Summer Primers

For summer choose a primer that can mattify your skin as well as has sunscreen in it! This will protect you from the damaging sun raise and help keep your make up from sliding off your face. It will help control the shine. Try some of these primers for summer! I’m using a glowy primer to add some radiance to my face!

Try MAC Prep + Prime Face Protect SPF 50 - 30ml/1oz:

Winter Primers

In winter your skin can get so dry and flakey! This can cause makeup to catch on the edges of your dry skin so try a hydrating primer to help keep your skin moisturised and your makeup moist looking. I’m using this moist pore balm as my base so the makeup goes on so silky smooth.

Try: A'pieu Moisture Pore Cover Balm


Summer Foundation

I’m applying my foundation from the centre of my face then blending it out. There’s no need to apply the same thickness of foundation all over your face. This keeps your foundation light but covers the priority areas like your t zone allowing your natural skin to shine through. I’m using this long wear cushion foundation that is perfect for summer. 

You can even skip the concealer if you can but if you really need it apply the thinnest layer to your problem areas to prevent creasing. I’m using a waterproof concealer formula to help it stay on during the heat.

Try: Innisfree . Long Wear Cushion Spf50:
Try: MAKE UP FOR EVER Full Cover Concealer

Winter Foundation

I’m using a moisturising full coverage foundation. Hydrating formulations are perfect for winter and clean flawless skin looks perfect with the winter makeup hues.

Try: Amore Pacific Iope Air Cushion-xp Cover #21
Try: MAKE UP FOR EVER Full Cover Concealer


Summer Contouring

A light matte powder contour is the perfect texture for summer contouring because it creates a great chiselled look underneath the warm bronzes! I’m contouring underneath the cheekbones, the forehead and my nose! Forehead contours are great if you’re going to wear your hair up.

Try: MAC Sculpting Powder Pro Palette BONE BEIGE

Winter Contouring

Using a stick cream formulation works so well in winter. I’m using a slightly warmer contour shade to warm up the skin tones for winter. I’m blending the lines with a beauty blender into your skin. You don’t want a harsh contour so use your cushion foundation to blend the contour lines in to create a subtle look.

Try: Maybelline New York Fit Me! Oil-Free Stick Foundation, 330 Toffee


Summer Brows

Gel formulations are perfect for summer brows as they don’t budge in the heat! I’m using my favourite eyebrow pomade for this step. Apply this naturally to your brow shape and finish off with a brow gel to keep your hairs in place!

Try: Dipbrow Pomade - Taupe
Try: The Face Shop Lovely MeeX Color My Brow 6ml Grey Brown

Winter Brows

You really can’t go wrong with this combo so I’m doing the same for my winter makeup! This is also the perfect time to play with bold arched brows if you like but I like to keep my brows natural and straight all year round - I’m boring like that!

Try: Dipbrow Pomade - Taupe
Try: The Face Shop Lovely MeeX Color My Brow 6ml Grey Brown

Eye Makeup

Summer Eye Makeup

Apply an eyelid primer to keep your eyeshadow in place through the heat! I’m then using this bright orange gel all over my lids. This is actually designed to be used as blush but the colour looks so good on the lids.
Brighten your eye with a beige pearl gel pencil in your waterline. Beige looks much more natural then a pure white and gel formula’s are so long lasting through the summer heat. I’m also using this pencil to highlight my brow bone. Finish off your eyeshadow by using your bronzer on the outer v and along your lash line. This will add some natural dimension to your eyeshadow. Now use a black gel liner to line your upper waterline for some natural looking definition. Finish off with a brown gel liner on the outer 3rd of your lash line extending out slightly. Apply a slight amount of this on the lower lash line.

Finish off by curling your lashes and applying a dark brown waterproof mascara! Eyelash extensions are also a great way to take you through the summer as you can avoid applying mascara and have it smear on you. I have them on now but half of them have fallen off as you can see!

Winter Eye Makeup

I’m going to be doing a very neutral and matt look on the eyes for winter. Apply a skin coloured matte powder all over your lids for a great base. Now apply a highlight shade to our brow bone. Using a transition colour I’m applying this to the crease. Taking a darker matt brown I’m applying this to the outer lash line and lower lash line for some definition. Using a liquid liner I’m drawing a slight winged liner. I love this clean eyeliner look with bold lips.
Finish off my curling your lashes and applying a black mascara.

Summer Cheeks

Apply a bonzer to your cheeks blending up to your temples. You can also brush this on your forehead or over the top of your nose for a sunburnt effect. Apply a highlighter to your cheekbones and brow bone. I love this blowy look for summer it really makes our skin come alive

Try: Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder 5g
Try: theBalm Desert:
Try: The Balm Mary-lou Manizer Aka The Luminizer Shimmer, Highlighter

Winter Cheeks

Cream blush is perfect for winter because it looks so moist and beautiful. I’m applying this dusty rose shade on the apples of my cheeks blending up. Apply it a bit stronger then you’d like. Tone it down with your cc cream. This will make you look like you’re naturally flushing underneath your skin. Such an amazing effect.

