With the festive season around the corner, everyone want to look gorgeous, presentable and festive. I’ve come up with 3 easy Korean Makeup Look that is perfect for any celebratory occasion!

1. Rose Gold Chick

Rose gold has been trending for a relatively long time in all parts of world - from rose gold hair colour to the latest rose gold hues for makeup. Rose gold is just everywhere!

For this look, I gave Marilyn a beautiful rose gold hues over her face subtlety.


 

For this look, eye makeup is the focus. Blend 2 different shades of rose gold over the eyelids, as well as the bottom of the waterline. Since the emphasis of this look is in its rose gold hues, it is important to line your eyes as rose gold lids alone may cause your eyes to appear puffy.



Eyes: Urban Decay Naked Palette 2 (Dust & Burntout) + MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Liner (line the eyelids and waterline) + Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Dime (For the inner corner of the eyes) + Dolly from Rachelle B. Eyelashes

Blush: Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush in Fetching

Contour: MEMEBOX Contour Powder No.2 (apply on jawline, temple and nose to achieve natural and more defined features)

Highlight: Fenty Beauty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter Duo in Ginger Binge/Moscow Mule (apply slightly above cheeks, forehead and chin)

Lips: Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer in Shimmering Rose Nude (match this looks with a super trendy rose gold lip colour for kissable lips)

Hair: A messy half bun is one of the go-to-hairstyle for most Korean girls in 2017 and the trend will be ongoing to 2018. Simply curl your hair with a large thong, separate the top and bottom of your hair and tie the top portion into a bun!

2. Sweet In Pink

Korean makeup lies in its simplicity and creating a natural dewy look.



We can still enjoy a night of celebration looking natural and gorgeous at the same time. For this look, I gave Susan some gold hues with a pop of pink lips and cheeks!
 



Eyes: Shu Uemura Pressed Eyeshadow in Gold 311 + Urban Decay Heavy Metal Gel Glitter + MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Liner (line the eyelids and waterline) + HEROINE MAKE Super Waterproof Volume & Curl Mascara (for the bottom lashes) + Natural from Rachelle B. Eyelashes

Hair & Outfit: I gave Susan relatively straight but Korean curled bottom hair for her big night out. Its effortless, classy and matches every outfit that she wants to wear. You can also choose to go with a tight high ponytail for more oomph. Complete with a basic black top, matched with jeans, leather jacket and a gold choker!

3. The K-Pop Queen

Festive season is the best time to be adventurous!



Slay it this Christmas with the Korean smokey look. The Korean smokey look is relatively different from the typical American smokey look. The skin is still kept natural but the emphasis is on the eyes, contour and lips.



For this look, I‘ve used a gorgeous burgundy purplish black tone for the eyes matched with a dark burgundy lip colour. Complete the look with a party dress and you are ready to rock the night!
