So this week I decided to finally break down and try the newest makeup trend. Jamsu, or diving, is kind of weird when you first hear about it. 

You basically apply your cream makeup. I started with Skindinavia Primer Spray. I then applied some Dermablend Professional Cover Creme in Natural Beige with a Morphe m439. 

To conceal and highlight, I applied some LA Girl Pro Conceal HD Concealers in Light Ivory and Light Yellow and blended that out with a dampened Beauty Blender. 

Next I grabbed a Up and Up Stippling Brush and applied some RMS Lip Shine in Bloom to my cheeks. This is technically for lips, but I like the color more as a blush. 

For a bit of a glow, I used a Real Techniques Essential Foundation Brush to sweep some Tata Harper Very Illuminating Highlight onto my cheekbones and the bridge of my nose. 

Then you apply a ton of baby powder in top of that. I used Johnson’s Pure Cornstarch Baby Powder. Like here’s what I look like:


Be prepared to make a mess of whatever you’re wearing and your hair, by the way. 

The you place your face into freezing cold ice water for about 30 seconds. 


This was not pleasant. Believe me. Also, I found that there was still bits of baby powder left in my face. Maybe I put on too much. I don’t know. 

Then you pat dry. Not wipe. Just pat. 


You’re left with a super matte, smooth finish. 


I threw on mascara and brows and went about my day. As usual I used an Anastasia Duo Brush 7 and some NYX Cosmetics Eyebrow Gel in Chocolate. I also used some L’Oréal Voluminous Million Lashes mascara. To finish if off I swept on some Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita. 

About four hours later, I was still matte. 

At the end of the day, I was still super matte. Kind of to the point that I was a little bit nervous it would be hard to remove. 

But it all worked out perfectly in the end. This isn’t something I would go through every day, maybe just save it for special occasions. 

That’s all! See you soon!
