Korea is a fashion forward country and they are bringing their makeup trends to the world. The music band K-Pop is changing the way we look at makeup as their unusual makeup is seen on Tumblr. Korean magazines also portray glossy eyed models which will make any girl go crazy. There are several trends from eye packs to Ombre lips, here are some tips for you to try out:
Maintain dewy skin
The Koreans pride themselves on perfect skin with minimal skin flaws. The key to dewy skin is a great skin care regime to combat oiliness or dry, flaky skin. A glowing skin is always a well-rested skin that looks fresh for the day. Koreans invented the air cushion which is a sponge drenched with foundation and it comes in an easy, compact size powder case. You do not have to take out heavy duty, stippling brushes and liquid foundations when on the go as you can simply use the air cushion by dabbing it on the oily t-zone. Some brands like Etude House have great air cushion foundations for that Korean flawless look!
The Koreans do not price themselves on arched or thick brows, simply straight brows. You can use a brush with some brow gel to cover the brow ends from the arch down. Then apply a generous layer of concealer on top of the gel to camflouage the hairs. Blend well and draw out the rest of the eyebrow with a pencil. You can also opt to pluck your eyebrows, to keep them straight by growing them out first!
The calf eye look
If you have flipped through magazines, you might have noticed the baby deer eye look that most Koreans sport nowadays, check this best korea cosmetics online. You must simply take your eyeliner or liquid eyeliner of choice and draw it downwards, simply flicking it at the ends. Try dabbing on some glitter eyeshadow on the top for a great glittery look.
No Korean makeup trend is complete without some highlighter as highlighter brings your features forward. You must use them on the high points of your face like your nose, cupids bow, cheek bones for that sculpted face look. You can try out the Etude House, play etude mascara to complement the highlighter look with fluttery lashes.
Orange blush is key
Try sporting some orange blush for blushing cheeks! Blushes which are peach, coral or tangerine shades are great. Remember not to brush on too much as you might end up looking like a circus clown!
Most Koreans call it the gradient lip but it is the same as Ombre lip. The only difference is that they do not use bright colors on the lips but rather a lip stain to draw attention to the pout. You can start by applying some skin color concealer to the lips and then apply some blush directly to the center of the lips but always blend outwards. If you want a simple quick easy lip, opt for a red or pink stain, but dab the center with more product and then feather it out.
Try out these Korean makeup trends as they are great for teenagers or those who like a more subtle makeup look. Take care of your skin well before you embark on this trend as highlighters can make your skin look oilier than it used to.
