Getting Ready with KANEBO

May 20, 2015


I’ve been asked plenty of times about my skincare routine.. and today I will indulge you with my daily morning routine before going out.


Preparation Time: 45 min

For: Normal, Slightly oily skin.

Products Used:

Kanebo Impress Creamy Soap

 Kanebo Eye Essence

Kanebo PT Essence

Kanebo Impress Cream Foundation

Kanebo Lunasol Intellectual Liquid Eyeliner 

 Sigma Brush

Etude House Eyeshadow Pencil

Beyond Liptint


Step 1 – Knowing your skin type & condition!

Before anything else, knowing the problem will help solve many issues! So if you have not done it before, get your skin checked ASAP. I checked mine for free at Kanebo exhibition in Plaza Senayan. My overall skin condition is normal, but slightly close to oily. So the products I use here is suitable for my skin type, but the overall process is the same!


 Step 2 – Cleaning!

Cleaning is essential before applying skincare and makeup.

I am using Kanebo Impress Creamy Soap. Initially, I was afraid that it will dry my skin but surprisingly it leaves the skin moisturized and refreshed. This amazing face soap gives radiant and smooth skin right after I wash my face. It foams up beautifully, the texture is very soft and I just need a tiny amount for the whole face.

Step 3 – Applying Skincare!
After I dry my face with a towel, I apply Kanebo Eye Essence to awaken the eyes. It spreads smoothly and is very moisturizing. This is very important for someone like me who uses eye-makeup almost daily. All of those cosmetics will occasionally makes my eyelid really dry and patchy. So I usually apply this every morning and night time. It also comes with a spatula so that I can give a lifting massage to the eyelids. 


Secondly, I use Kanebo PT Essence to control the excess oil by minimizing the appearance of pores. As previously mentioned, I have a slightly oily skin so applying this serum on my T-zone area and a little bit on the cheek and chin really helps to control the excess oil. I usually spread it on the entire face by pressing the skin lightly. This helps my makeup stays longer without looking like an oil factory!

Step 3 – Makeup, Makeup!
Now that I am done with skincare, lets move to my favorite part of the routine… Makeup!!
Kanebo Impress Cream Foundation has a semi-solid texture that melts at body temperature, so it blends naturally to the skin and gives an even more radiant finish. There’s no applicator included with the foundation. You can use a face sponge to apply it to the face. But as per my personal preference, I’m using my foundation brush from Sigma.

The next step is to apply eye makeup! Use any color that you want for the eyeshadows according to the occasion. Today I’m wearing a glittery brown eyeshadow from Etude House for a casual look. I want my eyes to be bold and sharp, and this Kanebo Lunasol Intellectual Liquid Eyeliner feels very luxurious and has the perfect black color. It comes with a dense and thin tip brush that makes it easy to create a cat-wing. They sell the refill separately so you don’t have to buy the whole thing when it runs out.


TADAAAA! Apply your favorite lipstick and blush… you are ready to go! So this is my final look of the day. Silky smooth skin and bold eye makeup to boost up the confidence. Hope this answers all of your questions about my morning routine! If you are having the same skin condition as me, you might want to try these products and simple steps. And like I said, if you still have no idea about your skin, go check them out for free at a Kanebo‘s Store! XoXo.
