SKINCARE Clear and Moist Skin is Not Made Overnight
Celebrities who have very busy schedules pay special attention to skin care to keep their skin clear and healthy. Since skin does not change overnight, you need to dedicate time and effort for consistent skin care.
The first skin care step for healthy skin is ‘cleansing.’ Use a foam cleanser with fine foams to minimize irritation and get rid of makeup and skin impurities inside your pores. After cleansing, use a multi-item such as the all-in-one lifting cream with many functions to provide nutrition. If your skin is extremely dry, putting on a layer of oil serum as the last step of your skin care is a good idea for forming a moisture layer over your skin.

MAKEUP Add Clarity to Natural Three-Dimensionality
If you want your face to look slim and small like celebrities, don’t forget to use shading products and a highlighter. Apply shading products along your jawline, nose, and hairline, and apply a highlighter where you need volume, such as your forehead, bridge of the nose, jaw, and C-zone. If you use a multi-shading highlighter that is composed of three colors rather than one, you can expect a more natural contouring effect.
For a more defined look, continue on with eye makeup. If you want naturalness, skip drawing eyeliner. Applying a mascara on your eyelashes at the front and at the tip of your eyes will create well-defined eyelines without having to use an eyeliner.
Use a concealer to cover dark areas around your eyes and other dark spots on your face. Then use a lip tint to add liveliness to your face. If you use a tint that has bright colors and glossiness, starting from the inside of your lips and creating a gradation effect. Your makeup will become more-defined, three-dimensional, and natural.
