Absolute babe Bella Hadid swears by it, but this K-beauty trend isn’t one for everyday. This technique focuses on giving you a flawless matte finish to your makeup, which will last all day.
Apply your base like usual, and finish with a thick layer of finishing powder. Before you apply makeup to your eyes or eyebrows, slowly drop your face into a bowl of cool water, making sure you wet everywhere you’ve applied the powder. After you’ve wet your whole face, carefully pat your skin dry with a cloth, leaving you with a flawless finish.
An odd beauty trend, but maybe a refreshing option during this heatwave.
Golden Phase Skin
You know the saying “time of the month”? Well, it’s about to get a whole new meaning. Apparently, one week of the month your skin will appear dewier, brighter and generally better due to the body’s regenerating properties. Think of it like the golden hour, but for your skin.
K-beauty products aim to make your skin look like fresh erryday. Look out for the ones that are “regenerating”, as these will be able to pep you up just as much as a chocolate bar can when you’re going through PMT the week before…
Seven Step Hair Routine
A ten step skincare routine? Please, this is old news. If you needed an excuse to indulge in some new hair products, then this Korean beauty trend has got your back.
Much like they apply logic to the OTT skincare routine, K-beauty aims to care for your hair from the skin out. Starting with looking after the scalp, every level of this haircare routine will work to promote hair health and cleanse.
1. Scalp exfoliation
Help to cleanse your skin and hair from product build up with a scalp exfoliator a few times a week. We love this one by Christophe Robin that features sea salt and smells divine.
