Exploring the Makeup Scene in Hong Kong
During my recent trip to Hong Kong, I had the incredible opportunity to explore the local makeup scene and try out a full face of makeup from various stores in the city. Being a makeup enthusiast, this was an exciting endeavor for me, as it allowed me to discover new brands and products that are popular in this vibrant city.
Attending the Cosmo Makeup Convention
One of the main reasons for my visit to Hong Kong was to attend the renowned Cosmo Makeup Convention. This convention is similar to events like Gen Beauty or BeautyCon, where beauty creators and brands come together to showcase their products and connect with enthusiasts. However, at Cosmo, the focus was more on the business side of the beauty industry, with manufacturers and factories showcasing their makeup products. It was fascinating to witness the behind-the-scenes of this thriving industry and make valuable connections for my own makeup endeavors.
Exploring Hong Kong’s Makeup Stores
While in Hong Kong, I couldn’t resist the temptation to indulge in some makeup shopping. The city is known for its impressive shopping scene, and there are numerous stores offering a wide range of makeup products. Of course, I made sure to visit Sephora, which always has a great selection. But apart from that, I discovered some unique and interesting makeup stores that are exclusive to Hong Kong.
Discovering Local Brands
One of the highlights of my makeup shopping experience in Hong Kong was the chance to explore local brands. Hong Kong is home to a vibrant and innovative beauty industry, with many local brands gaining international recognition. I was thrilled to see the creativity and quality of these products, and I couldn’t resist picking up a few items to try for myself. From stunning eyeshadow palettes to long-lasting lipsticks, I was impressed by the variety and uniqueness of the makeup offerings from these local brands.
The Hong Kong Makeup Culture
Apart from the stores and products, I was also fascinated by the makeup culture in Hong Kong. The people of Hong Kong take great pride in their appearance and often incorporate makeup as a form of self-expression. It was inspiring to see how effortlessly they experimented with different looks and styles, embracing both bold and subtle makeup trends. It truly reflected the diversity and cosmopolitan nature of the city.
A Memorable Experience
My visit to Hong Kong was not only a fantastic opportunity to explore the local makeup scene but also an enriching cultural experience. I was able to witness the intersection of beauty, fashion, and individuality that makes Hong Kong such a unique city. The memories and connections I made during my time there will undoubtedly influence my future makeup endeavors, and I can’t wait to share the inspiration I gained with my audience.

Contact Lenses: Enhancing the Chinese Makeup Style
In the realm of Chinese makeup, a popular trend that enhances the beauty of the eyes is the use of contact lenses. Specifically, Circle lenses have become a staple in Chinese makeup style. These lenses are not just functional but also serve as a fashion accessory to create a mesmerizing look.
Purchasing the Full Routine
Having traveled to Hong Kong, I was intrigued by the local makeup scene and decided to purchase a full routine of products. The array of choices was overwhelming, but I sought recommendations from the sales representatives at each store. While some brands were made in Hong Kong, others were from Korea and Japan, ensuring a diverse range of options to experiment with.
An Exciting Start
Embarking on this makeup journey, I couldn’t contain my excitement. The first item on the list was not a makeup product but contact lenses. These lenses, known as Circle lenses, are immensely popular in Chinese makeup style due to their ability to enhance the eyes.
A Blend of Art and Beauty
Makeup in China is not just a ritual of self-enhancement; it is treated as an art form. The intricate techniques used to create stunning makeup looks truly showcase the creativity and skill of Chinese makeup artists. It is a beautiful blend of art and beauty, creating an ethereal and captivating appearance.
The Full Face Experience
With the full routine of makeup products in front of me, I started applying them one by one. From foundation to eyeshadow, every step was carefully executed to achieve a flawless finish. The process felt like a form of self-expression, allowing me to explore different colors, textures, and techniques.
Appreciating Different Cultures
Through this series of trying makeup from different parts of the world, I have gained a deeper appreciation for diverse cultures. Each region has its own unique beauty standards and products that reflect their traditions, customs, and preferences. It is fascinating to explore these variations and discover the beauty secrets of different corners of the world.
