[Tutorial] Laneige K-Beauty Blogger Makeup Workshop

Here is a Korean Inspired Natural Day Look

I had attended to Laneige K-Beauty Blooger Makeup Workshop last weekend. Thanks Nuffnang and Laneige Malaysia for selecting me and other nine bloggers to this workshop. #thanks&appreciate

#throwbackmemories I posted at my Instagram last week.
Feel free to drop by, My Insta \(≧▽≦)/

Start from a warm opening speech from Laneige's staff and simple introduction about Laneige concepts and their products served by light refreshments from Starbucks. Sorry I couldn't have time to take any pictures because I am busied to remove my make up before the workshop start. Lol... I am a girl who never leave makeup whenever at outside. :D

Simple introduction about Laneige....

As I mentioned on my previous post, Laneige is not an unfamiliar brand not only in Asia but also worldwide. Laneige received many compliments from magazines, beauty articles and also blogosphere especially their famous sleeping pack and the face of famous Korean actress, Song Hye Kyo.

"Laneige, which means 'snow' in French, completes the beauty of women by pursuing the artistic sensibility of water science to help women archive radiant, dewy skin they have always longed for. Laneige helps balances the appreciation of snow crystals with tireless research for the essence of hydration technologies." — Laneige Malaysia

With makeup guru of the day, Geraldine Loy
She has a very small face here and she doesn't look like her age in real. Omo!!! Jealously!! 

The main purpose of this makeup workshop was learning how to archive Korean beautiful glowingly skin and the make up of natural day look and sexy night look.

Such an honored to have Mrs.Geraldine Loy at this Laneige Beauty Workshop. She kindly shared skin and makeup tricks and tips to us.

Geraldine was demonstrating on the proper steps to makes the skin fully absorption by the products

The model and the assistant of the day. :D

Because I am fully concentrated on every steps that Geraldine had teaches me therefore I found out that I lack of pictures during the makeover session. But never mind, I recap back all the steps at home and now I would like to share with you the tricks and tips of having a fresh and dewy skin like Korean girls do.

Thanks Laneige for such generous gifts. 

So this is my bare face, make-up zero only eye contact lens on. As I stated on previous post, I do not have flawless skin in real life, all thanks to camera and software who makes me become flawless in digital world.

My skin type is combination dry skin. My skin is slight-shine on my t-zone area and my skin tendency to turn oily within 3 to 4 hours or even faster if the environment when crossing the environment of hot (outside & carpark) and cold (air-con area). My pore is fine but like a prick of needle and the frequency of breakout is rarely, mostly once a month. I do have slight uneven skin tone too. ╭(╯﹏╰)╮

But surprisingly when I did skin analysis, my skin is 6 years younger than my actual age. Suddenly feeling proud of my skin, lol.

My skin is 13 years old. Aww!!♥♥♥
Damn touch therefore a proper skincare is a must to maintain my baby skin.

Radiant skin is the ultimate goals of practically all Korean girls wish to have. Nope!! Are most of the girls wanted to? One of their secrets is skincare but in pure and gentle way yet in high hydration.

So, the next step after vital step, cleansing. Geraldine has introduced to me Laneige White Plus Renew Skin Refiner, just make it simple.... is a toner.

Laneige White Plus Renew Skin Refiner 

Laneige White Plus Renew Skin Refiner is a whitening line that gives more intensive and meticulous care to the apple zone (the eye area cheekbone area). Its also making the entire face appear lightened and more luminously transparent. Other than that, this product also readies to the skin by caring for dead cells and improving skin discoloration. 

Laneige White Plus Renew Skin Refiner formulated with Manassantin B, realizes the all day care system that completely takes care of the discolored apple zone, retexturizing your skin with more brightened and clarified look. 

The texture
The texture is light, fresh and the smell nice too.  

How to use?
Take a cotton pad and pour some amount onto it.

And then lightly wipe along skin texture with the steps reference above. Geraldine stated that the steps will helps to maximize the absorption of the products while preventing from sagging. :)

And after Laneige White Plus Renew Skin Refiner, the next step will be.....

Laneige White Plus Renew Emulsion

Laneige White Plus Renew Emulsion is like a milk moisture to me but in more lighter way. Its forms a moisture protection barrier, keeping the skin brighter and more transparent.

The texture
The texture is not sticky yet fresh, softens and has slight cooling effect that helps to calm skin.

