    {I love meeting new people, and Eunice is just one of the bloggers I’ve recently gotten to know. She’s based in Malaysia, which is so close by, but what draw anyone to her blog are her tips on shopping in Korea. Woo hoo! You can head over to her blog, Pretty Little Petite, to read all about her travels. In this entry, find out what her tips are on how to start a skincare routine.}


    TSS: You recently travelled to Korea. What are your favourite Korean beauty trend and beauty tip?

    E: As the hallyu or Korean wave hits foreign shores, Korean skincare trends have also taken the world by storm, infiltrating both Asian and Western markets and influencing beauty routines and skincare regimens. Most Korean skincare products are known for utilising natural ingredients in their formulation, suiting Asian skin types. I really love how brands like Skin Food and Innisfree creatively categorise their product ranges according to the natural ingredients.

    As for Korean cosmetic trends, I love their lip tint and cushion products! Korean lip tints are minimalistic and long lasting, and they are usually presented in sweet and elegant colours. Lip tints do a great job in completing my daily makeup look. I like the cushion concept that the Koreans have incorporated in their beauty products, which produces a more evenly distributed and lightweight application. Aside from the highly raved BB cushion compact, you may even get cushion cream blushers and cushion lipsticks.

    My all-time favourite beauty tip is hydration, which is always the key to beautiful and supple skin. As I have oily skin, hydration is important to maintain the moisture balance of my skin and reduce sebum production.

    Most Korean beauty products have hydrating properties. Sleeping masks or sheet masks are the best ways to achieve a quick hydration boost for your skin. I like how Koreans utilise facial masks as a daily essential in their skincare routine. Facial masks are practically everywhere in Korea and they are very affordable. Personally, I have tried using sheet masks every day for a week and it does show great results on my skin.
