In this series, I talk about and recommend makeup videos on Youtube, so that you don’t have to sift through all those channels to look for something that fits you.
One of my favourite Korean MUA is definitely Heizle, and I religiously watch many of her videos because her looks are something I would definitely love to try. While Pony’s styles are usually more glamorous, loud and bold, Heizle focuses on a ‘natural’ look. She also has the occasional videos where she replicates famous K-pop stars’ looks.
The first video of hers that I watched was this:

Looking at the product list alone was enough to make me go @.@ I’m betting that all the products added up together is probably worth $400.
What’s worth taking note is that Heizle’s skin is already fantastic, so it makes her base makeup application a lot faster and easier than most of us. I usually always spend the most time trying to conceal all the imperfections on my skin, which leaves me not much time to do stuff like contour. She also makes the eyebrows look so easy to do, which I can frankly say is NEVER the case for me 😦
The highlight of this makeup look, besides the fair skin (which I do not have), is the eyes. She spends a majority of the video working on her eyeshadow and tear liner, but I highly suspect that she actually spends most of the time in real life sticking on her false eyelashes. I’m not a falsies person, and if you’re not one as well you could consider skipping that step. Her eyeshadow, however, is really fascinating. I like how she explains carefully how to create a layered look that resembles falling snow here. It’s very important if you’re looking to recreate it because there’s a high chance you will look like you have an eye infection if you don’t blend properly.
Her blush was also very interesting – I’ve often seen Korean girls apply blush at the cheekbone area to look more doll-like, which actually looks really cute. The blush intensity does scare me a little though because despite it looking great on screen, it will look a little too intense in real life.
This video really sparked my interest in Heizle’s channel and I started watching her videos frequently. What’s also commendable about this is that you can definitely skip a few steps here and there if you’re not keen on, say, using so many products just on the eyes alone. Also, even if you don’t have skin as fair as her, the look will still fit you. It definitely gives your a skin a radiant, healthy glow with all the pinks and shimmery details.
Overall, I would say that her makeup look is certainly doable, but of course not the most affordable, and definitely the most time-consuming. If you are trying this out for the first time, I would recommend setting aside at least 45 minutes.
