Looking perfectly beautiful is a priority for most South Korean women hence having well groomed hair and makeup is important to them to complete the beautiful face image.

This May, I am honored to be able to organize a Korean Styling Course with Korea OSAN University for a group of aspiring makeup artist. I want this course to allow the entire participating makeup artists to be able to learn the authentic Korean style hair and makeup styling and also it will be a great cultural exchange experiences. We were very fortunate to attend styling class at Korea OSAN University and this time round, we also have the opportunities to learn tons of styling techniques at the authentic Seoul Korean beauty salon of Professor Hwang who had done a lot of wonderful work for styles trends magazines.

Let me briefly share with you part of my learning experiences from makeup to hair styling.

[70% of a perfect make up consist of a good foundation setting]
Korean foundation strongly emphasize on achieving dewy and luminous skin hence most Korean women key concerns is hydrating and whitening. The key point to achieve the translucent luminous complexion is by using the layering technique of BB cream and CC cream or using air cushion foundation, to retain the natural translucent glow, only adequate amount of loose powder is used on correcting to allow the face appear to be flawlessly natural and retain the dewy feel. Unlike the popular warm complexion in other countries, Korean translucent radiance foundation complexion style give a youthful and vibrant feel!

[Setting your style with delicate details of your brow and eyes makeup]
Korean women are normally seen to be gentle and innocent childlike youthful image, it is partially due to their straights brows. There are an increasing numbers of self-proclaimed authentic Korean straight brows but most had either overdo the thickness or draw stiff shape brows. We are lucky to witness Professor Hwang live demo on drawing the authentic brows with gentle angle smoothing technique using layering and mixing of eyebrow powder and eyebrow pencil to achieve the gentle and natural gradation.

[Lip colors that enhances healthy skin color]
The up-coming lip color trend will be toward natural pinkish-orange tone and strawberry color which bring out healthy glow and youthfulness image!

[Korean natural hairstyle]
Deceivingly simple and natural hairstyles consist of real delicate and careful hairstyling techniques. Korean’s ways of hair blow and style, C curve hair iron tong, hair tie techniques, are very different from the usual styling techniques what Malaysia, Singapore and Taiwan stylists adapt and in amazingly fast speed too. A simple and elegant hairstyle required even more patient and thoughtfulness of the stylist to create a beautiful yet natural hairdo.

For those who seek beauty.
The emerged and growing Korean beauty trends had the beauty trends on lock. Dare to pursue the beauty in you and discover your inner and outer beauty with the latest Korean beauty trends!

 

韓國女人以追求完美為使命,從髮型到妝容,擁有一張完美的面孔廉,對於韓國女人來講非常重要。很榮幸和韓國烏山大學協辦造型師短期進修課程,當然不止學習正統韓風美妝造型,更是文化的交流.
這次我們不止到烏山大學上課,還去了首爾宏大黃教授時尚風格雅緻的沙龍,黃教授現今做過很多時尚雜誌的造型,讓我們學到了很多造型技巧.
從美妝到髮型的細節,讓我來和大家大致解說:)

「妝要化得好,粉底佔7成」
韓式底妝重視水潤透白,因此韓國女士們很著重保濕和美白,混合BB cream 和CC cream 或氣墊粉底,堆疊做出光透白亮點質感,為了保留透明度,只用少量蜜粉局部修飾,讓臉部的粉薄透均勻,保持肌膚水嫩感覺.那透亮的膚質會讓我們感覺活力光 彩,不同於其他國家喜愛的暖色調.
眉眼的小細節決定你的風格
韓國女生ㄧ般給予我們柔弱有女孩感的年輕氛圍.
某程度上建立於她們的ㄧ字眉.坊間很多自稱韓妝所畫的平眉,有些過份粗硬和區塊感.這次看到教授示範正宗韓式眉是角度平順且柔,用眉筆和眉粉自然混合,修飾出柔和順眼的層次.
自然凸顯健康膚色的唇彩
選對色調,時尚感倍增,可以選擇較自然的粉橘或草莓色,會帶出亮膚及好氣色.童顏感的唇妝就完成了.

韓式自然髮型
看似簡單,卻處處充滿巧思,韓式的吹整、C型夾、扎髮都和台灣、馬來西亞、新加坡手法大大不同,而且也非常快速!
簡單的髮型其實不簡單,其實越需要耐心及用心營造出來這自然線條.

給所有追求美麗的人
在近幾年韓流大興其道,不如選擇擁抱潮流,大膽的嘗試,你才能發現自己不同的美.
