Super Easy, Super Fast, Woke-Up-Like-This Glow? Yeah, I Found It

Picky about your products? Need your makeup look to be on point every day? Also love sleeping in? It’s a dilemma, no doubt. Until one K-beauty lover found a few products from Snou Beauty that makes rushed mornings a breeze.


I’m busy. Who isn’t?


Unfortunately, I’m also incredibly picky. I like my makeup to look a very particular way, and I won’t accept any product that doesn’t achieve it. On top of that, I’m a complete snooze button abuser and don’t give myself very much time to get ready in the morning. Pairing that with a six to seven-step skincare routine (that I absolutely refuse to compromise) means I have very little time to put on my face. It’s a stressful life, but with the right products, I manage to get by.


So when Snou Beauty came up on our curations, I was instantly intrigued. Not only is their packaging super practical, but their philosophy aligns right with mine. They describe themselves as “easy-to-use, innovative products to bring out your skin’s natural glow” — to which I say oh, hell yes. I just adore the fresh-faced, glowy, just-got-my-brows-tinted-and-just-so-happen-to-have-perfect-skin-at-all-times look, and I will try absolutely anything that promises they can help me achieve that.


So I did and found two products that will now be joining me in my quest to be the glowiest, dewiest girl in all the land.

Pearl Shining Cover BB


What it is:

A whitening, wrinkle treating BB cream with SPF38 PA++ protection that leaves a dewy, bright finish.


What I thought:

The Pearl Shining Cover BB is really pretty! It’s more on the light coverage side but evens my skin out perfectly for those no-makeup days where I still want a little polish. The dewiness is intense without looking oily and has a nice, fresh smell. (Does anyone ever notice their BBs smelling a bit … plasticky? No? Just me? OK.) It also lasts on my face a good while, getting me through work and happy hour.

Like most BBs, this is a tinge too dark on me, but it’s nothing a tone-up cream can’t fix. I found their Honeymoon Tone-Up Cream to be a great choice to match the shade up to my NW10 pastiness, as it didn’t affect the coverage, consistency, or finish of the BB. For shade-lifting purposes, however, any light-colored cream will do.


Creamy Lip & Cheek


What it is:

A 2-in-1 blusher and lipstick with soft, layerable textures and watercolor finish.


What I thought:

The Snou Creamy Lip & Cheek is one of the most blendable, softest, and easiest cream products I have ever used. More than I love a versatile cream product, I love products I can apply with just my fingers — and that’s exactly what Snou Beauty delivered. Just a few pats brings my skin to LIFE, giving my cheeks and nose (because that’s a LOOK) the most natural yet striking pop of color.



This comes in two shades: Papaya Orange, a warm-toned shade that serves a gorgeous, natural flush, and Peach Pink, a cool fuschia moment that gives a lively, awake affect to your look. They’re perfect on their own, but I love applying the Papaya Orange all over and Peach Pink right on the apples of the cheeks for a multi-dimensional effect.


When it comes to “everyday makeup,” I consider three factors: ease of use, portability, and blendability. As someone who is constantly on the go, I want something fast to apply and easy to carry around for re-application. Snou Beauty is doing just that, and I can’t wait to see what else they have in store.

A nice cushion foundation and easy-to-apply lip product are always my go-to. I recommend the Troiareuke's cushions! They help smooth out my skin and since it's cushion foundation, it's easy to carry around and apply~ I just apply a thin layer all around! I apply chapstick on days like this OR I grab my Mamonde Creamy Tint Color Balm and apply it as I go! The two are always my #1 picks!

I love putting blush across my nose too!! It's so stinkin' cute! I've been eyeing that papaya shade for Fall too...
