My Favorite Korean Beauty Trends 2014

Ever since the Hallyu wave came crashing upon us, all eyes have been on the Korean beauty scene, with many fans wanting to emulate the looks of gorgeous celebrities. The BB Cream invasion came and took the world by storm. Korean TV show My Love From Another Star caused tubes of YSL’s Rouge Pur Couture No. 52 to fly off shelves. Such is the power of the Koreans and their influence.


In this blog post, I will be sharing my favorite Korean beauty trends of 2014.

Vivid Lip color


Cheon Song Yi is known for her natural makeup, highlighted by vivid, bright lip color. Wearing bright hues of red, pink or even orange are a self-expression of your confidence and beauty.


I’ll admit that I am not that adventurous when it comes to lip color. In fact, I seldom wear anything on my lips. But these damn Kdramas made me wanna try wearing them out more often. That’s me in Etude House’s Dear My Blooming Lips Talk in PK004.

Wearable Korean Fashion Trends 2014 Spring/Summer

Koreans are leading the fashion world with their creative, unique and trendy styles. I’m often envious at how they carry out each individual style so well when all I would resemble is a mismatched clown when I try to emulate them. There is just something about these Korean celebrities…. I guess, this is what you call the X factor.


This is G Dragon for Vogue Korea, everything about him in this photo screams PERSONALITY. Chunky statement necklace, bracelets and rings. Eye shadow on a guy and is that a black rose by his left ear? Seriously? Yet somehow he still looks so put together.

[Review] Etude House Almighty Foundation Precious Minerals Any Cushion SPF 50++/PA +++

First, it was the BB creams, then we had the CC creams and now, one of the latest Korean cosmetic fads are BB creams in a cushion compact. Innovative, much? So what results would I achieve from this BB cushion compact? Would it be much better than the usual BB cream in a tube? Read on to find out…

The shade I tried on is Honey Beige W24. It may look sticky on the cushion sponge but upon application, it turns matt pretty quick. I was also delighted by the coverage it provided. As you can see from the below comparison photo, it managed to conceal most of my blemishes rather well. It did a good job with my dark eye circles for a BB cream.

2013-10-05 12.44.03_resizedThe texture is light and application with the sponge provided is a breeze. No need to worry about foundation stains on your clothing because you do not need to use your bare fingers.

20131005_091914_resizedIt’s compact sized casing fits well in my palm, I could just bring it out for a quick touch-ups in a small purse. Another plus point, I guess 😉

The Almighty Foundation boasts of 6 multi-functions: Suncreen, Sebum Control Powder, Moisture Essence, Whitening Essence, Cooling and Foundation.

Loving the light, natural sheen it gives off like that of a CC cream. If you have just ran out of BB or CC cream, maybe you would like to stop by an Etude House store to check this out.
