anonymous asked:

do you guys know of any korean/asian makeup brands/products that would be good for darker/tanned skin? thank you!

Notes: 

  • Some brands mentioned below have physical stores / counters in my country (marked with *). I’ve personally swatched and compared their shades to MAC Studio Fix Fluid shades. 
  • However, please note that the corresponding MAC shades are just approximation and may not be 100% accurate due to lighting, oxidation etc.
  • I also included links to videos / pictures for skin tone references. 
  • The availability of shades may vary depending on where you live.
  • r/AB also has spreadsheets of Korean base products and similar MAC shades.

Japanese brands:

  • The one that i’ve personally used is Shu Uemura Face Architect Smooth Fit Fluid Foundation. It’s a good foundation for people who have oily skin and sustained well under hot humid climate. Coverage is medium-full. The shades are pretty diverse and they have shades for all undertones. The ones that were sold in my country at least had the equivalents of NC42. The deepest shade they have is 504, which is quite similar to MAC NW50. (swatches934, 754734, 554524)
  • Sadly…………… Face Architect has been discontinued earlier this year and was replaced by Shu Uemura Petal Skin Fluid Foundation * (though i think you can still find Face Architect online). Petal Skin has fewer number of shades than Face Architect but the colors are not much different imo. Mind you that all 7xx shades are very yellow. The darkest for the yellow undertone is 744, which is very similar to NC42. 754 is quite similar to NC40. (754)
  • Shu Uemura The Lightbulb * (dewy finish) has the same range of colors as Petal Skin, but theirs are just slightly lighter than Petal Skin. For example Lightbulb 744 is a liittle bit lighter than Petal Skin 744, but it’s similar to Petal Skin 754. (swatches, 744, another 744754554)
  • Lunasol * and Kate (both are from Kanebo) also have base products in medium shades. However, their color range is more limited than Shu Uemura and Shiseido. Undertone is rather neutral/pink. Their darkest shade is similar to NW35 / NC42 (OC-04OC-G
  • RMK Liquid Foundation is quite popular in Japan (so does its creamy foundation). Judging from the pictures the shade 105 looks similar to NC42 (?). They also have one deep shade with cool undertone which is Coffee Brown (104, 105Coffee Brown), 

Korean brands:

  • Sulwhasoo Perfecting Cushion * also has medium/tan shade. The price is on the expensive side compared to other cushions. Shade 33 is quite similar to NW35 / NC42. Neutral undertone, just slightly pink. (no.33)
  • VOV Maxmini Cover Cushion * offers medium/deep shade as well. Shade 33 is similar to NC37-40, while shade 43 is similar to NC42-45. Neutral/peach undertone. But unfortunately i think this product isn’t available outside of SE Asia… (no.33, no.33 as base and no.43 as bronzer)
  • Amore Pacific is another high end cushion that has medium/tan shade (and it costs $60-80 byeeee). I think the shade 208 is slightly lighter than Sulwhasoo’s 33? Not sure about the undertone. Also available at Sephora. (208, also 208)

Hope this helps,

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF CONTOUR ALEXA GOD DAMMIT WHY IS EYELINER NECESSARY WHY DO EYEBROWS NEED TO BE FILLED WHY SO MANY LAYERS OF FACE COLOURED CREAM WHAT IS LIP LINER AND WHY IS IT NECESSARY DO PEOPLE CONTOUR THEIR EARS WHY DO PEOPLE ONSESS OVER THE PERFECT RED LIP ABD SMOKY EYE AND WHY PRAY TELL DO VEINS LOOK GREEN

Prepare yourself, this is long.

1.) Contour: To accentuate your features. You can place a brown color that is a few shades darker than your natural skintone in the hollows of your cheeks, your temples, above your forehead to make your face seem smaller, various places on your nose depending on the look you want - although my nose is impossible to contour I’ve been trying for a year - , the crease of your eyelids (thats just eyeshadow dont worry), and your jawline. 

Tips: If you're just starting to wear makeup and want to contour then use a shade that isn’t too dark. It’ll be easier to blend into to your skin. Personally, I don’t use bronzers like a lot of people do (bronzers make you tan) to contour because I don’t like the look. I actually use a gray toned brown, which will make some people shriek but I feel like it looks like more of a natural shadow.

What Do I Use:
I use an LA COLORS Brow Palette from ROSS $7???(we’re on a budget okay)

Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4qsLJArkAe4

2.) Eyeliner: Eyeliner is not necessary. Makeup is not necessary. It’s just hella fun. The usual way to do eyeliner is to make your eyes pop. Like a thin line on the top of your lids, close to your lashline, or tight lining your eyes. (tight lining in putting eyeliner on your lash line. like that thing in movies where they make a weird face and put stuff right on their upper and/or lower lash line.)

Tips: If you have a paler complexion, use brown for a natural look or black for a more prominent look. For deeper skintones, I would recommend dark browns and blacks. If ya feelin’ risky, pop some color on your waterline. I use pink because I have greenish eyes and it makes then more…..there.

What Do I Use?:
Essence Super Fine Felt Tip Liner $3 (waterproof formula is bomb af but use powder on oily lids before applying or it will bleed, if you do that it stays all damn day.)

Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1kg0fWCGBhA

3.) Eyebrows: The trend is to have fuller eyebrows. While I already have full brows, they just kind of…. go everywhere. So I give them a shape. Sometimes it’s a dark and dramatic arch, or sometimes it’s a soft straight brow. Depends on the natural shape of your brows and how you like them.

Tips: Unless you dye your hair black, don’t use black for your brows. I dye my hair the blackest black I can find and I still use a dark gray. For beginners, try a pencil or brow gel first. Brow gels are light mascaras but for your brows. They hold the shape in place, give the hairs color, and/or make ya eyebrows look fuller.

