Review: Neo Dali Sweet Chocolate Brown Circle Lenses


Hi hi lovelies~^^

Today I have a different type of review for you guys *drum roll* .....


The Neo Dali Brown Circle Lenses :D



Brand: NEO
Origin: South Korea
Water Content: 45%
Diameter: 14.2 mm effect
Base Curve: 8.6
Duration: 1 year disposable


I just realised that intro was a little pointless, the title, duh lol~ silly me. These are my second pair of lenses that I have ever tried, the first being the Geo Grang Grang Choco Brown lenses which I will review later and link here. I wanted to review these particular pairs first because I have worn them for much longer for me to have an overall opinion on them.

Being a worry warts, I was always really terrified about trying circle lenses. Why? Because my dad would always be like "Don't put that in your eye! No good, no good!" and "You go blind one day!" in a very asian accent XD But every time I see people wearing them I really envy how they enlarge their eyes and make them look so pretty keke

My best friend who is like an circle lens mania, was one the first person who really got me interested in them >.< hehe thank you^^

Ok enough rambling, now to the review~ I personally like these pair a lot more than the Geo Grang Grang ones because first of all, although they are both 14.2mm in diameter, the Geo one looks HUGE on me. I look like a fly or something, especially if I don't have eye makeup on a little over exaggeration? :p But these ones in particular look much more natural whilst giving me a desired enlargement :D

I always thought that because I'm such a sensitive person as in skin and body wise >.< I thought my eyes would be pretty sensitive and be dried out/irritated really fast with lenses on. However I was really surprised that I could wear these lenses for 6+ hours without experiencing any dryness or discomfort in anyway. Because I also work long hours and usually don't get home until late, when I wear my lenses I would have them on for like 9 hours or maybe more before taking them out which is not recommended!!Usually after the 7 hour mark and over, I would then be able to feel the lenses in my eyes, and feel as if my eyes are a little tired. But funnily they don't really feel dry. For me, I just feel as if there's something in my eyes and sometimes my vision will like blur a little that exact feeling when you get that sleepy booger thing in your eye XD best and most accurate way of describing it LOL but if I apply some eyedrops then my eyes would instantly be revived and feel as if I'd just freshly put them in.

The only times where I feel that my eyes are dry when I have these on, is when I have used the lenses all day and only soaked them in solution for like 6 hours or less before putting them on again the next day. When that does happen, it's usually around the 6 hour mark where I can feel that my eyes are getting a little dry and tired, but once again, if I put some eyedrops in then my eyes would be fine :) 

Colour/Design ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥  
Compared to other lenses, the design of these lenses are nothing. However, they are what I expected and hope for them to be. These lenses are great for everyday wear and if you already have brown eyes then these will blend in perfectly making your eyes look as if you have naturally big pupils no one will ever notice you will have lenses on :D I gave these lenses a 5/5 rating, but if I were to deduct some points, the only thing I would mention is that when I take pictures my eyes seem to not give a glow or like reflective shine as it would without the lenses on? ahaha. It makes my eyes look somewhat matte, but maybe that's just me, I'm not really too bothered about that :3 

Comfort      
Like I said before, when I wear these for long hours I will not feel much discomfort! Only slight blurriness as in I feel as if there is something in my eyes in my vision after like 7+ hours. What I also really like about these ones is that about 95% of the time I would forget that I have lenses on so they are super super comfortable to wear. 

Enlargement  
     
For me, I feel like these are very enlarging. Maybe its because I am still new to lenses and also the fact that I personally feel as if my eyes are a little small, but nonetheless, I really like the effect if gives me. Anything larger is a no no for now XD

YesStyle Haul #2


Okay so this haul was done a long, long time ago.. like way back in July~ I just totally forgot that I would continue to do haul posts until the other day >.< hehe oops. I hope you guys like it, well at least find them helpful in anyway, so you get an idea on what you will expect to get if you purchase the same items. 

This 2nd haul wasn't much, I only purchase 3 items. However, I have like 3 other hauls that I've also done over the past few months so I shall have them up as separate posts as well. 



