迎接耶誕歡愉氛圍,香奈兒2015限量耶誕彩妝系列以經典「勃根地酒紅(Rouge Noir)」色調,詮釋兼具前衛、復古、神秘、熱情等多重特質的色彩美學,與葡萄美酒色澤相近的酒紅,灑上閃耀金銅,更添奢華。

「勃根地酒紅(Rouge Noir)」色調自1995年推出後,便成為香奈兒的經典色彩之一,獨具個性的大膽色調吸引了無數自信女性的目光。「勃根地酒紅(Rouge Noir)」指甲油在香奈兒彩妝歷史上的地位不言而喻。在 1926 年五月美國版《Vogue》中,有一篇關於色彩時尚的文章特別指出香奈兒女士對此強烈而前衛的前瞻性色調愛不釋手。「將原有的黑與白點綴上有如勃根地酒和黑櫻桃一般深紅色,是香奈兒愛用的顏色,稱為『紅黑色(red-black)』。」 香奈兒的大膽、現代與經 典皆蘊藏在此反叛宣言中,呈現女性心中典型的衝突矛盾精神。Rouge Noir 指甲油。一款絕對的原創色,起初在美國取名為「Vamp」,搶眼而神祕,在熱情奔放的紅色與深邃簡約的黑色間,流露自信無畏的時尚態度。

「勃根地酒紅(Rouge Noir)」獨樹一幟的色調為造型增添現代風格,突顯存在感。跳脫古典,也非歌德,既不屬於搖滾,也非新潮,更不是所有風格的綜合體,因為Rouge Noir 擺脫所有符碼,淬鍊出獨特的時尚美學。它激盪出所有風格,「勃根地酒紅(Rouge Noir)」為各種風格注入熱情能量。

2015年的限量聖誕彩妝系列,香奈兒彩妝創意工作室將「勃根地酒紅(Rouge Noir)」的精神與歡樂節慶完美結合,讓勃根地紅成為最炫耀的時尚主角,引領本季美妝新潮流,同時為耶誕彩妝增添一股誘人的神秘氛圍。玩轉於粉紅、深紅、紫色與閃耀的金銅色調等鮮豔色彩,突顯勃根地紅的經典奢華魅力。濃烈而細緻的色彩,能刻劃出鮮明的妝容效果,無論精巧的粉霧質感或閃耀的珠光,都能聚焦目光於眼妝和唇妝,隨心打造出專屬這聖誕季節的誘人自信妝容。

How to Apply Foundation Like a Pro with Romero Jennings

20 Sep

by Kaitlyn Dreyling │ Re-Blog from: PopSugarFoundation-Application-Tips

Getting a flawless makeup look means you have to master the basics first. Director of Makeup Artistry at M·A·C Cosmetics Romero Jennings shares the essential steps to perfecting your complexion so you have the ideal base for creating any makeup look.

·

Prep-Your-Skin

Prep Your Skin │ 妝前美膚清潔

“It’s so important to prep your skin before you put on foundation,” Jennings says. Start off with clean skin by washing your face or using a face wipe to perfect your canvas.

M·A·C Wipes

·

Moisturize

Moisturize │ 美肌保濕

You want to have healthy, glowing skin before you even apply your foundation. So once your skin is clean, add a little hydration with a touch of moisturizer and eye cream.

“Eye cream is really important and to start at a young age,” Jennings says. “If you don’t want to use it during the daytime, because you feel like your skin is oily, then use it at night.”

M·A·C Prep + Prime Moisture Infusion

Prime

Prime │ 妝前乳打底

Once your skin is hydrated, the next step is to apply a primer. “Primers really help everything stay in place,” Jennings says.

Mattify

Mattify │ 無瑕啞緻

And if you have oily skin, Jennings recommends using MAC’s Skin Refined Zone($20) to take down shine. “It controls oil in the T zone, smoothes the skin out, and it also dries matte,” he explains. “This will last, especially if you’re going out in the evening, and you can use it later over your makeup for any touch-ups.”

