My Daily Makeup Routine ♡

Recently several people have asked me what order should they put there make-up on?
It is different for everyone and their routine, BUT in order to help I’m just going to tell you mine!

Of course, I am not a professional makeup artist, it is just what I have heard and what I personally do.
I wash my hands first as I often use my fingers to apply and rub in the products on my face. This is my personal preference, but you can also use a beauty cushion or brush.

As you know I tend to have dry skin so first I put on All Around Safe Block Essense Sun Milk but Missha, this moisturizes my skin and protects it from the sun and it’s harshness during the day.

Next I put on Benefit The Porefessional Primer to set my face ready for makeup!

Then I use, The Seam Cover Perfection Tip Concealer as I have REALLY obvious bags under my eyes, which I rub in with my fingers.

After that I use the CareZone Nordenau Water BB Cream to smooth out my skin, again with my fingers.

Next I use A’Pieu Moist Creamy Concealer as an extra concealer to hide those under eye bags of mine. This I leave to go slightly dry before I rub in as it gives a more even coverage.

Then I go to my eyes, if I’m wearing eye shadow I put that on first… but for daily life I put on my Liquid Eyeliner, I use a normal eyeliner brush to line the lid of my eye and then I go over it with my MAC liquid eyeliner.

After that comes my eyelash curler which I use to just angle my lashes, I normally hold each eye for 30 seconds! When I do this properly (AKA not in a rush) everyone compliments me on how long my eyelashes are so would definitely recommend this step.

Next is my Etude House Curl Fix Black Mascara, which has instructions of use on the box for the specific brush; followed by the Etude House Dr Mascara Volume up Fixer (pink and white NOT green and white) which fixes my mascara on. This is perfect as my eyelids are hooded so my mascara tends to smudge off. Since using it my mascara never comes of… HOWEVER make sure to have a good eye makeup remover if you use this.

Finally, I apply my Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer which just evens out my makeup, gets rid of those smudges from my eye makeup mistakes and gives me that final smoothed out look.

I set my under eyes with Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Pact and then use Too Cool for School Perfect Day Makeup Fixer to keep my look throughout the day!

I’ll put a Too Long Didn’t Read Version (TLDR) on my website just in case you ever need it again.. I hope my makeup routine is able to help someone somewhere! ♡

Care Zone Doctor Solution Nordenau Water BB Cream♡

Well isn’t that a name and a half?! face-with-tears-of-joy.png

Today I will be reviewing the Care Zone Doctor Solution Nordenau Water BB Cream which can be purchased from Olive Young in Korea!

This BB cream is a necessity in my make-up box, I love the texture and it’s affect on my skin. I have used it for around a year and a half after one of my favorite beauty bloggers  recommended it.

BB is short so Blemish Balm so I use it as a way to make my skin smooth and add a layer of cover over my concealer which can look patchy. The cream does a fantastic job as it gives my skin a lovely shine; the finish is a little dewy but in my opinion that makes my skin look healthy.

The coverage is okay… I wouldn’t say it’s super long lasting, but that is why I use it as a base. It moisturises my skin and then kind of disappears which exactly what I want as my foundation is obvious enough.

One of the negative points of this BB cream is that it comes in only one colour. So unfortunately if you have darker skin this BB cream will not be available to match your tone. However, for Asian and pale skin tones I have heard great things by everyone that wears it, as it blends in well with your skin colour.

This formula is specifically for DRY-TROUBLED skin, which is why I love it. I have dry sensitive skin, which tends to get angry when my hormones are playing up. However, people that have oily skin, unfortunately this might not be the best fit for you.

I still think the BB cream could be useful for people with oily- troubled skin as the dewy finish does fade throughout the day. However, because I have dry skin I can’t give you the best recommendation. I would say try it and see how it goes!

I love this BB cream and think it is one of the best creams out there (it does not come in a cushion form). However, because of it’s lack of longevity and one colour I can’t give it a perfect 5, I give it a 4.5 out of 5!