 This time instead of it coming in a wrapped package, it came in a box which I thought was cute :)

I am actually super pleased with this purchase, though it was an impulsive buy. Although I thought it was really cute, I was worried with how the colour would turn out since the images aren't always 100% true to colour due to lighting. I knew that if I got it, it would not turn out that light, but in fact be a darker yellow. *Drum rolls*... and I was right! But instead of being disappointed, I actually do like the colour more than how it was showed in the picture. It turned out to be more of a mustard type yellow~ Nonetheless, I do not mind at all because I absolutely love it^^ I was also surprised at how good the material was, I thought it would be one of those typical cheap China materials that you get from the street markets >.< But since I did purchase this back in like July and after using it nearly daily for like 3 months, the straps and the dangly thing at the end (don't know what it's called, the things that look like curtain handles XD) are starting to tear a little :( 

On the side note, I got this when it was on sale for $28.80 but if you were to purchase this now, you may need to wait for them to order one in as well as paying the full price of $35.

After seeing Bubzbeauty use this in her previous, previous, previous videos, I had always wanted to try it out. The reason being because I really liked how it gave her skin that nice glowy, dewy look and that the packaging was really cute and unique. I was going to purchase this when I went to Singapore earlier this year, but then decided not to cause I kept saying what ifs, but after reading many review for this (though it seemed to be a hit or a miss product for some people) in the end I though what the heck, why not? And since my formal was coming up at the end of the year I thought I should start to try out different foundations to see which ones photographed the best :) I won't talk much about this, since I shall do a separate review on this later and once that's up I will link it here.

Lotion ♥

I was not going to purchase this here since if was soo much more expensive but since I had no other alternatives since it was sold out at Naruko Australia, I just purchased it for the sake of my skin. I purchased this for a whooping $32 when I could've bought it for $20.90 at Naruko Australia :( 

I forgot to take a picture of this when I received the package, but it looks exactly like how it was shown but wrapped in a clear plastic sleeve (as would how you would receive it if you were to purchase it in stores). 


Overall Rating ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ 
Yet again, I was not disappointed with my 2nd purchase with YesStyle. Though I was a little bummed out at paying an extra $11 on my Naruko Lotion I will still give it 5 stars :) ... *le sigh* 

Will I purchase again? Yes indeed :D

Review: Nivea Lip Balms

Hi lovelies, I'm finally free from my finals and I am so relieved~ More time for blogging and dramas hehe^^

So today I thought I'd review something quick and easy, Nivea lip balms. I swear I have a lot of Nivea products, not only because they are my all time favorite but because it's the brand that I grew up to using because my mum used it since she was younger as well :) 


I have products ranging from their body lotions, sunscreens, makeup remover and to lip balms~ I really do love Nivea products because they're gentle enough for sensitive skin and they all have a similar distinct scent that I've grown to love. But I must say out of all the Nivea products that's I own I think my favourite product are their lip balms. 

I do have quite a few of their lip balms and so I thought I might to a little comparison of the ones that I own.

Nivea Milk & Honey


Product Description
Pamper lips and experience rich and creamy lip care with sweet, milk notes:
  • Milk – rich in all important amino acids, vitamins and minerals
  • Honey – contains a high amount of antioxidants and has effective healing properties
This one was one of the first ones that I purchased and I when I first used it I fell in love with it. Why? Mainly because of the scent, I used to always whip it out of my bag just to smell it keke XD It really does have the milky-honey scent to it but after using it for over a year I sometimes feel like the smell is a little too strong for my liking. This one is part of the Pure & Natural Line and it really does pamper the lips with a smooth, slightly creamy care to it. It's fairly moisturising, much more so than the Burt Bee's one, and the texture of it isn't too greasy which I like. 

Recommend: This one is good for those who have slightly dry-normal lips that want their lips to prevent from being chapped, so I do recommend this to people. If they don't mind the scent that is~

Would I Repurchase? As you can see I'm pretty much nearly done with this, so yes. I like to use this before I apply my makeup to prep my lips for tints/lipstick, and because it isn't too greasy on the lips, its perfect and won't interfere with what I will put on my lips next.

Rating: 4.5/5 stars

Nivea Chamomile & Calendula 


Product Description
With top notes of rosemary, citrus and bergamot, NIVEA Chamomile & Calendula protects against moisture loss whilst strengthening and soothing lips with key ingredients:
  • Chamomile – a wound-healing ingredient that leaves chapped lips wonderfully soft
  • Calendula – traditionally used to soothe and alleviate inflammation
This one is also part of the Pure & Natural Line and the reason why I bought this one was merely because I thought Chamomile would be good for the lips. To be honest, I don't really tend to reach for this one as often as all the other ones and I'm not really sure why. It is slightly similar to the Milk and Honey one but I don't think it is as moisturising and I think the texture of this one feels slightly thinner. I don't think I have the right to give much opinion on this one because I have barely used it. But I must say I would understand if most people are turned off by the scent of this one because even I was turned off by it at the beginning. But now I am ok, I sorta like it, it kinda smells like green tea with a slight sweet scent. 

