Korean Skin Care: Step 6 (part 3) - Masks - Blackhead Removing
Yo! Tonight's card will be on the shorter side but that is okay! I got Game of Thrones to watch lol. So let's get started! I'm going to continue talking about facial masks, but again it is a different type. This card will focus on masks that help to remove black heads. Many masks help to remove blackheads and reduce the size of your pores but with these, it's their primary purpose. If you missed a step please click the links below: Step 1: Boom Step 2: Sha Step 3: Ka Step 4: La Step 5: Ka Step 6 - Mud/clay masks: Fantastic Step 6 - Sheet Masks: Baby Again: If you are already tagged I will continue to tag you as these cards are created. If you want to be tagged for future cards please just leave a comment requesting it. Though if you are currently tagged and wish to be removed from the tag list, please let me know. Feel free to ask me questions about anything but my answers will mostly be experience/opinion based, I AM NOT A DERMATOLOGIST :P My 언니 @MichalJamerson will also make comments and she is also a great resource :) Also just an FYI, my skin type is very very sensitive that leans more toward the dry side. Now let's get started! ヾ(。・ω・)シ There aren't a whole lot of masks that are specifically meant for black head removal. With these masks you want to be careful though because they do take a lot of moister out of your skin. You don't want to do these types of masks too often. I use my blackhead removing masks maybe once a week but even that is a little too often for me. I more or less just keep an eye on my blackheads and if I decide it needs done then boom done. Here are some tips for using these masks: 1. Make sure your skin isn't too dry before using this. Though you don't want to moisturize right before you use the mask either. 2. Steam your face prior to using. The way I do this is I take a wash cloth, get it wet, microwave it for like 30 seconds, and then gently put it on my face and let it sit for a little while. Be careful not to burn your face. If it feels too hot, don't put it on your face, be smart please lol. Steaming your face helps to open your pores so it is easier for the mask to grab all of that gunk out of there. 3. Once you have finished steaming your face put on your mask as instructed. I won't spend a whole lot of time on these because many of us have heard of these. I started using these when I was about 12? I still use them today. I really believe these help a lot and they remove a good amount of blackheads. I haven't really noticed a difference between the regular and the charcoal activated strips but I still use both. The only think I have noticed is that the charcoal ones leave a residue after use and it is a little annoying. These strips are also really easy to use and they don't take as long as the actual mask I have. So when I'm in need of some quick pore care, these are my go to. Because they are so incredibly basic they don't irritate my skin or cause any issues. If you are wanting to try these and you haven't then you can pick them up at your local pharmacy or grocery store. They are pretty easy to find :) I honestly don't know the name of this mystery black head removing mask. I just so happen to find a youtuber I watch often using it and thought, "why not" so I bought it. It is 100% in Chinese. There is English translated instructions but the translation is such broken English it's really funny. In order for me to figure out how to properly use this I turned to youtube. When I used this product finally I didn't have as many blackheads removed as a lot of people did who have used it. Maybe I don't have as many blackheads as I think I do or I am using it wrong still. I still try to use it from time to time but I just don't get crazy results like some people get. I like this product well enough but it is messy and hard to use. I say it is hard to use because actually applying it to your face is difficult. The product is really really tacky. If you are interested in trying this product out go for it! It is really fun to try but that all depends on how experimental you are. If you are wanting to try it click here The last one I want to talk about is by Diaso I really liked this one. It was easier to use and I seemed to have better results. With this product you want to make sure apply a thick layer onto your skin. It isn't suggested that this is a full face mask but, I still use it that way. It does take a long time to fully dry, about 40 minutes. This mask will also remove hairs from your face. Little hairs that no one sees on your face but because it does it can be really painful. If you are sensitive to that kind of thing just be aware. With this mask I didn't notice any further break outs or anything so that was good but it does dry out your skin. Some masks have aloe vera in them but this one doesn't. You will want to make sure to moisturize well after using it. The mask also doesn't leave a film on your face after using, but it is still a good idea to rinse off the area that you use this mask on. If you are interested in purchasing this product, click here Well that concludes tonight's card guys! With these kinds of masks you will get varying results and they aren't for everybody. I wouldn't say this step is essential to my routine because I have gone a month without doing this step, it's just something nice to do every once in a while. Of course, these are my own opinions/experiences with these products. Feel free to ask questions but remember I'm not an expert Next time: Part 6 continues haha Moisture Masks (will be shorter) Tags ヽ(〃・ω・)ノ @AdreannaLyn @russelroche47 @BetseyBleau @FalseLove @shelby101 @SimplyAwkward @RebeccaLondon @cue2pal @MichalJamerson @unnieARMkeY @MariRubi @JackieG1617 @IsoldaPazo @QueenLee @Elioritz13 @LemonLassie @angiey0222 @DulceOjeda @KaitlynHewitt @EXOAsf @AmariAlexander @SeventeenBias @amethystiperez @BonnieYuen @shelby101 @DenieceSuit @SatinSkies @KierstinAndrews @DenieceSuit @takenbykpop @PatriciaS @aliahwhbmida @Badtz @AlisonYui @ammagrande @EWillsea @EverieMisfit
Basic of Hair Coloring: Level, Shade, & Tone
Hey guys, I'm back again to discuss more on ombre hair. I will not cover the basics here, so if you're interested you can refer to this card for basic terminology and this card on the trending highlighting terms. Today, I will be covering the basic of hair color. I will be using ombre hair as an example. The chart below is by talented hair colorist Larisa Love. It shows the ombre level from light to dark. Please keep in mind certain tone seem darker than others. Every eye is different, so is every shade. Licensed hair color are trained to see exactly what level the color is. Level The first thing hair colorist analyze before jumping in to suggesting a hair color. This refers to the lightness or darkness of a color. In each color family there is light, medium and dark. Ex: light blonde, medium blonde and dark blonde. Generally, black is either level 1 or 2. The lightest blonde is the highest level. Dark ---> Light Shade This simply means how light or dark a color is. For instance, everyone heard of 50 shades of gray. Within the color grey, there are lighter and darker variations. The chart above displays the base shade added to ombre hair. Tone This is the finishing touch of a shade. It defines the warmth or coolness. You probably heard your hair colorist talking about warm, neutral or cool tone. No matter what your level of color, you can choose from a variety of tones to help you achieve your color transformation. Once you get this all memorized mixing your own formula will be a breeze! Also, questions are always welcomed! Feel free to comment below.
