Updated #Skincare and #Makeup Must Haves

Annyeong, cinggu!🤗

You ought to know I’m a skincare addict 🙋🏻, and I take inspiration from my Korean drama stars. Fangirl forever. Their glowing skin ✨, oh how I love and covet thee. So dramatically, the bar is set so high with the Korean drama goddess as benchmark, so on plain sight, it looks like I’m so vain with all these skincare I use. Ha. Through the years, of several hits (here and there), my precious skin takes a lot of work. It takes commitment to do the 7 and 8 and 9 and 10 skincare steps. Proudly, more often than not, I stay committed.

Here’s my updated skin care routine. Innisfree remains my mainstay go-to Korean Beauty Care brand. (I’m missing my oppa, Lee Min Ho, and my motherland). What’s new is Shiseido, which surprisingly I only met in the USA. 🤦🏻‍♀️ I should have hoarded last time when we went to Japan. Oh well.

#Skincare After cleansing, I slather and layer thee:
Innisfree Bija Trouble Skin | Shiseido Ibuki Softening Concentrate and Shiseido Ultimate Power Infusing Concentrate, both I need to replenish and will remain regular Step 3 and 4 in my routine | loving Innisfree Soybean Energy Cream, which is perfect for the cold weather, when summer comes, I can revisit getting the serum again. | Juice Beauty Green Apple Brightening Eye Cream | Lucas’ Papaw is love, and I can’t live without it. 

I ought to dedicate a post for Lucas’ Papaw. Truly, I can’t part with it. Thank goodness for Amazon. I use it as lip balm at night, pre-lipstick application, and for everything else it says it does…Breakouts, rashes too.

Magical Lucas’ Papaw🤩

Now on to my easy peasy, everyday makeup.

Benefit Cosmetics Cheek Parade | New is Shiseido Tinted Suncscree | KPalette Eyebrow Tint | Kanebo Kate Eyeliner (forever favourite) | Lucas’ Papaw
Shiseido Urban Environment Tinted UV Protector No. 2. I love, love, love thee. It replaces my BB Cream and Cushions for now. I used it to manage my breakouts from last time, when I had to limit what I use, works as a sunscreen and foundation in one. This had me at hello. 
I have a bias for Korean and Japanese brands except for Benefit Cosmetics, which is my go-to US brand. And more brownie points for it since I’m staying in San Francisco. The Rockateur, I’m using it for the season for that subtle dewy glow. Last summer, it was Galifornia for me. 
#FOTD I wish I woke up like this. Haha. I never did a dedicated post for the Kanebo Kate Spider Liner, which I can’t live without and I hoarded in Japan. This replaces my love for the Kanebo Kate Pencil Liner.

First, beautiful skin, then makeup. Plus a lot more. Haha. Sleep, nutrition, exercise, and a whole lot more. Unless you’re a natural goddess, bless you. Hmmm, now that I reflect, I don’t sleep (because of Korean drama marathon), what exercise (wine counts, right?!) and I’m on yo-yo diet forever. So yes, I only have the skincare routine and makeup. Wish me luck. Cheers! 🍷
