11/19Double cleanse

Double cleanse

Double cleanse is a method of cleansing like the name suggests and happens to be immensely popular in Korea. In this, you first need to use an oil-based cleanser to remove oil-soluble makeup like mascara and lipstick and then you follow up with a foaming cleanser. Double cleansing can actually work wonders for your skin which is why the method is so popular.




Typically, eyeliner is applied to the upper and/or lower lash line, but with tightlining, eyes look bigger and makeup looks more natural. Whether you use a thin eyeliner brush and gel liner or a traditional waterproof pencil, line the inside of your upper lash line, then apply mascara to blend the lash roots with the liner. The technique takes some practice, but your eyes will pop.


13/19Konjac sponge

Konjac sponge

Konjac has been a main ingredient in Japanese beauty products, but when the konjac sponge was recently released in the U.S., the beauty world went nuts. The small, often egg-shaped sponges can be used for cleansing and exfoliating the skin, either with or without the use of product. Either way, the surface of your face will feel completely refreshed with regular use.




Ditch the razor in favor of sugaring, a hair removal technique similar to waxing, but with a few key differences. First, the sugaring paste is made up of sugar and all-natural ingredients. The paste is applied to the area where hair will be removed, and once the paste is dry, it’s removed in the opposite direction of hair growth. No strips, no paper, nothing but the paste is used to remove the hair.




Balayage happens to be a French hair-colouring technique from the 1970s. With this technique, hair stylists use their free hand skills to colour a person's hair rather than using foil. And since the end product looks more natural than foiling, most people have started opting for this technique instead.




Parabens are preservatives that found their way into cosmetics during the 1950s and have since then continued to be used in cosmetics to help prevent bacterial growth. However, what most people don't know is that parabens can over time get deposited in the body which can lead to an imbalance in estrogen levels which can cause damage to the body. This is why it's best to opt for products that do not contain parabens.




Microblading is a tattooing technique in which a small handheld tool made of several tiny needles is used to add semi-permanent pigment to the skin. These days most people opt for microblading to get their eyebrows shaped. Since it looks a lot more natural than artificial brows, the technique has also started gaining immense popularity.


18/19Occlusive Agents

Occlusive Agents

Occlusive agents happen to be ingredients that are found in moisturisers and are used to form a barrier on the skin to help retain moisture in the skin. Ingredients like Jojoba oil or mineral oil often contain occlusive agents. And while these may work really well for dry skin, they do tend to feel greasy on oily skin.




Much like the name suggests, multi-masking is the technique of applying multiple masks on the face, separately for each section. This technique works really well for combination skin since it can individually tackle the problems of dry skin and oily skin.
