Glowing Skin Makeup Tutorial~❤

We've all heard of the dewy 물광 look in Korea but also at the moment, a pearly highlighted sheen face is very popular too! 
Especially in this hot weather where a dewy face may look oily! ><
Today I've going to show you how to get a glowing, youthful, highlighted face perfect for everyday & gorgeous in photos.
LOL you can see my makeshift tripod XDㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
 Normally I just cheat with Etude House Nymph Aura Volumer but I'm going to show you with actually highlighter!

The products you will need:-
A glowing finish BB Cream/Foundation
Optional:- Loose powder
Important Highlighter! (powder, cream, liquid - your choice!)

Lets start with a clean face
(I've already applied my eye makeup & lip makeup for the sake of not blinding you guys XD)
I have a light break out, dry skin & dark circles ㅠㅠ

Step 1 Skin preparation
Apply moisturiser that fits your skin type. 
I'm using Garnier Moisture Match Moisturiser Dry to very dry skin
 This moisturiser I'm using leaves the skin feeling very soft & looking dewy!~ ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ

Step 2 Face MakeupApply a BB Cream/Foundation that will give your face a glowing/dewy finish
I'm using favourite Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream Bright Fit in shade N02 Light Beige. This BB cream really brightens up my imperfections & leaves my face looking radiant & fresh!~
Read my review on this BB Cream HERE 
Half a pump is just enough to cover my whole face!~

I dot the BB cream over my cheek & blended outwards gently~
 Here you can really see how well it brightened up my face & dark circles! *0*

Step3 Conceal any imperfections
 My imperfections are dark circles & some stress spots! I recommend using a creamy concealer to cover acne & dark spots. 
I'm using TONYMOLY Baby Doll Pot Concealer in shade Light Beige - Review HERE  
First I'm concealing my dark circles:-

Tip:- Applying too much makeup to the eye area can make you look older & even more tired. Use a creamy concealer lightly to eye area to gently fade the dark circle appearances rather than 'paint' it away. 
Like so:-
No concealer                                                                              Concealer      
Blend gently by patting with ring finger - We use our ring finger because it's the weakest finger & our eye area is delicate so we must be gentle. Also gentle patting will help the concealer adhere to the eyes better.

Looks much better right? 

Apply concealer to any blemishes you might have. This concealer I use has great coverage so I only need a little bit on a concealer brush.
For a more natural finish, pat with makeup sponge.
Set with loose powder if you'd like for longlasting, semi-matte finish look.                                           

Step 4 Time for the most important step - Highlighting!~
I chose liquid highlighter because I find it easier to blend with but you can use can type of you like!~
I just use cheap Chit Chat Highlighter
 Apply dots/pats of highlighter just under your eyes, like so:-
The KPOP Idol look has  highlighted baby face point, Applying highlighter just under the eyes will enhance & create a round baby face appearance.
Blend by gently patting

Your cheeks should look rounder & more youthful~(○´∀`○)

Step 5 For a slimmer appearance, highlight C-Zone (temples).
Blend by patting
This gives the face more of a slim angle & brings attention to the eyes. Great for cat eyeliner!≧◡≦

Step 6 Highlighting the nose
Apply highlighter to bridge of nose for a taller look~ I love highlighting my nose as it makes my face look dolly & bring attention to middle of my face (ノ*^▽^)ノ

Step 7 Apply highlighter to philtrum (Cupids bow) for dolly pout
Step 8 Apply highlighter to chin to bring it forward

Step 9 Pick a blusher of your choice, I chose a hot pink from LoveAlpha Summer Gradually Palette~
If you have problem area (acne) sweeping on blusher will enhance that problem more, so to avoid that; gently tap the blush on your cheeks~
Step 10 Draw in your brows however you like~ I draw my brows straight for a more youthful look~
I'm using Etude House Drawing Eyebrow in Grey. Review HERE

Finish off with a lively lipcolour like my Etude House Dear Darling Neon Liptint in Neon Orange.
Review HERE & your done!~~
Glowing, photo-ready skin without the oil!~ (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧
I accentuated my aegyo sals for a even more youthful look~
Hope some of you found this helpful & enjoyed it!~~
I've been sporting this look for a while & it makes my skin look radiant under the sunlight!~~ I hope you sport it too~

Lots of love~


  1. You're so lovely <3 i also found that apply serum also makes our face has natural glow & usually i skip the powder b'cause it can matte my face. btw, does the highlighter makes your face oily?

    1. (○´∀`○) Thank chu~~❤ I also skip powder! >< Liquid highlighter does not making my face oily ^^~

  2. wow so cutee ^^

    1. (ノ*^▽^)ノ❤ Thank chu so much~~

  3. cute! the highlighter on your nose, upper lip and chin made a big difference :)

    1. Thank chu (。・ω・。)ノ ❤
      Those three points of my face have always been my favourite highlight zones!~~

  4. you look so pretty, kei kei, even without makeup ^^

    1. (。^▽^。)~ Thank chu Rini!~ >///< ❤

  5. Kirsten, you don't need makeup dear! The bb cream was also sufficient to conceal any redness and dark eye circles you have haha. Wonderful tutorial though, and I too love to highlight those areas ^_^

  6. How did u accentuate the aegyo sal?

  7. Firstly, you look adorable! Both with and without makeup! <3

    I just got here from your ulzzang makeup tutorial and I really really like both posts.
    The ulzzang one gave me a lot of ideas for my own tutorials and I totally agree with you on the devy face... it makes my skin look very very oily so I'm glad I found this post > <

    Would you like to follow each others? I think we could both learn a lot and get loads of inspiration from each others ^o^
