you hate about matte lipsticks (dryness, flakiness, hard-to-apply-ness). Thanks to its hydrating base.

3 Make Up Tips For Oily Skin

Published

on

How to make your make up last longer while you have an oily skin can po]sed for a challenge. From constantly dealing with midday shine to finding the right makeup formula that actually stays put. This is why it’s imperative to choose the right product depending on your skin’s specific needs. If not, you deal with the ramifications of an unflattering oily shine throughout the day and formula separation, which can accentuate fine lines and pores.

Skipping Foundation For Mid-Day Touch Up

A common mistake people make when applying makeup onto oily skin relates to the midday touchup process. Often, they apply either a pigmented pressed powder or foundation. This constant layering just leads to an unnatural, cakey and often muddy appearance to the skin. Instead, try a translucent oil-absorbing powder or blotting paper to soak up excess oil. By using these products specifically designed for oil absorption, foundation and color will not be disturbed during the touchup process.

Try Exfoliating At Least Three Times A Week

Using the right skin care products prior to makeup application is crucial! Oily skin clients should be on the lookout for lightweight and oil-controlling formulas and ingredients that will purify and mattify without stripping or irritating the skin. Some top choices are tea tree, salicylic acid, clays (such as kaolin or bentonite) and sulfur. Another expert tip: exfoliating three to five times per week will aid in your makeup longevity and appearance.

Use Foundation Primer

 Priming is an often overlooked step but has a great impact on the look and wear of makeup. Choose an oil-free and water-based p]rimer, to help extend the wear of foundation for anyone prone to an oily shine. An eyeshadow primer is also important. A quality eyeshadow primer is key for a long-lasting eye look. Choose lightweight, silky formula for crease-free, smudge-proof staying power while intensifying the eyeshadow color.
