Enhance your fresh-faced beauty with a soft veil of radiant colours with the LANEIGE Ideal Blush Duo collection: Review, Swatches & Makeup Looks

When it comes to beauty, the Koreans always strike first. If you think applying blush is easy, think again. The Koreans have now reinvented the steps to achieving the perfect flush with the Blush Layering trend – basically working on a combination of sheer colours to achieve natural blush, contouring and highlighting effects.

And yes, if you’ve been following social media, you’ll definitely not be a stranger to the LANEIGE Ideal Blush Duo collection that’s all over your feed. The collection, with natural and luminous hues, is designed perfectly for the Blush Layering trend, with two colours in each of the six unique palettes.

I quite like the shade selection in each palette, because each palette is carefully designed for you to achieve a certain look, whether it be a pure and innocent one, a sun-kissed glowy one or even a well-contoured one. The combination of two ideal colours into one palette, coupled with the blendability of the formula, lets you conveniently create a complexion you desire in the shortest amount of time.

Restore your skin’s natural balance with LANEIGE Fresh Calming Line: Review

Lately it’s been looking all rosy on my skincare shelf in my boyfriend’s room. As I’m always staying over at his place on weekends, I have been leaving bits and pieces of me (my clothes, skincare, makeup) at his place and the one set of skincare I rely on during the weekends is the LANEIGE Fresh Calming Line.

LANEIGE has always been one of my trusted Asian brands when it comes to skincare and makeup, from the Water Sleeping Mask to the BB Cushion Pore Control and recently, the new line of foundation and bases. I was so stoked when they decided to drop a whole line of skincare dedicated to restoring your skin’s natural balance with four very simple steps.

Formulated with natural litchi extract and deep-sea water, the LANEIGE Fresh Calming Line seeks to empower your skin with the fundamentals – to soothe and moisturise. Let’s go back to the basics with uncomplicated steps to regain a healthy, rosy complexion. It’s time to unleash the sparkling beauty in you!
