The big day is approaching faster than ever! We partnered with Memebox a cosmetic startup company from San Francisco! Memebox provides exclusive boxes that include trending Korean makeup products. In honor of wedding season, makeup experts from Memebox created 3 boxes for each of you: The Guest, The Bridesmaid, and The Bride. Let’s welcome our guest blogger and makeup artist from Memebox, Jiwon!
We wanted the wedding guest look to be feminine, soft and delicate. The makeup is very natural, and appears almost effortless. The skincare prep before makeup application is meant to leave skin clean, soft and highly moisturized.
Dr. Jart+ Pore Medic Pore Minish Cleansing Bubble – To get skin clean and soft, we chose a gentle cleansing foam. This Dr.Jart+ foam cleanser removes impurities without being harsh on the skin.
MisshaNear Skin Moist Capsule Essence Moisturizer – This very lightweight essence leaves skin highly moisturized and better prepared for makeup application.
IPKN Flash Creme Radiant Primer – Priming the skin before makeup application is very important. This primer can extend the life of makeup and even out skin texture so makeup application is smoother. This primer also gives the skin a beautiful luminous glow.
Catwalk Eye Cheek & Brow Palette #01 Street – This Memebox palette multitasks as brow powder, blush and eyeshadow. The colors are soft and earthy for a pretty toned down feminine look
Too Cool for School Anke Lip Study Water Beam Stick #5 – This subtle colored lip product is lip color, lip shine and lip balm in one! It adds a soft pink hue to the lips that carefully accent the earthy tones in the Memebox palette.
Etude House Mascara – This waterproof mascara adds volume and curl to accentuate the eyes.
XO Black Stick Foundation – This easy to apply foundation comes in a convenient stick form. It evens out skin tone and hides imperfections.
Bridesmaids should look natural and effortless, so we chose products with staying power, and color you can build up.
Dr. Jart+ Pore Medic Pore Minish Primer – This pore minish primer creates a smooth canvas by controlling oil and leaving a matte finish for makeup to adhere.
Iope Air Cushion XP #N23 + Refill – The Iope air cushion compact is one of Korea’s bestsellers since it launced in 2008, with one being sold every 30 seconds. With its innovative technology and formula, it is still a must-have in any makeup routine.
XOXO Memebox I’m Lip & Cheek #01 Romanus – We love multifuncional products, and this one from our private label is exceptional. This creamy nudish-pink is easily blendable and leaves a matte finish.
Haena x Memebox Catwalk Eyeliner #01 Cat Eye – This pencil eyeliner from our Haena x Memebox collection is a creamny, smudge-proof liner that won’t budge all day. It goes on smoothly and is easily blendable for a smokey eye.

Formulated with nourishing oils the shadows effortlessly adhere to skin without creasing or flaking.
Peripara Mascara – This voluminizing mascara will have your lashes looking fuller than ever before! This bristled brush is shaped so you can presicely coat each and every lash fully from the inner to outer corner easily.
Innisfree Green Tea Mineral Mist – Moisturize and freshen up anytime, anywhere! Innisfree’s Green Tea Mineral Mist is a gentle facial mist that delivers instant moisture and revitalization to help relieve exhausted skin. It has Green tea Extract as its key component which is known to gently soothe irritations while also delivering vitamins and minerals beneficial to the skin.
For the bride, we chose products that are long lasting for the wedding festivities – the bride will be showing off some serious glow!
Mediheal W.H.P. White Hydrating Charcoal Mineral Mask – This sheet mask is equivalent to a serious facial. One of our office favorites, if you wear it for 20-30 mins before bed, you’ll wake up with a brighter complexion. This is a great first step in preparing for a big event.
Mediheal E.G.T Essence Gel Eyefill Patch – This under eye patch is highly effective in diminishing dark circles and bags with marine collagen extract being the main ingredient. Stick it in the fridge until it is cold for a more cooling/soothing effect.
Botanic Farm Pearl Shining Primer – We’ve tried so many primers, but nothing compares to this pearl shining primer. Not only does makeup last longer, but it’s the only primer that gives serious glow without looking oily or shiny.
Hera UV Mist Cushion C23 – A holy grail product for flawless coverage! This cushion compact is a foundation, that also functions as a whitening and wrinkle care product. It also includes SPF 50 for full coverage and protection, and is easy to carry around for touch-ups.
Dr. Jart+ BB Mate Contouring 1.2.3 Kit – Cream formulas are easier to work with, and we love how natural the shades are.
XOXO Memebox I’m Cream Blush #05 Emma – This cream blush is super blendable and leaves a lightweight powdery finish for long-lasting color. This pinkish apricot works well on so many skin tones, and can be layered for a brighter look.
Peripara Liquid Eyeliner – Pen liners are our favorite because we can make thick or thin lines, and this one by Peripera is easy to use, and lasts all day. Bonus points for being super smudge proof and waterproof.
Missha Mascara No.1/Volume & Lash Extender – This mascara contains fiber and Spider Silk peptides, for length and elasticity of eyelash extensions.
Pony Shine Easy Glam 3 Eyeshadow Quad #02 Pink Bloom – Very soft, pink-hued colors that can be built up for a bolder look.
Soyoung x Memebox Lovely Lip & Cheek #01 Lovely Peach – A lip and cheek product that leaves a silky, matte finish. It’s so easy to use, and leaves a natural flush.
