Trust us on this, her vast collection of makeup products is like a treat for your eyes.
Let's explore Azra's favourite Korean beauty makeup products and why they are her go-to's for a natural, effortlessly elegant look!
Hi BONIIK Beauties! It’s Azra from @themakeuptreasury on IG. I’m here today to share with you a K-Beauty makeup routine. It’s my go-to Springtime look featuring velvety textures and peachy- pink tones. I get a lot of my makeup inspiration from K-Beauty techniques, and I’d love to share some of those with you today…
I’ve used some gorgeous products here, available at BONIIK in my K-Beauty makeup routine and encourage you to follow along with me. Let’s get into the products I used!
CLIO Kill Cover Founwear Cushion All New SPF50+ PA+++ in shade 2.5 Ivory
If you’ve been following my page, you’d know that I suffer from acne and have the oiliest skin on the planet! While I do love my full coverage, super mattifying bases, I’ve been leaning more towards lightweight and breathable bases that still give me coverage and last all day, but don’t feel as heavy on the skin. After all, there’s nothing better than a face base that feels comfortable especially if you’ll have it on all day! No one has time for thick, cakey makeup!
I love a good cushion foundation, and this one is no exception. I like that it’s not overly dewy, but it’s not matte either. I find that a satin to natural finish lasts a lot longer on my oily skin, as long as I apply powder on top. My fellow oily skinned beauties out there will love this one!
My tip: apply with a dense buffing brush for more full coverage, or a stippling brush if you want lighter coverage. My favourite way is to blend this in with a buffing brush, and then smooth out any unblended areas with my fingers for a seamless finish.
CLIO Kill Lash Superproof Mascara in 02 Volume Curling
I love a good mascara. My eyelashes are naturally quite long, so I tend to prefer mascaras that add more volume rather than length to my lashes instead. This one hasn’t flaked or smudged on me. It’s one that I’ve been reaching for quite a bit lately!
CLIO Sharp So Simple Waterproof Pencil Liner in 02 Brown
I love a good brown eyeliner in the waterline! I especially need a waterproof one during the Springtime when hay fever is ever-present. This one seems to last quite a while before it starts to naturally fade a bit.
My tip: make sure you apply it only halfway down the waterline, and away from the tear duct. This makes my eyes appear bigger, brighter and more youthful. I love using this trick to look more awake!
PERIPERA Pure Blushed Sunshine Cheek in 03 Afternoon Red
Who doesn’t love a good blush!? This shade in particular is something so unique in my never-ending collection of blushes. It’s rich in pigment, so apply this one lightly!
My tip: the shade 03 Afternoon Red gives you that ‘sun-kissed’ look that’s been quite popular recently. Apply it lightly to the centre of the bridge of your nose (as well as your cheeks of course) to fool people into thinking you’ve spent the day having the time of your life at the beach (even though we’re in lockdown! A girl can dream…)
PERIPERA Ink Airy Velvet in #3 Cartoon Coral
A velvety lip product is one of my favourite types of lip products to use! The formula of this one is smooth, long-wearing and the prettiest shade for Spring and Summer!
My tip: pop some on a stippling brush and blend onto the cheeks as well for a monochromatic look.
PERIPERA All Take Mood Palette in 05 Whisper of Milky Spring
I’m a sucker for a good neutral eye shadow palette. I’m ashamed to admit how many I actually own… This is one that I’ve been reaching for a whole lot because the shades are very much up my alley, and they’re perfect for day-time wear or an office-appropriate look. These eyeshadow palettes are super cute, slim and offer a very flattering shade range. Perfect to pop in your makeup bag for when we’re all able to travel again!
PERIPERA Sugar Twinkle Glitter in 02 Sodapop Flakes
To top everything off and add a little fun to my makeup look, I’m finishing up with a fun glittery product! It’s 2021 and there are no more makeup rules in my opinion — so wear all the glitter!
Here’s my step-by-step routine so you can follow along:
- After you’ve done your skincare routine, apply a primer (I’d recommend picking one suited towards your skin type). I love a mattifying primer for my oily skin, so that’s what I go with.
- Apply your Kill Cover Founwear Cushion All New with a brush. I smooth it out with my fingers to make sure everything looks even. Set with a pressed or loose powder of your choice.
- Lightly dust some Pure Blushed Sunshine Cheek onto the high points of your cheeks, or in the centre of your cheeks for a more youthful look if that’s your preference.
- You can prime your eyes with some Kill Cover Founwear before going in with the All Take Mood Palette. Get creative, combine colours and have fun!
- Line your waterline halfway, moving from the outer corner to the middle (just below your pupil) with the Sharp So Simple Waterproof Pencil Liner.
- Curl your lashed if needed before you apply the Kill Lash Superproof Mascara. I prefer one coat, but you can easily do two coats of this mascara as it doesn’t look clumpy.
- In the mood for some extra fun? Add the Sugar Twinkle Glitter to the lower lash line!
- Finish off your look with the Ink Airy Velvet lippie!
I’ve been doing this look a lot and playing around with different colour combinations, because it’s something that is a part of my self-care routine and makes me feel more confident during such a hectic time in everyone’s life. I encourage everyone to do something a bit different, even if it means playing with a bit of makeup, discovering new things no matter how big or small, and just having fun.
I hope you enjoyed following along with my K-Beauty makeup routine! Thanks for reading.
