YAS! Give me some pumpkin spice pronto!

Hey! Fall is here, and with it, fall makeup tutorials! Yaaassssss!
Hundreds of Youtubers have flooded the internet with their fall makeup tutorials.

Oh…well…I did too.
And here it is! Β An easy eye tutorial using Korean products I have.

Mind you, it’s been super nice going from 10 views a day to 55 on my one video alone yesterday, but the struggle can be real. (and by struggle I mean making sure that I continue to do this for fun and…well…stop focusing on numbers. There are more important things in life.)

Without further ado….here it is! Enjoy! You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll…..okay, you probably won’t laugh or cry.

This was a short blog, but I hope you enjoy!
What else would you like to hear about or see? Β I’d love to hear from my readers and suscribers πŸ™‚

How to: The Korean Highschool Look

Its a fairly well known fact that Korean and American beauty standards are different, and back to school looks are no exception. Without further ado, here are ___ steps to getting that High School look from that Kdrama you love. πŸ˜‰

1) The face.
Put down your bronzer and blush! You won’t need them for this look. Just take a foundation that is your shade and blend it evenly across your face. I use a light pink base as well to add brightness. The key to this look is an even, pale face.

Optional: Take a light pale pink or peach/orange blush and, with a VERYΒ light hand, apply some to the apples of your cheeks, swiping back to your ears. It should be barely noticable when done.

2) The eyes
Koreans are not heavy with the makeup for daily activities. You want to take an eyeshadow, 1 to 2 shades darker than your skin tone, and blend it on your lid so it just peeks out over your crease.

3) Add some aegyo:
Take a light shimmery shadow 2 shades lighter than your skintone, and highlight the inner corners and “aegyosal”, the cute puffy skin right under your eye.

Optional: Take a contour color (I prefer a light taupe), and lightly shade under the aegyosal so it looks more pronounced.

4)The Puppy Eye
There are no cats here, just cute puppies! The puppy eye is a technique where you line your eyes as normal, but instead of winging it out, you drag it down just a little!

5) Gradient
Take a concealer and conceal the edges of your lips. Using a red tint or lipstick (you can choose pink or orange too…orangy red seems to be the most popular right now) Apply some to the very inner portion of your upper and lower lip. Then using your fingers or a brush, smudge it out so it fades into the concealer, creating a gradient!

Optional: top with a clear or sheer shimmery lip gloss so lips appear fuller!

Korean Empties? the good, the bad, the “god, what’s that smell?”

So I just decided to launch myself into the land of Youtube recently, and I can very certainly say that the launch into Youtube still has me rolling around shooting at the ground like a Halo Noob……

However, despite the terrible audio, my own nervousness talking to a camera (no dating robots for me!), and only having the beautiful thing we call a “smartphone” to film on…I’ve found the experience to actually be very…fun.

It’s a learning process for sure but, here’s my most recent video.
Enjoy! (or not πŸ˜› )
