If you love natural skincare, you’re going to want to know more about Miki Tameishi. Born in Chiba and based in Wellington, she is gaining a loyal following with her holistic approach to beauty, combining traditional Japanese medicine with organic New Zealand ingredients.

Su is a quintessential Parisian, but she’s more into white fungus than chocolate croissants. This beauty blogger is all about taking a truly holistic approach to skincare and while her knowledge of K-beauty is outrageously comprehensive, it’s her unique beauty-enhancing Chinese soup recipe (which she has kindly written up for Yeon & Bee here) that initially caught my eye , and since then, I’ve been dying to find out more of Su’s lifestyle-based tips. Thankfully, she didn’t disappoint.
I met Julie Jang on university campus and had an instant skin crush on her. Does that sound creepy? You know when you see someone whose skin looks like an SK-II ad and you think, ‘Gee, I’ve got to know their secret’. Yeah, Julie has that kind of complexion.
Meet Jordan Turner. She roasts coffee, works at a senator’s office and has the dreamiest instablog (seriously, you have to check it out). She grew up in Payson — that’s where Footloose was filmed — and lives in Salt Lake City. In Utah, the days are dry and Jordan tells us about how she keeps her skin hydrated by using the best of Asian and Western beauty.
Meet Kaycee Woo, a quintessential big-city girl. Born in Seoul, Kaycee now lives in the throbbing heart of Manhattan, studying at Parsons School of Design (jealous yet?). I’ve known Kaycee for many years and she’s always had an amazing eye for beauty and style. Even today, while she is jetsetting from London-Paris-New York, she is disciplined in keeping her skin in top condition. Here’s a little sneak peak into her routine!
A lot of people ask me, ‘how do Korean men take care of their skin — are they as fanatical as the women?’ That’s what prompted my chat with Kangmin, a proud Seoulite and owner of luxe leather store, L.Chamber. Well-groomed and ambitious, Kangmin is the quintessential new generation Korean male.
1.Where were you born? Qing Dao, China. I moved to Canada when I was in elementary school.
2.You know you’re from Qing Dao when? You love sauerkraut, because the city was colonized by Germany for while. They make beer there too.
3.What do you do and why do you do it? I blog on Instagram because I’ve always loved fashion. It started when I was at a job that I wasn’t happy in so I looked for a hobby to focus on and find happiness. Then I realized that it was what I’ve always wanted to do but I was just holding myself back. Don’t hold yourself back!
