What are you living in? Many women in the world are interested in make-up and fashion to make herself more attractive and fashionable. I have a friend who is studying them right now around me. When entering the room, her dressing table is filled with huge amounts of lipsticks, eye shadows and other cosmetics. Moreover, her closet is also full of various kinds of clothes including sporty, lovely and casual dresses. How did she get into these make-up and fashion fields?
Q. When did you begin your career in beauty and make-up, and what was your motivation to start? There was not any specific motive to start, but I wanted to learn about them since I was an elementary school student. While I was walking down the street, I casually saw Anyangcheon Stream. I thought it would be nice to make clothes with this beautiful scenery on it. In addition, I wanted to make my own make-up, which suited my own clothes. Studying beauty and make-up more to improve my skills, my career began in earnest when entering the beauty and make-up department in high school.
Q. What effort did you make for your dream?
I went to a private educational institute to strengthen my foundation on make-up, and I tried to follow several beauty Youtubers, watching their clips to further enhance my ability to have a wide application. For fashion, I made my puppy clothes by myself and I reformed my own outfits a lot. To become proficient at designing clothes, I read a lot of foreign fashion magazines and subscribed consistently to some fashion blogs, to check various kinds of daily fashions. I considered clothes’ design by drawing a picture of myself during viewing beautiful scenery.
Q. What is your own make-up style and dress style?
When wearing clothes, I focus mainly on colors. For example, if you wear something in black, you can make a point to mix in a yellow color, which contrasts with black on your dress. Moreover, it is great to standardize a genre of accessories such as choosing between being bohemian and kitsch. Personally, I like add bright colors on my own dress.
I prefer that make-up which gets along well with my fashion. More specifically, I usually wear make- up using some colors that fit well with the clothes and that are similar to the color of the clothes. I tend to focus on overall atmosphere while doing make-up. Each of the eye, skin, lip and cheek make- up may look pretty, but when putting them together, it could be weird sometimes. Therefore, you’d better be careful. For good example, if your eye make-up is brown, you can make it look harmonious by lightly putting rose on your cheeks.
Q. What are the trends in fashion you think of today?
Nowadays, I think retro is a trend. Many people not only wear wide pants or bootcut pants, but also hair bands and round, wire-rimmed eyeglasses for accessories.
Q. Could you recommend an eye make-up, like a good combination of eye shadows?
Put on a reddish-brown eye shadow for base and lightly wear a red color to give spot effects. Another way is to apply a golden colored eye shadow on your eyelid, that already has an orange or pink

colored eye shadow, to double your cuteness. Furthermore, you can emphasize your eyes by putting on a unique color like yellowish green or light purple eye shadow on the head part of your eyelid. In addition, drawing a light purple or pastel tone colored eyeline can look pretty or fascinating. In fact, filling in the mucous membrane of your eye is bad for your eye, so you’d better only do it occasionally.
Q. There are many cases where shading just makes your face dark. What is the effective way of shading?
Usually, people who have cheek fat or a short nose do shading to make their face look small or to have a prominent nose. They tend to do shading thickly to cover their complex, but most of the people don't carry that out well. Therefore, blending is very important. Blending makes awkward shading more natural. It is all the same for drawing eyebrows. It is not just drawing, but blending. Blending is essential for all make-up.
Q. Which items do you recommend?
Eyebrow gel is the most recommended of all cosmetics. It is commonly known as an eyebrow tattoo, which is recommended for people with thin eyebrows. I am currently using it and it is really fixed well and very convenient. It is not an item, but I want to recommend one checkup called personal color. When you get this test, it tells you what color fits you well. However, this is simply for reference and advice, and you don't need to dwell on it.
Q. What style of dressing do you recommend?
Don't be afraid to wear a skirt or shorts because you have extra weight. Short bottoms look slimmer rather than long ones. In addition, wearing bottoms whose waistline is high can make legs look longer. It is commonly known that tucking the front of an oversized shirt in your bottoms is a great way of lengthening one’s legs. However, it may not be good for people who have short legs, in other words, who have a low waistline. It will be better for them to not tuck their top in their bottoms
Q. What would you recommend when dressing up?
Among the products I have, the item I wanted to recommend is a hat. The more hats you have, the better style you can make. Using a hat, you can have more fashion points with accessories, and you can even increase the degree of completion on your fashion.