Recommend: Maybe, if you really really like the smell of green tea and wouldn't mind having an average lip balm

Would I Repurchase? It is a decent lip balm, but if I were to choose then probably not

Rating: 3 stars


Nivea Hydro Care


Product Description
The innovative light formula of NIVEA Lip Care Hydro Care quickly absorbs and leaves a sensationally soft feeling on your lips.
Enriched with Pure Water and Jojoba it supports your lip’s natural moisturisation process leaving them feeling soft and smooth for longer

This one is an okay lip balm, it feels very light-weight and glides on like water. I don't have much to say about this one either. I think I had high expectations for this one because of its name 'Hydro Care'. I thought it would be very moisturising, but in all honesty I don't think so. It does give your lips hydration but too be honest I don't think it gives that much moisture compared to the other ones. But if I think about it, the product description is pretty spot on. The formula is light and once you apply it to your lips it really does absorbs quickly leaving your lips feeling soft. What I really do like about this one is the scent. It isn't too strong as compared to the rest yet it smells really nice and fresh. There's a slight scent of vanilla to it which I really like. 

Recommend: I think this would be nice for those who doesn't like those greasy/sticky feeling lip balms and or those who already have nice lips but want to put extra care to them. 

Would I Repurchase? I might actually, I like to use this after every time I brush my teeth. Sounds weird haha but yeah >.< 

Rating: 4/5 stars

Nivea Essential Care


Product Description
The moisturising formula of NIVEA Essential Care is enriched with Jojoba Oil and natural Shea Butter to effectively care for your lips and prevent them from moisture loss.

Leaves your lips soft and smooth.

This one is my favourite out of the 5. It is super moisturising and leaves a shine to the lips. Well all of them do, but still, I like this one better. It can be a little bit greasy/sticky on the lips if you apply a lot of it but I just usually apply one layer and it's fine for me. The texture of it is very nice and creamy feeling, and glides on very smoothly. It almost feels like a butter on a stick XD. Compared to the other ones I feel as if this one actually absorbs into my lips. Like the other ones do absorb into my lips as well but I feel like they just sit on my lip for a while before they do. The moisture on the lips is also a lot longer lasting than the other ones, so would be perfect for cold, dry weather conditions. The smell I really do like, it kinda smells vanilla-ish. No? I'm not too sure but it has a slight sweet scent to it but not too overpowering. I believe this one is also the original, so that may be why I like this one the best. Original products tend to always be the best ones, or the ones people always come back to.

Recommend: Yes, I highly recommend this one for everyone, especially for those who have really dry lips, it will work wonders 

Would I Repurchase? Yes, I think I have to say this is my HG lip care product. I use this daily and always have this one on me at all times. 

Rating: 5/5 stars


Nivea Soft Rose 


Product Description
NIVEA Soft Rose Lip balm is perfect for any day & any time when lips need some TLC, an essential to help protect & nourish your lips.

Treat yourself to a velvety soft lip feeling with a subtle rose sheen & scent, so you can express life moments any day & any time in every kind of way.

This one is the newest addition to my collection. I believe this was only released not too long ago, but you never know, probably is just Australia since we always get everything last. I wasn't in need of a new lip balm since I already have a lot but as soon as I saw it sitting on the shelves in the shops I feel as if it was like calling out for me so I just had to get it lol. It was the colour I swear, I mean look, its pink!  Even the actual balm is pink! When I first got it I was so excited~ I mean the Milk & Honey and Chamomile & Calendula balms were coloured as well but this one was much more attractive looking hehe^^ The smell I was hoping for it to smell like roses, but it doesn't really. Maybe just a slight hint but it definitely smells like vanilla again. I don't know why but all Nivea lip balms all have a sweet scent to it. Compared to all the other ones the finish of this one is actually velvety and smooth. I'm not sure if I like it yet or not since I prefer lip balms that have a moisture-like feel to it. It does leave you lips feeling soft but I don't think there is any colour to it at all, well it doesn't show up on my lips anyway. This is a nice addition but I have to use it more for me to give my final verdict, but so far I like it :) 

Recommend: If you like a smooth, velvety finish

Would I Repurchase? Still not sure about that yet, maybe

Dollywink VS Kiss Me Liquid Liner

I'm sure you guys have heard of the oh-so-famous Dollywink Liquid Liner, but today I was thinking of doing a comparison between the Dollywink and Kiss Me liquid liners since I love them both!