Try: Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge For Lips And Cheeks Rose 0.13 oz


Summer Lip Makeup

I’m apply this tinted balm on my lips to give it  a natural flush. Then using a bright pink liquid lipstick I’m apply it to the centre then dabbing it out. Blur your lip like with some foundation if you want softer lips. The bright pink looks surprisingly good with the rest of the orange colours.

Christian Dior Dior Addict Lip Glow Color Awakening Lip Balm SPF
Dior Addict Lip Maximizer ( Collagen Activ Lipgloss ) - 6ml/0.2oz

Winter Lip Makeup

Burgundy and red lips look amazing and chic in winter. I’m applying a burgundy lipliner all over my lips then applying this beautiful rose shade on top. If you want to add a bit of drama apply a dark burgundy tint.

Much love,


So I recently got a messaging asking me how to navigate through the different options of face makeup, whether it's BB Cream, CC Cream, Foundation primer - I can understand why this can be extremely confusing for everyone. I guess I've been so obsessed with makeup sometimes I forget how confusing it can be!

So if you're confused about what makeup to wear and what not to wear please stay tuned I'm going try and make this really simple for you :)!!

STEP 1: Start off with a Base Primer

Base makeup is simply a primer. Some people choose to forgo this as it's not necessary but primers basically prep your skin for makeup. There are so many primers out there that do different things. Some of the functions include:

1. Moisturising - basic primer (not really a primer but "primes" your skin) is your moisturiser which helps to prep the skin so your makeup doesn't catch on dry areas.
Try the Smashbox Hydrating formulation:

2. Pore minimising - it basically fills in the holes of your pores to create a smooth surface
Try the Smashbox Photofinish formulation:

3. Matifying - it adds some ingredients to prevent your face from getting oily, it absorbs the oil.
Try the Innisfree No Sebum Primer:

4. Illuminating (glowy) - it has pearlised particles that create a glow that helps achieve dewy or shiny face makeup. They usually come in pink pearl or beige pearl colours.
Try the Etude House Nymph Aura primer:

5. Color Correcting primers - these come in purple, green and pink and tend to be used to change the tone of the skin before foundation is applied.
Try the smash box range of colour correcting primers:

Some primers do a combination of these things and as more and more products get released, it really is pretty hard to keep up. But basically primers go underneath your foundation - or can be used alone if you don't want to apply makeup but just want the benefits e.g. mattifying or illuminating looks.

This is what can happen if you're skin isn't primed with moisturiser or exfoliated properly before face makeup. If this happens to you, you know what you need to do!

example of the effect of pore minimising primers. Picture from here.
This is the effect illuminating primers can give you. Usually you would only apply it to the areas the need highlighting like your cheekbones, brow bone, top of nose, forehead and chin.

How you use correcting primers or concealers - this can be used in a spot area like under eyes as well as all over the face.

STEP 2: Choose your foundation formulation

Now you've weaved through the huge choice of primers, you now have to pick your chosen foundation formula! No longer is it just foundation, it's BB cream, CC Cream, Mineral Foundation, Cream Foundation, Liquid, Powder. The choice is really endless - but the function is pretty much the some. Just to even out your complexion. So how do you choose?

Liquid Foundation

The most common type of foundation is still liquid foundation. You can get a variety of foundation formulas with full coverage or light coverage. If you want little to no coverage you can consider using a tinted moisturiser. Foundation normally is matched to your skin colour and there is 2 considerations you need to think about when you match your skin colour.

1. The tone - are you pink or warm or olive. Warm or cool? This is going to be a key consideration. Make sure the foundation you pick matches the TONE of your skin.

2. The shade - now your tone may not change much but the shade you are in summer and winter can change dramatically depending on how tan you usually get. But picking the right shade is also important, especially for full coverage foundations. Foundations with lover coverage can blend easily and are more forgiving.

MAC's studio fix fluid is a popular liquid foundation that comes in a huge range of colours. Get them here:
You might also want to try SkinFood's Green Grapes Foundation - much raved about.

Cream Foundation

These usually offer a higher coverage and are thicker than liquid foundation. However there are a few everyday cream foundations that give you the convenience of being able to carry it around for touch ups. These are usually called compact foundations. 

Most stage makeup and theatre make up artists tend to use cream foundations. Special effects makeup also use this formula a lot, but unless you have lots of pigmented places to cover, usually this type of coverage should be reserved for stage makeup.

