Laneige BB Cream to BB Cushion

Laneige makeup range, including Laneige BB cream products, are still developing until now. Unlike the skin care line which is known to be really good, there is one product that unfortunately don't get many love from people which is the Laneige Snow BB Cream.

Some describe it as a product that other than the high SPF, it has no other benefits. It even cause skin to break out after using it. It has very little coverage that some people might like it. But the worst case is this product can't blend well and look cakey. You can find out more here.

So, I guess Laneige can't just do nothing about it. When the cushion trend emerge, they immediately lauch their own BB cushion. At the moment they already create many different types of BB cushion, one of them is the BB Cushion [Whitening] SPF50+ PA+++ which is the one that has whitening effect to it. The great thing about this product is this one has sweat-proof formula. So, perfect for summer time.

The other one is BB Cushion [Pore Control] SPF50+ PA+++ which is just like it's name has benefit to control pores and cover them. It has semi matte finish rather than the dewy finish which is the popular trend in korean makeup world.

There is also Snow BB Soothing Cushion SPF50+ PA+++ and probably the most popular one. Again just like it's name, it has soothing effect to it. It provides good hydration to your skin and it's very long lasting because again it's sweat-proof.

And last but not least, this is the anti aging one. It's called BB Cushion [Anti Aging] SPF50+ PA+++ with wrinkle care, skin luster, and long lasting effect. It has stronger UV protection than the other 3 cushions. Just like the Snow BB Soothing Cushion one, this also has cooling effect to refresh tired skin.

Korean Eye Makeup for Monolid and Double Eyelid

Korean eye makeup can be differentiate into 2 kinds: makeup for monolid eyes and for double eyelid eyes. Makeup for double eyelid eyes are pretty much easier than for monolid. Anyway today we're going to go through both. First, I'm going to give an example of an excellent monolid eye makeup.

You can never go wrong with gold and brown smokey eye makeup, especially if you have monolid eyes. You only need 2 eyeshadow color, light gold for the inner eye and bronze for the outer eye to create smokey effect. If you have monolid eyes, make sure to apply your eyeshadow until it appear 3 mm above the eyes when you open them.

Another issue with monolid eyes is when applying eyeliner. It's okay to apply a bit thick because most of it not gonna show up when the eyes are open. Also it's okay to thicken up the wing because again most of it basically gone once you open your eyes.

Now let's take a look at the example of double eyelid makeup one. I actually wrote a tutorial for this summer look here.

The main difference between monolid and double eyelid eyes are, the double eyelid one doesn't need that much eyeshadow and eyeliner. A little goes a long way.

First, apply the base color all over your lid and above them. Then, apply any color you want on the eyelid and below your eyes. Next you can apply eyeliner, as I said before you only need a thinnest stroke and you good to go. If you want you can apply the same color below the eyes but only on the outer part. Apply mascara, and it's done. Super easy and quick.
