Facial Exercises to Slim Your Face
Ok. I know what some of you are thinking “What the hell are ‘facial exercises’?”. Facial exercises are a good way to naturally life and contour your face for the pretty v-line everyone wants. These also help to tighten loose skin, lift droopy eyes, and tone the forehead and cheeks. Now on to the daily workout.
7 Habits That Changed My Skin
We all have bad habits. Admit it. Snacking, procrastinating, some people bite their fingernails, my brother picks at scabs, my niece still sucks her thumb (ok. She is three, I’ll give her a pass). Either way, none of these are the best habits to have, but some bad habits can actually hurt your skin. So I’m going to show you some habits that I used to have and how I changed those habits to improve my skin
How to Properly Use A Cushion (Plus Pact Recommendations)
Hi. It’s me. And I’m here to say, if you don’t use cushions, you’re doing it wrong. Today is the day, I will convert you to cushion-ism… is that a thing? I don’t think so. Cushions have other sun protection and skin care benefits. Cushions are also super convenient and are easy to carry for touch ups later on in the day. They are the easiest foundations to blend, but if you do it wrong, you’ll look super cakey or give you uneven coverage. Now there are more types of cushions other than foundations, but foundations are the most common. This post refers to all cushions. Let’s talk cushions.
Face Masks: Skincare the Korean Way
Yay!!! My favorite! My skin savers! Face masks. Clay, sheet, peel off, sleeping, eye, etc. all masks are great and I highly recommend doing one at least every two days. I do it every other day and maybe a few days in a row if I’m feeling it. Recently, being in quarantine has been leaving me with a lot of time where I am not outside hanging out, so I practiced self care to another level. So, whenever I’m in my room, bored, or watching tv in the family room, I have a mask or a pack on. Sometimes I’m feeling fancy, so I do multiple masks. Of course, this isn’t necessary, it’s just something I like to do for myself. It’s like an at home spa day and it makes me feel 10 times better once I’m done. Let’s talk masks. In the cover picture, you will see one pack, two sheet masks, one mud mask, one sleeping mask, and a lip mask. There aren’t the only ones I use, they are just the ones I’ve been using during quarantine since they are easily accessible at convenience stores like CVS and Walgreens.
The Gods of All Serums: Skincare the Korean Way
Hi~~~ I know I wasn't active the past two days ㅠㅠ I had a bit of an issue regarding my vision, so I couldn't look at screens. To make up for those days, tonight I am posting three posts: serums, face masks, and how to properly use a cushion. I've noticed that a lot of people don't actually use serums and I think that's very very not good. You're missing a really important part of what should be your routine. So here I am, to recommend two of my favorite serums. The Gods of All Serums.
Highschool Carry Ons: Skincare the Korean Way
I’m back. So if you aren’t a follower of my Twitter (the main one, not my personal), yes, I am a high school student. With high school, comes the summer where the school’s AC doesn’t work, staying after school at the library, studying late nights at academy, having to go to sports practice, etc. If you go through any Korean’s bag, you will definitely find a makeup bag, and high schoolers are no exception. We carry around a lot of stuff. When we are studying all day long it’s not a pretty sight… but we can make that sight look a little bit less… shitty. Here are some of the products that I carry around with me. 가시지요~~~ I have talked about most of these product before, so I’ll just do a quick run down of each. First, the OnDay - Lipping Gold Flower Lip Glow. For school, I used the Red Flower, which moves out a bright pink-ish color. There are pure 24K gold flakes and the flower for aesthetics and the color changes according to your body temperature. It has a peachy flavor and the color is long lasting. The Laneige Two Tone Tint Lip Bar comes in 8 shades and my favorite is No. 4 Fruits Candy Bar. It’s a lip balm and a tint in one with ingredients that can be found in the LANEIGE - LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask Great for the two tone gradient look that I like the look of, and if you want a full color all over, just blend the inner tint onto the rest of your lip. I’ve only had to touch up once or twice, but that was after 8 hours of wearing it. The next lip product I need to use before school (I don’t carry this around with me) is Laneige’s Lip Sleeping Mask. It’s strawberry flavored and if you use it in the morning, your lips won’t be chapped all day long. The last of the products I’ve already talked about is obviously a sunscreen. The AHC - Natural Perfecting Double Shield Sun Stick SPF50+ PA++++ with a green, color correcting tint. Of course you should always replace it every 2 hours but that’s no problem with this once because it’s a company stick which doesn’t leave that nasty shiny and sticky look and feel. Alright. Now onto the two products I’ve never talked about the SAEM - Iceland Hydrating Eye Stick for puffy eyes First off, the packaging is super cute. I mean. THE LITTLE BEAR!!! Ok. All cute things aside, no like I can do that easily, but I will try. This stick has a cool, hydrating, and soothing effect when you apply some under your eye. Wakes you up right away and has a nice scent. Works even better if you but it in the refrigerator before you grab it and toss it in your bag. This next product, you should also leave in the fridge to cool before you pack it away. It’s the ST. Ives - Hydrating Face Mist Orange Admittedly, not my favorite, I usually use another face mist, but recent circumstances caused me to have to buy this one as a temporary replacement. It is hydrating and has a fresh citrus scent, so I am not disappointed. It’s a cheaper alternative. There are some items in my makeup bag that I didn’t put on this list, but once I get the products I use on a daily basis, I will make a post on what I carry around with me daily. These are just products I’ve been using since the quarantine pandemic begun. Hopefully this post gave you more accessible alternative to create a makeup bag for not only high school but your day in general.