Bobbi Browns Cream foundation is a convenient carry around foundation with full coverage.

Mineral foundation/powder

There's been a huge trend for mineral products because they claim to work even on sensitive skin. And if buffed in well I really do love the finish. It offers versatility because you can buff it up to full coverage and layer on as needed. It feels more natural and is a more forgiving formula for people with oily skin or live in humid/hot weather. Liquid foundation tends to slide off if not primed well with a mattifying primer. The key to having this foundation look great is to have a great buffing brush (you have to use a brush to apply this) and to moisturise your skin well underneath. I love using rose hip oil for this.

One of the most popular and the original mineral foundation is by Bare Minerals. Comes in a huge range of colors!

Now come the new introductions that have been introduced from Korea.

BB Cream

Originally used as a way to coverup and heal laser skin patients in Germany, it caught on in Korea as a huge trend. What makes BB creams different is that it offers skin treatments as well as makeup. It will offer essences and lotions with vitamins for your skin to help it stay healthy as well as cover up. The colours tend to be limited compared to foundations as Koreans tend to be quite Homogenous and therefore the range tends to range from Pale to Pale. 

In addition the tones of BB creams tend to be a bit greyish or pinkish - because Koreans love that light pinky toned skin. The coverage can vary from light to medium - but usually not as heavy as liquid foundation. 

A lot of western brands have also released BB Creams with different colour ranges as well, but it also tends to be limited to about 3 shades, compared to foundations that usually have 5-30 shades even. If you want coverage but still want your natural skin to shine through this may be an option for you.

Some popular BB Creams from Korea. My fave has got to be Missha and Skin79. Missha is a fave because they've come out with a wider range of colours compared to most of the BB Creams and it's also very moisturising with medium coverage.
Get the Missha BB cream here:
Skin79 GoldBB Cream:
Lioele BB Cream:
Dr Jart+ BB Cream:
HanSkin Magic BB:
Some western bb creams that have come out. They tend to have a lower coverage like a tinted moisturiser. I've used and loved the Garnier:
L'oreal Youth code:
Too Faced:

CC Cream

CC stands for Color Correction - and the whole point of this product is to change the tone of your skin and brighten it - not so much cover it. You'll find a lot of CC creams have low coverage but have a tint of colour to brighten up the complexion and create a glow. Almost like a super version of an illuminating/color correcting primer. CC cream like BB cream are also known to have a lot of skin loving ingredients like vitamins, and moisturising essences as well as SPF.

example of how Hera's CC cream can just brighten and even up the tone of the skin. Get it here:

I'm currently loving this one by Banila Co, and love how it makes my skin a bit pinkish and brighter.

Cushion Foundation

Now cushion foundations are like foundations but come in a convenient to use compact. It's one of the most popular types of foundation in Korea today. The foundation is stored in a sponge because the formulation has so much essence infused in it, it is quite liquid like. 

The compact and sponge is really to help you dispense and apply the product since it is quite thin and liquid, it may just run through your hands if tipped into your hand. The sponge is also used to pat the product into your skin, usually giving a more smoother finish than your fingers. 

Because cushion is more of a description word for how it is presented, cushion foundations can come in BB, CC or Foundation formulations. There is a huge range from light coverage to heavy coverage - but even heavy coverage fusions seem to be just medium coverage. 

The one striking difference is really the amount of liquid moisture and vitamins they are about to infuse into the foundation, which is why it is extremely popular in Korea. It's both convenient, super moisturising and great for the skin.

Every Korean brand has their own Cushion Foundations.
Sulwhasoo (perfect for ageing skin) :
IOPE (One of the original and loved):
Hera (More Premium branded):
Laneige (Love this I use it! Pictured is a Limited Ed. packaging. ):
Innisfree (I also have this and love it):
Missha (haven't tried it but love their bb creams):
A new type like this one by VDL dispenses the foundation through these pumps, avoiding the cushion from drying out quickly like the previous sponge dispensers.

STEP 3: Concealers

You don't HAVE to use a concealer if you don't have any areas you are concerned with after you put on your foundation. If you are happy with the coverage, I'd skip the concealer. But concealer is just for those extra areas like under eyes around your nose that sometimes need extra coverage. Cream and stick concealers (a bit drier then cream and offers good coverage) gives you more coverage, followed by liquid concealers (more liquid and spreadable). 

The only downside is usually the higher the coverage (or thicker you apply it) the more likely the tendency to crease in areas like under your eyes.

Concealers can also come in colour correcting tones like purple, green and pink, but I'd stick to a shade just one tone or the same colour as your foundation to start off with. 

Specific to under eyes: Pink based concealers help with blue under eye circles and peach based concealers help with yellowish brown under eye circles.

