Cherry Blossom Season in Korea: #MOTD
Makeup flatlays - I love drawing these! They're so simple, with just the rough forms of each product and a hint of color. Makeup is a form of art and I like to think of these doodle flatlays as a form of fashion illustration. A cute Polaroid picture frame brings the whole image together.
For my spring & cherry blossom makeup look, I used some of my favorite products by Innisfree. Their colors look very natural and it's hard to mess up even if you aren't the best at applying makeup... (cough cough)
Innisfree Ampoule Moisture Cushion in C13 The air is still quite dry, so I stick to my winter foundation. For short trips like this, a thin layer of cushion foundation works best, since it's quick to apply in the morning and easy to touch up during the day.
Volumecara Mascara Innisfree came out with these additional versions of their Microcara Mascara a while ago, and I love both the "Long Long Cara" and "Volume Cara" despite the quite silly names. They're definitely still tiny and delicate, but there is a volume boost without the lashes clumping together (huge pet peeve!).
Innisfree Smart Drawing Strobing in #1 Pink Light Powder highlighters don't work very well on my dry skin and can look off when used on top of 'dewy' foundation, especially. I really enjoy this combination of a liquid highlighter and built-in brush. It so speaks to the illustrator in me!
The color is subtle and natural, but still brightens and highlights my measly cheekbones.
Brow Master Pencil with a thin brow pen, brow powder, and brush in one. There's a theme here with multi-use products that come with built-in brushes or no need for brushes at all...
This brow pencil is a lot thinner and more precise than the Auto Brow Pencils from the same brand and I love to combine it with the soft brow powder brush/stamp that makes up the other side of the pencil.
My full palette of eyeshadow is still in use despite some of those shadows now p.r.o.b.a.b.l.y being over their expiration date. Oops. But I've never had any adverse effects from using these and hate to be wasteful, so on we go! I just use a beige color as a base, then use a dark brown to blend like an eyeliner. The actual eyeliner I used ... I forgot to draw that one!
Usually, I don't like waterproof makeup on my eyes since it's a pain to remove, but the eyeliners by Aritaum have such a gorgeous texture that I'll use them anyway.
