I’ve switched to “natural” make up for the past few months. Meaning thinner eyeliner , dewy skin and a good base.
Of course , you need to take care of your skin inorder to achieve a dewy skin look. So you have to cleanse , tone and moisturize your skin well before putting on any make up. Make-ups do dry up our skin a little so it is essential to moisturize your skin.
Usually , i wait for my skincare products to be fully absorbed before i apply my make up. Or else the powder or make up products will clump together and leave patches on my skin.
To double up my dewy look. I applied the Sulwhasoo Luminature Essential Finisher after the last step of my skincare. It is supposedly to be a day and night cream but my friend’s sister told me to use it as a base or primer instead to double up your bling bling dewy skin look. It also helps to keep your skin moist. Im using the sample pack because i have yet to use my Hera Magic Starter ( make up base for another dewy look ) . I just got the package last week.
Pin or use hair velcro to keep your hair clear from your face.
I apply it on my forehead, cheeks , chin and nose. Spread evenly.
Skin looks slightly radiant and dewy. I tried the Hera Magic Starter samples before and i prefer Hera than Sulwhasoo actually. Hera gives a more lasting dewy bling bling skin look. But if you have oily skin , it makes your face looks even more oily. I have normal skin so both works for me.
After applying the Sulwhasoo Finisher , i pat on my Hera UV Mist Cushion in N21. I use it as a concealer for my under eye as well as eyelid. And also , i pat the cushion on my lips to prepare for my lip make up.
Next , i work on my brows. I trim my brows once a week by myself. And i use the Etude House eyebrown automatic pencil to shade my brows. Because i have quite thick brows with arch , so i don’t shade too much. Or else i will look like La Bi Xiao Xing haha. I shade to match my hair colour.
Now im gonna start with my eyes. I highlight my eyes with 3CE Shimmer Stick. I love this Shimmer stick to the max. Because it is sooo convenient and gives a natural sheen.
I dont draw or blend it with my finger tips or brushes on my eyelids. I dabbed it on my eyelids. Because the radius of the shimmer stick is big enough , i dabbed it on my entire eyelid.
Here is how it looks when dabbed.
Slightly 3D looking eyelids with the shimmer stick’s highlighting effect. The best part is looks like you have nothing on your eyes.
Here’s how it looks like when i closed my eyes. Anyway , i had that line since my eyelids appeared after i gained ALOT of weight. I didnt go for any eyelid surgery and even if i want to , i dont have the time because i need to do photo shoots everyweek. OMG whenever my friends saw that line , they thought it was a surgery scar…..Don’t need to speculate.
After working on the base , i go onto the next step which is eye shadow. I used Aritaum’s Wannabe Pencil Shadow in Rosy. I like it alot because it is very convenient and easy to apply. It is 2 sided and comes with blending brush. Damn sad i cant get it in SG and im finishing mine soon ! 😦
Colour looks good and natural right ?
After the using the cream eyeshadow , i use MAKE MANIA ( Japanese brand ) eye shadow sponge to draw a thick line.
And then a thin layer of black eyeliner.
After the eyeliner , i work on the “aegyo sal” which means cute eye bags to create a more youthful look.
Im using K-Palette Tear Bag Eyeliner. But i just got one new from Etude House (Etude House Cute Eyes Maker) at a cheaper price because K-palette is too pricey !
Looks like i applied too much and looks too thick right ? Nope..im not done yet. I still have it blend it with concealer. I have not applied any concealer yet.
Im using Nature Republic Concealer. I blended with sponge.
The reason why concealer is the last step of my eye make up is because im using the powder eyeshadow from MAKE MANIA and some powder bits may drop onto my lower eye or cheeks when i draw on my eyelids. As you can see from the picture above, there are some “brown markings”.
Next , i applied my blusher. I dabbed my blusher on my cheek bones instead of brushing it for a more natural and lighter look. Im using 3CE Blusher in Valentine Pink. Instead of contouring my cheek bones with the blusher or bronzer , i just dabbed the pink blusher on my cheeks and blend it.
Lastly is my favourite part – LIPS.
Im using Tony Moly lipstick in Spring Orange. I dabbed the lipstick on my entire lip.
And i shade the cupid bow tip and sides of my lips with Nature Republic’s concealer stick.
And i blend it with my finger tips to create a slight ombre look.
I dabbed on more lipstick on the inner lips. I dab the lipsticks on my lips so that it looks stained and so there will not be any streaks or lines. Dab on some gloss if you want.
Lastly , this step is optional because sometimes I dont want my face to look overly highlighted so i may skip this step. If im using the Hera HD Foundation that day or CC cream , i may go on to this step.
Coutour my T-zone (upper eyebrow area and chin) and under eye area with 3CE Shimmer stick for a defined nose bridge and brighter looking eyes.
And chin too.
Blend with finger tips for a softer highlighting effect.
And viola ! I am done and it is time to take lots of selfies when you are out shopping !
This whole make-up took me only about 10 minutes to get it done . I used to take about 45 minutes but after sometime and practice, it just took me 10 minutes. After changing to this softer and natural look , it makes me looks younger. There is no right or wrong in putting on your make up so you can do adjustments according to your face shape , skin type , lip colour or skin colour.
