With the Koreans’ clear obsession for flawless beauty, it isn’t surprising that fresh and unique makeup styles emerge every other month. Through the Laneige Perfect Renew Regenerator global launch in Singapore recently, we were lucky to meet Cat Koh, Laneige’s Global Makeup Artist, who guided us through six trending K-makeup looks of the moment.


So if you're a fan of Korean beauty, or beauty in general, keep reading for the six Korean beauty trends you should be trying right now!

Puppy Eyes Makeup

Korean girls are now choosing adorable puppy eyes – as opposed to the fierce cat-eye flick – that are round and irresistibly affectionate. To create this look, line the mid-slant of your eyes by creating a downward flick and connecting it to the lower lashline to the middle.

Once connected, there should be a small triangle pointing to the south. Fill in the gaps with black eyeshadow. For the remaining space underneath the eyes, fill in with shimmery white eyeshadow for that beckoning look.

Mul-Gwang Makeup

Looks like the dewy, radiant look that is quintessentially K-beauty is not going away any time soon. With the rise of the BB makeup cushions, the moist Gwang texture can be easily achieved with just a few dabs of the BB Cushion’s sponge on the face. Lightly set with translucent powder to keep the luminous, ethereal glow.


Aegyo Sal Makeup

Yes – showing off your eyebags is now a thing. Koreans are creating the illusion of eyebags to give off a sweet, youthful look. To get eyebags sans surgery, wash the lid with soft beige makeup. Create an illusion of a larger crease by applying the brown halfway – a bit above your normal crease.

In a gentle swiping motion, balance the shadow underneath by applying soft brown eyeshadow under the eyes. Make sure to leave a space to fill in shimmery white eyeshadow in between the lower eyes and brown shadow. The after-effect would be that coveted Aegyo Sal look.


Gradation Makeup

Koreans may be slightly subtle on the eye makeup department, but they love their lip colours. Getting the gradation lip look is quite simple. First, fade out your lips’ edges with concealer. Then, gently dab a bold matte lip tint on the center and purse your lips. Seal off with lipgloss for a more three-dimensional finish.


Cherry Blossom Makeup

For a circular doll-like effect, pink blushes are lightly tapped on the apples of the cheeks. The cherry blossom look does not confine the pinks to their cheeks – they are also applied generously on the eyelids. Soft and light to the eyes, it delivers an ultra-feminine and romantic look.


Vampire Makeup

The vampire makeup utilises a palette made up of wine, champagne and burgundy colours. Set against light, fair skin, it usually features a pair of smokey eyes – usually complemented with a sleek liner fleek – paired with dark lip colour for a sexier vibe.

Fun fact: our very own Clozette Ambassador, Melissa Ferosha, was also one of the Style Influencers specially selected by JRunway.




The audience was also treated to a colourful dance display by *Asterisk -- expressing music, dance and visual imagery through the synchrony of these three elements. The performance drew the undivided attention of the audience with every wave of the arm, beat of the music, and flash of light.




The runway show also had the audience excited for the upcoming collection that were very practical for our region's climate with layering of practical cotton pieces and accessorizing with knitted beanie or plaid shawls to add the autumn/winter touches to our outfit.

Get tight with Tights

Before you declare your disgust for tights, don't because this stretchy fabric can actually make or break an outfit. Adding tights to a simple dress is life-changing, especially when you want to add something special to your outfit. It’s perfect to keep yourself warm during the cold nights and it can double up as accessories with its different prints! Pair your dress and tights with some closed-toe heels or boots for an easy, chic look! 

And the best part? This can always be dressed up or down, so you can wear this to all holiday parties and celebrations you're attending! 

Wear T-Shirts the right way

While wearing a T-shirt to a glamorous party seems like a big no-no, there are still ways it can be done! Just take your favourite one, it can be as simple or as crazy as you like, and pair it with some feminine pieces such as a high-slit skirt and heels! The difference of the 'elegant' and the 'casual' beautifully clashes and will give a typical item of clothing a new look!


Be a Trousers kind of gal

Whether they’re cigarette, flared, or tapered, trousers can be your party wardrobe staple for years to come. You can pair it with your new dresses to stay on top of the trends — in case you forgot, trousers plus dresses are a thing now — or a feminine or simple top to give it a sophisticated finish! Just blend the right bottoms with the right top (or dress) and accessories for a clean and fun combination!