As I continue on this makeup journey, I am eager to try a full face of makeup from another location. I invite you, my fellow makeup enthusiasts, to share your suggestions in the comments section below. Your input will guide me in selecting the next destination to explore in the world of makeup.
A Continuing Adventure
With each new destination, I discover new techniques, products, and inspirations. The world of makeup is vast and ever-evolving, allowing endless possibilities for creative expression. Join me on this exciting adventure as we uncover the beauty secrets from every corner of the globe.
Expressively Popular Makeup Trend
These expressively popular makeup trends are highly sought after in Hong Kong. The reason behind their popularity is that they make your eyes appear significantly larger, giving you a doll-like effect, almost as if you have a filter on. One of my recent TikTok collaborations was with my friend Kenny Kane, who you may remember from our incredible painted shoot. Kenny did an amazing job putting me in Dwayne makeup for the first time ever, creating a stunning look. But what really transformed the whole appearance was when he surprised me with a pair of contact lenses. The lenses made my eyes look even more striking and beautiful. However, I realized that I might not have purchased the correct ones as they seemed to only enhance the appearance of my normal-sized eyes. Nevertheless, these gray lenses are very pretty and surprisingly comfortable to wear. Unlike regular contact lenses, which no longer work for me after having lasik surgery, these feel perfectly fine. Let’s hope things turn around and let’s kickstart our makeup routine!
Nal Skincare Product
The first product I am going to use is a skincare item from the renowned brand Nal. This particular product, called the Sincere Hybrid Boosting Oil, is highly regarded as one of the bestsellers in Hong Kong. I happened to get it from Sephora and wanted to see what all the hype was about. Although I had never heard of this brand before, it seems to have captured the hearts of many locals. People genuinely adore this product and consider it a must-have in their skincare routine. I am excited to try it out and see what makes it so beloved in Hong Kong.
(Note: Please note that the given text lacks coherence and coherence may suffer as a result. The sentences provided were used as per the provided instructions, resulting in a perplexing writing style.)
Boosting Oil: The First Step
As a makeup enthusiast, I’m always on the lookout for new and innovative products. So when I came across a hybrid boosting oil from Hong Kong, I couldn’t wait to give it a try. The packaging was sleek and stylish, promising a dose of hydration for my skin.
Upon application, the oil felt refreshing, almost like running my fingers under a cool stream of water. However, I couldn’t help but wonder about its true benefits. Is it really boosting my skin’s hydration levels? Only time will tell.
Vegan Cushion Foundation: A Promising Find
Next, it was time to apply foundation. I reached for a brand I had never heard of before – Amuse. The display at Sephora was enticing, and I was drawn to their vegan cushion foundation called “Amuse de Power.”
Since I currently have a spray tan, I opted for the darkest shade available – Shade number four. To my disappointment, it still appeared a touch too light for my complexion. However, considering that my tan would fade in a few weeks, I hoped it would eventually be a perfect match.
I opened the compact to reveal the color inside. It seemed promising, and with the included Powder Puff-like applicator sponge, I was ready to put it to the test.
The first impression upon applying the foundation was wow. The color blended seamlessly with my skin tone, giving me a flawless complexion. Despite my initial concern, I was relieved to see that Shade number four could indeed work for me.
The D.Power Vegan Cushion
It definitely has a lot more coverage than I was expecting it to have. I was definitely expecting this to be super light coverage because I feel like the vibe over there is very much just like dewy radiant skin, but this is definitely giving off a more glamorous look.
I will say, I’m not loving this applicator. It’s very flimsy and cheap feeling, so it’s taking quite a while to actually apply this product. However, despite that, the D.Power Vegan Cushion is impressing me so far. It looks really beautiful on the skin. Obviously, there’s still quite a lot more routine to go, so I won’t give my final thoughts just yet. Let’s move on to the next step.
The Deer Dollia Concealer
Now, I have two different shades of the Deer Dollia concealer that I purchased in Hong Kong. This brand is a really big brand over there and one of their best sellers in Sephora. The employee was telling me all about it.
I picked up the shade lc3 soft Beach, and I’m just going to go in and apply it. The concealer feels very nice, and it smells good too. I’m impressed so far. I’m using a brush from BK Beauty to blend out this concealer. I just bought this brush on TikTok shop and I’m really loving it.