Blend-Your-Foundation-Moisturizer

Blend Your Foundation and Moisturizer │ 混合粉底液&乳液

Next, blend your foundation with your moisturizer to create a smooth, glides-on-easily product. Jennings used Matchmaster SPF 15 Foundation ($33) with Studio Moisture Fix ($31) in a palette with a brush. If you don’t have a palette, then you can use the back of your hand and a brush, or even just your fingers.

“What I love about mixing them together is that this formula is great to use by itself,” Jennings explains. “You’re almost making a tinted moisturizer out of it.”

·

Tap-Brush

Tap on With a Brush │ 用刷子輕拍

“It’s really important to just stipple, or to tap,” Jennings says about applying your foundation. “A lot of people tend to wipe when they use brushes. But the technique is really about pressing or tapping because you have more control, and the result doesn’t look as caked on.”

He recommends using a small contouring brush like the MAC 109 Brush ($35), which is ideal to use for the tapping technique over a standard foundation brush.

·

Under-Eye-Area

Under-Eye Area │ 眼週遮瑕

Once you’ve gone over your skin with a wash of foundation, it’s time to go back and touch up with concealer. Jennings first starts on the eyes. “Everyone has a little bit of redness in the outer corner of the eye from tearing,” Jennings explains.

That’s why he recommends tapping concealer on the outer corner and toward the inner corner. He then blends the concealer to cover the under-eye area. “The area people will always complain about looking thick [makeup-wise] is the center right under the eye, so that’s why I apply it with this technique.”

Perfect-Conceal

Perfect and Conceal │ 完美遮瑕

Other common areas that need a touch of concealer include on the sides of and under the nose, around the mouth, and on any blemishes or pimples. Jennings uses the stippling technique for concealer, too.

To cover a raised pimple, Jennings likes to use a skinny brush to tap concealer right on top of the blemish. Next, he’ll go back with his regular foundation brush and tap over the area to help blend it out.

·

Set-Powder

Set With Powder │ 蜜粉定妝

Once you have a flawless look, set everything with powder. This step helps minimize shine, but most of all, it will keep your perfected look in place.

·

Perfect-Complexion

Perfect Complexion │ 完美膚色

Now that you’ve perfected your complexion, all you need for a natural look is a touch of blush, mascara, and a little lip balm.

KOREAN SKINCARE: The Difference Between Serums, Essences & Ampoules

20 Sep
Korean Beauty

Korean Beauty

·

A deep investigation into the Korean skincare regimen.

By: Cheryl Wischhover │ Re-Blog from Fashionista

·

If you’re into skin care — or honestly, even if you’re not — there’s a good chance you’ve heard of the infamous Korean 10+-step face care regimen. While certain products in the regimen make a lot of sense to western beauty junkies (I totally understand face cleanser!), there are some categories that probably have you scratching your head. Like essences, for example.

As I started really delving into the regimen, I was having a hard time sussing out exactly what an essence does. Confusing English translations on products from Korea, clever marketing lingo and the sheer number of products in the category all added to the challenge. My confusion peaked when I started trying to determine the difference between an essence and a serum, so I decided to consult Sarah Lee and Christine Chang, the co-founders of naturalK-beauty e-commerce site Glow Recipe to help me figure it out. Come with me down the rabbit hole of concentrated, slightly gooey skin care products, won’t you?

·

TONER │ 化妝水

MISSHA Super Aqua Pore Correcting Toner

MISSHA Super Aqua Pore Correcting Toner

·

Before we can discuss essences, let’s talk toner. After you cleanse your face, you’re supposed to use toner, a step that’s also obviously common in western skin care regimens. A dermatologist once told me that toners were invented because soap used to be so harsh that it would raise the pH of your skin to unhealthy levels. The toner would then bring the skin’s surface pH back to normal. That’s not really an issue anymore with all the gentle face cleansers we have. Now most toners contain antioxidants or other beneficial additives and they serve as a skin prep.

