So back to the topic, have you ever watched those famous beauty guru makeup tutorial on youtube?? I watch it when I'm free because I always wanted to get those western kind of smoky eyes or heavy / sexy makeup. But the thing is , most of the asian like me..I means maybe 50% of us have hooded eyes. The space between my eyelid and eyebrows is way too little and small to put in tons of eyeshadow colors.
Are you facing the same problem too? Even on Pinterest or Instagram, there are always a lot of makeup tutorials and pictures that require a lot of eyelid and simply will not work on hooded eyes. The fact of the matter is girls with hooded eyes have to work more on the outsides of the eyes and have less space to blend due to the lower brows. No matter how hard I tried , I could never achieve that kind of 'sexy' heavy makeup look.
Guess the first few is too much for our hooded eyes :'(
I tried before and I look like a panda instead of having a sexy and smoky makeup look because we don't have much crease on our eyelid area. lol After all, I realise that each individual's eyeliner and shadow work differently and need to be adapted for your own unique eye shape. Am I right? Also, I always prefer some makeup that can enhance my face feature , eyes , not too much / or heavy and attractive. So for those who having the similar eye shape like mine then you can use this for your own, for those who have bigger eyes then learn the method and focus more on the review of the product ya.
So, are you ready for the Natural Chic Makeup Tutorial?? Let's get started!
- Pros: Not too thick or heavy , Easy spread around on my face , cover my pores and dark circles, milky and smooth texture with easy application by using brush / beauty sponge, bottle design-no need pour out the foundation just squeeze it on your hand, leave a powdery finish on my skin
- Cons: Good for combination and oily skin but if you have really dry skin please make sure to apply something hydrating and moisturising before applying this foundation.
So here's a tips for you :p Since I start travel my skin condition change from normal skin type to combination skin. So right now I'm having a super dry skin during the day I did this makeup, so I just go ahead & apply moisturising mask in the morning before put on any base / makeup.
Just squeeze like a 20 sen amount on your palm and you can either use a beauty blender sponge or a foundation brush to apply this foundation. I prefer to use applicator to apply due to the hygiene purpose and more quick + easy! So here's a left & right / before after comparison. Can you notice the diff on my skin color and the complexion ? How about the coverage ??
Left = After apply the foundation | Right = Before
To be honest, the coverage for me is quite good because it's really natural and not too heavy for me plus as you can see from the photo above , it can really cover my dark circle without any need for concealer. If you have serious dark circle problem then you might need to use a concealer on your face. For me I think it's pretty good!!
Now I have a good complexion skin like those Korean star in the drama! HAHAHAAH Quite nice~
So it's all about my base on my skin. Now let's move on to the eye makeup!
