Korean “Layering Skincare” Routine [video]

I really do miss posting videos like this. Today I had some time on my hands and was pretty much watching wayyyy too much YouTube. But we all totally are benefitting from my lazy “I wanna watch YouTube” day.

I was in search on new skincare routine and I just decided to go to one of my favorite YouTubers NamiiCho and what do I find?? A skincare routine that might help me out! My acne is back with a vengeance. And with acne comes dry skin from acne treatments and scarring.

Fun times…

But hopefully this routine will help me. What do you guys think? And what are you using?



SISTAR’s So-you Skin Care Secret [video]

In lieu of a Foreign Language Tip post, since it won’t be back until October – November, I’ve decided to make this day “skincare/make-up” tutorial posts from… your favorite kpop idols and 네이버Naver celebs! Just for now, I think I’ll alternate between the two. And just a note, none of this is sponsored. I’m nowhere near popular enough for that! hahaha!

Personally, I know some people are actually interested in the products you personally use when you make these types of posts so I’ll tell you. My product list has changed dramatically after a really bad break-out these last two weeks so I’m hopeful that this will work. I use Neutrogena’s hydrating eye cream, witch hazel for toner, Neutrogena’s cleansing foam, and noxema for my acne. Not in that order. Though none of these products will be in the video, I’m sure you may find some that are useful. I definitely will be picking up a product or two after seeing this.

Make-Up Tutorials | Idol Edition! [video]

For those of us who love surfing through the web and YouTube to find new and different beauty tutorials, we usually seek out vloggers who are pretty well known. Ever so often we stumble across a new beauty guru who may introduce us to new techniques or products that we have never heard of before or show us a way to use what we already have more effectively.

But what about those vloggers who just so happen to be… Rainbow’s Jisook or maybe even SISTAR’s Bora? You never know who you’ll find on the net! I found this article on Soompi and I thought it was super cute and had to share it. Click the link to see the 10 other idol beauty gurus!

PONY Makeup | Natural Makeup Look

I debated on what to make this post…

I didn’t want to do another Weekend Kpop Update. With my internet pretty much down and I’m forced to use other means like my tablet or cell phone to blog, I didn’t really want to fight with the tabs and skipping and glitching that comes from trying to do too many things on portable devices.

And then it hit me… I haven’t highlighted a beauty vlogger in a while and thus my search began and landed on… PONY makeup. I don’t know why but I feel as if I’ve talked about her before. Maybe it’s because I’ve seen her videos from time to time. After watching her video, “Singapore Trip ‘get ready with me'” and then seeing all of her other videos and pictures (instagram| @ponysmakeup), I officially decided… it’s time to follow her. I think most of her videos are subbed but if you are new to her videos like me, check them out!

And for those learning Korean, watch the videos without the subs to see how much you understand and then turn the subs on to see if you were accurate or close.
