Seo Ye Ji as Ko Moon-Young in the hit TvN drama It's Okay To Not Be Okay has smitten K-Drama fans and non-fans (including BLACKPINK) all over the internet with her feisty character and stellar sense of style. There’s no denying that the actress is gorgeous and uses her foxy good-looks to romance Kim Soo Hyun’s Moon Kang-Tae in the show.
But since we all know that Koreans are experts in barely-there no-makeup makeup, it’ll make you wonder how much makeup Ye Ji wears in the drama. Is her skin really that glassy? Are her eyebrows so perfectly shaped even when they’re not filled in? Luckily, the actress actually showed how she removes her makeup on a 2015 episode of Korean beauty show Get It Beauty.
In the short video, the actress shows how she ever-so-gently removes her makeup by soaking a cotton pad with micellar water for her eyes and cleansing water for the rest of her face. Her trick is to fully wet the cotton puff with her cleanser before leaving it on her skin.
Ye Ji completely soaks the middle of the cotton puff so it'll be a breeze for her to wipe off her mascara and eyeliner.
Here, we see the actress wait a few seconds before gently wiping her eye makeup off.
Voila! Her makeup comes off in a breeze!
For the rest of her face, the actress pumps a very generous amount of cleansing water unto the cotton pad. You can see that it's fully soaked until its corners.
She leaves it on her face again for a few seconds before wiping her makeup off.
She then wipes her makeup off gently, not pushing too much unto the skin, and in an upwards motion.
This technique allows the potency of the micellar and cleansing water remove the makeup effectively without making you rub the cotton all over your face as much. No wonder the actress still looks incredibly young now despite this video being released five years ago!
If you ask us, we see no difference with her before and after photo—except for her less filled-in brows. Guess we're googling "Seo Ye Ji's skincare routine, stat!
