Face of the Day: Korean Luminous Skin

Monday, January 17, 2011

I was looking through some pictures of Korean skincare campaigns and was struck how beautiful their skin was. The pictures were simple, not much focus on the make up, but the skin was beautiful!

I decided to attempt that luminous, glowing skin and minimal make up, and here's my take.

The products I used were:

The Face Shop Flower Shimmering Pearl Base in No. 01
Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in #4
Bare Minerals Foundation in Fairly Light (as concealer)
Revlon Illuminance Cream Shadows in Skinlights (second shade from the left, on the inner half of my eye, all the way up to the brow bone)
Rimmel 8Hr Mousse Bronzer in Medium Glow
Stila All Over Shimmer Liquid Illuminator (patted on with a sponge, all over face)
MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack
TheBalm Mary Lou-Manizer (on tops of cheekbones, bridge of nose, forehead, and brow bone)

For the lips, I used NYX Round Lipstick in Circe, and a little bit of NYX Round Lipstick in Fig on the inner part of the bottom lip, and blended out slightly.

Here are a couple of pictures with flash, just to round up the illustration of the look.

I hope I didn't spam you with too many of my pictures (oh, who am I kidding, this is a total face spam, sorry!)

I'm off to send my sister to the airport. After about 5 days of stuffing face and shopping, she's going home :( I'm so sad to see her go, but at least I'll be joining her in about 2 weeks! I hope everyone's having an awesome weekend!
