A Must-Try Korean Beauty Brand✨✨
Innisfree is one of my favorite Korean beauty brands. I love Innisfree wine jelly sleeping pack a lot, but this product does not sell in Australia. Then I tried this brand’s green tea seed cream and serum. These products use the ingredients from green tea extracts. innisfree - Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serumis a moisturizing serum that provides the skin with protection and nutrition. The special formula can hydrate the skin. I have a combination of oily, dry and sensitive skin. After washing my face, I often feel my face dry and itchy. Because my face is oily, I don’t really like to use serum, but this one is different, it does not feel oily or sticky and can be absorbed by the skin easily. The lightweight texture offers a hydrated and fresh feel to the skin, prevent moisture loss and improve the skin. This product not only release the skin dryness but also reduce the irritation and redness. I massage this into the skin, and it makes skin prepared for makeup that foundation and concealer do not crease on my face. innisfree - Intensive Hydrating Cream with Green Tea Seedalso uses the exacts from green tea. It provides skin with refreshing hydration and antioxidants. I have used this cream for years and love it! It keeps my skin soft and hydrated.

The amazing moisturizing cream leave skin soft and nice, give the face a healthy-looking glow, and it is good at calming the redness from my acne and help to release the irritation and itchy. The price is low when compared with my other cream. Overall it is a great Korean brand that has a large variety of products to choose from. love this brand!

Perfect DUPE？😱I accidentally bought The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5%
Lancôme Advanced Génifique Yeux Eye Cream is one of my favourite Lancôme product. I have dry and sensitive skin and there are fine lines around my eyes. I love this product because it includes anti-aging ingredient and combines concentrated probiotic extracts in the cream, helps the skin around eyes to feel reinforced. The eye cream smells elegant and is very moisturizing. It is thick and easy to blend with fingers, stored in a black glass bottle. It softens the irritation and dryness, reduces the redness and flakes around my eyes. The anti-aging ingredients reduce my fine lines, wrinkles and the dark circle. Although it is a little expensive, the product worth the price. I can see the visible result. However, I found a cheaper eye serum, which can also reduce my fine lines and puffiness: The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG30ml. The eye scrum is very sticky, contains a high 5% concentration of caffeine, supplemented with an ingredient EGCG from green tea leaves. The serum is stored in an opaque glass bottle with a white dropper. The product costs only a few bucks but it can reduce dark circle and puffiness. I found my eye contour is much brightening after using this. I see there is an improvement in my dark circles. It also is very hydrating to my eye area. It is smoothing and reinforced my eye contour and does not irritate my sensitive skin. I bought this product twice and it replaced mt eye cream because of the cheaper price. It tightens and firms the skin without dryness. It does quite a good job in reducing the inflammation. I recommend this product to people who have puffiness, dark circle and would like to tighten their eye contour skin with low budgets. The serum can help with these problems. The best part is that only a little bit goes a long way, while the price is amazing!

A multitasking Lip stain that creates a cohesive and harmonious overall look
Lip stain can be used on both lips and cheeks. The multitasking product can save money and minimize the number of products that I have to buy. it is very convenient to bring lip/cheek stain when travelling to avoid heavy packaging. It makes the makeup routine easier. The same colour also creates a cohesive and harmonious overall look. These kinds of products can also minimize the time in choosing the right colour, especially in the morning when I need to be ready quickly. One of my favourite lip stains isYVES SAINT LAURENT - Vinyl Cream Lip Stain #416. It is a high coverage long-wear liquid lip stain. It has the pigmentation of a lipstick and the softness of the cream as well as the shine of the lip gloss. The lip stain is very creamy and even feel like a lip balm. The colour can remain after a few hours talking, eating and drinking. I can simply reapply the colour. The smell is natural, unlike other lip stains that have a very strong scent. The colour is very beautiful. Applying a thin layer of this colour on the lip, the lips have a nice warm taupe shade. when applying a thick layer of this product, it has a beautiful and fabulous chill red. It can also be used on cheeks. The tiny diamond shade of the wand applicator makes the colour pigment beautifully and naturally. I take it with me everywhere because of its multi-functions. Actually, sometime when I am lazy, I even use it as an eye shadow. I have a few tips to apply this colour on the face. It is important to get skin prepared before, such as apply a light moisturizer around the cheek, blend the primer and foundation before applying the lip stain. I usually use fingertips to blend the colour on the cheeks and ensure to blend it quickly. This product allows makeup routine as easy as possible.

