[by Lim Mi Ae] We see more of early vacationers who enjoy their vacation early to avoid the large crowd of the travel season in June and July. For a more complete journey, it is imperative that you decide on the concept of your makeup before you leave.
When you take a vacation on the beach, you should consider that the area can be windy and make sure to create fresh and matte skin so your hair won’t stick to your face. If you are planning a healing trip in the city, you should use a beauty product that is light and long wearing enough so that it can stand against the hot weather.
Instead of boring nails, nail art is one of the simpler ways to change your moods, so it is good to get your nails done before going on a trip.
Is it possible to create non-greasy skin makeup?
There are non-greasy and matte foundations, but basically most foundation and BB products leave some greasy residue when it’s applied to the face. However, if you use a product that is labeled ‘oil-free’, the finish is too matte and you cannot see any shine or moistness at all.
The best item to eliminate the greasiness is powder. It clings between the pores to hold the oily ingredients and softens the skin. However, if you use a large amount of powder, it will emphasize the wrinkles and make it look cakey so control the amount you use.
One of the recommended methods is to use a thick and large brush. Apply a small amount of foundation on the brush and gently stroke so it barely touches your skin from the forehead to the chin. This will create a non-greasy and non-matte natural skin makeup.
How much do you care about your nails?
The fingernails soften in water, and the soft fingernails are more easily damaged and destroyed. Once a weakened or fibrous nail bed begins to breakdown, a vicious cycle begins and it is difficult to stop. The fingernail should only be treated when it is fully dried.
Cuticles should be soaked in warm water for less than 3 minutes before treatment. Never push or rip off the cuticles with your hands. Avoid using water with soap or detergent as it may dry the skin and damage the cuticle.
To make the nail art last for a long time, it is good practice to apply top coat every day. Before applying the polish, make sure you do not put oil or cream on your hands. Also, the layers including the base coat, color, and the top coat should not be too thick.
