Our perfect weekend combines the best of two worlds: sheet masks and Noah Centineo movies (are you swooning too?). K-Beauty experts have blessed our lives with innovative, lightweight skincare products, and it's almost impossible to pick a favourite. And, if you weren’t spoilt for choice already, we have a new Korean brand to obsess over Etude House. Chances are, you’ve heard of it and it's been on your wishlist since you heard the term ‘K-beauty’ for the first time (us too, sister). Launching today, the affordable skincare and makeup brand offers a range of products for your face, eyes and lips. You can't imagine our reaction when we got our hands on their entire collection. Needless to say, we tried many looks and the one that won the team's vote was the dewy one. Read on for the different Korean skin care tips and how to use Korean skin care products from Etude house.
Scroll down to see how you can play with the best of Etude House to get the look.
1. Skin Prep
We have said it before and we’ll say it again moisturize before you apply makeup. You’ll love this routine even more with the Etude House Moisture Collagen
and eye cream
. After cleansing your face, gently massage the emulsion on your face. It’s hydrating formula combines three unique ingredients like aqua stream complex, super collagen water and baobab oil all of which gives the emulsion its jelly-like texture. Follow it up by applying the eye cream around the eyes and on the eyelids. With super collagen water and baobab tree essence, the long-lasting cream is perfect for dry and sensitive skin. After your face and eyes, your lips could use some TLC too. Revitalize those lips with the Honey Jelly Lips Patch.
Cherry, hyaluronic acid and collagen in this mask is what you need to volumize and hydrate your lips, giving them a fuller, plumper look. And, who even minds the lip patch selfie for the ‘gram, right?
2. Prime & Proper
Now that your skin is feeling healthy and moisturized, it’s time to prime it. Gently apply the Glow On Base Oil Volume
all over for a natural, glowing effect. And believe us when we say that this product is a treat. It contains 24k gold particles that will brighten your skin, giving it a radiant glow.