What Do I Use?:
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz (pencil) in Granite $21
NYX Pomade in Black $7

Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_DoXCvp5a3g

4.) Face-Colored-Cream aka Foundation: This is used to even out your skintone. It comes in several forms: Liquid, Cream (thicker form of liquid, often gives fuller coverage), and Powder. There is also a thing called concealer, which is more pigmented foundation that you can use on places your foundation doesn’t cover. If you wear foundation, then consider one for your skin type. Matte helps oily skin and luminous helps dry skin.

Tips: Have someone else match your foundation/concealer you know has experience with makeup and can help you get the perfect match. I go with friends or a beauty store will always have someone to help you. I haven’t done this in particular, but if you bring foundations you already have or samples to someone working to counter at a beauty store, they will probably help match you. Hopefully.

What Do I Use?:
MAC Studio Fix in NC15 $27 (Matte but not matte enough for this oil slick)
Maybelline Dream Cushion in Porcelain $13 (Luminous but not dewy)
Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless in Porcelain $8 (Matte and actually helps my skin)
Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer in Light Pale $6
NYX HD Studio Photogenic in 4.5 $7
Rimmel Stay Matte Powder $5
Cody Airspun in Translucent $5 

I HAVE OILY SKIN BTW SO THOSE ARE GOOD FOR OILY SKIN!!!!

Link for Deep Skin: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fbX5ETj4sXQ

4.) Lip Liner: Honestly, lip liner just helps map out the shape of your lips so it’s easier to fill them in with lipstick. I use it to slightly overdraw my lips for a fuller affect.

Tips: You don’t have to use this. Just find a shade that matches your lipstick and go. I sometimes use lip liner over my entire lips and put a balm over it. Acts like a stain.

What Do I Use?:
Loreal Infalliable line of Lip Liners $3
NYX Suede Lip Liners $5

5.) Ear Contouring: Is a thing that practically no one does cause it’s literally just concealing the redness in your ears. No clue why they called it contouring. I will not leave a link for this because I think it’s stupid.

6.) A red lip and smokey eye are classics in the beauty community so of course, everyone wants to be good at them. I actually hate red on me so I can’t help you there. Also, I don’t do natural smokey eyes.

Tips: Blend. If you think you’re done, you’re wrong. Keep blending.

Link for Intense Smokey Eye: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dF_iBT4KgvM
Link for Red Lip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I104Fof_Kwo

7.) Undertones: A good way to understand your skin’s undertones is to look at your wrist and see if your veins are blue, green, or in between. Blue means cool toned, Green means warm toned, in between mean neutral. Having a foundation that matches your undertone really helps it blend into your skin and appear natural and flawless. That method is not always accurate btw, so it’s a good idea to have a professional or ya local trash for beauty help you out.

Resenha desses produtinhos maraaa, super acessíveis,e qualidades ótimas!

Começando pelo corretivo da Bruna Tavares! A minha cor é BT30, porém comprei a cor errada BT40, gente esse corretivo é incrivelmente perfeito, sério, ele é bem parecido com o da Nars, cobre super bem, e deixa um aspecto matte, super lindo, não vivo mais sem, melhor produto no mercado nacional. Ps: Produtos da Bruna Tavares, são os melhores, sou fã da marca. Sou suspeita pra falar, mas podem comprar sem medo.

Corretivo da Ruby Rose, admito que me espantei um pouco com a qualidade do produto, comprei por curiosidade, e sério, ele cobre bastante, e ilumina super bem, a minha cor é a 02, comprei bem clarinho para iluminar. Ps: usem sempre um corretivo um tom mais claro que sua pele, pois dá um aspecto de iluminado, e destaca as partes do rosto. 

Base Matte da Ruby Rose, minha cor é L3. Assim como o corretivo da marca, me espantei também com a qualidade dessa base, vi muitas resenhas que falaram super mal dessa base, mas comigo, gente, ela é incrivelmente boa, deixa uma pele super linda, e não fica com aspecto ‘’reboco’’, e o cheirinho dela é de perfume, nada enjoativo, adorei mesmo, ela é matte, e durou bastante em mim. Não aconselho pele seca usar essa base, porque vai craquelar e marcar linhas de expressão. Comprem essa base e se jogue. o preço dela é mais incrível ainda.

Base Tracta, minha cor é a 04. a famosa base ‘’pele de porcelana’’, sim, ela tira todas imperfeições do rosto, cobre tudinho mesmo, particularmente, vou dar minha opinião negativa do produto, tem que usar um primer antes, porque ela marca muito os poros, linha de expressões, então recomendo usar um primer antes da aplicação, mas toda base tem que passar o primer. Outro ponto negativo pra mim, foi o cheiro, achei um pouquinho forte, eu tenho rinite, e isso me incomodou muito. Mas com o tempo no rosto, a base se oxida, e o cheiro vai sumindo, nada que atrapalhe. Ela é a base da vida, que cobre tudo e dispensa o uso de corretivos, essa base é similar a da Mac studio fix, em termos do cheiro e cobertura. Durabilidade não posso falar ainda, pois usei ela poucas horas. Mas se tu quer uma cobertura power, se joga nessa. 

Obs: Voltarei com tudo a pedidos de vocês no meu instagram @andrezaklerch. Espero que tenham gostado dessa resenha, em breve terá mais.

This is my two-toned Blue eyeshadow look, perfect for the Prom season, a special occasions or just an evening out.
The spotlight technique is great way to make your eyelids look bigger and wider, it draws attention to the middle of lid due to the lighter reflective colour used.
