To be successful in this objective, always start with a clean and clear face. Most Eastern Asians are blessed with fair to milky white complexion and fine pores so having porcelain skin comes naturally to them. Their climate is also one big contributing factor but I would still say that we also have to commend Korean women for really taking care of their skin by watching what they eat and practicing a good skin care routine religiously.
Next, what’s very essential in Korean makeup is the BB cream. This liquid foundation/ moisturizer/ sunscreen product is very effective in giving you that dewy, glowing skin provided that you apply it to your face at the right amount and at the shade that suits your complexion.
Whether it be on pencil, liquid or gel form, black eyeliners are a must to Korean makeup as this is what they use to enhance their eyes and make it look bigger. For an everyday fresh but subtle look, they tightline their eyes. Tightlining means lining those spaces between your lashes or lining as close as you possibly could to your lash line.
This method will do wonders in making your eyes look larger, brighter and definitely younger. It will also create what is dubbed as the “invisible” eye makeup that has, most likely, left you baffled as to how Koreans have seemingly defined eyes but actually look like they’re not wearing eye makeup at all.
Except if they are actresses doing concerts and performances, Korean women rarely wear dark and bold eyeshadows. They always go for more neutral colors, champagne shades or just light shimmers for highlighting their lids. At times, they would even opt to not put any.
When it comes to eyebrow grooming, Koreans follow a different style. It’s worthwhile to mention that their method is actually getting popular and is currently dubbed as “Korean brows”. Their usual eyebrows are actually bushy, tousled and very straight. It’s amazing how they can pull off brows like this and still look stunning. The straight eyebrow in particular can give you a look of youthful innocence that’s just great for defining your eyes.
Korean women are blessed with complexion that’s naturally fair. They are fond of using blushes in pink, coral and peach shades in an amount that’s just enough to give a glow that’s healthy. For a flushed look that’s natural, they use tints on cheeks. For a fresh, dewy and porcelain finish, they usually apply highlighters or illuminators on their face’s high points.
Korean women are known for small but plump lips. Notice that most of them have lips that are light in color. Very popular among them are the “just bitten” look which they apply using lip tints (berry color), creating a natural and cute pout. Likewise, they like wearing matte lippies in peach and pink colors.