I first bought the Kiss Me Heroine Make Smooth Liquid Eyeliner (phew! such a long name >.<) around a year ago and absolutely
loved it! I loved it so much that when I went back to Malaysia this Easter holidays I bought myself another one. But I totally forgot that at the back of my drawers I had the Koji Dollywink Liquid Liner that my brother's gf bought me when she went to Japan~ After testing out both of them I must say that the two are almost identical!


The packaging of both is exactly the same, except for the design and colour. The Kiss Me one is a like a wine red, maroon colour all over with gold cursive writing (but you can't see it here since the writing has all been rubbed off) and the Dollywink one is in a gorgeous baby pink colour with purple polka dots and a black cap. 

If I were to choose based on the just appearance, I must say Dollywink wins here, anything pink and polka dots can easily win me over!^^ hehe



Both eyeliners have a 0.1mm ultra thin tip, making it easy for precise application. In the picture the Kiss Me liner tip might look a little longer than the Dollywink one but in real life they're pretty much the same. Must've been the angle of the picture. 

Below are swatches of both liners on bare skin and after being rubbed gently with water



As you can see, the Dollywink liner is a little more durable when it comes to being more long lasting or not. But you can also see that they both left smudges after getting wet. 

But don't be tricked! On the eyes they are literally budge-proof! They do not smudge (maybe unless you like cried excessively or something) and are both pretty pigmented. I wore them from day till night and they did not budge whatsoever. But at the end of the night I noticed that the Kiss Me liner started to like crackle off a bit? Not sure how to explain it cause its not like they peel off or anything. Same with the Dollywink one but isn't as bad as the Kiss Me one. Not all of the liner comes off but just parts of it, but thats ok. Maybe fade might be a better word to use...  But then again it could be just my eye since I'm like an in between of a monolid and double lid. I have a crease but its not as defined as a double lidder and where I put my liner, most of it folds under my eye :( Boo.

Overall Opinion 
More or less I think if I were to choose only ONE I think I might go for the Dollywink one since it is a little tiny weeny bit blacker than the Kiss Me one and is a little more longer lasting, but overall both is still really good. Both liners can draw either a really thin line or you can build them both up for a thicker and dramatic look. And since they both have an ultra thin tip, you can extend your liner out in your inner tear duct creating a little triangle very easily if that's what you like.

I can't remember how much they both retail for, but on Sasa the Dollywink one retails for $13.50 and the Kiss Me one retails for $11.90 so not a bad price!


Note, the Kiss Me eyeliner that I am using here is the old version. My second one that I bought from Malaysia is the upgraded one and looks like this:

The new and improved formula is supposedly 130% more pigmented and the durability is more longer lasting than the previous one. By the sounds of this, it might in fact be just as good as the Dollywink one! Can't wait to try this :) In Malaysia it retailed for RM49.90.

YesStyle Haul #1

Hey guys, sorry for being MIA lately! I was super busy with school since I my assessments and finals for this term were due not too long ago, but I'm back now!

I've recently bought some new products and hopefully I will do reviews after I have tried them out for longer~ In the meantime I have absolutely been spending way too much money for my own good and I blame YesStyle for it >.< I just couldn't help myself! 

This was my first ever purchase with YesStyle even though I had an account with them for a good few months, so I thought I'd show you guys what my little haul consisted of :) 

I will post links of the items that I purchased, so if you guys are interested you can just check them out. I won't make any promises, but just a warning that they might be out of stock by now. Not too sure? 


The package was HUGE, my mum was like "how much did you buy?!" hehehe




They double sealed it :)

Overall Rating ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ 
I originally bought 4 items, but one of my items got defected by the team after it was shipped from their warehouse. I was so sad because it was the one item I was most looking forward to :( But that's alright, YesStyle apologized and gave me a full refund of that item within 3 business days! So fast and great service! 

The quality of the clothes were actually alot better than I expected! I was very pleased with my purchase. It was pretty true to colour as well but the Colour-Block Sweater turned out to much more orange than shown in the picture (most likely due to the lighting). Also the measurements listed on the site was very accurate. All these were free-size and it fit me fine, though it would've been a bit better if it was slighter smaller but that's okay~ It was to be expected anyway cause I am short.. All my clothes hardly ever fit me perfectly..

Will I purchase again? Yes, I already have :) Shall post up next haul soon!

Review: My Beauty Diary Bird's Nest Mask

So whilst I was talking to my friend, I was thinking on what my next post should be about, then she mentioned how she wanted to try out some masks~ then I thought, that's right, masks! 

