#2: Prime Your Face
|Smashbox Hydrating Foundation Primer|
This functions similarly to ampoules and it is hydrating. We did not develop any allergic reactions to the primer at all which is a good sign 🙂 Also, it makes our makeup last longer than intended.
#3: Apply Double Eyelid Tapes
#4: Apply Foundation
I have used the Shu Uemura’s lightbulb liquid foundation during my makeup trial earlier and am pleased that it blended well with my skin tone. Hence I continued to use that on my face.We applied the foundation onto our face using our hands as our hands have some warmth which can activate the ingredients in the foundation to make it adhere to our face better.

Leave the foundation on your face for it to dry up and set.
For a dewy finish, leave it as it is. For a matte finish, you may dust some loose powder on your face.
Conceal blemishes on your face including dark eye circles!
#6: Apply Eyeshadow Primer / Powder on Eyelids
This step is a must to prevent Panda Eyes afterwards.
#7: Apply Eyeliner on Lash Line
To achieve natural looking eyes, it is recommended for you to apply eyeliner along your upper lash line 🙂 Also, a soft pencil eyeliner (like KATE) is recommended for this.
#8: Apply Eyeshadow
Both Samantha and I are die-hard fans of the Coastal Scents Eyeshadow Palettes.This session taught us how to apply 2 tones of eyeshadows on our eyes without looking messy 🙂
Also, Cynthia shared with us her personal favourite for eyeshadow palettes – LUNASOL ~
|LUNASOL Eyeshadow Palette|
We liked the LUNASOL Eyeshadows as the powder is very fine and the pigmentation is comparable to Coastal Scents’ too! Not sure if they are priced as affordable as Coastal Scents’ Eyeshadow Palettes though…
One tip in applying eyeshadow is to use sponge tip applicators as they pick up the eyeshadow’s pigmentation better as compared to using makeup brushes.
And… sponge tip applicators are very cheap and durable too (easily obtainable from Daiso at SGD2!).
Curl your eyelashes and apply mascara.
I am personally in favour of the Love Alpha’s Fibre Mascara.
I have tried other similar mascaras like the Déja Vü Fibrewig one but nothing works as great as this in terms of lengthening and creating volume.

#10: Apply Falsies
Long eyelashes do open your eyes and they are very important although most of us including myself neglect this fact all the time…
|Comparison between having eyelashes and NOT…|
Having a good eyelash glue is very important if you want your falsies to adhere to your eyelids at all times under all circumstances.
|Cony using XYZ Brand of Eyelash Glue|
This glue is transparent and dries up clear. Hence it is super user-friendly for noobs like us :)Oh yes, you may curl and coat your falsies with a coat of mascara to ensure that it “glues” to your real eyelashes too.

#12: Apply Blusher

Yes, that is the only way to make your face appear more defined by applying shadows to areas you wish to hide and highlights to places you want to protrude. Makeup is all about the art of optical illusion 😀

Cynthia recommends using a foundation which is 2 shades darker than your usual for shading and white eyeshadow for highlighting.
ARGH.. I spent $$$ on buying a shader and highlighter loh 🙁 And they are both not cheap.
Yes, you may now apply your lip gloss / lipstick.As I used to have dry chapped lips, I am in love with Christian Dior‘s Lipstick range as they are creamy in texture and do not cause my lips to peel.

I chose to wear the Dior Addict Lipstick in 530 for that natural finishing.
This is the most time-consuming and difficult step. But.. It is the most crucial step as Korean Eyebrows are the soul to most korean makeups. They define you like no other ~
It is soooo difficult to draw eyebrows that will balance.
Notice the huge difference between having defined eyebrows and not having eyebrows?