💖 6 Ways: You’re MORE ATTRACTIVE than you might think
Do you really know how to put on your makeup? Seriously, most girls are just having fun with their cosmetic stuff, and I used to be one of them lol. Having learned a lot from both Youtube tutorials and makeup magazines, I realize that there're some mistakes that over 90% of beginners will make. Check out the list below: Use a dry beauty blender Use a dry beauty blender that can make it hard to blend your foundation and sinks in all your cosmetic products, which is not cost-worthy lol. A better and money-saving way to do that is to use a wet one while applying. By doing so, you can create a flawless base makeup effortlessly. Do your makeup in a bathroom I bet most of you like to do your makeup in your bathroom with your favorite songs on, right? However, the artificial light in the bathroom is often not satisfying and can make your makeup go sideways, especially when it comes to applying your highlighters or blushes. Therefore, it's suggested to do your makeup by the window side with the natural light. Rub your foundation & concealer Hey, don't be so rude to your face lady! Instead of rubbing the foundation or concealer, you need to tap them gently into your face. As for applying your foundation, start with the middle of your cheek, then go in circles. Also, don't forget to go a little bit lower on your neck and your ears for a natural-looking finish. For concealers, you'd also stick to the gentle tabbing and apply less every time. Apply thick layers of color correctors I know lots of YouTubers are obsessed with wearing lots of color correctors in their makeup tutorials, and I guess it's mainly for fun, but the fact is that not everyone needs the color correctors unless you have serious discoloration! The basic rule for base makeup is "LESS IS MORE"! Applying unneeded or too thick layers of color correctors will only make it harder to apply foundation, which just makes things tricky! Moreover, apply your color correctors with brushes instead of fingers because these correctors are often very pigmented and you don't want to get too much of them on your fingertips at one time. Draw lines on the entire brow No kidding! Tracing heavy lines on your entire brow shape usually ends up with unnatural and cartoon-ish brows. The quick fixing way is to draw a harsh stroke, blend with your finger, use an eyebrow brush, and use small strokes on the bottom of your brow and brush upwards. The soft strokes can create a fuller look without going overboard, and a brush makes it easier to blend. Apply lipstick to naked lips Okay, I know how tempting it is to do a few swipes after a meal or your coffee break, but that's a big mistake if you want your lipstick color last long and evenly without smearing drying out your lips. Only prep your lips with a lip primer, a lip plumper or even a lightweight face moisturizer will make a huge difference! By adding a little bit of moisture, your lipstick is more likely to stay longer and maintain a smooth, plump and even finish. I've learned a lot from Ali Andreea, the makeup influencer on Youtube, and I highly recommend anyone who wants to learn more about makeup to subscribe to her channel! What are your makeup tips? Eager to see your fantastic ideas! Love you lots xxx!