How to use?
Pump two pumps onto hand. If you have bigger face, you may take a bigger appropriate amount.

Then lightly apply accordingly follow the steps I posted above to maximize the absorption. 

After Laneige White Plus Renew Emulsion, the next step is serum. Serum is my favorite among all skincare because its help to refine your skin deeper comparing with moisturizer.

Laneige White Plus Renew Original Essence 

Laneige White Plus Renew Original Essence helps to remove blemishes, increase transparency and brighten skin tone by two tones lighter for baby-like brightness and clarity in only two weeks out from four reliefs with six benefits.  

2 Weeks - MELACRUSHER™ actively removed the Melanin Veil, for a flawless, brighter complexion in just 2 short weeks

4 Reliefs - Gently reliefs for sensitive skin and free from 4 harmful elements: Paraben, Animal Products, Artificial Pigments and Mineral Oil

6 Benefits - Luster, Moisture, Brightness, Evens Skin Tone, Slows Melanin Rate and Reduces Dullness

The texture
Comparing with other serum, the texture is kind of thickly but still in a a very light way. It does not have tacky feeling after applying and can be mix into other serum if you want to maximize the effects together with your regular serum. 

How to use?
Pumps two times onto your hand or mix with your regular serum.

AAlso lightly apply in order of the steps above. Lightly press the palms down onto the face for the better absorption.

After skincare, the next step is makeup!! Yay!! But sometime if you're in a rush you might be difficult applying layering makeup like primer > foundation/bb cream/cc cream > setting powder.

So, I would like to introduce a way faster and convenient while also comfortably bring to everywhere. It also can helps you to skip many steps.

So, this is the different before and after applying skincare, Laneige BB Soothing Cushion and Laneige Water Supreme Finishing Pact.

As I mentioned above, my pores is fine but like a prick of needle as u can see on the left side and now is perfectly cover on the right side. 

This coverage did not giving me a cakey and heavy look. By using these products, my makeup was more docile and my skin becomes tad oily after 4 to 5 hours longer (usually 3 to 4 hours). I really love BB cushion because it’s like all in one to me and saving my time too. :)

Now move to eye makeup. Geraldine teaches us how to archive simple natural day look and transforms to night sexy night look with just 5 minutes.

The Korean makeup is indeed a trend nowadays. Korean natural look can see everything is kept to a minimum but the girls look very 'together' and polished. Brows are linear, flawless canvas (already done
\(^o^)/ )  and  pigmented lips. They would look like as they are barely wearing much makeup yet having a fresh, flawless face and youthful glow all day-long.

Let's move to the important part.... a straight and bold eyebrow.

Your eyes are the part of your face that really sets you apart from everyone else and the brows play a major part in highlighting that. Believe it or not, eyebrows have the ability to channel emotion. One bad waxing experience can leave you looking permanently angry, confused or even amused. The shape of the eyebrows can really change a person’s look.

Since Asians traditionally have a flat face, their eyebrows play a very important role in making a good impression. That is why people should pay more attention to their eyebrows. A simple, yet delicate shaping of the eyebrows can make you look your best for the fall.

Straight eyebrows are very popular these days. Long, thick and bold eyebrows make you look nice and have a slightly curved at the arch (not too high) to look more feminine.

So, today I am going to a straight, fuller and bold eyebrow that I learnt thru the workshop (although I did it every day lol)

1. IIf you're expert enough to "your eyebrow", outlining the top and bottom of your eyebrow and create a low-high arch at the two over three of your eye shape. Be sure lightly when lining. And then fill them between the line you've created.

2. Take a eyebrow spoolie. Some eyebrow pencil has a spoolie on the opposite side. If you don't have a spoolie, you may use a cotton bud too. 

3. Use the spoolie starting blend away the harshness of outline and makes it looks softer. 

4. Addition step: If you have a light hair color, remember to use an eyebrow mascara to neutralize eyebrow and hair. Black hair should has to use eyebrow mascara (coffee color) to makes your face looks more friendly. :) 

For natural day look, I'd only using the lightest and darkest eye shadows to create.

5. Take a soft eyeliner pencil and start lining to upper inner rims to create an illusion of a fuller and darker lash line.

6. Using the lightest shadow color apply on the lid on your eye and using a darker color to line the lining from preventing smudging. 

