美容 101 - 「韓流」美容

    I used two air cushions to achieve today's makeup base.

    我認為自己 對韓國美容產品,是一個後知後覺者,幸好我最終趕上了。 K-POP和韓劇已走到前所未有的高峰,許多韓國明星(韓流)已經得到世界級的認同,廣為人知。世界各地的粉絲們都在模仿“韓國”妝容,來一個白哲水潤的肌膚。我看過好幾套韓劇,不得不說,劇中女演員都擁有不思議的皮膚。


    現在,我不肯定是否試圖模仿任何人或任何事,但作為一個美容產品白的粉絲,就由美容開始吧。我很高興能夠嘗試一些他們極受追捧的美容產品。雖然有些韓國美容產品在北美有售,尤其是在亞洲購物中心。但不是全部產品可以買得到,不過,我覺得如果你在網上購買,這就較便宜了。 


    所 以,我走訪溫哥華後,我購買了幾款韓國的美容產品,並懷著愉快的心情地使用了這些產品。我很喜歡產品的包裝。他們十分可愛!首先嘗試“氣墊粉底”,這是一種全新的方式在臉上塗抹粉底,它沒有顯得過於凝固或乾燥。我喜歡這個結果,我一併探索許多其他產品,也有如此效果。您是否也嘗試 過任何韓國的美容產品?你有最喜歡的?留言給我,讓我知道。

    These are the products I used today.  I absolutely love the Laniege Snow BB Soothing Cushion with SPF 50+.  it's very moist and not drying on my skin.  I started with clean skin, then I applied sunscreen.  I followed this with Laniege Skin Veil Base EX which is primer.  It's a very light green that blends well into the skin and hides red undertones.  


    Then I applied a layer of Etude House's Any Cushion also in green.  It goes on fairly white which is perfect for my red undertoned skin.  I even applied it lightly to my eye area instead of using a concealer.  I find it works just as well because it's so white and is actually more moisturising.  Then I applied the Laniege Air-cushion.  I am using Natural Sand Beige.  It's a darker colour which is perfect.  It blends well with the white/green base that I applied with Etude House Any Cushion. Voila!  Dewy skin is accomplished.  If I'm at all concerned about shiny skin (which I'm not really), I have a Canmake  powder on standby.  (That's actually a Japanese brand).  I also use a cream blusher Apieu Creamy Dome Blusher on the apple of my cheeks in keeping with the dewy look.


    For my eyes, I tried out the Apieu 2-step Eye Gradation Maker.  One Taupe and one Mauve colour on either end of the marker.  It's very easy to apply and you can just smudge with your fingertips.  It comes out more brown than purple.  But I still like it and actually think it looks quite natural.


    I also came across this face spray HADANOMY Aquaplacenta mist which I used after all the makeup has been applied and a few times afterwards whenever I remember.  Speaking of Korean beauty products, BB cream is a must.  I have been using SNAIL Nutrition BB Cream by SKIN79 and TonyMoly Intense Care Snail Hydro-gel Mask.


    I love this Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask.  It goes on like a mask and washes off bubbly and acts like a cleanser leaving your skin feeling squeaky clean.


    My toner of choice lately has been this IOPE Bio Essence Intensive Conditioning.  You only need a small amount on a cotton pad.  I follow this with a very generous layer of Laneige Water Sleeping Pack EX.  It does feel very wet and dries sticky.  I apply a generous amount and leave it on overnight as I sleep and then wash it off in the morning.  My skin does feel hydrated overnight.  I try to use the water pack two or three times a week.


    I love this TonyMoly Peach Handcream.  The packaging is adorable and the hand cream is very moisturizing.


    This cute bunny is actually a face mist - Pocket Bunny Moist Mist.  The packaging is adorable.  It's quite small and can fit into a handbag.  The other good thing is that the bottle is actually reusable and you can fill it with your toner or facial mist of your choice! There is another green one for oily skin.