I had never tried out any masks before, not until sometime late last year, and even then I heard about the ever oh-so-famous My Beauty Diary masks that everyone hyped about. So I'm sure most of you's have heard of My Beauty Diary, if not, then pretty much what My Beauty Diary is is a very popular company in Taiwan that makes a wide variety of masks to suit different skin needs in different seasons.

From their website, they say that their selection aims to restore delicate, young and fair look to skin.

So when I was on a hunt on which mask to buy I came across the Bird's Nest one. Ever since then I have religiously stuck by with it for a good 5+ months and I haven't been more than happy with it. At first I was very hesitant in trying out masks because I scared myself into thinking, 'what if something goes wrong?' 'what if it will irritate my skin?' 'what if I breakout from it?' all these 'what ifs'. But after doing a lot of research I decided to give the Bird's Nest one a try anyway. You know those Bird Nest's soups in Asia where people drink it because it is highly raved about the health benefits it gives you? Well it is believed that the Bird's Nest mask can provide similar effects, but for the skin. I even asked my mum on what the benefits of Bird's Nest are and she said its that it's very good for you, especially the skin. Stating what I already know, ha. But here's what they say about it on Sasa







♥ Product Description 
My Beauty Diary Bird’s Nest Mask whitens, nourishes and renews the skin.
Bird’s nest extract, a precious ingredient, and corallina officinalis, the so-called “bird’s nest from the bottom of the sea”, intensely enhances skin’s moisture level, and nourishes strongly. Hydrolyzed soy and rice protein enhance skin’s defence, elasticity and transparency. They also relieve discomfort resulting from dryness.

It is suitable for normal skin. 
It is especially recommended for dry, rough and dull skin.


♥ How To Use
1. After cleansing and toning steps, tear off the package of the mask and gently place it on the face.
2. Leave on for about 20 – 30 minutes. Then remove the mask.
3. Massage the remains, if any, into the skin. Follow with normal skin care procedure.

So I absolutely love this mask, and definitely recommend this to those who have sensitive, dry skin. I use this 2 times a week and it is true to its words, this is super hydrating and each time I use it my skin feels soo good afterwards. I'm not quite sure about the whitening properties of this though, I think it is just temporary and not necessarily long-term effect. But if you continuously use this then I believe that it will keep your skin in good conditions. But be warned, there is ALOT of essence in the pack. Even after 30mins there would still be heaps of essence left on the sheet, but don't waste it you can rub the excess on your neck once you peel it off your 
face :3 Also, once you open the pack it will look like the following:






The sheet itself it pretty thin, so you have to be careful when opening up the mask because you might accidentally rip it and you don't want that to happen. But sometimes you may come across a pack where it may be wrinkled in some part or the corners would still be attached. If you do, just carefully rip it apart so you can fit it to your face properly. 

What I really love about this is when I wake up the next morning and my face feels so much softer, plumper and brighter. There is also a subtle scent to it, I don't know how to describe the smell but I can understand if people are put off with the scent. However in my opinion I don't mind it so much. I have yet to also experience anything bad from this mask, and would say that this is definitely my HG product! So I highly highly recommend! 


And if I try out any other masks, I shall give you guys a review and a comparison of the two~ But as of now I am very satisfied with this product and will most probably not be in any rush into looking at other ones. Oh, and by the way you get 10 pieces per box for I say $13-20 depending on where you get it :)

Review: Lioele Glittering Jewel Liner

I've been searching for a liner that I could use for under my eyes for quite some time now and when I saw the Lioele one at the store for $10 I thought, why not? :3




♥ Product Description  
Elegant jewel pearl and luxurious nudy gold create glittering eyes and a romantic mood. 

Lioele's Glittering Jewel Eyeliner has a super creamy texture which lets you draw eyelines softly and neatly. It is a long lasting waterproof eyeliner keeps your eyes without smudging even in sweat or sebum.



♥ How To Use 
Starting from the inside corner, fill in between lashes. To use as an eye shadow, draw a thick line then blend the line into the lid. Or with a touch underneath eyes, your makeup creates teary romantic moods on your eyes.






