Korean Makeup Trends

Korean wave is no longer just in music scene or drama. Now, a lot of people are getting curious of their beauty regimens as Koreans are known for white, smooth and baby skin.

 

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you would know just how popular Korean drama Descendants of the Sun (or #DOTs) has been lately. From giggling schoolgirls to unabashed aunties, the military-medical drama has swept the hearts of females everywhere (much to chagrin of boyfriends and husbands all over, I imagine). You may not be able to have Song Joong Ki (sob), but here’s how to emulate Song Hye Kyo’s simple but elegant makeup look.

1. Dewy Skin

Any Korean star worth her kimchi would know that dewy skin is a must when it comes to Korean beauty. Granted, not all of us can have luminous skin like Song Hye Kyo (life is unfair, after all) so here’s the next best thing – a light-reflecting primer that will give you a bit of glow, such as the VDL Lumilayer Primer.

Apply the primer on a clean face, then apply your usual BB cream or foundation over. If you want to amp up the glow, apply highlighter to the high points of your face, such as your cheek bones, brow bones and nose bridge.

Try Moonshot’s Jelly Pot in Hawaiian Sand, which applies as a gel but has a highly-pigmented powder finish. Be sure to apply it sparingly though – you want to look dewy and Song Hye Kyo-like, not like a disco ball.

2. Puppy Eyeliner

Skip your usual cat eye look and draw your eyeliner downwards, instead of flicking upwards. This makes your eyes look rounder, which in turn gives off a younger, more innocent vibe. For added effect, wave your hands helplessly and say “Ottoke, ottoke!”. Who knows, maybe some handsome Oppa will come to your rescue (Hello Song Joong Ki? Are you free to help a damsel in distress?).
