If you're like us, you've also probably fallen for Kim Sejeong's girl-next-door charm on A Business Proposal. The K-drama even made us follow her on Instagram, only to find out that she seems as sweet and cool IRL! And after going down the rabbit hole of her many interviews (click here for some fast facts about the actress), we inevitably ran into one that spills some of her beauty secrets.
In a What's In My Bag video for Harper's Bazaar, Sejeong revealed all her daily essentials. This included a very minimal cosmetic collection, because according to the actress, she hardly wears makeup off-camera. "I usually put on sunscreen or a cushion compact and MLBB-colored lipstick," she shared.
Sejeong's go-to's include the YSL Le Cushion Encre de Peau Foundation, a longwear formula with a natural, radiant finish. It was a challenge to ID the exact lip colors she shared, but one of them could be the Romand Glasting Water Gloss in Sanho Crush!
For some on-the-go skincare, Sejeong said she transfers the Kiehl's Calendula Herbal Extract Alcohol-Free Toner into a tiny spray bottle and uses it as a face mist. How convenient!

When it comes to scents, Sejeong's current favorite is My Way, a citrus-floral perfume from Giorgio Armani. Sejeong describes this as a "sweet" fragrance, which is perfect for her taste. She shared, "I don't really like heavy scents. I like fresh fruit scents, citrus, grass scents."
Out of all the beauty items in her bag, she considers this perfume as her ultimate must-have. "I think scents remain with people more," explained the actress.
Aside from being Sejeong-approved, My Way is also loved by perfume pros. It won the Women's Prestige Fragrance of the Year award from The Fragrance Foundation in 2021, thanks to it championing sustainable practices with conciously-sourced ingredients and being a "carbon-neutral" product. The perfume is also refillable, so if you end up loving it as much as Sejeong, you won't need to buy an entirely new bottle!
