Korean Makeup Trends Autumn 2016

We all know that Korean beauty products and trends have taken the skin care world by storm with fresh, natural affordable and innovative skin care products. The focus on fresh, clean, natural and glowing skin is a look we have all been hankering after and the Korean beauty products give us just that.

Skin Care Innovators

Trends in skin care include at-home skin care tools like LED devices, so you can get spa-perfect skin at home. Waterless products are also showing up as a new Korean trend in terms of being more moisturising and also conserving our natural water sources. The baby faced look favoured by Korean beauty is still oh-so-very in. Korean products brought us BB and CC creams, sheet masks, oil cleansers and gel sleeping masks.

Autumn Makeup

But it’s not only in terms of beauty and skin care treatments that the Koreans are leading the pack, it is makeup trends too, so it’s worth checking out a few of these so you, too, can be ahead of the curve this autumn.

Face Fitness

One of the biggest focuses of these trends is face shape and contouring. The “ideal” is an oval face shape with a gentle but defined V shape at the chin. Achieving and promoting this look requires no extra facial fat around the jaw line, and there is actually an innovative mask treatment that helps to lift and firm the shape of your face, promote facial blood circulation and burn up any extra facial fat that you don’t want. The Mask House Diamond Slimming Series Diamond V Fit Mask uses a “slimming band” to refine facial contours and promises to reduce the face by 1cm and increase firmness by 20%. I’ll say yes to that! One box contains 6 treatments and the slimming band. 

Ombre Lips For The Perfect Pout

Now for the makeup to contour and achieve the gorgeous Korean look! Two of the biggest autumn trends are ombre lips and hair shading. Ombre lips make the mouth appear gorgeously full, by applying a darker shade on the inner lips and gradually fading to a lighter shade. To try this trend out with a full pink pout, take two Christian Dior Rouge Dior Baume Natural Lip Treatment Couture Colour lipsticks. I love the combination of 558 Lili on the inner lips, fading out to 128 Star on the outer lips. With this product there is no need to choose between lipcare and makeup – in a single step, lips are revived in colours with a healthy glow and shine, and drenched in a protective nourishing lip treatment. The texture retains an incredibly fine consistency with flawless hold and lips are intensely smoothed, plumped and full. Perfect for this trend! 

Flawless Skin

Cushion foundation is the absolute must have Korean product. Based on traditional Korean royal court skincare formulas, The History of Whoo is revived with modern science to create the most precious aesthetic beauty products. Try the luxurious Gongjinhyang: Seol Radiant White Moisture Cushion Foundation SPF50+ / PA+++, with perfect coverage yet light texture and rich hydration for that smooth, dewy, glowing skin. The formula was developed to contain camomile extracts to brighten up dull skin and correct dark spots. 

Another awesome product to achieve the Korean makeup look is the innovation from SK-II. The Color Clear Beauty Artisan Brush Foundation Set is a cream compact set that provides radiant skin in one swipe while achieving full coverage. The Enamel Radiant Cream Compact features three-coloured swirls, each formulated using different extracts to enhance and care for skin.
The Beige layer contains Pitera™ and Vitamin E to help even out skin tone, the white layer incorporates Radical New Age™ Complex and Glycerin to provide anti-aging and hydrating benefits while the pink layer boasts lavender and gold pearls to enhance skin’s luminosity. Included in the compact is the Artisan Perfecting Brush, engineered with new micro-coverage brush technology, which evenly spreads a light layer of product across the face when applied in circular motions.

When used together, the duo works in harmony to create glowing skin and cover any imperfections including large pores. Who can say no to that? 

So, to keep your skin amazing, your face beautiful and your make up spot on trend it’s viva Korea!
