Get The Look: Kang Mo Yeon | Clozette
Not into K-dramas? Then you don’t know what you’re missing with “Descendants of the Sun (태양의 후예)" – a K-drama that has got Korea, and possibly the whole world, giddy with excitement. It’s what everyone talks about these days; from the good looks of Song Joong Gi, and of course to how beautiful Song Hye Gyo is even while saving people from the ruins of an earthquake.

This KBS drama, filmed in beautiful Greece, is set in a place called 'Urk'. Song Joong Gi plays a soldier (Yoo Si Jin) with a romantic storyline with Song Hye Gyo (Dr. Kang Mo Yeon). The beauty of the Song-Song couple is more than enough to break hearts everywhere. But if we can’t have a dashing soldier to love, the least we could do is try to emulate Song Hye Gyo.

To recreate Song Hye Gyo’s look in the show, keep scrolling down to find out!

Makeup



It’s no wonder why Song Hye Gyo has been the choice model for beauty brands over the years; her flawless skin and never aging beauty makes her the perfect ambassador for Laneige. Her ‘barely there’ makeup can be recreated with just two things – the Laneige BB cushion compact and the Two Tone Lip Bar!

Accessories



Even the smallest things can make a difference in one's outfit. Thank God for the invention of earrings, added with crystals and diamonds, then, as your ear candy can bring all the attention to your face. And Dr. Kang’s choice of H.Stern’s Moonlight Crystal Earrings for her TV appearance is the cream of the crop.

Trust a girl to spruce up her look with subtle accessories even while on a mission trip. Song Hye Kyo uses her own creations with jewellery brand AiNo to exude Dr. Kang’s poise and her simple earring designs – U Turn Stone E and Triple Rolling E -- make her look beautiful even when she’s crying at the brink of death.


Shoes



Song Hye Gyo isn’t tall but that doesn’t mean it would be realistic for her to go around saving people in heels. For petites like her, flatforms are complete life savers and her stylist shows style isn’t confined only to the season by wearing the Junya Watanabe Comme des Garcons Perforated Flatform Hi-tops from the 2015 S/S collection. This pair of shoes may be from a past season, but we can go for the YRU Qozmo Low Key Sneaker, a much cheaper, but still chic, alternative. Don’t forget to enter the code “CLOZETTE” during checkout to enjoy 15% off!

If a girl is going on a date to an isolated island in an abandoned ship, I’m sure a sandal with a little bit of heel is forgivable. Dr. Kang wears this Suecomma Bonnie Modern Strap Sandal which shouts nothing but elegance and comfort.


Style



Linen blouses will be your best friend on a mission trip in Urk; protecting your skin from the sun but yet keeping you cool.

Dr. Kang wears a lot of loose fitting linen blouses, and her favourite brand seems to be Rails, which offers Hunter Button Downs in many different patterns and colours – just the right kind of blouse for Urk. Or go for a cheaper alternative with the lovely baby pink linen piece from Style Nanda!

We’ve been obsessed with feline flicks for quite some time now. No matter how hard it is to get that winged tip right, we still love working it in our daily MOTDs. It’s all about the glam and the fierceness when it comes to our cat eyes.

But if you’re gunning for a softer look and still want that pop in your peepers, maybe the “puppy eyes” beauty trend is the thing for you.

Torn? We’ve weighed down these two trends to help you decide! 

--------------------------

Puppy Eyes



Instead of flicking your eyeliner upward, this eye makeup look can be achieved by following the line of the upper and lower corner of your eyes, forming a triangle, and filling them in. No more worrying whether or not your tips are of the same length!

It’s also the best to go for if you’re gunning for a softer and subtler look, perfect for a casual day out.
Cat Eyes



Still, cat eyes hold a special place in our hearts. If you’re one of the lucky ones who has already perfected the art of winged tips, then it’s really hard to not take advantage of such a skill. 

So for fiercer and striking looking peepers, this is definitely the eye look you would want to go for.


The Verdict



Try them both! It you have the luxury of time, experimenting with different cat eye looks is fun and exciting. It also elevates your eye makeup game into a different level.

But if you’re in a hurry and still want to enhance the natural beauty of your eyes, the puppy eye look will highlight your eye shape and add the illusion of voluminous lashes instantly. Totally a win-win!
