Have you started switching your K-beauty products in your skin care routine before spring arrives? Along with making skin care swaps to lighter formulations, don’t forget to do the same in your makeup routine. Spring calls for makeup that is lighter and brighter! As you transition from winter to spring, think of lighter formulations and brilliant, vivid colors of K-beauty products in your makeup routine.
Here we are with five easy tips and suggestions to change your makeup routine using K-beauty products for the upcoming spring season.
Time to ditch the dark eye shadows for something brighter and bolder
Spring is the right time to play around with bold colors. Never be afraid to mix it up a bit. While you might think pastel is the best and most convenient, be daring! Try neon colors instead. Neon eye makeup is one of the huge trends for 2020. And you don’t have to worry about it throughout the day – it looks great for both daytime and night makeup looks.
You can create bold and dramatic eye makeup looks with 3CE One Color Shadow. The matte eyeshadow adheres effortlessly to the eyelid and offers a vivid pop of color. You can get a deep eye look with the highly-pigmented formula, which gives a true-color payoff. It’s is a long-lasting formulation with sebum-absorbing ingredients, so you don’t have to worry about smudgy makeup.
Swap out the heavy foundations for Korean BB creams
As the temperature rises, your skin won’t need heavy foundation coverage. Just like a lighter texture moisturizer, your skin needs an alternative Korean beauty product as a base. You can use BB creams as they are perfect for springtime. They offer light coverage and give your skin a dewy look. Many BB creams are formulated with sunscreen (SPF), so you will get additional sun protection.
Dear Klairs Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream SPF40 PA++ is one such BB cream that is light enough for spring. It adds a bit of dewiness to your complexion and evens out the skin tone. You can finish the base makeup with the Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream that Korean women love. The BB cream is also hydrating, and the formulation is safe to use for all skin types, even sensitive and acne-prone.
Breakaway from matte lipsticks
Lip tints are always a better option to use in spring and summer times. They are just as pigmented as matte lipsticks, but they are much more lightweight and ideal for weather that is just warming up. This is one k-beauty product that is a perfect makeup companion not only for spring but summer also.
Etude House Dear Darling Water Gel Tint (Ice Cream Summer Edition) is a water gel tint that fully expresses sweet lips with deep, vibrant ice cream colors. It gives your lips a long-lasting moisturization with adhesive moisture, which helps in maintaining a vivid color. It has tons of minerals and vitamins from Soap Berry extract that help make your lips look moist and lively.
Try a look with floating eyeliner
Neon eye makeup isn’t the only new thing to try in spring this year. The floating eyeliner trend is also worth giving it a try!
You can create the floating eyeliner look by priming your lids with an eye primer to ensure that your eyeliner stays in place for hours. Next, you take an eyeliner with a sharp tip and draw an arc just above the natural crease. It will create a floating effect, and you can use eyeliner in color other than black for extra dramatic flair.
CLIO Gelpresso Waterproof Pencil Gel Liner is a dual-function Korean beauty product. It can be used as an eyeliner and also as an eye shadow. It delivers a smooth and vivid color payoff of traditional gel eyeliner but in the form of a pencil. There are options of trendy colors to choose from other than classic black.
Focus on a light flushed look
It is one of the easiest ways to look refreshed during spring and summer. For this, you need to integrate natural-looking blushes into your makeup routine.
Etude House Lovely Cookie Blusher is perfect for adding a touch of bright yet soft color to your complexion. The blusher is made with a special powder that reflects light from various angles. It is available in 10 soft shades. The shade #11 Peach Chox Wafers is just the right one for giving your cheeks a naturally flushed look.
