K-beauty is pretty much taking over the world and we just can’t get enough of it. With it’s natural and organic ingredients, Korean makeup products actually contain ingredients that are genuinely good for your skin. Especially, when it comes to adorable packaging, Korea’s on another level.
Below is a list of some of my 5 favorite K-beauty makeup products you must try!
If you’ve never tried a BB cushion, this is the one you need to try. But first, what exactly is a BB cushion? A BB cushion is a fusion of skincare and makeup poured into a small lightweight compact. IOPE Air Cushion contains strengthening hydrating abilities that help revive the skin’s moisture and glow. The Air Cushion is available in four shades with no.13 being the lightest and no.23 being the darkest. The Cushion contains Air Prism Water that helps achieve the dewy, fresh, radiant skin. It also comes with a 3D sponge that helps deliver a moisturized and well-coverage looking skin. If you’re looking for a long-lasting and medium coverage BB cushion that is not too greasy, this one's for you!
The new makeup product that everyone seems to be raving about is a cushion blusher. The IOPE cushion blusher carries 30% of mineral water making the cheeks appear to have a “moist glow.” Available in only two shades, IOPE’s Air Cushion contains SPF 30/PA++. This Air Cushion is best applied after applying a base foundation or BB cream. For best results, gently pat the sponge into the cushion and apply a small amount on your cheekbones evenly.
Are you struggling with straight and short lashes that don’t stay up? Especially, in this hot and humid weather? If you are, I definitely recommend trying Etude Dr. Mascara Fixer. Not only does it provide volume but also provides a natural curl, length, and waterproof fix. To apply this transparent mascara is fairly easy. You can apply the gel mascara either before or after your mascara but for effective results and a stronger lash lift, prime your lashes with the gel mascara before putting on actual mascara. Etude Dr. Mascara Fixer works like a charm and lasts throughout the entire day.
Bonus: It contains black sesame and black bean extract that helps your lashes looking strong and healthy.
This simple eyebrow pencil sold at Etude has an easy two-step process to make your brows on fleek. This Eye Brow Duo is very convenient as it has a pencil on one side and a powder on the other. To create voluminous eyebrows, simply outline your brows with the pencil then fill in the eyebrows with the powder. The Etude Drawing Eye Brow Duo comes in 4 natural shades to give you that perfect eyebrow. Anyone looking for a natural eyebrow pencil, I definitely recommend this Eye Brow Duo by Etude!
Available in #01 Brown Note and #02 Love Rosy, the palette has a combination of matte, glitter, shimmer, and neutral colors. One of Nature Republic’s best seller, this eyeshadow palette is perfect for a day or night look. It not only glides on smoothly but it is also well-pigmented. These vivid colors will make you feel and look good!
