BEAUTY BAR : KBeauty, Baby!

This year has been a huge year for KBeauty, with Korean skincare, cosmetics and beauty trends making their way over to the mainstream beauty world of North America. Korean trends generally stray away from the sharp contouring and dark, arched brows that are favored by Instagram beauty gurus. Korean beauty leans more towards the glowy “I just jogged around the block” look, with radiant, dewy skin as its focal point.

This Fashionista caught my eye with the way she combined the trends into one awesome look for the summer. This look is edgy, but still wearable and fresh. The eye look is a bronzy smokey eye, complemented by glossy pink lips and fresh dewy skin.

The face is kept simple with Korean cushion foundation for radiant skin and some light coverage. The amazing thing about these cushion foundations is they give you that strobing glow without the effort. The summer heat is the perfect time to let your skin breathe and keep it simple. It’s a break from high coverage foundations and a chance to let freckles and imperfections show through. The face is completed with a slight touch of bronzer to frame the face and a hint of blush for a subtle flush of color.

Her eye look however, is a complete contrast with a sharp wing shape for the entire eye so that the shadows and the eyeliner all match up to give the grungy eye look some structure. Her brows were kept looking natural, but sharp around the end to keep the look clean.

Her lips are a combination of three products and create the perfect glossy pink lips that give those Instagram lips but without the over-drawn look that can a look a little clown-like if not done right.

The perfect look for every Fashionista/o to this summer!

What’s on the Beauty Bar: The essentials for this look include Korean cushion foundation, a great brow pencil, a killer setting spray to keep the look fresh for the entire day and lastly a super glossy lip paint.
