Cloud skin: New K-beauty makeup fad you need to know about

Cloud skin, the latest Korean beauty fad has taken the beauty industry by storm. K- beauty trends like glass skin, mirror skin, popsicle lips, and more were a big hit and now, it’s time to say hello to cloud skin.

While other makeup trends gave your skin a dewy finish and luminous look, this look is all about the cloudly appearance and Demi-matte finish to your face more like a soft focus.

Did you know? The term cloud skin was originally coined by M.A.C Cosmetics‘ global senior artist, Dominic Skinner.  The key to nailing cloud skin is to find the perfect balance between the textures layering on your skin – dewy, glowing and matte.

Makeup experts suggest cutting down using the highlighter for it and using translucent powder smartly for just that right amount of sheer illumination to give a light, soft look.

What is important is to blend the products in the right way that makes your skin look seamless and lit from within. The makeup trend became so popular that celebrities like Laura Harrier also took a shot at it.

Cloud skin makeup is the latest fad and preferred by many as it is low maintenance and can be applied on a daily basis, even during extreme humidity. Here is a guide to make your skin look cloudy and matt finish look. Just like your favorite Instagram filter.
