Laneige - The Secret To The Flawless Skin! ❤


Last Saturday, I was one of the top 10 bloggers to be selected to join the Laneige K-Beauty Blogger Workshop at Centrepoint, Midvalley. I am really fortunate enough to be selected as part of the team to join the workshop. Thank you Nuffnang and Laneige for the once-a-lifetime opportunity. 


I was at the Amore Pacific office which is located at the Centrepoint, Midvalley half an hour earlier because I was afraid that I might be lost in Midvalley looking for the office. I was kinda excited to this workshop as I get to learn some tips on how to achieve Korean beauty look.


I always envy Koreans celebrities who have flawless skin despite putting on heavy makeup for performances each time. At the same time, they are able to maintain the skin soft, supple and radiant. I also want flawless skin like them. T.T 

Back to the topic. While waiting for other bloggers to turn up, I began to take photos around the office. I actually spotted their best seller products which are the Laneige Snow BB Cushion, Water Bank Essence, Water Sleeping Pack and White Plus Renew Essence.

Laneige Water Bank Essence and Laneige Water Sleeping Pack.

Even the top Korean celebrity, Miss Song Hye Gyo, the brand ambassador for Laneige, personally love this product.


"I am sure everyone has had this experience - that it is not very easy to find a flawless makeup that fits their skin tone. But Laneige Snow BB Cushion is what I have been looking for. It offers high skin affinity to appear as natural as my own skin"

Once all the bloggers had arrived at the location, we were ushered to a workshop room where we were told to remove all the makeup as we are require to have hands-on experience on applying the makeup to achieve K-beauty look. We were given some briefings before we started our workshop refreshments were provided in case we were hungry. :P

We were told to remove all the makeup as we need to have hands-on experience on applying makeup to create Korean beauty look.  The makeup artist, Miss Geraldine Loy was there to teach us on how to apply makeup on the face.

On the other hand, Miss Geraldine taught us on step-by-step makeup tips. She was so patient enough to teach all of us. She guided us all through from the skincare to makeup tips.There are basic 4 steps in the Laneige Skincare routine. We always start Korean skincare layering routine after cleansing of the face. 

1. Refiner to purify the skin
2. Emulsion for balancing  the skin moisture
3. Essence for intensive car
4. Cream for protection 

Clockwise from left to right: Laneige White Plus Renew Skin Refiner, Laneige White Plus Renew Emulsion, Laneige White Plus Renew Essence and Laneige Water Supreme Primer BBase SPF 15 PA+ in Light Pink.

The first step is Laneige White Plus Renew Skin Refiner to remove the makeup residues, impurities and dead cells  followed by Laneige White Plus Renew Emulsion which forms a moisture barrier, keeping the skin brighter and more transparent. The third step would be Laneige White Plus Renew Essence. The final step for protection is Laneige Water Supreme Primer Base SPF 15 PA+. 

Sorry readers that I did not take any photos during the skincare products application because I was too attentive listening to Miss Geraldine’s tips. :P

Miss Geraldine explained on the benefits of the Snow BB Cushion.

Snow BB Soothing Cushion has all-in-one miracle worker that takes care of our skin inside out. It combines the benefits of whitening, sunscreen and makeup base products, for skin that’s dewy fresh, clear and protected. It protects us from the harsh effects of sun exposure with its SPF 50 PA+++ while giving us the fresh coverage that we need, especially if we’re out and about under the sun. Not only that, this Snow BB Cushion can be carried anywhere we like because of its size.  


Here’s the five important benefits that Snow BB Soothing Cushion can provide:
 1. Sweat-proof - The sweat-proof formula helps to ensure the makeup stays unspoilt and beautiful throughout the day. 
2. Whitening - Contains patented White Plus Renew Complex with strong melanin reduction ingredients for increased skin luminosity.
3. Hydration - Unique hydration technology forms a Hydro-mineral suspension, providing 30% more moisture to the skin with each application. 
4. Makeup - Provides long-lasting coverage against blemishes and dark eye circles. 
5. SPF 50 PA+++ - Acts as a sunscreen with SPF 50 PA+++ to protect skin from the sun's damaging UV rays.

The materials which rubycell and poly-urethane are processed with a special technology that is able to hold nine times more water than its weight for supple and glossy skin. The texture is known as the new-generation puff as it is able to conceal the pores and makes the face radiant and natural-looking skin with its firm and supple texture.

Miss Geraldine taught us to fold the puff into half especially when we apply on the small area such as eyes, lip area

Miss Geraldine was showing on how to apply on the temples of the face.

Powder brush was used to create the matte look on the skin after the Snow BB Cushion application.

Miss Geraldine taught us on how to apply the blusher on the cheeks. 

We created two looks that day. The day look and night look are approximately the same. The difference was that we emphasize more on the eyes by drawing eyeliner thicker on the lower eyes and put on highlighter on the temples, T-zone and forehead to create the shimmery look.

These were some of the products that were used to create the K-beauty look.

I always thought it was really easy to apply makeup - just put on some foundation, blusher, a bit of eyeshadow, mascara and here I go. But during the workshop, I learnt so much from the professional makeup artist, Miss Geraldine Loy. It is hard especially applying on eyebrow. It was never easy for me. =(

Below are some of the photos taken with the rest of bloggers, Miss Geraldine and Nuffie, Sue Ann.

During the night, I tried on the skincare and makeup products and I am going to show you guys right here.

Apply onto puff and smooth along the texture of skin. Then, pat to increase adherence. Apply another layer to improve coverage. If there is no more content after you press the cushion with your finger, it means that the product is finished. Replace with a refill.

How to Take Care of Puff:
Keep the puff clean all the time and gently massage it in lukewarm water with neutral detergent or puff cleanser to wash it. Rinse thoroughly until the detergent is washed away, release all moisture, and dry completely in a shadowy place. This way, you can use it for an extended period of time. 

Safety Suggestions:
Always recap after use. If it is not stored covered, helpful moisturizers and other ingredients can evaporate to shrink the contents.