7. This is how its look when you open your eyes. 

8. Then curls your lashes to makes your lashes more curly. 

9. Using a mascara that containing water-proof function or maybe not (depends on you). Gently pull the wand up to the end of your lashes and start at the base of your lashes and slowly wiggle the brush back and forth while you slowly sweep them up. One more coat is needed for strong hold, Don't be ashamed if you need three or four.

10. For bottom lashes, do remember using the tip of mascara to brush and slowly brush the bottom lashes vertically.

Smudge proof, Water proof. 

This is the final of natural day look. :)

The comparison between natural makeup eye and zero naked eye.

My eyes become more spiritual and my face no duller looking and even skin tone now. :D

Let's moving to cheeky cheeky bom bom. \(^o^)/

Blush part

Blush helps to enhance and define the cheekbones. Blush also helps create an innocent look, a look which is most definitely attractive. People have different face shapes so, for every face shape, there is a way of applying blush to enhance your whole personality. If the right color is chosen, can contribute to your sex appeal by making you look sexier and more sophisticated; no wonder it never misses from celebrities makeup. 

I hate applying blush but after Geraldine find out the right place for me to apply on my cheekbone; I am not that hate blusher anymore. I will try using blusher more in future. :D

Laneige Professional Selection Blusher in 01 Pink Gradation 

Versatile cheek blusher in complementing pink hues shade and highlight face to create the illusion of a smaller and slender looking face. 

How to? 
I want a vivid and bright look so I apply on my apple of cheek. :D

Know-how for making smaller and brighter face 
It gives slimmer and smaller looking face to Asian women. 
1. Use the shading colors to give natural blushing without any lines of separation underneath the forehead, sidelines of the nose, exposed jaw line and cheek outlines. 
2. Apply the highlight colors on the T-zone area, eye area, below eyes, and tips of the chin, to add more brightness. 

Know-how for making vivid and bright look 
Light pink and peach-colors gives you brighter and lively look. 
1. Blush centering on the apple of cheek, which is the most noticeably when smiling. 
2. After the application of foundation, apply Creamy Shimmer Blusher in a tapping and spreading motion.

Lastly, move to kissable lips. My favorite part.~\(≧▽≦)/~

A lipstick is one of fashion accessory. Lipstick is fun to wear and it can brighten up a woman’s mood instantly. When choosing lipstick it’s wise to pick a few different shades that reflect your different moods.

Although it seems that the color choice in lipstick is unending, there are also just as many brands of lipstick to choose from. Today I am using Pure Glossy Lipstick from Laneige too.

Laneige Pure Glossy Lipstick in LR107 Delicious Pink

Lipstick with the glossy texture of lip gloss and long-lasting glassy-clear gloss.

  • The glossy glass effect of lip gloss

Slide Glass Formula Technology creates long-lasting clear gloss.

  • Vivid and clear color

Clear and transparent Slide Glass base enhances transparency to project the natural hue of color for clear and pure color expression.

  • Soft jelly-like texture

Jelly-like Flexible Wax System ensures resilient and smooth application and long-lasting texture.

  • Lip exfoliation
The constitution is similar to the oil-moisture balance of lips to create an oil barrier on dry lips to tonify the cells.

The swatch of the lipstick
The color is more brighter in real comparing to the picture. Perhaps I should change the background into white for the more accurate swatch.

How to? 
 Gently apply on lips from inner part to outer. Like this. :D

After complete all those steps, now is the final look of natural day look.  
Chio bu? lololololololol

Natural day look

One more. This is the picture above one. Lol

Okay let's move to the last part, sexy night look transformation within 5 minutes from day look.

Koreans really know how to rock their eyeliner. Many Korean celebrities adopted the use of eyeliners to create a sexy and fierce appeal. Seriously I tired of speaking so let's move to the parts, lol. :)

1. This time thicken the eyeliner (from the natural look) extend the line by around 2mm and finish off with a sharp edge.

2. Start connect from the back of upper liner and continue the line from the back carefully move to front. As you can see when the liner comes to middle, it should be thinner compare with back.

3. Then picking black shadow and apply on the top of liner preventing from smudging (top and bottom liner)

4. To create more dimensional to eye, using bronze eye shadow color and apply the eyelid area. Then using light gold shadow and apply in the middle to enhance the eye look. 

5. Using crystal white shadow applies at the Nose Bridge, cheekbone, lips and chin to create dimensional to your face. 

(Colors swatches show below)

Black for liner, Crystal white for highlight