According to Lee, toners in Korea provide a base layer of hydration, making the skin more amenable to what’s about to go on top. She suspects that women in the U.S. often use toning as a second cleansing step, though. (I am totally guilty of this. Many nights I’ll think I got everything off, and then when I use toner, the cotton pad is horrifyingly gunked up afterwards.) The easiest way to recognize a toner? They’re generally really watery and come in larger bottles.

OK, so your face is cleansed and toned. Technically this is when you  should use an essence, but I’m going to keep you in suspense just a bit longer to talk about serums, which is a category I feel like I have a very firm grasp on. I love serums. I’m addicted. I have serum rituals and seasonal serums and I try every single one that gets sent to me.

Generally, a serum contains a few key active ingredients to address specific issues like brightening, dark spots, wrinkles, etc. The actives are usually more concentrated than what you’ll find in, say, a moisturizing cream. Serums  are a bit thicker in consistency — almost oil-like — and usually come in a bottle that’s much smaller than a toner or cleanser bottle. Often the bottles have droppers to dispense the product, though  I’ve seen serums that are opaque and almost lotion-like, in small pump bottles.

So, what the hell IS an essence then? This is going to be controversial, but here goes: An essence and a serum are essentially (haha pun!) the same thing. Mind-blowing, right? BUT. There are some important caveats to note.

According to Lee, essences traditionally were more lightweight and less concentrated than serums, and were used after a toner to add another layer of hydration before you applied serums. (SK-II’s essence is a classic example of the texture.) Now, however, while you can still find the more watered-down essences (and I frequently see this type of product called an “emulsion” as well),  that line is completely blurred. Serums are getting more lightweight and essences are getting thicker, and they both can contain high concentrations of active ingredients.

In fact, the very words “essence” and “serum” are nothing but marketing words now. Basically  (and I’m generalizing here), western women understand “serum” and Asian women understand “essence,” so now that we’re all exporting our products to each other’s countries, the terms essence/serum/concentrate are practically interchangeable. Lee tells me that she read a paper by a professor of cosmetics science in Korea that noted as much. It’s all marketing. (A fun example in this Glow Recipe blog post: Estée Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair serum is nicknamed “Brown Bottle Essence” in Korea.)

“Both essence and serums are used at the same treatment step of skincare to achieve similar results. There may be small differences in texture, but now the lines are increasingly blurry,” Sokmin Yu, the head of Korean cosmetics lab Cosmax USA, explains.  Ready for the real mind f*ck? He continues, “In leading beauty markets like Korea, there are many new developments in essences, which are bringing even more steps such as the pre-essence and post-essence to the skincare routine.” Pre-essence? Oh, please no.

This is probably also a good time to mention treatment toners, also called essence lotions or essence toners.  These have a consistency  that people more traditionally associate with an essence — thinner but with a bit of body.Clinique’s recently launched version is a perfect example. They can replace a traditional toner, but have more hydrating oomph. (This one by Whamisa is beautiful. The posh French skincare brand Sisley also has a luxe version, called Sisleya Essential Skin Care Lotion, launching in March.) They fall somewhere between a toner and a serum on the gooey scale.

AMPOULE │ 安瓶(高濃度精華)

A quick word on ampoules, because they’re in the same family as essences and serums. An ampoule is a supercharged serum with higher concentrations of active ingredients that you’re meant to use for a finite amount of time as a booster or when you’re having a skin crisis of some sort.  Chang recommends using them before your essence or serum. Ampoules usually come in smaller bottles with droppers.

Try: LJH Vita Propolis Ampoule, $38, available at Glow Recipe (I’ve been loving this for extra hydration and glowiness during a very stressful week.)

As long as women are interested in applying 27 different products, companies will be happy to introduce them. But don’t panic.

• First, figure out what your skin needs and choose products with ingredients that fit the bill. Don’t get caught up in whether it’s a serum or an essence. Ignore everything on the label except the ingredients.

• After you figure out the right ingredients for your skin issues, choose a texture that suits your skin type and your sensibility. Try out different textures to see what you like. Don’t worry about following some cookbook notion of what your skin care regimen should look like. It should constantly evolve, depending on what your skin needs.
