Gradient lips are one of the low-maintenance looks you can ever try. They are quite popular in the Korean makeup routine. It’s quite easy to create gradient lips, the steps usually involve filling in the inner lips with a darker shade, which is then either faded out at the edges or is blended into a slightly different shade. This look can be achieved with a matte lipstick and a flat makeup brush. You can also apply some gloss on the center of your lips to make it look pouty.
Achieve natural flush with fruity pigments
There’s nothing like naturally flushed cheeks, while the blushes you own certainly helps to add some color to your cheeks, they don’t always appear natural, and you know what Koreans do about it? They use fruity pigments to add a natural flush to the cheeks. Ingredients like strawberry, peaches, cherries, watermelons, etc. are used for creating these pigments that can also be used as eyeshadow and lip stains. You can also make these fruity pigments at home by watching some tutorials.
Use a cushion applicator for a flawless finish
If you have been struggling with your makeup and it never turns out the way you wanted it to look- flawless, you should probably try this technique, which happens to work well for Koreans. Instead of using a makeup brush or makeup sponge, use a cushion applicator to apply makeup as they are not only easy to control, but they also help to blend the product quickly and make it look flawless, minus crease lines and blotchy patches. Additionally, cushion applicators help to distribute the products evenly because of controlled applications.
Keep the brows straight
While that arch on your brows certainly adds some sharpness to your face, it can also add some years to your look, making you appear older than you actually are. One of the beauty secrets Korean women swear by is keeping their brows straight to achieve a youthful appearance. Koreans shape and fill their brows straight with just a tiny arc at the end. You should start filling your brows from the inner corner and make sure to taper down the brow hairs to one point.
Say yes to puppy-dog eyes and no to cat-eye
Cat-eye can add a certain amount of drama and a fierce vibe to the look, but it does nothing when it comes to making yourself look younger. Instead of creating cat-eye, Koreans choose to do it puppy-dog eyes way, which we tell you, works quite amazingly. They keep the flick a bit softer and not sharper; also, instead of creating the flick in the upward direction, they take it slightly lower than their top lashline. This makeup technique not only helps in elongating your eyes but also adds a natural and youthful effect to your look.
