Makeup Artist Robert Welsh’s Step-By-Step Guide to the Perfect Shimmery Look
K Beauty is definitely setting new standards of the beauty world. First driven by the popularity of K-Pop idols but now more and more people incorporate K Beauty skincare and makeup products into their daily routine after trying some of the Korean beauty brands themselves. It’s incredible that Korean beauty products deliver high quality with such a low price. This time, we have one of our favorite makeup artists on Youtube, Robert Welsh, to share some of his personal picks of affordable Korean beauty products.
If you have dry skin or oily skin, we would say taking care of it is pretty straightforward — hear us out — by comparing it to combination skin. If you’re having a little bit of both oily shine and dry patches on your face, just like Robert, your skincare routine may start to get complicated. For his pre-makeup skincare steps, Robert recommends 3 K Beauty skincare productsto keep things simple: The Simple Calming Toner and The Simple Daily Lotion from SCINIC + THANK YOU FARMER’s Sun Project Light Sun Essence.
Featured K Beauty Skincare Product: SCINIC’s The Simple Calming Toner
SCINIC’s The Simple Calming Toner is a mild acidic toner, which is perfect for sensitive skin. Robert does say that his skin is not incredibly sensitive but he won’t need to worry about his skin being irritated if using a toner that is made for sensitive skin. This toner is enriched with madecassoside, water lily flower extract and aloe vera leaf to moisturize and soothe skin.

If you’re having very oily skin but also extremely dehydrated at the same time, then you should follow Robert’s suggestion to try SCINIC's The Simple Daily Lotion. He personally prefers using lightweight skincare products for his morning skincare routine to make sure his face is hydrated and prepped for his makeup. And let’s not forget to wear sunscreen every single day even if you’re staying inside—Robert’s pick is the THANK YOU FARMER’s Sun Project Light Sun Essence
After getting your skin prepped, you would like to wait for a couple minutes letting your skincare sink into your skin before starting your daily makeup regimen. Robert follows to share some of his favorite K Beauty makeup products to glam and glow – spot-treating with a concealer and a lightweight foundation cushion.
Featured K Beauty Makeup Product: MACQUEEN’s Air Fit Cover Concealer
Robert starts off with MACQUEEN’s Air Fit Cover Concealer, which comes in a slim size and a big size. The slim one is perfect to fit in your handbag or any carryalls, while the big one offers a more convenient option of covering up bigger spots. You can also follow Robert’s suggestion to use the big one as a foundation for extra coverage to your makeup, or a lightweight one, like Robert’s favorite moonshot’s Micro Settingfit Cushion if you prefer a more natural, breathable coverage.

You know that the right shade of blush can brighten your complexion, create fuller cheekbones and even be that ‘look at me’ call to warm up your makeup look. Robert blends the moonshot’s Air Blusher and MEMEBOX’s I'M Meme I'M Afternoon Tea Blusher Palette to lend his makeup look a muted pink finish.
After you’ve got the flawless foundation set up, then it’s time to show your creativity with colors — we’re talking about vibrant eye makeup look. It doesn’t need to go wild of having the rainbow colors building up on your lids; you can follow what Robert does to mix and match shades of pink and brown and top it off with a hint of shimmer to create that ‘all eyes on me’ vibe.
Featured K Beauty Makeup Product: heimish’s Dailism Eye Palette
You can start off with soft pink, blending it through the socket. Then, create definition and an illusion of rounded doe eyes with brown shades around the inner and outer corners. Finish the eye makeup look with the glittery shimmer at the center of your eye lids to create the highlighted effect. The three eyeshadow palettes Robert mixes and matches to create his art are: CORINGCO’s Shabamshabam Eyeshadow Palette + heimish’s Dailism Eye Palette. And don’t forget to line your lashes with the MACQUEEN Waterproof Gel Eyeliner.

— What do you think about your final look?
Robert: I’m so happy with this makeup look! The eyeshadows are so incredibly pigmented and the pop of shimmer in the middle is just incredible. I’m quite picky when it comes to blusher and I like to go a little more pink so the moonshot Air Blusher is just perfect! These eyeshadow palettes are just stunning and absolutely beautiful. Not to mention my skin looks and feels great. You can see the THANK YOU FARMER sunscreen hasn’t interfered with my makeup in any way, and it brings such a nice glow to my skin!