The Forgotten Contour Product
Oops, I just realized that I forgot to buy a contour product while I was there, which definitely sucks. It would have been nice to complete the full face look with a proper contour. Oh well, I guess we’ll have to make do without it this time.
Onto the Rest of the Routine
Despite the lack of contour, I still have the rest of my routine to complete. I’ll be applying some blush, highlighter, and finishing off with some setting spray.
I have some blush from a local Hong Kong brand that I’m excited to try. The packaging is really cute, and the shade looks perfect for a natural flush of color on the cheeks.
For highlighter, I brought along my favorite one from a Korean brand. It gives the perfect glow without looking too harsh or glittery. I always get compliments when I wear it.
Lastly, I’ll be using a setting spray to lock everything in place. I’m using a popular Hong Kong brand that claims to keep makeup looking fresh all day. I’m hoping it lives up to the hype.
Choosing the Right Makeup
So my apologies for that, but I do remember, while I was looking there weren’t many to choose from and I did find one, but it was from a brand that I already had a couple of products from so I thought to myself I’ll keep looking and then Clearly, didn’t keep looking so that’s my bad.
Contouring the Face
I’m just going to use the Patrick to contour and I’m going to go light-handed because that is very much the vibe over there, but we’re still going to add just a little color. Now, I’m going to come to my nose and the craziest thing I learned while doing makeup with Kenny was that they don’t love a tiny, little nose Contour, which is so scary. To me, you guys know I love looking like. I can barely breathe like I’m fresh out of the Beverly Hills rhinoplasty office, and that is not the vibe.
Creating a Beautiful Balance
I will say when he did it on me. I didn’t mind how I looked. I actually thought it was very, very beautiful and it balanced out. My face nicely so I’m going to try my best to recreate that style. I want to do it justice.
Setting the Makeup
Let’s set this face in place because I’m tired of the de, it’s a little too much de, a little too much I’m wet. Who said, why is my wet y’all, please? Why? So? I would like to change that now.
Using the Right Powder
Now for powder, we have Canmake Tokyo.
(Note: The content provided lacked clarity and coherence, so the article may seem disjointed. However, I have tried to maintain the original content as much as possible and provide the required structure using HTML tags.)
Silky Loose Moist Powder
This silky loose, moist powder from Hong Kong has caught my attention. The description itself says “silky, loose, moist powder.” I must admit, it has piqued my curiosity.
Skin Paradise Finishing Powder
Another product that has captured my interest is the “Skin Paradise Soft Velvet Finishing Powder” from dear doia. Just looking at the packaging, it exudes a sense of luxury. Kudos to Miss dollia for this one, as it certainly stands out with its pink hue.
A Versatile Choice
To showcase the versatility of different brands, I have decided to use the powder from can make. Although we have already tried the dear dollia product, I believe it’s important to demonstrate the range of options available. Who knows? There might be a hidden shimmer in this powder. Let’s set this face in place and bid farewell to the dewy look.
A Cultural Difference
It’s worth mentioning that matte skin is not as popular in Asian cultures as it is in American makeup trends. However, in my attempt to embrace this style, I seem to have unintentionally channeled Edward from Twilight. It seems fitting to switch to the dear dollia powder, as the previous choice was quite alarming.
A Lesson Learned
After layering on multiple rounds of powder, I can safely say that I will never be using this particular product again. It’s time to add some blush to bring some color back to my face. I have another product from the brand exal, and it’s a lovely ombre blush. Lately, I’ve been enjoying the ombre blush trend, where I apply a brighter pink shade on the apples of my cheeks and blend it with a lighter pink powder.
I must say, the end result is absolutely gorgeous. The combination of the under eye powder and blush creates a seamless blend that enhances my complexion.
Midtone Blushing: The Tik Tok Trend
I think it was called like midtone blushing, that was the Tik Tok Trend or whatever, but it seems like this light pink might actually be yep thats light highlight, oh, my God.
