Ever wonder what's inside a K-drama actress' makeup bag? Well, today, you're about to find out as we take a peek at what's inside Korean beauty icon and Hi Bye, Mama! star Kim Tae Hee's very own purse. She revealed some of her pouch essentials to Get It Beauty back in 2016—which we know sounds like such a long time ago, but it was actually the first (and seemingly last) time she shared her beauty secrets on TV! So without further ado, keep scrolling to cop her go-to picks!
1. Hand Cream
Hand cream is a must for the actress all year round, and she thinks everyone should have them in their beauty pouch. In case you need recos, she keeps a peony-scented one from the Korean brand Duft & Doft!

2. Acne Patches
Tae Hee says that because of her combination skin, she often gets blemishes on her forehead, cheeks, and chin. Whenever that happens, she whips out her pimple patches and places them over her zits to heal them faster.

3. Face Cream
According to Tae Hee, she swears by her "pink cream" because the rosy tone kept her skin looking bright and dewy all day, and that it also works as a night cream. Unfortunately, the exact one that she was talking about has been discontinued (Hanskin's Real Complexion Cream EX Pink Tone Up Cream), but tone up creams are so trendy recently that you can find one in practically every K-beauty brand!

4. Lip Balm
The actress carries a variety of lip moisturizing products in her pouch to keep her pout soft and supple. "When my lips are very dry and peeling, I'll use ones with oil then wipe with a wet tissue. That eliminates the dead skin and it feels like the lines lessen," she shares. When she needs moisture and a hint of color, she swipes on a tinted lip balm. Check out two of her go-to products below!

5. BB Cream
The only makeup product in Tae Hee's pouch is BB cream, which she says she puts on before she goes out. In the video, she points to the Hanskin Bio Origin Royal Ampoule BB EX as her favorite for how easy it is to apply and how natural it looks. Sadly, this has been discontinued, too, so here are ones to check out instead.
