I'm Lily from Chloe.Ash Beauty Blog and I'm glad to be here to stand in for Sara just for today. I am a fellow beauty junkie from makeup to skincare. I have normal skin and I love my smokey eyes. I have hooded lids and it's a blessing in disguise because it takes A LOT for makeup to look especially dramatic on me. Today, let me show you what's trendy here in Asia, particularly Malaysia. We're mostly about clean beauty, that places a lot of emphasis on clear luminous skin. That's why brightening skincare is one of the top selling skin care here! The Hallyu wave is still going strong, and many people love straighter thick brows. To complete the minimal look, eyes are defined using liner and mascara and just a touch of eye shadow, and lipstick.
What I have done here is to show you 2 looks. One is something that is more acceptable, that is to have the eye liner drawn straight with natural looking lips, and another is a winged out liner with brighter lips. Here are the products used.
We want a flawless luminous base, but because the weather is hot and humid, powder is a necessity. I like my Dior Star foundation, and to cover any imperfection with the Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer. Powders usually mattify the whole look, but setting it with Guerlain Meteorites will magically give the complexion a subtle glow.
For the eyes, I chose a glittery eye shadow just for fun, and a long wearing liquid liner. The Dior corrector you see is a limited edition (sorry!) but it's great to correct any mistakes in liner application.
Lastly, here are the lip products I chose. I love my Dior lippies, and here are Rouge Dior Baume Garden Party for a natural looking pout, and Rouge Dior Brillant 888 Soho for a brighter pop of colour.
Here are the 2 looks I created. On the left, we have a very acceptable natural clean makeup and on the right, I added winged liner and a brighter pink on my lips. Still very wearable, but more playful as well. I used the eye shadows sparingly on my lids, and smudged some on my lower lash line for a brighter effect. Brows are kept as straight as naturally possible and the face, clean. I did add some blush but it's so subtle you can't really tell in the photos.
I hope you like the looks I created for you. If you have any queries, please feel free to ask in comments below!
