Korean beauty is all the rage now, not just in Asia but across the world. Maybe it’s because of their flawless, clear skin or their effortless, natural look that draws us in. Either way, K-beauty leaves us wanting to look just like them. Here are the top five essentials you need in your arsenal to sport your favorite K-beauty trends:
1. Face Mask
Koreans take really good care of their skin. Part of their regimen are sheet masks to address beforehand any skin dilemma you may have. Trust Korean products to keep dry skin hydrated and oily skin controlled.
If you’re a bit impatient to wait for about 15-20 minutes with a mask on your face, try Neogen’s Bio-peels. These babies will shorten your skin care routine as it exfoliates on one side and smoothens on the flip side.
2. Cushion Compact
Cushion compacts have revolutionized makeup for all of us. Functioning as an effective base and coverage, it still keeps your skin dewy and fresh all day.
Matte lippies are more prominent in the West for full lips, but for Koreans, gradient smoochers are the way to go. And the best way to achieve them come in three options: tinted, gel, or dual-tone lipsticks!
4. Eyebrow Pencil and Eyeliner in Brown
Koreans want a feathered look in their brows, thus their genius product innovation: tinted brow gels. Meanwhile, they still like to define their chinky eyes, whether with a cat eye or puppy liner, although they veer away from the striking sharp look that black liners bring. Instead, they go for brown ones to keep their look young and sweet.
5. Orange Blush
Feigning a sun-kissed glow look, Koreans are making orange blushers trend. While pinks make you look like a doll, corals just give you enough color on your cheeks while still looking natural.
