People in South Korea are looking for ways to prevent that the coronavirus outbreak damages their reputation for style. From tutorials on how to wear makeup with a face mask, to hats that incorporate face shield, K-Pop Idols are giving tips for wearing makeup in a way that looks amazing under a mask.
For K-Pop sensation SUZY, the main problem of wearing masks is that they hide your face; they don’t allow you to show off your charm. The good news is that there are ways you can look good under a mask.
K-Pop idols such as G-Dragon, BTS, and Girls’ Generation are making the face mask a new fashion signature item.
One of the main features of wearing a face mask is that they embrace anonymity pushing the boundaries of your style. For Korean fashion designer Park Youn-hee it is crucial to wear a mask with confidence and to try bold colours and different looks.
Face masks can leave your face feeling dry and irritated, so it is essential to prioritize the use of products made with tea tree, AHA, BHA, and PHA to keep your face moisturised.
A great option is SOME BY MI 30 Days Miracle Cream. This multipurpose cream, with its 4-Cica Care formula, will shield your skin from further irritation.
Focus On Your Eyes
While wearing a face mask, K-Pop Idols frame their face by focusing on their eyes. You need to use eyeliner, brow lines, and mascara.
The key is to stand out by using simple makeup techniques.
Step # 1 Brown Eyeliner
You should draw a line with a brown eyeliner pencil along your upper lashes for a more natural look. A great option is Deep Brown from MACQUEEN Waterproof Pen Eyeliner.
Then apply an earth-toned brown shadow along the crease of your eyelid. Finally, brush a paler brown shadow on your lid. My favorite is Brownie Pink from MISSHA Triple Shadow that comes in complementary shades to create a distinctive look.
Step # 2 Curl Your Eyelashes and Apply Mascara
K-Makeup artists recommend curling lashes before makeup, opening the eyes, and seeing-eye shape better. You have to curl your eyelashes with the best tools possible, such as SHU UEMURA Eyelash Curler,which has an improved silicone pad and patented hinge for long-lasting, genuine-looking curls.
If your lashes are short, use a thickening mascara, such as, ETUDE HOUSE Lash Perm Curl Fix Mascara, not a lengthening one, which will weigh them down. Apply one or two coats of mascara, but if you want to achieve greater volume and length, you can add three or five coats.
Step # 3 Create An Amazing Brow
To create the most realistic-looking hairs, you need to use flicking motions with an eyebrow pencil such as ETUDE HOUSE Drawing Eye Brow New, in the direction your hair grows.
Make sure to create a natural arch. Hold a brow pencil against your nostril and line it up diagonally with the center of your eye.
Use A Waterproof Foundation
To keep your foundation from smudging throughout the day, you need to use a waterproof foundation or seal it with a makeup-setting product such as INNISFREE No Sebum Blur Primer, to help your foundation last for hours.
The best option to keep yourself from reapplying your foundation throughout the day is using the ETUDE HOUSE Double Lasting Foundation. This long-lasting foundation stays in place for up to 24 hours and is ideal to use it under your face mask.
Apply A Light Sunscreen
Don’t forget to apply a light sunscreen like SKIN & LAB Fre-C Sun Lotion, to shield your skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays. This sun lotion includes Centella extracts as well as vitamin C that help brighten your skin. It is lightweight and has no sticky-after effects for a hassle-free experience.
Finally, always wash your face once you remove your mask for the day. Use a cleanser such, ROHTO MENTHOLATUM Hada Labo Gokujyun Oil Cleansing, that works to remove the impurities from your face effectively. It is a k beauty product free from artificial colourings, fragrances, alcohols, and mineral oils. You will feel your skin light and refreshing.
