Here is an insight to the "Douyin" trend..
Barbie doll makeup looks have been all the rage in the beauty world, but there’s another trend making waves – the dreamy, ethereal, and dolly makeup, also known as Douyin makeup. This captivating style draws inspiration from various international makeup trends, blending elements from Western YouTube beauty influencers, Japanese manga characters, and Korean superstars. In this blog post, we’ll take a closer look at the Douyin makeup trend and learn how to achieve this doll-like appearance step by step.
The Base : A Flawless and Radiant Canvas
To begin, it’s essential to have a smooth and even base. Start with a lightweight matte whipped makeup primer, like the Maybelline Makeup Perfector 4 in 1. Focus on the T-zone to address visible pores and discoloration. For foundation, opt for a shade 2-3 tones lighter than your skin tone for a radiant and youthful effect. The Sephora Collection Best Skin Ever in a light shade can offer full coverage and a matte finish. Blend it well using a dampened beauty blender for a natural-looking result.
Conceal and Highlight with Precision
For a bright and flawless under-eye area, use a color-correcting concealer palette. Choose a peachy shade to neutralize dark circles and brighten up the under-eye region. Highlight the high points of your face with a full-coverage concealer, 2-3 shades lighter than your foundation. Douyin makeup often features prominent contouring, so use a cool-toned contour shade to sculpt your cheekbones, forehead, and chin. Blend with a damp beauty blender for a smooth finish.
Rosy and Blushed Cheeks for Youthful Innocence
The signature Douyin makeup style wouldn’t be complete without a touch of pink blush. Opt for a mauve yet pinky shade, like Charlotte Tilbury’s Matte Blush Wand in Pillow Talk. Apply a few dots on the apples of your cheeks while smiling and on top of your cheekbones to lift your face. Blend it well with a beauty blender for a youthful and innocent appearance.
The Eyes: Shimmer, Lift and Define
For dreamy, sparkly eyes, use a glitter eyeshadow like Natasha Denona’s Mini Retro Palette in “Galaxia”. Apply it all over your lids for a radiant, wet-looking effect. To elongate and lift your eyes, consider using an eye-lifting strap or eyelid tape. Opt for a thin and sharp brown liquid eyeliner to elongate your eyes without overpowering them. Enhance your lashes with mascara, and add false lashes for length and definition.
The "Aegyo Sal": Enhance Those Cute Eye Bags
A key feature of the Douyin makeup style is the aegyo sal, the cute eye bags right below the lower lash line. To achieve this look, contour the under-eye area with a precise eyeliner brush and a brown eyeshadow or contour shade. Be subtle and avoid making it look like dark circles. Highlight the aegyo sal with a light shade, and consider adding a thin layer of glitter gel for a pop of shine.
Soft Lips for A Subtle Finish
Complete the look with soft and subtle lips. A lip stain like Essence’s Lip Tint in Chili and Chill, a burnt orange shade that turns coral when applied thinly, is perfect for achieving the desired lip color. Focus on applying the product in the center of the lips and blend it to the edges with your fingers.
