Introduction to Heimish Cosmetics

Lately I've been more open with trying new things and so far the products I've tried have been a hit! One of the brands that has impressed me is Heimish.

I was kindly sent a care package from the StyleKorean team to try out and review these three Heimish products: Breeze Beige Eye Palette*, Dailism Serum Rouge Lipstick in Morning Calm*, and Dailism Mineral Rich Lipstick in Fine Day*.

5 Long-Lasting Eye Shadow Primers Under $11. Kendall Jenner's Makeup Artist Tells Us How to Apply Cream Eye Shadow Like a Pro. Unlike hard-to-apply powder shadows that involve multiple colour choices and a variety of brushes, cream shadow is much user-friendlier, or so makeup artists tell us.

Kendall Jenner's Makeup Artist Tells Us How to Apply Cream Eye Shadow Like a Pro

Not sure of the latest industry tips on how to apply cream eye shadow, we reached out to a few professionals for their crease-free application guidelines. Ask any makeup artist to chose between powder or cream shadows, and they will likely say cream. Why, you ask? According to Honey Artists makeup artist Suzy Gerstein, it’s “because I find them far easier to apply and blend on the go, plus the finish looks more like real skin rather than sitting on top of the surface of your skin like powders tend to.”

NYX Ultra Pearl Mania  Totally forgot about these!

NYX Ultra Pearl Mania

Now I have this Naked 3 and really curious about what they offer because duh, this series is maybe the most popular eye palette in the market. Even my friends who are not into beauty stuffs have heard about its name If NAKED 1 you get free UDPP Travel size and NAKED 2 you get free lipgloss/eyeliner, on Naked 3 you receive sample size of all of their UDPP in Original, Eden, Sin, and Anti Aging.
