winter makeup vibes

My holiday party aesthetic this year consisted of glitter cat-eyes and metallic lips, but now that I’ve had my last work day of 2016, I’m back at home in Extreme Nesting (and Media Consumption*) Mode, and damn am I feeling these #looks by Korean makeup artist Joonyoul Seung:

I saw this first photo on /r/AsianBeauty back in early November, and I haven’t been able to get it out of my head ever since. Here’s a more wearable version:

Doe eyes, flushed cheeks, and rosy lips! It’s all very modern-day Snow White, but bakery AU! Or, like, katerspie.

(It’d take me a few weeks of religiously applying Vitamin C serum to get my skin bright/even enough to apply such heavy blush, but honestly the biggest deterrent for me is the fact that this makeup looks best with clean, barely-styled hair, which means I’d actually have to wash my hair more than once a week. One can dream…)
