kindacool or 아영 was one of the first korean youtubers that I discovered and has since become my style icon. her channel is a mix of lifestyle, fashion, skincare and makeup. what I love about her channel and especially her videos are her editing skills and her taste of music. whenever she posts a new vlog I drop everything just to watch it as soon as I get the notification.
yoo’s beauty has one of the best tastes in fashion that I have come across of. it is very different from my own style but inspires me to incorporate more colour into my wardrobe. she mainly focuses on beauty but also publishes fashion and lifestyle content.
sobong is a makeup goddess but unfortunately she doesn’t post a lot of videos. but whenever she does I am very excited, because although I love makeup I am not very good at it and need every help that I can get. every makeup look that she creates is very unique and beautiful. if she is not posting any videos you can head on over to her instagram to find daily makeup inspiration.
leeanfilm is the one channel that publishes makeup tutorials that I can actually follow. her makeup looks a very subtle but beautiful and therefore super easy to follow. thanks to her I look kind of put together every day. the best thing about korean youtubers is the fact that I can watch my favourite content of fashion, makeup and lifestyle but at the same time I can study and improve my korean.
who are some of your favourite korean youtubers? let me know.
spring is just around the corner and although I really like the winter and can’t wait for some warmth and the change to my spring wardrobe. the only downside, sunrays. ever since my research on korean skincare I have been stressing the importance of sunscreen to everyone around me. putting on sunscreen is so important and should be the most important step in anyones skincare routine. sunscreens help to block UVB damaging the skin and UVA causing skin aging. if you don’t do anything about that sunrays can cause sunburn, dark spots, wrinkles, aged looking skin and even go so far as to causing skin cancer. I have recently come across the missha sunscreen which they are even selling in german drugstores now. people who are put off by sunscreen because they have the prejudice of sunscreen being really sticky and uncomfortable will be surprised because this sunscreen is something else.
the missha all-around safe block essence SPF45/PA+++ is my first ever korean sunscreen. so far I have been using normal sunscreens and a japanese one, all of them were “okay” but I never really liked their consistency and the feeling they left on my skin after applying it. normal sunscreen is usually very sticky and therefore not really pleasant on the skin. the japanese one (bioré) was very thin and moisturizing, it felt more like an essence rather than a thick enough barrier to block UV rays. I was very surprised by the consistency of the missha all-around safe block essence, because although it is advertised as an essence it is still thick enough for me to feel like I have applied something that will protect my skin. the essences used in the product help the skin’s moisture by hydrating and nourishing it and therefore making makeup application very easy.
the only thing that I don’t like and I have to admit I don’t really know about is how to handle reapplying my sunscreen during the day when I don’t want to mess up my full face of makeup. unfortunately applying sunscreen once in the morning won’t do the job of protecting your skin all day long. I did my research and found that you have to reapply your sunscreen every two to three hours. there are several methods in how to make sure your skin won’t suffer from UV rays. you can either get a cushion compact with SPF, a powder with SPF or my favourite option a face mist with SPF. I am pretty sure that there are more options, so there is no way for you to back out of protecting your skin from UV rays.
how do you protect your skin from the sun? let me know.
it has already been a week since my trip to vienna and I wish I could go back. vienna has always been a city that I wanted to visit and therefore, I had really high expectations. vienna did not let me down and I would even go that far and say that I could imagine myself living there. unfortunately the weather wasn’t that great but I managed to take some blue skied photos on the second day. here are some snapshots from my trip.