5 Designer Shoe Brands You'll Drool Over
Some people love handbags, others jewelry. Some people are obsessed with dresses and others with accessories. My obsession is shoes. If you want more information you can check the cards here, here and here for references. It hasn't always been this way. I used to collect jackets, trying to emulate the styles of my favorite rock stars. Now, since my size has been changing, hopefully trending downward, I have been looking for something more consistent. For the most part your shoe size doesn't change. Yes, your feet swell up at night and are a bit smaller in the morning, but for better or worse, you'll always know what your size is. Here are my favorite designer brands, and for better or worse they're expensive, luxurious and utterly chic. 1. Manolo Blahnik Behold, blue satin Manolo Blahnik Hangisi pumps. These are probably one of the most iconic pairs of shoes on the planet, considering they were Carrie Bradshaw's wedding shoes. No designer got a bigger bump from Sex and the City than Mr. Blahnik who continues to be a classic, classy choice for all kinds of women today. I am the proud owner of three pairs, of course the Hangisi isn't one of them, but I do own a pair of Carolyne slingbacks! 2. Christian Louboutin This pair of shoes is called the Pigalle. It is the quintessential style for professional, stylish women of today. It's a dream of mine to own a pair. I tell my friends that I'll know I've made it when these shoes are on my feet. Legend has it that Christian Louboutin made the bottoms of his shoes red as a tribute to prostitutes in France who'd have to traipse through the meat packing districts of France to meet their johns. Blood stained the bottom of the shoes, giving them this signature look. 3. Sam Edelman Many call Edelman the "it" flat. Besides Tori Burch this designer is definitely most known for its comfortable and stylish designs. You won't catch a young Hollywood starlet without a pair of these. At a more modest price point than the first two designers it's not uncommon to catch a pair on sale. Don't get me wrong, the pumps are amazing too! 4. SJP Collection I included this brand because well, I have a soft spot for Sarah Jessica Parker. I partly blame her for my shoe obsession, because like many others before me I was introduced to the beauty of a well made shoe from Sex and the City. Her shoes are gorgeous, and the line is expanding to flats and lower height heels this Fall. The signature bit on this shoe is a grosgrain running up the back seam of the shoe. It's sort of like Louboutin's red bottom, except you can see it really well. Gorgeous designs for all occasions. My favorite style, of course is the "Carrie". 5. Guiseppe Zanotti This is the modern designer you have to know about. He's on every red carpet imaginable and the current and edgy designs have everyone talking, fashion conscious or not. His innovative designs have been seen on Rihanna, Kanye West and more. Look out, because his white pumps and guilded designs like the one above are the most desired look out there.
Kbeauty Spotlight: Try It Tuesdays
Kbeauty lovers UNITE! This is your favorite chica Jessamine aka @amobigbang here to bring you the latest tea on a hot trending Kbeauty product. Last week we discussed Korean face sheet masks. Did anyone try them yet? This week let's look at cushion makeup. None of these images or videos belong to KpopINT Writer Jessamine aka Social Media Event Organizer/Planner aka @amobigbang Tagging the head chairs: @bbyitskatie @MichelleIbarra And tagging the rest of the fam: @xoxrlwoxo @LenaBlackRose @daniimals @Gaarita100 @ILikeHisFace13 @tayunnie @amobigbang @Sailynn @reyestiny93 @Elaynethtrumpet @JohnEvans @ParkHwaYoung @Stefany17 Cushion foundations are so popular for a few reasons. Firstly, it gives you that flawless look with less makeup. Secondly, the formula feels so good on the skin. Most Korean cushion foundations have SPF which is good for the skin. Thirdly, it is good for sensitive skin. Fourthly, the packaging is very sensible for traveling and moving around. There are so many Korean brands out there with cushion foundations. Here are some brands and their prices. Amore Pacific Color Control Cushion Compact Broad Spectrum SPF 50+, $60, Sephora. This one is for fair to medium skin tones. IOPE Air Cushion Sunblock XP [SPF 50+/PA+++], $38, Sokoglam Laneige BB Cushion, $34, Target The shade range is from super fair to deep dark. This one comes in light shades to tan shades. "You can grab one of these compacts if you have anywhere from an apricot to a tan complexion" (2016, Yong) For more information click on this link source. This is a good review on Iope cushion foundation. This is a review on Innisfree cushion foundation. This video reviews many of the popular Korean makeup brands. They now have cushion foundations for a matte finish if you are wanting that look since Korean cushion foundations usually give you a dewy look. The only issue is that this brand does not carry shades for tan or deeper complexions. Deeper Complexions I know that this is mainly for KBeauty items however, if you are a chocolate bunny like me or if your shade falls into the tan-deep range as a dupe I recommend MAC Matchmaster Shade Intelligence Compact. I paid $33.00 for mine. Their formula and compact design is inspired by Korean cushion foundations. I love Korean cushion foundation. I love that my skin can look flawless without looking like have on makeup and that my skin doesn't feel like I'm wearing a mask when I use this foundation. These foundations can be pricey. This video shows you how to make your own cushion foundation.
