This is not a post about makeup.

I was going to do a post about eyeshadows, but I felt that talking about what is happening in the world is more important. 

I am not doing a formal post because I want to show solitude to all the Britans who were affected by the bombing after the concert in Manchester, the Filipinos/Filipinas who were affected by maute in Minadao, the Thai people who were affected by the bombing at a hospital in Bangkok, and the car bombing in Syria.

I urge everyone to read and share stories to build awarness around these issues. The New York Times reported on the Manchester bombing, here (caution, the photo may be graphic to some); and the Bangkok hospitial bombing, here. BBC News  reported on the Manchester bombing, here. The Washington Post reported on Duterte declaring martial law in Marawi, here. France24 wrote about the car bombing in Syria, here

Please share credible sources, not just random tweets. I was mislead on some tweets regarding the Philipines. The Fillipino Police asked the its people to refrain using social media and spreading videos and images that could affect the safety of its civilians and military.

I am absolutley stunned and heartbroken over these events.

Please spread positivity and unity.

Stay safe everyone.

What makeup does SM Entertainment use on their idols?

KPOP_MAKEUP_PIN

After researching for quite some time, I am finally ready to share this post with everyone. Today, I will be sharing my research on what makeup SM Entertainment, A Korean Entertainment company, uses on their idols. I like to think of this post as a piece of ratchet investigative journalism because I cannot 100% conclude this is the makeup SM idols use, but I can give some propelling evidence.

Also, before we begin, any links with an asterisk (*) are affiliate links.

WHY DO WE WANT TO KNOW?

Right now, the Korean beauty industry is booming due to their specialization in natural looking makeup. When idols go on music shows, most of the comments under their performance videos are not in regard to their talent, but how beautiful they all are. And trust me when I say this, THEY ARE BEYOND TALENTED.

I used to buy a lot of Korean beauty products, thinking that using them I would look as beautiful as an idol. Therefore, I always believed Korean idols wore BB Creams when they perform. However, a few years ago, I was watching Hyuna (formerly of 4MINUTE ;_;) and saw she was wearing a BB Cream which left a very obvious white cast on her face, video here. Which made me ask the question...What kind of makeup do idols actually wear?

This started my journey to the truth...