My HG concealer because it's waterproof great coverage and easy to spread. Huge range of colours too!
Bobbo Brown Cream Concealers are one of my faves! This comes in a duo kit for better colour matching:
Color Correcting concealer - I used to own this but never found myself using it that often.

Step 4: Finishing Spray or Powders

Now the final thing you might consider is to finish off your face with a finishing spray or powder. You may choose either depending on what look you're going for and your skin type. Powders really help with oily skin and it also helps keep your makeup shine free for as long as possible. You can choose to only powder areas where you feel you may get oily and to prevent the make up from sliding off that place prematurely. Usually you can powder your forehead nose and cheeks. You only want a light dusting with a powder the same colour as your foundation colour or clear.

Finishing spray also helps your foundation last longer and can also give you a dewier finish. You can use this all over your face! Sometimes a spritz during the day can refresh your foundation by adding moisture back into it. The enemy to make up is either too dry or too oily skin.

The original and best MAC fixed + finisher - a classic for all make up lovers: 

A popular finishing powder from Banila Co comes in hydrating, normal and sebum control:

So now that I've finished all the steps, I'm not even going to go into contouring and highlighting since I don't feel like that's really "basic" and deserves a whole seperate blog post! I'm going to finish off with saying, all of these steps are optional and to never feel like you have to wear foundation for the sake of it! If you're skin is great just use a great moisturiser with sunscreen and perhaps dab some concealer on some areas you want to cover up. I'm a huge advocate of keeping it simple :)!! 

If you love finding out about new makeup products  I always post new Korean Makeup and Skincare hauls on my Channel and my blog :)!

Hope you found this helpful :)!! Much love,

Wengie xoxo

I've come to a revelation recently. That is...


Seriously, my recent hauls have been pretty much full of face stuff like foundations, bb creams, skin things or like lip things. Maybe because once I have a basic eyeliner and a few neutral colored shadows I'm happy. But it's so much more fun to play with different colours on your lips! Also due to the fact that my eyelids loves playing hide and seek with my eyeshadow colors.

Open your eyes and "poof" it's gone!!

So I went scouring around for some super interesting lip products to try. I wanted to go beyond the lipsticks and glosses so I found 7 interesting lip products to show you guys today!

The 7 interesting lip products:

1. Dior Color Revival Balm:

This lip balm basically changes colors on your lips, making it a "mood changing" balm. It gives you your own individual flush.

2. 3CE Lip Marker in Pink

This is like a texter or marker for your lips! It leaves a stain that isn't sticky and doesn't transfer once it's on! Perfect for a low maintenance understated lip!

3. VDL Expert Color Lip Cube Moisture SPF10 in Pink Positive

This cube shaped lipstick really helps apply product on the cupids bow area of your lips, making application of bold and heavy colours more precise and easier!

4. VDL Tint Bar Triple Shot in Burgundy

This lipstick looks like a candy bar, but it will help you apply ombre lip patterns with no extra effort!

5. SkinAz Magic Lip Tattoo:

One of the more interesting products, you basically apply it on and then peel it off to revealed perfectly stained lips. Does take a bit of practice to precisely put on the product though and you may need to wipe off some residue if it doesn't peel off straight away!

6. Pure Smile Lip Mask

Perfect indulgence for your lips! A moisturising and plumping mask :)

Have you tried any of these? What did you guys think?

Much love,

Much love,


I've seen so many make up tutorials where in order to get bigger eyes you end up layering on so much black shadow and liner you pretty much look like you're headed out to the latest night club.

However I wanted to show you guys that you can make your eyes look bigger but also natural as well! It's a great look because you can wear this to school or to the office without looking like you're ready for a night out and the bonus is you only need 3 products for the eyes and one for the cheek and lips. Best of all, you can easily find them in the drugstore!!

Note: The Korean branded Make up is considered Korean Drugstore or "street brands".

Bigger natural eyes without breaking the bank :) It's also beginner friendly because I chose to use only basic tools, Q-tips (cotton buds) and your fingers as well as an eyelash curler! Yup that's it!

Products that I used for this Makeup Tutorial

Much love,


So many of you guys mentioned that you liked the look of my hairless and white arm pits and as weird as that sounds you inspired me to make a video! Why not :) I hope you enjoy this hair removal story where I used laser hair removal to keep my armpits permanently hairless. This really beats waxing at home, shaving and hair removal cream in the long run. It feels like zaps :) a bit painful but well worth it!

Also now you can even use a numbing cream before your treatment to further dull the pain!

In this video I share the story of hair removal on my armpits and underarms. How I first started removing them and what I've tried and also how I got hairless armpits for life :)!!

Share your experience with hair removal with me below :)!! Love you guys :)!!
