Makeup trends from Asia continue to conquer the world. We understand what jamsu makeup is and how to do it yourself

First, let's figure out what is the specifics of this unusual makeup technique.

Jamsu makeup - what is it?

Jamsu is a new makeup technique proposed by Asian makeup artists. Its essence lies in the fact that after using the primer and foundation, you need to apply a transparent transparent powder to the skin (you can read more about it here), and then lower your face into the water for 30 seconds.This creates the effect of perfectly smooth skin.

How does it work?

The winning feature of this unusual technique is that due to immersion of the face in water, you get an even matte tone and reliable fixation of the tonal coverage even on the T-zone until the end of the day.

After you immerse your face in cold water, the powder will "adhere" to the skin, and the pores will narrow. As a result, during the day the skin will release less sebum. And the makeup will be super resistant.

What do you need?

To create jamsu makeup you will need:

  • cotton pads,

  • tonic,

  • moisturizer

  • foundation,

  • loose powder,

  • concealer.

If you want to make your makeup more expressive, you may also need:

  • lipstick,

  • eyebrow gel,

  • mascara.

How to prepare the skin for such makeup?

Before you start the main step - immersing your face in water - you need to prepare the skin.

  1. Apply primer to your face.

  2. Use foundation and concealer if needed.

  3. Then spread the powder over the face in a thin layer. Then you can proceed to the main stage.

We talked more about preparing the skin for makeup in our video.

To create this makeup you will need:

  • Maybelline New York Dream Satin Fluid Foundation – 10 Natural Beige,

  • NYX Professional Makeup Conceal Concealer Palette. Correct. Contour – 301 Light,

  • NYX Professional Makeup Mineral Finishing Powder,

  • Urban Decay eyeshadow, blush, highlighter palette – Backtalk.

  1. Before applying jamsu makeup, carefully prepare your face for makeup: wipe the skin with a cotton pad with a moisturizing or soothing tonic, apply a moisturizing eye and face cream.

  2. The large amount of powder that will be used in this makeup will dry out the skin, so the use of additional moisture is a must for any skin type.

  3. Spread foundation over your face, correct skin imperfections with concealer.

  4. If you are going to use translucent powder instead of regular powder, it is better to use foundation a tone darker than your skin. To prevent skin highlighted with white powder from looking too pale.

  5. Using a semi-moist cosmetic sponge, spread the powder evenly over the entire face.

  6. The layer should not be made too dense, but it should be tangible.

  7. Dip your face in cold water for 15 seconds (if your skin is dry) or 30 seconds (if your skin is oily).

  8. In case you do not have a water container convenient for such manipulation, take a spray bottle, fill it with cold water and generously sprinkle your face. Wait 15-30 seconds before proceeding to the next step.

  9. Gently pat your face dry with a towel to remove excess water.

  10. Applied cosmetics will remain on the face, because the water "sealed" it on the skin. Makeup will last - you can be sure.

  11. Continue makeup.

  12. Don't be afraid to use even well-pigmented products, as they will gently lay down on the velvety surface of the skin after processing using the jamsu technique.

  13. If your skin feels tight during the day, use a moisturizing spray, mist, thermal water.

Pros and cons of technology

Among the disadvantages of this technique is a rather large time investment. After all, in order for the coating to turn out perfect, the skin will need to be prepared: first, steam it, then clean it with a scrub, treat it with a tonic, and then apply a moisturizer (because otherwise the powder will dry the skin) and wait until it is completely absorbed.

It is clear that these actions, as a rule, are already part of the daily beauty procedure. However, on a regular basis, spending so much time on makeup is unlikely for most girls.

At the same time, the advantages of the jamsu technique are obvious.

  • Firstly, the skin looks more even and smooth.

  • Skin stays matte for much longer, and makeup holds well even in the heat.

  • In addition, the powder plays the role of a kind of barrier that protects the skin from negative environmental factors.

Who doesn't this beauty trick suit?

Since one of the main advantages of this technique is effective matting, owners of dry skin should not abuse it. Otherwise (judging by the reviews of those who have already tried jamsu makeup), even if you generously apply a moisturizer, the skin may become dry by the end of the day and begin to peel off. And if you don't know what skin type you have, you can find it here.
