Australian beauty and lifestyle Youtuber, Kim Dao gives her followers a peek into her life with a video detailing her regular morning/ winter skin care routine while living in Japan.
First, after about 10 alarms, Kim Dao wake ups, but she doesn’t actually get out of bed for another 30 minutes. She likes to sit in bed playing games on her phone and checking her social media. Her current favorite game is Best Friends, a puzzle-adventure game. When she finally decides to get up, and out of bed the first thing she does is get coffee. She loves sweet coffee. Since it’s winter, her breakfast of choice is oats with honey.
After breakfast, she starts her daily grooming and skincare routine; brush teeth, wash face—using TONYMOLY Pokemon Foam Cleanser—moisturizes skin, put on make-up. Kim Dao explains that because her skin becomes extra dry during the winter, she uses the Etude House Moistfull Collagen kit, as she used it last winter and it worked wonderfully. She uses the kit in exactly this order: Essence, toner, Essence, lotion, and then moisturizer.
Now onto her make-up routine. She primes her face with Etude House Beauty Shot Face Blur and then goes over it with HERA UV Mist Cushion Cover. Then she goes in with The SAEM Cover Perfection Tip Concealer and covers up small bumps and her dark circles. She sets her make-up with Skinfood Peach Sake Silky Finish Powder. Next, she fills in her brows using the KATE Designing Eyebrow. Before doing her eyes, she primes them with ETUDE HUSE Proof 10 Primer, and then uses the Too Faced The Chocolate Bar Eye Palette to make a slight smokey eye. She then does a winged eyeliner using Mote Mascara Japan – Furofushi Mote liner Liquid. She curlers her eyelashes then applies Etude House Curl Fix Mascara. Then she pats on some coral blush from TheBalm How ‘Bout Them Apples? Lip and Cheek Cream Palette onto her cheeks. Then she contorts her face using Too Cool for School Art Class by Rodin Shading and Highlighter. Lastly, she finishes her make-up with Innisfree Real Fluid Rouge lipgloss.
After make-up, she picks out a casual outfit—jeans and jacket. Before heading out, she puts some hair oil in her hair and packs a light bag with her phone, camera, and wallet. And now Kim Dao is ready for her day!
