From my last post about the Vitamin, I have mentioned that the serum is one of the most effective forms of skincare product. Serum is the skincare product that is in a concentrated form of certain function which plays the biggest role in skincare part, from my point of view. The reason why I am saying this is because it has high density nourish-ment and directly effect on our skin layer. Many people have asked me what is the difference between serum and the essence, and what I have researched, they are pretty much the same and the serum tends to show little bit more higher density. So, there is no need to use them both since they play fairly similar roles.
Starting from concern that almost every woman has different skin type and issue, cosmetic companies have come up with the various types of serums. Many serums in the market has different functions, such as starting from hydration, brightening, anti-aging, trouble caring and so on. Those products can treat your concern about skincare.
Honestly, I used to think that serums are the skincare products for relatively older generation and thought toner and emulsion (during the winter time, moisture cream is added to that) is enough for my skin since I really do not like to over layer my skin, covering up with the various products. But when tried the serum, it felt very similar to the skin treatment that I used to receive from aesthetic spa. Unlike the other skin care products, you can feel your skin response in earliest time sequence.
When you take a look at the texture of the serum, generally, they are in a form of in between toner and emulsion. I guess it could be said that runny water texture. So especially for the spring or summer, when you want the lighter skin care than the heavy cream or sleeping pack, but don’t want to miss out the functional aspect of skincare step, serum is perfect for that. It is because your skin can absorbs the product right away since it has watery texture and it does not feel like another layer on your skin.
For upcoming post, I’ll bring up the different serums from Wishtrend.com and compared them by its function!
It has been a while that I filmed this video, there have been some changes about the products that I carry these days. Sooner or later, I will be posting how I do the daily make up (in these days).

가로수길, hence known as tree-lined street is hot spot for young people which is normally jammed with fashion people during the weekend or night. It is located nearby Cheongdam-dong and Apgujeong-dong area, the south part of Seoul. There are many other trendy streets in Seoul, but what makes Garosu-gil more distinctive than other is combination of hip&trendy design shops and various multi-brand shops(including cosmetics) from all around the world.
The product that I used for this make-up in the video are linked below
Seoul is getting cooler and the weather is fresher than any other moment! If you’re planning for a visit to Seoul or either South Korea, definitely book your flight around this time! Seoul’s September or October is the most beautiful time around the year. Anyway, weather is changing and our styling and makeup choices are changing accordingly. Especially my nail polish collection is getting darker and more autumn-ish. I’m definitely having a hard time to choose my nail color since fall nail colors are the most elegant throughout any season. For someone who doesn’t really enjoy wearing jewelry, the best accessory for fall is a nice nail lacquer. Here I picked something dark and stormy, but also fresh. Keep your nails short and square with rounded corners and apply two generous layers of lacquer finished with a glossy top coat. For the jean-like color, I used Aritaum Modi Nails “#46. Boy’s Jean” and for a fun accent I topped Aritaum Modi Nails “#38. Rock Star”.
Let me know what’s your favorite fall color!! xx Liah.