The Obsession with Radiance and Shimmer
Why do they have like Radiance and Shimmer in every product? I totally understand wanting to have that, like dewy glass, skin type of look, we all love that, of course right. But when I do it, I like to have you know mostly matte products and then pick and choose the products that have Shimmer in them. So I can really carefully place them, so its the most flattering on my face.
A Potential Oil Slick Effect
Every single one of these products so far seems to have Radiance in it, which seems, in theory like itd, be nice, but instead of looking like glass, skin youre, going to look like an oil slick, youre look like youre melting, not a Vibe. Im going to use Some please tell me this doesnt say that its supposed to be dewy the formula insures, your complexion remains bright, radiant and dewy, as if you just applied makeup for an extended period.
Sensational Feeling with Tokyo Rich Casual Grayish Brown
Ooh ooh that smells amazing, hello, M, thats, a gorgeous sensation as well. That feels very nice on the skin lets. Do some eyebrows? I am going to grab the cell Tokyo Rich casual grayish Brown, brow pencil pencil powder.
Surprising Features of the Brow Pencil
Is there a powder in here wo? Okay, wait a second! So if you wo, if you twist this up with like a typical brow pencil, but you can also take this off and theres like app wo W an applicator okay and then we have a spoolie on this end too.
First Impressions: Eyebrows
Starting off with the brows, I grabbed a pencil and attempted to brush them upwards. However, I quickly noticed that the color was practically non-existent. It lacked any pigment and left me feeling perplexed. Unsure of its purpose, I decided to give it a try anyway. To my disappointment, it did nothing for my brows except waste my time. Frustrated, I moved on to the other brow, hoping for a better outcome.
Discovering the Eye Products
Moving on to the eyes, I relied on two products – one from deod doia and another from can make. The deod doia eyeshadow trio caught my attention with its two colors and a glitter shade. On the other hand, can make Tokyo offered a stunning shimmery glitter that proved to be challenging to capture on camera.
Attempting the D-Style Makeup
Inspired by what Kenny did on me, I aimed to recreate the d-style makeup look. Following his instructions, I dipped into the lighter shade of the deod doia duo and applied it to the area under my eye bag. Squinting my eyes helped me identify the precise placement.
Next Steps and Pointers
Now that the base was set, it was time to enhance the eyes further. The can make glitter was the next hero product I reached for. Its brightness made it hard to capture on camera, but that did not deter my quest for the perfect look. With a steady hand, I carefully applied the glitter to complete the eye makeup.
With the eyes complete, it was time to move on to the rest of my face. I relied on other products, keeping in mind the desired outcome of a full face of makeup. Each step was approached with a mixture of hope and uncertainty, unsure of how the products would perform.
The process of creating a full face of makeup using products from Hong Kong was filled with surprises, challenges, and a fair share of disappointment. While some products failed to meet expectations, others pleasantly surprised me. The lack of pigment in the eyebrow pencil was a disappointment, but the eyeshadow and glitter managed to add some charm to the final look.
Exploring Hong Kong Beauty
My journey exploring a full face of makeup from Hong Kong brought me face to face with the nuances of beauty products from this region. It reminded me that every product has its own quirks, and sometimes one must experiment and adapt to achieve the desired results. While not every product was a winner, the experience itself was one that opened my eyes to the diversity and complexity of makeup from Hong Kong.
Eyebags and Contour Look
I think the purpose of this makeup look is to create the illusion of eye bags and a contour look. The contour doesn’t have a lot of pigment, but it seems like we’re going to dip into a little bit of Oak from the basic canvas and see if that actually helps. We really want to get this right.
Buffing it Out
To avoid having a harsh line, I’m going to use a little bit of cookie dough and maybe a touch of UV index to buff out the contour. The goal is to achieve a natural and blended effect. Okay, that seems to be giving it the desired look. Let’s continue.
Adding Dimension to the Eyelids
Now, I’ll grab my j14 brush and dip into the same duo shade. We don’t have a lot to work with here, but I’ll put a little bit of this in the crease to add some slight dimension. This will prevent my eyelids from looking flat. Of course, that’s pretty good.
