I’m gonna show you how I went from this beet head to a bomba latina from Korea. I do a story time while painting my face with products i bought in Seoul don’t forget to click on the notification bell after subscribing or you gonna lose your big toe. Let’s get into the video turnip’s head! So today I’m gonna do an orange makeup korean inspired. Most of the people wore this makeup look specially girls so that’s what i’m going to do. I also tell stories about how I felt as a black woman in korea, how it went, if they are nice, if they plant trees. Ok let’s being, little house in the prairies vibes i start with lip balm then i use my lotion by COSRX, i bought it in korea This trip in Seoul was literally the best trip of my life I did a vlogs so you can check on my channel i did lot of vlogs, food vlogs, a vlog with my korean friends! yes I had friends there so check my video if you want to see how it was. I’m gonna start with the eyes so I went to Etude House to buy some products most of it was skincare product but i bought makeup too So i enter and ask the saleswoman “just to give me the most used eyeshadow.” Of course i didn’t ask this way I was like Don’t know why but i felt like I had to be soft on my way of talking in Korea in french i talk like a savage but you know in Korea it seems like you must speak softly af. So she gave me this it calls “look at my eyes” and it’s a really pretty orange so that’s what i’m gonna use for the looK Il’m gonna start with my eyebrows. I heard so many things before going to korea. Most of the people said “i’m so afraid to go there, they’re known to be racist…” “they don’t like black people” in a way i had kinda bad expectation because i watched videos of black american girls who lived in korea and she said that they were strange, they touched her hair without her permition In my mind I was like “if someone sneaks out to touch my hair…” I’m gonnas fight I transform into Bruce Lee right away I do mini eyebrows because Koreans have straight eyebrows But mine are not straight so deal with it I use the “Tame and frame” from NYX I think every experience is different but can have some similarities with what they’ve been through and what I’ve been through. Nevertheless, this trip in Korea was the most rewarding trip I did in my life for the moment So I went there with 2 friends, you’ll see them in my vlog honestly it was so fun The funny thing is that I didn’t know these girls that much, we were not that close but it just happened that we went on that trip together Well I can do another video on this topic: law of attraction, zodiac signs, witches and weird stuff anyway we weren’t that close at the beginning but we had so much fun and now we are close We lived in a guest house with an other group on french girls I think they were 8 in their room Not 8 I’m going too far, gonna say 6 in another room there were 2 chinese girls Anyway I can’t describe how excited we were when we arrived THE ultimate happiness! we’ve waited for this trip for so long and we finally arrived and in fact we didn’t experienced that much racism there were some strange behaviors but I think it was mostly ignorance an curiosity than racism Cause for me, racism means you don’t like someone because he is from a different “race” than yours or you don’t like a specific origin So you’re trying to be mean to the person, or insult the person or reject the person But that didn’t happened to us AT ALL first of all, there were not that much people who touched my hair, because of course I went there with my natural curly hair. We didn’t try to look like them, we didn’t straighten our hair We went there as who we are, being ourselfs I’m going to start with an orange eyeshadow, this one. it’s really orange. I use a NYX fluffy brush and I pick a lot of product I’m gonna put it right on my crease and out corner of the eye So yeah I think it was mostly ignorance because they all have straight hair even when they do a “korean perm” they don’t get real curls like our curly hair, it’s just slightly waivy It’s different so they are just not use to see this type of hair Even if there are much more foreigner now. There were so many french people! too many, many, many french people In fact, koreans were nice with us, they helped us without the need to ask for help This time when we went to McDonald I’m so pissed off because I didn’t record this moment even if i did a vlog this specific day So we were at McDo, and with the 2 other dumbass we were looking for food to order we wanted to order with the order terminal because we don’t speak korean so it was easier with the terminal But the thing is, we couldn’t pay by cash with the terminal but we only had cash So we thought of taking our order in picture and show the cashier what we want to order But we struggled, don’t remember why we were looking around because we didn’t know what to do And next to us, there were this guy who saw us struggling so he came next to us and said: with his cute accent! And my two dumbass friends were so happy! Well I was happy too But they were so happy like: it was so funny! So we explained that we can’t speak korean and can’t pay with the terminal because we only had cash And he said “it’s okay, I’m going to order to the cashier for you so you can pay there” So he ordered for us and talked to the cashier He was very nice! A foreigner who struggle in the McDo of Châtelet (Paris) No one gonna help him. Everyone is so stressed out of with this McDo because it’s so desorganized I’m gonna us this transition shade called “Sandalwoods” I use it after the orange because we want to focus on the orange put it right here, just to add another color that just orange Next I go back to the same orange but this time I pick less product and apply to my lid We were looking for drinking straws but couldn’t find any So we opened up our cups and drank directly like that there was this couple just behind us, they surelly saw us looking for straws but didn’t find The guy came and gave us straws Now I’m going to us the Etude house’s product. By the way, korean product looks very pigmented in the