MAKEUP: KOREAN NUDE GLOWY MAKEUP&GRADIENT LIPS 2014

Natural makeup is such a huge thing these days and not everyone can go out with smokey eyes on daily basis especially in Malaysia.  So, I think many Malaysian find natural makeup one of their favourite looks.  With the extreme hot and humid weather, I find most of my makeup will melt down even before the end of the day.  Therefore, I do change a little of the normal makeup that the Korean do.

Basically, their usual consist of drawing the eyebrow straight with eyebrow mascara, cc cream, cc cushion, lip tint&peach blusher.  They do not use powder as it will take away the 'glow'.

As for me, this is how I normally do my makeup for a natural look.  Actually no one notices anything on the days I don't even makeup.  So, it is like makeup but no makeup.  Oh, gosh.  What am I talking about?

1.  Just fill in the spares very lightly to balance the eyebrow for a straight eyebrow.  No obvious changes to the eyebrow.Do not need to draw too thick or too dark.  Korean eyebrows look natural.

2.  Mix the bb&cc cream.  Apply the mixture on the face with a rubbery kind of puff.  Pat it on the face.
3.  The apply a little CC cream/CC cushion on the parts that you want to highlight such a cheek bone and forehead.

4.  Apply liptint using the gradient lip style. Use lip concealer after applying the lip tint.

No touch up. Does it look natural? Oh and sorry, I forgot mascara or fake eyelashes.

So, here is it =),  I don't apply a lot of bb cream unless you are using those water resistance or waterproof type or else it would all melt few hours later and mix with the oil and cause skin trouble later.  In the room itself is 31 Celsius.
For those working in aircon room-use cc cream or CC cushion since it contain more moisture than BB cream.



You do not have to use all the products I list here as it is just suggestion.

Here is the list of product use:
1. ZA Eyebrow pencil / clear eyebrow mascara /brow shadow. Go for your natural hair colour.
2. LC derma CC cream (get one that is water resistance)
3. Tony Molly BB cream (again get one that is water resistance)
4. light coral blusher or very light pink (MAC blusher- azalea in the afternoon) ( you could use none as well)
5. liptint in orange or pink (I used Elianto lip colour, lipstick mix with lipbalm)
6. Brown eyeliner (optional)

Tips&tricks
1. I mix the bb cream with cc cream for a healthy glow look and for enough coverage.  My ratio is about 2:1     .  If your skin do not have any skin problem to cover or have dry skin, then just use cc cream or cc    cushion.
2. Korean generally use cc cream that is one tone lighter than their natural skin colour for a fairer &brighter looking effect.  If you find that is just too 'white' &unnatural , then mix it with bb cream or foundation. You could skip it if you have flawless skin.
3. I use a rubbery kind of puff to just pat the mixture of cc&BB cream onto my face for even coverage.
4.  Highlight is done in a very subtle way with just using cc cream or cc cushion. (reason for the 'light' colour)
5. No bronzer or shimmery makeup products.
6. You could use clear mascara and only apply the fake eyelashes(cut them into few pieces) at outer corner of the eyes.



Ps: This year makeup focus more on the lips instead of on eyes.  So, go for orange or pink lips with gradient effects =)  .