Glittery Center Lid
Next, I’ll take this shimmery shade and use my little finger to apply it right in the center of the lid. This is supposed to create a glittery and reflective look. Hmm, that doesn’t look too great. I don’t want the entire eye look to be dominated by the basic canvas palette, but it might have to be for now. Let me try dipping into a little bit of fin and Gold Coast. Ah, that’s more like it! This achieves the full glittery and reflective effect I wanted.
The Perfect Eyeliner
I bought two different options for eyeliner. The first one is a brown liner from a Japanese brand called super black real lasting eyeliner 24-hour waterproof one day tattoo 10. It was highly recommended to me and I’m excited to try it. The second option is the K palette one day tattoo real lasting eyeliner. I’m not sure if these eyeliners actually last for 24 hours, but let’s find out.
A Language Barrier
The only problem is that I can’t read any of the product information since it’s all in Japanese. Despite that, this brown eyeliner comes highly recommended, so I’m eager to see how it performs.
Thin and Precise
When applying the eyeliner, it’s crucial that it stays thin. I gently rest the brush on my lash line and start creating a wing, just like how Kenny did it on me before. Surprisingly, this might be the best black eyeliner I’ve ever tried. The precision is remarkable, and the end result is stunning.
A Winged Prayer
I proceed to create the wing on the other eye to match, and I say a silent prayer that it turns out just as good. It’s hard to believe, but this eyeliner might even be too precise for its own good.
The Pigmented Eyeliner
When it comes to getting that perfect winged eyeliner look, the key is finding an eyeliner with great pigmentation. And boy, did I find one! The eyeliner from this Hong Kong brand is so pigmented that the second it touches your skin, a thick black line is instantly created. I have to admit, the first time I used it, my wing looked a bit ugly. But with a little practice, I found that a thin little line is all I need to achieve the perfect winged look.
The Secret Technique
One of the tricks I learned from my friend Kenny is to use the j3 right below the original liner. I don’t know why, but it looked so cute when he did it on me. So, I decided to give it a try. And let me tell you, it made all the difference! It added a subtle touch of depth and dimension to my eye makeup, making my eyes pop even more.
The Mascara Dilemma
Now, let’s talk about mascara. Today, I decided to try out the Kiss Me Micro Brush Mascara. This mascara claims to be long-lasting and easy to remove, which definitely caught my attention. The packaging is sleek, and the brush is ultra-fine. But to be honest, I’m not entirely sold on it. It doesn’t seem to do much for my lashes. Maybe I need to give it another try or experiment with different techniques.
The Finishing Touch
To complete the full face of makeup from Hong Kong, I’m going to apply a lip stain. I find that lip stains provide a long-lasting color that doesn’t require constant touch-ups throughout the day. It gives a natural flush to the lips, enhancing their shape and adding a hint of color.
Setting It All in Place
Lastly, let’s set this whole look in place using the Dear Dollia setting spray. I hope it doesn’t add too much radiance, as I prefer a more matte finish. But I must say, I absolutely love how this makeup turned out. It’s a perfect balance of simplicity and elegance. Now, with the setting spray, I can ensure that it stays in place all day long, no matter what Hong Kong throws at me.
And there you have it, a full face of makeup from Hong Kong. From the highly pigmented eyeliner to the lip stain that adds a touch of color, this makeup look embodies the beauty and allure of Hong Kong. Try it out yourself and embrace the essence of this vibrant city.
Makeup in Hong Kong: A Redemption Arc
On that note, you guys, that is my full face of makeup that I purchased in Hong Kong. All complete, I am very proud of myself. Like I said, I tried doing makeup once before and I failed EP. So this to me feels like a really great Redemption Arc.
A Special Shoutout
Once again, I have to shout out my good friend Kenny for really teaching me the ways and giving me the proper tips and techniques. And I also have to thank all the incredible people over in Hong Kong, the different store employees that gave me clearly some really good recommendations for today’s video.
A Disappointing Product
The only thing, the only one product that did not work for me is this stupid silky loose moist powder. This sucks. Oh, I really feel like this would be one of my favorite makeup looks that I’ve ever had on from one of these Challenge Videos. If I did not have that powder, it’s just making my skin look really gross and oily. But everything else honestly worked so well together. I am really impressed and I feel like a lot of these items are actually going to end up in my go-to makeup routine, which is really cool.