☀️7 Popular Makeup Myths Debunked! Swipe Right to Know
I'm obsessed with makeup and have been watching LOTS of beauty gurus' videos on Youtube providing numerous makeup tips and tricks. Having tried a lot, I found the majority of them are no more but eye-catching myths! 😭 To avoid you from wasting your time on these unhelpful tips, I've listed six common makeup misconceptions that I bet you have heard a million times below: Myth: Choose a foundation that matches your wrist Fact: Your skin color differs everywhere. Instead of matching your foundation to the wrist, look at your jawline. This is because your skin color differs everywhere, and your body shade normally can be darker than your face. Therefore, if the foundation color matches your jawline, then congrats! You get your best shade! Myth: Lip plumper can treat thin lips Fact: I know how crazy people are about increasing their lips now, but lip plumpers are not the key. Lip plumpers contain ingredients like hot pepper, cinnamon, menthol and caffeine, irritating your lips to create a swollen effect, but this effect can merely last for a short period of time. The only solution for thinner lips is lip augmentation with hyaluronic acid fillers, so don't expect lip plumpers can work as a permanent lip plumping treatment. Myth: Eyeshadow can't match your eye color Fact: While applying eyeshadow colors contrasting to your eye color can enhance your eyes, but matching hues can also create a gorgeous look. For instance, I have blue eyes, but I like to wear JEFFREE STAR COSMETICS - Blue Blood Eyeshadow Palette, which enhances my natural eye color and makes my overall makeup look more harmonic. Myth: Concealer goes before the foundation Fact: Fancy having a natural-looking makeup look? Then I recommend you to apply your foundation first, followed by a lightweight concealer such as NARS - Radiant Creamy Concealer to hide the skin imperfections. Otherwise, you just end up smearing your makeup because of frequent rubbing. Myth: Throw away the mascara if it dries Fact: The longevity for mascara is usually 8 months. No kidding, just 8 months! After that, it will expire, and you should throw it right away, but if your mascara dries before that, you can fix it by adding a drop or two of baby oils to your mascara tube. Myth: Setting sprays for dry skin while setting powders for oily skin Fact: Although setting sprays are mostly hydrating and setting powders usually leave a matte finish, it doesn't mean that people with dry skin can only use hydrating facial sprays. There're hydrating setting powders to help, for example, BECCA - Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powderr, made with 50% water and glycerin, moisturizes your skin and leaving a dewy finish. Myth: Concealer should be lighter than foundation Fact: You should always carefully match your concealer to your skin tone, just like you do with your foundation. As for under-eye concealers, it's suggested to go for a concealer that's one to two shades lighter than your skin as you want to cover your dark circles. However, when it comes to your face, lighter concealers make your imperfections stand out especially if your skin has a pink or olive tone, go for a concealer that'll match up. Hope my sharings can stop people from being fooled by these makeup "tips" or "rules"! Which makeup "tip" that you found useless? Debunk it below!

TIPS TO LOOK DECENT IN PHOTO ID’s✨
If you clicked on this, you’re probably like me and care what you look like in your id photos. You have your license with you for quite a bit so it makes sense to want it to look good. Here are some tips I used to take my photo that left results that I’m not embarrassed to show others when needed. LESS IS NOT MORE You always hear how less is more and that’s usually the case when you’re not being photographed. In pictures, lots of the makeup can be lost through the lens if it’s not exaggerated. Think false lashes and over lined lips to stand out. STICK TO NEUTRALS Today is not the day to try out bright colors and glitters. (Choose shades that compliment your natural skin tone. It is important to match your foundation and avoid using black shadow/ liners.) With bright colors you run the risk of becoming washed out with a color that does not suit you and glitter can create unwanted flashback mistakes, which takes me to my next point. BE PICKY WITH YOUR SETTING POWDER Nobody likes taking a picture and seeing that washed out white-cast all over their face from setting powder. To avoid this, simply stick to fine translucent powders such as the laura mercier - Translucent Loose Setting Powder . Powders that advertise ‘HD’ tend to create a flashback when photographed. CONTOUR/HIGHLIGHTING IS YOUR NEW BFF Remember those crazy contouring looks from 5 years ago? With photographing ID’s, those skills may come in handy. A photo is 2D so we want to bring more to the photo with these illusions. Choose a highlighter shade up to 2-3 shades lighter than your skin tone and highlight the tops of the cheekbones, down the bridge of the nose, inner corner of the eye, and brow bone. With contouring, chose a neutral shade up to 3-4 shade darker than your skin tone and apply to the hollows of your cheeks, temples of the forehead, down the side of the nose, and finally the jawline. I recommend NARS - Radiant Creamy Concealer for highlighting and KKW BEAUTY - Crème Contour & Highlight Sets for contouring.