pot But when you use it, it doesn’t look the same. In my finger it’s really orange but when I swatch it, it have more of gold shimmer than orange and it’s not that pigmented that’s why their makeup look so soft I apply it right in the center of my lid with my finger In the shop it’s quite different, you are here to spend money so they surely will be nice to you in fact I think there is hypocrisy In france, salesperson don’t care about you, you come, do your life, buy the product and that’s it but in Korea, the moment you come everyone goes nicely “hello” they come to help you, by the way, something strange, they follow you they follow you like you are going to steal something, but it’s just to be near you in case you need help at the beginning they are really nice to you, but if you can’t make up your mind or they see you won’t buy anything, they give up on you so harshly, they literally show you that you pissed them off because you waisted their time in a way I think it’s so rude Now we are doing the face, I use the Urban Decay All Nighter fondation as usual The time we wore the traditional clothes “Hanbok” We went to the palace and everybody was staring at us. from the moment we went out of the store, everybody was staring at us I did a vlog this day too I did a vlog everyday so just check my channel And there were those group of chinese tourist you know those chinese daddies you often see near the Eiffel Tower We walked in the parc and I beging to notice that people are taking picture of us secretly, they don’t want us to know I noticed a woman who put her phone like this to us, and when I turn around, she hides her phone So I really saw her taking picture of us I’m going to put concealer from Sephora So I said to my friends “I think people are taking picture of us!” Then we arrived in a parc with trees and fruits and a chinese woman come to us and asked nicely for a picture together So of course we said yes, she was really happy she went back to her group, maybe she said she took picture with us and then all the chinese group ran to us to take picture, everybody at the same time everyone like literally all of them! they jumped on us to take picture, they were like “Oh you are so pretty! let’s take picture together!” we were so shook because they all came at the same time, all together like boom we didn’t understand what’s going on at first we were scared but in fact they were so nice, they said how pretty we were, and yes they touched our hair at this time they said we were really pretty and asked where are we from it was clear that they are not use to see people like us wearing this type of traditional clothes In fact nobody were mean to us, they welcome us with open arms yes I’m talking about this chinese group but korean people who were there were very nice too they found us cute and pretty too regarding the racism in Korea, I think that people get scared for nothing in fact we were really happy, no racism, everyone was nice and friendly but of course I had bad experiences too this time we went into a shop and the saleswoman was mean to us we went into the shop nobody welcome us as usual and once I found the pruduct I wanted to buy, I took it and this saleswoman ran to me and grab me and she said “no no no don’t touch” like I was going to steal the product I said “I want to buy this” and she said “what do you want exactly?” so I repeat “I want to buy this” then she said “okay” she took out her arm and I went to the cashier but honestly that pissed me off. My friends were laughing but we were so shook and it’s not because this one woman though I was going to steal her product and behave like that korean people are racist, not at all. It was just her who was bumb we went to the beach with the girls, and there was this old man who drove the bus first of all, we were so lost I use this brown color under my eyes bo back with the shimmery product and put it right under the center of my eyes take the bronzer from NYX in the shade “deep tan” we go in the bus, I needed to recharge my card but couldn’t find any he said something to me but I don’t speak korean so I said nicely ” I’m sorry I don’t understand” he repeat but he yelled at me like crazy like in the korean drama when the old man are angry and they yell it was exactly like that he yelled at me so harshly So I was pissed off so I leaved and set in the bus and I could hear him still yelling from where I was then a person come to us and asked us where we wanna go to make sur it was the right bus and we sait to the beach and it was the right bus but I swear this day I was so pissed off because this ajushy things was… apart from that, everyone was fine just there are many people staring at us on the street especially old people, old Ajushis and Ajumas couldn’t take their eyes of us they could staring at us all day long like “the Lascars” episode “the deadly glare” I applied fake lashes but I choose the wrong ones, they are bit too fluffy for a korean look but anyway it doesn’t fit the korean look at all because they prefer more discreet lashes but mine are the ones you use to fly away form ugliness for the lipstick I have this one called “carrot” from The seam, it’s also a korean product I don’t know if I will only use this one, obviously not, but here it is alone Well I think it’s not that bad but I will quote it with my 3CE liptint in the shade “fairy cake” I’m going to put the color “Moondust” in the inner corner of my eyes I’ll finish with highlighter, it’s the “Global glow” from MAC also on my nose Well! sadly I have to finish the video with my phone because I don’t have battery anymore So this is the final look it’s really the color that korean girls used and I think it’s also suits my skin color, it’s suits brown people though for a spring or summer makeup it would be perfect give me your thoughts do you like it or not? also tell me if you had expectations (good or bad) about Korea or another country you heard so much of that you get scared I’ll post this look on my Instagram those of you who don’t follow me on Instagram go to hell See you next time! kisses everybody!
