Korean Makeup Tutorial

Step 1: Apply Creamy White or Nude Kohl to Remove Pigmentation on Your Eye Area

Koreans are blessed with flawless and radiant skin with absolute no signs of dullness or darkness. So, let’s start by concealing all the darkness to reveal the fresh and radiant skin beneath. I have used the Kryolan Derma Camouflage Concealer to hide and lighten my dark circles.

Next, let’s move towards the eye makeup. Pick a creamy white or nude kohl and thickly cover up your eye area up to the brows to lighten and remove pigmentation on your eye area. Don’t bother trying to be neat—we’ll be smudging it later, so don’t sweat it.

Step 2: Apply a Shimmery White

Apply a shimmery white, silver or a champagne eyeshadow above the kohl and softly blend it with a blending eyeshadow brush. Here, I have used the Revlon eyeshadow in Sand.

Step 3: Apply a Soft Shimmery Medium Brown Shade to the Upper Lash Line

Korean makeup style doesn’t emphasize the eyeshadows on the crease so we would be focusing the eye makeup only on the upper and the lower lash line. Apply a soft shimmery medium brown shade to the upper lash line and softly blend it with the silver eyeshadow.

Step 4: Apply Shimmery Turquoise Kohl to the Lower Lash Line

Apply shimmery turquoise kohl to the lower lash line to lift the eye makeup. Here, I used the Maybelline Colossal in Turquoise. Set this kohl with a matching eyeshadow to prevent creasing of the liner. Then, line your waterline with soft nude kohl to create soft eye look as black or brown can look harsh for the Korean style makeup. Here, I used the Oriflame Nude Kohl pencil.

Step 5: Apply Black Eyeliner and Mascara to Your Upper Lash Line

Use a black eye liner and apply it on your upper lash line to define your eyes. Gently wing it outwards to elongate and give an illusion of a bigger eye. Here, I used the Kryolan Black liquid liner. Then, apply mascara to complete the eye look.

Step 6: Apply a Soft Pink Blush

Apply a light bb cream to neutralize your complexion. Here, I have used the Lakme CC cream in the shade Bronze. Then, set it with a compact to prevent budging or creasing of the product. Apply a soft pink blush to give dimension to your face.

Step 7: Lip Makeup

Korean style makeup has a very soft ombre-like effect on the lips. To create ombre lips start by filling in your lip area with a soft nude brownish pink lip gloss. Here, I used the Maybelline Color sensational Lip Gloss in Hooked on Pink.

Then, apply a hot pink shade to the center of the lips. Here, I used the Mua Lipstick in shade 3.

Now, gently blend both the lipstick and the lip gloss with your fingers or a lip brush to achieve a seamless even finish.
