If you’re into Korean culture and trends, you would probably know what an Ulzzang is. If not, ‘ulzzang’ is basically described as the ‘best face’ in Korean.


So how can you achieve the Korean Ulzzang makeup look? Here are some essential tips that you need to take note of!


--------------------------


#1: Grab a Circle Lens!

This is the most important thing that you must have. Notice how Ulzzangs look like dolls? It is because of the use of circle lenses. Even high school girls wear circle lenses as it really makes a big difference when you wear a circle lens.


Choose a lens that is preferably 14mm in diameter for a more doll-like effect. Another thing to consider when choosing a circle lens is to choose natural colours like brown, black or dark grey. Do not use exaggerated lenses with bright colours that are very noticeable and with a super huge lens diameter. It will only make your eyes look unnatural and strange.

#2 Choose a BB Cream with good coverage and dewy finish

You will never see an Ulzzang that doesn’t have a smooth and healthy looking face. They weren’t labeled ‘best face’ for no reason.  Having a dewy makeup look is a very popular trend in Korea as it makes the face look fresh and healthy. 



#3 Straight Eyebrows!

Have you even wondered why Ulzzangs, or rather most Koreans, have straight brows? For some people, straight brows may be weird as the most familiar brow shape are those with a softly emphasized arch. But for Koreans, straight eyebrows is a signature Ullzzang look as it makes you look innocent and younger.



#4 Puppy Eyeliner

You can never go wrong with winged eyeliner. In the past, Ulzzangs preferred the cat-eyed look; but nowadays the preference leans towards the Puppy Eyeliner. It’s a style that is all about applying a thin straight line on your upper lash line for a cute, puppy eye look.  



#5 Have an AEGYO-SAL

Everyone is getting rid of their puffy eyes by using cucumber, concealer, and other products to lessen the puffiness and darkness under their eye area. But Koreans are embracing this puffiness! The K-beauty look is all about emphasizing the ‘Aegyo-sal’ (the puffy, baby fats under your eyes) as it makes the eyes look rounder and cuter.



#6 Finish with a Gradient Lip Look

This is the last and important tip to score the Ulzzang makeup look; but first things first, apply concealer all over your lips. Then, apply the lip tint on the centre of your lips and use your pinky finger to blend the tint. Remember to just apply on the inner part of your lips. Finish off the look with a touch of lip gloss for soft, pouty lips!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease that affects most women today. However, despite people being aware of the magnitude of the disease, they forget to check up on themselves. The truth is, it can happen to anyone. We need to encourage one another to make an effort to know how to detect it in its early stages. We also need to inform the community by letting them know how to help! 


For Clozette, we chose to explain why it's associated with the colour pink. Know why and how to incorporate pink with these 5 points! And don't just stop there, let it spread on social media, or even go out there and discuss the matter with your friends and family. You'll never know--you might have just saved someone from breast cancer!

Pink Ribbon

The first known use of a pink ribbon in connection with breast cancer awareness was in the fall of 1991, when the Susan G. Komen Foundation handed out pink ribbons to participants in its New York City race for breast cancer survivors. If you don't have a pink Ribbon on hand, you can either make one or wear something similar like a pink necklace!

Wear a pink necklace for an eye-catching BCA accessory! The idea of the colour pink was actually derived from the popular red ribbon for AIDS awareness. Now, since Breast Cancer doesn't only happen in women, a blue ribbon is given to represent that men are also part of the awareness campaign

Early symptoms of breast cancer involves self breast examinations. In a nutshell, if your breast feels different, changes its appearance, and discharges bloody or clear liquid, then you better got to the doctor quick. Using your pink bag, don't forget to bring your all documents to give the doctor a clearer picture of your medical history.

If the iconic pink ribbon is not enough for you, pair it with pink heels or sneakers for a chic look for a cause. The pink ribbon actually represents fear of breast cancer, hope for the future, and the charitable goodness of people and businesses who publicly support the breast cancer movement. It's also a way to associate oneself with breast cancer, by promoting breast cancer awareness and supporting fundraising efforts.



Pink Nail Polish

Sport Pink Nail Polish on your tips for an easy pink statement! While you're at it, let them know that it is a myth that microwaves, mobile phones, deodorant, and caffeine are what causes breast cancer.


In fact, aside from damage to a cell's DNA, there is no exact of this disease. People exposed to high risk factors (such as drinking and smoking) and a family background of breast cancer, can acquire the disease but it is not always the case. Just like any other disease, prevention is always the key. So start living a healthy lifestyle from this day on!
