Hi ladies,

last week I was invited by Laneige Indonesia to meet one of their professional makeup artist from Korea.

-*-



The stage is prepared at Seibu and Mal Taman Anggrek. I went to Seibu since Nadia (Pr of Laneige) has booked one session for my makeover there. I’m eager to see the Korean art of makeup ^__^

-*-

The stage look grandeur isn’t it ?! And everyone can see what’s going on there, heeeheee. I hope everyone who came that day and look may learn some tips and valuable lessons from the makeup artist.

-*-

Soon the makeover start and here is my before look, pale and without color -___-

I don’t look well without makeup haha 😀 Without further ado let’s start the makeover, shall we?!

-*-


1. Romeo spray a freshener to my skin
According to him that day my skin already appears clean, so he just start with the freshener and not cleansing.
2. A makeup base to boost the radiance and glow
It help to lifted up the whole look. Used with a brush.
3. BB Cushion is added
This is one of Romeo’s favorite item from Laneige, may be used after the base or anytime for a touch up. A quick sun protection, coverage and base for the skin. An all in one solution. Please do see the video below for more.
4. Compact Powder is used
Just around the face and not on the t zone. According to Romeo it’s a technique so the face appears glowing.
5. Start shaping the brow start from the right one
Korean loves their eyebrow thick, so the face appears smaller.

-*-

This is my before after look half along the way. Clearly seen a shaped eyebrow could make all the differences in one’s look.

-*-

1. Continues with the left eye brow.
2. Eyeshadow
Romeo said it is not needed to use the whole colors in a palette, a single color is enough to add some dimension to the lid.
3. Eyeliner
Fill in the lines on top of the eyes (inside the upper lids) and below as well. No need to draw extra line, just follow the natural shape of one’s eye.
4. Use an eyelash curler and mascara
Start from the middle part all the way to the ends of the lashes without touching the roots so the lashes wont get plucked.
Then carefully apply the mascara one by one (can be seen on the video as well) where he carefully brush each lashes.

The whole process is done slowly by Romeo making sure there’s perfection involved.

-*-

Above image is my right lashes done and the left one untouched, see the differences with below image where both are done. Like using a fake lashes ^_______^

-*-


My eyes look bigger, bolder, and sharper.

-*-

Follow with
1. Blush on
2. Use it on the apple of the cheeks only without going overboard from the temple. Smile when using blush on ya.
3. Lipstick is added

No need using lip liner or other stuff, just lipstick with a brush.
4. After look, ta da!

-*-

This is my makeover inspired by Song Hye Kyo. It’s focused on the flawless skin and natural look. Do I look like a Korean now?

Enjoy the video below for a more detailed info and step by step guide!

Thank you Laneige Indonesia and Romeo.

Minna-san, konnichiwa.

After a series period of time trying this adorable mousse from Shu Uemura, it will be jotted down here. Mousse is not a strange item in the Shu’s family, in fact since 1990, the first mousse is made. By keep innovating and recreating POREraser is presented. A UV Under Base Mousse that not just protecting the skin with SPF 35 PA+++, but it perfecting the pore so the look become finer and less problems.

Problem? Such as oiliness.

-*-




The luscious mousse I have is in beige, please read the previous post regarding the event of PORErase (HERE). Once pump it is enough for the whole face and neck. I like to apply some until decollete as well when using a low cut dress/shirt.

It is better to shake the bottle for a while before pressing the pump.

-*-



Usually, I’ll put the foam on the back of my hand. The mousse may be used with a brush or a wet sponge. This time, I’ll use my fingers as tools.

Put the mousse on a cleaned, toned, serumed and moisturized skin.

-*-


The oh-so-familiar smell of the mousse, like a milky powdery foam. There’s a faint sound of the tiny bubbles popping, burrssssssstttttttttttt.

-*-

Before all the small bubbles pop out, hurry, blend them well on the skin so the texture and formula remains airy light, like how it meant to be made.

-*-



After the mousse is distributed well, wait for a while for them to sets in. Normal liquid base will take around 3-5 minutes (and some also up to 10 minutes), UV Under Base Mousse is up to 1 minute only.

-*-



In 5 minutes, I notice a visible difference as the skin looks more luminous, and the skin tone looks even-er, it helps retain the oiliness without being dull as well. I can see the skin remains ‘charming’. Of course since it is a base, foundation may be added afterwards for a more desired effect. But just using the UV Under Base Mouse POREraser the skin already looks ‘clean-er’.

-*-




This is me using PORErase alone after 1 hour, without adding foundation, powder, or even loose powder. Apparently the mousse will keep adjusting and blending into the skin. Giving me an even complexion with a natural healthy look, far less visible pores, radiant without being greasy nor oily.

Definitely one of my favorite items for being so unique in texture (mousse), so light (as if using nothing). easy to apply, and gives great result (finer pores and even complexion). I just wish it comes in higher SPF =^__^=