I got the colour in #03 Jewel Champagne and as you can see above it is pretty pinky-gold champagne colour. (Might not show up true to colour in the picture since I took the photo with my phone but it is fairly similar >.<)

The packaging is very cute I think, it comes with a pink cap and a smooth, black handle with pink writing. When I swatched it on my hand, it came out as a gorgeously pigmented colour. I rubbed at the swatches I made really hard and it did not budge at all so it is definitely smudge-proof! It is super creamy and glides on like butter under the eyes~ When I first bought it, I wasn't really expecting much from it BUT I am now pleased to say I am very happy with it^^

What I like about this product is that it is multi-fuctional. It comes in 5 other shades I believe and you can use them as an eyeliner, highlighter or even as a shadow stick. I got the champagne colour one because I wanted to use it as a highlight under my eyes and in the inner corners of my tear duct~ It definitely does open up my eyes more and give a nice bright pop of colour. The lasting power is great, but it might come off a little after a good 6+ hours if the weather is humid. Although it is smudge-proof it might not be sebum or sweat proof.

Pros
- Beautiful colour with very fine glitters making it look shimmery
- Long lasting and budge-proof; it doesn't smudge or run
- Very creamy and smooth
- Relatively affordable
- Alot better than using white because it isn't as harsh

Cons
- Very limited in Australia

I think that's it, there isn't actually nothing much to complain about this product :3

Overall, I really do recommend this liner (especially the champagne one) if you want to give your eyes that extra pop of colour without overdoing it with white liners.

Secrets and Tips On How to Look Like An Ulzzang



In this post I'm going to let you guys in on some tips and secrets on how to get the Ulzzang look~ The key feature in every ulzzang makeup is to look natural yet cute/innocent. I'm no ulzzang myself and nor do I plan to become one but have you ever noticed how pretty and gorgeous ulzzang's are? Even the male ones too! :3


If you want to achieve that look here's some tips on how to do so. 




Step One
Circle lenses are essential if you want to achieve that ulzzang look. Whether you naturally have big eyes or not, most ulzzangs enhance their eyes with circle lenses to give their eyes an innocent, cute, dolly-ish look. Brands such as Geo, Neo are just some of the most well known brands made in Korea. It gives your eyes that extra pop of colour and inner cuteness :3  





Colours such as neutral browns, black and greys are most common among ulzzangs~ 


Step Two
You may have noticed that the number one most important thing that an ulzzang all have in common is their flawless skin. I don't know how they do it, but Korean's in general always have beautiful, soft looking, flawless skin. It's probably the power of makeup and BB Creams but still, to look after your skin is a must! I read somewhere that the average Korean women applies around 15-20 products to their face everyday before leaving their house! However, if you are like me and need to cover some redness or even out your skin tone then apply some BB Cream. Depending on which one you choose to use, it can either give you a dewy or matte finish. Dewy finishes are the most common as it gives your face that healthy glow. 




Step Three
Highlight. Ever noticed how ulzzangs look like they have a tall nose bridge? 99.9% of the time is that they highlight their nose to give it that illusion. If you haven't noticed but most asians tend to have a lower nose bridge compared to non-asians. I don't know why that is but that's just how it is. So not only do ulzzangs tend to highlight their nose bridge with a sheer white colour but majority of asians do this as well as it makes your nose look more lenient and elegant. Other features that are also highlighted are the middle of the forehead, top of you cheeks, the cupid's bow and your chin.

Also to give the eyes that extra pop of colour and to open up the eyes more, ulzzangs use a shimmering pearl shadow stick and apply it along under their eyes as well as the inner tear duct. 





Step Four
In my opinion the eyebrows are one the most prominent features of the face. Not only does it shape your face, but with an un-groomed brow it can make you look tired, dull or even sad. And no one wants that, right? Majority of Koreans have straight, thick brows and the reason being is that it makes you appear younger looking as well as innocent. 



Step Five
Apply eyeliner and extending it out slightly only on the top lids to create a natural look. But if you like a smokier eye you can apply it on your bottom lashes as well and connect it to the top liner, this will elongate your eyes. For an even more natural look, apply your eyeliner as thin as possible and use brown eye shadow to lightly wing out your liner as well as smoke out the edges. 




Step Six
Apply mascara and natural looking lashes (if you need them). Very self explanatory :3


Step Seven
Blush blush blush~ Whether its rosy, pink, or orange alot of ulzzangs use blush to give them an even more innocent look. 



Step Eight
And lastly, ever notice how in kdramas the females always have pretty lips? They don't look like they are wearing any lipstick so you assume it is their natural lip colour. But the secret is Lip Tints! Not only does it look super natural but is long lasting. And to top it off you can add some clear gloss on top~ 





And there you have it~ Also if you have awesome photoshop skills then throw them in! But if you're like me and am completely clueless, use Instagram! kekeke :3
