Super Junior M is showing off some great hair color in the teaser for their latest song Break Down! What caught my eye the most was Ryeowook and Siwon's hair color which can be created using hair chalk. Ryeowook has a combination of green and red,highlights, while Siwon is using grey, green, and yellow. For the color to show up more on dark hair like their's, you could use white chalk first and then layer it with the color you want to use. Check out the hair chalk HERE, and see the pictures below for further inspiration!

Knowing the color of your skin undertone can make it easier for you to determine the type of makeup base you should wear. Take the quiz below to determine your undertones!
So which of the statements do you agree with?
BB (blemish balm) creams are an all-in-one facial treatment + moisturiser + makeup to address your specific skin issues and provide natural, sheer tinted coverage to improve the appearance of your skin by covering dark spots and blemishes. Although BB creams generally seem to have a limited range of colours, they oxidise to match your skin tone so that you don't look like you're wearing a lot of makeup.
BB cream was probably the most popular beauty product in 2012. Although BB creams are new to Western makeup brands, they have actually been popular among Korean women since the 1980s! BB creams actually originated from Germany in the 1960s, as a cream that would protect skin that had undergone surgery. However, Korea was the first to adopt BB creams as a cosmetic product in 1985 and it continues to be the best selling beauty product in Korea today.
The type of BB cream you should use depends on the type of skin you have. Below we'll list a couple of examples of BB creams for specific skin issues.
Acne prone skin:
Dark skin tones:
I love wearing thick mascara on my lower lashes. The doe eyed look is both timeless (as seen on Jane Birkin and Mia Farrow to SNSD) and effortless. It's also super easy to do, given you have the right tools! We recommend the Etude Dual Show Long Lash Mascara. This mascara comes with fibers that leave your lashes super thick and long, you'll look like you're wearing false lashes. Curl your lashes, use the black mascara, layer the fibers over it, and then use the black mascara again to cover the fibers. If you want to make your lashes even thicker, repeat the above steps until it's to your liking. To lengthen and thicken your actual lashes, try the Etude Dr. Lash Ampule, which contains 2 lash serums for morning and night. Results show within 4 weeks of routine use.
I find that eyeliner is one of the most important things in my makeup routine, since it can change your look instantly! Of course, you could just line your eyes throughout your lashline and call it a day, but why not go the extra mile and try the oh so popular cat eye. The cat eye is universally flattering because it elongates the shape of your eyes and makes them look bigger and more open. Experiment with the variety of cat eye looks below and see what suits you best! As for your tool of choice, we suggest the Clio Pen Liner in Kill Black, which is a super easy to use, fine tipped pen liner that was practically made for creating cat eye looks.
Yoon Eunhye's pink gradation lips in her new drama "I Miss You" has become a trademark for her character and here's a tutorial on how to copy her look!:
This gradation effect will make your lips look cute and doll like, much like a pouty 1920s lip but in a much more wearable way.
Lately I've really been into period dramas and movies. I recently finished the third season of Downton Abbey and the first season of The Paradise and today I just watched Marie Antoinette. Needless to say, I was absolutely blown away by how pretty the scenes were. And unlike the English, French people seemed to show no restraint in painting their faces with rouge and lipstick, something that they and I have in common!
As you can see in the pictures, Marie Antoinette's look consists of pale skin, lots (and I mean LOTS) of blush, and a red stained lip. To get her look, go for the Etude Etoinette Collection! Not only will the products make you look like Marie Antoinette, the cute packaging would not look out of place at her bedroom in Versailles. Use the Etude Etoinette Heart Blush on the apples of your cheeks, and don't hesitate to apply a lot of it. Use the Etude Etoinette Heart Highlighter on top of your cheekbones to make your skin look bright and porcelain-like. And lastly, use a red lip stain like the Peripera Peri's Tint Water in Cherry Juice or the Etude Dear Darling Tint to get Marie Antoinette's rosy stained lips.
PS: The shoes for the movie were designed by Manolo Blahnik!
I just really love Jessica's CF for the all new Banila It Shiny Shimmer Base
What's happening in the CF is basically Jessica walks into a club and all around her are girls trying to impress with the latest "IT" items, but Jessica doesn't need any of that because her it item is her glowing skin, due to Banila's It Shiny Shimmer Base.
Glowing and radiant skin is very much in these days as it evokes a healthy and youthful feeling. To get Jessica's it girl glow, use the It Shiny Shimmer Base before your BB cream to look naturally radiant. You could also mix it with your BB cream to make your skin look luminous.
Since the It Shiny Shimmer Base is a multifunctional product, there are a number of ways you could use it:
The Banila Co It Shiny Shimmer Base was the winner of last year’s Allure Beauty Awards for Best Highlighter beating Bobbi Brown, MAC, and other international brands. It contains hyaluronic acid and phytocollagen complex to provide nutrition and hydration to the skin.
