FOTD: Korean Inspired Natural look

When I was still working at the MAC Counter, I had a lot of Korean customers. Koreans are known for their flawless skin and I'm always curious about their skincare and makeup regimen. Sometimes, I ask them what makeup products they're using (if they are not in a hurry).  And I guess you know what's their common answer-- Yeah,  BB creams! Aside from that, I also noticed that they are a big fan or eyeliners and orange lipsticks (MAC Morange and Korean Candy are their favorites). Koreans are also very serious with their skincare routine.... from Cleansing oils, toner, emulsion, moisturisers etc.

So here's my Korean-inspired natural daytime look. This is my default or go-to look if I'm in hurry. If I want a different look for nighttime, I just add a darker eyeshadow or change the color of my lipstick.

 
For a flawless and natural look, using a BB cream with medium coverage will do the trick. Use concealer to hide undeyere circles and unwanted blemishes and set with loose/pressed powder to make your makeup last longer.
