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.
The Koreans have taken over the world by storm. Find out more about the latest trends and happenings in Korea at no other place than My Fat Pocket. Check these top 10 Korean-related articles from MFP which I had handpicked for you 😉
Plastic surgery is no longer a taboo in the modern era. With figures skyrocketing, countries such as Singapore, Thailand and Korea have been attracting both men and women in getting their aesthetic features fixed by plastic surgeons.
Korea has been named the top country with most plastic surgeries done and shopping with bandages is so common that the public will not bat their eyelids at.
K-pop craze has been on the rise and continues to heat up the fever in many countries. Both men and women who seek to fulfil their ideal look, more often than not, refer to Korean celebrities’ appearances. Here are some examples.
With most Korean having single eyelids, more and more celebrity-wannabes are flocking down to get single eyelids surgery. Yes you seen it right. SINGLE eyelids surgery. Rain is one good example of a single eyelid Korean celebrity and boy, does his single eyelids do look charming enough to enchant the ladies!
Taeyang, known to wow girls with his ‘bad boy’ look has given single eyelids another image other than the innocent boyish look. His thick eyebrows that are almost always frowning injects even more badass playboy look that would break the hearts of many willing girls.
A perfect wholesome face is that of actress Song Hye Kyo who needs no introduction. Her face shape may not be a sharped oval, but her broad forehead and wide cheeks allow all the facial features to be ideally positioned in.
On the whole look, Song Hye Kyo portrays an innocent child-like image with those captivating doe-eyes and porcelain fair skin.
It’s time to rejoice because Leaders Clinic, a highly popular Korean brand for beauty products is now available in Singapore. And you can get them from Serenity Allure, a new online store in town! They bring in Korean brands such as Leader Clinic & Bidanpo.
The lovely folks at Serenity Allure were nice enough to let me try out some of the products. I got this parcel from them last week:
So what’s in there?
From your left to right, you can see there’s the #1 – IPL Whitelux Ampoule Mask, #2 – Collagen Infusion Essential Mask & #3-Leaders Clinic Sulphur Blackhead Sunction Nose Pack.
Just a brief intro to Leaders Clinic – It’s a clinic range developed by top clinical experts in Korea. And they are the best-selling range of masks in Korea with many hot Korean celebrities as their users. These masks are different from other brands especially due to its ultra thin silk cellulose material; so that it fits on your face like a second skin. Allowing the mask’s essence to be effectively absorbed by your skin during the treatment.
There are 2 ranges in the masks series; The Ampoule & The Essential Masks. The Ampoule Masks contains the equivalent of one ampoule content. So it saves you the hassle of having to buy individual ampoule bottles and messing up if you have a broken glass ampoule bottle. While the Essential Masks contains highly concentrated essence.
They also carry special care products which target specific problems such as blackheads and sun care products as well.
