Hi gorgeous,

I know that I am late in posting this but better late than never right?  So I am here is the latest 2015 Korean trends.


Skin type

It is the glowing skin, poreless and fair skin here. The younger the skin looks, the better. Bronzer or darker kind of shadow is just to give the V shape to the face. I don’t think Asians like tan skin. It is always fair here.

Also the makeup is usually the “no makeup look”. So, most of the makeup usually look really natural. Besides, most prefer to invest their time into skincare than buying the latest makeup products.

DIY skincare products

I think there are already emerging brands that offer the opportunities to DIY their own skincare. However, I am not sure about the choice because from what I see, choice is still limited to few ingredients and skin type. Most of the ingredients are using essential oil which not everyone are suited to. However, some will opt to DIY their own because it doesn’t contain any preservatives or more ‘natural’.

The only thing I don’t suggest one to DIY their own will probably be sunscreen and serum. Those need to be made by professional in a secure laboratory to ensure their potency.

DIY cosmetics /recycle

Banila Co. VV Bouncing Cushion (SPF50+ PA+++)

Currently there are also bloggers that shows how to recycle makeup products into something else. I commonly saw the eye shadows and lipstick recycle into blusher, cc blusher cushion and also shadow sticks. I think the common one is to recycle your eyeshadow into nail polish.

I like the ability to make your own bb/cc cushion. You can actually mix up endless of products but since it is currently new and we have lacked of chemistry knowledge, then we are not sure of what will happen to the product on our skin in long run. One thing for sure, it might be cheaper than buying the readymade bb/cc cushion since we can just use our foundation or bb creams and turn them into cc cushion.

Again DIY products usually don’t last long as those made in the sterile environment of the laboratories. Still you can make use of those products that you do not use into something that you can use right?

Skincare products

Secret Key Starting Treatment Essence

I wouldn’t say that Korean brands has all their skincare in ‘organic’ form but most of the brands try to make their skincare products safe from harmful ingredients. So, do read the ingredients up if you are particular about free from paraben, synthetic ingredients or dye.  Fermented products are still in trend and more natural products will be be included in their skincare products.

Famous skincare products and cosmetics that are currently in trend for 2015.

Most of the products became famous after appearing in the Beauty shows

Berrisom Animal masks
