So, Do I Look More Korean Now?

Koreans can think of anything and make a trend out of nothing. And it’s all because they are so influential in setting trends. So much so that now, this korean puffy eyes look which many Korean actresses and singers are spotting have caused normal folks to resort to plastic surgery. Yes, Koreans (and everyone whose just as crazy as them) are undergoing the knife just to have these fatty lower lids permanently there. Why? Because you look feminine, innocent and girly.

I have puffy eyes and now they are making it into a trend so isn’t it great? Let’s hope someday the Koreans decide that muffin tops and love handles are the new sexy and I would be one hot oh-la-la babe.

So now Korean-wannabes can achieve the Aegyo Sal korean eye bags look with Etude House’s Dear Girls Cute Eyes Maker. It’s an eye makeup wand that comes with 2 different colors of shimmery pigmented powder on each end. Step 1 is a light brown shade while Step 2 is a pearlized pink shade.

And it’s pretty simple to use if you follow the instruction sheet shown above. Create a shadow using the Step 1 and fill up the area above using Step 2 to make it pop and look puffy. Resulting in CUTE EYES or so the product states.

My dark eye rings were screaming out loud as I applied the Cute Eyes Maker. I’m not sure if I am doing it right or not. I did use tons of concealer before applying. Just to make sure I wasn’t accentuating my dark eye rings any further.

Anyway, this was fun to play around with. I already feel more Korean with my now very obvious puffy eyes @_@

A little intro about this product first…

Always Nuddy CC Cream blends into your skin layer as its capsule unravels. 
Colour encapsulated spheres brings about natural skin tone colour. As the colour capsule inside of the white hydrated base bursts, natural blemish effect can be expected.
Hydrated skin with 20 skin moisture ingredients, even skin tone by great persistency and adherence. As layered over, glowing and hydrated skin tone can be accomplished.

If you are wondering how to get that GLOW and RADIANCE which Kpop stars always spot. Then this is the secret to their beautiful makeup!

I’m very new to this whole concept and this is my first CC Cream. I was surprised that it didn’t come in a skin tone shade. I know some other CC Creams do… Anyway, the Nuddy CC Cream is to be used together with a BB Cream for optimal results.

As shown by this Korean blogger, you can see how there is coverage from the BB cream and then radiance due to the CC cream base that was applied first.

I tried to do some shots like the one above but my cam was too lousy to capture the difference. And hence, I can only do a demo on my inner wrist. The texture of the CC Cream is surprisingly light, kind of like a mousse.

As you can see from my above photo, after applying and spreading the CC Cream evenly. The skin has a pearlish glow to it, I guess this is what they meant by “Colour encapsulated spheres brings about natural skin tone colour” 

However, when used alone, it doesn’t provide much coverage. That’s when you need to add on the BB Cream. Then voila! You get perfect complexion that’s flawless and radiant.

It Takes Makeup To Look Natural

Calvin Klein once said “The best is to look natural, but it takes make-up to look natural.”
While Bobbi Brown was quoted “I believe that all women are pretty without makeup-
but with the right makeup can be pretty powerful.”

So yes, beauty is not just all about makeup but being comfortable in your own skin sans all makeup can also be beautiful. Feeling beautiful and comfortable with yourself translate to self-confidence too.

Unlike some beauty enthusiasts that have complicated and long steps for their beauty regimes. I’m pretty much the opposite and is more inclined to a fuss free regime. Blame it on my laziness so I usually abide to the 3 step regime.

1) Cleanse, 2) Tone & 3) Moisturize

But to be honest, sometimes mine gets downsized into a 2 step regime – Cleanse & Moisturize. I have combination skin type, normal on most areas (sometimes it gets dry, it depends on the weather) and oily on the T-zone area.

I admit that I need makeup to feel good about myself. However, if I had crystal clear skin that was flawless, I would love to be able to go out without having to put on any makeup. How to achieve looking good with makeup is aesthetics and skincare, you can find out more on beauty news and tips at My Fat Pocket and Aesthetic Hub.

Smile bags, Tear bags, Eye bags…

If you naturally have these bags under your eyes, most commonly known as smile bags aka 笑袋. Then you shouldn’t try to conceal them because it has been trending in Japan since last year. And women all over Asia are trying to emulate this makeup look as well. I guess I’m in luck, because I have them naturally.

It’s amazing what these girls do to achieve such a look which is said to make your eyes appear bigger. *stares into mirror, does it?* They use highlighters, eyeliners, contouring powder and now, eyelid tape?!?! Seriously??

Saw this picture being shown on Facebook…

So what’s your take on this? I find the AFTER photo with the eye bags actually makes her look older. How can anyone find this cute. While I’m busy trying to photoshop my eye bags away from most of my photos, there these women actually wish that they have them.

I personally do not recommend doing this too often as you know, some people get double eyelids from wearing tape for years. Can you imagine permanent folds under your eyes if you do this too often. @_@

[Review] – Etude House Pink Box Precious Mineral BBdation

Have you heard of the new revolutionary BB cream applicator? Presenting the Real Hand Touch by Etude House for applying the Precious Minerals BBdation. Now you too can achieve flawless skin like the Korean celebrities with this automated makeup artist touch tool.

I must say, this is one handy intelligent must have tool in your makeup pouch. It runs on 2 AAA batteries and vibrates so that the sponge dabs the BBdation all over like a makeup artist’s skillful hands.

The sponge applicator can be easily replaced with a new one once it’s worn out.

So how do we go about using this amazing makeup tool? It’s really very simple. Just dab the Precious Mineral BBdation on areas of the face like your forehead, cheeks and chin with your fingers.

(I have eye makeup on and concealer on my under eyes though I know my eye bags are still very obvious, try looking after a newborn…. I apologize for the blurry photo, blame it on shaky hands.)

Next, dispense some Precious Mineral BBdation onto the sponge head and then turn on the Real Hand Touch applicator to activate the vibration motion as you apply it all over your face.

I was pretty pleased with the Precious Mineral BBdation as the texture was light and with the Real Hand Touch applicator, it was evenly applied all over my face. After that, just dust some loose powder lightly all over once you are done. The BBdation seems to blend in well with my skin tone despite my initial worries that it might be too light for my tanned skin color.

Now to complete the look, I had applied Dear My Blooming Cheek blusher in PK001 and Dear Darling Tint in 01. You can check out my previous blog entries on these 2 products.

The Precious Mineral Bbdation as the name suggests, is a combination of the moist texture of the BB cream with the excellent coverage of foundation for translucent, mineral makeup. It contains Aloe Vera extract & Coconut oil which provides for antioxidant moisture care. Pearl powder gives you a non-clogging finish as the powder coverage melts and is absorbed into the skin for that flawless look.

I just realized that I’d forgotten to line my brows but do pardon me, I was rushing this review out while my dear baby was asleep and he wakes up for hourly feeds. So do just bear with me… 😉

Laneige Makeup & Skincare Session

Weeks back, I was invited to the Laneige’s Makeup Atelier Session. However, I didn’t want to remove my eye makeup. Yes, so I didn’t quite fully managed to play around with their makeup, considering I’m quite a klutz with eye shadow too.

To be honest, I was more intrigued by their skincare products. So just to share abit more… I managed to try other products in the water bank & basic care range. Truth be told, I’m a fan of their essence and I’ve bought both water bank essence and hydra solution essence before. Love them to bits, very light-weight in texture and yet hydrating enough for the skin!
