LOTD: You Have to Try Sandara Park's Strobing Technique
Dewy, but definitely not oily!

Copping the K-beauty world's famed dewy skin could be a struggle if you have oily skin. It seems almost impossible to achieve the right glow without looking like a disco ball in a few hours, considering the amount of highlighter and strobing products required for the look. While it's understandable that you think that way, believe us when we tell you that this isn't true. You can most definitely blur the lines between dewy and oily if you know where you should tone down the shine. Sandara Park is a pro at this, and here's how you can master it, too!

First, start by creating a dewy base. You can use foundation, BB cream, or tinted moisturizer with a semi-matte finish. Now to remove (and prevent!) excess shine, use a powder to set certain areas of the face. And taking notes from Sandara's usual base makeup, it's your jaw, chin, and sides of the mouth that should stay matte! Powder these areas using a small tapered brush to avoid accidentally overapplying.

On the other hand, keep powder away from the top part of your cheekbones, nose bridge, and the tip of your chin to achieve a subtle strobing effect. The logic here is that the center and high points of the face should be more prominent or highlighted, while those on the outer perimeters stay flat. It's the same way painters color their portraits!
