Annyeong hasaeyo, makeup enthusiasts!

I'm back with another makeup pictorial..

Let's go!

First, cleanse your face thoroughly.
Then apply your moisturizing makeup primer if you have dry skin, or matte makeup primer if you have oily/combination skin.

*Note: Skip your skincare regime when you're about putting any makeup on whenever you're in Indonesia/tropical places. The humidity and the heat will meltdown your makeup if you pile up your moisturizers.

Using MakeOver Camouflage Cream palette

Put on your correctors, people..
It neutralize any discoloration area before you blend in your foundation on your face.
(I just figure out this technique in last 4 months, I'm still learning about corrective complexion makeup!)

Green: reddish blemishes/rosacea.
Orange: eyebags/heavy scars/'aging' hollows.
Lilac/purple: beamer for enhancing the prominent area of the face, it works wonder on the 'aging' hollows and not-too-heavy freckles too to achieve a flawless canvas.

Foundation is mixing of Illamasqua light liquid , MUFE HD, and MakeOver Ultra Matte foundation.
Concealer: MakeOver camouflage palette, MUFE HD, and Illamasqua undereyes concealer.

Next step is to blend your foundation with those correctors on your face using a stippling brush with buffing technique, not stippling.
Then concealing imperfections if needed, like heavy scars/acnes/dark spots or circles, don't forget the corner of your nose, and lips, so it won't appear reddish/blacky on photo.

using BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector

The important thing of ulzzang is the healthy skin, oily-like face.
Apply liquid shimmer/highlighter on the foreheads, nose bridge, C-section(browbone to upper cheeks), cupidbows of the lips, and the chin.  I'm here using foundation brush to pat that liquid shimmer on my face. I think by patting face, not only gives you even spread of product, but also boost blood circulation on your face! Talk about naturally radiance of the face!

Why highlighting your face? Isn't it more logical if fair skinned people to contour more than highlighting?
I don't recommend too much contouring in ulzzang look. Besides, contouring consume much more time in blending it to look neatly gradual!  Instead, highlighter pop out your prominent area of the face on photo, or whenever your face hitting lightings. 
People of South Korea are actually enhancing their not-so prominent area of the face by grafting fats under the skin (last temporarily!). Not crazy, but, KREZZEEEH..!
I'd do anything to get liposuction on my facial fats! LOL

Brow: Shu Uemura hard formula pencil no.9
eyeshadow: Shu Uemura 'MonShu' wine palette
eyeliner: Maybelline eye pencil in brown

Next is your eye makeup.
Stick to the natural 'no makeup' look. Don't be triggered by those ridiculous South Korean celebs eye makeup. They put on eye makeup like that to perform, to act for your entertainment, and to sell their sponsor's product also! LOL
Ulzzang makeup is known for that volumed eyebrows, earthtone eyeshadows, and brown/black eyeliner.  Suit your eye makeup with your eye shape, or your desire.

Be playful on eyelashes. You can put on natural ones, or decorative ones..

it's Edward Bess Compact Rouge for lips & cheeks in Love Affair

As for the lips, please stick to classic simple makeup.
You can tint your lips, just apply your lipbalm, or if you gonna put lipstick on, choose 'stained lips' colour.  What's a stained lips?  It's the colour when we were baby. 

Dab some shimmering eyeshadow on your cupid bows, and then you're DONE!


fakelashes: D'Eyeko Natural Volume no. 110

I hope you enjoy this pictorial as much as I was putting makeup on this way..
Ulzzang style makeup really make my face looks more healthier, and natural.
For all this time, simple makeup tutorial that I read around Indonesian beauty blogging, has not really inspire me to follow them, because it's kinda not suitable for my face, and eyes shape.
