Why Me?

In short, it doesn’t have to be me.

As a relative newcomer to the cult of k-beauty, there’s a lot I don’t know. I have absolutely no beauty credentials aside from a makeup artist certification, my shopping addiction and credit card statement that backs it up. You have no reason to believe anything I say.  However, I’m a highly opinionated person and fairly resourceful, if I do so myself.

I’m fortunate in that I’ve always had decent skin.  Not perfect.  Not even close. Semi-regular and mostly hormonal break outs from time to time, but who hasn’t experienced those?  It wasn’t until a few years ago that I started noticing the fine lines, small bumps and redness.  Around the same time, I discovered Laneige via an Ambien fueled online shopping binge on Target.  That awakened me to the burgeoning global Asian-beauty trend.

As anyone who knows me would tell you, I am nothing if not full of opinions [and almost completely lacking in fact].  I personally think that is a national trait for most Koreans: we are a culture of know-it-alls.  So that’s where this blog comes in.  At the very least, whether you’re laughing with me or laughing at me, I hope you find your own inspiration, here with the SKINista.