My secret to slim down my face with highlighter and bronzer
I have a round face. when I would like to change the shape of my face, I have to contour the face with highlight and bronzer. The first step is to primer my face with a moisturizer to make the skin smooth and easy to apply. Then I blend the foundation across my face with a wet beauty blender. Once applied to the foundation, my face looks a little flat. I use NYX - Color Correcting Concealer Palette’s yellow colour as a highlight. I start to contour my face from the underneath of my cheekbones, and go right down the nose, draw a ‘V’ on the chin and apply on the top of the lip, on the forehead and under my eyes. The next step is to use a bronzer to enhance the shape of my face. My favourite is MAC - Next To Nothing Bronzing Powder / Electric Wonder#Sun-Soaked Strip. This one can create an illusion of a sunlight hit on the face. I love the packaging of the product, which looks like gold pink marble. It is a lightweight power that provides long-lasting wear. The texture is soft and nice, feels like silk. it creates a warm, medium-dark and natural undertone and it is more pigmented than other bronzers. I feel it is a little bit more red-base colour than other bronzers. it is natural because when you people exposure to sunlight they probably have red undertones. This one does not look dirty or heavy, it looks just like a natural bronze. And it was a case where a little went a long way. For consistency, I wear it for more than eight hours without fading. The last step is to set my face with setting powder and then mist my face with MAC’s setting spray to achieve a long-lasting markup.

my fav drugstore all-in-one palette
It is always difficult to choose which makeup products to take with me on the following trip. This is the reason why I am so fond of all-in-one makeup palettes. These palettes are designed to collect the basics in one kit. All-in-one palettes are the best for travel because they have everything I need and stop overpacking and keep the suitcase light. I have a few palettes. One of my favorites is Contour Intuitive Palette NYX Professional Makeup CIP Warm Zone CIP02. It is a warm tone palette. It provides opportunities to create different looks. Plastic packaging makes it easy to carry on. It features six eyeshadows, two pearl highlights and one blush. each of the colours in this palette is useful and beautiful. Normally I use all of them. The contour palette has everything I need to fix my face. A little of the product goes a long way, and colours stay all day and work well with any type of makeup. The blush of this palette is a really beautiful peach colour. It is very pigmented so need to tap off the brush before applying it. For the eyeshadows, it has six colors so I can create both warm and natural look. it has shimmers, metallics and mattes. The matters are smooth and pigmented. For the shimmers, I like the golden colour so much for its elegance. The highlighters are stunning, smooth and easy to apply to create a very intensive glow on my cheekbones. However, the packaging material is plastic that can break easily. the packaging can be improved. Overall, I feel it is a pretty beautiful drugstore palette that worth the price. I highly recommend this palette to someone who wants to find a warm tone or a beginner who wants to experiment and practice.

My secret to achieving a flawless base
Achieving a flawless and perfect base is the most important process in making-up. I have oily t-zone while the rest of my face is very dry and sensitive. Sometimes there is patchiness around my t-zone, crack and dry patches appear on the rest of the skin. Under this circumstance, I have a secret way to achieve a perfect base that can last all night long. Keeping good skin condition is the best way to create a perfect base. So, good skin preparation is the key to great makeup. Usually, I use the PETER THOMAS ROTH’s Hungarian Thermal Water Mineral-Rich Moisturizer to get my skin prepped and primed. This is the most hydrated and moisturized moisturizer I have ever used. my face becomes so smooth and gentle. When applying foundation on my face, I can feel my face like silk and there is no crack at all. The foundation can better adhere to the face and can last longer. When applying foundation, I usually avoid putting a thick layer of the foundation. It is difficult to blend thick foundation and then there will have cracks on the skin. In order to smoothly blend the foundation, I wet the beauty blender. The damp surface brings more streak-free blending. Because of the dry skin, I also choose a hydrating foundation. I recommend Laura Mercier’s foundation. The brand is famous for its ability to create a ‘flawless face’. The lightweight long-lasting liquid foundation with a matter finish is oil-free. It is creamy and wears beautifully throughout the day. Sometimes I use Laura Mercier’s concealer to cover my imperfections. I apply a layer of a litter concealer over the skin as needed and blend.The last process is to fix all the work firmly on my face. I apply Translucent loose Setting Powder all over my face. It can control the oil around my t-zone and allow longer-lasting of my makeup.
